“Ideal location, clean,comfortable & compact- perfect for 2 people.”

Merlin Cottage is located on the High Street slightly above street level with a gravelled front garden area which gives it distance from passing vehicles & pedestrians. This cottage has all 2 people will need for a holiday in Ingleton, thoughtful design has made full use of the available space with all good quality fittings and appliances plus very fast & efficient heating system - useful for drying bath towels.
We particularly liked the very comfortable super-king size bed and the walk -in 'wardrobe' area at top of stairs. The secluded patio are is a lovely afternoon suntrap accessed via rear french doors.
Needless to say, the country walks, Ingleton falls and the Three Peaks are the main attractions here and the pubs and shops are only a few minutes walk away from Merlin Cottage - the Wheatsheaf is literally just across the car park and serves perfectly adequate pub grub with a good choice of draught beers and the other 2 pubs offer similar fare.
La Cascada tapas bar is less than a minutes walk away and is well worth a visit for a taste of ...errrm Spain in the heart of the dales !
Also worth a walking visit is the 17th century Marton Arms pub at Thornton-in-Lonsdale just over half a mile away.
Parking near the cottage was never a problem for us,we always found a space but it is walking country so we didnt use the car much anyway.
We would give Merlin cottage a score of 10/10 - winter or summer it is the perfect holiday bolt-hole for two and we would have no hesitation recommending to friends & relatives.

“Charming cottage”
Reviewed 21 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Delightful cottage. Bedroom up narrow stairs and bathroom and toilet downstairs,but this has not been a problem. Everything we need in the kitchen/living room, outdoor area with chairs and table and car parking space provided. Information provided re disposal of waste/recycling and tourist areas. And a 10-second walk to a very nice pub. Quiet area on a one-way street, shopping facilities: laundrette, a couple of small co-ops nearby - no butcher shop. Short drive away we have been shopping at Settle at a superb supermarket just a short distance from the town centre.

“A perfect hideaway in a wonderful location.”
Reviewed 22 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

We stayed for a week at the end of May and had a great time. We woke early on the Sunday and got to the waterfalls walk as it opened, it was wonderful to have it all to ourselves, just the birds for company and wonderful scenery. Later we toured the Lakes, walked up to Malham Cove and visited a few National Trust properties. The cottage was warm, comfortable and well stocked. We loved it.
