  • "Fabulous spaciuos cottage with everything you need and more!"

    We were a party of seven with ages ranging from 24 - 81. Plenty of room for us all with flexibility with sleeping arrangements with the sofabed in the dining room. Beds comfy, with plenty of pillows and towels. Hot tub was lovely and warm with bench around the outside and lights in it - and more towels and robes available to use. Cottage in a great location with lots of walks on the doorstep and not too far from nearest shops. The kitchen had everything you could possibly need for cooking for yourself including oil, salt, pepper, kitchen roll and lots of storage for your supplies. Sofas and cushions comfy and wi-fi and tvs worked well. We had three cars and it was a bit of a tight squeeze to park them all in the dedicated parking for the cottage but a neighbour at the back said we could park one vehicle at the back of the house so we did. The fires were lovely with plenty of coal and wood - definately a highlight to come back to after out November daily jaunts. Heating warmed the other rooms well. Lots of hooks for coats and large shoe tack for walking boots, etc. Only small thing property needs is a mirror in each bedroom. We would all recommend Old Hall Cottage as a great place to stay!

    Kitchen floor was a bit sticky around the sink area. We couldn’t locate a mop. Loads of cupboard space throughout the building. Car parking is good. Maybe think about electric car charging point? Hot tub lid was not secured when we arrived. We only found the attachment points for the security straps at ground level at the end of the stay. In the event I don’t think the chance of our three year old lifting the lid was high. All in all very good venue for family with children

  • "Fabulous Christmas holiday."

    Old Hall Cottage is a wonderful farmhouse style property nestling in the lovely Ribble Valley near the pretty market town of Settle. Everything was perfect for us except the weather and we have no hesitation in recommending this property!

    Thank you for this very positive feed back and I hope staying at Old Hall Cottage made a family Christmas very happy and we hope to see you visit us again. Wishing you and yours a healthy and peaceful 2023. Kind regards Janet Property Owner

  • "Old Hall Cottage is a lovely place to stay."

    There was plenty of room for all 6 of us. The beds were very comfortable and the kitchen was well equipped. We particularly enjoyed the walks from the door and Settle itself was in easy walking distance down the river. We enjoyed the hot tub in the evening and Janet came every morning to check it was ok. All in all a lovely autumn break.

    The lady who owns it was very helpful, she even apologized for the bad weather, although it wasn't bad every day!! I wasn't bothered about the hot tub, but once I went in I loved it!! Will recommend it whole heartedly & hope to go again next year

    It was very comfortable with plenty of room for a family of 8. The kitchen was large and well equipped, and it was nice to have the hot tub. Overall we had a great holiday and would certainly consider booking again.

  • "Our family enjoyed a great holiday in this lovely cottage."

    The property is spacious, has a excellent kitchen, the beds are very comfortable and there’s a hot tub. The location is very peaceful but only minutes away from Settle. Janet, our host, was very responsive. On a particularly hot day we mentioned that a parasol would be appreciated, one was delivered within the hour. Excellent customer care!

  • "The day we arrived a very heavy wooden door to the room where four young children were to sleep was hanging off its top hinge."

    We reported it and nothing happened. We reported it to another family member who said that the previous renters had complained. Two pathetic attempts at repair later they left the door wedged so the children had to sleep with their door open - if that door had fallen on a child they could have been killed. Appalling attitude. No sky T.V. No DVDs. No games. No welcome pack. At least there were plenty of loo rolls and kitchen roll, and they provided a bbq suitable for cooking for two - not much use for a large family so we left it.

  • "We had a great holiday."

    The cottage was great and in a good spot to explore the area. Hot tub was great and used every day. Kitchen was lovely and well equipped. Car parking was good and the garden was very nice. The only downside was only having one toilet upstairs and having to go downstairs in the night so as not to wake up the people in the bedroom next to the toilet. Overall though we had a great time and would recommend.

    The cottage is lovely and spacious with fantastic views. It's an ideal location for those wanting to explore the Dales with some great local walks on the doorstep. It is also only a short drive to Settle. We were a group of 5 and there was plenty of space for everyone. Janet was a great host and checked in that everything was okay. We also arrived to find that the log burner had been lit for us which was much-appreciated on a rainy December evening! The hot tub was a massive hit with everyone and we used it throughout our stay. Overall we had a lovely relaxing break and I would definitely book again.

