    “Perfect Christmas Break- would highly recommend”

    If you are looking for somewhere really special to stay this is the place to stay. The accommodation is furnished to an extremely high standard, decorated beautifully and the owners are more than generous. We could not fault it and are looking to stay again ...

    If you are looking for somewhere really special to stay this is the place to stay. The accommodation is furnished to an extremely high standard, decorated beautifully and the owners are more than generous. We could not fault it and are looking to stay again. We arrived on the Friday with Hazel and Charlie greeting us with warm mulled wine and mince pies. They had also left us some milk in the fridge. They gave us loads of advice on the area and always a warm greeting in the morning. What made this even more special were the little touches. HAzel had decorated the house beautifully and left a stocking of small presents under the tree for us to open on Christmas day. On Christmas day she also left us 2 glasses of buck fizz on the door step. We were also luck to get some fresh egg laid by the hens on the farm and fresh vegetables. The Craven arms down the road (3 minute walk) also does excellent food. The cottage also has lots of walking guides which we made full use off. The cottage was really peaceful and a views out of the bedroom window was incredible.

The property

This spacious first floor conversion of a detached stone-built barn is located in the grounds of the owner’s farmhouse on the outskirts of Settle, just over a mile from this ever-popular old market town.

Set amongst Dales countryside, this is a first-class holiday home to really get away from it all.

Recently fully restored using much imagination and design flair, the existing owners have gone to great lengths to ensure that Melsome provides stylish and modern accommodation for all their guests.

Enter the retreat via an external stone-built staircase and balcony area into the central hallway.

The main living area is a real delight with a marvellous open-plan design.

The bespoke corner kitchen is well-equipped and there is a central breakfast bar which serves as a dining area.

The lovely sitting room boasts a warm and cosy woodburning stove, a great place to be on a cold winter's night, snuggling up in front of the fire with a warm drink and a good book.

The spacious master bedroom features a super king-size double bed, fabulous A-framed beams and lovely views of the surrounding countryside including the herd of Alpacas and sheep grazing in the adjoining field.

Add to this luxurious mix a modern shower room with walk-in power shower and all the ingredients are there for a superb Yorkshire Dales holiday.

Guests can sit on the balcony and enjoy views out towards the limestone fells and maybe catch the odd steam train going past.

With a myriad of paths, lanes and bridleways from the doorstep, guests can experience walking and cycling through some of the most scenic countryside in the Yorkshire Dales, whilst for the more experienced and energetic guests there is of course the famous Three Peaks challenge.

The Settle Loop is a bridleway which can be walked, cycled or enjoyed on horseback.

For those less inclined towards the great outdoors, there are many sightseeing activities in the area.

Visit the Trough of Bowland, an AONB, or head into the heart of the Yorkshire Dales National Park.

A first class holiday home for two.

Note: This property can be booked with Ref. 981715 together they can sleep 4.

About the location

SETTLE

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.
