Full of limestone pavements and scars, caves and open moors, this diverse and varied scenery offers a wealth of wonderful cycle tracks and walks through areas full of natural interest. In addition to boasting an excellent local pub serveing home cooked meals as well as a country hotel for an extra special night out, Austwick also has a shop and post office to meet visitors daily needs. As one of the less well-known villages in the area, this wonderful little settlement offers a quiet location off the beaten track and away from the crowds. With the towns of Settle, Kirkby Lonsdale, Skipton and Kendal all close by, Austwick provides peace and quiet without leaving you feeling marooned.

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?

Great place for a few days away, perfect for that self catering break. Whenever you see the owners they always check everything is OK nothing seems too much trouble for them. The pub in the village serves great food but book before you arrive. Thanks for everything

We had a wonderful three week stay, the accommodation was exactly as advertised and more.. Our hosts Pip and Alec were very friendly, helpful and in-fact Pip was like a fairy godmother helping with our washing. Nothing was too much trouble for them. On our last morning Pip made us a lovely big breakfast to send us on our travels, lovely gesture. In addition, the village is lovely for walks, the pub is great too which we can highly recommend and You can get the best coffee at the local Post Office, Also a must, which came recommended, visit Elaines Tea Room for lovely meals and cakes and The Court Yard for its award winning cheeses. We can’t fault the place. We will definitely be returning for a short break, it would be rude not too. See you soo Pip and Alec x

No, the information provided was spot on and the Rights could not have been more welcoming, helpful and informative..
June 2018
Very comfortable place to stay and ideal location.. The owners were very helpful. The noise from the fridge turning on may be a nuisance to light sleepers but it wasn't much of a problem for us. Small point, could do with another saucepan (only one there) if you were going to do a lot of self-catering. Really a great place to stay if you are aiming to eat out most of the time. We would certainly stay there again.

Hi this was a lovely, bespoke studio with well thought out features and fittings and very friendly, helpful owners.. I wouldn't book it again due to the fact I am a very light sleeper and the storage heaters resulted in the fridge being very noisy at night as it tried to maintain it's temperature and the meter in the kitchen cupboard emitting a very loud 'clunk' every few seconds! The storage heaters made it quite difficult to control the temperature too. A real shame as the area has a couple of nice walks, useful local amenities including a gastro pub which served delicious and inexpensive fare. It's also just 90 mins drive to The Lakes.
Mr Robinson
September 2017
Lovely spot in a lovely village with very friendly hosts.. Nothing was any bother for them and went out of their way to make us welcome. One niggle was the noise the fridge made on a night, but easily resolved, turn it off until the morning ! Ha ha ! Very pleased.

Ms Hayes

The accommodation was extremely comfortable and the location was a perfect base for exploring the dales.. We particularly enjoyed the village and the fact that it was 'off the beaten track' for tourists compared to some others in the area.

The Friendly Room is a lovely little place situated near some fantastic walking routes in the Dales. The owners were so welcoming when we arrived and have really thought of everything to make it an enjoyable stay. I'd recommend it to friends and family, very impressed.
Mrs Froy

Liked the cosiness of everything being in one room. The weather was sunny but freezing and The Friendly Room was a delight to come home to and find warm and welcoming. It was a lovely break for four nights and just what we needed.
Mr Fox

Lovely comfy Room with everything you need for a chill-out break. In a convenient location in a lovely village with the 'Game Cock' pub round the corner serving lovely bistro food. Great scenic walks on your doorstep or within easy travelling distance. The owners have taken care to make 'The Friendly Room' a lovely place for a break.

The buzz of the Tour de France presence! The stunning scenery, friendliness of the Yorkshire people, superb location with so many options. Great accommodation with friendly, helpful owner/hosts and great weather.

We liked the cleanliness and sunny atmosphere of the cottage, and the welcoming, friendly owners. They were helpful and accommodating, without being intrusive.
Mr Hunter

We had great stay in this studio cottage. It was very comfortable. Located in a quiet village, but with great access to both the Dales and the eastern district of the Lakes and Morecambe Bay.
Mr Uden

Cottage was modern and stylish. A really good location, and our hosts were extremely friendly and helpful. Everything was really great, no complaints at all.

A beautiful place to stay, with the Yorkshire Dales just around the corner.
April 2013
The Friendly Room is a studio apartment of above average quality well suited for a couple. The interior is quite modern with plenty of light and room. The location is just off the main road through the village, but as the village is itself off the a65, it remains pretty quiet all the time. Austwick is well situated for walks in Three Peaks country either straight from the cottage, or as a base for other places such as Settle, Horton, Clapham, and Ingleton. There is a pub and general store in the village, and a restaurant across the road. A walk of a mile takes you to a super café/bistro in the hamlet of Feizor. I would recommend this property to a couple who enjoy walking and wish to explore the area.
November 2012
The Friendly Room was just that. We felt welcome and warm after some wet walks in the hills. A marvellous walking centre for Ingleborough area with fine walks starting from the front door without using a car. The owners are discreet and friendly offering a cream tea welcome and all the local advice you need. The studio room is practical and stylish - the oven is a complete microwave/grill/convection appliance - much better than the advertising suggests! Perfect for a romantic stay.

The location is excellent for accessing the Dales. The property was clean and modern. The local pub food is that good that we didn't need to cook.

Mr Akam

We particularly liked the small patio area overlooking the countryside which caught the sun. Although it was March all the time we were there the sun shone. Very lucky!
January 2012
Comfortable, warm, clean, etc. friendly owners and scenic. Fantastic area for walking and cycling and geocaching. We would like to return sometime and we would recommend The Friendly Room to everybody.
December 2011
Although it is literally one room, this accommmodation has been extremely well designed. The bespoke kitchen has everything you need in a compact space and the living/bedroom area is very comfortable. The village is unspoilt with a shop, pub and hotel/restaurant and there are lovely walks from the door.
Mrs Oconnor
November 2011
We found the cottage cosy and ideal for us and the locality of the cottage to many walks and cycle routes and places to visit was also ideal. The owners were very friendly also.
Mrs Brown
October 2011
Excellent location with walking and cycling from the door - we didn't use the car once. Very friendly and helpful owners. Well equipped so you could choose to eat in or use one of the two good eating places in the village.
Mrs Teason
September 2011
Our hosts were exceptionally friendly, helpful and generous. The cottage is perfectly located in the lovely village of Austwick, and we enjoyed our many walks around the countryside as well as excellent dinners at both the Game Cock pub and the Traddock Hotel. We didn't have a car, but it was no problem to catch the local bus into Settle for market day, where we got wonderful provisions for cooking back at our cottage. We also caught the Settle to Carlisle train up to Carlisle, a beautiful trip.
Mr Smith
September 2011
I thought the accommodation was very well equipped, without cluttering the fresh, modern decor. There were thoughtful touches which shows the owner's attention to detail. Austwick is a very pretty and friendly village, well situated for walking in the western Dales, but also within easy range of all of the Yorkshire Dales, the Forest of Bowland and even the South Lakes.
