  • "Really clean property, with good Wifi (we used phones and tablets only) which was in a perfect location for us."

    It was quite a chilly windy time when we stayed and The Annexe was lovely and warm with the fire in the evenings. The main bed was large and really really comfy with good quality bedding. Kitchen was cosy and was well equipped too. We had to contact the owners regarding the sofa bed as we couldn’t work it out and they responded very quickly - the issue was it’s designed so it doesn’t lie flat, so we had opened it correctly it just did not look right. Son didn’t find it very comfy as a front sleeper, and used the camping mat we had brought instead. It was however a very comfy sofa. The water pressure in the shower was a little on the low side but the water temp was fine. Bathroom just lacked a couple of hooks to hang towels/dressing gowns on. Owners friendly and helpful.

  • "Lovely, quiet, secluded little property."

    We named it The Dolls House, but don't be put off by that. It was cosy, warm and comfortable and had everything we needed for a relaxing break. The main door definitely had a knack to it and after a week I still hadn't mastered it, but hubby managed fine.

  • "Lovely views and a relaxing and quiet place to stay."

    Very comfortable bed and we appreciated the food and drink that was left for us.Just a slight issue was a bedroom window that would not close and we ran out of toilet paper and had to buy some as we were left very little. Overall though very good place to stay.

    You get everything you need and you are surrounded by the beauty of Yorkshire nature. You are provided with all facilities and get access to explore what Yorkshire has to offer. We spent there a week and we are already planning to come back. Strongly recommend.

    It is such a cosy and comfortable place to stay and the hosts were so friendly and helpful. Sean cleared the snow from paths around the property one morning, so thoughtful. We plan to return again.

  • "The Annex is an ideal property to tour the Yorkshire dales, the Dog and Gun is an excellent dog friendly location for evening meals, the staff are very friendly and the food of a very high quality."

    The Annex was warm, more than enough room for 2 people and their dog, just put a couple of comfortable armchairs in the lounge rather than the bed settee and it would be perfect.

    Great location, great views, easy access to towns nearby. Clean & cosy. Only thing that let this property down is the shower it wasn't very warm and wasn't much power, other than this the property was perfect.

    It was just a little to icolated for us, I was hoping for dog walks were I could let him off his lead but it was all farm land fenced off, so my dog didn't get to run around. Lovely stay though.

  • "As every time I stepped out it was raining so I returned home a day early."

    The car parking spec was avery long way from the cottage. The heating was not on in the cottage, the downstairs had underfloor heating so that was fine but hadn’t spotted the bedroom radiator.

    The heating is on all the time upstairs but is just turned down. It warms up very quickly. We allow guests to park outside the front of the house to unload in the first instance. Once unpacked, there is dedicated parking round the front of the house with a very short walk around to the back of the flat. Property Owner

  • "As a 'mature' couple with a dog, we really enjoyed our stay in the Annexe."

    The location is peaceful, relaxing and ideal to use as a base for the surrounding area. However, Glusburn Park (just up the road) is also a fab place for families to visit with children of all ages and also great for an evening/morning dog walk too. There is so much to do and see in the vicinity, including a trip to Skipton, the Castle and surrounding woods. Excellent parking close by which is very well priced at £4.50 for the whole day in 'peak times'. A visit to the Stanforth Pie shop is a must too. The tastiest pork pie I have ever tasted at such reasonable prices too, you will not be disappointed! The facilities at the Annexe are excellent - and although compact, the space is well utilised, beautifully clean and has everything you need during your visit. The website photographs give an accurate depiction of the facilities on offer. We enjoyed watching TV on the sofa bed in the evening by pulling it out into full position, so that we could both relax in the lounge room. Although the Annexe is 'attached' the main house, this was not an issue, as privacy is well thought out in terms of the space available. The hosts were friendly and hospitable without being intrusive and we will definitely stay again when visiting the area. Also noteworthy, we enjoyed a couple of fab meals at the Dog and Gun pub just down the road. Highly recommended.

    Our complaint was that the sofa and chair was not comfortable with no arm rests. The lighting in the lounge was dingy and the walk to the Annex was not ideal, a lot of stones which was bad to walk on , we had to carry our small dog over them. Only a small amount of grass immediately outside as a notice that is private although the grass area at side ok. Large dogs would run all over. Thank you.

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. The town also marks the staring point for Tour de Yorkshire, a major international cycle race held every year. Golf, swimming, squash, tennis and snooker are all available locally and the excellent public transport means the car can be left at home!
