The property

Bay Horse Cottage is a beautiful stone dwelling, resting on the edge of Skipton town in the North of Yorkshire.

With a warm and welcoming ambiance, this lovely home-away-from-home provides an idyllic base for families of three who wish to explore the Yorkshire Dales.

Enter into the open-plan living space and take a seat on the plush leather sofas as you warm from the charming woodburning stove within the traditional inglenook fireplace, following a relaxing afternoon stroll.

Wander over to the chic contemporary kitchen to prepare a delicious meal for the group, with the help of the sleek built-in electric oven and induction hob.

Serve up at the pretty wood dining table and share stories of your holiday so far, before cracking open a bottle of bubbly and toasting to the good times ahead.

Venture up the beautiful winding staircase to the first floor and discover a spacious double bedroom, decorated with delightful country furnishings and finished with a Juliet balcony, overlooking the splendid North Yorkshire countryside.

Continue up to the second-floor and find a double bedroom with double bed and a single.

There are striking exposed beams and natural light flooding in from the Velux windows, as well as benefiting from a well-placed en-suite with basin and WC.

Meet the adorable residents of the paddocks that are attached to the property, including a herd of Alpacas and two friendly pigs.

Embark on a leisurely stroll into Skipton to explore the 12th-century fortress of Skipton Castle or wander the galleries of The Craven Museum to learn of the towns past.

Visit the imposing ruins of Bolton Priory and see the pretty stepping stones that cross the River Wharfe, before hopping on the Bolton Abbey Steam train or heading to The Strid Ancient Woodland.

Live unforgettable moments with your loved ones at Bay Horse Cottage.

About the location


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!