  • "The Cottage is great for a big group, plenty of space and a beautiful location."

    Our main issues were that although there were 2 showers, there was only 1 toilet which proved difficult with 9 guests. The kitchen was also not equipped with some basic things e.g salt, pepper, oil, coffee, tea etc which would have been a nice touch. There was also no freezer and there was a tumble dryer but no washing machine. Overall, we would visit again but as a smaller group as the sofa bed was very uncomfortable for 2 of the guests.

    Thank you for leaving feedback, I'm glad you enjoyed the location and space you had at the property. On reviewing your feedback i would like to note we do have an additional downstairs toilet next to the utility room, which also has a freezer and washing machine. the utility room is located next to the kitchen accessible through a door. Please note, the sofa bed is only suitable for 1 person. All our condiments etc have been removed as per the covid-19 guidelines, I hope you can understand. Thanks again for taking the time to write in and leave feedback for us. The Owners Property Owner

  • "A lovely big cottage, we were 3 adults, 3 older teenagers and a tweenie."

    The arrangement of rooms was perfect to give everyone space whilst also allowing everyone to be together for meals and relaxing. The downstairs toilet alleviated any issues with sharing the upstairs bathroom and the separate shower room was great, both showers worked well when in use simultaneously. The kitchen was very well equipped. Janet was a great host, she checks the hot tub regularly but was not intrusive. We had a great time here during a heatwave, the garden had plenty of shade and hot tub is great. We also experienced 2 days of rain, a lot of which we stayed inside for. The cottage was well up for the demands this placed on it. Views are fantastic with lots of great walks locally. Will hopefully return as the family loved being together in the cottage.

    Owner was friendly. On our first night we left a message for her that there was no sieve, colander or (critically) coffee pot. We were very impressed when she responded by delivering those items the next morning. We enjoyed our stay very much. There were 3 issues which would have improved our stay if they had been addressed before we arrived - provide sharp kitchen knives, improve heating in the kitchen/living room (the wood burner was only just adequate when going full blast), improve the walk-in shower (the tray filled with water in 2 minutes as the drain was very slow/blocked, and when first turned on water projected over the enclosure wetting towels and clothes)

The property

Settle 0.5 miles.

This delightful semi-detached, stone-built coachman's cottage is located in beautiful rolling countryside in the small hamlet of Stackhouse, just half a mile from the market town of Settle.

Situated in its own spacious grounds, the house is located in a wonderful countryside location with superb long distance views and lovely walking opportunities along the River Ribble.

A fabulous rural retreat for large families or groups looking to get away from it all and enjoy the magnificent countryside, the lovely fresh air and the opportunity to spend time in a first-class holiday home.

All individually styled, combining a hint of both the modern with the more traditional, the cottage has a spacious bespoke kitchen leading through into an open plan sitting room with cosy woodburning stove.

A perfect place to spend time together preparing sumptuous meals, relaxing by the warming fire, catching up on the latest news and planning the next walk.

A separate dining room with a welcoming open fire can also be used as a snug or turned into a ground floor bedroom, a great addition to this lovely cottage.

With underfloor heating from the eco-friendly solar panels, guests are provided with that little something extra for their well-deserved break.

Upstairs there are four bedrooms, with two nicely set out doubles, a family room with flexible sleeping arrangements and a useful single room.

The bathroom is modern and very stylish, and there is a useful cloakroom on the ground floor.

Outside is a superb 'soft tub' providing guests with an ideal place to relax in the soothing waters and enjoy the views across the spacious lawns and the surrounding meadowland.

Good cycle routes are available from the doorstep along quiet lanes and the ride up to Austwick and Horton in Ribblesdale is a particular local favourite.

The challenge of the Three Peaks is just a short drive away, not for the faint hearted but certainly a rewarding achievement for those of the more energetic persuasion.

Nearby Settle and Giggleswick are a real delight with good old fashioned pubs, excellent cafes, a good range of restaurants, a weekly market, a small but very interesting golf course and the renowned Giggleswick School.

The Courtyard on the edge of the town offers a great place to visit with furniture makers, award-winning cheeses and lots more.

For train lovers access to the famous Settle-Carlisle Railway line is on the doorstep and well worth a ride through some of the most scenic places in the country.

Both Skipton and the Lake District are both under an hour's drive away, making this cottage a delightful place to be whatever the time of year.

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.
