  • Mrs Hardwick

    “Very comfortable, well equipped country cottage.”

    I stayed there for 3 weeks and felt safe and secure. The cottage has a very warm feeling! Thank you for sharing your cottage.

The property

A lovely stone-built, semi-detached cottage located in an elevated position overlooking the canal and the Aire Valley, in the lovely village of Farnhill, just four miles from Skipton.

From the delightful views across the canal and countryside, to the individual styling, this Farnhill cottage is just perfect for getting away from it all and enjoying a first-class holiday.

Full of character and charm throughout, with old wooden beams, feature windows, a farmhouse-style kitchen and a cosy woodburner in a delightful fireplace with a stone surround, this Farnhill cottage is a comfortable and welcoming base for exploring the Yorkshire Dales and surrounding areas.

This lovely three-storey holiday home near Skipton features a spacious ground floor boasting a farmhouse-style kitchen with dining area, so the chef in your party can whip up a tasty meal before everyone retires to the sitting room to relax in front of the roaring woodburner and take in the lovely countryside views.

The first floor in this cottage near Skipton boasts a lovely double bedroom, a twin room and a stylish bathroom with freestanding bath, so you can luxuriate in the bubbles after a long day walking.

This delightful Skipton cottage is further enhanced by a second floor super king-size bedroom with a lovely en-suite.

Outside, the garden is accessed by French doors and a furnished patio area provides the perfect place to sit and enjoy a good book or dine in the summer sun as you watch the world go by.

The local pub, renowned for the quality of its real ales, is just a short walk, while a stroll along the canal towpath is highly recommended.

For the more energetic, the bike riding in the area is excellent, with circular routes to Skipton a particular favourite of local riders.

A lovely Yorkshire Dales cottage, perfect for friends and family to get together and enjoy this beautiful area.

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.
