We stayed for 2 nights in Feb 2012, arriving by train. Shirley met us at the station, and Robert took us back at the end of our stay, despite heavy snow making driving difficult. (Despite the postal address being Giggleswick, Valleymead is much closer to Settle station than to Giggleswick Station). This was typical of their kindness. There were home baked cookies on arrival, the room was fine, and it and the bathroom were spotlessly clean. Breakfast was excellent. In the evening we ate at the Black Horse in Giggleswick on the first night, which was fine (nice quiet atmosphere, great beer -- taylors landlord, well kept -- and OK food) and at the Lion in Settle on the 2nd night (more lively, food better than the BH but also more expensive). We also visited the Harts Head in Giggleswick which was a bit too lively for our tastes. The Naked Man in Settle is good for tea etc (though if he exists, we never set eyes on him). Anyway, Valleymead is highly recommended, and excellent value for money. It's particularly good if you don't want to travel by car. We hope to be back there 'ere long.
