  • "Comfortable and well equipped flat in charming courtyard just steps from the centre of Settle - couldn't have been handier for everything."

    The flat is very small, perfect for one or two, with a neat little kitchen area, sofa and separate bedroom - lovely bed, I slept very well. The owners have thoughtfully provided things like hairdryer (essential as it poured most days), cafetiere, umbrella and big mats by the front door, handy when taking off muddy boots. It was so quiet and peaceful, no noise from anywhere. Settle is a lovely town set in marvellous and accessible walking country. There's a lot going on in the town too - I went to a live streaming from ROH at the delightful Victoria Hall. I wished I could have stayed longer to go to the jazz at the social club and folk at the Golden Lion. I travelled by train - it's on the Settle to Carlisle line, with easy links to Skipton and Lancaster. There's also a good bus to Kirkby Lonsdale and villages beyond. Can't wait to go back....

  • "A lovely little cottage in the heart of the village."

    Excellent access to local shops and walking routes. Cute, cosy, and comfortable, Garden Cottage was perfect for my solo weekend break to ‘get away from it all’.

  • "I was disappointed with the cleanliness there was an old cobweb on the front door window ,the top of the cooker was in need of cleaning."

    the washing up bowl needed freshening up, there was some mould in the shower and mould stains on some of the paint work in the bathroom, one of the coffee mugs on the stand had not been washed properly and lastly a very noticeable dirty mark on the skirting board near the front door added together it felt as if little effort had been made despite the gesture of providing milk and some biscuits.

    We were surprised to read your comments and feel we must challenge them. In fact, we did wonder if you had stayed at a few properties and were confusing them after your departure, which might also explain why you did not bring any concerns to our attention during your stay especially as we were in contact via texts. However, we did notice, upon your departure, that some damage had occurred to the kitchen window blind but that you did not notify us and wonder if this had any bearing on your feedback. The property remains clean, cosy and well equipped. Property Owner

  • "The problem was the size of the flat in relation to its cost and the courtyard picture."

    The flat was fine for walkers who want to sleep there and use as a base; access to Settle ideal but it is so small with the toilet/shower off the living room/kitchen area. To get to the bathroom in the night necessitates the person on the inside of the bed climbing over the other! In fairness, the description does say that the flat is upstairs but the photo suggests that the courtyard sitting area belongs to the Garden Cottage. If you did eat or have a drink there you would be looking into someone's house a couple of yards away. And they at you! At £233 for two nights in September, it is overpriced.

    The photographs taken by Sykes are exactly as the courtyard is and their professionals do not use equipment that distorts and misrepresents. Its important to be accurate as first time visitors need to recognise the site so please be assured that your comments are unfounded. Also, to be clear, a courtyard is an area enclosed by walls or buildings; typically forming a part of a castle or large house - as is the case here. A back yard is different but perhaps what you had in mind. This courtyard belongs to us and no-one else and its use is for guests at Garden Cottage. Up to three other properties have back windows overlooking the courtyard. Two from a first floor level, similar to seeing across a neighbour's garden from a back bedroom window. Property Owner

  • "The lack of parking was a problem also the outside seat was always in the shade under a large bush so we could not sit outside ."

    It spoilt what was a nice holiday.

    Thank you for taking the time to let us know your thoughts on our property. The charm of this fully modernised pre 1659 cottage and the narrow cobbled streets of this old market town, do pre-date the motor car, however, the town does have ample parking; some is free but restricted by time, some is free and without restrictions and there are pay and display car parks close by. The courtyard is owned by us and is for the sole use of guests at Garden Cottage. It has a fixed bench in full sun (on sunny days ) and a light weight bench in the shade, which can be moved around very easily. Kind regards, Property Owner

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.
