About Dugdales Barn

Welcome to Dugdales Barn, a stunning 2-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 subject to an outstanding renovation which has transformed it into one of Yorkshire's most desirable properties. 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.

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. Underfloor heating throughout downstairs keeps your toes toasty warm...

The shaker style kitchen and brick tiling are 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 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 exposed oak beams overhead, retreating to this space a real delight. For your entertainment there is a large Flat screen TV with Freeview & a DVD Player - a selection of DVDs are provided too. 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 with its floor to ceiling arched window 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 also come equipped with TV/DVD players and hairdryers.

Outside the property there is a pleasant stone and cobbled patio area complete with patio furniture, a lovely little spot for lunch al fresco or an afternoon G & T. 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 it 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.

Local Area

Dugdales Barn is located in the heart of Settle, a well-loved and bustling market town home to lots of lovely cafes, restaurants, pubs and shops including the famous Ye Olde Naked Man Cafe in the square. 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 3 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 take you over the well-known Ribblehead viaduct.

Beyond Settle you have the exquisite delights of the Yorkshire Dales. And of course as you would expect the surrounding countryside here is simply magnificent, perfect if you want to just strike out from the cottage in your walking boots or on your bicycle.

It's a true walker's paradise here and you are very close to the famous Three Peaks here. If you're more of a roamer than a rambler try a stroll around the grounds of nearby Bolton Abbey.  These gorgeous ruins provide the backdrop to a particularly beautiful part of the Dales and are well worth a visit.  Top it off with dinner in the Michelin-starred Burlington restaurant found in the Devonshire Arms close to the Abbey.

There are a host of other attractions all within easy reach of Dugdales including Malham Cove, Malham Tarn and the vibrant town of Skipton. Leeds, York and the Lakes are all within striking distance too, so lots of choice for day-trips.
