Bridle Cottage is a stone build property on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales in Settle, with a warming and inviting atmosphere and character features from the beamed ground floor and exposed stone interiors.
Upon entering, guests are greeted to a light and bright sitting area, with cosy seating and an operating wood burning stove, with a small dining table towards the side. On the first floor is a spacious kitchen with all modern appliances, as well as the master bedroom, which can be switched to a twin layout on request.
On the second floor are two further bedrooms, a twin layout and a smaller cot room. The house is completed by a modern fitted bathroom.
Bridle Cottage is ideally situated to venture into the Dales and embrace country life, as soon as you leave from the doorstep. Settle itself is a homely town with plenty to offer, including its market square and number of pubs for a quiet drink.
The many attractions of the Dales and the Lakes are easily commutable from Bridle Cottage, if you want to explore the area further, including the Three Peaks. A perfect location for walks, bike rides, canal tours and bird watching, Settle is also home to the Settle to Carlisle Railway line.
relaxing enjoyable holiday
We stayed for a week in Settle. We enjoy walking and this location is central to some great walks, especially the 3 peaks. The cottage is lovely and a minutes walk from the centre of the town. There are some lovely places to eat and both Booths and the railway station are close by, as is a large car-park. The cottage was spotless, well equipped and comfortable, with the owner obviously having a lovely sense of style.
A really pleasant place to stay.
A delightful property in an absolutely ideal location in the centre of Settle. Convenient for grocery shopping, the few restaurants, and pubs in the town.
The cottage was well catered with all the items you would require for a long weekend. The only draw back for us was the fact that there were no doors therefore it was difficult to contain the dog although she thought the fire was put there for her only. It was fortunate that we had her cage to constrain her during the night.
The cottage was superbly positioned that although right in the center of town and yet so quiet at night
access to wonderful walks straight from the doorstep.
It is definitely a place I would return to.
Great place to stay, and explore.
So here goes. We loved the place. Settle is our one place to go in England. We have traveled around the country and it is marvelous. But nothing beats returning to Settle for the rest and relaxation. We again spent only one week there and afterwards asked ourselves why we keep doing that. During the week we say a live play, a jazz night an evening of folk music, and explored the area. Bridle cottage has everything and extras just in case. Out the front door and one hundred, +/-, you are in the village, although you would not know it from the inside of the cottage which is so quiet and comfortable. And when we were traveling back through the town later we walked by the cottage and there was work being down to upgrade the fireplace, (not sure why). A bit of advice for car owners, pay for park and pay immediately as the meter maid is always close at hand, my mistake. And next time I am there I will phone ahead with my order for more sunshine.
Quiet and cosy cottage perfectly situated down a lane off the bustling High Street and Market Square. So convenient for the excellent bakers, Booths supermarket, pubs and cafes. Settle has wonderful hill and river walks in all directions and it was a pleasure to come back to the warm and well-appointed cottage at the end of a busy day.
We travelled again to Settle, this time with my wife's parents. And the only drawback is I wished we would have booked a longer stay. Settle as always was wonderful and more than met with my in-laws expectations.
Comfortable and Surprisingly Spacious
Bridle Cottage is a comfortable and attractive stone cottage on three floors. It is conveniently located down a back street in the middle of Settle, just a few yards off the market square, meaning that all of the shops/amenities which Settle has to offer are within very easy reach. The house itself is surprisingly spacious, especially for the money, and includes an upstairs study (perfect for writing postcards in peace). The kitchen is rather small, but contains everything which is essential to holiday catering, including things which are sometimes overlooked, such a as cafetiere. The front room contains a log-burning stove, which is easy to use and earns the property its tick in the 'romantic getaway' box.
One limitation is that the front room is rather overlooked by passing pedestrians, which means that you have to choose between privacy and having the curtains closed whilst you are in during the daytime. Also, the plastic windows don't particularly suit the traditional stone construction of the house and give a certain cheapness to a house which otherwise verges on the luxurious.
Our holiday was done by train, so I can't vouch for the parking arrangements.
