  • "Well equipped, nicely decorated cottage."

    The owners have included all the items you need to make it a home from home. Really lovely kitchen with everything you need. There was tea, coffee, sugar and fresh milk provided as well as a bottle of prosecco. There were also a few basic condiments and cooking oils which was a welcome a lot of places we've stayed don't provide these. Tons of useful information on the local area and walks and a big array of toys, board games and DVDs were also provided. The cottage was well-presented tidy and clean in the main areas that mattered. There was quite a lot of dust and cobwebs however that hadn't been addressed. From a comfort perspective this is a personal preference of course, most visitors commented on comfy beds but for me they were too soft and meant a lot of difficulty sleeping. But it's hard to please everyone on mattress preference. All the garden chairs have fixed-width arms, which means for a wider person these are uncomfortable and pinch. I found the sofa and armchair in the living space really comfy but only enough room for 3 people to sit so if 4 people are staying at the cottage then one person misses out. A non-slip mat for the shower would be beneficial and some shelf space in the bathroom would also be a welcome addition. We really enjoyed the hot tub, this is a great addition and really fantastic to relax in after a long hike. Easy to park one car outside the front and space for other cars in the Mill car park next door. A lovely place from which to explore the Dales.

  • "Had a great week at Ramblers Retreat."

    Well maintained property with lots of space for a family of four. Loads of fantastic walks in close proximity to the house and the hot tub was a real bonus. Would be good if one of the beds was a twin instead, as would work better for families. Overall we had a great time and would highly recommend to anyone wanting to be close to all of the sites in the Dales.

  • "The cottage overall is amazing, but we did find the couch extremely uncomfortable and the view from the bedroom of that roof is terrible."

    Fortunately you don’t have to go very far for the views. Hot tub is an excellent addition and was used every evening. Plenty of blankets for the dog and the enclosed garden was secure enough for my small Chihuahua.

  • "Nice property, a lot of money spent getting it in good order."

    Poorly described by Sykes, missing essential safety features. On a busy road with heavy traffic at peak times. Accessed from side gate with several steps down to the hot tub, then several steps up to the door and then staircase up to living area. Having said that, once inside it is very, very comfortable and a good spot to tour the Dales.

    Some aspects were excellent, well-equipped kitchen, lovely hot tub however, shower not great, poor quality bedding especially duvet, uncomfortable sofa. Access difficult, uneven / steep steps down into garden and up to door of cottage. We enjoyed but won't return.

    Thanks for your feed back. We are having are have a new Bathroom fitted in January. Electric showers aren't always the best. The bedding is all good quality. The duvet is a silent night one and only a year old. You are the only person who mentioned bedding. Everybody else says how nice the beds are. The steps outside are shown in the picture on sykes website of the cottage to let people know. We have never had a complaint about the settee before either. We had already ordered a new settee 3 months ago as the cottage is having a mini re vamp in January we are having the old settee at our house as we dont find it uncomfortable .Sorry you won't be staying again. Maybe you will find somewhere else to your liking in the future. Take care and have a nice Xmas and newyear Property Owner

    The cottage is well equipped with everything thought of, although the outside seating is a little tired. The hot tub is great and we used it everyday. Parking is just outside at the front. Behind the cottage is the mill shop and cafe, but this does not affect the cottage as you look over the top of the mill from the cottage. For those with mobility issues access would be difficult as you have to go down steps, across the yard and then up more steps to the front door. Some of the steps are uneven.

Great walks on the doorstep and a good rail-link if you dont want to use the car. Then there is the amazing hot tub to return to, something we took advantage of everyday, private and secluded.

  • "We had a great week at the Ramblers Retreat."

    A week didn’t feel long enough to explore all of the gorgeous scenery. We spent our days walking and evenings recouperating in the hot tub. So many wonderful walks within settle and so many others in the surrounding villages. I downloaded outdoor active, that was super helpful for finding new routes and places to walk wherever we were, you can track your own route or follow someone else’s and pick length/difficulty etc. The cottage and facilities were exactly what you need all of the home comforts, good bed, cutlery/crockery and ability to cook a proper meal, if you’re so inclined. As the cottage is bedrooms downstairs and living/kitchen upstairs and stairs down into the cottage courtyard. It can feel like another mountain to climb after a long walk. The hot tub definitely helps rejuvenate you after a day of walking, utter bliss especially when we found the setting that focussed on legs!! We loved the talbot arms and the naked man bakery/cafe If you want lovely fresh bread/cakes get there early to avoid disappointment! A lovely cottage, in a lovely village. We will definitely be back - if you’ll have us!

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.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £250.

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.
