“Half term break”

Excellent location, facilities and equipment for 7 of us who stayed. The basement games room was a bonus for my 9year old grandson. Local cafes , take a ways and swimming pool were all excellent. The location is ideal for the three peaks, settle to Carlisle railway ( though at moment due to land slip it is best to have a return ticket to Appleby) and local walks.
Particularly good value for post half term.

“Perfect Stay”

My sister rented this cottage on line for the family. She, my brother, and myself were travelling to Settle to return my father's ashes to the family plot. We took the cottage for a week so we could use it as a base to visit relatives. It was Amazing! Very well appointed with all the mod cons, and immaculate. Very comfortable and the view from the front to the River Ribble is beautiful. There is even a games room in the basement! The parking is a bit tricky to find since it is across the lane from the back gate of the cottage and accessed from the main road, but otherwise this was an almost perfect choice for us. Even more so when my Aunt Dorothy found an old class photograph from Giggleswick School dated 1959. In it she found her late husband, Peter and his younger brother Rodney sitting front and centre! Wow.

“Great views in a great location”
Reviewed 12 October 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Went here for a week with friends. The cottage is dog friendly and there are lots of lovely dog walks nearby. It is just a short walk to Settle where there is a good choice of pubs and restaurants, some of which welcome dogs.
The cottage has been very tastefully decorated and is extremely comfortable.

“Wonderful house in a great location”

My family (2 adults & 3 children 6 & under) stayed here for a week in the Easter holidays and it was just lovely. The house is stunning, incredibly comfortable and well equipped. We were lucky enough to have fantastic weather, but if you were stuck indoors or just wanted some quiet time there are many (many!) games, several dvds & books and also a pool table & dart board to keep you occupied!

The house is in easy strolling distance from Settle centre which is a lovely town in itself but also the gateway by car or even better by train to some of the most beautiful parts of the country. Plenty to do for everyone.

Such a lovely place to stay for our holiday, we would love to return.
