Town: Situated below a limestone scar on the Craven fault, the delightful Ribblesdale village of Giggleswick is just across the river from the bustling market town of Settle. Packed with a host of 17th Century houses and cottages, the village is centred around the beautiful St Alkelda's church – a 12th Century construction – and the domed chapel of the famous Giggleswick School – a building which dominates the local skyline. The village of Giggleswick itself has a few small shops and pubs, though the nearby market town of Settle is within easy walking distance and offers a wide range of amenities. Ingleton is also close by and is home to an excellent walking circuit that takes in many of the area’s spectacular waterfalls. For more experienced walkers, the stunning ‘Three Peaks’ are close by.
Additional amenities include: high chair, cooker.Read more

In spite of poor weather, we had a great week, thanks to the comfort of the cottage. The photograph on the website is of the back of the whole property. The front door faces a courtyard with another holiday cottage opposite. A third, two story cottage is lower down attached to our accommodation. Neither of these facts in any way interfered with us.
The kitchen is very well equipped and all the rooms are spacious with plenty of daylight. The view down the valley towards Giggleswick and Settle is great.
There is everything you need in the way of shops and a supermarket in Settle and some good pubs in the surrounding countryside. It is good walking country. The lady of the house will tell you much about it should you need information.
The only drawback is the access from the property onto the road. The traffic travels fairly fast and the road is not visible for very far to the right especially, and to the left to a lesser extent. The owners will help you with the best way out of the property. You just have to be very careful. A small price to pay for such good accomodation
great location with peace, views, easy access.

views from the windows were super, lovely walks from front door, no steps so very suitable for my disabled husband, perfectly clean with lovely bedding. When we had a problem with the heating it was resolved quickly and the service received from owners and cleaners was superb. we will return sometime it was so good.highly recommended, thank you. the snow was a bonus.

Service was good, we received an extra chair when we asked for one.
The cottage was cosy and well equiped, though a little poor on chairs (only very soft couches: killing for your back!)
It was very clean!
The location is fine, we loved the surroundings. Malham cove is very nearby and wellworth visiting.
Pleasant cottage in lovely surroundings

Cottage was homely and had good views across the valley. Dogs were welcome which was a plus point for us. Radiator in double bedroom didn't work and it was cold in the morning. Food and drink at the local pubs was good, they had a relaxed atmosphere and staff were friendly and welcoming. Fantastic walks starting just over the road.

Lovely clean well-equipped cottage close to Giggleswick and Settle. Well furnished with everything you could need in the kitchen. Very useful sheltered portico to unload wet clothes. Friendly helpful owners and lots of good amenities and walking nearby. This is an excellent holiday base and my review has to be 99% positive. If I were pressed for the other 1% I'd mention that the private drive is a fairly short run from a busy main road and while the cottage is nice and quite, I'd be worried about leaving small children outside unsupervised. All in all though, one of the best.
