  • "Our stay at Dallicar house with our extended family was amazing!"

    The rural setting was simply stunning and the facilities in the house made our stay very comfortable especially with children. The hot tub, barbecue, fire pit, beddings and the well equipped beautiful kitchen were a stand out. Our children were excited to meet cows and sheep grazing right next to the property. Highly recommend this property for a peaceful nature retreat. Elaine (host) was very helpful and promptly responsive to our queries. Thank you and we would love to visit Dallicar again.

  • "Lovely, super clean, well maintained property."

    Not overlooked. Beautiful views. A pub within walking distance and a slightly longer walk to the sweet little town of Settle. Lots of things to do and see in the surrounding area. Hot tub was well used so the provision of robes was very helpful.

    The stunning views were framed by every window you looked through, and after a days walking there was nothing better than a soak in the hot tub. We enjoyed the friendliness of the sheep and cows looking in through one of the windows too! Thank you very much to Micael & Elaine.

  • "This house and setting is simply stunning!"

    Absolutely everything has been thought of by the owners. A lovely welcome basket with nibbles and prosecco was provided, dressing gowns in each bedroom which is perfect when using the hot tub. We were here celebrating our 40th birthdays and had 2 lovely ladies come to do spa treatments and a private chef to cook for us on night, the kitchen and dining area was perfect for this. We will definitely be highly recommending this property and already looking at dates we can get together to return.

    ! Everything about it is so classy and finished to the highest spec. It has to be the best one we've stayed in. We are 5 older or shall I say mature ladies and totally enjoyed the luxury as well as the stunning scenery made extra special seeing the animals everyday along with rabbits and what I think was a stoat family playing in the back field. We would definitely return her and thoroughly recommend it

    In fact, the photos don't do it justice, it is so much better in real life. We were really blown away with it all. Clean, spacious with a beautiful and well considered layout. We used it as a base for our wedding at the Tithe Barn Bolton Abbey. It's a 30min drive away but staying here made it worth the distance! We're already considering rebooking for our anniversary next year!

    We have stayed in many properties but this is our favourite. Comfy beds, powerful showers, underfloor heating - and a lovely welcome pack ! We started our week wearing shorts and at the end of the week we made a snowman. It was lovely sitting in the garden watching the new born lambs. Michael and Elaine are very friendly and helpful hosts - hope to return soon.

    What was really nice was it was Halloween weekend and there was pumpkins all around the kitchen and a happy halloween balloon again much appreciated. There was nine girls staying there and we all loved the spacious house and bedrooms, all with there own en suite bathrooms, again all done to a very high spec, we had one small hiccup with the hot water which was soon and efficiently sorted. We were unlucky with the weather ( lots of rain ) but it didn’t stop us enjoying the lovely outside space and hot tub and amazing all round views. Would we return? Yes in a heartbeat, hopefully we will return next year.

  • "Dallicar House is the best accommodation that we have booked in ten years of reunions for a group of five couples that met at university in 1962 (hence the absolute requirement for multiple private bathrooms!"

    ) The owners very generously allowed us to transfer our aborted 2020 reservation until this year, which was much appreciated. The house is spacious, warm, comfortable, tastefully decorated, very well-equipped (though years of previous experience mean that I always bring a two-pin plug adaptor for my electric razor and toothbrush and this proved to be wise) and situated in beautiful surroundings. It was a little late in the year for us to avail of the bbq and the outdoor seating but the hot tub proved invaluable for easing the aches and pains of elderly ramblers. There are lots of great walks within very easy distance (there are helpful leaflets in the house) and we took the stunning railway journey from Settle to Carlisle and back ( a first for my wife, despite her being a Cumbrian). Drivers can tour neighbouring dales provided they are confident on single-track roads at times - well worth the effort. A short walk takes you to the Craven Arms where we enjoyed two splendid meals. The local Booths supermarket is excellent with very helpful and friendly staff. An ideal location for those who enjoy the outdoors, magnificent scenery and excellent accommodation.

  • "We had a wonderful time at Dallicar House getting away from our busy lives."

    The house was clean, tidy, well equipped and just the right size for our group of ten adults, with lovely big open plan kitchen, dining and living areas and plenty of parking for our four cars. It was the perfect base for exploring the Dales and to come back to in the evening for drinks and board games. The location is ideal - just off the A65 and a very short walk from the pub but far enough away from anywhere that it felt very private and quiet. A highlight for us was all the outdoor space, with barbecue, outdoor fireplace, hot tub and flame heater. Our only gripes were very minor - the corkscrew had clearly seen better days and the chlorine in the hot tub wasn't kind to some of our swimwear. Overall, a very well looked after house that we would return to without question.

It is all furnished with top quality furniture and is just total luxury. The owners were great too and very responsive via text if we had any questions. Hot tub is seen to every day of your stay - there is also a hot tap to top up the hot tub if the level has dropped which I was most impressed with! There is not only a log fire place inside AND outside but there is also a gas fire pit and gas bbq! Beds are very comfy with quality bedding! Beautiful property and would love to stay again but it’s booked up for the foreseeable (which speaks for itself!). We certainly didn’t want to leave!

The furnishings and decor are beautiful. The house is designed to be the perfect party house. Open plan but cozy with just everything you could need.The weather was atrocious but some how made the weekend even better to be so warm with the fabulous wood burner and underfloor heating. 8 of us in the hot tub in a howling gale, snow and sleet was an experience never to be missed.

The entrance to the house is amazing, it really takes advantage of the beautiful views. The house was completely spotless, we felt like we were the first ever guests at the house. Between us we had all stayed in a few of these types of houses and we all agreed this was the highest quality one we had stayed in. Every bedroom was beautifully decorated, of a good size and all they had en suites. The beds were SO comfy. We all had plenty of towels and we all had dressing gowns which was a really nice touch, especially for the hot tub. The bathrooms were well equipped with nice soaps and the showers were amazing! Always had hot water with good water pressures! The living area was all open plan with a huge smart tv. There was plenty of seating for 12 people, including a huge long table where we ate all our meals. There was also a beautiful log fire which added to the cosy cottage feel. The kitchen was really impressive it had everything we needed in order to cook meals, there was also tea and coffee which was fab. The fridge freezer was huge and had an ice machine in. There was a huge cupboard that had every type of glass you could need, beer, Prosecco, wine and gin glasses to name a few! There was also a price list for if a glass smashed how much to leave. We all felt this was a good idea and a fair way to do it. Only one Prosecco glass was smashed
