  • "Wonderful property, it was our second stay."

    Lovely owners in a quiet little village. Very clean and accurate information ☺️

  • "The property was in a great location, with reserved parking outside."

    It was nice to arrive and receive some yummy treats, the bottle of wine and dogs biscuits were quickly devoured. The property was smart and had everything you would need, the large combined kitchen, dining and living area was great, Loads of great venues near the property, with easy access to the Yorkshire Dales and Lake District. Particularly suited to dog owners who love the countryside. The Coop in Ingleton socked everything we needed and the New Inn in Clapham, which is within working distance, is highly recommended for both and drink. Overall we had a great holiday, the dogs particularly enjoyed it and will return shortly.

  • "Due to the pandemic we had to rearrange our short break twice, but it was well worth."

    Croft Cottage is comfortable, clean, well equipped and close to many of the wonderful areas of the Yorkshire Dales we wanted to visit. The welcome hamper was very welcome and generous...thank you. The fully enclosed garden was ideal for our dogs and would be a sun trap in the Summer months for evening drinks / bbq. Thank you very much, we have no hesitation in recommending the cottage.

    A nice welcome pack with milk , biscuits , fudge , tea and coffee etc . Garden was secure for the dogs which is a must for us . Decking was very slippery due to the frost but plenty of warning about that but the garden soon gets the sun. The house was very warm and comfortable and the owner very welcoming. There is a bathroom and shower room and the beds were soft so we all slept well. The location was good too

  • "‘Croft Cottage’ was beautiful, immaculate and very well equipped, It was better than we expected."

    The cottage is finished to a high standard, with nice finishing touches, beautiful garden, super-fast WiFi and a shower you didn’t want to get out of! We loved it and wished we had booked more than 2 nights. It was a perfect location for exploring the Dales. I would suggest adding another comfortable chair or small sofa in the living space (there’s plenty of room), this is not intended as a negative as the sofa is a nice size already, it would just give more space to ‘lounge out ‘on an evening if you’re a family with teenagers. We will definitely recommend and hopefully return soon :D

The shower upstairs and bath are wonderful! As well as a convenient shower and loo downstairs! The TV even has netflix for those that want it ☺ Newby is a wonderful peaceful, friendly place to be situated and its ideally located for all the large attractions like the Ingleton waterfall walk, Aysgarth falls, Ingleborough walks and cave etc. We highly recommend ingleton pottery as well as driving the hour to Aysgarth and pop into the white Rose candle makers near by as there's nothing like this anymore. The cottage is fantastic and we would love to return. Xx

The property

Found in a little hamlet called Newby, around a 15-minute walk from the village of Clapham in North Yorkshire, Croft Cottage is a semi-detached annexe stone cottage surrounded by beautiful countryside.

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

For the more serious hikers there is direct access onto Ingleborough from the cottage avoiding the need to travel before you start your 3 peaks adventure.

Suited for a small family looking to have some adventures outdoors, or a group of friends looking to complete the Three Peaks Challenge, this property will impress with its high-quality furnishings and large open layout inside, as well as the fantastic outdoor space.

Enter into the vast kitchen, the first section of the open-plan living space, and have fun cooking up tasty meals taking advantage of all the excellent appliances available to you, especially the wine cooler!

Sit around the dining table together and enjoy some delicious food, and afterwards head out onto the decking to indulge in an after-dinner drink on a warm summer evening.

If the day has tired you out completely, then sink into the sumptuous corner sofa and get your favourite shows on the Smart TV.

All that fresh Yorkshire air will make anyone sleepy, so when it's time to head upstairs you can choose from two lovely rooms; a king-size and a twin, both benefiting from Velux windows with some storage for your personal belongings.

Across the hall is the family bathroom where you can soak in the large bath or get a quick shower, whatever the occasion calls for, and if someone is taking too long then just hop in the ground-floor shower room.

Not only is there a decked area with seating at the back of the property, but an enclosed lawned area perfect for letting your four-legged best friend have a run around!

The nearest pubs and shops are a short walk into the pretty village of Clapham, so when no one feels like cooking in the evening you can head over to one of the excellent pubs for some classic tasty pub grub!

The Yorkshire Dales National Park is on your doorstep so it would be wrong not to do a bit of exploring, as well as the Forest of Bowland AONB to the south as well as the Lake District National Park, there are fantastic opportunities for walking, cycling and other various outdoor activities for any age or level.

Croft Cottage will be your Yorkshire countryside hideaway, where you can feel the benefit of the fresh air and home-from-home accommodation.

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.
