Description

Settle 0.7 miles. Lychgate Cottage is a delightful cottage resting just outside the popular market town of Settle in Giggleswick, Yorkshire close to the Three peaks area of the Dales. Ideal for two couples or a small family, this charming dwelling offers a quirky layout and warming woodburning stove making it a perfect base all year round. Arriving at the property, parking is located just outside near the quaint church, before stepping into your home away from home for the trip. Enter into the living/dining room and settle in for the evening to watch TV while the woodburning stove crackles in the background. From here, make your way to the kitchen to whip up a delicious meal for your group to enjoy as a family at the dining table; the kitchen hosts an electric oven and gas hob, as well as a handy dishwasher to assist with the cleanup. As the evening draws to a close, head upstairs to rest your eyes in one of two double bedrooms. The first bedroom is mezzanine-style and accessed via a separate set of stairs, allowing plenty of privacy for couples. The second bedroom is located up the second set of stairs where you will also find a sleek bathroom so you can freshen up between activities or indulge in a long soak with a good book. Outside, you can enjoy a coffee on the patio in the crisp morning sun before the rest of your group rises. If you want to venture out for the evening, a 5 minute walk takes you to the Harts Head Hotel, why not treat your group to a pint or two? The area and surrounding villages will not leave you short for activities and attractions, with the plenty of shops including Booths supermarket, pubs and eateries to fuel your excursions. Settle railway station is 0.9 miles from the cottage for trips on the historic Settle-Carlisle railway over the impressive Ribblehead viaduct. Additionally, hikers can plan walks from local stations on this line as well as Giggleswick station being 1.1 miles from the cottage with services to historic Lancaster. Likewise, hikers can plan walks from local stations on this line. Heading into Settle town centre, you will happen upon Sydney's a contemporary yet characterful restaurant offering tradtitonal mains, along with small plates and pizzas so there is something for every taste. Embrace the local culture and spend an afternoon at the Museum of North Craven Life with its cosy cafe, which is within walking distance of the cottage in Settle. If you prefer to do your exploring by foot, head to Ingleborough Estate Nature Trail and follow the varying wooded trails which lead to Ingleborough Cave. The caves can be toured and boast lit pathways and fossils, or you can venture slightly further to the UK's longest cave, White Scar Cave.
The stunning Malham Cove and Gordale Scar are only 8 miles away. Lovers of wild swimming can swim at Stainforth Force, which is 2.5 miles away, about an hours walk on the Ribble way or a few minutes drive, park at Stainforth village. Branching further afield, take a day drip to the picturesque Lake District and relish in the stunning views of the lakes and peaks, or head north and explore even more of the Yorkshire Dales National Park where there is an abundance of walking and cycling opportunities. Lychgate Cottage is a wonderful base for a relaxing break to the Yorkshire Dales.
The popular market town of Settle is known for its convenient location at the south west edge of the Yorkshire Dales National Park and the thriving Tuesday market. The area is encompassed by the largest outcrop of limestone in Britain, creating marvellous caves and cliffs to discover. The town centre is dominated by The Shambles, an historic three storey building with shops on two levels and houses above, while nearby you can venture into the surrounding countryside villages for an array of walking and cycling opportunities.

‘It’s a very picturesque cottage in a beautiful village. Very safe garden and ideally placed for touring the Jurassic coast. The bed linen was spotless and the shower was excellent. However, we had a pile of un-bagged dirty bed linen by the front door from arrival on the Saturday until Wednesday, despite me ringing more than once for it to be removed. We didn’t find the information booklet until the Thursday when we discovered it in a magazine rack covered in cobwebs. There were dust bunnies under the settee, the kitchen mat was absolutely filthy and the table top was falling off meaning we couldn’t eat there. We knew parking might be difficult, and it was, plus there are now several private notices telling you not to park opposite drives, understandable if you’re a local and having difficulty getting your car out. Would I go back? No. Would I recommend it? No. Finally I must add I’ve sent the same review to Sykes, I’ve never complained before as we all have our individual standards and, by and large, I’ve always been satisfied. But, in my opinion, this cottage needs a really thorough clean.’
