The owner keeps the house in immaculate condition.. It was warm and cosy when we arrived and there was milk and tea/coffee ready for us to use. The key collection details were quick and easy and the owner popped round the first evening to make sure everything was ok and to check we didnt need anything. We had the large front bedroom with a super king sized bed, the duvet was snuggly and cosy. We went to sleep every night to the sound of the River Ribble burbling (although on one day it was positively raging!) along in its bed. My husband walked along it for a fair way.
There was so much to do in and around Settle, which is a very busy market town. I recommend the Golden Lion for good food and great beer! Ruchee offers great Indian and Bangladeshi food to eat in and take out. The Fishermans Fish and Chips are wonderful. Do visit the Naked man Cafe for great coffee and friendly staff, the antique shop has some gorgeous things in it, and the tiny second hand book shop hidden down an alleyway is fantastic and a great place to stock up on holiday reading! There is also the Watershed Mill and cafe where you can buy good quality walking and wet weather gear along with loads of other things, a lot at reduced prices. The cafe there offers good food at good prices too,.
Do visit the Courtyard Cheese Shop at the Cheese Barn about 5 mins drive away along the A59 - fantastic cheeses to sample and buy and I highly recommend their little cafe especially the cheese taster plate and the coffee and walnut cake!
