The perfect getaway.
We have stayed in a lot of holiday cottages and many have been excellent. Gilchrist House, however was perfect for a February getaway. All the bedrooms are spacious and comfortable with lovely bedding. We used the front bedroom on the first floor and loved waking up to the view across the river to Giggleswick. The real fire was a treat on a cold, wet, windy night as we suggled up on the sofas in the living room, and then in the morning we enjoyed birdwatching from the bay window. We had the hous t ourselves as a couple, but the house sleeps up to 7 and would be big enough for two families. The kitchen has everything you need, although with plenty of places to eat such good food it's a good job that there is plenty of great walking fro the door. We wouldn't hesitate to go back.

Half term break
Excellent location, facilities and equipment for 7 of us who stayed. The basement games room was a bonus for my 9year old grandson. Local cafes , take a ways and swimming pool were all excellent. The location is ideal for the three peaks, settle to Carlisle railway ( though at moment due to land slip it is best to have a return ticket to Appleby) and local walks. Particularly good value for post half term.

Spacious luxury cottage by the river
Excellent accommodation, spacious and comfortable with everything we needed. Great location for walks. Look forward to paying another visit. (Wifi signal was a bit weak at times but we managed)

The cottage was beautiful. It was comfortable and homely. It was very well equipped and in a fantastic location. The owners were very helpful.


The House was in a lovely location with views over the river. It was a comfortable house with great decor and features. You felt at home. There was a strong family emphasis with the decor; but also the multitude of games and entertainment choices available in the home. Settle is a very interesting town, with very friendly people with lots of amenities. It is within a short scenic drive to many places of interest so a relaxing holiday was enjoyed.
