    • “Super hosts”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “We have just come back a lovely four night stay at the snug and arbour. We took my elderly mum and her husband on a well deserved break. It was very relaxing and the facilities were brilliant for them as he suffers from parkinsons. The hosts even provided a half step for the step down into the kitchen. The hosts provided a welcome pack and mum couldn't believe it when she was presented with fresh strawberries. Many thanks and hope to return”

    • “Wish we found The Snug years ago - FANTASTIC!”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “As regular visitors to North Yorkshire (family in Skipton), we wish we had found The Snug, Gargrave years ago! For my disabled wife, it is perfect with level access, if required or just 1 manageable step down/back up in & out of both doors & just 1 manageable step between the kitchen/dining area & the lounge area & the owners provided a plastic, intermediate step to make things easier. The shower is very easily accessible with just a 3 or 4 inch lip to step over. The accommodation is 5 star luxury with everything gleaming & looking brand spanking new. The Snug is very spacious with EVERYTHING you need for a lovely holiday/short break & the bed/bed linen is so very comfortable - very hard to get out of! Hugh & Janet are so very welcoming, warm, friendly & helpful with nothing to much trouble. The unexpected goodies (butter, choccy biccies, fresh strawberries, milk, scones & strawberry jam) were very welcome. Finally, everything on your doorstep - buses, Indian, pubs, supermarket & trains. Thank you ever so much.”

    • “What a gem!”

    • “Fantastic place to stay. The snug is very spacious yet cosy and has everything you need and more. The owners are so welcoming, even providing goodies on arrival! The bed is really comfy, bathroom and lounge area lovely and the kitchen has every utensil and pot and pan you could ask for! The cottage is very clean and even has its own utility area with washing machine if you needed it. There is a supermarket next door, a pub across the road, another within 10 minutes walk and an Indian restaurant 5 minutes away. With beautiful surroundings, routes to all Yorkshire has to offer easily accessible what more can you ask for?”

    • “Perfect”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “We received a warm welcome from the lovely owners. They couldn't do enough to help and please us. The 'goodies' awaiting us were so thoughtful - everything we needed after a long journey, the wherewithal to make drinks, milk and butter,crumpets and jam, cherries and other things I can't remember. The decor was perfect, stylish but restful. The kitchen/dining room was nicely furnished and equipped with all we needed. There were facilities for laundry if we needed them. There were Velux windows in the kitchen which added to the lightness of it. The lounge area was again equipped with all we could require. The shower room was a wonderful experience - I'd never used such an 'obedient' shower. There was a large wardrobe area and the biggest bed I'd ever seen. Everything was spotless throughout. We had our own, very private, outdoor seating area/summerhouse, with table and chairs. We were also invited to walk and sit in the owners' own garden if we wanted to. There was ample car parking space. The owners were real Christians (and I mean that in the best possible way), involved in village and community life, and so caring. They were never intrusive but always there if we needed them. We even got clean towels half-way through the week. It was nice to chat to the owners as we used to live in the area and knew quite a lot of people in common. I may have forgotten some things after two months, but all we can say was it was a perfect place run by lovely people and where we had a lovely holiday.”

    • “Lovely, clean, warm and spacious cottage. Fantastic location near all amenities. Good local pubs and great Indian restaurant. Well placed for walking in the Dales and not far from Skipton for a shop. It was great were were allowed to stay on our last morning as long as we liked because no-one was due in the cottage. It is our second visit to the Snug and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves...thanks again.”

About the location


Skipton 4 miles; Settle 12 miles.

A pretty village on the banks of the River Aire, around 7 miles from Malham, with its spectacular limestone cove and scar, and 4 miles from the ancient market town of Skipton — “The Gateway to the Dales” — with its historic castle. Traversed by the Leeds-Liverpool Canal, cycle route 68 and the Pennine Way, Gargrave is well served by bus and rail so a car is not essential to the enjoyment of a holiday in this part of Yorkshire. On the border of the Yorkshire Dales National Park, the village has a variety of shops, pubs and places to eat. An ideal centre for walking, cycling and touring.
