Holly Dene Cottages
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. A great holiday destination to get away from it all and indulge in country living at its very best!
