  • "Fantastic Cottage, amazing location ."

    ................. everything you need. Great for dog owners as walking on your doorstep, pub stones throw away ... every member of the family enjoyed it, the children loved having a paddle in the river (which is very low) at the end of the garden, the garden is secured in two parts one with access to the river and one with access to a lovely patio area (little sun trap) and hot tub so not worrying about the children or dogs having access to the river..........

  • "The cottage is lovely."

    Stainforth is a sweet little village with lots of walks and many attractions within walking distance. We loved the log burning stove and the sofas were well placed for a cosy night in. Our welcome pack included everything we needed with the bonus of a bottle of Prosecco. Unfortunately we were not able to take advantage of the hot tub due to inclement weather. Would definitely recommend. Prob not suitable for anyone in a wheelchair as there are several steps with different floor levels.

    Excellent location. Great for 2 or 3 couples, but kitchen is not large so dining with more than 6 would be very tight.

    What a lovely surprise to have fresh flowers, a chilled bottle of Prosecco and a few other little essentials waiting for us. Furnished to a high standard, the bedrooms particularly comfortable and so nicely done, but the loveliest part for me was the path down to the river with fairy lights and seating area.....magical. Would highly recommend and hope to visit again. Lovely walks to both local waterfalls which made the weekend.

  • "The cottage was absolutely perfect!"

    All the characterful quirks and beauty just blew us away as soon as we walked in! It fitted around the family perfectly with a downstairs double bedroom and downstairs shower room and toilet which allowed my grandparents a convenient and stress free stay! The location was lovely with the outside stream running through and the nearby walks! A short car ride into settle meant we could pop in the market town and have a wonder yet we were secluded enough to enjoy the surrounding walks and waterfalls! Also had lovely pubs nearby just all round a fantastic holiday!

  • "The cottage was lovely, clean and well presented."

    There was nice touches of little gifts when we arrived. Would highly recommend it. Only feedback is that it could maybe advertise that hot tub only in use between 12pm and 9pm, we fancied a dip in the morning and it was cold! Other than that a highly recommended trip. We will revisit.

    Thank you so much for your feedback, we're glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay at Bridge End Cottage. The hot tub can be used from 9.00am-9.00pm, during these times it will be at the correct temperature. On this occasion it seems as though the settings may have been altered, meaning the water was not quite warm enough. We hope to welcome you back again. Property Owner

    Gorgeous cottage, stunning decor, comfy beds and so cosy, especially with the log burner. Great location in the centre of a quaint village, with fabulous, friendly local pub just next door across the river. Lots of great walks from the door. Idyllic small river/large stream was ideal for little ones to splash about in their wellies. Whilst the lovely hot tub was ideal for the grown ups, especially with a glass of fizz, under the stars next to the babbling stream! Couldn’t recommend enough, we will be back.

    The cottage was comfortable and homely with special touches awaiting our arrival. We had a no TV week (by choice) and enjoyed playing games and doing jigsaws (provided in the cottage) in the evenings. The hot tub was wonderfully relaxing and very popular with all of us. We are a three generation family and there was something for everybody. Highly recommended.

    It makes all the difference! Stainforth is a quiet village and a very friendly community and it suited us perfectly - if visitors are looking for a property in which to party hard and noisily, then this one in this village is probably not for you! We found as guests in the village that we were welcomed - arriving as strangers yet treated like friends. A most relaxing and enjoyable fortnight staying in a lovely cottage. Thank You!

  • "In terms of your tick rating we were quite disappointed with this property."

    We have self catered a lot so have several places to compare it with. The beds were comfy though comfort in super king suffered because of ‘twin’ join. In a general sense the cottage was clean - bathroom, toilets etc and the heating system worked well so warm and cosy. However here is a list of some of the main things we feel let us down Limited kitchen equipment eg no sieve to drain rice, initially no cafetière, no pyrex basins, measuring jug, scales etc. Filthy grill and oven. Guest book comments would suggest this has been the case for sometime! Impossible access to fridge/freezer, grill and oven once people are seated at the table Kitchen table and seating only really caters for six people General impression of kitchen was that it needed revamping and reorganising Extractor fan in downstairs loo blew out dirty fluff Loo brushes and holders needed renewing Upstairs shower screen leaked badly over floor Inadequate storage for clothing. Ridiculous coathangers. Looked as though they were a job lot from Mothercare . Could not hang adult trousers on them. Television wouldn’t work because the aerial socket was broken Generally we felt the cottage looked ‘tired’ and worn and needed a redo especially as we stayed at the beginning of the season the standard was not good. We felt it was ok if you wanted to drink wine (overflowing with wine glasses!), use the hot tub and eat at the pub, not if you were serious about ‘self catering’. By the way, the hot tub was great.

