  • "Although the place did sleep 2 it was very cramped, with no where comfortable to sit within the cottage"

    The annex is advertised as not a large space but does contain a sofa and two wicker arm chairs. Property Owner

  • "Property is in a great location in a quiet village."

    One aspect which was not advertised however was the garden area - truly a beautiful and welcomed surprise. The host was great. The bad side is the internet, although depending on your age it might not be an issue, but it is definitely hit and miss with connectivity issues throughout the day. I would come back here, but likely never will as I tend to holiday at new places every year. It really was a nice stay though.

  • "Had a lovely few days here."

    It’s as described and perfect for a couple. Everything we needed. Perfect location. right on the route for Yorkshire three peaks. The owner recommended some lovely walks which we wouldn’t have found otherwise. The lambs looking through our bedroom window every evening was one of our highlights. Only warning... watch your exhaust as you come through the gate. Lovely stay. Already planning to return next year.

  • "The small accomodation was very clean and well stocked."

    The large bed was very comfortable and warm,...soft and warm dawn quilt and pillows, nicely heated. Kitchen was well stocked, and most of all, the owner next door, extremly friendly, helpful and knowledgeable who were always available with advise if needed but left me alone to enjoy otherwise. One extremly attractive feature, the accomodation is located almost on the beginning of one of the Penyghent climb paths and less than 5 min walk from the well known meeting points of Horton in Ribblesdale, that is the National Car park and Penyghent Cafe(closed at the moment). With the owners beautifull Bantam hens and sometimes next door farmers sheep roaming around, it felt like I was living on a farm.

  • "The owner was very welcoming and it was a good base to explore the Dales."

    The accommodation had everything we needed, a very comfortable bed, shower room with complimentary toiletries. A small dining kitchen, well equipped, the slight drawback was the only comfortable seating along with the TV was in the bedroom. There were two pubs within easy walking distance both serving food.

  • "This is a beautiful little gem of a property."

    It's perfectly located with easy access into hills. The only noise locally is the sheep and the song birds. The hosts are delightful and welcoming. And on a particularly warm day they ensured extra fan's were available so we could keep cool, a small touch that was greatly appreciated. The kitchen is well stocked with cooling utensils and the bottle of bubbly waiting in the fridge was appreciated. We enjoyed our stay and would readily recommend this home for other guests looking for a relaxed few days away with a gorgeous view. A great escape!

  • "The cottage was clean, comfortable and well equipped with a lovely garden which you can use."

    The host was very welcoming and very knowledgeable about the area. The cottage is in a lovely location with walking straight from the door onto the pennine way plus many other enjoyable walks from the village. The station in the village allows you to travel the picturesque Settle to Carlisle line (well worth the trip) we had a great holiday. Two pubs in the village but the nearest shops are 6 miles away. The only negative for us was turning into the drive from the narrow lane, the drive is higher than the lane(more than 12 inches) and so scraped the underside of our car getting onto it and again when we drove off it. Fortunately we didn't use the car whilst there and so this only happened twice but if you needed to keep going in and out it could be more of a problem. I would add our car is an estate type so it may not be as bad for shorter wheel based cars but would be if your car is low profile.

  • "This was a wonderful place to stay."

    It is perfectly placed for walking and we travelled there by train which we really recommend. We loved Settle (the nearest town) which is one train stop and also a short taxi ride away - recommend the great Victoria Hall (world's oldest running music hall). The accommodation is well described and the kitchen has great facilities. Lovely views and warm and comfortable. We enjoyed meeting the owners and seeing some of his parents art from when this was their home.

  • "Cottage is in a great place for exploring the dales."

    It was very clean & warm.A really peaceful & relazing area with great views. A welcome pack of essentials would have been appreciated as the shop is 6 miles away. (Toilet rolls & washing up liquid perhaps.) General area around the cottage could do with some tidying up especially as there are no lights in the area. More hooks would be good especially on back of bathroom door.

  • "This annex is in a beautiful private position 100 yrs up a track out of the village."

    You can walk the three Yorkshire peaks from the door. Choice of two pubs,we liked both. Only one thing I missed was a hook on the pole to open the velux window above the bed because the weather was so good and I like a window open at night. Settle is an excellent town to visit and Malham village nearby also a must. Walks of all distances in beautiful country. Loved this idyllic annex,perfect.

About the location


Settle 6 miles; Ingleton 10 miles.

This beautiful Ribblesdale village sits within the National Park and provides home to lots of pretty traditional Dales buildings, a lovely Norman church and two pubs. The surrounding countryside is magnificent, offering the ideal location for fell walking, with the famous Three Peaks Walk, Pen-Y-Ghent, Whernside and Ingleborough offering some of the most challenging walks in the country. The famous Settle-Carlisle Railway passes through the village and passes some of the most beautiful and inspiring upland scenery in the country. The Ribblehead viaduct, completed in 1870 is a magnificent structure and the sight of a steam train passing across the top is one not to be missed. The nearby market town of Settle offers a wide variety of pubs and restaurants whilst the market square is a real delight featuring the Shambles, an historic 3-storey building with shops on two levels and houses above, and the Town Hall. The Victoria Hall is a cinema at weekends (Fri & Sat) and offers other activities such as folk nights throughout the year. Natural attractions such as Malham Cove and Gordale Scar are within easy reach, as are the nearby Dales towns of Skipton and Malham and the delightful villages of Ingleton and Hawes.
