Elbeck Barn was the perfect holiday retreat - very comfortable & in the most beautiful location. We particularly enjoyed sitting in the little garden by the river in the September sunshine & snuggling down in front of the wonderful open fire when the weather cooled down. Wonderful walks & pubs to enjoy nearby & knockout views.

A beautiful cottage in the most stunning location. The cottage is fully equipped, has a great range of reading material, delightful sitting room upstairs with a view of the valley, and a lovely terrace by the river. A great local pub with The Queen's Arms only a short walk from the front door. We can recommend the walk by the river down to ArncliffRead moree, the walk at Malham Cove and the drive over to Settle.

Beautiful holiday cottage with quality furnishings and fittings throughout. Very peaceful local and a most unusual dry river bed at the bottom of the garden. There is a very good pub that serves excellent food a short walk away. Good walks from the cottage.

We had a wonderful week in this beautiful cottage, with stillness and tranquility and stunning views to gaze upon from both cottage and riverside gardens, only the bleating of little lambs to break the silence.

A fabulous very comfortable cottage with a lovely pub in the village. A great location as could just walk into the countryside from Elbeck Barn itself. The kitchen was properly equipped and as we like to cook, that was important to us and often a problem in rented cottages. Despite the rain, we could enjoy the views and were even able to sit by theRead more river - once it appeared - one evening. Hide

We look for properties that are warm, have a well-equipped kitchen, a comfortable sitting area, and a good shower. After a long days walking, we also appreciated the large master suite bed. This elegant cottage has it all in a peaceful location, with walks from the doorstep and a pub within an easy stroll. There is good shopping a drive away in Read moreSettle and Skipton. This is an ideal property to 'get away from it all' but with the ability to stay wifi connected if you need it. To us, it was a hidden gem. Hide
