  • Guided mountain bike tours available from your doorstep
Property code: G0051

19th-century character cottage lovingly restored whilst retaining its original charm in the bustling market town of Settle, for families of up to four looking to uncover the beauty of Yorkshire.

Uncover this stunning two-bedroom luxury holiday cottage tucked away in the vibrant market town of Settle. Dating back to the 19th century, this character stone building has been decorated and styled to create a beautiful and relaxing space for guests. With its fantastic location just a stone's throw from the town square, this gorgeous cottage is perfect for those who enjoy having pubs, cafes and shops within a short stroll of their holiday escape.

 

This handsome building was once home to Dugdales Agricultural Engineers and the original signage now takes pride of place on the kitchen wall. With its exposed beams, dramatic double height living space and upside-down layout, it's bursting with character and quality at every turn.

 

You enter the house via a small entrance porch complete with a church pew and coat rack, perfect if you need to leave muddy boots or coats from walking in the Dales. This opens out into that fabulous light-filled space which is home to a sleek contemporary kitchen and dining area next door while underfloor heating throughout downstairs keeps your toes toasty warm.

 

The shaker-style kitchen is the perfect backdrop to the clean and elegant ambiance in here. There's a dishwasher, fridge/freezer, microwave and ceramic hob for your convenience in addition to cupboards stocked with all the equipment needed to rustle up something good. You can choose to eat at the dining table or perch yourself at the breakfast bar, which also doubles up as a rather good spot for a pre-dinner glass of bubbly.

 

Make your way up the bespoke oak staircase to discover the beautiful and spacious sitting room. With a stunning wood burner at its heart and original beams overhead, retreating to this space is a real delight. For your entertainment there is a TV with Freeview and a DVD player. Wi-Fi is available and there's also a DAB radio and a selection of books and games.

 

There are two gorgeous bedrooms in Dugdales, both of which boast king-size beds, have en-suite shower facilities and have beds dressed in the finest crisp white bed linen. The first of the bedrooms is on ground level, a room with real wow-factor due to its floor-to-ceiling arched window which has venetian blinds as window coverings and handsome sleigh bed. The second bedroom is upstairs next to the sitting room, another charming room with a grown-up stylish appeal. Both bedrooms come equipped with TV/DVD players and hairdryers.

 

Outside the property there is a pleasant stone and cobbled patio area complete with outdoor furniture, a lovely little spot for lunch alfresco or an afternoon tipple. And of course, just a few steps down the path takes you out into Settle's much-loved market square.

 

Lockable storage for bicycles is available next to the cottage if you want to bring your two wheels along. Please Note: This property is accessed by a short, cobbled path. A 24-hour car park is located 50 meters away with week-long parking tickets available.

This luxury accommodation is located in the heart of Settle, a well-loved and bustling market town home to lots of lovely cafes, restaurants, pubs and shops. There's also a thriving market held in the town every Tuesday, the perfect place to pick up everything from flowers to dinner that night. If real ale is your thing, there are three fantastic real ale pubs set around the market place, so you can choose which one to try each evening!

Just outside of town you can hop on the Settle to Carlisle railway, one of the most scenic routes in the UK which will take you over the well-known Ribblehead Viaduct (12 miles). Beyond Settle you have the exquisite delights of the Yorkshire Dales. And as you would expect, the surrounding countryside here is simply magnificent, perfect if you want to strike out from the cottage in your walking boots or on your bicycle.

It's a true walker's paradise here but if you're more of a roamer than a rambler, try a stroll around the grounds of nearby Bolton Abbey (17 miles). These gorgeous ruins provide the backdrop to a particularly beautiful part of the Dales and are well worth a visit.

There are a host of other attractions all within easy reach of Dugdales including Malham Cove (25 miles), Malham Tarn (26 miles) and the vibrant town of Skipton (21 miles).

With a varied landscape of windswept dales, heather-clad moors and dramatic coast, interspersed with picturesque towns and villages, vibrant cities and a rich historical heritage, Yorkshire is rightly considered one of Britain's premier holiday destinations. Known as 'God's Own County', Yorkshire has nearly one-third of England's National Parkland, two Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty and three sections of coastline designated as Heritage Coast.

Offering infinite opportunities for lovers of the great outdoors, the wild expanse of the Yorkshire Dales National Park in North and West Yorkshire is a glorious mix of awe-inspiring scenery, imposing castles, characterful Dales' villages and drystone walls. While to the east, the North York Moors National Park offers atmospheric moorland, fragrant pine forests and charming towns tucked away within steep-sloped valleys. Extending all the way to the Yorkshire Coast, you can even experience a traditional day at the seaside at popular resorts including Whitby, Flamborough and Scarborough. It's a beautiful terrain to explore.

A visit to the historical city of York is a must. Renowned for its medieval architecture, the magnificent York Minster and a myriad of museums, independent shops and exceptional eateries, you will not be disappointed. Then there's the chalk landscape of the Yorkshire Wolds, known to have inspired David Hockney. And with a packed calendar of events and festivals each year, including the Malton Food Festival, the Tour de Yorkshire and the Great Yorkshire Show, there's always something exciting to enjoy.

Our holiday cottages in Yorkshire are handpicked to ensure a luxurious and uniquely memorable experience. From dog-friendly cottages in the country to large family houses by the sea and romantic retreats in the city, we have a holiday in Yorkshire to suit everyone.
