  • “The house was in an ideal area for access to all amenities and a short drive to Harrogate and York and other tourist attractions.”

    Only down side was the steep hill up to the property and the steep stairs in the house. Maybe worth mentioning it in the description to warn elderly customers, we started to find it a bit of a struggle and we’re in our 60’s. Younger people wouldn’t find it a problem. Please don’t take this as a criticism.

About the property

Hidden at the heart of the bustling town of Skipton, is this idyllic mid-terrace dwelling, Castlewood Cottage which is perfect for avid walkers and cyclists.

Surrounded by the magnificent rolling hills of the Yorkshire Dales National Park, this three-storey holiday home provides the ultimate retreat to the countryside for families and friends alike.

Step inside this characterful abode and be greeted by a charming farmhouse kitchen boasting a plethora of appliances such as a striking Range cooker and a dishwasher, answering all of your self-catering needs.

Joining the space is an attractive dining area with quirky wallpaper and a traditional woodburning stove, a wonderful space to entertain loved ones as you indulge in a fantastic family feast and exchange your most memorable moments from the holiday so far.

Continue the evening’s festivities in the warm and homely sitting room, watching flames flicker within the electric stove whilst snuggled up on the plush cream sofas.

Head downstairs to the lower ground floor and discover a handy cloakroom and utility room hosting a washing machine and a freezer and a cloakroom, as well as a games room where you can delight in a quick game of darts or challenge friends to a game of table football.

Escape the excitement with a long soak or a rejuvenating rise in the gorgeous first-floor bathroom, before whisking yourself away to one of the three sophisticated bedrooms.

The bedrooms are comprised of a fabulous double with calming neutral hues and pretty blue accents, a chic twin with earthy green tones that can be transformed into a super-king-size on request, and a quaint single with darling white furnishings, together offering ample sleeping space for a total of five guests.

Make the most of warmer weather as you lounge in the rear garden with a gripping novel, whilst sipping on a refreshing beverage of your choice.

A perfect morning suntrap, the rear garden offers a brilliant space to spend your mornings!

Uncover the very best that Yorkshire has to offer with days spent exploring your encompassing landscapes, whether it be on a thrilling hike to Gordale Scar, or a scenic cycle along Malham Tarn Estate.

Set on both the Tour de Yorkshire and Tour de France routes, and carefully equipped with storage facilities, Castlewood Cottage is wonderfully located for cyclists looking for their ideal break away in Yorkshire.

Admire the colourful narrow boats that line the Leeds and Liverpool Canal, running through the centre of Skipton, as you continue along the banks to the medieval fortress of Skipton Castle or step back in time at the Craven Museum & Gallery.

Travel through the countryside on a journey like never before with the Embsay & Bolton Abbey Steam Railway, or spend the afternoon at the Stepping Stones Bolton Abbey before crossing the River Wharfe to the 12th-century remains of Bolton Priory.

Wander along the Welly Walk Bolton Abbey to the Valley of Desolation and spot beautiful cascading waterfalls and the imposing Bolton Abbey Aqueduct.

Take a tour of the well-manicured lawns of Parcevall Hall Gardens and head underground to Stump Cross Caverns, or enjoy a fun-filled day out for the whole family at the Georgian House of Newby Hall and Gardens.

Ride thrilling rollercoaster at Lightwater Valley Theme Park or spot exotic wildlife at Tropical World, both just a pleasant drive away.

With all this to look forward to and so much more, it's little wonder that Castlewood Cottage is the perfect choice for your next adventure in the Yorkshire Dales.

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 2014, The Sunday Times named Skipton as Britain's "best place to live" and two years later placed it among the nine best towns in Yorkshire and the North-East. 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. The town also marks the staring point for Tour de Yorkshire, a major international cycle race held every year. Golf, swimming, squash, tennis and snooker are all available locally and the excellent public transport means the car can be left at home!
