  • "Lovely cottage to have as a base for exploring the surrounding dales."

    Very comfy and cosy at all times despite some very cold, windy days outside. Well equipped kitchen and spacious bedrooms made it a very nice place to stay, would definately return if we look to tackle the peaks we couldn't get up this time around

  • "The accommodation is outstanding."

    In the most beautiful location. Was such a relief to find milk in the fridge. The only thing I would change is the bed.

  • "The properties are in a lovely location set way back from the road accessed via a smooth tarmac track through a sheep field with rabbits and their babies everywhere along the hedgerows."

    The Barn conversion itself is really a terrace of 3 in a row where the owners occupy the Left hand side property - so Steve and Anna are on hand if required. Pendle View was very clean and well equipped for a great family stay - our 3 kids occupied the top floor (6, 6, & 10) and they loved sleeping 3 single beds in a row in the massive top floor room (we moved the beds around a bit as there was loads of room!) ….. a great place for the kids to be free and roam and see the lambs and calves in the next field and chase the bunnies around. Lovely walks straight from the doorstep and a great meandering and flat walk along the river Ribble into Settle - about a 6 miles round trip but with food and ice cream in Settle and paddling along the way the kids were easily spurred on to do the walk a couple of times. The location was perfect allowing us to quickly access walks, caves, waterfalls and the amazing Yorkshire Dales... we had only travelled up from Leeds but it was like being in another world away from work and school and the constraints of Covid (my wife and I being teachers and NHS workers). A lovely relaxing stay - and we will be back!

  • "Great location for exploring without having to travel too far for great walking and scenery."

    Property very clean, spacious and comfortable. Fascinating watching the behaviour of the new born lambs from the property. We would have no hesitation in booking again should we wish to revisit the area.

    Location and proximity to so many wonderful places was second to none. We both felt that this was the best place we have stayed during our years of holidays and touring. Anna and Steve were warm and welcoming hosts. We hope to be back to stay again, sooner rather than later.

    Situated in a lovely quiet location with great views this really is a well equipped cottage. Each day we went out walking to some beautiful places, Ingleton waterfalls, Malham Cove, Gaping Gill etc with some lovely pubs to eat at and all in such easy distance to the cottage. Another great stay, thank you!

    A walk along the river takes you to Settle for coffee and a change of scene, and not faraway is Stainforth Force and the lime kilns, definitely worth a trip. This well equipped comfortable cottage has all the comforts of home, and a place you could just move into.

  • "Anna and Steven who owned the cottage were so lovely and welcoming."

    The cottage was extremely clean and all the luxurys you required and there is even full sky TV. Could not connect to any internet and quickly used up my allowance with my provider but it was then actually really nice being off the grid for half of the week. Its in a central location and the views are out of this world. If you have an extremely stressful job as I do then this is a must, I left all my stress in a suitcase at the front door when I arrived and went I left the stress suitcase was gone, magic ❤

  • "Oh my goodness, what a find."

    A very well thought of cottage, with actually everything you needed to stay in, cook and relax. But where this cottage really comes into its own is the location, set a few minutes from the Town of Settle, its off the main road and in a location, that you couldn't help but fall in love with. With uninterrupted views of scenery, livestock and the occasional steam train, we couldn't ask for anymore. You could literally walk in just about any direction along some un-busy paths or the location put you central for many local attractions that could be driven too. We look for a holiday home that matches or exceeds our own home, this did just that. You would have to be very picky to think of how this cottage could be improved.

    The under floor heating was a real bonus - we felt the cold when we returned home! The kitchen, in particular, was way above our expectations: far nicer than ours at home and with those spectacular views, it really made the cottage for us. The arrival gifts of Prosecco and mine pies was kind and greatly appreciated . We have recommended the place to our family ....

    This cottage was one of the very best we have booked through Sykes. Loved the size of the rooms, and the outlook from the kitchen was fantastic. We felt welcome from the moment we entered the cottage, a bottle of wine, tea bags and cake. Plenty of information supplied, clean and spotless accommodation. Easy access to A roads and an ideal base to tour around Yorkshire and Lancashire. Be prepared to shoo cattle and sheep off the track, but all in all a fantastic holiday.

Rathmell 1.4 miles. A pair of outstanding semi-detached stone barn conversions, in a secluded location amid beautiful rolling Dales countryside just few miles from the lovely market town of Settle. These fully-renovated conversions are set over three storeys, and offer high class fixtures and fittings throughout, perfect for a romantic or family break. The grounds are spacious and the children will love the meadowland and watching the horses grazing in the nearby field. With a host of scenic walks from the doorstep, guests can enjoy quiet strolls through meadowlands, down quiet country lanes and for more experienced and energetic guests there is of course the famous Three Peaks challenge. The Settle Loop is a bridleway which can be walked, cycled or enjoyed on horseback. For those less inclined towards the great outdoors, there are many sightseeing activities in the area. Visit the Trough of Bowland, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, or head into the heart of the Yorkshire Dales National Park with its famous limestone crags and the unending dry stone walls. Locally, the Courtyard provides an excellent Bistro, tea room, award-winning cheese and showrooms with locally-made furniture. Settle is a perfect Dales village with a thriving community, excellent old pubs, a central square with weekly market and access to the not to be missed Settle-Carlisle railway. A little further down the valley, Skipton, host to the 2014 Tour De France, offers a great day out with its Norman castle, canal trips and award-winning high street.
