The property

A traditional, mid-terrace cottage situated just a short walk from the centre of the popular market town of Skipton.

This is a delightful holiday home, providing an ideal location for a small family or couple to get away from it all and enjoy the many delights of this medieval old town, known as the Gateway to the Dales.

The cottage features a spacious sitting room with a warm and cosy gas living-flame fire set in a feature fireplace, two comfortable settees and an excellent selection of books.

The adjoining kitchen is well equipped, with a dining area and useful pantry.

The rear yard is enclosed, and guests will discover a good little evening sun trap to enjoy after a day out in the nearby Dales.

There is also a lockable garden shed ideal for bike and equipment storage.

Upstairs, the two comfortable bedrooms are well served by a spacious bathroom with a bath and separate shower cubicle.

Just a two minute walk down the ginnel brings guests out onto the high street, once voted one of the best high streets in England.

A great base to indulge in the many delights of the famous town of Skipton, voted by the Sunday Times as “The Best Place to Live in Great Britain”.

A short stroll takes you to the medieval castle, one of the oldest in the country, as well as the lively canal basin.

Not to be missed is the fabulous four-day market, which is set out down the entire length of the main high street, along with the many excellent pubs and restaurants of this much-loved town.

It is just a short drive to the wonderful moorland walks at Bolton Abbey, limestone formations at Malham Tarn, and onto Grassington with its local farmer markets, 1940's weekends, beautiful stone buildings, quirky shops and friendly pubs.

This is an ideal base for exploring this part of the Yorkshire Dales.

About the location

SKIPTON

Grassington 9 miles; Harrogate 20 miles.

Known as “The Gateway to the Dales”, Skipton is well placed for visiting all that the Dales has to offer, whilst York, the Lake District and the West Coast are also within easy motoring distance. This lovely market town has much to interest the enthusiastic visitor, boasting an ancient castle open to the public, a beautiful old parish church and a colourful market occupying the cobbled setts each side of the high street. In 2008 the Academy of Urbanism voted the High Street the best shopping spot in Britain, and The Copper Dragon/Greyhawk Brewery is highly rated in the CAMRA listings. Steam railways with regular excursions are available at Embsay and Bolton Abbey, and the Leeds to Liverpool Canal passes through Skipton with the 1 mile long Foulridge Tunnel and the 5-rise locks at Bingley within a short travel. Golf, swimming, squash, tennis and snooker are all available locally and the excellent public transport means the car can be left at home!
