The famous Settle to Carlisle Railway passes through the village and crosses the Ribblehead viaduct - completed in 1870. The nearby market town of Settle is home to a selection of pubs and restaurants whilst the market square features a historic three-storey building with shops on two levels and houses above. The Victoria Hall serves as a cinema on Fridays and Saturdays and offers other activities such as folk nights throughout the year.

Six family members stayed at Fawber Cottage for a weekend in May as a base for completing the there peaks.. It had everything we needed. We wished we could have stayed longer to enjoy the lovely big garden. We would definitely stay again!
A lovely quaint cottage in a beautiful location, perfect for exploring the dales.. Quiet and peaceful.
Stayed at Fawber Cottage before and was just as welcoming and cosy..
The cottage was a perfect escape to reconnect with the important things in life.. Friendship, Peace and Simplicity.
No internet no signal so it was nice to be free of those modern day distractions.. Interesting cottage, well equipped.
Had a nice time walking on three peaks
This cottage is ideally located if you wish to complete the Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge..
Comfortable, clean and perfect base for us to start the Three Peaks Challenge from, pub just down the road.. Garden flowers in full bloom which looked great, shame we could not stay and enjoy the location longer. Thank you.
Lovely little cottage in an idyllic location, perfect for what we needed as a group.. Local village is great with 2 nice pubs and the local scenery is stunning. The cottage had everything we needed and was comfortable, clean and homely. We completed the 3 Peaks while we were her and will definitely return.
Fawber Cottage was lovely and cosy and it felt like a home from home.. It has lots of character and the garden has super views onto the fields and hills beyond. The log burning stove was a treat! We will definitely be back!
The heating wasn't working in 3 of the rooms.. We contacted the local contact about this but heard nothing back. It was too cold to be comfortable without wearing all our clothes and getting lots of blankets (of which, luckily, there were many in the property).
This is the 4th time my group has stayed at Fawber Cottage which has to tell you something.. The parking is now much improved with a new area next to the barn for 1 car and the area next to the gate also much improved for a second car.
Another great break with some excellent walking.
The bread proving setting on the oven is really useful although the cottage is really warm once the burner is up and running.
We will be going again as there are plenty of walks remaining on our list!!!
Lovely quiet cottage in idyllic setting, a perfect base for exploring the Dales!
This is the third time my group has stayed at Fawber Cottage. There are great walks straight from the door and we like to stoke up the fire in the lounge, making the cottage a cosy place to be. Would we go again? The answer has to be yes.
What a beautiful cottage, we loved it, it was so cosy and warm, lovely little wood burner which was a treat. The garden was very nice, beautiful rockery and lovely little areas where you can sit with a drink and enjoy the scenery. We loved it.
This is the second time my group had stayed at this property, it is excellent value for money. The cottage is cosy once the multi fuel stove is stoked up and the fabric of the building is warmed through. The overall feel of the cottage is good, we like the fact that the kitchen and dining room are one large area. A really good cottage to get away from it all and have a few meaningful discussions. Great walks direct from the property and short drives give even more choice.
In a quiet location with very easy access to open countryside and great walks.
Well appointed property, good location for the village, good value, comfortable rooms and everything in working order.
Comfortable cottage, perfect location, Clean and cosy. Overall excellent and the stove in living room made it really welcoming. We loved it.
The cottage was an authentic Dales cottage and felt like home from the moment we opened the door. The location was perfect for the Three Peaks walk. Everyone loved it and were sad to leave after a wonderful weekend.
A wonderful cottage with great access to the Yorkshire dales - couldn't have been better!
Cosy, very comfortable and full of character. The house worked really well for us.
A beautiful cottage in a beautiful location. Will definitely be returning in the future. Overall a great experience!
Fawber Cottage is just the real deal. It is exactly what you imagine a Dale cottage to be and absolutely authentic in every detail. We were instantly charmed and kept smiling all week. Everything is spotlessly clean, very well organised and unbelievably cosy - it was like staying with the great-aunt you never had - and the beautiful wrap-around garden is a joy. No complaints at all, this is a perfect get-away.
The cottage had so much character and was very comfortable.
A wonderfully peaceful location. Lovely garden with lots of birds to watch. Excellent base for touring.
Great location, peaceful and quiet, yet easy access to most places. Great cottage with plenty of character.
We had a fantastic stay in Fawber Cottage and loved its cosy character, it was just what we wanted. It was lovely and warm when we arrived and very clean and tidy. We enjoyed having a wood burning stove very much and the children loved playing outside. It was a fantastic base for climbing Pen-y-Ghent and exploring the surrounding villages. We will definitely come and stay again.
