Bankwell cottage is a real gem and due to the success of its sister Sunnybeck, it won't disappoint! The cottage is spacious with 3 large double beds (twin room and 2 double bedrooms). The cottage is close to the village just a 5 min stroll and Settle a 15 min walk away. Set in a row of pretty cottages it benefits from a private courtyard rear garden, lovely front garden, off street parking and a secure bike store. This offers the opportunity to relax and unwind or explore the Yorkshire Dales either on foot or cycle. Settle to Carlisle railway is close by with regular trains to Leeds. The cottage has internet access and towels and bedding are all included. The market town of Settle has many good pubs and restaurants and also Skipton is a 25 min drive away. There is so much to explore! If you fancy a round of golf the municipal course is on your doorstep and for the younger visitors, there are plenty of parks and playgrounds and of course ducks to feed. A perfect base!

About CAROL ROBERTSON
My family and I moved to the Yorkshire Dales in 2000 from Brighton and fell in love with the whole area! We bought Sunnybeck in Giggleswick as a bolthole and decided to holiday let the cottage to friends and family which turned out to be a very popular and we purchased Bankwell a year later. We manage all our own properties and live in the area so we meet and greet all our guests and are on hand at all times if needed! We offer a completely personal service and cater for everything from dog walking, babysitting, home cooked meals on arrival, pick up from the station, we even have a tour guide (he is a real historian!). We are unique and feel all the personal touches are taken care
CAROL ROBERTSON purchased this Cottage in 2010
Why CAROL ROBERTSON chose Giggleswick
Bankwell cottage was purchased in 2010 and I decided to refurbish the cottage for holiday let in 2011 due to the success of Sunnybeck cottage. Giggleswick is a chocolate box village with 2 lovely pubs, a Tuck Shop, church and the famous Giggleswick School with its beautiful chapel. The whole area is stunning and a complete switch off from busy life. If you don't fancy walking the three peaks you can visit many of the local towns and villages close by or take the steam train from Settle to Carlisle.
What makes this Cottage unique
Bankwell cottage is a very comfortable cottage for 6 people and is particularly popular with families. The cottage is very child friendly, with secure back and front gardens, open plan kitchen/ dining and lounge area, seating for 6 people and french doors to private rear garden. There are 3 large bedrooms, modern family bathroom and also a downstairs shower room/wc. The cottage is a tardis and is a lot larger inside than it looks, with off street parking for 1 vehicle and street parking for additional cars. We also allow up to 3 well behaved dogs, doggy treats and towels also available. The cottage is very well equipped with all mod cons and plenty of literature on local attractions and recommendations from previous visitors. I will also be at hand if you need any advice on local amenities or eateries. The cottage is just a 10 min walk into Settle where there is a Booths supermarket, a Tuesday market, cafes/pubs, train station, indoor pool. The market town of Skipton with its castle and daily market is 25 min away. There is plenty to do, with walking, cycling, sightseeing, shopping or just relax and ENJOY!!

Half term break could not have been better. The warm cosy cottage had everything, wonderful well equipped kitchen, comfortable beds, cosy living area. Exceptionally clean and very nicely styled to give the cottage character. The welcome hamper was most welcome. We would recommend this cottage to everyone who would like to spend time in this beautiful part of the Dales.
Thank you for your lovely review and for taking the time to share your experience.
I hope you come and visit us again soon?
We used our cottage to accommodate friends and family in sequence over the week. We catered for ourselves every night and were very impressed with all the resources offered in this very comfortable home from home. Carol was very warm and helpful and typified the people we met in the area. We enjoyed our walks along the river and into Settle as well as excursions further afield. The front garden provided sunbathing opportunities on a couple of evenings and indoors was commodious and relaxing when the light faded. Many thanks to Carol for our lovely stay and we would be delighted to visit the area again.
Thank you for such a kind review.
I hope to see you again one day
