A very relaxing stay

5 of 5
We’ve just spent a week walking many trails in the area and were pleased to have this lovely cottage as our base. A charming 17th century cottage but with all the modern amenities. Set in a quiet village, with a good pub behind, but only minutes walk into Settle. We would definitely want to stay here again if we were in the area.

Very comfortable and well appointed. Nice walks from the doorstep including the Penine Way!

5 of 5
We had excellent weather for the week we stayed (May half term 2018). We used the property as a base for several pleasant walks and for meeting up with family. We have stayed in the Dales on many occasions before, but this property was just outside of the areas we were familiar with. We spent the bank holiday weekend walking straight from the house, including doing sections of the Pennine way, and we didn't need to get the car out. Lothersdale is a quiet little hamlet that gives the impression of being miles from anywhere, yet is only 10-15 mins drive from Skipton. One minor niggle was that the wifi was only useable in the lounge. Overall we had a great week.
