    - Mr Charman, June 2021

The property

Encompassed by luscious meadows and tranquil countryside views on top of the Yorkshire moors is this delightful self-contained annexe.

Welcoming you in through idyllic farmland and three acres of private gardens, The Annexe is the perfect resting spot for a romantic escape to West Yorkshire.

Admire the front decking area as you greet the property, a quaint seating area where you can sip on a morning coffee as you look out to the exceptional views, or enjoy a spot of alfresco dining as the clever porch seat transforms into a table.

Step inside and prepare for a relaxing stay, dropping off your bags and heading in the well-equipped kitchen to put together some snacks, and a light lunch before heading out for the day.

Resting behind is a great bathroom, fitted with a spacious walk-in shower where you can prepare for an exciting day ahead.

Continuing to impress is the snug living/dining room, gather on the dining table for an intimate home-cooked meal over a bottle of wine before snuggling up on the sofa, letting the gas fire warm you as you watch a film, the sofa also acts as a sofa bed for an extra guests.

Retire upstairs to the inviting double bedroom, curling up with a good book as you unwind after an exciting day.

Soak up your surroundings, relishing in a quiet afternoon picnic, or venturing towards the local footpath as you embark on a ramble along the moors.

A ten minute drive will take you into the Market town of Skipton and all its amenities, boasting a fantastic choice of local pubs where you can refresh with a relaxing pint on a summer's afternoon, a selection of trendy restaurants when you fancy a romantic date night away from the kitchen, and a plethora of shops to accommodate your home-cooking.

Why not visit the town's popular attractions, discovering Victorian buildings on the cobbled streets over to the historic National Trust owned East Riddlesden Hall, or hopping on the famous Keighley and Worth Valley Light Railway, for a scenic journey over to the village of Oxenhope.

Other must-see attractions await in the literary village of Haworth, known as the home to the Bronte sisters, the village boasts the Bronte Parsonage Museum and links to the moors that inspired Wuthering Heights.

Alternatively, discover the Victorian spa town of Harrogate and breath-taking Yorkshire Dales National Park all await to be explored further afield.

Unwind in this tranquil setting for a romantic escape to West Yorkshire.

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 2008 the Academy of Urbanism voted the High Street the best shopping spot in Britain, and The Copper Dragon/Greyhawk Brewery is highly rated in the CAMRA listings. 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!
