“The house was amazing, fully equipped, relaxing perfect for larger families and pets, the garden was fantastic too, fully enclosed and safe.”
We were made very welcome and had a very memorable family Christmas in such a beautiful part of the Dales.
We were made very welcome and had a very memorable family Christmas in such a beautiful part of the Dales.- Mrs Mcmorrine, December 2018
“House was lovely, but a slight disappointment that 4 adults had to share attic space with 1 shower room; whereas 3 other couples had luxurious en-suite.”
I know this is the nature of the house but this disparity was poorly differentiated in the description and indeed not shown by the photographs. The second shower room for use by the attic room was 2 floors down and not at all convenient. Therefore 2 families had to share facilities. This was unexpected.- Mr Langfield, November 2018
“The purpose of our stay was to bring friends together in one place to celebrate my 50th Birthday.”
The accommodation was warm very clean and exactly what we wanted to be able to relax have a nice drink eat in a very nice pub/ hotel just around the corner and then spend time in the hills and exploring the caves. The rooms were big with plenty of seating for us all to come together, there was enough space for us to break out for some "ME" time. Five adults and five children ranging from 10-17 were swallowed up by the house. It had a nice period charm with essential modern day essentials. We will revisit as it was just perfect property in a perfect location.- Mr Gomery, November 2018
“The house and the location and the area were perfect.”
Would highly recommend it.- Mrs Howells, June 2018
“The house was lovely and the huge kitchen and dining area facilitated family meals and evening socialising.”
Settle was a very friendly and welcoming town with some excellent places to eat. Restful pace and locals happy to chat. Countryside brilliant and we enjoyed a number of hill walks in the mainly sunny weather before back to No 3 and a glass of wine on the terrace. Definitely recommend No 3, Settle and Yorkshire.- Mrs Bingham, May 2018
Beautifully decorated, comfortable house, well located within short walking distance of the station and lots of lovely little shops, pubs and cafes. We used our car just the once all week. The only difficulty was deciding where to walk with such a variety of short or long hikes straight from the front door. If we fancied further afield we jumped on the train. A visit to the train station is not to be missed. The property was absolutely ideal for our extended family of mixed ages and walking abilities/desires. A highlight for us was taking turns producing the evening meal using the Aga. We certainly got better at it as the week progressed. The kitchen is beautifully equipped and sitting round the large kitchen table eating our evening meal was a great way to finish each day. Another highlight was the bathrooms. The showers were fab but even I a shower person was tempted by the free standing bath after a very snowy, long walk. Being soft southerners and visiting in March with snow on the ground we did find the house a little cold downstairs (the bedrooms/bathrooms were lovely and warm) however stoking up the open fires or sitting next to the Aga soon warmed us up.- Em_2529, March 2018
“We loved our stay in Settle - the house is beautiful”- Ms Harrison, March 2018
“The owners were very responsive to a minor issue, which was much appreciated.”
The property provided us all the perfect place to enjoy our holiday from, such a fabulous house. The kitchen/diner was excellent in allowing a good sociable area for everyone, the bedrooms were really comfortable, spacious and the en-suites were modern and well equipped.- Mr Arthurton, March 2018
“A superb house for a large family gathering.”
Beautifully situated in a lovely market town surrounded by fabulous countryside? We would recommend this house as a special to stay.- Mrs Hall, February 2018
“Our stay at No 3 Settle was just wonderful!”
Eleven of us plus a dog stayed here for our Christmas holiday together and it was lovely. The house is beautiful with some stunning features. It’s very well equiped, spacious, clean and welcoming with ample space for us all. It was already decorated for Christmas with a lovely welcome pack awaiting our arrival. The owners have thought of everything and nothing is too much trouble. They village is a couple minutes walk away, where there are a couple of nice pubs, cafes and shops and everyone is really friendly. There are some lovely walks to do too, if only we would have had more time there. We would definitely recommend this property.- Mr Stephens, December 2017
“The family met to celebrate my wife's special birthday.”
There were 9 adults, 2 children and a toddler. My wife and I along with one of our granddaughters arrived first. As we looked around the property it was one "Wow" after another. The accommodation was great and suited the whole family. The owners Judith and Martin had added lots of extras like a Christmas tree and a card and present for my wife. It really made our visit seem special. The facilities at No. 3 were great, huge kitchen and dining room, log burning fires in both sitting rooms and a super welcoming pack. It was quite cold outside so Martin set the central heating so we could control it our selves via the thermostat. It was very welcome on returning from walks into the town. The property is ideal for a large family gathering and its location in the town makes it so convenient. We enjoyed the switching on of the Christmas lights and a good firework display. At other time it would provide a great base for exploring. A big thank you to Sykes but especially Judith and Martin for helping to make a special weekend.- Mr Bramfitt, November 2017

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.
