Region: From heather-clad moors and limestone scars, to market towns and the steady pace of country life - the sublime Dales await you! Where else in Britain is it as satisfying to sit and do nothing as it is to explore the numerous pursuits on offer?
Town: Set below a limestone scar in the Craven Fault, the lovely Ribblesdale village of Giggleswick is just across the river from the bustling market town of Settle. With a variety of traditional houses and cottages, many of which date back to the 17th Century as the 'date stones' over their doorways will confirm, this charming village is still centred around the beautiful St Alkelda's church, a 12th Century construction, and the famous domed chapel at Giggleswick School. With a handful of shops and pubs, the village provides the bare essentials but for a wider range of amenities visitors should take a trip to nearby Settle, which is within easy walking distance. The town of Ingleton is also close by and is worth visiting for its splendid waterfall walk.
Additional amenities include: high chair, cooker.Read more

A very beautiful idyllic country cottage. It is perfectly situated with amazing views. A very warm, comfortable and homely cottage. We will surely be returning for another stay.

Beautiful location, breathtaking views, very well equipped and spacious property.
Two minor niggles that may seem unimportant in the summer but become more important in inclement weather. Firstly the tumble dryer doesn't work, which is frustrating and secondly for a cottage that sleeps at least 6 people, and especially when the tumble dryer doesn't work, you need more drying facilities than one small heated towel rail in the downstairs cloakroom. This is especially important in wet weather when pets are staying and their coats/towels etc need drying.
Other than that lovely cottage.
lovely cottage in lovely location

The cottage was located ideally for walking from the door step and for exploring the surrounding area. The cottage was well furnished and comfortable however there were not enough seats in the living room for the number of people the property could accomodate. The fire in the living room was lovely in the evening and both of us and our dogs had a lovely relaxing week.

This was our family 'Christmas' get together as due to circumstances we were unable to celebrate in December. We have visited many self catering Properites before but the facilities, equipment and comfort at this cottage was the best. We managed to cook a full Christmas lunch ! Which in someone Else's kitchen as you can Imagne does not always go well, but our every need was catered for. It was in a beautiful, peaceful setting and was relaxing for all
Wonderful weekend away at Rowan House....

Our annual Christmas trip with friends this year was at Rowan House. What a great choice!!! the location was to die for, with breathtaking views from the house, the house itself has a private garden which, lucky for the kids, was covered in snow and provided great entertainment. The house was lovely, very warm and well-equipped, the nearby village of Giggleswick was adorable and i would definately love a return visit....

Rowan House is a spacious and well equipped holiday home in a magnificent setting, out in the countryside, but with all the amenities of a true market town within 5 minutes drive. The owners are only the other side of the large garden and very helpful with any problems that arise.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay there and look forward to going again before too long.Even the weather was reasonable!
The only down side was that we found the suite in the lounge uncomfortable.
Great location for a holiday in the Dales

The cottage is spacious and well equipped. The open
fire is a great focal point of the living room, but
even without it the house was always warm and
homely, even on chilly October evenings.
Access to the Dales for walking is great -
literally cross the road from the cottage and
you're walking in countryside with some
breathtaking views. The view of the escarpment
from the bedroom window is also amazing.
It's also a great base for exploring other places -
the lakes are only about half an hour away, and
Malham Cove is particularly worth a visit.
A five-minute trip to Settle gets you to a
supermarket for supplies, and there are also plenty
of other little shops and eateries.
Overall a great place to stay with the family.

The cottage was really big inside which was excellent as we had 2 labs and 2 grandaughters with us. All facilities were spot on but what made it trully memorable was the location. Lovely walk to the local pub and didn't encounter any traffic in the entire week we were there. Owners are really friendy and we enjoyed fresh eggs every day. Grandaughters loved the cockerel, ducks rabbits sheep and owners dogs. We are definately returning 2010 and I would think every year after.
Highly recommended 11 out of 10.
