    . We loved our stay here and didn’t want to leave. The village is lovely and friendly, we visited both pubs and got speaking to a few locals. Would love to visit again.

  • "Absolutely fantastic cottage cosy and spotless, decor tasteful and welcoming felt like a home away from home, the welcome basket a delightful surprise, local biscuits, crisps even a nice bottle of red wine, hot chocolate and coffee pods for the tassimo coffee machine, what a lovely touch."

    There should have been 3 of us and a fury friend on this trip, but unfortunately our daughter and the dog owner wasn’t well, so just my husband and myself in the end. Our Niece and her family live a few doors down on Skipton Road so the trip was to see in the new year with them at her house and the location was perfect 2 min walk, We love Embsay visiting a couple of times a year, so we’ll definitely be back to No4.if it’s available we loved it. A little tip for the owner and this is absolutely not a complaint, I would have massages them directly but couldn’t find any contact details for them sorry, we found the mattress on the kingsize bed a bit firm for our taste, maybe a mattress topper or even a spare quilt to lie on, stowed in the single bedroom large cupboard would be helpful for delicate souls like ourselves ;-) Hopefully see you soon no4 Embsay Clare and Stuart

    Hello Clare, Thank you so very much for the lovely feedback! We are very glad you enjoyed your stay. Thank you for the suggestion regarding the mattress topper, we will certainly look into it. Kind regards Nadine Property Owner

The property

Nestled within the Dales village of Embsay, North Yorkshire is No 4 Embsay, a delightful, mid-terrace cottage.

Enjoying elevated, countryside views across to Skipton Dales, whilst upon the cusp of the Yorkshire Dales National Park, No 4 Embsay makes a wonderful base, set near a hub of amenities and attractions.

Park up to the roadside, before heading indoors, to reach the homely sitting room, complete with plush seating, a Smart TV, and a woodburning stove.

Locate the kitchen/diner, compact yet well-equipped for a self-catered stay, where you can prepare and enjoy meals together, with a neighbouring utility available to keep on top of your washing.

Enjoy the communal outdoor space to the rear of the home, where you can socialise and take in your rural surroundings, before climbing the stairs to two well-appointed bedrooms; select between a brass-iron kingsize, and a lovely single.

Awaken to your morning routine in the contemporary shower room, before travelling on foot into the village, where you can visit the local Post Office, and dine out at the Cavendish Arms, or the Elm Tree Inn, before embarking on a nature-filled hike along the Embsay Crag.

Directly opposite the cottage is the Embsay & Bolton Abbey Steam Railway which takes you through the beautiful Yorkshire countryside to Bolton Abbey Station on a vintage steam train; from here it is a gentle walk to the historic Bolton Priory or the Devonshire Arms Hotel for a bite to eat.

Travel to Skipton for further amenities, where you can also practise your swing at Skipton Golf Club, tour the magnificent structure of Skipton Castle, trek through Skipton Castle Woods, and tour Craven Museum & Gallery, whilst the Yorkshire Dales Food & Drink Festival is held nearby, the perfect event for foodies.


Heading north, enjoy the opportunity to visit the remains of Bolton Abbey, with the Welly Walk and Stepping Stones trails to follow, or continue into the Nidderdale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, where you'll locate Parcevall Hall Gardens.

Round off your getaway with a day of exploration, taking in the breath-taking scenery of Malham Cove and Scaleber Force Waterfall, before returning home in time for supper.

Make delightful memories at No 4 Embsay.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £250.
