  • "Lovely cottage, well equipped, big comfy sitting room and a little study."

    I wonder why the small bedroom upstairs doesn’t have a proper single bed rather than a put-up bed which was not that comfortable, seeing as there is plenty of living space downstairs.

  • "The cottage was just as beautiful as we remembered from last year."

    It was clean and well equipped and very comfortable apart from the large settee. The welcome basket was generously stocked and there is a lot of attention to detail that made us feel welcome and well looked after.

  • "Stoneycroft was just amazing, we had a lovely stay."

    Giggleswick is a beautiful village and Settle just a ten minute walk away, which had lots of great shops and restaurants. We would definitely come back to Stoneycroft and stay again - it has everything you can possibly need. Beautifully furnished and decorated and very comfortable and clean.

  • "Cleaners do a wonderful job as this often goes unnoticed."

    The cottage was a delight, the only drawback is outside space but we used the church to sit with our chairs & a cuppa. Enjoyed the peace. Giggleswick is a wonderful place I hope to use Skye’s again & trust the standards of cleanliness is as acceptional as the cottage was

  • "Beautiful and well equipped cottage in lovely location."

    Loads of things to do in the area and good pubs and restaurants close by in Giggleswick and Settle. Lovely welcome pack on arrival. Church bells were not a problem. Only slight downside is that lack of parking might be an issue if more than one car

  • "Fabulous cottage very close to pub and a ten minute walk into Settle for the shops."

    The cottage was well equipped and had everything we needed for our break. Lots of great walks from the door and of course further afield. The bells did not bother us at all and we all came home feeling relaxed and refreshed.

  • "The property was comfortable and well equipped."

    Parking could have been an issue as the village was very congested and parking was on a first come first served basis. The cottage was quaint and the village and surrounding areas offered scenic walks.We enjoyed our stay.

  • "A comfortable and well appointed cottage with a homely feel."

    Stoneycroft is perfectly situated for exploring the Yorkshire Dales. You can walk from the door and climb Giggleswick Scar from where you can enjoy beautiful views across to Ingleborough. It is within easy driving distance of beautiful places such as Malham Cove. The welcome pack was much appreciated, including the ear plugs which are much needed as the church bell rings through the night.

  • "This property was so lovely!"

    You could tell a lot of care had gone into making the place feels so cosy. Perfect position for venturing around the Dales and only a short walk into the village with lots of great local pubs serving amazing food. We absolutely loved this cottage and would love to return in the future - highly recommend!! (only slight thing was that one of the shower doors had come off the runner but this did not cause issues with us using it) Many thanks :)

  • "A comfortable, clean and characterful rental in an ideal location."

    The attraxtive house was very well equipped - every kitchen utensil you need, plenty of wood for the fire, a variety of lighting, helpful maps and information, and with a really generous basket of goodies for arrival. But very surprisingly there wasn't a hair dryer - had to buy one while away. There were not enough mugs and teaspoons either, bearing in mind folk have a lot of coffee and tea during a day. The shower door was broken too which was very unsatisfactory indeed. The property lists a 'patio' - totally misleading as basically a small open-to-the-lane slate-chipped covered space putside the back door. Photograph shpuld be in listing to clarify. The adjacent church's bells were a gentle sound, not an issue at all despite the provided ear plugs! .

    The cottage has so much character and many traditional features whilst also including all the modern utilities one could need. The location is a short walk away from settle so there are pubs, bars, shops and a supermarket within easy reach. There are scenic walks of different lengths in the area to suit everyone too. I highly recommend this place to adults wanting to explore the dales by long walks or for those just wanting to escape the normal routine in a beautiful and relaxing setting.

The property

Near to the River Ribble, on the fringes of the Yorkshire Dales, lies this lovely end of terrace stone cottage,Stoneycroft, in the quaint village of Giggleswick.

You'll be delighted with the pretty decoration and traditional feel of this property, renovated to a modern standard whilst keeping the authenticity, perfect for a couple's romantic retreat.

You can get the open fire going, set within a beautiful large original stone hearth in the sitting room on those colder winter days, settle on the sofas in front of a film and relax in this splendid room, complete with exposed stone feature wall and fairy lights to add a special sparkle.

The under-floor heated slate flooring will take you into the gorgeous open-plan kitchen and dining room, hosting a farmhouse-style dining table with bench seating while the kitchen is a haven for culinary enthusiasts with the large double oven and five ring gas hob, all underneath the exposed wooden beams above.

Sit at the window seat with a good book on a rainy day, or if you can't get away from the office completely it can come with you, with a study tucked behind the sitting room for when you need a morning of answering those important emails.

Up the stairs to the first floor will bring you to the two double rooms, with the master bedroom having windows on both sides of the room, one looking out to views over the peaceful churchyard, and adorned in delightful ornaments and decor.

Switch the fairy lights on and set some time aside to spend soaking in the bath tub in the calming bathroom, which also has a separate walk-in shower, for those mornings when you need to be up and out.

The property also benefits from a third bedroom which contains a sofa-bed to allow for more flexible sleeping arrangements if needed, or use as a snug for another place to wind-down and relax.

To the outside there is a small patio area at the back which gets the evening sun, so you can sit out on the table and chairs with a glass of wine, with on-road parking just opposite.

Stroll up the lane and pop over to the local pub, Harts Head, for some delicious food and drinks, and afterwards carry on further down to towards Settle to stroll along the River Ribble as the sun goes down over the dales.

The larger neighbouring village of Settle is an old market town and has lots to offer in the way of independent shops, cafes and restaurants, and is surrounded by limestone landscape full of meadows, peaks, waterfalls and sheep!

Of course being right next to the vast Yorkshire Dales National Park you have to head out for some walking, no matter what your experience there are planned routes for beginners and avid walkers, or maybe hire some bikes see as much of the stunning scenery as possible!

Once you've stayed at Stoneycroft, you will have difficulty tearing yourself away from this beautiful cottage with its great location and charming features.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £50.

About the location


Settle 1 mile; Malham 6 miles; Skipton 16 miles.

This delightful Ribblesdale village lies below a limestone scar (part of the Craven fault) and just across the river from the bustling market town of Settle. It’s an incredibly pretty place with sturdy houses and cottages, many dating back to the 17th century as the ‘date stones’ over their doorways will confirm. Today the village is still centred around the beautiful St Alkelda’s church, which dates back to the 12th century and the well-known landmark of the domed chapel at the famous Giggleswick School, which dominates the village skyline. Giggleswick itself has two pubs, whilst the wide ranging amenities of the nearby market town of Settle are within easy walking distance. Further afield is the town of Ingleton with its splendid waterfall walk and of course (for the serious walker) the Three Peaks are nearby.
