Bridleways Cottage Family Cottage description

Holiday home
Bridleways Cottage is a charming end-terraced cottage in the hamlet of Far Westhouse, two miles from Ingleton. The cottage has a king-size double room and a twin. There is a house bathroom and an additional cloakroom in theutility. The kitchen has a breakfast area, and in the sitting room is an open fire and a dining area. Outside, the cottage offers beautiful gardens with furniture, and off road parking for one car. Bridleways Cottage is a wonderful base for couples or families to take in the splendid scenery, pretty villages and wonderful walks of the area.

The attractive village of Ingleton is nestled beneath Ingleborough, one of the famous ‘Three Peaks' on the western edge of the Yorkshire Dales National Park. Offering a wide range of shops, pubs and places to eat, the winding streets of this pretty village all converge on a central market place. A mile outside of Ingleton and down the Hawes road are the well known White Scar Caves. Open to the public, these caves display a huge number of caverns full of stalactites and stalagmites, with one cave home to a huge underground lake. The superb ‘Falls Walk' offers an interesting circuit which takes in some of the impressive cascading waterfalls of the area whilst the proximity to both the Yorkshire Dales and the Lake distract make this an excellent place for walkers.

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?

Our hosts communicated well with us and extended a warm welcome. The cottage was exactly what we were looking for. Very conveniently place for the Yorkshire three peaks and with the lakes only half hour away we found more than enough to fill our weekend. An excellent stay and would recommend to anyone who is looking for a nice retreat.

A fatastically well appointed holiday cottage, everything was there a real home from home country cottage, beautiful kitchen dinner area made cooking meals a real pleasure and on a morning looking out onto the well stocked garden a real pleasure. I would have no hesitation in recommending this property we thoroughly enjoyed it .

We loved everything about the cottage,the location,walks around the area, the sun trap in the garden for a quiet read and relax. The cottage is finished to a high standard especially the new kitchen.

The property had a very well equipped and pleasant kitchen. The double bed was very comfortable and the linen was good quality. The property is in a good location for visiting the many attractions in this lovely area of countryside. It was also very quiet - some daytime noise from the A65 road nearby but this did not cause any disturbance at night.

The cottage was very clean, comfortable well equipped as well as being tastefully furnished. Very well placed for visiting the Dales especially for walking.
Ms Hailwood

Had a lovely weekend away in this beautiful cottage. It was very well equipped with a real 'home from home' feel. The cottage was a fantastic base to come back to after exploring the local countryside, especially with the open fire. Would definitely recommend to anyone wanting a relaxing break in the Yorkshire Dales.

Mr Treloar

We greatly enjoyed our stay in this very comfortable cottage, with its beautiful garden and views. There were lots of interesting places to visit nearby and some great walking in the surrounding area. For those who like to eat out there are plenty of choices for excellent food in nearby Kirkby Lonsdale.

The cottage is lovely and with quite easy access from M6 and A65. Well situated, within easy reach of the Dales and the Lakes too. It is very well equipped, cosy and clean. It is a shame we couldn't really make use of the garden (December stay!) as one can easily imagine spending summer afternoons/evenings there in front of a BBQ. It's really beautiful and very well kept!

Bridleways Cottage is a beautiful property and we couldn't have asked for a better location. The cottage is in the beautiful Yorkshire Dales with Lake District being a 30 minute drive away. The area is really peaceful. I enjoyed every minute of my holiday.

A charming, peaceful, cosy cottage. Very impressed with the standard of decor, the cleanliness and the lovely welcome. Enjoyed a wonderful week in a fabulous part of the country. Ideally located away from main centre but close to a multitude of things to do, places to see, walks etc. The most comfortable beds ever experienced in a holiday let. Would recommend.
Mrs Walkden

Mrs Stagg
May 2014
The cottage is furnished to the very highest standard, beautifully decorated and everything was immaculate. A welcome pack was waiting for us when we arrived which was most welcome and we felt at home immediately. The views from the windows and the garden were amazing and we loved sitting at the top of the garden enjoying a cup of coffee listening to the birds, so peaceful.
Mr Ratcliffe
May 2014
This holiday, in such a magnificent area, was enhanced by the beautiful cottage. Bridleways is so well presented and furnished to a very high standard. Everything possible had been thought of, this indeed is a home from home, not just a holiday flop. A credit to the owners and is excellent value. The surrounding area just kept supplying wonderful views and treasures. We would have no reservations about returning and rebooking Bridleways.
Mr Gibbs

High standard of preparation of the property. Obviously well cared for by someone with an eye for detail.
Mr Willerton

The cottage was lovely, everything was catered for and it was very, very clean throughout . The surrounding area has easy access to some very nice walks. Ingleton itself is a lovely place to visit and the Carven Heifer is a must for home cooked food.

