  • "Cottage was lovely warm and clean."

    Well supplied. For me the settee was too low and uncomfortable. My wife found it ok. Could have done with a mat by kitchen door for wet days. A small table in the bay window for sunny days would be a bonus. Other than that found everything excellent and of good quality. Would love to stay again. Thank you. George and Sylvia

    Hi George - thanks for the feedback and we will see what we can do about your suggestions. Sorry you found the sofa uncomfortable - I guess that comes down to individual preference, but we do have another comfy chair in the living room as an alternative when relaxing there. Hope to welcome you again sometime! Property Owner

    Perfect location for exploring the local area (Skipton is well placed) and exploring longer day trips to York for example. The many pubs, restaurants are all within walking distance as are quite a few activities including a park which can be reached within 10 mins walk via the canal… super!

  • "Fabulous cottage with all the facilities you could want."

    TV channels a bit random (fully acknowledged) so if you have a Netflix or other such account bring your details with you so you can log in! Very thoughtful welcome pack which was much appreciated, especially the Prosecco as we were staying over New Year! The location was superb, extremely close to the centre and all the shops, bars and restaurants. Some of the streets were a little dark getting back after an evening out, I’d recommend bringing a torch. I’d happily stay there again and highly recommend it.

    Hi Linda - Many thanks for the feedback and we are glad you enjoyed your stay. Good point on the torches and we will get a couple of small torches for guest use to leave in the cottage. Regarding the TV - we have signed up permanently to BBC iplayer, ITVx, All 4 and MY5 so these should be available. It is a smart TV so guests can log into their own streaming service accounts. Hope to welcome you back again to Flat Cap Cottage! Property Owner

    It has been beautifully refurbished, and has everything you need, including parking which is a great bonus in Skipton.

  • "Four of us, two couples, stayed at Flat Cap for a week."

    We were all delighted with the property. As others have said, the position of the cottage is superb, being right in the heart of the town but still very peaceful and quiet and having it's own dedicated parking space just outside the door. It's a new rental property and it's been very tastefully decorated and furnished. It's comfortable and warm and felt cosy on the two cold evenings when we had the fire on. It's meticulously clean and it felt very welcoming when we first walked in. The kitchen is very well equipped for a rental property and we cooked our own evening meal on three occasions and there was everything we needed (and all of it new!). The other evenings we walked out the door and tried three different pubs and restaurants within a few minutes walk away. It was great that nobody had to drive. This was a lovely cottage for a week's holiday in Yorkshire.

We visited Skipton castle which was easy to walk to from the house. We also booked a trip on a canal boat with afternoon tea which was very relaxing. Again this was within walking distance.

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!
