Town: Situated in the south-west rim of the Yorkshire Dales National Park is the bustling market town of Settle. Nestled beside the largest outcrop of limestone in Britain - a region of scars, cliffs, caves and potholes â this pretty little town is set against a backdrop of some of the most picturesque scenery in North Yorkshire. Every Tuesday, the town's market place is filled with stalls offering a wide variety of crafts and goods whilst throughout the rest of the week the local businesses surrounding the market place thrive. There is a good selection of restaurants and pubs and the town also boasts an excellent public swimming pool. Three days a week, the Victoria Hall is transformed into a cinema, providing visitors with all the activities of a larger town. The famous Settle-Carlisle Railway is also a huge draw and runs regular trips across some of the most beautiful and inspiring upland scenery in the country.

Bridle Cottage is a comfortable and attractive stone cottage on three floors. It is conveniently located down a back street in the middle of Settle, just a few yards off the market square, meaning that all of the shops/amenities which Settle has to offer are within very easy reach. The house itself is surprisingly spacious, especially for the money, and includes an upstairs study (perfect for writing postcards in peace). The kitchen is rather small, but contains everything which is essential to holiday catering, including things which are sometimes overlooked, such a as cafetiere. The front room contains a log-burning stove, which is easy to use and earns the property its tick in the 'romantic getaway' box.
One limitation is that the front room is rather overlooked by passing pedestrians, which means that you have to choose between privacy and having the curtains closed whilst you are in during the daytime. Also, the plastic windows don't particularly suit the traditional stone construction of the house and give a certain cheapness to a house which otherwise verges on the luxurious.
Our holiday was done by train, so I can't vouch for the parking arrangements.

We travelled again to Settle, this time with my wife's parents. And the only drawback is I wished we would have booked a longer stay. Settle as always was wonderful and more than met with my in-laws expectations.

Quiet and cosy cottage perfectly situated down a lane off the bustling High Street and Market Square. So convenient for the excellent bakers, Booths supermarket, pubs and cafes. Settle has wonderful hill and river walks in all directions and it was a pleasure to come back to the warm and well-appointed cottage at the end of a busy day.

The cottage was well catered with all the items you would require for a long weekend. The only draw back for us was the fact that there were no doors therefore it was difficult to contain the dog although she thought the fire was put there for her only. It was fortunate that we had her cage to constrain her during the night.
The cottage was superbly positioned that although right in the center of town and yet so quiet at night
access to wonderful walks straight from the doorstep.
It is definitely a place I would return to.

We stayed for a week in Settle. We enjoy walking and this location is central to some great walks, especially the 3 peaks. The cottage is lovely and a minutes walk from the centre of the town. There are some lovely places to eat and both Booths and the railway station are close by, as is a large car-park. The cottage was spotless, well equipped and comfortable, with the owner obviously having a lovely sense of style.
