Set in the heart of Skipton with lots of fun things to find and discover - making an ideal retreat for a small family or couple.

This gorgeous stone-built cottage is located in the centre of Skipton, just metres away from the historic market and range of pubs, restaurants and shops. With the canal at the bottom of the road, you can experience a peaceful and relaxing holiday but still get out and fill your days with exciting things to do. Known as the Gateway to the Dales, you’ll find lots of easy rambles or more challenging fell walks within 9 miles of the front door. Sleeping three across two inviting bedrooms, this property is bursting with character and offers a welcoming home-from-home for the duration of your stay.

Step through the front door and you’re greeted by a fabulously bright and airy open-plan living space, where soothing neutral tones and exposed wooden beams create a cosy atmosphere among a blend of contemporary and farmhouse-style furnishings. Gaze out of the wooden window at the front of the property, framed by sweet home furnishings and is a wonderful little sunspot. Curl up on the comfortable sofas in the lounge area in front of the TV after a long day of exploration, admiring the lovely stone ornamental fireplace. Culinary guests will love cooking up a storm in the large kitchen, where pretty wooden cabinets and stylish dark worktops match perfectly with a quaint dining table that’s ideal for three. Whether you’re up for cooking a delicious meal from scratch on the electric oven and gas hob or you need a quick bite to heat up in the microwave, you’ll find everything you need in here. There’s also a washer/dryer in the kitchen so there’s no need to worry if you get a bit muddy out on walks.

Head up the stairs in the middle of the open-plan living area to the tranquil bedrooms. Calming pastel tones in the double bedroom and quality bedding beckon you to slip between the sheets for a great night’s sleep; wake up gently in the morning and watch some TV before getting ready for the day. The cosy small double room also has a TV with a charming wooden beam over the window. Splashes of colour in the furnishings make this room a pleasure to wake up in with plenty of natural light, but the blinds will ensure that your sleep isn’t disturbed.

Take an invigorating shower in the shower room where grey and white tones, bright lighting and mirrors create a serene, spa-like atmosphere and is great for waking yourself up in the morning as well as winding down in the evening.

There’s no outside space with the property, but there’s an allocated parking space for one car – just remember to display the permit card when you’re using it. If you’ve brought your four-legged pal with you, go for walkies along the canal and up to Skipton Castle or Aireville Park (both 0.5 miles).

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

  • 1 shower room with WC
  • Electric oven and gas hob, washer/dryer, microwave and fridge

Lovely cosy cottage, great central location, with its own parking space. Well equipped and clean. Good information file. Nice touch of fresh flowers and lovely biscuits. Skipton is one of our favourite places, it was good to be back, we look forward to staying at the cottage again.

A very enjoyable stay. Major drawback was narrow pavement meant that many people walking past tended to look in through the window, so window blinds had to be closed often particularly when lights were on. Cottage was in an excellent position, two minutes walk from High street and similar from narrow boat marina.

Nice little basic cottage. Perfect for a family of 3. Master bedroom has a double bed & a small room with a single bed. 3 televisions! One in each room and one in the living room. One small but a clean bathroom. Kitchen had no freezer but otherwise well equipped. There is no outdoor space but who cares after all that walking you will do! Owners of Read morethe property Lisa and Sophie were very helpful. Great location with scenic walks around, shops and lovely pubs. Hide

With a varied landscape of windswept dales, heather-clad moors and dramatic coast, interspersed with picturesque towns and villages, vibrant cities and a rich historical heritage, Yorkshire is rightly considered one of Britain's premier holiday destinations. Known as 'God's Own County', Yorkshire has nearly one-third of England's National Parkland, two Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty and three sections of coastline designated as Heritage Coast.

Offering infinite opportunities for lovers of the great outdoors, the wild expanse of the Yorkshire Dales National Park in North and West Yorkshire is a glorious mix of awe-inspiring scenery, imposing castles, characterful Dales' villages and drystone walls. While to the east, the North York Moors National Park offers atmospheric moorland, fragrant pine forests and charming towns tucked away within steep-sloped valleys. Extending all the way to the Yorkshire Coast, you can even experience a traditional day at the seaside at popular resorts including Whitby, Flamborough and Scarborough. It's a beautiful terrain to explore.

A visit to the historical city of York is a must. Renowned for its medieval architecture, the magnificent York Minster and a myriad of museums, independent shops and exceptional eateries, you will not be disappointed. Then there's the chalk landscape of the Yorkshire Wolds, known to have inspired David Hockney. And with a packed calendar of events and festivals each year, including the Malton Food Festival, the Tour de Yorkshire and the Great Yorkshire Show, there's always something exciting to enjoy.

Our holiday cottages in Yorkshire are handpicked to ensure a luxurious and uniquely memorable experience. From dog-friendly cottages in the country to large family houses by the sea and romantic retreats in the city, we have a holiday in Yorkshire to suit everyone.
