  • "My friend and i went for a restful few days away after a bad illness."

    i did not know the owners lived next door or i wouldn't of booked it, we felt like we could not relax, that's maybe just us. The beds are a nightmare, their so uncomfortable, you felt like your back was breaking, we came home a day earlier because we couldn't bear the thought of another night in them beds. the cold tap did not work if we had told the owners they probably would of fixed it but we just wanted to be left alone.

  • "The property was in a good location."

    However we were disappointed with the overall standard of accommodation as the furniture and fittings need to be updated. The mattresses were very uncomfortable, the bedding and towels looked faded and old. The kitchen units were falling apart and had a musty smell.

  • "Such a lovely, comfortable bungalow that has everything you will need to make a self catering holiday in Skipton a great stay, with added bonus of driveway parking."

    Extremely clean, comfortable, wifi, just perfect for family of 3. The lovely welcoming owners only live next door should you need anything. Highly recommend. There's also a bus stop a few minutes walk to the Main Street with another 5 - 10 min bus ride into Skipton town itself.

  • "This was our first venture out post lockdown."

    Felt extremely safe in the village environment. Enjoyed the walks in and around Embsay and even had three meals in the local pubs which is something we haven't done in the city yet. Thank you for a lovely break. The bungalow was excellent and the owners who live next door were friendly and unobtrusive. Will certainly try to return sometime next year.

  • "The house was warm and cosy and had all we needed."

    The owners were very kind, helpful and unobtrusive. The house was decorated for Christmas in a very pleasant understated way and we enjoyed our stay.

  • "Lovely compact bungalow on the outskirts of skipton."

    Milk and bread in the fridge on arrival, every kind of utensil and equipment in the kitchen to prepare meals, owners just next door if any problems crop up (they didn’t). Would highly recommend this to anyone wanting to spend some time pottering around in the Yorkshire dales or doing some strenuous walking. Would certainly return

  • "A well appointed bungalow in a lovely part of the country."

    Every amenity was available in the bungalow including toilet paper and washing up necessities. You were good to go straight away. We did not meet the owners as they themselves were away on holiday but the place was immaculate. Lots to see and do around the Skipton area but the Embsay location was very peaceful and quiet. I would recommend this bungalow to all.

  • "A cosy and comfortable cottage in quiet surroundings."

    The only issues were that the TV is very small and the wifi set up is a bit strange but it worked well most of the time. Parking was easy in the large paved area in front of the cottage.

  • "Your presentation of this cottage contains the following statement: "The spacious rear garden of this Embsay cottage is ideal for dining alfresco."

    .." Anyone considering a holiday in this cottage should be aware that the owners (who live next door) have direct access to its rear garden via gates in their boundary fence. Part of the cottage garden is used by them as a vegetable plot, which they enter to cultivate and water (we were staying in summer) without notice. This means that anyone wanting to use the cottage garden for "dining alfresco" or anything else should be aware that the owners are liable to appear in the garden at any time. We had this experience a couple of times, including one morning for several hours. Some people will not mind this, while others may feel that they do not have the full run of a facility (the cottage garden) that appears to form part of the advertised offer. The owner's use of the cottage water supply (via an outside tap) to water his plants can also mean there is not enough water pressure inside the cottage for showers etc. The cottage itself is excellent, clean and good value for money.
