Woodlands was built in 1905 as a gentlemen’s country residence. It sits at the end of a quiet road ten minutes walk from picturesque Giggleswick village in the Yorkshire Dales National Park. The enchanting Lord’s Wood borders the house to the west and there are spectacular views from the terrace over the Ribble Valley to the east. A 15 minute walk down The Mains takes you to the pretty market town of Settle, with shops, restaurants, cafes and pubs, as well as a theatre and swimming pool.

I fell in love with the Yorkshire Dales and Giggleswick in 2005, spending most weekends here since. I found Woodlands in 2009 and finally moved here in 2011. When I'm not looking after the house I'm in the hills walking, running, on the bike or just hanging out with my dog Chip.
David purchased this House in 2009
Why David chose Giggleswick
Woodlands is definitely a balance of both both worlds - it's on the edge of the village of Giggleswick - leave by the back door and there is nothing by the Yorkshire Dales National Park. Walk down the drive at the front and Settle is only twenty minutes walk - shops, cafes, pubs.

A great weekend
We had a lovely time in Giggleswick. The house was superb, with a well stocked kitchen and plenty of space. Excellent location for walks and amenities... couldn’t recommend it enough.
Beautiful house and an amazing setting
The rental process was straight forward. Beautiful period property well looked after and an amazing setting. The perfect backdrop to creating some special family memories!!
Perfect for work retreat
Highly recommended as a great venue for work meetings/retreats.
We had a wonderful time here 12adults for a 70th birthday and a murder mystery week. Walking distance to pub and shops, no one disturbed us and house was magnificent, a credit to the owner. Would highly recommend.
