Alison & P,

What a special place to bring in the new decade with our nearest and dearest. The cottage is beautiful, cosy & festive and our guests were amazed at the setting. New Year's Day was spent relaxing by the fire after a trip up Pen-y-Ghent. A very memorable couple of days x

We had a wonderful time in this suoer cottage. Malham Cove and the limestone pavement was fantastic. Pen-y-Ghent a fabulous walk from the front door. The Golden Lion in Settle and Buck Inn, Malham are both super places to eat and drink. Thanks!

A beautiful old huge farmhouse in a perfect setting. Walks in every direction. Despite the rain the cottage is cosy and warm. Loved it all.

Nice, cosy cottage with lots of room. Good area to go exploring from. Got some good pictures of the steam train over the Ribble Viaduct. Not enough days to see everything. Will have to come back.

Lovely character cottage in a fantastic location. We did manage two of the three peaks with our seven year old twins and 13 year old daughter. Must do the railway to and from Appleby. Very cosy and comfortable stay. Thank you.

Lovely warm and clean house.

Previous Customer,

A wonderful cottage for walking - Pen Y Ghent and Ingleborough from the door. We also caught the train to Ribblehead and walked back. Cottage is beautiful - never change it.

I really enjoyed the lovely warm and comfy house. We walked the Three Peaks around Malham town and explored Ingleborough caves. Friendly barman at the Golden Lion, roaring fire, pool table. A fantastic holiday for the whole family.

The Broughton family,


Area Information

Horton-in-Ribblesdale is a village located within the Yorkshire Dales National Park and is close to the source of the River Ribble. A popular base for walkers, many of whom are completing the Yorkshire 3 Peaks, Pen-y-Ghent, Ingleborough and Whernside.  Being within the limestone area of the Yorkshire Dales Horton-in-Ribblesdale is also popular with cavers, pot-holers and anyone looking for stunning countryside.  
The village has two traditional pubs, The Crown lies right on the Pennine Way and welcomes weary travellers with log fires, local ales, as does the Golden Lion which has stone flagged floors in the bar area especially for those with muddy boots and muddy paws. You will find the celebrated Pen-y-Ghent cafe and shop in the centre of Horton. It is known as the official start and timing point for the Three Peaks Walk because of the old ticket punching machine inside. A short drive away are the popular market towns of Settle and Ingleton, each having plenty of quirky shops, tea rooms and Dales pubs.
