  • "Had a lovely stay, really cosy cottage in a great location."

  • "It says a lot that this is our fourth stay at the wonderful Waterfall Cottage in two years."

    The cottage is as fantastic as ever. On arrival it was as spotless and comfortable as ever. We loved the new front door! You get to the cottage via a footpath right by the River Doe so the sound of the water flowing along is so relaxing! Ingleton is a lovely village with all the amenities you need. There are loads to do in the area such as the Waterfall walk and an outdoor swimming pool! If you have an EV there are 6 Podpoint chargers at the library car park Overall I totally recommend Waterfall Cottage. You won't regret booking it!

  • "Wow, I had an absolutely amazing stay at the cottage!"

    The location the facilities the cleanliness were perfect. I would highly recommend booking waterfall cottage. My parents have just booked to stay there on my recommendation. The only one thing that could have made the stay better was the really uncomfortable tiny sofa. After a day out walking it was so hard to lay down and relax. And I know this sounds petty but true

    Thank you so much for your lovely comments. Property Owner

  • "Lovely little cottage tucked away beside the river."

    Property is well equipped and clean,comfortable & cosy. No outdoor space but you could take your coffee & sit by the river ( weather permitting ). Perfect place to relax & unwind. Pubs, cafe & Coop store within 5 mins walk and a small Italian restaurant LaTraviatta is worth a visit but recommend booking in advance. Ingleton Waterfall Trail is a 10 min walk away and White Scar Caves a 10 min drive. Really enjoyed our stay at Waterfall Cottage and would definitely go back.

    Chiefly that the bed no longer squeaks and now the checkout is a much more acceptable 10am. Same things apply, idyllic location with the Rive Doe 20ft away from you. Ingleton is a wonderful little village. For EV owners like me there is Podpoint public chargers at the main car park. Overall totally recommend... And will be back... Again!

  • "The internal door between living room and kitchen does not close on a latch to stay shut."

    All of the internal doors, for fire safety reasons, need to close and remain closed in the event of a fire. The stairs requires a grabrail of sorts at the top as there is nothing to hold to steady the ascent. The steps (3) to the front door requires a handrail as they are steep were slippy. Cosy, well equipped cottage but not for those with walking issues.

    Dog owners can stroll down the safe footpath passing the front door along the river for a lovely 10 minutes off lead. One minute's walk into the centre of Ingleton for the well-stocked Co-Op, Inglesports, friendly pubs or a hike up Ingleborough. The cottage is lovely. I'll definitely stay again.

I am 83 yrs old and find the stairs very hard. and dangerous? there should be a full handrail on the left hand side going up instead of the chair RAIL WHICH CANNOT BE GRIPPED. it is an accident waiting to happen. was also unhappy about the dog urine stains all over the carpet. i see in the kitchen cupboard a can of remover. not effective.. i could see all the stains and smell it.

    Three girls escaping our busy works schedule, we just wanted somewhere comfortable relaxing and cosy and waterfall cottage did the job.

  • "Cottage is in a lovely spot, tucked away opposite the river yet only 5 minutes walk from all the amenities."

    Parking space is very close too. It seemed very dark inside when we got there but we soon got used to that! It's got everything you need. We thought we might miss the outside space with having our dog but we just walked him along the very quiet lane. Outside pool is 5 minutes walk away. Would point out that directions provided were confusing. We were directed to turn left at a tea shop which is not there!

    Thank you for bringing this to our attention. The premises have very recently changed to a restaurant and we will correct this on the directions. Property Owner

  • "Lovely cottage in an idyllic location in a row of identical properties overlooking the River Doe."

    It was thoroughly clean on arrival and everything was provided to make our stay as comfortable as possible. Only criticisms are that the bed in the main bedroom was uncomfortable at first and a bit noisy to climb into and that I'd preferred to have had a full size ironing board rather than a table top one. But these didn't detract from the enjoyment of our stay and would go back in a heartbeat.

  • "We loved Waterfall Cottage."

    Part of its charm is that it's right by the river and away from the road, so apart from the sound of rushing water it's very quiet at night. You have to park on the road about 100m away but this wasn't a problem. Ingleton is lovely and has everything you need. The cottage is very cosy and didn't disappoint.

    In the heart of Ingleton, so very easy to walk to shops and to the Falls and beyond. Very well presented. We visited in February and it was lovely and warm. People pass by as the path the cottage is on is a very pretty route alongside the riverbank. One therefore feels very much part of the the place. Parking is very nearby, no problem at all. Would definetely recommend this cottage and hope to be back.

The property

Overlooking the River Doe, within the quaint village of Ingleton, is this characterful mid-terrace dwelling, Waterfall Cottage.

This wonderful hideaway rests on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales National Park, offering a superb base for a family seeking an action-packed break or simply a break away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

After admiring the river views, kick off your boots and be welcomed into the sitting room, offering a real home from home ambience.

The gas central heating gently fills the room with warmth during the winter evenings as you curl up on the sofa and tune into the Smart TV.

Continuing to impress is the well-equipped kitchen, where you will find everything you could possibly need to cater for your own delicious evening meals before gathering at the dining table to plan the days ahead.

As the evening draws to a close, venture up the staircase to retire to either the double bedroom or the single bedroom, both boasting quality linens and ample space to house your personal belongings.

A short walk into the village will bring you to a selection of pubs and eateries if you fancy a special treat one evening, as well as a year-round climbing wall and a seasonal heated outdoor swimming pool to keep you busy one afternoon.

On the doorstep is the four mile walk around Ingleton Waterfalls and and then further afield is the superb White Scar Cave.

For those feeling active, find the famous Yorkshire Three Peaks within close reach, where you can look forward to soaking up the scenery as you hike up the mountains of Whernside, Ingleborough and Pen-y-ghent.

There is a small lockable out-building for bike storage if you wish you bring your bike with you.

Waterfall Cottage is a wonderful retreat for a family break to this part of the countryside.
