Quintessential Yorkshire cottage in the Three Peaks

We are delighted in this issue to feature Blindbeck Holiday Cottage with our Commitment to Excellence for 2024.

If you’re looking for a beautiful, homely cottage in the Yorkshire Dales, Blindbeck Cottage is suitable for families and groups of friends. The charming listed 17th century self-catering cottage is located near Horton-in-Ribblesdale at the traditional start of the Yorkshire Three Peaks. The three peaks of Pen-y-Ghent, Ingleborough and Whernside follow a circular path of 24 miles (38.6 km), with steep ascents and spectacular panoramic views along the way and is frequently a route for walkers raising money for charities. Other nearby attractions include the Settle to Carlisle railway, market town of Settle and Malham Cove.

The cottage is beautiful inside and out, with period stone exterior features and interior exposed oak beams offering a warm and welcoming stay. There is ample room inside with a kitchen, dining room, living room, downstairs shower and toilet, upstairs bathroom and three bedrooms upstairs (two double and one single). The cottage sleeps five people and the kitchen is kitted out with all the mod cons: fridge freezer, microwave, electric oven, toaster and washer/dryer.

There are stunning views of Ribblesdale and Pen-y-Ghent from the dining room, with complimentary wi-fi, bed linen, towels, heating, toilet rolls, washing-up liquid and tea towels. The large garden at the rear is perfect for sunbathing, BBQs, or just taking in the scenery.
