    “Over 300 miles to get here and we still keep coming back”

    My wife and I have returned once again to Knights Cottage, the pull to this part of Yorkshire is still ongoing. Having traveled over 300 miles to get here, we still think its very much worth every mile. The cottage itself is still as comfortable as our first visit several years ago and whilst the listing is accurate I’ll list a few of the plus’s for us. The cottage sleeps five people comfortably with super king-size beds in two of the bedrooms. The kitchen has all we need to make our stay enjoyable with dishwasher and washer dryer too with the usual microwave and fridge freezer. The lounge diner has reclining sofas, digital TV (Free-view), DVD player, radio books and maps and a dining table to seat six, together with the WiFi we stay in contact with the outside world when necessary. The wood burning stove is a nice plus for those winter nights. The bathroom is a good size with a shower over bath. The cottage has enclosed front and paved back yards with outside furniture and BBQ too. Once outside you have easy access to walks to the river, up onto the hills. Settle is about two miles down the road and has weekly markets, co-op and other interesting local shops. Booths is the local supermarket for more choice if required. The local pub serves good beer and tasty food, but if you want take away food Settle provides a varied choice including Chinese, Indian, Pizza and fish and chips. But please don’t forget the Knights Table at the local camp site. Even if you don’t stay at Knights Cottage its open to all. Top tips: The Police like to set up speed camera vans between Settle and Langcliffe and just outside the village toward Horton-in-Ribblesdale.

The property

A delightful stone-built mid-terrace cottage, situated near the beautiful river on the outskirts of the peaceful village of Stainforth, 3 miles from Settle.

This is a charming Stainforth cottage, fully refurbished and styled to provide a good quality holiday home in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales.

This Stainforth cottage features a sitting room with warm and cosy woodburning stove, a well-equipped adjoining kitchen, three delightful bedrooms, two with flexible accommodation, a pretty enclosed front garden and a patio area to the rear of the cottage.

Various walks can be enjoyed from the doorstep of this Stainforth cottage, onthe Pennine Way and in the Yorkshire Dales National Park, while the more energetic visitor can 'clock in' at Horton-in-Ribblesdale's Pen-y-Ghent cafe and take on the challenge of the Three Peaks walk!

For those less inclined towards the great outdoors, there are many sightseeing activities in the area around this cottage in Stainforth - visit the Hoffman Kiln at Langcliffe, the Falconry Centre and the market towns of Settle and Skipton.

And what better way to end the day than the short walk to the heart of the village - the local pub?

A great Stainforth cottage and location whatever the time of year.

About the location


Settle 2.5 miles; Giggleswick 2.5 miles.

Stainforth is a charming village with a thriving community life in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales National Park. Stone-built traditional cottages, narrow lanes, the village church and the quaint old pub all go together to make this one of the prettiest villages in the shire of Ribblesdale. Nearby are the famous Stainforth Foss and the medieval Packhorse Bridge, beloved by Sir Edward Elgar. The village is about three miles from Settle, a bustling market town with excellent shopping facilities, a good selection of restaurants and a thriving market day, when the square is filled with stalls offering a wide range of goods. The Settle-Carlisle Railway, the most scenic in England features the occasional steam train, and the run across the Ribblehead viaduct with its twenty-four arches is an experience not to be missed. An excellent area for walkers with the Three Peaks nearby, and a good base for touring the Dales, while the Lake District can be reached in less than an hour.
