  • "Great property in a fantastic location."

    Out in the countryside so lovely and dark and quiet, yet still only 10 minutes drive from Settle with all it's shops, pubs and takeaways. Great location for walking (Penyghnet and Ingleton) and cycling (Gisburn Forest) Property was split over 3 floors so loads of room, and the underfloor heating was brilliant. Room to store bikes in the barn, all the facilities you need, and although the listing said wifi was patchy it was actually really good. Met the owner who was really helpful in recommending places to go. All in all a fantastic holiday.

  • "Modern, spacious, quiet and with a comfortable double bed."

    13A plug near door for charging hybrids like Volvo. Wonderful views from kitchen window across the Ribble valley with trains in the distance approaching the famous Settle / Carlisle railway (Ribblehead Viaduct etc). Penygent can often be seen to the North depending on weather conditions. Handy for visit to Giggleswick School Chapel and Attermire Scar.

  • "We thought the accomodation was very clean and had everything we needed."

    We loved the space, and the thoughtful touches. It was comfortable but also practical for muddy boots and wet clothes after a day's walking. We loved being in amongst nature, with sheep, horses and rabbits all close by in the grounds.

  • "The Cottage is well placed for easy access to walks in the area including a pleasant stroll alongside the river into the town centre of Settle."

    The kitchen is suitably provisioned but a casserole dish would have been a welcome addition. The beds were comfortable while the lounge provides extra space if you want some down time.

  • "The property is a beautiful conversion in an outstanding location and certainly lives up to expectations, a full Sky package is a most welcome bonus."

    Settle is an interesting place to visit with plenty of shops, pubs and cafes.There are plenty of local walks and famous tourist spots such as Malham Cove, Ribblehead Viaduct, and Skipton Castle are within a short drive. The nearby pub, (The Craven Arms) is excellent, with great food and beer, if you need a good Sunday dinner you will need to book a table. There are two minus points to mention, first it is stated that the property has a slow WiFi signal, the week we were there there was no WiFi signal at all, to some people this fact could be important, secondly is although the kitchen is well equipped, the saucepans and trays are in poor condition and well past their use by date, they need replacing, again this is important to people who do not wish to eat out every day. On the whole this is a great property in a great location, we loved it.

    It provided a great base for exploring the Dales and was only a few miles from Settle which provided some good options for eating out. We’d definitely visit again.

  • "The cottage is modern, cosy and very well equipped with a panoramic view from the kitchen window."

    It was a delight to see lambs and sheep in open fields when approaching and departing from the cottage. The cottage is ideally located to visit many places of interest both in the Yorkshire Dales and South Cumbria. A great place to stay for walking and if you wish to travel on the Settle to Carlisle Railway. I can highly recommend this cottage.

    It was exceptionally clean and fresh. The welcome by the owners was great and their tips on where to visit were brilliant. We would heartily recommend this cottage. It is surrounded by fields but the location means that you can easily get to the main roads. The layout of the cottage made it very comfortable and easy to settle into. The area is great for exploring with or without kids.
