    “Acorn cottage was just as described on the website , with spotless contemporary interior.”

    It was very well equipped. They had left a basket with various goodies in which was very much appreciated so no rushing out for bread ,milk ,or butter and jam. It only takes about five minutes to walk into the town but it is on a hill and then you have to go down steps so not suitable if walking is a problem. It is in a good location for visiting the local area, Grassington is worth a visit and Burnsall is lovely to take children for a picnic by the river as they can play in the river.

Set over two floors and sleeping up to four guests, Acorn Cottage is a well decorated and well-located setting for your next North Yorkshire adventure, within easy reach of the Yorkshire Dales National Park and Harrogate.

A sought-after on-road parking spot greets you on arrival, along with a neat patio out front as you step into the cottage, where there is room for shoes and coats before turning right into the sitting room where there is a warming woodburning fire, two snug sofas and a TV for your entertainment.

Moving through the house, there is a well-equipped kitchen/diner, with all the handy whitegoods included and table seating for up to six people to toast to a wonderful holiday.

Climbing the staircase to the first floor there is a shower room which is connected via a Jack-and-Jill door to one of the double bedrooms, which has a TV and ample storage space to unpack your belongings, there is also a second double bedroom with a TV and an en-suite shower room where you can get freshly prepared for the day ahead.

You can enter to the rear patio from the kitchen to find some garden furniture, making it the perfect spot to enjoy some al fresco dining.

There is also an external shed / Boot Room, which is perfect for muddy dogs, boots or bikes, complete with a belfast sink, electric boot dryer / warmer, electric dog dryer and a portable dog / bike shower.

A short, scenic drive will bring you to the breath-taking Yorkshire Dales which is home to two Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty; Nidderdale and the Forest of Bowland, making it the perfect place for a picturesque walk, climb or cycle.

About the location

SKIPTON

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!
