The property

Settle 0.7 miles.

Lychgate Cottage is a delightful cottage resting just outside the popular market town of Settle in Giggleswick, Yorkshire close to the Three peaks area of the Dales.

Ideal for two couples or a small family, this charming dwelling offers a quirky layout and warming woodburning stove making it a perfect base all year round.

Arriving at the property, parking is located just outside near the quaint church, before stepping into your home away from home for the trip.

Enter into the living/dining room and settle in for the evening to watch TV while the woodburning stove crackles in the background.

From here, make your way to the kitchen to whip up a delicious meal for your group to enjoy as a family at the dining table; the kitchen hosts an electric oven and gas hob, as well as a handy dishwasher to assist with the cleanup.

As the evening draws to a close, head upstairs to rest your eyes in one of two double bedrooms.

The first bedroom is mezzanine-style and accessed via a separate set of stairs, allowing plenty of privacy for couples.

The second bedroom is located up the second set of stairs where you will also find a sleek bathroom so you can freshen up between activities or indulge in a long soak with a good book.

Outside, you can enjoy a coffee on the patio in the crisp morning sun before the rest of your group rises.

If you want to venture out for the evening, a 5 minute walk takes you to the Harts Head Hotel, why not treat your group to a pint or two?

The area and surrounding villages will not leave you short for activities and attractions, with the plenty of shops including Booths supermarket, pubs and eateries to fuel your excursions.

Settle railway station is 0.9 miles from the cottage for trips on the historic Settle-Carlisle railway over the impressive Ribblehead viaduct.

Additionally, hikers can plan walks from local stations on this line as well as Giggleswick station being 1.1 miles from the cottage with services to historic Lancaster.

If you prefer to do your exploring by foot, head to Ingleborough Estate Nature Trail and follow the varying wooded trails which lead to Ingleborough Cave.

The caves can be toured and boast lit pathways and fossils, or you can venture slightly further to the UK's longest cave, White Scar Cave. The stunning Malham Cove and Gordale Scar are only 8 miles away.

Lovers of wild swimming can swim at Stainforth Force, which is 2.5 miles away, about an hours walk on the Ribble way or a few minutes drive, park at Stainforth village.

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.
