Woodlands is the most beautiful place, we enjoyed our stay here so much! Waking up to the views after a good nights sleep and then wondering around the utterly picturesque village was just perfect! We also really enjoyed the food at the local bub at the bottom of the road. We loved this place so much it was really hard to leave and we'll definitely be back again next year!

Great space for a big family get together. We had a mixed group from aged 8 to 75. An easy walking distance into Settle, where there are some nice shops, cafes and pubs. The views from the house were amazing. And some good walks close by. Overall great value.

We stayed at Woodlands as a large family group (including two children) to celebrate a special birthday. Woodlands was perfect for us! Everyone across all age ranges loved the house and the space. The birthday girl chose the room with the 4 poster bed and loved it! The location of the house is a short walk into town and the surrounding scenery is beautiful. And David was great to deal with. We are looking at ways to go back! Thanks again David, Natasha.

We had a great Christmas family gathering at this house and highly recommend for anyone looking to do walks in the Dales. With some basic upgrades in the kitchen supplies this property makes an ideal holiday gathering place.

A last minute break from Leeds with my partner. The house was everything I expected and much more: tasteful, relaxing and spotless. We particularly enjoyed the fire in the cosy Edwardian sitting room. Our room had a fantastic free standing cast iron bath and uninterrupted views out over the Yorkshire Dales. Settle and Giggleswick have many great value eateries. We ended up having a lovely meal together in the Golden Lion. I hope to revisit!

Have just stayed in this amazing country house. David met us briefly and and let us choose which room we liked, we plumped for the four poster with its en suite bathroom. The house is a real experience, beautifully decorated and furnished, it felt like we were in an Agatha Christie film. The big farmhouse style kitchen is fully equipped, and we had fun eating dinner in the huge dining room…..not quite at each end of the huge table but we certainly got to feel like the Lords of the manor. Then there’s a lovely panelled sitting room with a real fire to relax in and enjoy. In the morning we had breakfast and enjoyed the terrace looking out across the green and beautiful valley, before setting off on a lovely walk to Stainforth waterfalls. The footpaths start right next to the house. Woodlands is superb, what a find, I can't recommend it enough and hope to be able to go back and enjoy it all again.

Thank you so much for letting my family stay at your incredible home. A truly beautiful house in a stunning location - the house was the ideal setting for a family celebration. All the rooms were clean, comfortable and beautifully decorated. The house was charming, warm and huge!! David was a wonderful host, he met us on arrival and then left us to it, he was speedy in his response to emails, he even left a bottle of milk in the fridge for us! We really enjoyed our stay and we hope to return again in the future!

I fell in love with the Yorkshire Dales and Giggleswick in 2005, spending most weekends here since. I found Woodlands in 2009.

When I'm not looking after the house I'm in the great outdoors walking, running, on the bike or just hanging out with my dog Chip.

If you're a runner I'm usually up for a trip round the fells.
