  • “We have had a lovely week at Rambler's retreat - a very well equipped cottage that meets all your needs.”

    Would suggest you take robes/extra towels for the hot tub. We had a few issues with Netflix, not sure if anyone esle has but it was frustrating when the signal/connection was lost.

The property

Ramblers Retreat affords an enviable location positioned on the edge of Settle, surrounded by North Yorkshire’s sought-after countryside and green spaces.

This attractive, stone-built end terrace provides the ideal abode for couples or a group of friends seeking a pleasant trip to the area, where walking and exploring come in abundance.

You will be welcomed into the cottage by an entrance hallway providing access to the two double bedrooms and a shower room, each well-appointed for the enjoyment of your stay.

Climb up to the open-plan living area and while away your down time with a good book.

You can relax on the sofa and turn on the TV for a spot of entertainment or reminisce over the day you’ve just had exploring the local area at your own leisure.

Cook up a tasty meal in the kitchen and get together with friends at the dining table of an evening, perhaps followed by a game of cards over a bottle of fine wine.

Spend a summer’s evening soaking up your natural surroundings in the courtyard garden, and enjoy the luxury of having some relaxation time in the bubbling hot tub.

The outside space is fully enclosed and gives access to a storage cellar for your bikes.

Right on the doorstep, the town of Settle offers many local amenities including a golf club and swimming pool as well as a rich heritage for you to enjoy.

This traditional market town is in the heart of towering peaks, vast dales full of wildlife and tumbling waterfalls creating a romantic backdrop to any snapshot, perfect for those seeking adventure and a change of scenery.

Take a trip to Malham Cove and admire the long-lasting views before you venture across to the limestone ravine of Gordale Scar.

Find yourself caught up in the history of Skipton Castle one day and even escape to the Forest of Bowland where you will get lost in dramatic sweeps of open moorland on foot, by bike or even on horseback.

With so much to see and do in this delightful patch of England, you will find everything you’re looking for at Ramblers Retreat.

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.
