    On our arrival we were met by Julia the owner who showed us everything we needed to know along with a lovely welcome hamper which was much appreciated. We found the house to be an excellent size and more than big enough for the 9 of us staying (6 adults and 3 children) The kitchen has everything you need and more and the games room is enjoyable for all ages (we had ages 2-64) The dining table fits everyone around easily for dinner or games. The family bedroom is huge (3 single beds) and great for the children to play in. The master bedroom with walk in wardrobe and en suite is beautiful, the other 2 doubles are of standard size with a small twin too. The garden is a great size for the children to play on, unfortunately the weather was awful for our stay so didn't get to use the play equipment or the sand pit but I can imagine it been lovely in spring/summer! The use of 2 fridges Definately helps with so many people arriving for a week with a freezer too. Lots of cupboard space in the kitchen and wardrobe space in the bedrooms. We took a number of games to play but the house already has lots in there for you to borrow along with books and DVDs. The local village (long Preston) is about 2 miles away (not really walkable with small children) has a small post office with a really well stocked food store if you run out of anything! Skipton was only about a 30 min drive and settle about 15 mins. We would highly recommend not only the house but the service received by Julia and her family.

About the location


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

Long Preston is an attractive Yorkshire Dales village in Malhamdale, 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.
