  • "Another excellent weekend in this wonderful cottage."

    Clean, tidy and very comfortable. Great for a family of friends get together.

  • "We were very happy with the property and its location."

    In cold and frosty early winter (beautiful!) weather, the house was warm and cosy. It is well equipped and very comfortable, beautifully decorated. We loved being within close walking distance to the centre of Settle and so close to the beauty of the Dales. In fact we didn’t travel far to access stunning walks or bike rides. We found the mortice lock on the front door a little tricky and mainly used the back door. A more precise address would be helpful in the listing/confirmation ie including the street name not just the name of the terrace (although the street name was in the more detailed directions it would have helped to have it included in the property address)

  • "Really great cottage with plenty of space and central to Settle."

    Parking was no issue, always a space in front of house. Pre arrival call with owner was great, really helpful with details of stay and very accommodating. I could not fault the accommodation or Settle itself. Very happy

  • "This is a super property, ideal for a family party of eight."

    We really appreciated the kitchen and dining area - we’ve had places in the past where they don’t really allow room for everyone. All the rooms and facilities were immaculate. The location is ideal being a short walk from the town - which is full of interest. It is easy to access walks from the house - even allowing for inclement weather as there is plenty of drying space in the property!

    Thanks for the great feedback and lovely to hear you enjoyed the stay. Property Owner

  • "Great place to stay."

    Wonderful view from rear of cottage. Lovely walks, pubs and places to eat. Station really handy for rail trips. Excellent facilities in cottage. A proper handrail on the steep stairs and perhaps a chair in the bunk room would help. Otherwise brilliant.

  • "Very comfortable & clean."

    Excellent showers, brilliant bath-with-a-view, ample hot water. Very useful to have a dryer as well as a washer. All the rooms (except for the twin bedroom) are bigger than they look in the photos. A very good selection of games/dvds provided - we spent a lot of time around the kitchen table playing 'Don't Panic'. Had a minor issue (DVD player not working) which was sorted immediately by the owner. No problems with on street parking.100% would return.

    Thanks for the feedback and glad you had a good time. We love "Don't Panic" too. Property Owner

    Other houses nearby had benches front and back which would have been good.

    Thanks for the rating. We will look at what we can do about the outdoor seating. Property Owner

    The beds are comfortable and the kitchen is well equipped . The cottage is in a great position, close to the shops cafes and pubs of Settle , but far enough that parking on the street outside the house is not a problem. With a marvellous view , lovely decor and all the facilities you could possibly need for a holiday I don’t hesitate to recommend

    Very clean, very comfortable esp the beds! Fully equipped with everything we needed esp for cooking meals most days. Settle is a beautiful town with a good variety of shops. The local walks and scenery are just stunning, waterfalls, caves and a beautiful river all within 2 or 3 miles. Plus a beautiful train ride to see the viaduct at Ribblehead We are thinking of staying here again next year as we barely scratched the surface of things to do!

  • "Had a great family holiday staying in West View Cottage."

    It was very comfortable for the 6 of us — clean and well equipped. We really appreciated the amazing bathrooms and large Utility Room which was ideal for drying off clothes after some of our rather wet walks ! Also handy for popping into Settle with its shops and great places for tea and coffee. A great base for visiting the Dales.

  • "Enjoyable stay in this property in Settle."

    Easy walking distance into the centre, lots of shops/cafes/eating places. Highly recommend The Golden Lion for an evening meal (make sure you book in advance) Short walk to the Settle railway station too and we had a wonderful ride from Settle to Carlisle - beautiful scenery! May we make a couple of suggestions? The front double bedroom would benefit from a mirror and a wall chart or reminder could be displayed in the utility room to show when bins need putting out for emptying. When we where there both exterior bins were full.

  • "Excellent in most aspects but one important issue for us and we noticed others have mentioned the same issue ."

    There is no handrail on the stairs. This is dangerous for the young , the old and those with mobility difficulties . Also could do with litter bins in bedrooms . Other than these things I would have no hesitation in recommending this beautiful cottage to others .

    Glad you enjoyed the house. Appreciate the suggestion about the handrail and we are getting one fitted in the next few weeks. Property Owner

    Plenty of room for 4 adults and 2 teenagers. Two large bathrooms both with excellent showers and a well equipped kitchen. Located on a really quiet street, we had no problem parking 2 cars, just a 5 minutes walk from the centre of Settle which has everything you need. Co-op, Bakery & Cafe, Pizza takeaway, Fish & Chips, Pubs etc. There is also a lovely Riverside walk. It's perfectly located for easy access to Malham, Clapham, Austwick, Ingleton and the Ribblehead viaduct. Nothing was more than a 25 minute drive away. All in all an excellent week in an excellent location where we felt very much at home.

Nestled in the town of Settle within the beautiful Yorkshire Dales National Park, is this superb old Victorian house.

Inside, the property provides the very best of a modern decor, whilst still retaining some of its original period features such as exposed beams.

Enter into the spacious sitting room where you can curl up with your loved ones and unwind into the evening whilst catching up with your favourite shows, while the gas woodburning stove provides that extra bit of warmth during those winter months.

Walk through to the open-plan kitchen/diner resting towards the rear, housing everything you could need to rustle up a delicious meal for the whole family, to be enjoyed at the dining table over a well-deserved glass of wine.

Upstairs, you will discover four well-presented bedrooms across two floors, with the first-floor offering a king-size and a children's bunk room, whilst the second-floor has a king-size and twin.

While you're in the area, a must-see attraction is the Gordale Scar limestone ravine, which was created during the Ice Ages and has a footpath leading towards Malham Moor, where you can experience the best of both history and scenery.

The Yorkshire Dales National Park is an excellent base for touring the very best of the countryside sites, with stunning and far-reaching views.The thriving market town of Settle is where you can find a wealth of independent shops and supermarkets for those shopping sprees and picking up any last-minute essentials.

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.
