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.

The location of the property is perfect, parking is brilliant and the house couldn't really be any better.
Mr Reading

A lovely comfortable house in a very pleasant and convenient location.
Mrs Gibbs

Well located and very well equipped house. Easy access to all main amenities in Settle.
Mr Walker

The owner has obviously put a lot of thought into the cottage. The internal decorations are in keeping with the period of the cottage. Cannot rate this cottage highly enough. It almost felt like you'd been invited to stay in someone's home rather than a holiday let. Fantastic.
Mrs Saxon
