    “Great sizeable traditional house in a lovely location.”

    Bottle of wine and a welcome card on arrival- which is very thoughtful. A few things should be tended to though. The radiators in both the living room and dining room failed to heat up. We tried every permutation with no result and ended up having to heat up these rooms with the little fan heater supplied, which wasn’t ideal. SKY signal on the tv has major interference, and it is very frustrating to watch anything if I’m honest. Couldn’t find any board games - which should always be a standard in any rented house. For a large house ( we were 2 families) not enough frying pans to cook breakfast or dinner with. There was only one very small one. Wifi’s pretty poor too. It’s very intermittent and impossible to get in the living room and various other areas of the house - even when it does work. I ended up using my phone’s data far more than the WiFi. Lastly, and I know it’s someone else’s house - but did feel that all the photographs of the owner and his family could have been at least temporarily taken down. Bit strange tbh, and trying to explain to our kids why there were scantily clad pictures of someone’s wife or partner on the walls was, well, unexpected to say the least :-) I guess it made for interesting conversation though:-) If those above points were taken care of we’d be looking at 10 stars - and if this house came up again for the right price I’d certainly consider it as it ticks a lot of boxes; however, when you’re relaxing the last thing you want to be dealing with is stupid stuff like the above. Hope this helps!

The cottage

Clapham 1.6 miles.

Brookside dates back to 1687, probably earlier.

It is one of the older, permanently inhabited, dwellings of the Yorkshire Dales.

The Grade II listed cottage overlooks the village green, and has a well-stocked back garden with lawn, bonsai oak tree and an alder.

The cosy, family-friendly living and the incredible, beautiful location make this ideal for families or parties to come and relax in the Yorkshire Dales.

Step through the old front door and enter into the flagstone hallway, leading you to the fantastic large dining room, a charming room with ample dining and some fantastic features with an ash table, a wonderful sideboard and a glass enclosed book case dating from 1900.

The sitting room is substantial and cosy, boasting a TV and woodburning stove to make a fantastic place to sit and watch a film with your family.

Brookside also comes with a fantastic hand-crafted wooden kitchen, boasting all the equipment and cooking/serving utensils to cater for up to 15 people as well as the utility room next door.

The easy to use and safe stairs takes you to the first floor, which is floored with old, traditional timbers and boasts 4 well-presented, delightful bedrooms including a room with a TV laid out for relaxing during the day whilst sleeping two at night.

There is also a modern, fresh family bathroom.

The garden to the rear is pleasant and well-kept with a sizeable lawn, raised decking with seating and some stunning flowerbeds.

The hamlet of Newby lies on the southern slopes of Ingleborough, the most famous of the Three Peaks of the Yorkshire Dales National Park.

A short fifteen minutes walk takes you onto the moorlands, slopes, occasionally cliffs and the odd pond, on the mountain itself; and the spectacular pot hole, Gaping Gill.

The Dales open up before you.

The quality of the nearby village of Clapham is witnessed by Alan Bennett having a home there.

Further afield, glorious locations are within an hour's drive.

To the west, the Lake District National Park, now a World Heritage Site.

The Forest of Bowland lies to the south, rather off the beaten track with wonderful tracks, woodlands and vistas.

Malham Tarn and the delightful market town of Skipton lie to the east; and the seaside of Morecambe, round to wonderful Sunderland Point, resonating of the 1950s, is to the south west.

There are activities galore: walking, cycling and horse/pony trekking, the show caves, waterfalls and seaside, abandoned lead mining communities, bamboos and rhododendrons brought from northern Burma some considerable time ago, nature trails, reserves and conservation areas, bird watching, travelling on a steam train, finding the nearby ruins of 'Old Newby', visiting the settings of Charlotte Bronte's Jane Eyre; even seasonal helicopter trips.

Brookside is a sublime traditional cottage in a fantastic location to be enjoyed at any time of the year.

About the location


Ingleton 4 miles; Settle 6 miles.

The picturesque Dales village of Clapham is situated in the heart of the famous "Three Peaks" country. Surrounded by spectacular limestone, the Nature Trail at Clapham passes by a lake and mature woodland before reaching Ingleborough Show Cave - spectacular whatever the weather! Follow the footpath further and wonder at the magnificent Trow Gill, before continuing past Gaping Gill (Britain’s largest discovered pothole) on the way to the summit of Ingleborough. The nearby White Scar Caves are also well worth a visit and there is a superb four-mile waterfall walk in the village of Ingleton. Clapham offers a village shop, a vintage gift shop and a bespoke wool and handicraft shop, as well as a pub, a bar and cafes. The village is an ideal base for walking, climbing or potholing and horse/pony trekking, as there are numerous bridle paths in the area. An excellent centre for touring the Yorkshire Dales and the Forest of Bowland, with easy access to both the Lake District and the west coast.
