  • "This property is superb."

    It is extremely well equipped, comfortable and ideally situated. B&M is visible from the bedroom window and Morrisons is another 2 minutes walk. Fish and Chips are 3 minutes walk and a lovely Thai restaurant 3 minutes the other way. Plenty of pubs within 10 minutes and the Canal 5 minutes. Can't think of anywhere better.

    It was a pleasure letting out to you and your family at navigation square. Glad you had a lovely golden anniversary celebrating in skipton. Property Owner

  • "Great place to stay couldn’t be any closer to the town and train station."

    On arrival a welcome bottle of wine - thank you. Beds big and comfy showers hot and powerful. Kitchen small and compact but still managed to do a Sunday roast …..Neighbours really friendly but actually can say that about everyone in Skipton . Eating out lots of choice and good value for money . We’ve been to The Dales Country Cottage,, The Royal Shepherd Inn and Terrace Tea Rooms this time but previously Elsworth Kitchen and La Casita. On departure day I suggest Keelham Kitchen - a little more expensive but portions are huge so you could share- amazing hash browns and you can purchase Lotti Shaws Parkin biscuits.Activities done cycling trips( oh those hills) on the train to Leeds to see relatives and try out the climbing wall. Also visited Skipton health and fitness for yoga and ballet classes.Would definitely recommend staying here though modern , note the house has 3 sets of stairs so may not suit all.

    Hi Anita. I’m so glad you had a lovely time and thanks for the great feedback. Just wondering what more I could do to get the 75 score higher. What would have made your stay a 100% Property Owner

  • "It was a lovely property and very convenient for the town centre which was great."

    The only downside was the late check in and early checkout when we were just there for the weekend. It was a big rush to get out on Sunday morning as the purpose of our stay was a family wedding and late night. Would have been fine if we had been staying for longer. Nice touches with chocolates and wine.

  • "Our week’s stay at 9 Navigation Square was superb, this is an excellent property for a family of up to eight people."

    Centrally located near the canal, a short walk from the station and from the high street, very comfortable, with every thing you could ask for and more. A couple of parking spaces make it easy to access (with long stay car parks nearby for overflow). The balcony/patio area is a sunny spot to idle away a few warm minutes. There are cafes, shops, restaurants and pubs within a few hundred yards/metres. Skipton is a bustling market town, with cinema, little theatre, a Castle and great walks (including castle Woods and along the flat tow paths) for. the more adventurous. Just out of town there is the Steam Railway and an American Diner/Ice Cream parlour on a farm a few miles further away, towards Bolton Abbey, also worth a visit. Loads to do and see in the area for all the family.

    3min walk from the highstreet (and then skipton castle), 6minute walk from tesco and morrisons, and 6min walk from the train station. House was very comfortable, beds had linens and bathrooms were clean. In the living room there was a big chest filled with DVDs of different genres (some suitable for kids too), Nintendo DSs and a handful of games, and some board games - this was a lovely surprise. The TV had a netflix account ready logged in which was brilliant. Kitchen was very modern, everything worked - dishwasher and washing machine. Don't have anything bad to say about the actual house, we were very happy during our stay. Only thing that ruined it was that 2 weeks after check out I received an email claiming we left damages, and in the following 2 weeks in which it took them to answer me, we were quite disappointed as we had been very careful throughout the stay, however, when they support eventually got back to me they sorted the whole thing. Very happily go again, lovely place.

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!
