Two gorgeous cottages set in 6 acres, close to The Dales and The Lakes


Both our cottages have been lovingly renovated and designed to allow for the latest luxuries including en suites to all bedrooms but still retaining old fashioned comforts like a real fire and antique beds. Set in 6 acres of pasture and nestled in a superb countryside setting, our beautiful cottages are central heated, have handmade fully equipped kitchens with dishwashers and granite surfaces, WiFi, Freeview, Wii games console, barbecue, patio furniture, chimenea, stay in and cook or eat out. We are less than 1 mile from the village pub, The Plough with roaring fires in winter and outside dining in summer. Wigglesworth is 5 miles from the lovely market town of Settle where there are plenty of places to buy food or dine out all year round.

Tour The Dales, Lakes or upmarket Ribble Valley where you will find award winning pubs, restaurants and villages. Take the famous Settle - Carlisle train journey and enjoy the stunning scenery on the way. Catch the train to Skipton, Leeds, York, Morecambe or Lancaster from Long Preston train station (2 miles away) and buy a ticket on the train.

A walkers and cyclists paradise, Gisburn Forest is 2 miles away and The Ribble Way runs through our lovely village of Wigglesworth. Malham, Ingleton and the Three Peaks are a short drive away or for the more enthusiastic we have OS walkers maps of the surrounding area where you can follow a pre-arranged route or plot your own. Bicycle hire and planned routes for cycling and walking can be arranged. Golf, clay shooting and archery can also be arranged.

Meet the owner

Louise Mc Aneny

We purchased and took over the running of Wigglesworth House & Cottages three years ago. Having lived overseas for 20 years, raising our teenage children, the time was right to relocate back to the UK. One step into Wigglesworth House and a tour around the gorgeous cottages and we knew we had found our forever home. The previous owners created the superb cottages 7 years ago and we were only too happy to continue the business. We even took on the resident geese, ducks and hens and then added a few of our own! Our Nigerian Dwarf goats, Nettie & Nando, arrived in the Winter of 2017. Hattie our 2 year old flat coated retriever is very happy with her new playmate, Piper the Golden retriever who is 16 months old and arrived with us only recently. Stephen continues his Global role. Our sons are both at University in Scotland and our daughter at school locally. Louise runs the cottages and is a very happy Yorkshire lass who is blessed to have returned 'home'. There is always a warm,
