We have had time to blow away the cobwebs. A very central spot for getting out and about, locally and a bit further afield using regular transport links. Did our best to support the local businesses ie. pubs and micrppubs!

Past Customer,

The Fitzburgh family enjoyed ourselves, it is a lovely cottage. We come to Skipton alot and we will definitely be staying here again.

Ronnie & C,

Such a nice place. Perfect location. Everything in skipton is within walking distance. The cottage was extremely comfortable. I would most definitely stay here again.


Area Information

Skipton is a market town located on the course of the River Aire and the Leeds and Liverpool Canal to the south of the Yorkshire Dales. Skipton is able to boast Skipton Castle, constructed in 1090. Skipton became a prosperous market town, trading sheep and woollen goods and still has a cobbled street, Sheep Street. The town provides an ideal base for a walking trip and is close enough to the Dales and the Lakes for days out.

There's always something happening in the area, with festivals and fairs are held throughout the year. For more information on Skipton and the surrounding area and local events see our Yorkshire Dales Guide and the Festivals & Events Guide.