  • "Cottage was beautiful with great facilities and really comfortable and interior was of a high standard."

    Th only slightly negative comment is the wood fired hot tub wasn’t warm enough until late Saturday and took 3 bags of logs to heat and maintain. Once it was going it was a lovely place to relax. Great walks from the door and area had so much to offer. Well worth a visit and ideal cottage and location for a family catch up.

  • "Lovely cottage for my birthday weekend away."

    Weather was horrible and so we definitely made the most of the accommodation! Beds were very comfortable and the living space was perfect for socialising. Paul and Lianne were wonderful hosts and looked after us well. Only slight issue was that we struggled to get the hot tub to a suitable temperature (too cold and then too hot), but this certainly didn’t spoil our weekend. The cottage is also in an excellent location for exploring the local area. We would definitely stay here again!

  • "Re booking on phone."

    All very polite and easy. However I rang to ask about maps and local info, which your email says are available via your App- and the person I spoke to had no idea what I was talking about and said I could Google the info. I know I can Google but it did say I could get the info from you. Then the person said I was going to a lovely property (which was indeed the case!) and that this property did not require a Good Housekeeping Bond (which was incorrect as it did).

    Great location, very comfortable and very well equipped. 10/10! The only two tiny nice to have’s that I’d suggest would be some sort of lighting around the hot tub, even something as subtle as battery operated fairy lights, as it’s very at the bottom of the garden....and faster internet speed, but again, just a suggestion, not a criticism. Other than those two very small points, this cottage is superb and is a credit to the owner.

The property

This first-class cottage is situated in the picturesque village of Stainforth, within the Yorkshire Dales National Park.

Formerly the Old Stainforth Post Office, the property is steeped in history, being situated on land which was once the old river crossing, used for centuries when people travelled via horseback from York to Lancaster.

The property has been expertly renovated to provide luxury accommodation, exuding style and character throughout and tastefully showcasing original features such as beams and the traditional internal stone work.

Set over two floors, this cottage offers four bedrooms including a super king-size double master bedroom, a king-size double, a double and a ground floor king-size room, offering flexible sleeping accommodation, ideal for families or a group of friends looking to sample the many attractions of this magnificent area.

There's also two bathrooms, comprising a first floor family bathroom with a waterfall shower and a ground floor additional shower room, making the property suitable for the less mobile.

Downstairs you will be met with a fabulous sitting room featuring a woodburning stove and a well-equipped kitchen diner.

Your stay in the Dales is one with the utmost comfort and style.

Outside the beautiful garden backs on to the river, providing the perfect space to sit out, catching the sun all day and a fire pit is provided for the evening BBQ.

The icing on the cake is found in the hydrotherapy massage hot tub.

New for summer 2019 and located just next to the river, it is perfect for relaxing with a luxurious soak and letting lifes troubles drift away.

Situated in the centre of the charming Dales village of Stainforth, Bridge End Cottage is in an enviable position with an excellent family Pub on the opposite side of bridge and a superb cafe within a five minutes walk.

A short 5 minute drive also brings you to the market town of Settle offering fantastic shops, pubs and restaurants.

Stunning countryside can be enjoyed from the doorstep with the stunning Stainforth Foss and Catrigg Force found within a ten minutes walk as well as the Pennine Bridleway close by.

For the more adventurous the famous Yorkshire Dales' Three Peaks are not to be missed and most set off points can be found within fifteen minutes’ drive.

Nearby attractions include the bustling market town of Skipton and the Settle-Carlisle Railway line, renowned for being one of the most scenic railway routes in Britain.

With the Dales and the Lakes within easy touring distance, this is a stunning holiday destination at any time of the year.

About the location


Settle 2.5 miles; Giggleswick 2.5 miles.

Stainforth is a charming village with a thriving community life in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales National Park. Stone-built traditional cottages, narrow lanes, the village church and the quaint old pub all go together to make this one of the prettiest villages in the shire of Ribblesdale. Nearby are the famous Stainforth Foss and the medieval Packhorse Bridge, beloved by Sir Edward Elgar. The village is about three miles from Settle, a bustling market town with excellent shopping facilities, a good selection of restaurants and a thriving market day, when the square is filled with stalls offering a wide range of goods. The Settle-Carlisle Railway, the most scenic in England features the occasional steam train, and the run across the Ribblehead viaduct with its twenty-four arches is an experience not to be missed. An excellent area for walkers with the Three Peaks nearby, and a good base for touring the Dales, while the Lake District can be reached in less than an hour.
