Hillfoot Pet-Friendly Cottage description

Holiday home
Situated in the small, unspoilt hamlet of Selside and about two and a half miles from Horton-in-Ribblesdale is this warm and welcoming cottage. This stone-built, semi-detached cottage was once a coaching inn and then a farmhouse and has now been carefully and tastefully refurbished to a high standard. The wood-burning stove and original timbers have been retained to give the property a cosy feel whilst the location, close to Three Peaks walking country, is bound to appeal to those who love the great outdoors.

The lovely hamlet of Selside, situated in the heart of the famous Three Peaks, is made up of traditional dwellings surrounding the village green. Full of excellent walking over fells and the famous Three Peaks - Pen-Y-Ghent, Whernside and Ingleborough - this area offers some of the most challenging paths in the country. Also close by is the Settle to Carlisle Railway, which passes directly through Selside and takes in some of the most beautiful and inspiring upland scenery the region has to offer. Completed in 1870 and only two miles away, the Ribblehead viaduct is a magnificent structure and well worth visiting. Nearby Horton boasts a lovely Norman church and two pubs whilst the market town of Settle offers a further range of amenities. Settle is also home to a pretty market square, a historic three storey building with shops on two levels as well as the Town Hall.

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?

Oil central heating with woodburning stoves. Electric oven, microwave, fridge, freezer, washer/dryer, TV, video, DVD, stereo/CD, WiFi. Fuel, power & initial supply of logs inc. in rent. Bed linen inc. in rent. Off road car-port parking for 1 car. Small paved patio area with garden furniture to side of house, overlooking stream. One well-behaved dog welcome. Sorry, no smoking. Shop 9 miles, pub 2.5 miles. Note: This property has a private water supply. Note: This property is located on the Horton to Ribblehead B road.

A lovely homely, warm cosy cottage. It was really welcoming and why we wish to go again! The surroundings are beautiful and because we choose this time of year, it is just wonderful to return to the cosy warmth of the wood burner in the kitchen and the lounge. Our family absolutely so look forward to returning. Thank you so much to the owners!

This is our 3rd visit to this cottage; the area is fantastic for walkers, cavers geocachers with an abundance of options available. We loved returning to this cosy cottage after being out in the wilds for the day. There have been several improvements since our last visit; a new roof, solid oak doors, new beds, furnishings blackout curtains which made our stay even more comfortable.

The location is wonderful, easy to get to so many different places such as Pen-y-Ghent Peak walk, Malham Cove, Ribblehead Viaduct Wensleydale cheese factory even Windermere! The cottage was warm, clean, cosy and welcoming, it felt like home. The whole environment is so picturesque that we felt we were living in a postcard. People who live in the village are very friendly and helpful which is certainly a bonus.
Mr Farnill

We wanted a cottage for walking the Three Peaks and surrounding area, and we booked Hillfoot Cottage at the last minute. We were really surprised at the quality and size of the cottage, everything that we needed was at hand.

Mrs Maden

Our 2nd visit we had another lovely short break. The warmth space in the cottage was most welcome after being out in chill factor winds! The beds are very comfy we slept very well. The cottage is very well arranged with lots of space.
Mrs Wreakes

Lovely cosy cottage. Everything you could need. Good food nearby in The Crown Hotel. Only thing missing was the sun!
Mrs Daniels
October 2012
It was a weekend break where the cottage was beautiful, weather lovely and the scenery. We would use this cottage again.
Mrs Maden
October 2012
A really well thought out cottage, especially for us as we had amble room to put our muddy boots and dry our caving equipment out without walking over carpets.
Miss Cawley

We liked the waterfall in garden, the scenery and how friendly the neighbours were.
Mrs Horstead

What a lovely cottage to spend Christmas in and very thoughtful to put a Christmas tree up for us! The wood burner added to the festive spirit.
Mrs Callaway
December 2011
We were 6 in total (Granny, Granpa, Mom, Dad 2 small children 2 6) and had a lovely stay at Hillfoot. The surrounding area is very beautiful and the cottage very comfortable with plenty of space. The amount of games, videos extras were a lovely surprise as we'd travelled from abroad and didn't have much with us. Hillfoot does not have the empty feel of a short term holiday rent, rather the home feel of a friends house. Very very clean comfortable. While I could easily have spent the holiday at the cottage it is very close (by car) to lots of excellent places to visit with small children A lovely lovely holiday, thanks.
Mrs Sheppard

A very warm and comfortable cottage, a real home-from-home

Mrs Webber

The cottage is conveniently placed for local hiking and use of the railway. The neighbours were very welcoming and suggested sights to see in case of bad weather. The scenery is spectacular. Locally made pies and cakes can be recommended.
Mr Hepworth
September 2011
I love the area around the cottage, and as often happens in North Yorkshire the weather was pretty bad, but the cottage made up for this in terms of cosiness and facilities. You can walk from the cottage in all directions and leave your car parked at the cottage.

