“Classic Dales cottage with modern interior - Great location”
Reviewed 29 September 2013 for a stay in August 2013

Well located on peaceful road , with only short walk to Settle where most needs are catered for in this wonderful market town , that had great shops, places to eat and plenty of character. We managed to do so many activites in a week within only a short 10-20min drive each day from the cottage.
The Cottage had all the mod cons that you need when on holiday and was comfortable , and more spacious than the outside suggests.
Some lovely walks along by the river into the town

“Beautiful setting for a lovely cottage”
Reviewed 31 August 2013 for a stay in July 2013

This cottage is perfectly situated for a holiday in the dales. Many attractions within easy reach. The cottage is lovely and very well equipt with everything you need for a holiday. The location is brilliant with Settle within walking distance,the village has two pubs both within walking distance of the cottage and both serving good pub food.There is a good supermarket again within walking distance.
The cottage itself provides a real home from home, very clean and comfortable with nice outside space for relaxing after busy days exploring wonderful countryside.We loved Bolton Abbey, Ingletons Falls and Malham Tarn and all were much appreciated by Winnie our much loved family dog!
We would certainly recommend Bankwell Cottage.

“Beautiful Bankwell in gorgious Giggleswick”
Reviewed 7 July 2013 for a stay in July 2013

Have just returned from a week staying at Bankwell Cottage - two adults, 21 year old son & girlfriend and 19 year old son. The cottage was pretty near perfect. Beautifully decorated; well kitted out; the bonus of two decent showers and never ending hot water. Carol met us on arrival which was lovely and had left us a little hamper of bread, cheese, milk - the essentials after a long journey in the heat! Even Digby the terrier had bowls, towels, leads - nothing was too much and not thought of. We were blessed with fabulous weather - and visited Bolton Abbey - a beautiful 5-ish mile walk along the river and abbey ruins; other recommended trips: Ribbleshead Viaduct; Ingleton Falls trail (another beautiful river walk with amazing waterfalls); Drive up to Malham Tarn for some fabulous views, visit Giggleswick school chapel which is stunning or walk in to Settle and climb up to the Castleberg (where the flag is flying) for some great views over Settle and beyond. Really can't recommend this cottage and area enough. We will definitely be back.

“Lovely cottage and everything you need for a great holiday.”
Reviewed 23 June 2013 for a stay in June 2013

We travelled with two small children to Bankwell and found it to be spacious and comfortable with everything we needed. It's a great location for all different kinds of activities. One of our children was under the weather while we were there, so we were grateful to be in such a pleasant holiday home!
