First impressions were very impressive. Lovely flowers when entering the cottage, milk in the fridge and all your kitchen essentials. However when looking closer the cottage was quite dated, paint coming off of the walls and seemed like it needed a good deep clean. Decent retro hot tub however this was in a dog friendly court yard where dogs had clearly urinated which kind of killed the vibe. Lovely location for hiking and local pubs. You can definitely get better value for your money, will not be returning.

Not so dog friendly - dog owners beware.
We had a lovely week away in this cottage. The location is great. However, the cottage is advertised as dog friendly, yet the owner refused to pay our ?100 bond back because "there was dog hair everywhere". The cleaner met us as we left the cottage and was already complaining that she is only given 2 hours to clean this property which is quite large. If you have a dog I would not recommend staying here unless you are prepared to clean it top to bottom before you leave or still find the cost reasonable with the ?100 bond. I'd also be very weary if you are taking children for the same reason. Otherwise it's a lovely cottage.

Amazing New Year Break!!
We booked Ivy Cottage to celebrate the new year with friends and had a fantastic stay. When we arrived the owner, Lianne had kindly left us a bottle of prosecco, mince pies and cookies to enjoy. The cottage is beautiful, the beds were nice and comfortable, it was well equipped for our week away and the underfloor heating was a big hit! Having the travel cot and highchair supplied was also an added bonus. The village of settle is great, with lots of places to eat, drink and walks to enjoy. On New Years Eve we walked to the station and caught the train into Skipton for a few hours, the train only took 30 minutes. We made our way back later on and ate in The Lion that evening. Great food and atmosphere! Whilst in the area we ate at The Royal Oak which served nice food and also The Old Man Cafe, great coffee and cakes! We can't say anything negative about our stay here as it was amazing from start to finish. Lianne did everything she could to make our stay one not to forget, even coming to apologise to us and bringing spare Christmas tree lights on our first day as the ones on the tree had blown the day before we arrived. Lianne, your cottage is beautiful and having the hot tub was also an added bonus as we did manage to use this on one of the evenings. We will definitely be recommending Ivy Cottage to others and would return in the future. Happy New Year!!!

Perfect, perfect, perfect
Perfect.Perfect.Perfect. The cottage its location and the amenities The cottage is beautifully decorated. It is contemporary yet cosy with great care and attention to every detail.

Top Class Cottage
I?m normally quite lazy when it comes to writing reviews, but I just had to take the time to give this lovely cottage a mention. Ivy Cottage is by far the best cottage that we have stayed in yet. It is so stylish, but maintains such a homely feel that you never want to leave it! The attention to detail shows how much the owner cares about the cottage and its visitors, and the welcome gifts were an added bonus (thanks Lianne). Relaxing in the hot tub after a long day?s walk is a must, especially with the complimentary fizz! The underfloor heating kept the cottage so toasty-warm that we never needed to use the wood burning stove, even on cold days. Parking is on the street, but we always managed to find a spot within a short distance of the cottage, so it was never a problem. There are some lovely walks in the area and some straight from the door. The centre of Settle is 100 metres from the cottage with a good selection of shops and pubs, many of which welcome dogs. I would 100% recommend this cottage, and Settle, and hope to return again soon.
