Eldroth House Holiday Cottages

Eldroth House is a superb stone built property in the idyllic rural village of Eldroth. It offers extremely well furnished and spacious one and two bedroom accommodation close to the market town of Settle, and is perfectly placed for exploring the beauty of the Forest of Bowland, the Yorkshire Dales and the Lake District.

The tranquil gardens with running stream and small orchard are ideal for relaxing after a day’s walking, cycling, sightseeing or shopping. We provide everything you need to make your stay peaceful and enjoyable. After the sun sets there’s a whole new world to discover in the dark skies over Bowland and we are a Dark Sky Friendly business.

Our first Guests described the Barn as ‘a little piece of heaven’! It is the

perfect romantic getaway for couples. At the end of the day, sink into the comfy, super king sized bed and maybe do some dark sky star gazing!

Some of our latest Guests said ‘Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful cottage. If only other property owners shared your ideals we would never be disappointed! You have everything so perfect, location, comfort and that extra special touch.’ Your four legged friends are welcome in the Cottage too!

Peaks and Pods

Perfectly positioned on a small dairy farm in North Yorkshire, these five camping pods are in a league of their own. These cedar-clad beauties boast panoramic views, well-appointed terraces, and comfortable double beds. All the pods also have their own private bathrooms (either ensuite or just a short stroll away), but the luxury doesn’t stop there. Three of these beautiful pods even have their own hot tubs. The eco-conscious owners have earned themselves a Green Tourism ‘Gold Award’ for commitment to sustainability.

The pods guarantee a cosy night’s sleep with great insulation, heating and double-glazed doors and windows – this is definitely a few steps up from regular camping. Each one is nestled into its own bank next to a dry stone wall to protect you from the elements, should they decide to be unkind.

Inside there is a fully-equipped kitchenette and tasteful crockery, along with an array of utensils, and stowaway wooden tables and chairs. Sleeping up to four (five at a push in the Green Top pods), each has a handmade double bed with a pocket-sprung mattress and sofa bed – ideal for adventurous families. Bedding and towels are provided. Each pod has its own fire bowl that doubles as a barbecue and comes with free kiln-dried wood – just add marshmallows!

Wander round the site and you’ll be happy to discover ‘The Hub’, a fantastic all-weather communal space that comes complete with a wood-fired pizza oven. It’s a great place to relax and socialise.
