  • "Location was excellent."

    To view the TV we had to do some rearranging of the furniture then put everything back the day before we left. Due to the angle of the property, the bedroom lacks privacy as it looks directly and is visible to/from the neighbour's garden. Perhaps some lace curtains or shutter blinds would have helped.

    There is a blind in the bedroom - wish I'd known you'd not seen it, glad you liked the location of Waters View Property Owner

  • "Well presented modern apartment done to a high standard over looking the canal."

    Very close to the town, shops etc. Appears only recently to have become a holiday let and everything is new. It was well equipped generally . There is plumbing for washing machine and space so be even better if owners are going put in a washing machine. Few minor suggestions for owners to make even better than it already is - 1. Info leaflets on the thermostat and dish washer would have been useful. 2. The Tv is totally wrong angle in relation to the angle of the sofa. 3. I know a 2 person flat , but could do with at least 6 dishes, plates, mugs etc not just 4 of each. With 2 dishes used at breakfast then lunch and tea be better and more economical for dishwasher use. 4. There was one lounge chair to sit and look over the canal be nice to have had 2. 5. Totally appropriate the roller blind cords having be so short, but to reach especially over the sink unit nigh on impossible. Please provide a simple plastic step stool. These suggestions are no way a negative , asked for feedback to help owners improve things. We had a lovely relaxing week and would recommend to family and friends.

    Thanks for taking the time and your feedback Rosemary and will certainly look at and take on board, so glad you enjoyed your stay at Waters View and look forward to welcoming you back at some point Property Owner

  • "We enjoyed staying in Waters View."

    A great location overlooking the canal, giving easy access to Skipton with all the town has to offer and to the surrounding area. The apartment is new and this is reflected in the quality of the decor and fittings. It is well stocked with equipment for eating in but there are really good eateries in town. Personally, and this is personal, the TV on the wall was a little too high and angled slightly away from the settee causing some discomfort. The owner rang the day before with key instructions and advice re local activities. A nice personal touch. We recommend this property for a stay in Skipton.

    Thanks very much Bobby for your kind review of Waters View, really glad you enjoyed your stay, the location and exploring Skipton and around. Hopefully you'll get back one day and thanks again Andy Property Owner

  • "This is a hidden gem!"

    Waters View is a spacious and immaculately presented property. Tucked away on the outskirts of the town centre, the off road parking allows you to pretty much leave your car and take the scenic walk along the canal into town. Supermarkets and the railway station are equally just a 5 -10 min stroll away. Sykes- you need to add this info to the property description! Andy and Silva were lovely hosts, very helpful, and very approachable. They have clearly given a lot of thought to this property through the quality and comfort of the facilities it provides. One piece of feedback- not crtisism- the lounge needs a couple of lamps, for evenings spent reading etc , the existing lamp a bit inefficient. Thank-you for a lovely stay - I wish it could have been longer- I will be back!

    Many thanks Gillian! You're feedback is very constructive, encouraging and we will make sure we have the lamps in place for sure in time before your next visit - thanks for letting us know! So glad you enjoyed Waters View so much and very grateful for you taking the time to give your review - thanks again Gillian 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!
