  • “We had a wonderful stay at Folly Cottage.”

    The property is absolutely lovely and has everything you need. The location could not be better - just a minute from the shops, pubs and cafes of Settle and a great base for exploring the Yorkshire Dales. We had no complaints at all - a perfect holiday cottage. Highly recommended.

The property

Folly Cottage is an endearing mid-terrace stone cottage, located in the bustling town of Settle, North Yorkshire.

Ideal for a group of adults or a small family, this delightful property makes a superb base for enjoying the picturesque scenery and exploring the local area.

Entering via a cobbled street, on-street parking is available before stepping through the stone-walled gate and through the courtyard into the property, a small foyer welcomes you to leave your shoes and coats before making your way through the rest of the house.

From here, an open-plan living space invites you in to enjoy a lovely living area, featuring a TV, an electric woodburning-style stove, a plush sofa and an armchair so you can rest your feet and snuggle up in the evenings.

The open-plan continues into the kitchen and dining area where you will find dining seating for three guests and everything you need to cook up a storm on the induction hob and electric oven, as well as a handy washing machine and a storage cupboard containing a fridge/freezer for your needs throughout your stay.

Climb the stairs up to the first floor where the first of two bedrooms awaits, the first being a single with ample storage for your belongings, complete with hanging space and a full length mirror to prepare for the day ahead.

The second bedroom hosts a double and boasts vast views of the village from the window as well as a charming dressing table and a freestanding wardrobe.

Back into the hallway, the exposed wooden beams ooze traditional cottage character before entering the shower room, fitted with a walk-in shower, vanity-style basin and a WC where you can freshen up between activities.

Outside, the courtyard garden offers seating for three to enjoy a cup of tea in the morning or perhaps an evening glass of wine to catch-up on the day’s events.

The town of Settle has plenty to offer within walking distance from the property so why not explore your surroundings and visit some of the local pubs and restaurants for a well-deserved break from the kitchen.

The village is host to the Talbot Arms, a traditional pub with a spacious garden serving local ales and homemade meals, and Sydney’s, a quaint restaurant specialising in tapas, Artisan pizzas and coffee.

Embrace the culture of your local surroundings by visiting Settle’s only Grade I listed building The Folly, built in the 17th century this magnificent building was once a symbol of wealth and power but now plays host to exhibitions and an Artisan Gallery, coupled with the Coffee House this makes for a fascinating day out for everyone.

Just a short car journey away is the The Richard Whiteley Theatre, named after the legendary countdown presenter, this quirky theatre was established in 2008 by a local fundraising appeal and hosts music shows and theatre productions year round.

For the thrill-seeking type, why not visit Castleberg Rock, a rock-climbing site suitable for all capabilities, or enjoy the nine holes at Settle and Giggleswick Golf Club, equally as serene as it is steeped in history, this hidden gem was formed in 1895 with the first ever match played by Tom Vardon, brother of Harry Vardon of the famous Vardon grip.

Whatever your style of adventure, choose Folly Cottage for an unforgettable trip to Yorkshire.

About the location

SETTLE

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.
