  • "It was a lovely clean well equipped cottage in a nice location."

    The owner left a good welcome pack.The only downsides were we found the double bed a bit uncomfortable and we weren't happy with the heating as the owners had control of the settings and we experienced some poor levels of heat

    Lovely views and a comfortable stay. It had everything we needed for a couple of nights and the lovely modern bathroom with fab shower and log burner was much appreciated after a long wet miserable three peaks walk ! Thank you for the wine and biscuits ☺️

  • "The place was plenty big enough and well-equipped for our two couples."

    I liked the big utility room where we could store our boots and hang our wet gear. There is private parking but it is awkward to turn cars round to get out.

    Excellent area with a lovely hotel at the bottom of the drive. Easy walk into Settle and choice of train stations for day trips to Leeds, Skipton etc. Excellent walking from the cottage door too. Will definitely be back again.

  • "The property has everything you need, every room spotlessly clean."

    including bedding, towels etc. Kitchen well stocked with everything you need to make your stay an enjoyable one. A very comfortable cottage with a lovely patio for watching the sheep graze. We have returned to this property for the past three years and will return in the future. Cottage is also well placed for visiting Yorkshire, Lancashire and Cumbria.

  • "Great place, spacious and very well equipped."

    Great location too for visiting the local countryside. Friendly neighbours and owner who came out to check on us when we had difficulties. I would echo what everyone else says about the parking arrangements, but there is plenty of safe and free parking 100yards away. A couple of small things that would have made our stay 100% - The kitchen shelves were very high up - I could only reach the bottom shelf! - maybe provide a step-stool? The single bed mattresses in the little bedroom weren't very comfortable.

  • "Lovely cottage in great location."

    Well equipped and very clean. Parking outside the property is difficult if you have a large vehicle but saying that there is additional parking just a 20 second walk away so was no problem.Great views and very peaceful.

  • "Excellent location for exploring an amazing part of the country."

    Only problem we had was getting in and out of the cottage parking area. By the last day we were getting quite good at it.

  • "Disappointed when arriving at the property."

    Looked very run down, paintwork all peeling off, plant basket at the front of the property which had dead plants in it and a shed nearby with the door wide open that looked like it had a load of rubbish in it. Not a very welcoming first impression. This in no way spoilt the holiday of course, but when you pay good money I think it's reasonable to expect a bit more effort to be put into ensuring your guests have a positive experience.

  • "Many places we have stayed at have quite low seating in the living room."

    The same has to be said for The Coach House. Higher chairs and sofas would be appreciated. Even if only two of the seats available were higher it would be better. Vehicle access to the property is quite tight. It might be good to make mention of this in the listing, especially if the driver isn't confident and has a big car. Some might feel that they have to park further away in the other designated parking area. That having been said, we still enjoyed our stay very much.

  • "A nice property, very clean and tidy."

    We found the vehicle access to the property a challenge. Fortunately we only had a medium sized car, a larger vehicle would have struggled to get anywhere near to it.

    Very cosy and warm, with a good kitchen. Six of us stayed in the three bedrooms, which accommodated us well. The lounge is a bit cramped for six, but the dining table and chairs are a good size. The patio with furniture was great in the sunny evenings. We walked everyday and found the house a great base for this, we would stay again.

    I only have one slight moan, and that is the lack of a dishwasher. I appreciate a lot of guests will eat out, and that this would not be an issue. However for those who do self cater, a dishwasher would be a nice to have item.

  • "Other than a couple of minor issues which were resolved immediately, the cottage, surrounding land and scenery was wonderful."

    The peace and quiet was lovely, just sitting out on the raised patio watching and listening to the wildlife and enjoying a cold drink while cooking on the bbq. The owner had provided a lovely welcome package which was gratefully received and started our holiday off nicely. Overall the cottage served our needs very well, the location is great, giving easy access to every sort of activity you could want from walking, climbing, cycling, national gardens and all sorts of heritage houses. Close by is the town of Settle which can supply your shopping needs, otherwise a broader range of goods can be sort out in Skipton about 30 minutes drive away. I would recommend this cottage to anyone who wants to get away from it all and chill out.

About the location


Settle 0.8 mile; Malham 7.3 miles; Skipton 16.2 miles.

This delightful Ribblesdale village lies below a limestone scar (part of the Craven fault) and just across the river from the bustling market town of Settle. It’s an incredibly pretty place with sturdy houses and cottages, many dating back to the 17th century as the ‘date stones’ over their doorways will confirm. Today the village is still centred around the beautiful St Alkelda’s church, which dates back to the 12th century and the well-known landmark of the domed chapel at the famous Giggleswick School, which dominates the village skyline. Giggleswick itself has two pubs, whilst the wide ranging amenities of the nearby market town of Settle are within easy walking distance. Further afield is the town of Ingleton with its splendid waterfall walk and of course (for the serious walker) the Three Peaks are nearby.
