Super property, in excellent condition and super clean. Very efficient and helpful.

Mr N I,

The house was spotless. The bathroom was so nice my wife is now spending £4000 to try to replicate it at home. Our compliments to the owner and whoever keeps the place clean. Skipton was a lovely town and their christmas decs were beautiful. The house was great for access to The Dales, where we spent every day but one. A wonderful week. Can't emphasise enough how impressed we were with the house, it's cleanliness and how it was kitted out.

Mr Ian A,

Beautiful cottage, very well equipped, warm & relaxing. Everything about the property is lovely. We will definitely be back again.

Previous Customer,

Mrs Angela W,


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.
