  • "Our stay was lovely."

    Very clean and warm. Beds were very comfortable and swing chair is a lovely touch. The only feedback I would give is that the kitchen could be abit better stocked…a few more dishes, bowls, tea pot, coffee pot etc would be great. And although it is very nice to be able to switch off from technology it would be good to provide free WiFi . Having said that, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and the staff were very friendly and helpful.

  • "The house was really good but the lovely kitchen was very under equipped just 4 plates 4 cups 4 knives and forks etc so while having a two course meal you had to wash up in between courses."

    Also no oven gloves to pull hot trays out of oven a good job we took some of our own tea towels with 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.
