    “Fabulous house, the photos don't ...”
    Fabulous house, the photos don't really do it justice. We absolutely loved it here and the owners were very friendly and helpful too. The only one big letdown was that there is only one shower in the whole house (and it's in one of the en-suite bathrooms). This was a bit of a problem for us, especially as there were older people staying who were unable to get washed without a shower. Apart from that though, really great and brill location. :)

The property

Settle 3 miles.

An imposing, 19th century, Grade II listed stone-built farmhouse, attached to the owner’s home and set in three acres of private grounds on a hillside, just three miles from Settle in the Yorkshire Dales National Park.

From the magnificent country surroundings, to the superb long distance views, this lovely cottage is perfect for a group of friends or large family to get away from it all and enjoy the peace and tranquillity of this beautiful area.

Offering country living at its finest, this welcoming cottage offers spacious and comfortable holiday accommodation, full of character with high ceilings and stone and tiled floors throughout.

Set over three floors, the five spacious bedrooms are split over the first and second floors, two of which have en-suites and enjoy glorious views of the surrounding countryside.

This comfortable cottage also has a well-equipped kitchen with dining area, a spacious sitting room with a large open fire, and a fabulous games room with a full-size pool table.

Completing the accommodation is a small office on the first floor, a bathroom, and a cloakroom, ensuring that this cottage has everything that you need for a relaxing break in the ever popular Yorkshire Dales.

Outside is a large grassed area to the front and a delightful ‘secret garden’ accessed through French doors.

Within the grounds of the house are a working farming producing rare breed pork, a specialist cheese refiner and purveyor and a good fine wine shop.

From this lovely cottage, are walks to Settle and Long Preston, where you can take a stroll along the riverside, sample a number of traditional pubs serving fine ales and good food and, of course, find access to the famous Settle-Carlisle railway line.

The Dales countryside offers wonderful walks and cycle routes, with the famous three peaks of Ingleborough, Whernside and Pen-y-ghent just a stone's throw away.

Skipton and the Lake District are both just half an hour's drive away, with the Dales and the Lakes both within easy touring distance.

This lovely cottage makes a superb holiday destination at any time of the year.

About the location


Malham 6 miles; Skipton 17 miles; Kendal 25 miles.

The bustling market town of Settle lies at the south west rim of the Yorkshire Dales National Park, nestled beside the largest outcrop of limestone in Britain - a region of scars, cliffs, caves and potholes - amongst some of the most picturesque scenery in North Yorkshire. Tuesday is market day in Settle, when the square is filled with stalls offering a wide variety of crafts and goods. The market place is surrounded by local businesses, the centre being dominated by The Shambles, an historic three storey building with shops on two levels and houses above, and the Town Hall. There is a good selection of restaurants and pubs and a public swimming pool. The Victoria Hall has entertainment and other activities such as folk nights throughout the year. The famous Settle-Carlisle Railway crosses some of the most beautiful and inspiring upland scenery in the country. Natural attractions such as Malham Cove and Gordale Scar are within easy reach, as are the nearby Dales towns of Skipton and Malham. Settle is in the midst of excellent walking country and is a good base for touring the Dales, the Lake District and the Forest of Bowland.
