My family and I moved to the Yorkshire Dales in 2000 from Brighton and fell in love with the whole area!

We bought Sunnybeck in Giggleswick as a bolthole and decided to holiday let the cottage to friends and family which turned out to be a very successfully business and we now have 2 cottages in the area!

We manage all our own properties and live in the area so we meet and greet all our guests and are on hand at all times if needed!

We offer a completely personal service and cater for everything from dog walking, babysitting, home cooked meals on arrival, pick up from the station, we even have a tour guide (he is a real historian!).

We are unique and feel all the personal touches are taken care

CAROL ROBERTSON purchased this cottage in 2009

What makes this cottage unique

We are told frequently it is all about the attention to details that our guests return year after year.

We also live nearby and are on hand if you have a problem, which can be very important. We try and meet our guests when we can and this is also a great benefit for guests arriving to unfamiliar home, and area, it is a great relief to be handed the keys and given all the local information.

My family and I stayed here in July and we were so excited to see how beautiful and spacious the Cottage was! It was clean, well appointed and even better than advertised. Carol greeted us with a lovely gift basket and made us feel welcomed. She gave us advice on local places to eat/shop etc.. and was responded promptly to all of our text messages. Giggleswick is a quiet village with spectacular views! We would love to come back here someday! Thank you so much Carol for making our stay fabulous!

Charming house!

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed here in early July 2018 and we had a lovely time. The house was immaculately clean when we arrived and full of charming details. The house was very well equipped with everything we could wish for. Sitting in the kitchen area at the end of the day was so relaxing. The patio area outside the kitchen is full of tubs with flowers (which I had fun watering in the very hot weather). The cute beck just outside the property add to the atmosphere. It was an easy 15 minute walk over to the shops and facilities in Settle. I travel to Settle regularly and I will definitely stay here again. Thanks Carol!

We had the most wonderful holiday at Sunnybeck.

Beautiful cosy cottage with everything you could possibly need set in a charming village.

Our dog loved his time in the Dales and he had the added benefit of the field next door to play "fetch." We hope to be back soon.

Thank you Carol and Steve for your warm welcome and useful information on the surrounding areas.
