  • "Absolutely perfect cottage in every way."

    In fact, the rooms were all larger in real life than they appeared in the photo gallery! Andy and Tracey, the owners, are very approachable and lived only 5 minutes drive away. A lovely touch was the basket of goodies, plus more in the fridge, and the vase of tulips on the table.

  • "One of the cleanest and most comfortable properties we have stayed in."

    Well situated for public transport and for walking into Settle. We appreciated the welcome basket.

  • "Excellent. One of, if not the best holiday lets I've stayed in."

    This is a lovely deceptively-spacious home, excellently equipped, spotlessly clean, and everything is the highest quality - furnishings, decoration, amazingly comfy beds & those sofas are fab as is the generously family-sized dining table. Booked for the new year with my children, and we were extremely comfortable. Great for spending quality time together. Loved it. I should add: The kitchen is a dream, as is the shower, and you can do your laundry too. Perfect. The hosts have got everything right here - not only a lovely place to stay, but great communication & made to feel very welcome. Thanks!

  • "Excellent! Booked for my parents to stay there for a few days whilst their house move was taking place."

    Spotlessly clean everywhere - lovely large kitchen with all mod cons, comfortable lounge & good quality bedding. Sadly too cold to sit out in the pretty well kept garden! Would definitely recommend.

  • "The cottage was better than we imagined it to be."

    The perfect get away for the winter. Warm, cosy, all on one floor so the baby could roam. Welcome basket was the best we’ve ever received. Location is perfect to get into town and carry out the local walks. Really recommend this to anyone looking at booking. You can see the effort that’s g

  • "I would definitely recommend this cottage."

    We have had a lovely stay at Glen Lea this last weekend. The kitchen was fully equipped with everything you could need and the bungalow was spotless when we arrived. A comprehensive hamper was available which included milk, bread, orange juice and even a bag of ice in the freezer (as well as other things). The owners really have thought of everything. We had a problem with one of the radiators while we were there and when we contacted the owner he was there within half an hour to fix it. Thanks Andy!! The cottage is within walking distance to the local shops, restaurants and cafes in Settle and we had a lovely trip out to nearby Kirby Lonsdale.

  • "Excellent location good size property."

    I would highly recommend and return. Appreciated hamper and cleaning products. Think you could do with some bench cushions as it was hard on the bum after a while!

  • "Beautiful property."

    Very clean, warm and comfortable. Very comfortable bed. Well equipped kitchen. Comprehensive welcome pack, much appreciated. Excellent location, 15 minutes stroll from Settle. Please note, the directions given by Sykes state the property is on the left after the roundabout, when in fact it is on the right.

  • "A lovely well presented and comfortable property which is also really well equipped."

    A definite home from home. Nicely situated just a short walk from the shops, cafes and restaurants. So whether you eat in or out there’s something for everyone. With so many beautiful places to visit almost on your doorstep we hardly used the car but literally walked miles.

  • "Almost perfect, but could do with some small tables in the lounge as there is nowhere to place drink glasses other than on the floor."

    Otherwise, very comfortable and with every facility needed.

  • "Great holiday cottage."

    We used it as a base for taking part in The Yorkshire 3 Peaks Challenge and it was perfect for that. Spotlessly clean, very comfortable, well equipped and very responsive owners. No hesitation in recommending Glen Lea for a stay in the Yorkshire Dales.

About the location


Malham 6 miles; Skipton 17 miles; Kendal 25 miles.

The bustling market town of Settle lies at the south west rim of the Yorkshire Dales National Park, nestled beside the largest outcrop of limestone in Britain - a region of scars, cliffs, caves and potholes - amongst some of the most picturesque scenery in North Yorkshire. Tuesday is market day in Settle, when the square is filled with stalls offering a wide variety of crafts and goods. The market place is surrounded by local businesses, the centre being dominated by The Shambles, an historic three storey building with shops on two levels and houses above, and the Town Hall. There is a good selection of restaurants and pubs and a public swimming pool. The Victoria Hall has entertainment and other activities such as folk nights throughout the year. The famous Settle-Carlisle Railway crosses some of the most beautiful and inspiring upland scenery in the country. Natural attractions such as Malham Cove and Gordale Scar are within easy reach, as are the nearby Dales towns of Skipton and Malham. Settle is in the midst of excellent walking country and is a good base for touring the Dales, the Lake District and the Forest of Bowland.
