  • "Lovely cottage in the heart of Settle."

    Beautifully decorated with very modern refurbished fully equipped kitchen. Lovely and clean with good appliances. Loved the speakers as we try not to watch TV so really enjoyed playing music while we relaxed. Beds really comfortable and loved the attic room. Lovely little garden where we ate breakfast every morning. Good local shops pubs and takeaways can definitely recommend the Indian and The Golden Lion. Really appreciated the welcome email I received on the morning I arrived and the welcome gift we received. Lots out and about to do. Walks locally, the Settle to Carlisle railway on your doorstep and beautiful Bolton Abbey and Ingleby falls only 30-40 min drive away. Also 3 peaks if you fancy a challenge. Only slight issue lots of stairs not a problem for us but not if you have difficulty with stairs but this is mentioned in the cottage blurb so absolutely no issue for us. Also parking can be tricky as on street parking that neighbours seem to monitor but again we managed to get parked every night however there is a car park in the village at a small cost. Would definitely stay again and definitely recommend.

    Thanks Kerry for the lovely feedback! So glad you enjoyed the speakers and the garden especially! The stairs certainly work off the Dales Ice Creams! You were absolutely wonderful guests we’d love to welcome back in the future. All the best A&L - Ribble Cottage Property Owner

  • "This was the perfect base for a car-free holiday."

    We came by train and had wonderful trips out along the gorgeous Settle-Carlisle line. It was great being in the centre of town, so close to the shops and footpaths in all directions. The cottage was absolutely lovely. One of the best we have ever stayed in.

    Thank you so much for your feedback! We are so pleased you enjoyed exploring the Yorkshire dales. You were fantastic guests and we’d love to see you come back again soon. All the best A&L - Ribble Cottage Property Owner

The property

Tucked away in the bustling market town of Settle, North Yorkshire is this lovely, four-storey property, Ribble Cottage.

Benefitting from an enclosed courtyard, close proximity to the local amenities and an enviable position on the fringes of the Yorkshire Dales National Park, Ribble Cottage welcomes six guests, ideal for a family or group of friends craving a peaceful retreat in this lovely corner of Yorkshire.

After parking up, enter your new home-from-home to be greeted by an inviting sitting room, complete with TV where you and your loved ones can unwind and catch up on your favourite shows after a long day of exploring.

Venturing down to the lower-ground-floor you will find the well-equipped kitchen, boasting a fantastic array of appliances, guaranteed to ease your self-catered stay; rustle up a feast and settle down at the dining table, popping open a bottle of fizz to toast to your memorable getaway as you plan your exciting itinerary for the days ahead.

If you prefer to spend your days alfresco, head out to the enclosed courtyard where you can play card games or simply soak up your lovely setting until the stars appear overhead.

On the first-floor, freshen up with use of the sleek shower room, ready to complete your evening routine and relax in your chosen bedroom, with either a king-size, a bunk or an additional king-size on the second-floor to select from, each with plenty of storage so you can enjoy a clutter-free stay.

If you can tear yourself away, head into the centre of Settle, home to The Museum of North Craven Life, the River Ribble and a wonderful selection of amenities, including a range of shops for stocking up on the essentials and splendid cafes, pubs and restaurants offering the perfect refuelling stop.

Further afield, head to the Scaleber Force Waterfall to experience the Yorkshire landscape in all its unspoiled beauty, or visit Malham Cove and Gordale Scar, a deep limestone ravine with two stunning waterfalls where you can soak in the beautiful views.

Journey to Ingleborough for Ingleborough Cave and the Ingleton Waterfalls Trail or spend the day in the market town of Skipton where you can tour the grounds of Skipton Castle, enjoy a canal boat ride along the Leeds and Liverpool Canal or delight in traditional fish and chips at the popular Bizzie Lizzie’s.

However you choose to spend your days in North Yorkshire, do it from the charming base of Ribble Cottage.

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.
