Overview

Property

Updated: 06-Dec-2016
Traditional stone Cottage in Giggleswick, Nr. Settle, North Yorkshire, England - Quiet Location With Walking On Your Doorstep, 2 Local Playgrounds, Local Swimming Pool Etc...

Bankwell cottage is a real gem and due to the success of its sister Sunnybeck, it won't disappoint! The cottage is spacious with 3 large double beds (twin room and 2 double bedrooms). The cottage is close to the village just a 5 min stroll and Settle a 15 min walk away. Set in a row of pretty cottages it benefits from a private courtyard rear garden, lovely front garden, off street parking and a secure bike store. This offers the opportunity to relax and unwind or explore the Yorkshire Dales either on foot or cycle. Settle to Carlisle railway is close by with regular trains to Leeds. The cottage has internet access and towels and bedding are all included. The market town of Settle has many good pubs and restaurants and also Skipton is a 25 min drive away. There is so much to explore! If you fancy a round of golf the municipal course is on your doorstep and for the younger visitors, there are plenty of parks and playgrounds and of course ducks to feed. A perfect base!

About the Owner

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 popular and we purchased Bankwell a year later.

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

Wonderful cottage in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We had a great weeks stay at this cottage. Carol was incredibly welcoming and helpful. The cottage was very clean and well equipped, I don't think the description did it justice! Everything we needed was provided. The cottage is in a great location for anyone wishing to explore the Dales, it is also within walking distance of Giggleswick and Settle which is really handy. I look forward to returning to one of Carol's cottages in the future.

Location

From the Owner

Bankwell cottage was purchased in 2010 and I decided to refurbish the cottage for holiday let in 2011 due to the success of Sunnybeck cottage. Giggleswick is a chocolate box village with 2 lovely pubs, a Tuck Shop, church and the famous Giggleswick School with its beautiful chapel. The whole area is stunning and a complete switch off from busy life. If you don't fancy walking the three peaks you can visit many of the local towns and villages close by or take the steam train from Settle to Carlisle.
