  • "Fabulous, clean comfortable apartment , very well equipped."

    Close to station and easy train travel locally. Our issue was access to the alloted parking space, it was quite tight , and there was no optional parking anywhere nearby. Otherwise a great stay in a lovely village.

  • "The apartment is clean, comfortable and the location is perfect."

    The train station is 2 minutes from the apartment, so you can park the car up for the week and explore Yorkshire by rail.

  • "Stunning apartment."

    Weather and petrol shortage curtailed our enjoyment of the area but well worth the visit. However, only one pub was open for food in the village and that was just for 4 nights. Worth knowing but Skipton nearby has some very good eating places.

  • "Absolutely loved the flat."

    Impeccably clean and beautiful. Lovely views out the windows, great location. We were not in the flat much as we were out hiking most days but it was a wonderful place to return home to. Strangely the post code didn't get us there in google maps but we had no trouble finding it. Easy to get keys and enter. Parking space was very tight for larger cars. We managed fine due mostly to the empty spaces across from the assigned spot. If those were filled, not sure we should have been able to get our car in! I gather from looking at the outdoor space there may be restrictions on parking there, but if there is recommended street parking I would suggest advising future renters in case they have a large car. Many thanks for the wonderful stay. It was fantastic.

  • "The apartment is wonderful with every mod con."

    There is a lift from the car park up to the 3rd floor which we hadn't read about. So it was most welcome. There were also t-towels, an over glove, condiments and sauces, tea and coffee and washing up equipment left for our use. Also I was glad to find a hairdryer. The owners had left a vase of fresh flowers and a bottle of wine which was a lovely touch. I have read on various sites that Skipton is between four and ten miles away, but it is definitely only four. The development is next to the railway station (but trains aren't heard) and we went into Skipton on the train one evening. All very straight forward. There is a small village shop in Cononley and two pubs, one of which is only two minutes walk from the apartment. If we went back to the area we would certainly stay at Horace Mills again. Can't recommend it highly enough.

  • "The apartment was absolutely superb, couldn’t fault anything."

    We hope to go back again as one week wasn’t long enough to explore everywhere we wanted to go. Weather was also very warm. We will definitely be back. Thank you Tracy and Simon for the bottle of wine and fresh flowers, such a lovely touch.

The property

A beautiful, reverse-level duplex penthouse apartment on a newly converted mill estate in the village of Cononley in Airedale, is Horace Mills.

This contemporary property is ideal for a couple or two couples wanting to enjoy a peaceful and pretty holiday in the south of the Yorkshire Dales, offering picturesque valley views.

Enter the property on the first floor to two spacious double bedrooms, with contemporary style, soft grey carpets, ample storage space and access to a shared balcony.

The first bedroom has a convenient en-suite shower room, while the second double has the option for the zip/link bed to be made up as two singles and is serviced by the family shower room, so there shouldn't be any queuing for the bathroom in the mornings.

On the second floor, pass the utility cupboard which stores a washing machine, and head up the wide spiral staircase to the open-plan living space.

The newly-fitted, glossy white kitchen has all the appliances you'll need, including an integrated dishwasher, and meal can be enjoyed together at the dining table, before retreating to the lovely sofas and enjoying watching the huge Smart TV, or take advantage of the Bluetooth sound system to listen to music or the Netflix account to enjoy a film.

Later, why not enjoy the incredible views available to you from the balcony, where you can sit out and take it all in, with a celebratory glass of fizz.

Horace Mills is a short walk from the village's two renowned real ale pubs and the railway station, and for more amenities, the many delights of the traditional market town of Skipton (next stop on the train from Cononley) are not to be missed.

The train provides excellent opportunities to travel the scenic Settle to Carlisle line or the nostalgic Keighley & Worth Valley Railway which embraces the steam era.

Head to Leeds (30 minutes on the train) or Bradford for some of the UK's best restaurants, attractions, shops, culture and nightlife.

The area around this holiday retreat is an outdoor paradise, with beautiful strolls in the village surrounds as well as more challenging walks and cycle rides into the nearby hills and up into the joy of the Yorkshire Dales providing a wealth of activities in the stunning countryside as well as access to wonderful towns and cities steeped in history and fascinating architecture.

Be sure to stay at Horace Mills for a luxurious time away, with lots to do and see.