A lovely relaxing place.
Mrs Palmer
May 2011
We were here on a long weekend and although the house is on the main road, it was a lovely location and there isn't much traffic. The house was just right for us and our 2 young boys. A lovely period property with wood fire in the lounge which is good fun. Lots of videos and games provided for the kids. Only a 10 minute drive to Ribblesdale for the 3 peaks walk.
Dr Rosenbaum

The cottage was clean and cosy and well located for our hikes. It's a nice place after a long walk in the hills. The neighbours are very friendly and helpful!
Mr Myott

The location was first rate. The cottage was well equipped.
Mr Hepworth
August 2010
This is an excellent cottage, in a superb location, the little hamlet of Selside. You can walk either east or west from the cottage itself on numerous walks, and there is excellent access to the North or South Dales. What a beautiful old stone cottage, which inside is very well equipped with all modern amenities, suitable for either summer or winter weather. And a delight to fetch fresh eggs each morning from the farm, and to see the hens roaming in open fields. Hillfoot is a gem and we hope to visit again in any season!
Mrs Holloway
July 2010
Very enjoyable stay. Very good walking area with great pubs nearby. 'Waterfall Walk' at Ingleton is worth a visit.
Mrs Boyce
March 2010
Our second visit to Hillfoot already says we love it. The cottage is delightful and tastefully decorated and furnished. Both our visits were in extreme cold weather and we found it really cosy to come 'home' to after some lovely walks locally.
Mrs Beard

Beautiful cottage in superb location. Well maintained and everything catered for even down to games, videos for the children on rainy days. Good selection of leaflets for ideas of where to go and what to see.

The cottage has well sized rooms and is well looked after. The kitchen/dining room is spacious. It is well situated for local hiking, particularly the Yorkshire Three Peaks.
Mr Sutherland

This was a wonderful cottage and the perfect setting for our Christmas holiday. The walking in the area is outstanding. We were delighted to find snow on the top of two of the three peaks.
Ms Fuller
June 2008
Hillfoot Cottage was lovely and good value for money. We found the location to be good too. A peaceful part of the Dales but not far from good walks and interesting places to visit. . A great area for birdwatching too. Overall we had a fantastic holiday and we were very pleased with the cottage; especially at how immaculately clean and tidy it was on our arrival.
Mr Buckland
September 2007
A lovely cottage in a lovely part of the country.
Dr Colson
January 2008
Gorgeous cottage, fantastic surroundings. We particularly liked the wood burning stove in the lounge and lit a fire whenever possible! Very lucky with the weather on the first day and walked Pen-y-Ghent, raining on day 2 so we went out anyway for another trek around the countryside before drying out in front of another fire - thoroughly relaxing weekend - we didn't want to leave! Thank you!
Rev Garner

Dr Dixon
January 2016
A lovely warm and cosy cottage in a great location, well situated for walking the Three Peaks of Yorkshire and exploring the beautiful countryside.
Mrs Egan
April 2015
The key safe worked very well and as a result less pressured for time. The goodies on arrival made us feel very welcome and served us well on the peaks. There were instructions left for all appliances which was useful and a good selection of kitchen tools and cleaning products. The beds were very comfortable and we found generally, the furnishings and finish first class. The neighbours were also very welcoming and gave ideas for local places. The walking route maps were very useful and it was great to be able to walk Ingleborough from the doorstep with no car!
Mrs Boyce
March 2015
We have been to Hillfoot several times which suffices to say we love it and its warmth and welcome. It is a beautiful cottage 'surrounded by a fabulous landscape..our family love every aspect and can't wait to return. Thank you to the Owners
Mr McIntyre

This was our first cottage let and we found the accommodation to be of a very good standard. We would not hesitate to return.
Mrs Bray
June 2007
A delightful cottage ideally located in the Dales, it was a pleasure to relax in after a day out. The cottage was well equipped and very clean so thanks to the owners and to Sykes. It was our 2nd time in a Sykes cottage and it won't be our last!
Mrs Karras

We had an excellent time, lots of information on local activities and walks. Appreciated the fact that dogs were welcome.
Mr Leigh

Excellent position for a walking holiday - able to walk each of the Three Peaks from the front door. Also close proximity to Malhamdale and drivable to other dales such as Wharfedale.
Mrs Ryan

The cottage is in excellent condition. Very clean. The location is fantastic. An open fire was a big plus. Lovely location and one of the best holidays ever.

