The property

Sitting in the picture-postcard town of Settle in North Yorkshire is this, mid-terrace cottage, Ribblesdale Cottage.

A wonderful base for a family of seven, Ribblesdale Cottage sits on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales National Park, whilst also being within easy reach of the Forest of Bowland Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and the Lake District National Park.

The delightful dwelling rests near a train station, however, there is also on-street parking available, for added convenience.

Upon arrival, make your way inside to find a well-presented kitchen/diner, where wooden-topped units offer plenty of food preparation space whilst housing a range of appliances that will please any budding chef; continue up one step to find the dining area, which easily seats all the group whilst offering views of the country and a nearby rugby pitch.

Move across the ground floor to find a charming sitting room that is ideal for a post-dinner sit-down, where you can watch a show with the family on the TV or curl up with an entertaining book.

When the day draws to a close, head upstairs to find two tastefully furnished bedrooms on the first floor, with one being a compact double enjoying further views over Settle and the surrounding country and the other being a family room featuring a double, single and a TV; climb the stairs again to discover an attic bedroom offering a double, whilst being bathed in light by skylight windows and adjoining a handy en-suite shower room.

The bedrooms on the first floor additionally enjoy access to a family bathroom, where you can soak up in the bath after a day of walking or cycling.

The enclosed back patio is a fabulous spot that offers ample seating, so you can enjoy dining alfresco amongst your quaint surroundings.

Settle not only features an array of amenities, including the renowned Golden Lion pub, but offers tours around the brilliant Museum of North Craven Life, an esteemed golf club, as well as walking trails leading into the Yorkshire Dales National Park, where hikers can come across the caves of Victoria and Jubilee, along with the famed Scaleber Force Waterfall.

Spend more time in the Yorkshire Dales National Park and travel to Malham for a day out filled with the sights of Malham Cove, Janet's Foss and Gordale Scar; walk a little further out of Malham towards Malham Tarn Estate, where plenty of cycling can be enjoyed throughout the lakeside farms and meadows.

The market town of Skipton makes for a fantastic day out for all the family, with Skipton Castle immersing you in local history, the Raven Tree Top Adventure offering a chance at exploring a high ropes course and the Skipton Waterways providing lovely strolls throughout the town.

For more fun in the Dales, be sure to travel to Grassington, Ingleton and Chapel-le-Dale, or venture a little further afield to discover the Cumbrian delight of Kendal.

Spend some quality time away with your loved ones at Ribblesdale Cottage.

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.
