  • "Loved the cottage."

    Only grouse was the last fire was still in the grate. Usually a new fire is made up.

    We are sorry to hear that the grate had not been cleaned for you. The cleaners have apologised and will ensure that this does not happen again. We look forward to welcoming you back to Settle in the future. Property Owner

    Ideally situated for shops and pubs. In all honesty it is one of the nicest cottages that we have stayed in over the years and is a credit to the owners! We will be back!!

  • "We loved our holiday in Settle."

    “Top House” was spotlessly clean, the furniture was comfortable and there was everything we needed there. The shower (over bath) was lovely, good water pressure and nice and hot. The location of the cottage is perfect too, on the hill above the town, quiet - we slept well - a short stroll to the pubs; and a head start on the upward climb to the Pennine Bridleway. An off road large parking spot was a bonus. The cottage was warm, we had full control of the heating too. The wine (and milk) was appreciated!

    We are so pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay, thank you for your detailed review. We look forward to welcoming you back to Settle in the future. Property Owner

  • "Very comfortable indeed."

    No need to use the car all week - 10 minutes to shops. Finding the property first time is tricky due to very narrow & misleading streets in that part of Settle. Better to pay £1 in Greenfoot Car Park and walk up. The property and garage are on the RIGHT. Take a torch in Winter.

    Beautiful setting and a delightful little garden. Would definitely stay again.

  • "Really snug, so a lovely little cottage for just two of us."

    Might be a squeeze for four, so happy that it was just two of us. Really clean throughout. Well equipped galley kitchen. Nice to have things like washing up liquid, milk, and wash-blocks provided. Would have been better with a more relaxing sofa perhaps, as this one was good as a 'seat' but not really adequate to lie out on. Shame the loo and bathroom aren't separate, but not a problem with one couple at all. Enjoyed the walk up the steep hill to get to the property from the town, as you feel that you are right up in the hills.

    Thank you for your feedback, it's always interesting to hear how our guests have enjoyed staying at Top House. I'm sorry that there were some aspects that disappointed you, however we have not changed anything since you stayed in August/September 2022 so you would not have been surprised by the bathroom arrangements or the sofa. We look forward to welcoming you back in 2024, we always appreciate constructive feedback and note your comments. Property Owner

  • "This is a lovely cottage, good for two people 4 may find it a little small, if you have a small dog the garden is good but if you have a larger dog there is limited space to run around."

    Not a problem for us as we where dog less. Amenities are very good, washing machine, dishwasher oven and hob brilliant. The cottage has been done out beautifully and is very comfortable. The Cottage is short walk from town and amenities, you can sit and have a coffee whilst watch the world go past. The owners where lovely, we have a small problem with the hot water which was sorted out swiftly. Would recommend this cottage to anyone and give it a 10 out of 10 for our stay. We hope to return soon.

  • "An immaculate house, lovely decor and furnishings."

    Very well equipped. The beds were extremely comfortable. We loved our stay here. The only negative feedback, which why I gave a lower score for 'comfort' was the settee which was too small, both in width and depth. It was difficult to get cosy on it. The room could take a larger settee too.

  • "The property was refreshingly clean and bright."

    Lovely spot in beautiful settle. Beds were so comfy we slept so well. Kitchen had everything needed, I cooked a Sunday roast and wasn’t short for anything. My only very small comment which does not mean fits for all was the settee was too small and not comfy for the 2 of us to stretch out on. If 4 people stayed in the house I felt the comfy of chairs were missing for those cosy evenings in. Lastly the garden… unfortunately my dog wouldn’t pee or poo in it as there was no grass at all. Most dogs need a patch. Very small comments for feedback. Besides that our week was perfect. Thanks for the added touches of Prosecco

  • "The cottage is beautiful, clean, bright and airy, in a fantastic position overlooking the hills."

    A perfect base for us to do some great walks from the doorstep, then call in to the nearby pubs on the way back. The kitchen is clean and well equipped, and the bathroom is also immaculate, with a nice big bath and shower. The bedroom is very comfortable, and there is plenty of wardrobe space with hangers provided. We enjoyed counting the sheep dotted around the rooms! We would have liked a larger, softer sofa to stretch out on together in front of the log burner. Also, a slightly later check out time would have meant a less rushed end to the stay. We obviously wanted to make the most of our time away so didn’t want to spend our last night tidying and packing up, but it meant that breakfast on the last morning wasn’t very relaxed or leisurely. Those were our only gripes and overall we had a lovely visit and would definitely go back.

    Thank you for your positive feedback, we’re so pleased that you enjoyed your stay. We’re sorry that the 10am checkout left you feeling rushed on your last day. There is a very small window of opportunity to ensure the cottage is properly serviced between changeovers to the standard we expect. We have to ensure that the cleaners can fit us into their own demanding schedule. Property Owner

  • "A superb cottage in a great quiet position and close to all local amenities."

    The welcome treats and logs for the wood burner were very much appreciated. However, there were 4 adults staying for a week and we only were supplied with 2 Bath towels and 2 toilet rolls which I thought was very poor, certainly when compared to all the other cottages we have stayed in. Maybe it was an oversight by the cleaners?

    I am so sorry that you did not receive sufficient towels and toilet rolls for your stay. This was a very rare oversight by our cleaners, as you correctly identified. What a shame you didn’t ring one of the contact numbers in the information book - we could have had extra supplies to you in less than 5 minutes! I do hope that this will not discourage you from returning to Settle. Property Owner

    The back yard was a bit smaller than we expected but sufficient for our dog to get some fresh air in an enclosed area. A bit of pruning of the bushes would be beneficial but is only a minor comment. We would definitely book it again and recommend it to others.

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.