Beautiful cottage in a wonderful location. The garden was stunning, a real cottage garden! The house was wonderful, spotlessly clean upon our arrival, and very well equipped with all you needed and more. Had a wonderful, relaxing time
Mr Gill

Bridleways Cottage is ideally situated for exploring the North Yorkshire Dales. The cottage is well equipped and the gardens are ideal for sitting in and eating out. Plenty of walks nearby which meant that use of a car was kept to a minimum. Neighbours very friendly and welcome.
Mrs Pearson
February 2013
The cottage was great. The welcome card and tray set the scene when we arrived. As we then went through the cottage and found everything as described and pictured on your website, we were very happy. The kitchen was very well equipped with high quality pans, crockery and utensils etc. The complementary wood/kindling meant we were able to make use of the open fire on the day we arrived. We now have some lovely memories of our stay. Thank you.
Mrs Bright
August 2013
The cottage was ideally based for visiting both Yorkshire and the Lake District so two beautiful areas in one go. The furniture, beds and even the garden furniture was of an excellent standard and so comfy! Therefore after a lot of cottage holidays not only would we recommend Bridleways Cottage, but would be happy ourselves to return in the future (a first for us). The surrounding villages had plenty of great tea-rooms too!!!

this is one of the best cottages we have stayed in and we often holiday in cottages in this country. it is in a beautiful area. The cottage is very well-appointed and has everything you need for a relaxing stay. it is lovely and warm, furnished beautifully and has a very modern well equipped kitchen whilst the rest of the house has beautiful fire places with an open fire and oak beams. beds are extremely comfortable and the whole place was spotlessly clean. garden is a beautiful cottage garden with a patio and seating area at the top overlooking fields. all in all a fabulous place to stay, would highly recommend

My wife and I have stayed in many holiday cottages in the past , but this one stands out as by far the best so far. The entire cottage is beautifully appointed and comfortable with wonderful attention to detail. Indeed the cottage is a credit to the owners and we would have no reservations about staying here again. Staying here really enhanced our visit to this remarkable area.

Had a lovely week in this very old picturesque cottage. Very pretty garden but unfortunately we couldn't sit out in it due to the weather. It did get very cold in the evenings/nights so the fire and extra jumpers and blankets and hot water bottles were needed. The cottage was spotlessly clean and the owner had left us a lovely welcome pack of fresh free range eggs and local milk which were much appreciated. Superb location with wonderful views and ideal for visiting both the dales and the Lake district. We found the double bed very hard and uncomfortable but that's just personal choice as we are used to a soft mattress. Only complaint was the shower over the very narrow bath ... It was just a trickle! But appreciate that it is an old cottage and still has its original bathroom. Lovely bright modern well equipped kitchen and dining room though in contrast. With a more modern bathroom and comfier beds and warmer weather it would have been 100% perfect! As it is I would rate it 85%.

We know and love the area around Kirkby Lonsdale so the location was excellent - just off the main road, but definitly rural with walking oppertunities from the door and good views of Ingleborough even if you do not fancy climbing it. Pub ( with wifi and food) 15 mins walk. Shops, Pubs, Resturants, Markets and Supermarkets in Kirkby Lonsdale and Settle - max 20 min drive ( see my other reviews) The cottge is as pretty as it looks in the pictures and there is a pleasing attention to detail in things like cushions and flowers. Very well equipped kitchen.The rooms are spacous.Beds and chairs comfy. The garden would be lovely in the summer months - a real old fashioned cottage garden. So -it could be delightful, and I am sure it is in the summer. Why the low score ? We were freezing the whole stay, and this completely detracted from our comfort.. The property had been empty for several weeks and it was the coldest spring in living memory, so we realise conditions were unusual. When we arrived the cottage was perishing ! I wont go into details about the extent of the cold because its boring, but on phoning the owner the next day to say it was unacceptable the initial response was ' I dont know what I can do' and a denial there had been problems before - the visitors book records at least 2 other families having been cold. We agreed to keep the fire on for 24 hours and she brought over a heater at our request. The cottage did warm up a bit after 48 hours, but we were all relieved to get back to our central heating on return home (and we are the sort of people to wear jumpers etc indoors) . The problem in this cottage is the lack of proper central heating - it is night storage only. The cootage is old - thick stone walls and exposed in aspect. When it is really cold the heaters do not warm up sufficiently, and there is always the problem that they are at thier coldest in the late afternoon/early evening, just when you want to return to a warm cottage having been out all day. The fire does help but it is not practical , or safe, to have it on all day when you are out and about , never mind the fact you are being charged extra for fuel for what is essential and localised heating - our daughter wanted to study at the dining table but could never use it for long because she got so cold even with the fire blazing at the other end of the room. So - all in all - recommended but not for winter . A bit disappointed in sykes - have been to several of thier other properties without a problem but not a peep from them re this !

This was our second visit to Bridleways and we enjoyed the location with views over the hills and the comfort of the cottage. It was an easy walk to the nearest pub and a cafe is only another 5 minutes away for lunch or tea.

Bridleways cottagemakes for a delightful stay, you have the lakes to the west with all there beauty and to the east the beautiful dales with all the views and walks they have to offer,the towns of Settle, Hawes, and Kendle in the Lakes are just a short drive away and not forgetting the lovely train journey from Settle to Carlisle. Investigate the history of making the railway then visit the little church of Chapel-Le-Dale where some of the workers,children nad families are now resting.The waterfalls at Ingleton are a must to visit take your time and enjoy the walk remember to take your boots. A shop and restuarant are close by with fuel and small super market and shops at Ingleton. If you want a lazy day just sit in the elivated rear garden with a drink of your choice listen to birds and marvel at the colour of the butterflies as they flit through the flowers. What did we like the best..Everything. Having enjoyed this holiday was all due to the expert help we recieved from Sykes holidays throughout. Jill and Derek Freeman.
