  • "Canal View Cottage must surely be the nicest cottage we have ever stayed in - beautifully furnished, well equipped, spotlessly clean and with many thoughtful touches."

    The owners provided lots of helpful information both in advance and in the cottage and were easily contactable by text with any queries. Although just a short distance from the main road between Keighley and Skipton the cottage's location is idyllic and peaceful, overlooking the canal and the Aire valley, with the little settlement of Kildwick with its pub, church and tearoom just a short walk away along the towpath. The nearby village of Crosshills has shops, eateries and other facilities and could be reached on foot. This part of Yorkshire offers many places of interest only a few miles away from Canal View Cottage and a week was not enough! we hope to go back

    Thank you so much for your review Joyce. You were perfect guests and we would be delighted to welcome you back again anytime! Property Owner

  • "The cottage is quiet and cosy, and the owner has put so much thought into all the nice touches around the house, including a delightful welcome pack, which we thoroughly enjoyed!"

    Thank you! We had a lovely stay, and could of happily stayed longer. Perfect for two, would be a squash for 3 or 4 people, especially when eating meals. The kitchen was well equipped for preparing meals. We had everything we needed during our stay. The location is good, with lovely canal walks/fishing, from the door. There is good access to main roads, and lots to see and do in the area. The pub round the corner is very friendly. The house next door is currently empty, so the property was peaceful and quiet.

    Thanks for your feedback. We're glad you enjoyed your stay and hope to welcome you back again. Regards, Tricia and Andy. Property Owner

  • "Everything was fine, apart from the shower which seemed to flood the floor every time in used."

    which made the floor mat provided soaking wet. There needs to be a covering/door to keep the water from leaking into the floor perhaps. The front door didn’t seem to close properly without proper force when leaving the property.

    Thanks for your feedback. As you may have seen, our feedback is usually excellent and you're the only guests to have had these issues so we're sorry you didn't make us aware during your stay. We're at the property every week for change-overs and there's no apparent problem with the front door which is the type where you fully lift the handle to lock. Re the shower, as with all walk-in showers, it has no door so a little care does need to be taken, especially if using the detachable head. Property Owner

  • "We had a wonderful week in Canal View Cottage."

    It is ideally located next to the canal which which allows you sit outside and watch the boats go by or take in some of the wonderful walks available. Canal View Cottage is beautifully presented by the owners with much thought given to the decor and furnishings. It is ideally situated to allow you to visit some of the nicest parts of the Yorkshire Dales. On the hospitality side about five minutes away is The White Lion Inn which is very friendly, serves excellent food and drink and has a lovely beer garden.

    Thank you for the excellent feedback. We're so pleased you enjoyed the cottage and surrounding area and look forward to welcoming you back again. Property Owner

The property

Farnhill 0.6 miles.

Set at the heart of the quaint village of Kildwick, near Farnhill, overlooking the Aire Valley, lies this delightful, two-bedroom holiday home, Canal View Cottage.

Overlooking and set upon the tranquil waters of the Leeds and Liverpool canal, this charming cottage boasts well-presented living spaces, great positioning to nearby amenities, and superb proximity to the Yorkshire Dales National Park and the Nidderdale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, making it a fantastic base for a family looking for their next relaxing escape to the Yorkshire Dales.

After you've unpacked your belongings, make yourself at home in your lovely new lodgings, where a fully-equipped kitchen/diner awaits the chosen chef, complete with all the appliances required to whip up tasty, home-cooked meals.

Savour your culinary creations at the dining table, before you retreat to the plush sitting room where you can enjoy a film on the Smart TV, kept warm by a well-appointed, gas log-effect stove.

As day rolls into night, refresh with a long, hot shower before you finally retire for a well-earned rest in one of two inviting bedrooms.

If you can tear yourself away from your peaceful new dwelling, take time to explore what your local surroundings have to offer.

Embark on a scenic walk alongside the calm waters of the canal that’s located right outside of the cottage; take a walk into Kildwick, where you can settle down for a delicious pub lunch at The White Lion pub, which has a gorgeous setting and beer garden, offering excellent, traditional pub fare, or even a little spot of coffee at Coffee & Crumbs; or go a step further and head on-foot across the river to the neighbouring village of Cross Hills, which is home to the serene greens of Glusburn Park, the historic landmark of Lund's Tower, as well as the popular dining spots of 22 The Square, the Old White Bear Public House and Restaurant, and the Dog & Gun country inn.

Enjoy the ultimate escape to Yorkshire when you book a stay at Canal View Cottage.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £250.

About the location


Skipton 4 miles; Harrogate 22 miles.

The attractive village of Farnhill lies in the Aire Valley, alongside the Leeds to Liverpool canal, just 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 village’s heyday as a 19th century centre for hand loom weaving and lead mining. Farnhill is home to an excellent local pub, and the village is within walking distance of Cross Hills where a number of old pubs, shops and good restaurants can be found, while the nearby mainline railway station has good links to Leeds, Skipton and the famous Settle-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, which has regular steam train excursions at the weekend.
