  • "What a gorgeous hidden gem this cottage is."

    Very comfortable and cosy, perfect for a couple. The cottage was spotlessly clean and Bryan had even put some daffodils in a vase! It was a perfect location to explore surrounding areas or just to chill out and relax. We thoroughly enjoyed every moment. Highly recommended.

  • "The cottage is comfortable and well placed for many good walks, both from the cottage and within easy travelling distance by car, though the access onto the main road is a little hair-raising."

    The facilities are well suited for two people, the instructions for the use of the cottage are clear, and were explained by the friendly owner who lives next door, and came in to go through them. Just a couple of points: as we had travelled quite a long way a welcome pack would have been well received (if only a small carton of milk and a couple of sachets of tea and coffee) We also found the nearby main road too noisy with the heavy passing traffic to be able to sit out in peace. Although there is wonderful scenary in the surrounding countryside, there are no views from the property. We should also perhaps mention that the cotttage is opposite a double garage that has an overnight security light that is constantly lit - soemtimes flashes - and shines directly into the bedroom. (This garage doesn't belong to the owner, so the disturbance is no fault of his, though). Still, all in all, we had good weather and some fabulous walks.

    The pictures do not do it justice. Carn cottage is very sweet and quaint, with ample cooking equipment to rustle up a delicious meal in the evenings. We stayed for new years and had a fantastic time. After Brian showed us how to start the traditional coal fire, he left us to it making sure that we knew where he was if we needed anything. The sitting room upstairs lends itself to a stunning view of the countryside and the bedroom downstairs is really comfortable and cozy. There is a folder in the cottage full of walks if you wish to explore and some games (including scrabble) if you want a fun night in. As for the local area, well there are two pubs in walking distance, 'The Maypole inn' and 'The Boars head' for meals and coffee if you do not fancy cooking, if you do, there is a well stocked local post office which sells fresh eggs, sausages, breakfast cereals amongst other things just along the road. For a more extensive shop, it is best to take a short drive to the co-op in Settle. We loved it here and will be returning.

    Long Preston - while not on the tourist trail itself - is a very pleasant village (two pubs serving food; one corner shop providing basic essentials such as bread and milk as well as acting as the post office) that served as an excellent base for exploring the south west side of the Yorkshire Dales. Lots to see and do (e.g. the market town of Settle, Ingleborough caves, Skipton Castle, Ingleton waterfall trail, Settle - Carlisle Railway over the Ribblehead Viaduct, etc. as well as innumerable walks) all within a 25 minute drive from the cottage and enabling the visitor to have as relaxing or strenuous a holiday as desired. Parking directly outside the cottage would be a bit tricky if you have a car any bigger than a Ford Focus-sized vehicle (we don't, so not a problem for us).

About the location


Settle 4 miles; Malham 4 miles; Skipton 12 miles.

Long Preston is an attractive Yorkshire Dales village in Ribblesdale, twelve miles from Skipton (popularly known as the 'Gateway to the Dales'), four miles from Settle. To the north, the landscape rises to the fells, moors and picturesque valleys of the Dales; to the south are the wetlands of the Ribble Valley which, in turn, sweep upward to the magnificent wilderness of Bowland. The village benefits from several large, tree lined, village greens, with footpaths leading direct to the surrounding hills, and it also boasts two excellent pubs with first rate cuisine. The railway station on the edge of the village provides access to the famous Settle-Carlisle Railway line which crosses some of the most beautiful and inspiring upland scenery in the country. Nearby Settle is a bustling market town with a weekly market, the centre being dominated by the Shambles, an historic 3-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.
