  • Pretty Yorkshire stone cottage, right at the heart of the market town of Skipton
  • Inviting, sunny accommodation and charming, walled courtyard
  • Ideal location for exploring the town and heading into the Yorkshire Dales National Park

Property code: OC-DS114

A bright, welcoming Yorkshire cottage, this homely retreat in the middle of Skipton is well positioned for shops, cafes and restaurants, as well as trips to beauty spots and attractions. Sleeping three guests, this holiday home is within 150 metres of a spectrum of independent shops and eateries. Visit the 12th-century fortress castle while you are here and take a gentle canal cruise through scenic countryside. Venture into the Yorkshire Dales National Park, which begins just 1.5 miles from the property. Follow footpaths and trails through stunning landscapes. Plan an excursion to Malham, 10.5 miles away, with its beautiful tarn and its huge, curved limestone cove. Gordale Scar, a dramatic limestone ravine, 11.5 miles away, is also worth seeing.

Open the front door and make yourselves immediately at home in the open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner, which has underfloor heating and a coal-effect gas fire. Choose a film on the TV or DVD or listen to music, opening the French doors on to the courtyard garden on fine days. The kitchen space here is well-equipped so you can prepare meals at home if you choose to eat in. Set the table either inside or out, depending on the weather, or dine at the breakfast bar. There is also a WC at ground-floor level. Climb the stairs when you are ready to turn in for the night to discover a double bedroom and a single on the first floor. The family shower room is also here.

Bask in the sunshine out in the private courtyard garden, with its gorgeous stone walls and patio furniture. Have a cup of tea or a meal out here too during the spring and summer months.

  • 2 bedrooms – 1 double and 1 single

A beautifully modernised, well equipped, warm and cosy cottage in a brilliant location right in the middle of Skipton, with parking right outside. Easy walks along the canal and into the town centre without having to move the car. Even off season (and in the winter storms!) we were warm and dry and enjoyed our stay in Bobbin Cottage very much.

Bobbin Cottage is a lovely cottage and the double bed was the comfiest bed we have ever slept in in a holiday cottage. I marked the cleanliness down to 4 because someone before has spilt something on the tiled floor and the floor had not been washed so as soon as we stepped into the cottage our shoes stuck to the sticky areas. On wiping with a wiRead morepe the floor was really rather dirty. If we ever decide to stay in Skipton again, we would certainly consider returning to Bobbin Cottage. Hide
