  • "As soon as we walked through the cottage door, we felt completely comfortable and at home."

    It is ultra clean and decorated to a very high standard. The location is fantastic for touring around and visiting different places, but equally there are some lovely walks from the door, most notably the serene canal walk, and the walk up to the 'Pinnacle' (just at the top of the road) has breathtaking views of the surrounding hills and countryside. All in all, an excellent break. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend! Many thanks!

  • "The property is beautiful, bed really comfortable too."

    There was everything we needed. The only thing I would suggest is maybe using plastic free washing up brushes and sponges given that I imagine they are only used once per guest. Otherwise it was lovely and I would love to come back again.

  • "We were delighted with the cottage."

    It was well equipped,very comfortable and cosy for a couple. The location near the canal was great for some easy cycling to explore the area which also had good walks. The description on the website was accurate - it didn’t mention there is a washing machine ( not that we needed to use it, but useful to know) I will recommend this cottage to friends and family. We thoroughly enjoyed exploring this part of England,it has a lot to offer and the people are friendly!

The property

Cross Hills 0.9 miles.

Resting within striking distance of the Yorkshire Dales National Park and situated between the towns of Skipton and Keighley is this quaint terraced cottage, Foxglove.

Nestled within a picturesque part of the country, this romantic retreat is the ultimate escape to tranquility for a couple wishing to explore the rolling moorland of the National Park and explore the surrounding historical landmarks.

Step into the sitting room where the exposed beams highlight the character of the dwelling and the woodburning stove offers a sense of comfort during the winter evenings as you and your partner curl up in front of the Smart TV.

Beyond here is the contemporary kitchen, fulfilling your culinary needs to cater for your own home-cooked meals, whether it be a hearty breakfast or a delicious supper.

If the weather is on your side, head to the shared terrace area, where a glass of wine can be enjoyed whilst you catch the final glimpses of sunshine before heading to bed.

Venture up the staircase to find a plush king-size bed and a gleaming en-suite bathroom, complete with a shower over bath.

If you don’t fancy playing chef for the evening, head into the village of Cross Hills where a selection of eateries awaits catering to all palettes, as well as a number of shops for picking up the essentials.

For days out whilst staying at Foxglove be sure to take your bike to the National Park and explore miles of endearing routes and taking in the breath-taking scenery of the ancient woodland and moorland.

If a spot of history is more your thing, Skipton plays host to an 11th century castle whilst the nearby village of Haworth is where the world-famous Bronte sisters once lived.

Alternatively, the city of Leeds is slightly further afield and hosts a larger selection of amenities and attractions to explore.

Foxglove is a wonderful retreat for exploring the delights of Yorkshire with your partner.
