Welcoming Holiday Rental, near Settle (DS103IN)

Nestling in a pretty, wooded glade, at the end of a half mile private road, The Property is in fact two cottages linked by interconnecting doors. These cottages, Jenny Wren and Wagtail Cottage, combine to accommodate a group of 10 people who can sit and eat together in Wagtail Cottage. Part of a small group of properties surrounded by open farmland, which is managed under the guidelines of the Countryside Stewardship Scheme, and situated in the Forest of Bowland Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Free range eggs and garden produce can be purchased when available. The cottages have been comfortably furnished to a high standard and provide excellent holiday accommodation, which is personally managed by the owners and their family. Well maintained, the cottages all have their own patios, which then merge into landscaped gardens, making this an idyllic and peaceful setting for a rural holiday.

On site there is a 10 x 5m heated indoor swimming pool, a games room with table tennis, pool table, table football and childrens' games as well as a full size snooker table. A tennis court and 7 a side football field provide entertainment for the more energetically minded but for those with peace and quiet in mind an afternoon by the stream can be most relaxing. Holidaymakers have access to the farmland, through which there some very pleasant walks. For the more adventurous the Three Peaks are on the doorstep where the open fells and moors provide a superb backdrop for more stunning scenery. Close by is Gisburn Forest, where there are many way-marked cycle trails and walks. For mountain bikers there are some excellent new trails in the Gisburn Forest which are suitable for all levels. There is secure bike storage and bike wash available on site. There is also fishing on Stocks Reservoir and fly fishing on the River Ribble.

Due to their effort to be environmentally friendly, the owners achieved a Gold Star Standard Award from the Green Tourism Business Scheme. Heating and hot water are supplied by a central boiler fuelled by wood chip, and all lighting is by low energy bulbs. All cleaning products are made on site from natural materials.

The busy, attractive market town of Settle is just seven miles away and the Yorkshire Dales, Trough of Bowland and Lake District are all easily accessible by car.

LocationSettle

A historic market town on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales and known as the gateway to the popular Three Peaks. The train station is the starting point of the Settle-Carlisle railway which is the perfect way to leisurely take in the scenery and make day trips to nearby towns such as Dent and Ribblehead. Walkers will be spoilt for choice with local treks including the Norber Erratics, Castleberg Rock, Malham Cove and the Goredale Scar. The Museum of North Craven Life is housed within The Folly, a listed 17th century building with interesting exhibitions of the local life and landscape.

The Ingleborough Caves have impressive formations and floodlit passages to safely explore. There are also numerous local companies who offer guided sessions for further caving and rock climbing. The nearby Ingleborough Estate nature trail has a range of wildlife to spot along the lake and woodland pathways which also pass by an old sawmill.

The Victoria Hall is the oldest surviving music hall in England and has a year round programme of theatre, films and music. The Play Barn is a soft play centre ideal for younger children, and the Forest of Bowland offers various outdoor activities, guided rambles and crafting workshops. In the heart of this area is Gisburn Forest which is popular for cycling and children’s activities.

Yorkshire

By far the largest county in the UK, Yorkshire is extremely popular for its countryside retreats as well as the bright lights of some busy cities like Harrogate, Sheffield and Leeds. Scarborough is the oldest seaside resort in Britain.

Whitby has been voted the country's best beach and has a beautiful harbour and a Dracula museum to boot (the town is featured in the Bram Stoker vampire story of the same name, as well as some of its many movie adaptations).

Yorkshire has always had a great and not always friendly rivalry with the neighbouring county of Lancashire. Some of the bloodiest battles in English history took place in these shires, as the opposing Plantagenet houses of York and Lancaster fought a bitter civil conflict commonly known as the Wars of the Roses. Nowadays the competition takes place mostly on the cricket pitch.

The two counties are among the most famous teams in this oh so important English summer game. Yorkshire has the nickname “God's own county”, a reference to the beauty of its countryside, with several National Parks formed to protect its moors and dales and rugged coastline. Cliffs of limestone, chalk and jet guard its coast against the sea. Because of its considerable size, Yorkshire is often regarded as three distinct administrative areas called “ridings” (North, West and East Riding), a Scandinavian concept thought to derive from the Viking occupation in the first century AD.
