    Elizabeth and Tim mailed us regarding earlier arrival time if we wished, which was really helpful with our friends having a dog. Lovely part of the UK and would come to this area again. Pete and Sharon

  • "The cottage was very welcoming and cosy, a good reflection of the listing."

    We (a small adult family reunion) stayed over Christmas and the hosts had made an extra effort to decorate which was much appreciated - there was even a little Christmas tree! For most of the week we cooked meals - the kitchen well equipped, practical, and spacious. The lounge was a great place to relax for reading and games, especially with the gas fire. The bedrooms and bathrooms were very comfortable, though as noted in the listing the top bedroom with twin beds has low beams - ideally suited for children, but adults need to duck! The location is also great, convenient for walking as well as the village centre and railway station. Thanks for a very pleasant stay.

  • "Just returned from a fantastic stay at Chandlers Cottage (4 adults and 2 children)."

    The cottage is just beautiful and very cosy, as well as feeling surprisingly spacious. Every inch of the property was spotlessly clean and the beds were super comfy. The children slept in the attic bedroom but this would be fine for adults sleeping also, you'd just need to remember to mind your head on the beams. Communication from the hosts, Elizabeth and Tim was fantastic right from the very off and they provided quick responses to any queries we had. The yummy chocolate cake they kindly left for our arrival was also a lovely, appreciated touch. The location of the cottage is just ideal for exploring the Yorkshire Dales, with walks right from the doorstep. We also took a short drive (6 miles) to Malham and did the Janet's Foss, Goredale Scar and Malaham Cove Walk. Just at the end of the lane from the cottage is a lovely little market town with plenty of idyllic country pubs. I would definitely give this accommodation a 10/10, honestly couldn't fault it and we all had the best time. Would wholeheartedly recommend!

  • "Beautiful, thoughtfully arranged cottage making maximum use of the space without spoiling it’s traditional feeling."

    Loved the sensible use of wooden downstairs floors which were easy to keep clean, but did not detract from the originality of the rooms. Soft furnishings and artwork, which represented the abundance of talent in Yorkshire were on show. The cottage guide provided interesting information about their origin and availability. We felt totally at ease!

  • "Lovely cottage."

    Comfortable for four adults, would have felt crowded for six. The listing does make clear the limited headroom in the top bedroom (six foot tall adult cannot stand up straight), in addition the twin beds are narrow. Would be fine for children. Fantastic location and wonderful west facing patio (shame our weather was a bit cool!)

  • "A lovely house, within walking distance of everything."

    It was spotlessly clean and had everything you could need. Lovely seated area outside. Plenty of street parking, but car park only a few minutes walk away as well. Lovely walks from the door, and only a few minutes walk from nice pub and shops.

  • "We had a really good experience at the cottage and will return."

    Access to the attic room had low beams and steep stairs but it was great for our children and the 6 beds accommodation is perfect for families and young parties. We found parking a little difficult at times and it would have been good to have a drying room, but overall we loved the comfort and artistic touches of the cottage.

  • "We enjoyed our holiday in this beautiful town, Chandlers Cottage is a brilliant location, and the cottage was well-appointed and was good quality."

    However, we did not feel the property ought to have been advertised as having parking, as it did not. There is no street parking space 'attached' to the property, unlike the others on the street, which means taking a neighbour's/engaging in a daily battle for spaces, or paying for the town car park. Knowing this would not necessarily have stopped us from choosing this cottage, but we felt this should have been honestly stated. We also felt the cottage was very much for up to 4 people. We were not able to all sit together in the living-room, and we therefore wouldn't stay there again.

    Thank you for staying at Chandlers Cottage and providing feedback on your stay. We're glad you enjoyed the location and the quality of the cottage. Sykes Cottages advertise the property as roadside parking, this means that it is first come, first serve. The seating in the living room can sit 6 people comfortably as shown in the pictures, we're sorry you found this not to be the case. Property Owner

  • "Chandlers cottage was in an ideal location to explore the Yorkshire Dales and the town of Settle, which has everything you need for the week."

    It was lovely to arrive to find milk in the fridge, and tasty cake and very pretty flowers on the table.There were 5 of us in the cottage and were all very comfortable in our rooms- although the top room has limited height it was not an issue for our son. We would definitely use this cottage again as a base and the lady in the tourist office was very helpful and informative. We had booked our dog but decided not to bring him and are quite pleased as it rained lots and not sure we would have coped with him well in the cottage. Also an airer would be very helpful to dry stuff off.

