Location Details

Situated in the south-west rim of the Yorkshire Dales National Park is the bustling market town of Settle. Nestled beside the largest outcrop of limestone in Britain - a region of scars, cliffs, caves and potholes – this pretty little town is set against a backdrop of some of the most picturesque scenery in North Yorkshire. Every Tuesday, the town's market place is filled with stalls offering a wide variety of crafts and goods whilst throughout the rest of the week the local businesses surrounding the market place thrive. There is a good selection of restaurants and pubs and the town also boasts an excellent public swimming pool. Three days a week, the Victoria Hall is transformed into a cinema, providing visitors with all the activities of a larger town. The famous Settle-Carlisle Railway is also a huge draw and runs regular trips across some of the most beautiful and inspiring upland scenery in the country.

From heather-clad moors and limestone scars, to market towns and the steady pace of country life - the sublime Dales await you! Where else in Britain is it as satisfying to sit and do nothing as it is to explore the numerous pursuits on offer?


We stayed for a week in this nice little cottage. It has everything you need, and is in a perfect location. We enjoyed our stay very much!

The cottage was perfectly situated for holidaying without a car. The beds were very comfortable as was everything else in the cottage.

We stayed in Bridle Cottage in November. We loved it from the moment we arrived. The living room is warm and cosy with the log fire, and the whole house was clean and comfortable. Settle is lovely with its unique shops and traditional pubs and the cottage is right in the centre of it all. We enjoyed four days of walking with our dog, it was a bit chilly so Bridle Cottage was the perfect place to warm up and have a mulled wine in the afternoons.

A cosy cottage over 3 floors, loved the real fire and location so close to the train station in Settle.

Rated by Mrs Lawler reviewed on 11th November 2014

In a central position with endless places to visit. The Cottage was spotlessly clean & comfortable and the welcome pack was thoughtful. The owner was a pleasure to meet and was very informative. All in all, an excellent holiday.

It was quiet, comfortable, attractive and close to everything. We could walk everywhere, and spent considerable time doing so. We love Settle; we once spent a month there 28 years ago and have always wanted to go back again; we were not disappointed. This time we really saw it and although it had changed, it was still the same: friendly, busy (not just with walkers, however, but with bicyclists and many other tourists) with a very good tourist office. This time we spent more time in the town, enjoying the pubs, taking nearby walks, and just chatting with the inhabitants. Best of all: the Dales are still as beautiful as they were 28 years ago and you can still find areas that are un-crowded.

Rated by Mrs Koons reviewed on 28th July 2014

Settle is a wonderful location, especially for people who (like us) don't have a car. It has good transport links and good amenities. The house was comfortable, well furnished, and excellently situated close the the centre of Settle, near to both the shops and the station.

Rated by Mr Roberts reviewed on 5th July 2014

This was the second time we've stayed here. The location is fantastic. The cottage itself is very well appointed and spotlessly clean. It felt very homely and warm. We would come back in the future.

Rated by Mr Penfold reviewed on 3rd May 2014

A wonderful find! We particularly liked the position in Central Settle. The bed was amazing - 7ft wide and so comfortable, I have never slept so well on holiday! We loved the wood burning stove, and the well equipped kitchen. We made full use of the excellent cooker, preparing most of our evening meals at home. The extra touches of fresh eggs, milk, coffee, tea bags & biscuits were so thoughtful - a lovely welcome. We will definitely recommend to our friends.

A lovely property, and we really enjoyed our stay there.

Rated by Mr Bethell reviewed on 7th September 2013

Bridle Cottage is a comfortable and attractive stone cottage on three floors. It is conveniently located down a back street in the middle of Settle, just a few yards off the market square, meaning that all of the shops/amenities which Settle has to offer are within very easy reach. The house itself is surprisingly spacious, especially for the money, and includes an upstairs study (perfect for writing postcards in peace). The kitchen is rather small, but contains everything which is essential to holiday catering, including things which are sometimes overlooked, such a as cafetiere. The front room contains a log-burning stove, which is easy to use and earns the property its tick in the 'romantic getaway' box. One limitation is that the front room is rather overlooked by passing pedestrians, which means that you have to choose between privacy and having the curtains closed whilst you are in during the daytime. Also, the plastic windows don't particularly suit the traditional stone construction of the house and give a certain cheapness to a house which otherwise verges on the luxurious. Our holiday was done by train, so I can't vouch for the parking arrangements.

We travelled again to Settle, this time with my wife's parents. And the only drawback is I wished we would have booked a longer stay. Settle as always was wonderful and more than met with my in-laws expectations.

Rated by Ron Gee reviewed on 18th July 2013

Quiet and cosy cottage perfectly situated down a lane off the bustling High Street and Market Square. So convenient for the excellent bakers, Booths supermarket, pubs and cafes. Settle has wonderful hill and river walks in all directions and it was a pleasure to come back to the warm and well-appointed cottage at the end of a busy day.

Rated by A FlipKey verified reviewer reviewed on 23rd May 2013

So here goes. We loved the place. Settle is our one place to go in England. We have traveled around the country and it is marvelous. But nothing beats returning to Settle for the rest and relaxation. We again spent only one week there and afterwards asked ourselves why we keep doing that. During the week we say a live play, a jazz night an evening of folk music, and explored the area. Bridle cottage has everything and extras just in case. Out the front door and one hundred, +/-, you are in the village, although you would not know it from the inside of the cottage which is so quiet and comfortable. And when we were traveling back through the town later we walked by the cottage and there was work being down to upgrade the fireplace, (not sure why). A bit of advice for car owners, pay for park and pay immediately as the meter maid is always close at hand, my mistake. And next time I am there I will phone ahead with my order for more sunshine.

Settle is a lovely place and the cottage was in a good central location. The surrounding countryside is beautiful and easily accessed by train or bus. We'd brought our dog and there were plenty of places to walk with him, and we used public transport with him quite easily.

Rated by Mrs Davis reviewed on 24th July 2012

There was a lovely village feel to the place with very friendly people.

Rated by Miss Davies reviewed on 24th July 2012

The cottage was well catered with all the items you would require for a long weekend. The only draw back for us was the fact that there were no doors therefore it was difficult to contain the dog although she thought the fire was put there for her only. It was fortunate that we had her cage to constrain her during the night. The cottage was superbly positioned that although right in the center of town and yet so quiet at night access to wonderful walks straight from the doorstep. It is definitely a place I would return to.

We stayed for a week in Settle. We enjoy walking and this location is central to some great walks, especially the 3 peaks. The cottage is lovely and a minutes walk from the centre of the town. There are some lovely places to eat and both Booths and the railway station are close by, as is a large car-park. The cottage was spotless, well equipped and comfortable, with the owner obviously having a lovely sense of style.