Ms Johnson
October 2006
A pleasant cosy cottage, but spacious, too. A good level of furnishing and equipment generally. It was nice that salt and washing up liquid etc, and tea towels were left. Liked the overhead clothes airer in the kitchen - great for drying stuff out.
Miss Bavington

Miss Rowe

The cottage was in a great location and perfect for a relaxing getting away from it all break. Our dog really enjoyed it too, there were many walks with peaceful, breathtaking scenery. The service from Sykes was excellent and I will definitely be booking again with you soon.
Mr Curtis

The location of the cottage was excellent, as was the general state of repair/ decoration etc. Warm, dry and welcoming - didn't feel rented. Walks from the door are fantastic.

Logs in a basket by the fire and the overall feel of the cottage was very welcoming.
Mrs Mckay
December 2004
The cottage was lovely and in an ideal location for touring the Dales and Yorkshire. We had some lovely days out and enjoyed trips on the Settle to Carlisle railway. Bolton Abbey is a great place to spend a day - if the weather is good! The beer garden at The Crown in Horton is superb and the food was good value too. The Golden Lion in Settle was a great pub. Very good food and very friendly, helpful staff. Thank you for a great holiday.
May 2015
Clean, warm, well equipped kitchen. New carpets throughout. We appreciated using the wifi as there was no mobile signal in the valley. The fire was set ready to light in the woodburner and there was enough wood for a couple of evenings. The garden was just a very small patio at the side of the house. Parking was under a carport up a track in the property next door. The house was right on the main road through the village so we were woken up most mornings by gravel lorries thundering past!
October 2013
Very well informed of the facilities and surrounding area, pet and child friendly,if you stay inside! The front door and side exit were both very dangerous for pets and children due fast inconsiderate drivers both local and tourist.
November 2010
a lovely cottage. very comfortable. lots of space and everything working perfectly. the only downside was that the stereo didn't work; so no music for the week. garden is tiny, but that's not so important in such a beautiful area of the country.
March 2012
We stayed in the cottage over Christmas 2011. Checking in couldn't have been easier, great neighbours to assist. Parking for more than one car is an issue as there is only a car port ( on shared land ) for 1 car. Great cottage in a lovely setting, but a little quiet - no shops, no pub etc..the nearest are approx 2 miles away but for more 'civilisation' Settle is approx 6 miles away. If your into your walking or cycling then the location couldn't be better but sadly for us with an 8 year old child there wasn't enough to keep us occupied, lovely cottage though, very clean.
September 2010
Overall very good clean cottage. Only down side was no clean bed linen left for second week, and road outside of cottage was very noisey with large lorries coming through very early in the morning which alway woke us up, then at weekends we had lots of motor bikes.
June 2010
A very nicely appointed cottage with some character.Easy to use appliances and plenty of crockery etc.Our concerns about the road were quickly dispelled didn't hear the traffic after the first night/early morning lorry only once.As their is no mobile signal and an intermittent public phone box it would have been useful to know the nearest phone.The Settle to Carlisle railway is not to be missed.We would definely consider booking a cottage through Sykes again
April 2010
The cottage was very well equipt and clean, however the weather was very cold during our stay and there was insufficient heating in the kitchen/diner. Also the woodburing stove would not stay alight, you need to put coal on it and there if a note requesting that you did not do this. I also think before you rent the cottage you should be advised that huge lorries thunder past the window from about 5.00am from the quarry up the road.
December 2009
We were most impressed when we arrived at Selside. The cottage was larger than we expected, yet had character and charm and felt very cosy. We particularly enjoyed the large kitchen/diner. The cottage was spotless and contained everything we needed for our holiday - including information about places to see. The hamlet itself is small and pretty. We had an early evening stroll the night we arrived just to take in the scenery. The cottage is on the main road, so lorries rumbling past tended to wake us in the morning, and you'd have to be careful with children/pets as the front door opens directly onto the road. These are minor considerations though. Overall, we were delighted with the cottage and had a memorable stay.
December 2009
Excellent service received from Sykes, easy to book and e-mail contact kept leading up to our stay. Good directions provided and we found the cottage easily enough. The cottage was all we expected and more, like home from home with all mod cons. Spacious bedrooms and the kids had more than enough room to explore. My only criticism is that as the cottage is located on the main road we were woken with the noise of lorries trundling past at 5.30am some mornings. Located close to Settle where found local supermarket and plenty of places to eat. Ingleton a nice little village to visit and Ingleton Falls a wonderful walk. My family enjoyed a superb week in this cottage and the surrounding area.