My group of 5 stayed here for 3 nights in November 20102. The house is OK for 5 but an extra loo would have handy at times. The kitchen and dining area is excellent, comfortable lounge. Bedrooms good with comfortable beds. The only gripe would be parking, there is enough room for 2 cars but being on a track it was extremely muddy and passing gear from person to person so not as to get mud into the cottage was the order of the day. We had 2 good walks, 3 if you count a walk to the pub one evening.
The cottage is in a gorgeous location within easy reach of many of the Dales. It had everything we needed whilst retaining its Dales charm and character. The view in the garden was stunning and heading back home after a busy day out, we always looked forward to our cosy peacefhome from home! Thanks to all at Sykes Cottages for your efficient and friendly service.
The cottage was very homely and well-equipped. Coal was provided for the fire. Excellent location for visiting the Yorkshire Dales.
As a German visitor the typical English cottage style and the surroundings next to the Pennine Way and other walking paths. The overall warm and cosy atmosphere.
Quiet setting, lovely garden, old world charm.
Nice and quiet, walks start from the front door and open spaces.
Beautiful, peaceful location. Stunning views. Gardens were very quaint and the cottage is very well equipped for a property of this type.
The cottage was lovely; tastefully decorated and very warm - the stove was perfect and kept the house very toasty. There were six adults in the party and the rooms were big enough to accommodate all without any stepping on toes. The caretaker was lovely and helpful too.
Lovely quiet setting with view of Pen-y-Ghent. Charming period features. Excellent sized kitchen and living room. Storage heaters worked well.
Lovely planting in garden.
A very well kept cottage in a lovely quiet location. A 10 minute walk and you are on the Pennine bridleway overlooking Ribblesdale.
Whilst it was well equipped with most things, I think the TV needs bringing into the 21st century. It was an old set with 4:3 screen, not at all suitable for the connected Sky Box (which only had the basic channels). An up to date wide screen TV is needed and I'm not sure whether Freeview, which would give you a lot more channels, is receivable in this area.
Since there is no Hi-Fi equipment you need to take your own mini hi-fi system (as I did).
Radio reception is non-existent with DAB and you need a proper rod aerial for FM reception (if you have a radio with a wire aerial it will simply not work).
The location of the cottage was superb. The birds nesting on the cottage and in the outbuildings and garden were a particular delight.
A lovely old fashioned cottage with an excellently equipped kitchen. A good, quiet location, perfect for walking.
Fawber cottage is a lovely place to stay. The location is great, you can take really good walks straight from the front door. The cottage has lots of character. It isn't a posh/luxurious cottage, it retains its basic rural charm with a wood burning stove. Facilities are all that you could need.
This is a lovely little cottage tucked away near farm land in Horton-in-Ribblesdale. It was immaculately clean, and everything we needed was provided. The living room was very cosy, and the kitchen table was perfect for gathering around for roast dinners.
We vistited over New Year after a period of heavy snowfall, yet the cottage was always warm. We were able to go on walks straight from the cottage door, and met the local potholing club along the way!
There is a small village shop approx 25mins walk from the house selling very limited supplies, but a car journey is definitely necessary for more stocking up.
Overall a wonderful, quaint little place!
We had a fantastic time in this lovely cottage. Everything we needed was provided, and we found the property remarkably warm and cosy given the snow outside. The decor and furnishings were simple and functional, but the house was spotless and overall it was exactly what we were looking for, as well as being excellent value. There was a close-by pub and small shop for essentials, though we found that we were so content inside that we barely ventured out! An excellent stay all round.
I had been previously so knew what to expect, it's quite traditional and in a lovely location. The bed was really comfortable, bathroom was modern, kitchen was very well-equipped, it was really warm and I love the multi-fuel stove. The location is fantastic, you can walk straight from the door. It was just what I wanted and we all really enjoyed our holiday.
Amazing location and a very cosy, warm cottage.
The position of the cottage is wonderful, the cottage is very picturesque, the facilities int eh kitchen are excellent. The furishing and decorations are slightly faded, and the double bed was old and uncomfortable, One bathroom was fine for 2 of us but woulld have been more difficult to manage with more peole in the hose without a separate WC.
Really beautiful rural setting with fantastic walks from doorstep. Cottage very cosy, multi fuel stove particularly welcoming after day out in the fresh air. Lovely children's play park and tennis courts in village which were accessed via a field of sheep (my kids loved that).