  • "The cottage is very well located in the centre of Settle with easy access to shops, restaurants and walks out of the town."

    Although the cottage does not have parking we found it easy to find parking nearby for both our cars every night. The cottage itself is nicely decorated and has a lot of character. There were five adults in our group and we fitted in well - but you would need to be agile/fit to make it up into the attic room as the staircase is tight.

  • "Everything about our stay was brilliant."

    The location is right in the centre of Settle and is situated close to the Yorkshire 3 Peaks, Malham Cove and other areas of the Dales. The house itself is lovely - comfy beds, good facilities and is really nice and cosy. Well worth the money and we've already said that we want to go back!

  • "Overall the accommodation was very good and I would recommend it."

    The only real issue was the access to the loft room. Although slightly steep, the stairs into the loft were no problem. There is a beam across the top of the stairs which makes access awkward.

  • "We had a lovely week in this cottage over the Christmas period."

    The property has a cosy and characterful feel, while being well equipped, practical and clean. The kitchen is modern and has plenty of space for dining, the sitting area is comfortable, the heating and hot water work well, and the shower and roll top bath are great. The location is spot on too - a 2 minute walk into central Settle while being on a very pretty street which immediately takes you out into the countryside for a variety of shorter or longer walks. Elizabeth and Tim were great hosts - answering our various questions and taking the time to sort nice Christmas decorations for the cottage.

The property

Nestling in the historic heart of Upper Settle, this lovely cottage was once a Victorian chandlery.

Located on the Pennine Bridleway and Yorkshire Dales Cycleway, with beautiful walks straight from the door, the cottage is within a short and scenic walk of Settle market square with its shops, cafés and award-winning pubs.

With accommodation over three floors, and featuring artwork by outstanding Yorkshire and Pennine artists, Chandlers Cottage offers a stylish and comfortable retreat for couples, families and groups of friends.

Enter the light and airy sitting room, with a classic Dales view from its huge original windows; at night, turn on the fire and the lamps and cosy up with the Yorkshire lamb’s wool cushions and throws.

Go through glazed double doors to a pretty cottage-style kitchen/diner, well-equipped with everything you’ll need for preparing delicious home-cooked meals.

Two beautifully presented bedrooms are located on the first floor: the double includes a window seat and its own en-suite with walk-in shower, while the twin room enjoys views across Settle.

The delightful bathroom boasts a luxurious freestanding bath, perfect for soaking in after a busy day’s sightseeing.

Up a steep staircase to the second floor, discover a cosy and characterful twin bedroom under the eaves, with low ceilings and velux windows.

Tucked away at the back of the cottage you’ll find an enclosed suntrap patio, ideal for relaxing with a glass of wine and planning your holiday.

Within a short stroll of the cottage you can visit England’s smallest art gallery - the Gallery on the Green, enjoy delicious coffee and cake at The Folly Museum, or stock up on food and essentials at independent local shops.

Stunning Dales landscapes including Attermire Crags, prehistoric site Victoria Cave, and the waterfalls of Stainforth, Catrigg and Scaleber Force are all within a 3-mile radius, offering excitement around every corner.

Chandlers Cottage provides the perfect base for exploring Dales attractions including Malham Tarn and Cove, the Settle Carlisle railway, and the Three Peaks.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £250.

About the location


Malham 6 miles; Skipton 17 miles; Kendal 25 miles.

The bustling market town of Settle lies at the south west rim of the Yorkshire Dales National Park, nestled beside the largest outcrop of limestone in Britain - a region of scars, cliffs, caves and potholes - amongst some of the most picturesque scenery in North Yorkshire. Tuesday is market day in Settle, when the square is filled with stalls offering a wide variety of crafts and goods. The market place is surrounded by local businesses, the centre being dominated by The Shambles, an historic three storey building with shops on two levels and houses above, and the Town Hall. There is a good selection of restaurants and pubs and a public swimming pool. The Victoria Hall has entertainment and other activities such as folk nights throughout the year. The famous Settle-Carlisle Railway crosses some of the most beautiful and inspiring upland scenery in the country. Natural attractions such as Malham Cove and Gordale Scar are within easy reach, as are the nearby Dales towns of Skipton and Malham. Settle is in the midst of excellent walking country and is a good base for touring the Dales, the Lake District and the Forest of Bowland.
