  • "Had a great stay at Windyridge."

    Well equipped and comfortable. Has everything you need. Great location with shops, pubs and restaurants all within walking distance. A list of places where dogs can be off lead would be helpful. There are lots of good walks nearby but dogs must be on lead due to livestock nearby. Would definitely stay here again.

  • "Fantastic property which is very grand."

    A great stay for two families. We were comfy and warm in a very cold spell. The property is very well located for the centre of Settle. Had a wonderful meal in the Golden Lion which is around 3 minutes walk away. Kitchen is huge and has everything that you need. The shower was lovely and the bath was really nice to relax in at the end of a busy day. Not far to drive to incredible walks which everyone enjoyed. Only points to note were that one of the mattresses was very soft and uncomfortable and there could be a little more attention to the cleaning (some large cobwebs and some Christmas decorations up in mid-January).

  • "The house was wonderful."

    It was even better than we anticipated. It is spacious (there were 8 of us), comfortable and warm. The kitchen is great for a family breakfast, the lounge is perfect for relaxing and we had a fantastic New Years Eve socialising in the dining room. We would thoroughly recommend Sykes and this house

    Windyridge was superb very comfortable everything we needed, lots of kitchen equipment , lovely and warm and plenty of space. We ate in a couple of nights and ate out the other two at the local hostelrys. Caught the train to Kirkby Stephen and had a lovely day there. Would definitely recommend Windyridge.

    Comfortable beds. Well equipped kitchen. Garden not like photograph, smaller and no stream visible. Need more toilet rolls for people staying a week Good parking for 2 cars. Great that dogs can stay. Would come back.

  • "What a fabulous property."

    We were all sad to leave and return to our own humble abodes. We were there to celebrate a 60th wedding anniversary so made good use of the formal dining room which the anniversary couple though was great. Well equipped kitchen. Lovely comfy beds Great bathroom facilities. We all loved the garden but on our stay it was too wet to enjoy it unfortunately. The two dogs had a good sniff around though The house is perfectly situated with everything a short walk away. We were hopefully going to rebook for October but are not surprised it’s all full. Definitely be back though. The only thing I would maybe suggest is a sheet or notebook with a little bit of history about the house if any is known. We found it intriguing and would have loved to have found out about any previous residents and all those clocks

  • "Fabulous place and very comfortable."

    We were in Settle for a wedding so an ironing board would have been useful. We had traveled from Spain and South Africa and then from Nottingham so we were glad of the welcome scones etc. my mother is 86 so grab rails for the shower would have made it easier. Overall we had a brilliant time.

  • "This is an exceptional property very well equipped, filled with beautiful antiques and comfortable with plenty of room."

    The location in the town was very convenient to shops, pubs and the train. We travelled from Canada and Denmark and planned a 3 generation family vacation. We decided not to use a car but only the train and bus and this worked out fine. In addition we were able to do several day walks in the immediate area. Overall rating is 10 out of 10. The owner of the property came over to answer some questions as well as fix a minor problem and could not have been more welcoming.

  • "Beautiful period property, sympathetically furnished but with a lovely contemporary kitchen."

    In a great location and easy to find. The garden is fully enclosed so great for our dog to have a play in. Settle is a lovely little town with individual shops and great pubs. A walk by the river to spot the Dippers and trout is a must for nature lovers. Would highly recommend Windyridge and would love to revisit again one day.

    We felt like we had walked straight into a Jane Austen novel, but with modern conveniences. Pure luxury yet at the same time very homely. Beautifully furnished and so light spacious and warm. We loved the real fire. Great showers and spacious bedrooms. We loved the location- right in the middle of Settle but quiet at the weekend.

  • "We have booked a number of cottages from your organisation and have always been very pleased with them."

