  • "Great amount of space in each room at this accommodation and it is really cosy and the building itself is really nice."

    We really enjoyed our stay here. Kitchen has some really helpful appliances (including a microwave, electric cooker). The sun deck is great with the weather being sunny. Excellent location, near Ingleborough and was just easy couple of minutes to walk to the village. Host was welcoming and kindly provided bread, tea, coffee, etc.

  • "The Magistrates Chambers , is comfortable, well laid out and has everything you would need for a pleasant break."

    It is very quiet with no evident rural noise to interrupt your sleep. We would have no hesitation in booking it again. The village of Ingleton is well served with pubs, Restaurants and a fish & chip shop. The location is great for visits to both the Dales and Lake District . Highly recommended.

  • "Good communication from the owners."

    A wonderful cottage with everything we needed for a great week. Easy to find and in a great location for the western Dales. Spotlessly clean, comfortable seating and bed and a good shower. We'd definitely rebook if we were coming back to this area.

  • "Firstly before we even arrived the communication with the owners made us feel relaxed and welcome."

    The accomodation was way above our expectations, such a stunning building inside and out.The parking space in front of the The Old Court house building was like gold dust. Inside we had everything you could need for a relaxing stay and the decor and little additions here and there made it special. Even better was the Wheatsheaf pub was only a 5 min walk away and the rest of Ingleton inluding the spectacular falls was about 10 mins walk. We managed to do the Ingleborough nature walk & Cave, Ingleton Falls, RSPB Leighton Moss and Fell end reserves. Dont forget to try the Seasons bakery just nearby in walking distance too. Would definitely stay again and have already recommended The Magistrate Chambers to friends and family. Thank you for creating such a stunning accomodation. Glenn & Caroline Hull

  • "Comfortable accommodation well equipped everything we required for our stay."

    Good quality renovation of this lovely former court house. Ideal location for walking the three peaks and traveling around this area of the Yorkshire Dales. We would recommend this property if you wish to walk a village and Ingleton Waterfalls which are a short stroll away.

  • "The house was beautifully furnished and very clean."

    The Christmas decorations and welcome hamper were lovely details. However there were a number of things we were disappointed with. We couldn’t get any hot water for a hot shower during our stay. I believe there is a technique to it but we couldn’t make it work (we were able to get hot water for the bath though). The internet was also very patchy and kept cutting out during movies. We also ran out of firewood after the first night and were told we had to restock ourselves. There was none left in the local coop and we had to do a 40 min round trip to find some more. One of these factors wouldn’t have been a big problem, but all combined, we left feeling disappointed and like we had been quite overcharged for our stay. We do not feel the price charged was appropriate for the property.

  • "Probably the best welcome pack we have ever been greeted by."

    All the rooms were perfectly set out and made for a very comfortable stay. If I could change one thing it would be to do something about the small step into the second bedroom. It was so low as to be not visible causing us to trip on it more than once. Perhaps change the carpet on the step to a contrasting colour?

  • "We had an enjoyable and comfortable stay at the Magistrates Chambers."

    A very tasteful renovation and adaptation of the original police station and courthouse. We did the Ingleton waterfall trail and would recommend that. The bread from Seasons bakery is lovely and we took some of it home with us to put in the freezer!

  • "We really enjoyed our stay in this unique property which has been nicely converted into a holiday let."

    Road noise mentioned by others wasn't actually that bad and it is something I would normally be sensitive to. Ear plugs are provided but I didn't feel the need to use them as the noise of the occasional passing vehicle after 6am wasn't that intrusive. We also had no issues with the cockerel, never heard it at all. Probably due to covid, cushions weren't provided on the sofas so this meant that they perhaps weren't as comfortable as they could have been. Also the bed in the double room was too soft for me and the mattress had some 'roll together', so that did impact on the quality of my sleep. The kitchen has limited storage and workspace, but the room overall looks lovely and is well equipped. Whilst sitting at the table for meals the view was wonderful. The heating and hot water were great, and simple enough to use. Decent water pressure in the shower, and the sinks in the two bedrooms are a thoughful addition as it meant the main bathroom use was kept to just toilet and shower visits. The place was spotlessly clean and quality linen and towels were provided. We'd love to stay again at some point as the cottage is in a great location for waking into the centre of Ingleton and driving to many nearby places of interest.

  • "Lovely house in perfect location for exploring the Dales and the Lakes."

    House very clean and darling little note and welcome gift. Only points that could really improve it would be the internet connection (we found it patchy and for wet weather days with a toddler especially it can be handy to be able to stream Disney+ or YouTube). Only other “nice to have” item would be a small dishwasher but that is because I am lazy and don’t want to do dishes when on holiday! We hope to come back and hire both “Magistrates Chambers” and “The Cells” so that parents can also come with. Thanks for a lovely and much needed break! Anyone visiting, do not neglect to go to the bakery down the road, best sourdough bread as well as many other treats both sweet and savoury.

  • "The magistrates chambers was immaculate with all the things you need for a comfortable stay."

    Decorated tastefully with lots of character and lovey views of the surrounding area. The village is just 2 minutes walk away with local shops, supermarket, cafes and pubs. Would recommend the wheatsheaf pub for food and beer garden and the curlew craft tea room for the best homemade ice cream. We did the three Yorkshire peaks which were stunning (ingleborough, pen y ghent and whernside). Clapham and Kirkby Lonsdale are nearby and worth a visit. Didn't want to leave.

    Easy walk (few minutes) to pub shop etc . Lovely welcome pack on arrival from owners. Just to warn others there was more road noise then we expected. The road is quite busy from early in the morning. However this would not stop me from booking again if I was to return to Ingleton.

  • "The cottage was tastefully decorated throughout, it was fabulous."

    We didnt think it would be that nice! Super cosy and an added bonus of it being decorated for Christmas. The beds were really comfortable, we were in bed early every night! It really Is a 3 minute walk down the road to the centre of the town to pick up supplies or have a drink. We found the Old Post Office was our favourite and then the Masons on the road near the coop petrol station was super friendly and a great selection of yummy food. We did the Ingleton waterfalls which I would recommend if you are able to walk over rugged terrain. Only very minor draw back was there weren't enough cleaning products / facilities supplied. As we were staying for a week with a 2 year old it really would have helped having a washing machine and I also would have liked to have been able to clean around the fireplace better as it was a battle trying to keep the bits off the wood, ash etc. contained. Other than that we would stay again and would definitely recommend for people to stay there. Excited to see how the upstairs will turn out once they have finished renovating!
