A Newly Refurbished Cottage Close To Settle Town Centre, And Ideally Located To Visit The Surrounding Area

You approach the cottage through a wrought iron gated broad passageway into a private courtyard which is exclusively for your use during your stay. The walls surrounding the courtyard give you privacy where you can enjoy the sunshine. Patio furniture is provided. This is a lovely spot for lunch alfresco or an afternoon G&T. A short walk takes you into the heart of Settle. In the opposite direction from the cottage and only a two or three minute walk is the railway station and Ashfield carpark.
An automatic outside lantern welcomes you after dusk. Enter your very own secret combination into the electronic keysafe using a backlit keypad to retrieve the key to the front door. Then step into this beautifully finished cottage, where we hope you will feel at home straight away.

Entrance Hallway and Kitchen

As you make your way through the entrance hallway you will find hooks for coats and a downstairs WC. Entering into the bright, contemporary kitchen, you will find everything you need for your stay, including an electric oven, gas hob, microwave, four slice toaster, a totally frost-free fridge-freezer, dishwasher and washing machine. A dining table gives a pleasant area for enjoying your meals together. Past the fridge-freezer, you will find a boot tray and bench where you can take off your walking boots or shoes. There are more coat hooks above the boot tray for waterproofs.

There is a double wall socket with twin USB charging outlets close by each of the sofas, too.  A handmade folding louvred wooden screen provides privacy yet allows the light to flood in. If you wish, at night, this screen can be lifted off the windowsill and folded away, then the original wooden shutters can be closed.

A selection of books is provided for you to read during your stay, plus leaflets that show you some of the places to visit and eat in the local area.


Up the carpeted stairs you will find two large bedrooms and a large shared bathroom. Each bedroom has been finished in the same style but each has it’s own individual colour scheme. Both bedrooms have a king-sized double bed, matching bed-side cabinets, dressing table, chair and an open wardrobe. Luxury bedding and throws complement the Egyptian-cotton towels, all freshly laundered, are provided for you to use during your stay. You’ll find more USB sockets each side of both beds, too.

The bedrooms are separated from each other by a hallway.

On one side of the hallway is a double-doored storage cupboard, containing a vacuum cleaner and providing space for you to store your luggage during your stay.


Offering plenty of space, you will find a large straight bath where you can soak away any aches after a day walking in the hills. Should you prefer to shower, the glass screen and shower over the bath, with its dedicated thermostatic shower mixer bar provides a safe showering experience.

A combi boiler produces the domestic hot water, so there’s no need to worry about the hot water running out, even if everyone wants to take a bath or shower one after the other! There’s even a non-slip mat provided to stand on in the bottom of the bath for those wanting to take a shower. Two bath mats are also provided, one matching each of the two bedroom colour schemes.
