  • "We loved Valley View!"

    It was clean and warm when we arrived, the whole place is well furnished and so well equipped. There were 4 adults and 4 children, plenty of space for us all. It’s also really close to the village playground, you can see it from the house which was ideal. A really good location too for walks from the doorstep and exploring more of the Dales. I would definitely recommend this cottage and hope to return.

    Thanks for the great feedback. We're delighted you enjoyed your stay and look forward to welcoming you back in the future. Helena and David Property Owner

  • "A fantastic house in an idyllic setting - with Yorkshire Dale walks on doorstep and pubs within walking distance!"

    We had a great few days celebrating New Year and all 6 of us (4 adults, 2 older kids) loved the space - comfortable, well equipped and open fires welcome addition for the cold and damp evenings. We would definitely recommend.

    Many thanks for the lovely feedback. We’re glad you enjoyed the New Year celebrations! Helena and David Property Owner

  • "We loved this property."

    The sound of the stream could be heard in the kitchen and 2 of the bedrooms which was really special. Everything was really comfy from the sofa to the mattresses. Location was also gorgeous. 5 stars.

    Thank you for the lovely comments. We're really glad you enjoyed the house (and stream)! David and Helena. Property Owner

  • "A very comfortable and well equipped cottage in an idyllic setting, backing onto the river and with great views of the countryside."

    Plenty of room for 7 adults. Kettlewell has 3 pubs serving good food and local beers. Would highly recommend the King's Head.

  • "Perfectly positioned house within Kettlewell village with great views from every window."

    Really enjoyed the outside seating area. The owner provided everything you need for a relaxing stay. We also enjoyed the scarecrow festival which was an unexpected event and added to the holiday. We will definitely be returning as so much more to explore locally.

    Thanks for your lovely comments - we're glad you were to enjoy the scarecrow festival! David and Helena Property Owner

  • "An absolutely fantastic property."

    We only stayed for four nights and our only complaint is that we couldn't stay longer. Everything about the cottage was perfect - the facilities, the comfy beds/pillows, the outdoor decking, the lovely kitchen and of course the welcoming bottle of wine! We just loved it!

    Thank you for your feedback - that's really kind. Glad you enjoyed the house! David and Helena. Property Owner

  • "Gorgeous house in beautiful Kettlewell."

    We’ve stayed in Kettlewell many times over the past 20 years and Valley View is certainly one of nicest properties. We were amongst the first few rentals of this property and as you would expect there were one or two niggles. Nothing major, no mirror in attic bedroom to allow hair drying etc., easy to bump head on the low sloping ceiling in attic room when getting out of bed in the dark. The property has many pleasing aspects, great sound of the beck which runs at back of the property, real house plants, an extra fridge in kitchen, downstairs toilet in utility room and extremely comfortable mattresses to name but a few. Overall a fabulous property, we would love to stay there again in the future.

    Thanks for your lovely feedback - we're glad you enjoyed your stay. You'll be pleased to hear that we've now got a mirror in the top bedroom for the next time you come! David and Helena. Property Owner

A beautiful, semi-detached townhouse overlooking the village of Kettlewell and valley beyond, Valley View is a simply delightful base for a family or group of friends looking to explore North Yorkshire and the Yorkshire Dales.

Be welcomed by the pretty painted exterior of this wonderful house, taking in the stunning valley backdrop and the quaint houses of the town, and park on-road beside the property to unpack with ease.

A light and airy kitchen boasts contemporary amenities, a woodburning stove and a large dining table so guests can both cook and enjoy a hearty meal as a group.

The kitchen also sports lovely patio doors, allowing for views of the stream and its wooded banks behind the property, and guests can make the most of this tranquil location by spending an evening on the balcony with a tipple, as the beck rushes by, an idyllic setting for an alfresco breakfast.

The sitting room boasts a large sofa for guests to settle into with a cup of tea, accompanied by the homely glow of the woodburning stove.

When the evening wears on, head up to the first floor, where there is a king-size room with an en-suite, a twin, both with valley views, a bunk ideal for children, along with a shower room for your refreshment, and on the second floor, mezzanine there is a king-size room with a delightful bathroom ideal for a soak amongst the bubbles.

Kettlewell is a beautiful rural village settled in Wharfedale, North Yorkshire, offering a selection of three pubs all serving excellent food, for example the Blue Bell Inn and the King’s Head, a convenience store, two cafes, a summer ice cream parlour, and of course lovely views of the countryside.

Some of the most spectacular walks in the Yorkshire Dales can be accessed directly from the doorstep of Valley View such as the popular Dales Way and the spectacular summit of Great Whernside.

The village is within easy reach of a host of delightful attractions, including the world-famous rock formations of Malham Cove, the magical Stump Cross Caverns and the awe-inspiring ruins of Bolton Abbey.

Kilnsey Park, Skipton Castle and Parcevall Hall Gardens are nearby, and you can learn more about the local history and heritage at the Dales Countryside Museum.

As well as access to the Yorkshire Dales, the property is within reach of several lovely villages, including Leyburn and Settle, and both the Forest of Bowland Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and Nidderdale AONB.

The charming cobbled market town of Grassington, used as the location of Darrowby in the Channel 5 series All Creatures Great and Small, is on your doorstep. All of this and so much more with a stay at the stylish Valley View.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £450.

About the location


Grassington 7 miles; Skipton 14 miles.

Nestling at the foot of Great Whernside, near the head of Upper Wharfedale, this idyllic village makes the perfect place from which to explore the wonderful scenery and pretty villages of this magnificent Dale. Much of Upper Wharfedale is National Trust owned - an indication of the beauty of its classic countryside, with dry-stone walls and barns, important flower-rich hay meadows and valley side woodland. Undoubtedly, this is one of the best walking and mountain biking areas in the Dales, with The Dales Way passing nearby. The village itself lying on the banks of the River Wharfe is a real delight with traditional built stone cottages, three pubs, a Post Office, speciality shops and a hotel. No surprise that the hit movie Calendar Girls was filmed here and in other locations throughout the area. An excellent base for enjoying the famous Dales, historic market towns, caves and waterfalls of this magical area.

Note: Set over three floors, not suitable for those with mobility issues.
