  • "A characterful cottage, full of books and warmth in a very friendly hamlet."

  • "Quirky yet comfortable cottage, we really enjoyed coming back after our days in the Dales."

    Good for our mixed-age/interest group to come together round the dining table to plan excursions and swap stories. Cottage is in a great location for days out even if it is just a walk to Clapham/Ingleborough.

  • "The organisation in terms of sending detailed information was excellent."

    Only issue with the cottage is that the back garden appeared a lot bigger in the photos than it was. Also the WIFI and DVD player did not work well which was annoying, especially for watching films for kids and, in terms of the WIFI, this would be an issue for people who had work to do. My daughter had studying to do and the internet kept cutting out and did not work at all, on occasions, particularly in the lounge. Also an immersion heater system is not ideal for a large family as some left with no warm water.

  • "Quirky cottage steeped in family history with plenty of unusual pieces of wooden furniture made by the owner's father (who also wrote a woodworking instruction manual in the late 1930's)."

    We found the bedrooms extremely comfortable and loved how easy it was to seat the eight of us round the large dining table. Great location for accessing the Dales and, at a bit more of a push, the Lakes. All told we had a great trip.

  • "Lovely warm cosy character period cottage on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales."

    Felt like home as soon as we entered. Information & instructions left and easy to follow to operate heating etc and explore the local area which is stunning. Very enjoyable couple weeks.

  • "This was a very homely house and really felt like pets were welcome, which is refreshing."

    The kitchen was well equipt but lacks work space and enough large saucepans for a large group. An extremely interesting property, the owner has had an interesting and productive life. I enjoyed the mumerations.

  • "The detailed welcome pack from the owner was superb."

    It gave you so much local information and the bottle of wine was an added bonus! The cleanliness of the property was spot on with fresh linen, spare bedding and towels in separate chests.An ideal self catering cottage with ample cooking utensils. We were a party of 6 (5 adults, 1 child and 1 four legged friend) and all bedrooms were spacious, airy although kept that cosy feel with the features. Plenty of hot water for showers etc and a scullery for doggy needs! There was an extra fridge/freezer which came in handy and a super washing machine and tumble dryer.We really enjoyed looking at the artefacts and memorabilia which made the home feel very cherished. The location is so handy to explore the dales on foot or by car. The local pub makes for an interesting walk with a very nice menu. We just wish that we could have stayed longer!

  • "We enjoyed the cosy feel of Brookside even though it was very spacious, with more than enough room for 6 adults, 2 children and a baby."

    We loved the peacefulness in Newbury, and the village green with swings and a stream, entertaining the younger members of our family. Last, but not least, the location in the beautiful Yorkshire Dales was stunning. We found lots of things to do within close proximity of the cottage, which meant we didn't have to spend a long time in the car, which is always a bonus to us. We had a great holiday.... Thank you.

The property

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.
