  • "We loved our stay, everything you need is provided."

    The cottage is comfortably decorated, in keeping with the age of the property. The grounds are immaculately maintained, and the views of the surrounding countryside are breathtaking. We will be looking forward to staying again.

    Hi Christopher, Thank you very much for your review. It's really nice to know how much you loved your stay in the Yorkshire Dales and that you found Low Skibeden Holiday Cottage comfortably decorated and in keeping with the character of the 17th century building, alongside benefitting from the breathtaking surrounding views. Thanks again Christopher, I appreciate your feedback and Tilly really enjoyed her treats.

  • "Lovely location."

    Beautiful gardens. Accommodation is small, would benefit from better mattresses on the beds, less furniture throughout. Nice touch with welcome goodies, but feel bread, butter and milk would be more beneficial than treats. A guest comments book in the property and garden table and chairs to enjoy the outside would enable people staying to make the most of the views. A fly spray, fly swats or fly catchers would be great as we had a bad fly infestation, throughout the property. The owner is lovely and very accommodating.

    Hi Elaine, Thank you for your feedback and it's nice to know you enjoyed the location and beautiful gardens here at Low Skibeden Holiday Cottage, along-side the accommodating hospitality from myself. In response to your comments, the mattress’s are checked and turned after every stay and garden furniture is readily available upon request, as I explained when you arrived. The "Goodies" are a welcoming treat and to offer bread and butter would not be to everybody’s dietary requirements, as proved in the past. However, it is nice to know you noticed and enjoyed the treats and as always there was a pint of milk already in the fridge. Unfortunately the flies are a seasonal issue which are caused by the disturbance of the neighbouring farm buildings which are cleaned out in preparation for the long winter months ahead. I can assure you there is no fly infestation within the cottage itself, had you raised this with me the appropriate action would have been taken. There is a swatter and fly spray under the kitchen sink in a box. Once again, it’s nice to know you enjoyed the all-round location and the hospitality you received from myself. Property Owner

  • "This is THE place to go to get away from noise (silence is golden!"

    ) & the rat race. Superbly located, within easy reach of Skipton and the awesome Yorkshire Dales. The owner could not have been more welcoming; fresh milk, choc eclairs and packets of treats! Well done.

  • "Very good position overlooking Skipton."

    Friendly personal welcome and generous welcome items. Comfortable seating and sleeping facilities. Plenty of space for parking and sitting in the garden. Occasionally some noise from nearby road but not intrusive. Kitchen area compact, but has all essentials. Would stay again.

    Hi David, Good to hear back from you and thanks very much for your review.

    The owner was lovely and views from property fantastic,the cottage itself has everything you could want but it's so dated ,the stairlift was a fantastic help, but the kitchen was like it was stuck in the 70s,the iron was so old,the decor again so old,it really needs a good lick of paint and bringing up to date,There was a pack of cards there we played the 1st night but they felt so grubby,it really needs a sort out ,saying that it was warm,beds were comfy and powerful shower

    Hi Joanne, Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts with me. Feedback from my customers is very important as it keeps me striving for the high level of customer satisfaction that I always aim to achieve. It’s really nice to know how pleased you were with the hospitality you received from me and that you enjoyed the fantastic views, along side benefiting from the stairlift. The 17th century cottage is very traditional and unique, I believe the decor and furniture compliment and add character to the cottage. All the appliances are fully tested and compliant to rules and regulations. Thanks again Joanne for your review, I will take your comments on-board and I hope you enjoyed your stay in the Yorkshire Dales. All the very best, Heather. Property Owner

  • "A lovely cosy cottage."

    The owner is delightful, and although the cottage is adjoined to the owners property,, our privacy was ensured. The beds were very comfortable, and the kitchen has everything we needed. We would definitely recommend this cottage, which minutes away from skipton, and regardless of whether you are fit and widh to walk in the dales or like us, disabled and just relaxed enjoying the view and the tranquility, it is well worth booking. The shower is amazing and the stairlift is a boon.

Situated on the outskirts of the stunning Yorkshire Dales National Park is this characterful two-bedroom property, Low Skibeden Cottage.

Enjoying an immaculately-presented enclosed garden, a traditional interior and close proximity to the local amenities and stunning landscapes, Low Skibeden Cottage welcomes three guests to bask in the perfect rural escape to North Yorkshire.

Pull up in the off-road parking space and amble through your very own private garden, complete with picnic bench so you can enjoy the afternoon sun and make your way into an open-plan living space.

Discover a fully-fitted kitchen where the designated chef can rustle up a delectable feast to be enjoyed over a bottle of wine at the dining table; a plush sofa and two armchairs complete this space, curating the perfect homely spot to unwind in the warmth of a coal-effect gas fire whilst you enjoy some light entertainment on the TV.

Ascend the staircase, or utilise the stairlift if required, to the first floor where two charming bedrooms, a double and a single both with ample storage, await; along the hall find a handy shower room where you can freshen ahead of a day of adventures.

Venture into the nearby market town of Skipton, home to the 12th century fortress Skipton Castle and the Craven Museum and Gallery, as well as a multitude of pubs, bars, restaurants, and boutique stores where you can treat your loved ones; from your doorstep you can also visit the stunning grounds of Bolton Abbey and cross the famous stepping stones.

Travel by car to Ilkley where you can test out your golf swing at Ilkley Golf Club, take a relaxing stroll around the grounds of Darwin Gardens or scramble the Ilkley Moor Cow and Calf Rocks.

Further afield, admire 17 acres of diverse gardens and activities at Valley Gardens Harrogate or test out some of the local delicacies on a Yorkshire Appetite Food Tour; from your doorstep you can also visit the city of York, home to Yorkminster, York City Walls and Clifford’s Tower.

All of this and more awaits at Low Skibeden Cottage.

About the location

SKIPTON

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. Golf, swimming, squash, tennis and snooker are all available locally and the excellent public transport means the car can be left at home!
