  • “This holiday cottage has everything ...”
    This holiday cottage has everything and then some more. The owners have gone to a lot of effort and expense to ensure their guests feel welcome and feel at home. You are made to feel like you are sharing their home - you are not made to feel that you are just a holiday tenant.

    This holiday cottage has everything and then some more. The owners have gone to a lot of effort and expense to ensure their guests feel welcome and feel at home. You are made to feel like you are sharing their home - you are not made to feel that you are just a holiday tenant. Martyn was very helpful when I first called to discuss key arrangements and he made it clear that if we needed anything during our stay we only had to call. The cottage itself is to a very high standard and there are so many little touches that will make any stay a real pleasure. I would also comment that the property was very clean throughout. The bed was very comfortable and allowed a good night sleep. As walkers with a dog the location was just perfect. A week is normally enough for us to explore the local area but our week stay was not long enough. We walked for 36 miles during our stay and we have not even started to know the area. We were quite sad to leave. The cottage is in a great location but not too remote and you felt part of the village. The cottage was always a great place to come back to after a long walk. The lounge is just so comfortable and the kitchen and dining area is well equipped. As we have a dog we cooked every day and it was just perfect. The best shop we found for a fairly big shop is Booths in Settle. There are 2 pubs in the village if you do not want to cook and the nearest one to the cottage always looked busy. We stayed in the really hot spell during June but the cottage remained very cool. The interior design of the cottage has to be commended and overall I would also add that this cottage is excellent value for money. The garden area is very dog friendly – our 11 year old Beagle had a great time at the cottage and the walks – she coped better in the heat than we did! Thank you Martyn and Louisa for a great week - we will be back, and will recommend to friends and family.

The property

A first class, stone built, detached cottage in a most enviable location on the edge of the Dales village of Horton-in-Ribblesdale with fabulous views of Pen-y-Ghent.

Located on the Pennine Way footpath this outstanding holiday home provides a great opportunity for family and friends to get away from it all and enjoy having one of the famous Three Peaks on the doorstep.

Smart and stylish throughout, the owners have gone to great lengths to provide guests with a memorable holiday home.

Featuring a spacious sitting room with a cosy woodburning stove, a stylish wooden floor, lovely views of the surrounding countryside and modern features such as the 40” Smart TV.

Next to the sitting room there is a delightful summer room with a dining and seating area, Velux windows and patio doors overlooking open countryside.

The dining room also provides a small seating area to sit, relax and enjoy an evening tipple.

The second floor consists of a spacious master bedroom with a king-size bed and modern en-suite facilities.

The second double has a luxurious super king-size bed (zip/link, can be a twin on request) and the third bedroom is a useful single room.

The main bathroom, smart and stylish, consists of a shower cubicle and a separate warming bath, ideal after a day out on the fells.

Outside there is a mature front garden area, ideal to sit out and enjoy the sights and sounds of the surrounding countryside.

The lane running past the front of the house leads onto the main footpath to Pen-y-Ghent and for those relishing a challenge there is the famous Three Peaks Challenge, not for the faint hearted.

For those less inclined towards the great outdoors, there are many sightseeing activities in the area - visit the Hoffman Kiln at Langcliffe, the famous Viaduct on the Settle-Carlisle railway recently used as the setting for the BBC series Jericho.

The market towns of Settle and Skipton are close at hand and Kirkby Lonsdale and Hawes are well worth a visit and then finish the day with a short stroll to the heart of the village - the local pub.

This is a stunning property in a fantastic, picturesque setting with something to suit everyone.

About the location

HORTON-IN-RIBBLESDALE

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.
