  • "Poppy cottage is a beautiful home."

    Plenty of space for us and lovely and warm too. It is a perfect base for some stunning walks in the Yorkshire dales. I would definitely return here again.

    The weather wasn't the best all the time but the cottage was warm and cosy to come back to. Clothes dried and ready for the next day. Good food and good beer at the Golden Lion pub too.

  • "Poppy cottage is a wonderful cosy home from home cottage."

    There is everything you need, It was clean and the beds were very comfortable, Other peoples feedback regarding the fridge freezer were unfounded as we as five adults managed really well, The golden lion pub is ideal for refreshing pint and a meal. The station is a 3 minute walk away perfect for travelling either way with reliable trains. The views of pennygent are amazing along with brilliant riverside walks and walks to Ribblehead viaduct is not out of the way. The only thing we found strange was the lack of a welcome pack as every cottage we have stayed at have provided a little something also intermittent internet when needed at times, but this is obviously due to the location and weather conditions. Overall a very lovely cottage with a very enjoyable stay. Thank you.

    Comfy clean spacious and well equipped. 3 large rooms. No outside space but we did not need this. Plenty of good places to eat in Settle and Ingleton.

  • "This is a lovely cosy cottage which is brilliantly situated for some of the best walking in the Dales."

    The cottage is good value and very well equipped. It is also lovely and warm, it snowed the week we were there. The owners live nearby and are helpful but not intrusive. The village has two pubs but doesn’t have a shop anymore. However, you can always drive or hop on the train to Settle for shopping. The train line is also helpful for getting to places like Ribblehead and Dent for even more walks. Finally, one of the bedrooms has a lovely view of Pen Y Ghent. I’d really recommend this cottage.

  • "Lovely cottage ."

    Could do with an outdoor sitting area and also washing line . The fridge was also a tad small for 4 adults and would have struggled with 6 people . All other facilities were very good with the owner on hand if needed . Pubs in village okay for eating but cafe now shut . Easy start to Pen- y -Gent for 3 peaks . Nearby town of Settle with shops and eateries . Great Italian .

  • "The cottage although cosy, was lacking in some areas."

    One of the showers failed to work and the other was very temperamental. The third bedroom consisted of 2 beds, one being a frame on wheels and the other a very slim camp style bed. My adult son had uncomfortable night sleeps in the bed on wheels, which moved every time he did. He would not have fitted into the other bed. We also found old peanuts on the carpet. The cottage is in a lovely location, a short distance from the pub and within a short drive to lots of lovely walks. I feel that it would accommodate 4 adults rather than the 6 stated, due to the bed situation and the downstairs room space. It lacked a bit of TLC.

    The house is on a family farm and they were friendly on arrival and had left some useful information about the cottage inside the house. All as expected. Slight issue with one of the showers and we couldn't get the internet to work but we reported it to them and I'm sure it will be fixed for the next arrivals. We didn't need it anyway as we were out walking both days! Stayed here with a couple of friends and we would definitely stay here again.

    It has to be shared with the owner and connection cannot be relied upon if you need to do anything important or check out locations of interest in the area or train times etc. before setting off for a day out. Having said that the cottage is located in a very peaceful area with the station two minutes walk away - absolutely ideal for travelling on the Settle to Carlisle railway line (an absolute must) and the owners are lovely people to chat to - we would certainly return.

  • "The process of booking was easy from start to finish."

    As for the cottage well it was everything we hoped for and more. We wanted a more traditional feel cottage and that’s what we got. It was lovely and cosy yet spacious for a family of 5. It was very well equipped, nice comfy beds and plenty of towels provided. A nice warm fire was lit ready for arrival which was a welcome sight. The owners were lovely, friendly and very welcoming. It was a great base for my husband and daughter to walk Pen-y-Ghent, and for us to visit other places of interest. I wish we had booked for longer. A hidden gem and we hope to return.

    There is not much view from the house but once you step outside you can stroll down to the Ribble and see Pen-Y-Ghent. Once we had got to grips with the coal fire we were lovely and warm though there are electric fan heaters if you aren't used to a fire. Easy walking from the cottage, up Pen-Y-Ghent one way or Ingleborough Nature Reserve the other, or all 3 peaks if you are feeling more ennergetic than us. Very friendly helpful owners who live next door if you have any problems.

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.
