  • "We had a lovely stay at Fawber cottage."

    It's set in a lovely hamlet with beautiful surroundings and views of Pen-y-ghent from the back garden. It's a really nice place to sit out and stargaze after dark. The nearest pub is about 10 minutes walk down the lane and it is also warm and inviting with good food and beer. We completed the Yorkshire 3 peaks walk and it was great to have a quick soak in the bath and relax in front of the fire afterwards. As others have stated, the furnishings aren't top spec, but they are in keeping with the price to rent the cottage and we had everything we needed to prepare meals and be relaxed and comfortable. I would certainly recommend this cottage as a great base to explore this beautiful area.

    The addition of Wi Fi was wonderful to the younger members of my group. The only thing missing was a cheese grater but the speed peeler made a substitute.

    Authentic country feel, many personal touches. Perfect location for a quiet restful holiday. Excellent footpaths from the doorstep for easy or more demanding walks .

  • "Although the property was quite spacious and the beds were clean and comfortable, the whole property was full of cobwebs and spiders and hadn't been cleaned as much as we would have expected."

    Also there were several areas of black mould. We felt that the whole property could have done with a bit more TLC while still keeping its old farmhouse feel. So saying, we enjoyed our week in the area and a chance to have some family time together. The walks were very good.

  • "The cottage is delightful overall and it was a real pleasure to stay there."

    We really appreciated the look of the place and the lovely prints on all the rooms. The beds were very comfortable with good quality quilt and linen. The living room is very homely and well appointed with a good selection of books. We had not expected WiFi and it was a pleasant surprise that this has now been provided.The kitchen and dining room are well equipped and catering for 6 people is very easy. We particularly appreciated the cooker which was of a high standard. The Garden is a real bonus which enhanced our holiday. A Lovely place to sit and it’s a very easy walk down to the village. For a walking holiday it’s a good location with lots of opportunities for local walks as well as access to the three peaks and the Settle to Carlisle railway line. The only downside to the house is the single bathroom which is an area that could be improved. Our group had a great holiday here and we would love to return.

  • "Amazing location so quiet and walks from the front door out to the stunning landscape around - Malham cove, the 3 peaks and ribblehead are walkable if you like a long walk or follow the river to settle for an easy walk with plenty of places to eat on route."

    Settle Hawes Dent and Kirkby Lonsdale make a nice ride out and for the adventurous plenty of caves to visit. The cottage is fascinating as so many original features and lovely and warm with electric heaters plus a coal stove and plenty of coal provided .Beds comfortable. It's a basic cottage though and if mine I'd keep the place better maintained - there are plenty of cobwebs and occupants ( more than you would expect in the country including in the wardrobes), the walls could do with a lick of paint and the gardens grass is overgrown and the sofa is so uncomfortable as to make it unusable by one of our party. They have kindly installed WiFi and it is very good. The big draw back is the ridiculous early time you have to leave and can't arrive before 6 - there is certainly not 9 hours of cleaning carried out !

  • "The cottage is a perfect slice of nostalgic Dale's life."

    The cottage is situated in the most lovely Hamlette and is surrounded by lovely countryside, Lambs and sheep (the weekend we were there). The cottage was just what we were looking for, it was super quiet, Warm and cosy to the max. the Log burner is super easy to use and is perfect for cold nights. We also used the Garden a lot and made use of the BBQ. it's a little basic charcoal one but worked well. beds were comfortable and the shower was sufficient for what was needed. my only small areas of gripes would be that the check-in time is stupid. ^pm is just too late when your paying for a whole day. it should be more like 2 pm. the check out time of 9 am is also a little annoying but not as bad as we had lots to do that day so that didn't annoy as much. We will be booking again as it's our idea of a lovely cottage, not overdone or too Live, love, Laugh which seems to be a lot of the cottages now in Yorkshire. Rob x

    It was warm and cosy and had everything we needed, the setting is beautiful and peaceful and private. The views from the garden are stunning and after our daily hikes we spent a lot of time sitting staring at the hills and pen-y-ghent. There are lots of amazing walks very close by, and the Pennine Way is only 10 minutes walk from the cottage. Settle is 10 minutes drive and had everything we needed. The owners had left plenty of information about local things to do. We have already decided we will definitely be returning, and we only got home yesterday! :)

    Beautiful scenery and surroundings. The cottage was clean and lovely. Just one thing, there is absolutely no phone service either, so no phone data could be used at all, which then meant we couldn’t pre-book tickets or look up routes for the next day. Our data worked as we left the cottage, about a mile away.

  • "Fawber Cottage is very cosy and comfortable (with a large, lovely comfortable bed)and is situated in a good place to explore the Yorkshire Dales or go into Cumbria and the Lake District."

    The cottage is in a very quiet location (really on a sheep farm) as it is about half a mile away up a lane from Horton whose pubs can be busy on bank holidays and weekends. Sykes were very good at sorting out one or two difficulties: prompt and helpful. The main drawback is that there is no local grocery shop in Horton (you need to go to Settle (about 6 miles away) or to Hawes(about 15 miles away)); so be careful not to run out of milk or bread.

    It is very difficult to communicate with the owners who do not provide an email. I only managed to get limited communication by texting to a mobile number. Otherwise, the cottage was fine, remote and quiet as we like it. It was comfortable and warm, though we where only there to sleep. It was the base we could get a peaceful nights sleep, and that is what mattered most. All in all, a fine cottage and ideal location.

About the location


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.
