  • “Very good stay”

    A quiet retreat in a good place to make as many walks as you want to. A nice garden, to sit, sip tea, read a bood, enjoy the views. Morning sun ... always great when the others are still asleep. Spaceful bedrooms, spaceful living room, and spacious kitchen. Tumble dryer in barn (which is handy when it's raining and you still want to dry your clothes quickly). Second fridge, but first one is good enough. Woodburner, Comfortable house, felt 'good'. It's old/traditional. One can walk into Horton in Ribblesdale easily (café, pub, hotel). Starter pack with tea, coffee, oil, herbs/spices. Good selection of pots and pans. Good working oven/cooker. What could be better? Well, when there are six people staying it's a bit of a puzzle to work with onely one bathroom (toilet and shower over bath in one space). Gras was a bit high and hidden was dog/cat poo :( Please - an anti-slip in the bath, just a tip ... And there's no internet/wifi. OTOH - it does quiet your vacation :) And easy acces to Internet via either Settle or Hawes library (free) Good trips to be made to top of Three Peaks, Lancaster, Hawes, Skipton, Settle (check Tripadvisor for more tips).

The property

Horton-in-Ribblesdale 0.5 miles.

A stone-built detached period cottage, bordering a farm lane, within the lovely hamlet of Newhouses, leading to the Pennine Way.

This charming property exudes old world charm, with many original features including beamed ceilings, flagged floors and original slate shelves in the kitchen.

There is a multi-fuel stove in the sitting room, ensuring a warm welcome at any time of the year and coal is provided in the small barn to the left of the cottage.

At the rear and sides of the cottage is an attractive garden with an excellent view of one of the Three Peaks, Pen-y-Ghent.

The farm lane, which runs past the front door of the cottage, leading to the Pennine Way is mostly used as a path for walkers and the whole area is a paradise for walkers and mountain bikers, with many footpaths and bridleways throughout the surrounding Dales countryside.

A wonderful base for an ideal Dales holiday.

About the location

HORTON-IN-RIBBLESDALE

Settle 6 miles; Ingleton 10 miles.

This beautiful Ribblesdale village sits within the National Park and provides home to lots of pretty traditional Dales buildings, a lovely Norman church and two pubs. The surrounding countryside is magnificent, offering the ideal location for fell walking, with the famous Three Peaks Walk, Pen-Y-Ghent, Whernside and Ingleborough offering some of the most challenging walks in the country. The famous Settle-Carlisle Railway passes through the village and passes some of the most beautiful and inspiring upland scenery in the country. The Ribblehead viaduct, completed in 1870 is a magnificent structure and the sight of a steam train passing across the top is one not to be missed. The nearby market town of Settle offers a wide variety of pubs and restaurants whilst the market square is a real delight featuring the Shambles, an historic 3-storey building with shops on two levels and houses above, and the Town Hall. The Victoria Hall is a cinema at weekends (Fri & Sat) and offers other activities such as folk nights throughout the year. Natural attractions such as Malham Cove and Gordale Scar are within easy reach, as are the nearby Dales towns of Skipton and Malham and the delightful villages of Ingleton and Hawes.
