  • “A delightful cottage in a perfect ...”
    A delightful cottage in a perfect village setting. I used it as a base for hill walking and it was absolutely ideal. The village had two great friendly pubs, both serving delicious food. I'll be back!

About the location

GIGGLESWICK

Settle 1 mile; Malham 6 miles; Skipton 16 miles.

This delightful Ribblesdale village lies below a limestone scar (part of the Craven fault) and just across the river from the bustling market town of Settle. It’s an incredibly pretty place with sturdy houses and cottages, many dating back to the 17th century as the ‘date stones’ over their doorways will confirm. Today the village is still centred around the beautiful St Alkelda’s church, which dates back to the 12th century and the well-known landmark of the domed chapel at the famous Giggleswick School, which dominates the village skyline. Giggleswick itself has two pubs, whilst the wide ranging amenities of the nearby market town of Settle are within easy walking distance. Further afield is the town of Ingleton with its splendid waterfall walk and of course (for the serious walker) the Three Peaks are nearby.
