  • “Set in the attractive village of Cononley The Snug is a beautiful and well equipped cottage, perfect for our weekend break on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales.”


    The village boasts 2 great pubs (alas neither serving food at the time of our visit) a village shop, train station with the surrounding area a walkers paradise. The cottage itself stands in the centre of the village with 'off road' parking and neighbours who are on hand with a warm Yorkshire welcome and helpful advice on where to go and what to do. Upon arrival you are met with a spotlessly clean, cosy, warm, delightfully furnished cottage and a substantial 'welcome pack' provided by the owners. We didn't use the sauna and I personally found the bed a bit uncomfortable (hence the reduced comfort rating) but overall we couldn't fault this property and will certainly be looking to book another weekend away early 2022. Would certainly recommend.

About the location


Skipton 4 miles; Keighley 6.6 miles; Burnley 16.1 miles; Harrogate 22 miles; Leeds 24.1 miles

The attractive village of Cononley lies in Airedale, four miles south of Skipton. The village's 17th Century heritage is still visible in some of the buildings, with an even greater number remaining from the villages heyday as a 19th Century centre for hand loom weaving and lead mining. There are two pubs and a mainline railway station with links to Leeds, Skipton and the famous Settle to Carlisle Railway line. Nearby Skipton, known as "The Gateway to the Dales", has an ancient castle, a beautiful old parish church and a colourful market occupying the cobbled setts each side of the high street. Enjoy a canal trip on a traditional barge or visit Embsay Steam Railway or the Keighley and Worth Valley Railway.
