Booked Angles Cottage for a weekend for 7 adult family members to visit Grassington Dickensian Festival Skipton Christmas Market and this was a great location.
There’s comfortable parking for a couple of cars around the house and we found the the Tennant’s Arms twenty or so yards down the road didn’t complain about the odd car being left there.
The cottage itself was charming and well equipped with almost everything you could want for a comfortable stay. All the bedrooms were comfortable clean and spacious. The very comfortable lounge with it’s log burning stove was a great gathering place.
The kitchen is fully equipped with most requirements including a decent coffee machine, the only criticism of the kitchen could be the size of the cooker, if you where cooking a meal for ten it would be a push. The rest of the downstairs consists of a decent sized dining room and the aforementioned lounge and a number of service rooms including a drying room with the boiler, a wash room that houses two extra fridges as well as the laundry items. Also on the ground floor you have a toilet.
On the 1st floor you have the five bedrooms, one bathroom with a rolled top bath, equipped with a very poor shower, and toilet. A second bathroom with a much more reasonable over bath shower is at the far end of the corridor along with a separate toilet.
All in all a great hideaway in a lovely part of the country.
However I must make a note of number faults that truthfully would not cost a fortune to correct and would further improve the experience of the stay.
Strangely most of the bedrooms have no locks on the doors with several of them having no catches at all and the bathroom and toilet doors have hook and eye catches in stead of bolts or locks, quite strange and leads to most of the doors being left slightly ajar when occupied.
For a house that can accommodate ten guests you only have one effective shower as the one over the roll topped bath is only just adequate to rinse your hair but definitely not for showering.
Also the WiFi is just about usable but crashes if several people try using it together.
Is this a place I’d visit again, definitely, but several points do been addressing if prices are to be justified.
