Wagon House is a stone-built, detached cottage situated in the hamlet of Helwith Bridge, near both Horton-in-Ribblesdale and Settle within the Yorkshire Dales National Park.

Nice, but no cigar.
It looks nice in this photo but it doesn't tell the story we found. Firstly, however, it is a lovely area and a great location to explore the Dales from. On arrival, we found the outside was overgrown with weeds and a large wild rose right next to the car parking area which 'found' me in the dark! There were numerous bins (some with no lids) scattered around and other detritus in the area including a derelict Land Rover. It is a 75yd drive in - reverse out, or vise-versa, no turning around is possible, the drive way is VERY uneven and slippery in the wet and was often partially obstructed by other cars. Inside we found a cold and un-loved cottage, still with dog hairs on the carpet from, presumably, the previous guests (and a very doggy smell). There were cobwebs in the kitchen with dead insects still in place and black mould in the bathroom. It could have been so much nicer if it had been cleaned properly and left with the heaters on. There we no instructions for what to do with recycling or general refuse, or even which of the many bins were to be used! Overall a great shame as we really did love the area. Maybe it was just the end of the season, we'll never know as we don't plan to go back to this cottage. I have never felt the need to leave a negative review before so to do this saddens me. The pub landlord didn't seem particularly welcoming and we ate regularly at the Harts Head, just down the road in Giggleswick - a great pub.

Very quiet retreat for a break in the Dales
The cottage itself is delightful, with all the facilities that are needed for a quiet break away from modern life. Walks are possible right from the door of the cottage and access to Settle is easy for daily needs. The only drawback - and this is nothing to do with the cottage itself - is the amount of dust and dirt in the village itself. The quarrying company are trying to mitigate the situation by regularly washing the roads and if you are prepared to travel a short distance by car before starting your walks you can get away from it.

The cottage was gorgeous and the owner was very friendly and helpful. Had a wonderful weekend and will be booking again.

We loved Wagon House and the attention to detail to make it a very pleasant stay. There were walks we could do from the cottage. Shops weren't too far. An excellent week.
Mr Mack

We liked the location of the property as it was ideally placed for visiting areas of outstanding beauty. It was not too far from a town. There was peace and quiet at the property so you could relax. There was plenty of walking and views to see.
