    The central heating was on a timer operated from the owners side of the property with no other form of heating in the cottage that we could turn on as required. No oven cloth which presented a risk getting things out of the oven. No mention was made that the exit from the property was on a bend and therefore was difficult at times exiting. Other than that it was a lovely location and we very much enjoyed the area and would go back to the same cottage again. My husband thoroughly enjoyed the fishing in the canal but would add that we did contact the local fishing association and the secretary was was extremely helpful when he purchased the permit even providing bait for him to use, my husband also had a rod licence which he obtained prior to travelling and would recommend anyone wanting to fish do so.

About the location


Grassington 9 miles; Harrogate 20 miles.

Known as “The Gateway to the Dales”, Skipton is well placed for visiting all that the Dales has to offer, whilst York, the Lake District and the West Coast are also within easy motoring distance. This lovely market town has much to interest the enthusiastic visitor, boasting an ancient castle open to the public, a beautiful old parish church and a colourful market occupying the cobbled setts each side of the high street. In 2008 the Academy of Urbanism voted the High Street the best shopping spot in Britain, and The Copper Dragon/Greyhawk Brewery is highly rated in the CAMRA listings. Steam railways with regular excursions are available at Embsay and Bolton Abbey, and the Leeds to Liverpool Canal passes through Skipton with the 1 mile long Foulridge Tunnel and the 5-rise locks at Bingley within a short travel. Golf, swimming, squash, tennis and snooker are all available locally and the excellent public transport means the car can be left at home!