The location of this cottage is perfect! You can walk from the front door out onto the Pennine Way and there are many excellent well marked paths that can be walked from New Houses. The building itself is charming and the coal stove makes it very cosy at night.
Peaceful location, proximity to pub/shop, comfortable accommodation, very comfy beds
We stayed here Easter 2009 and found teh location perfect. We hardly used the car being able to walk dirctly from the house into the hills or to teh railway station to catch trains to get us further afield. House provided everything we required.
This was a lovely little cottage in a very private location. It had a great kitchen (perfect for an evening roast) and a very nice fireplace in the living room. There is a pub down the road and a tea room a little further on. The cottage is in a perfect spot for walking Pen-y-ghent and accessing lots of other walks in the area.
Outside lights were on when we arrived in the dark, it was welcoming after a long journey. Cottage in a nice area.
Nice amount of games (board and playstation), books and videos.
We found people most pleasant, and food available there was excellent. Train to Ashley and the weather was beautiful.
We enjoyed the cosiness of the cottage and the privacy - a real get-away-from-it-all holiday. We were able to go walking straight from the door and only a 10 min walk to the Crown pub for a meal. The cottage is also situated well for a number of places we wanted to visit, Dent, Clapham, Ribbleshead viaduct and Settle.
Liked the location and facilities and had a great relaxing holiday.
Although the cottage was in a hamlet it was still a quiet, peaceful location. Plenty of bats, swallows, starlings roosting in bordering hedge, crowing cockerels and sheep. Location was very convenient but just enough off the beaten track.
A comfortable cottage in a lovely, quiet location. Excellent views from the garden and ideal for those wishing to walk the Three Peaks of Yorkshire. Two pubs with meals within walking distance, plus local shop in Horton.
We had a fabulous week, the cottage was very homely and was a comfy base to return to after our visits out each day.
The location was superb for walking in the surrounding area. Lovely little cottage to come back to after a long walk.
A lovely homely cottage in a quiet hamlet with great views but with easy walking access to pub, shop and railway station. Great walks straight from the door.
Ms O' Neill
Great place, had a fab visit. Thanks!
Cosy cottage but also quite spacious accommodation. In centre of the main Dales peaks and surrounded by beautiful countryside and walks. Lots of lambs.
Mr Mrs Bartlett
Lovely, warm welcoming cottage in quiet, unspoilt surroundings. Very comfortable and homely. A relaxing, restoring place to be. Ideal base for Dales exploring.
Mr Mrs James
The scenery was spectacular, all within a 30 mile radius from the cottage. The location of the cottage was quiet, yet it was within a reasonable walking distance from Horton and just 90 minutes by car from York.
This cottage was very welcoming and homely, well-equipped and comfortable. I appreciated the fact that we were left in peace to enjoy it, which we certainly did. I would most definitely recommend it.
Cosy clean cottage in a lovely area.
Very cosy cottage in a nice quiet area.
The cottage was decorated in a country cottage style and very comfortable. The Pennine way and Pen-y-Gent paths go past the cottage so ideal for some excellent walks.
The cottage is very warm and cosy even in December and there is plenty of space in the downstairs areas. We have yet to let a cottage from Sykes which does not come up to our expectations and fit exactly to the description that Sykes gave.
Superb base for exploring the area particularly on foot from the front door.
Lovely cottage, perfectly placed. Will definitely stay again.
The location is ideal for walking and exploring the 3 peaks and the rest of the countryside.
Central as a base for touring around by car which was our intention when booking. Superb views all around. Quiet location and detached.
We were very happy with the cottage. It was ideal for walkers i.e Slate Floor to kitchen (muddy boots).
It was our fifth stay at Fawber, what can I say? Snow on Pen-y-ghent, really quiet and relaxing, the caretaker keeps the place spotless and a fire roaring in the living room. Can't beat it.
Easy to walk straight from the house. Good amount of space in the house for 4.
Great area and would definitely return.
Location - quiet, yet convenient for amenities and tourist spots. Child-friendly (cot, booster seat, storybooks there, though not advertised in the blurb). A very comfortable, homely, well-equipped cottage.
It was a very comfortable, welcoming cottage in a very quiet, secluded spot, with lovely views.
We were very impressed with the care and attention given to us by the lady who looked after the property.
We have been to this property before, it was nice that Sykes have now offered short breaks and weekend deals. The owner was discrete as ever.
The cottage was spotless. A beautiful and cosy cottage.