A great base for exploring the Yorkshire Dales
Excellent accommodation - just round the corner from all the shops & yet you can open the door and be on lovely walks in 5 minutes
Warm & cosy and very comfortable
Massive beds & good facilities
Lovely cottage in a great location
We stayed in Bridle Cottage in November. We loved it from the moment we arrived. The living room is warm and cosy with the log fire, and the whole house was clean and comfortable.
Settle is lovely with its unique shops and traditional pubs and the cottage is right in the centre of it all.
We enjoyed four days of walking with our dog, it was a bit chilly so Bridle Cottage was the perfect place to warm up and have a mulled wine in the afternoons.
The house was immaculate, well equipped and clean.The beds were gorgeous and comfy and the whole house is finished and furnished to a very high standard. The house is very close to local amenities and central for shops, pubs and cafes, being just off the Market Square
The cottage was spotlessly clean and very nice throughout. Excellent walks from the doorstep - recommend walking over to Malham and back. We had a really nice break, thank you.
Cottage was really lovely, very cosy, light and beautiful decor. Very easy for people to have a holiday here without a car - excellent for train line and local bus (little red bus) was great too.
Central but quiet. Very clean and well equipped, comfortable cottage.
The location of Bridle Cottage was perfect for us - just off the main street, with parking and the train station close by. The cottage was spotless and very tastefully decorated. Well done!
The location of the cottage is really good. It's in the centre of Settle which is a really nice little town with shops and supermarkets for all your daily needs.
To have secured Bridle Cottage at the last minute was so fortunate for us - the place was wonderful
The location and the standard of the cottage were perfect for everything that we required for our holiday.
The property was close to all amenities as well as close to the attractions we were interested in visiting. We had a very good time in Yorkshire and the children really enjoyed it. The surrounding beauty was truly relaxing.
The cottage was very cosy and warm and centrally located. It was very handy for shops. Settle has lots of nice eateries, especially The Lion. We also love Booths supermarket for the self-catering aspect.
This is a lovely terraced house in the heart of Settle. It was spotlessly clean and very comfortable.
There was a lovely village feel to the place with very friendly people.
Settle is a lovely place and the cottage was in a good central location. The surrounding countryside is beautiful and easily accessed by train or bus. We'd brought our dog and there were plenty of places to walk with him, and we used public transport with him quite easily.
Very close to the centre of Settle. Good supermarkets, Booths especially. A lovely cricket ground and enjoyable local concerts.
The cottage and the location within the town were excellent.

Central location, comfortable and clean cottage.
A lovely property, and we really enjoyed our stay there.
A wonderful find! We particularly liked the position in Central Settle. The bed was amazing - 7ft wide and so comfortable, I have never slept so well on holiday! We loved the wood burning stove, and the well equipped kitchen. We made full use of the excellent cooker, preparing most of our evening meals at home. The extra touches of fresh eggs, milk, coffee, tea bags & biscuits were so thoughtful - a lovely welcome. We will definitely recommend to our friends.
This was the second time we've stayed here. The location is fantastic. The cottage itself is very well appointed and spotlessly clean. It felt very homely and warm. We would come back in the future.
Settle is a wonderful location, especially for people who (like us) don't have a car. It has good transport links and good amenities. The house was comfortable, well furnished, and excellently situated close the the centre of Settle, near to both the shops and the station.
It was quiet, comfortable, attractive and close to everything. We could walk everywhere, and spent considerable time doing so. We love Settle; we once spent a month there 28 years ago and have always wanted to go back again; we were not disappointed. This time we really saw it and although it had changed, it was still the same: friendly, busy (not just with walkers, however, but with bicyclists and many other tourists) with a very good tourist office. This time we spent more time in the town, enjoying the pubs, taking nearby walks, and just chatting with the inhabitants. Best of all: the Dales are still as beautiful as they were 28 years ago and you can still find areas that are un-crowded.
In a central position with endless places to visit. The Cottage was spotlessly clean & comfortable and the welcome pack was thoughtful. The owner was a pleasure to meet and was very informative. All in all, an excellent holiday.
A cosy cottage over 3 floors, loved the real fire and location so close to the train station in Settle.
A lovely cottage in a perfect location - thank you.
