A beautiful cottage and perfect for a short break. Comfy beds, tastefully furnished with such a lovely welcome pack and fresh flowers on arrival. Bankwell Cottage is within walking distance of some great pubs, shops and eateries with a swimming pool just 5 mins walk for those rainy days. It’s a perfect base for exploring both Cumbria and the Dales with some super walks on it’s doorstep.
We had a lovely stay at Bankwell. Every home essential was provided. Even the dog had a little welcome pack with towels, body spray, bowls and treats. We arrived a little early but were greeted with a warm welcome by the cleaner. Carol then poped over to introduce us to the cottage and provide us with some more towels. As we had our 15mth daughter with us Carol got out some toys, which she loved playing with. The location is excellent as a base for exploring the Yorkshire dales. You can walk into Settle if you wish and on Tuesday it's market day which was great for picking up some local sausages and eggs for breakfast.
The cottage itself has all the mod cons you would need and is decorated tastefully. The back garden was great for pooch as all in closed. Whilst literally 3mins from the cottage is a field you can walk dogs on, they have to be on a lead. But that was fine for our dog. It was so quiet at the cottage you can just sit and unwind with no distractions. Or if you like to explore, you're a 10min drive from the dales and all it has to offer.
We would definitely return no question.
Wonderful cosy cottage, fantastically equipped, everything has been thought of in the cottage and the small courtyard back garden is a little suntrap. The location is perfect for all , local pubs just a short stroll and Settle is only a short walk away too. Second visit already and we will be back !! Thank you x
Bankwell Cottage is perfectly located in the village of Giggleswick. We were planning to walk the Three Peaks and could not have found a more convenient place to stay. The cottage is beautiful, spacious and had everything you could possibly need. We stayed for 3 nights and only ventured out on one evening as we were so comfortable - home from home! I would highly recommend the Harts Head pub in Giggleswick which is a short walk from the cottage; the food was excellent. Thank you Carol for your hospitality - we will be back!
Excellent pet-friendly cottage in Giggleswick. Bankwell cottage was spotlessly clean with modern furnishings and comfortable beds. The garden was fully enclosed and perfect for our 2 small dogs. Often gardens are described as enclosed but in reality, they have hedges or fencing that only keep larger dogs in, not the case here! Carol, the owner was really welcoming and left a lovely welcome basket with essentials and Easter treats! Lovely walks from the doorstep and pubs within close walking distance. Have no worries about booking this delightful cottage, it really is superb!
