    The house is compact but has everything needed for 2 people, and importantly a comfortable bed. the house is very nicely decorated, and a lovely welcome pack was left for us. I would definitely stay again.

  • "A great clean, warm, well appointed property, decorated to a really good standard."

    The cottage is in a prime location within 3 minutes walk to the centre of Settle, yet far enough away for a quiet and relaxing break. Quality Fish and Chip Shop, Pizza outlet and a Chinese takeaway literally 1 minute from the cottage door. Great communication from the owner before, during and after the rental, and as I left my glasses at the property the owner forwarded them back to me quickly and without fuss. Highly Recommended.

    Car park over the road, free 1800 to 0900. 1 min walk to town centre. Yes, the living area is small and quirky but it didn’t bother us. Kitchen had everything we needed. Lovely welcome pack and great communication with owner. Highly recommended.

  • "We enjoyed very much our 5 nights, and would certainly consider staying again."

    The property is very well placed in Settle, just one minute's walk to the centre, and we had no problem parking for free during the week on Church Road, again just a minute's walk the other direction. The bed and sofa are comfortable, the bathroom is spacious with a good pan-shower, and the kitchen has all the essential facilities, including a small dishwasher. We thought the cleanliness throughout was excellent, and were baffled by the one earlier review of the property which questioned this. If there was any "downside" it was that there is no private garden, and being just behind some restuarants, the view from the front is of industrial rubbish bins, with some accompanying noise when being used. However, although this would mean we would not stay here for a main, 2 week summer holiday, this was a minor issue, and would not put us off staying here again, for a short break. Overall, this is a great property, perfectly located in Settle, and we would be very pleased to stay again.

    I'm so delighted you enjoyed your stay and thank you for thoughtful and considered feedback. I'd love to welcome you back to Walkers Barn in the future. Property Owner

  • "Well maintained, centrally situated and good for a couple who are out doing things during day times."

    Size of sitting area, a modestly-sized space at the bottom of the stairs, somewhat limiting in the evenings. We wondered if this area might better suit the dining area. Excellent bedroom and bathroom. Velux window of bedroom needs a blind, we were awoken at sunrise. Outside seating at front of cottage faces the rear of a Chinese takeaway and their rubbish bins, so not useable really. Adverse comments provided to assist owners, not big quibbles. Owner's welcome pack was very kind. Oven was in need of a clean I'm afraid.

    Thank you for you feedback and glad you enjoyed your stay. The bedroom velux is fitted with a black out blind that is operated by the remote control located on the wall next to the above the bedside table for our visitors convenience. We do take pride in the standard of cleanliness in our bijoux barn , so apologies that the cooker was below expectations , we will ensure this is kept clean. Property Owner

  • "Lovely cottage and very cosy, great bed and really lovely furnishings."

    We found the cottage in need of a deep clean, the floor in the bathroom was quite dirty and there was dust and hair accumulated on the door. The drawers in the kitchen all had dust and crumbs in, and the door behind the sofa had lots of cobwebs and bits of plant growing through the gaps. We couldn’t adjust the heat level in the bedroom (maybe an issue with the radiator?) and the toilet roll holder is loose in the bathroom. Please also be aware that we saw 3 or 4 rats outside the front of the property in daytime and nighttime, just in case the property is going to be empty you don’t want them getting in!

    I'm glad you found the cottage comfy and cosy. Im sorry you found areas of cleanliness not up to standard as we do take pride in the cleanliness of the cottage so will ensure the issues mentioned are rectified. Property Owner
