A lovely property in an ideal location.

Mrs Judith C,

The property was spotlessly clean. It was lovely and warm, even in January. It was really helpful that they had plenty of tourist info leaflets. We very much appreciated that there was a welcome pack of milk, biscuits, tea and coffee - very welcome after a long drive.

Mrs Julia W,

Was delighted with the house; with its decor, facilities and equipment and its excellent location within Skipton. It was good to find a two-bedroom house that has an on-suite shower/wc to one bedroom as well as a separate bathroom. It was easy to use public transport to travel to and from the property, we could explore Skipton by foot and it was possible to use public transport for trips into the Dales too.

Mrs Margaret N,


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.