    Sadly, we cannot say the same about Windyridge. While the house is lovely (though it is middle and not end terrace as described) it certainly falls short of your customary standards as follows: There is no mop nor long-handled brush to clean the kitchen floor (which has been left very stained and marked by previous occupiers) and which as walkers we feel necessary. There are also stains on the landing carpet which were there when we arrived. The curtains in the sitting room are hanging off the curtain rails and give the room a very uncared for look. It would be impossible to prepare and cook a meal for eight as there is only one small chopping board which has to serve as a bread board and a board for preparing veg. Nor are there any bowls for making dishes nor for serving food. While there is a lot of crockery none of it can safely go in a microwave. There is only one bath mat for two bathrooms and the basin in the bathroom has a faulty plug and a loose tap. There were no additional toilet rolls. There is no ‘book of words’ giving information about the property and surrounding area. It is our experience that owners usually leave several leaflets and recommendations to help their visitors enjoy the local area.

  • "A beautiful, spacious house, ideally placed in a great location."

    The house was large enough to comfortably accommodate two families and had a plentiful supply of kitchen equipment. Happy to leave both cars parked undisturbed all week as the shops and amenities were on our doorstep, although the house and gardens were peaceful and didn't feel like they were so close to a bustling town. Lots of great walks, straight from the town centre and some excellent places to eat, the Golden Lion is a must! I'd happily visit again and again...

The property

Tucked away in the market town of Settle, North Yorkshire is this impressive, mid-terrace Georgian townhouse, Windyridge.

Sitting on the doorstep into the Yorkshire Dales National Park, this beautiful property has four bedrooms sleeping eight guests with an enclosed, private garden, nearby amenities, and everything you need for a self-catering holiday.

Find off-road and roadside parking at the rear to unpack and explore your home-from-home; you'll find antique artwork and furniture throughout for a truly unique holiday setting!

The kitchen is fully equipped with contemporary facilities, including a large range cooker, microwave, Belfast sink and dishwasher, alongside a dining table for eight to keep the designated chef company.

A larger, formal dining room is nearby with vintage furnishings, painted portraits, and a stunning open fire to set the scene while you toast to your retreat over a delicious supper.

Settle into the sitting room just across the hall with its antique Grandfather clock, a large window bathing the space in light, and three sumptuous sofas set in front of another open fire; unwind with a good book in hand or catch your favourite shows on the TV.

On summer evenings, why not carry a picnic out to your secluded garden?

It's set just across a lane to the rear with stone steps leading up to a well-kept garden with a pond and furniture to dine under the stars.

After hiking through the Yorkshire Dales, chuck muddy walking gear into the utility's washing machine and freshen up in the ground-floor shower room, complete with a spacious walk-in shower and heated towel rail.

Head upstairs to find a large bathroom with a roll-top bath and shower over if you're in need of a relaxing soak among the bubbles!

Each bedroom at Windyridge retains the cottage's Georgian character with antique furnishings, while promising a homely space to unwind after the day's adventures; choose between two king-size, one double, and a twin, all with plenty of storage space for your belongings.

Start your morning with a stroll around Settle which hosts The Museum of North Craven Life and the historic Settle station water tower, along with traditional pubs, a variety of restaurants, and convenience stores if you prefer to cook at Windyridge!

Pack your hiking boots and head into the Yorkshire Dales for romantic vistas, walkways, caves, and rustic villages; Scaleber Force Waterfall, Stainforth Force and Malham Cove are just some of the nearby attractions waiting to be explored!

The market town of Grassington is a good starting point with a visitor's centre, Folk Museum, and plenty of walking trails leading you into unspoilt scenery.

Wildlife lovers can visit the picturesque village of Malham for an idyllic woodland trail leading you to Janet's Foss and natural pool, Gordale Scar, and Malham National Nature Reserve.

Further south lies the market town of Skipton with its impressive, medieval castle where guests can explore 12th-century dungeons and Skipton Castle Woods, followed by lunch at The Castle Inn, or why not hike Skipton Moor?

If you're looking to venture further afield, Kendal is within driving distance on the edge of the Lake District; explore the Quaker Tapestry Museum, the hilltop ruins of Kendal Castle, and pick up some classic Kendal mint cake.

However, you spend your holiday, choose Windyridge for an elegant, Georgian townhouse in the Yorkshire Dales.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £450.

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.
