  • "The cottage was lovely and so comfortable we had a wonderful welcome from Pat ..."

    The cottage was lovely and so comfortable we had a wonderful welcome from Pat and John, the wildlife around the cottage was fun to watch with a coffee in the mornings sitting in the garden would highly recommend the cottage as we loved it and will return

  • "A last minute booking at this beautiful cottage and garden."

    Pictures don’t do it justice. Everything we liked. Isolation. Working Farm. Nature and wildlife. Plus the weather was great. We would have stayed for the full week but both come down with a virus and headed home early. Would love to return when the 2nd barn is finished.

  • "Although on a farm unit down a long farm track this is situated next to the owners cottage and is quite isolated."

    The rooms are spacious although the first floor is reached via a narrow staircase. The kitchen is a little spoilt by an old cooker but it works fine. The owners are very friendly and helpful. There is a big garden area for those with a dog.

  • "We rented the property because we were under the impression that the garden was enclosed and therefore ideal for the dog."

    This was not the case. It would be helpful to know that this is sheep country and dogs have to be under strict control. Apart from this the property was lovely and we would be happy to return

  • "We were made very welcome and felt comfortable in the house."

    Everything we needed was there. We liked having lots of towels in the airing cupboard as holiday cottages often only give you a couple. The house was spotlessly clean and there was plenty of room outside for our dog to run about.

    The property is lovely and quiet, nicely decorated with everything you need for a comfortable stay. The garden is a lovely place to sit for breakfast. The owners are very nice, Pat recommend a place to eat where I discovered a dessert called lemon posset. I will hopefully visit again.

  • "The cottage was lovely and in a very quiet location."

    An excellent base for exploring the Yorkshire Dales. Pat and John were warm and welcoming hosts. The cottages was spotless and well furnished. The kitchen was a little too basic for our liking and would benefit from a more modern cooker/fridge freezer, but that’s just our personal preference. There was also a lack of large coffee mugs and glasses suitable for our G & T, but these are only a minor point. A lovely stay. Thank you

    It’s setting was isolated as stated but within a beautiful setting surrounded by uninterrupted views of the Yorkshire Dales. Would highly recommend the cottage if you are looking for a peaceful holiday away from the hustle and bustle. Plenty of walks in the area and just a short distance from smaller villages or the larger town of Settle. Superb hosts too.

  • "Absolutely perfect location."

    Rural, peaceful and idyllic. Just what we wanted and the hosts were lovely. We were greeted upon arrival and just left to do our own thing. Wonderful countryside and the walks around the area are great. The only thing that I would consider in changing would be to update the cooker. Everything else was excellent.

    Fantastic location for us as extremely quiet and private, and being in between the Yorkshire Dales and the Forest of Bowland so lots of walking in those areas. We slept incredibly well and totally chilled out there.

  • "We had a great experience at Woodlands."

    Pat and John were charming hosts who had taken great care in the preparation of the cottage and were a mine of local information. The cottage was thoughtfully decorated and furnished and is situated in a remote and beautiful spot. We would definitely go back there. My only criticism of the experience was that we had previously booked accommodation closer to Skipton and, despite having paid in full, the property was withdrawn by the owners with only 3 weeks to departure. Had we withdrawn at that stage we would have lost our money but the Sykes contract does not penalise the owner in any way for our inconvenience. As it happened things worked out really well as we could not have improved on Woodlands. However the principle remains.

The property

Wigglesworth 3 miles.

A delightful stone-built, semi-detached cottage, next to the owners' home, in a remote location, surrounded by beautiful rolling countryside and just three miles from the pretty village of Wigglesworth.

This charming cottage has been renovated throughout, retaining the character of the original dwelling, and provides ideal accommodation for a peaceful and relaxed countryside break.

Upstairs, the cottage provides two inviting bedrooms and a family bathroom, complete with a separate shower and bath tub for soaking tired legs after exploring this magnificent area.

Downstairs you will find an excellent, spacious living area, complete with a glorious woodburning stove and comfortable seating.

There is a light and airy kitchen, perfect for enjoying breakfast at the table and taking in the tranquil surroundings.

For a more lavish meal, a large dining table is also available in the sitting room.

Outside, table and chairs are provided, set within a beautiful garden.

Nearby Wigglesworth is a small picturesque village with an award-winning pub serving fine ales and food.

With walks from the doorstep and the Yorkshire Dales' Three Peaks just a short drive away, the local area is a walker's dream.

To the west, the largely undiscovered Forest of Bowland Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, offers a wide range of unspoilt landscapes to explore.

The local area has an abundance of caves and waterfalls, while the Settle-Carlisle Railway is famed for being one of the country's most scenic train journeys.

With the Yorkshire Dales and the Lake District within easy reach, this cottage provides a superb holiday base at any time of the year.

About the location


Long Preston 2 miles; Settle 6 miles; Skipton 13 miles.

The Ribblesdale village of Wigglesworth sits on the western edge of North Yorkshire, in the Forest of Bowland, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Wigglesworth is home to The Plough Hotel, serving real ales and excellent food. Two miles away is Long Preston, an attractive Yorkshire Dales village in Malhamdale, which benefits from two excellent pubs with first rate cuisine and 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. Wigglesworth is thirteen miles from Skipton (popularly known as the 'Gateway to the Dales') and six miles from Settle. Settle is a bustling market town with a weekly market, 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 here too. Wigglesworth is a great base.
