About The View

The View is certainly well named! This charming mid-terrace holiday cottage is in the scenic village of Horton in Ribblesdale with a spectacular vista of Pen-y-Ghent. There's no better place for couples or families to stay for a walking or cycling holiday in the Yorkshire Dales than in this two-bedroom holiday cottage. The View sleeps four people and is within walking distance of two welcoming pubs, The Crown and the Golden Lion.

Horton in Ribblesdale is best known as the official starting point of the Three Peaks Walk, where hikers challenge themselves to climb Pen-y-Ghent, Whernside and Ingleborough in under 12 hours. The long-distance Pennine Way also passes through Horton on its way from Edale in the south to Kirk Yetholm in the north. The Horton to Hawes stretch is especially lovely and a favourite for many who stay at The View. Cyclists and mountain bikers aren't overlooked, with the Yorkshire Dales renowned for the beauty (and gradient!) of its routes. Climbing, abseiling, caving and potholing are also readily accessible. Alternatively, save your legs and book a passage on the Settle to Carlisle Railway for stunning views with no need for exertion.

Settle and Ingleton are within just a few miles of the cottage. Both are good places to shop or grab morning tea or a more substantial meal. Local attractions for day trips include Scaleber Force Waterfall, the Museum of North Craven Life, the Ribblehead Viaduct, and White Scar Cave. The Forest of Bowland is a short drive or bike ride away, while you can reach Kendal and the Lake District National Park in under an hour.

The View is the perfect base from which to see the beautiful Yorkshire Dales and the surrounding area. It has everything you need to feel comfortable and welcome so that you can relax and sleep soundly after days of exploring and having fun.

Location (The Yorkshire Dales)

Accommodation Comprises:

The View is a lovely mid-terraced stone cottage with accommodation over two levels. It's set back from a quiet road with a bench in the front garden to admire the magnificence of Pen-y-Ghent.


  • You'll be grateful for the comfortable sofa after a day's walking or sightseeing. Light the fire, put your feet up and watch Sky TV, read or play one of a selection of games.
  • Cooking and eating in the modern kitchen/diner will be a pleasure when you have time to linger, rather than having to rush through meals the way modern life dictates. Appliances include a full-sized electric oven and four plate stove, microwave, dishwasher, fridge and freezer. There's also a washing machine for your convenience. The dining table seats four with a highchair also available.
  • It's tempting to sleep with the curtains open not only for the brilliance of the night skies but for the inspiring sight of Pen-y-Ghent from the master bedroom window. The room has a double bed, bedside tables with reading lights, a chest of drawers, and a deep tub armchair for relaxing.
  • Twin single beds and hanging space feature in the second bedroom, where there is room for a travel cot if it is required.
  • Soak your aching muscles in the bath or shower in the bathroom which has a shower over the bath, WC and a handbasin.

Outside: The front garden has a bench and mountain views, while the paved rear garden has a table and chairs for eating outdoors in fine weather. Parking is on the street outside the cottage.

Additional Information: WiFi, utilities, bed linen and bath towels are provided. A travel cot and a highchair are available - please request when booking. Guests to bring cot bedding if it is required. Up to two well-behaved dogs are welcome. Smoking is not permitted.
