  • "Lovely, spacious property, well equipped and was in a great location for the things that we wanted to do during our holiday."

    The view out the back was stunning and the welcome hamper with bits for our children was a lovely touch (though the crackers were out of date!). The downsides for us were the amount of dog hairs everywhere, our clothes were literally covered constantly; the cleanliness - it was obvious a quick clean rather than a good clean had been done, hence the issues with the dog hairs, under the dining table hadn't been swept for example, and there was all manner of stuff splattered all down the front of every cabinet and drawer in the kitchen and up the tiles. So much so I had to try and clean it a bit so our young children could touch anything. And finally the heating - the upstairs was like an oven and the downstairs like the arctic when the heating was on (as only 2 radiators for the whole of downstairs), so take lots of layers if staying in colder months.

    Dear Visitor I am very sorry that there were some issues with the cleanliness of the house. We take this very seriously and have not had these issues before. I will make sure these are addressed and do not happen again. I am very pleased you loved the location and the property itself, we are very proud of our little cottage in the Dales. Property Owner

  • "Thank you for another stay in your lovely cottage."

    It is warm and comfortable, well equipped and positioned. And then, there is that fabulous view from the dining room window, we didn't tier of just sitting and watching the livestock up on the fells. I have no doubt that we will be back for the hat-trick

  • "Really lovely holiday home, very central to settle town centre."

    We found the house very comfortable for 4 adults and a dog, with secure seating area outside and beautiful views. Thoughtful welcome pack with a range of goodies was appreciated. The house had everything we needed. We will definitely be back.

  • "Perfect for a group of 6 adults with plenty of space to relax and socialise ."

    A great base for access to lots of walks to suit all abilities. Immaculately clean throughout, there are two very spacious bedrooms, however the third double bedroom is small with no wardrobes and very little space to move around - but the bed was very comfortable! The kitchen is well equipped should you wish to cook - but there are also lots of excellent restaurants within easy walking distance catering for all tastes. (We particularly enjoyed a visit to Darlings Thai restaurant/takeaway.) The hot water supply was limited and also inconsistent.(Sometimes there was hot water first thing in the morning, but on other days there seemed to only be hot water to one of the bathrooms) The rear yard area is pleasant and nicely furnished making it a nice place to sit out and admire the view.

  • "Ribblesdale cottage was spotlessly clean and in a perfect position for the town and also the surrounding area."

    The beds were really comfortable, the showers were lovely and warm and the kitchen was perfectly equipped. The only thing to mention is that the garden is more of a yard which is not a problem unless you have a dog that likes grass! All in all we would definitely reccomend this property.

  • "Providing basic essentials such as milk, butter etc and additional touches such as providing snacks & a bottle of wine is a nice touch and very much appreciated."

    At first I was worried if the cottage would be ok for 6 adults however as it’s spread over 3 floors and has 2 bathrooms plus the dining area was easily big enough for our group to eat & socialise we found it worked very well. The living room also provided another relaxing space. The cottage’s good location in the town along easy access to shops, pubs & restaurants plus it’s location within easy reach of all the walks in the area meant we had a really nice time here and would definitely recommend and come again.

  • "We loved our stay at Ribblesdale Cottage."

    The kitchen is well stocked with everything you need should you wish to cook and lovely touch of providing teabags, milk, butter as well some sweet treats and wine. The cottage is comfortable with stunning views out the back and very comfortable beds. Settle town centre and Train station is literally a 5 minute walk. I would definitely recommend staying here, we will book again if we are ever in the area again.

The property

Sitting in the picture-postcard town of Settle in North Yorkshire is this, mid-terrace cottage, Ribblesdale Cottage.

A wonderful base for a family of seven, Ribblesdale Cottage sits on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales National Park, whilst also being within easy reach of the Forest of Bowland Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and the Lake District National Park.

The delightful dwelling rests near a train station, however, there is also on-street parking available, for added convenience.

Upon arrival, make your way inside to find a well-presented kitchen/diner, where wooden-topped units offer plenty of food preparation space whilst housing a range of appliances that will please any budding chef; continue up one step to find the dining area, which easily seats all the group whilst offering views of the country and a nearby rugby pitch.

Move across the ground floor to find a charming sitting room that is ideal for a post-dinner sit-down, where you can watch a show with the family on the TV or curl up with an entertaining book.

When the day draws to a close, head upstairs to find two tastefully furnished bedrooms on the first floor, with one being a compact double enjoying further views over Settle and the surrounding country and the other being a family room featuring a double, single and a TV; climb the stairs again to discover an attic bedroom offering a double, whilst being bathed in light by skylight windows and adjoining a handy en-suite shower room.

The bedrooms on the first floor additionally enjoy access to a family bathroom, where you can soak up in the bath after a day of walking or cycling.

The enclosed back patio is a fabulous spot that offers ample seating, so you can enjoy dining alfresco amongst your quaint surroundings.

Settle not only features an array of amenities, including the renowned Golden Lion pub, but offers tours around the brilliant Museum of North Craven Life, an esteemed golf club, as well as walking trails leading into the Yorkshire Dales National Park, where hikers can come across the caves of Victoria and Jubilee, along with the famed Scaleber Force Waterfall.

Spend more time in the Yorkshire Dales National Park and travel to Malham for a day out filled with the sights of Malham Cove, Janet's Foss and Gordale Scar; walk a little further out of Malham towards Malham Tarn Estate, where plenty of cycling can be enjoyed throughout the lakeside farms and meadows.

The market town of Skipton makes for a fantastic day out for all the family, with Skipton Castle immersing you in local history, the Raven Tree Top Adventure offering a chance at exploring a high ropes course and the Skipton Waterways providing lovely strolls throughout the town.

For more fun in the Dales, be sure to travel to Grassington, Ingleton and Chapel-le-Dale, or venture a little further afield to discover the Cumbrian delight of Kendal.

Spend some quality time away with your loved ones at Ribblesdale Cottage.

The bustling market town of Settle lies at the south west rim of the Yorkshire Dales National Park, nestled beside the largest outcrop of limestone in Britain - a region of scars, cliffs, caves and potholes - amongst some of the most picturesque scenery in North Yorkshire. Tuesday is market day in Settle, when the square is filled with stalls offering a wide variety of crafts and goods. The market place is surrounded by local businesses, 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 and a public swimming pool. The Victoria Hall has entertainment and other activities such as folk nights throughout the year. The famous Settle-Carlisle Railway crosses some of the most beautiful and inspiring upland scenery in the country. Natural attractions such as Malham Cove and Gordale Scar are within easy reach, as are the nearby Dales towns of Skipton and Malham. Settle is in the midst of excellent walking country and is a good base for touring the Dales, the Lake District and the Forest of Bowland.
