  • "A lovely period cottage in a beautiful part of Yorkshire - there’s so much to see and do."

    The local pub and nearby canal walk were such a bonus. The owner checked in with us when we arrived and gave some helpful suggestions of where to eat due to a food allergy.

There is so much to see and do around the area, this cottage has easy access so we will hopefully return soon.

    The cottage was very comfortable & warm & had everything we needed. Lovely hot shower & comfortable beds. There is a church at the back & the bells ringing on Xmas day were very atmospheric. Location was spot on. You can walk along the canal path at the back of the cottage to Skipton (4/5 miles) or Silsden (2 miles). Local Coop & Fish n Chip restaurant/takeaway across the main road. reached by a subway. There is a lovely pub just across the road. Bus stop is about 5 mins walk into Cross Hills behind the Coop. We would love to stay again in the spring/summer & would recommend

  • "The Kerr is ideal for a short break in West Yorkshire."

    With a pub across the road and the Leeds to Liverpool canal a very short walk away you don't need to wander far before you find things to do. We used the bus to get into Skipton which was a 7-10 walk away on the main road. If you want to wander in the hills and moors or have some Bronte culture you will be well placed here.

    Thank you so much for your great review. It explains so well how The Kerr’s location makes it easy to explore different aspects of Yorkshire; countryside and moorland walks and interesting historical places. Property Owner

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 2014, The Sunday Times named Skipton as Britain's "best place to live" and two years later placed it among the nine best towns in Yorkshire and the North-East. 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!
