  • "The cottage was well equipped and the instructions for use were thorough."

    We particularly appreciated the fresh flowers and the cakes, fruit, wine and other provisions left for us which far exceeded those normally provided in previous places we've stayed. Tony couldn't have been more welcoming and happy to provide any help he could.

    It was very well equipped and we could not fault the cottage. Tony, the owner, was very helpful and ensured that we were happy with the cottage.

  • "Wonderful experience as this was our first holiday in the UK after health issues."

    The cottage was warm and inviting and the owner added a few extra touches, flowers on the table, daily essentials in the fridge, fresh fruit and a nice cold bottle of prosecco too. Every where was spotlessly clean. The location was very good and close to all amenities. Will definitely go back again, hopefully the weather will be a bit kinder then we can sit out in the garden. For us it was just what we needed.

    Tony was so helpful. He provided us with detailed walks that were lovely and so relaxing. Lovely welcoming gifts also, to make our trip even more special.

  • "Upstairs needs updating."

    The shower is difficult to operate. A welcome information packet should be supplied. Also parking advice.

    Please see my other reviews. This is very frustrating: a welcome pack was emailed to you (inc. parking advice) / the shower is electric and simply requires the push of a button and the turn of a dial / I let you arrive early and stay late - but there is no mention of this. Property Owner

    The cottage was perfect for us - it had everything we needed and the view was wonderful. The owner Tony is great for offering ideas for things to do in Skipton and is super helpful.

  • "Tony gave us a great welcome and a generous welcome pack, both of which were much appreciated."

    The cottage is very well equipped with everything you need and comfortable. Great views over Skipton to the far hills from the lounge, bedroom and outside decking. You can walk down to the canal in 5 minutes, and on to Gargrave if you feel like it. Skipton has many cafes, independent shops and well known supermarkets. Note the stairs in the cottage are steep, but there is a sturdy handrail. Lovely stay.

    The cottage is perfect for exploring the local area or just having a place to stay to kick back and recharge the batteries while enjoying the fabulous uninterrupted views over the town and southern hills. Everything was provided to ensure that our stay was as pleasant as possible - I especially enjoyed the complementary wine and my partners loved the flowers. The cottage was beautifully maintained and immaculate inside and out.

    Tony is the perfect host and everything required for a comfortable stay is provided. The cottage has one of the best views in Skipton and the large south-facing windows offer a perfect vista overlooking the town and the distant hills. Parking is available outside the property and we never had any problems finding a space. The cottage is situated a short walk from the town centre, local amenities and nearby walks - a really fantastic location. Highly recommended; we'll be back!

    Up a short, steep hill, it had lovely views from the deck, over Skipton and the surrounding countryside. A five minute walk took us to the town centre. It was an easy, comfortable place for two people to stay. It was very well equipped and Tony had generously provided many items in addition to the basic welcome pack, including flowers and fruit. He also kept in touch to ensure we had all we needed. A very pleasant small traditional house for a short break in a beautiful place.

Just do not turn up in a big car because you will have trouble parking it!

    Plus points - The owner left us a much appreciated welcome pack of food and some fresh flowers. Although a traditional terraced house it has fresh, modern decor and mod cons such as induction hub, smart speakers and internet TV Well-equipped kitchen. Beautiful views over Skipton from the house or the decking area to the rear. Loads of space for luggage, etc. Warm and comfortable with effective central heating and stove-style gas fire Quiet area, but just a short wak to the scenic canal area and the town centre. It would have been a bonus to have a vacuum cleaner for odd spilt crumbs, bit that's a minor point. Also the stairs are fairly steep, which is something to consider if you are not very fit. All in all we had a lovely stay and would highly recommend this property.

    We stayed here in September so when we had planned a short Christmas trip to South Yorkshire it was a no brainer to add on a few days in North Yorkshire, and there was only one place we wanted to stay. With all the uncertainty about travel at the moment Tony was very accommodating and kept us up to date with options as others changed their bookings. When we arrived the Christmas tree was up and the candles lit (rechargeable ones that is) in the lounge so it was homely as soon as you walked through the door. Already planning a stay in 2022.

The property

Sitting at the centre of the excitement within the lively town of Skipton, you will find the charming dwelling of 4 Prospect Place.

Just a stone's throw away from the vast green landscapes of the Yorkshire Dales, this warm and inviting abode is the perfect base from which to enjoy the very best that the English countryside has to offer.

As you step inside this newly-refurbished home, discover an attractive and traditional sitting room featuring two plush sofas and an eye-catching gas stove, ideal for snuggling up and enjoying an entertaining evening indoors on those cold winter nights.

Continuing through the property, a well-designed contemporary kitchen can be found boasting a plethora of appliances such as an electric oven and hob, as well as hosting a pretty country-style dining table where you can indulge in many delicious meals.

Climb the staircase up to the first floor and be greeted by two lovely bedrooms; the master bedroom includes a king-size zip & lock bed, which can be divided into two separate single beds if required, whilst a second bedroom is home to a futon, allowing for flexible sleeping arrangements.

Here you will also find a sizable bathroom with both a bath and shower over.

Head out to the enclosed garden for a breath of fresh air, or grab your walking boots and waterproof coats and head for the great outdoors.

Often referred to as 'The Gateway to the Yorkshire Dales', it's little wonder that Skipton has become a firm favourite amongst many holiday makers.

Spend your days wandering the canals that line the town, or delight in a tour of the 12th century Skipton Castle and the Craven Museum and Gallery.

See the beautifully-restored Embsay & Bolton Abbey Steam Railway, or head deeper into the Yorkshire Dales to discover the Stepping Stones, Bolton Abbey and The Strid Ancient Woodland.

Admire colourful flowers and the well-kept lawns of Parcevall Hall Gardens, or discover the quirky and unqiue geological site of Malham Cove on an awe-inspiring hike through the Malham Tarn Estate.

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. Golf, swimming, squash, tennis and snooker are all available locally and the excellent public transport means the car can be left at home!
