Town: The beautiful village of Horton-in-Ribblesdale is situated in the Yorkshire Dales National Park and is surrounded by spectacular countryside. It has two pubs and a village store providing amenities for visitors, and the lovely old church of St Oswald's was established in the 12th Century and has records dating as far back as 1556. The village is a perfect location for walkers and the famous Three Peaks Walk, Pen-Y-Ghent, Whernside and Ingleborough offers some very challenging walks. Pot holers and rock climbers are also very well catered for, but if more gentle pursuits are the order of the day then a trip to nearby Settle to sample the tea-rooms and other shops should fit the bill. There are many attractions to visit in this spectacular area and Horton is the ideal village from which to see them.

A very homely comfortable cottage. Very clean and well equipt except for a none working wall clock. Loved the cookies.

It was a cold week but the fire that was already lit in the grate when we arrived was indicative of our welcome. Unlimited coal, central heating, a homely feel and friendly farming folk made this cottage a delight. Our two small dogs loved it too, and they were made welcome despite it being the height of the lambing season. Highly recommended, the cottage was an ideal base for sightseeing or walking in North Yorkshire. We are going back in September!
Cosy in a superb location

We arrived with the weather forecast threatening blizzards and dire warnings. The cottage was warm and comfortable with a welcoming fire already alight and waiting for us as were complimentary supplies and plenty of coal. Some of the coldest weather for years but the Dales scenery was stunning and the owners very Kind. Good food at the local Pub. Whole heartedly recommended, we shall return.

This cottage was just what we wanted. Quaint and modern at the same time. Ideal for people with two dogs. An excellent location in the heart of the three peaks. We managed some wonderful walks and had a really relaxing time. In fact it was so good we have already booked for next august.

In spite of horrendous weather (wet except for two days) we enjoyed the stay very much. Plenty to do in the area.

Lovely cottage, lovely location, ideally suited to enjoying the therr peaks and even doing the three peaks challege if you are up to it. Ideal enclosed garden for the dog and kids, very friendly and approachable hosts who would leave you alone but be there if you needed advice on where to go or shop. I would stay there again.
A beautiful country retreat

Really cosy, comfortable, peaceful retreat away from it all. The real coal fire, comfortable furnishings and clean facilities made staying in this cottage an absolute delight. We stayed here for a New Year get away and my husband and I got engaged while hiking and on reaching the summit of Whernside, this cottage is the perfect base for the Yorkshire Three Peaks. We had a wonderful romantic stay and would thoroughly recommend it to other couples and small families.
A great "get away from it all " location. Surrounded by beautifu

We received good service from Sykes. The cottage was well equipped although a shower in the bathroom would have been nice. The cottage is in a quiet location and plenty of walking from the doorstep. The local pub within walking distance serves very good meals and is a lovely stop off on the way home after a good day walking for a well earned drink!!!
The local shop served all the essentials although only a short drive into Settle for the local market and supermarkets. We walked the "three peaks" although on seperate days!! Horton very busy at weekends due to the three peak challenge but quieter in the week. Sheep dog trials in Hawes worth a visit. We liked the peace and quiet the best and apart from the lack of a shower the holiday was perfect.

Friendly locals and a warm welcome.Well presented cottage with old world charm. Quietly tucked away and ideally placed in what can be a busy walking and climbing centre. Handy for the Settle-Carlisle railway.
Because of the the Three Peaks this area can get very crowded and it can be dificult to get served in the pubs at peak times, however a small price to pay for the delights of this part of England.

A great weekend

The cottage was clean and tidy, the fire was lit when we arrived and the place was nice and warm. There was cake with tea/coffee things waiting for us.
The cottage had views of the hills and Penyghent. There was a pub, cafe and shop in the village of Horton in Ribblesdale. Great location for walking and the 3 peaks.
Nice peaceful place for a get away from it all weekend.
A very pleasant holiday

The lady of the ownership was extremely kind and helpful -
The cottage was comfortable. The lane running past the farm was a lovely walk looking out over the Dales. It was peaceful. The local pub was within walking distance but the food was not remarkable. Good touring base for the area.
