With plenty of space for 4 people the property offers new fixtures and fittings throughout with good WiFi for those who need to be connected. The cottage offers comfortable, homely accommodation. The sitting room has a multi-fuel stove, flat screen television with DVD player and Freeview. The kitchen is modern and very well equipped. The location is ideal for exploring the Dales or the Lake District and equally suited for those that want to switch off. Local amenities include a swimming pool, local shops, 9 hole golf course, weekly market, and a Booths supermarket. Fishing on the river Ribble is available with plenty of opportunity for other outdoor activities other than the abundance of good walking right outside the door. Malham Cove is a 20 minute drive away. Settle offers a variety of eating houses, curry, Chinese, traditional pubs and restaurants.

About Dr. Ian Jowett
We are a family of 4, my wife and 2 boys work and go to school locally. The cottage is their home during term time, apart from the summer term.
Dr. Ian Jowett purchased this Cottage in 2014
Why Dr. Ian Jowett chose Giggleswick
We bought Lychgate cottage in September 2013 as a second home. My wife works locally and our children go to the school near by. We wanted to create a home from home environment for term time and to save on a 2 hour daily commute. We've managed to achieve this by carefully decorating and refurbishing. Our cottage is only available during school holidays apart from the summer term.
What makes this Cottage unique
The location is great! Local pub just up the hill serving great food and great beers! Walking the dog is a a pleasure, lots of routes with great views of the surrounding hills and the River Ribble, starting from the front door. Settle with it's shops, Booths supermarket and weekly market offer great convenience in a friendly environment.

Well appointed and comfortable cottage
Charming cottage in village, very well equipped with quality beds and kichen equipment.
Beautiful good sized cottage and excellent location
We really enjoyed our stay at this traditional yet modern cottage. It was clean and beautifully presented with everything we needed. Our kids loved the quirkiness of the bedrooms. The weather was really warm when we were there but downstairs stayed really cool. I expect that’s due to the very thick old walls. Dogs are to be kept in the kitchen but a handy stair gate is provided to keep pooch downstairs. The village has a park and playing fields just a couple of minutes walk away and Settle is easily reached on foot. Lots of dog friendly pubs nearby. Great location for exploring the Dales. I would certainly recommend this to couples and families.
A very relaxing stay
We’ve just spent a week walking many trails in the area and were pleased to have this lovely cottage as our base. A charming 17th century cottage but with all the modern amenities. Set in a quiet village, with a good pub behind, but only minutes walk into Settle. We would definitely want to stay here again if we were in the area.
Rain? Who cares?
Lychgate Cottage is a delight. Quirky but very comfortable, it feels like a home for living in, not a rental cottage. Giggleswick and Settle are the friendliest of places, while the walks along the Ribble or up Castleberg are really satisfying, and as strenuous as you - or for us, our border collie - want them to be.The Settle-Carlisle railway extends these possibilities without resort to the car. We hope to return. Remember that few people visit the Yorkshire Dales for the weather, but the heavy rain at the start of our visit made the river, and the surrounding waterfalls spectacular.
A lovely welcoming cottage, kept to a high standard.We always love staying here.
We always love staying here, the cottage is always spotless but homely and welcoming.Ian and Carole could'nt be nicer or more helpful. Thanks to both of you.
Great family hilday
This is our second stay in this wonderful cottage. Perfect for our family of 2 active boys (and dog). The cottage is superbly equipped and so homely we relaxed straight away. Friendly pub, literally a stones' throw with real ales and good pub grub. Sweet little tuck shop over the road which the boys loved and just a short stroll into Settle itself which has all you would want; supermarkets, individual shops and pubs. There are great walks from Settle and nearby Malham; Ingleton and Clapham. Thanks again Ian and Carole - no doubt we will be back for a 3rd visit in the future.
