  • "A well presented holiday cottage, well equipped and with a pleasant, private outside space."

    The road outside is very busy and noisy, not too much of a problem when the windows are shut but could be a problem in warmer weather when windows are open. It wasn't a problem for us as we were only a couple staying but I would mention that there isn't a master suite as mentioned in the cottage description. Upstairs there are three good size bedrooms. The "shower room" is literally just a shower in a cupboard across the hall and there is no sink in there so after showering in a very confined space you have to come out into the hall and then go in to the bathroom, also accessed from the hall, to finish getting ready - may be a problem if there are other people in your party. The bathroom is spacious but shower cannot be used so options are limited. The downstairs cloakroom was another confined space that opened directly into the dining room and so not ideal. None of the rooms appeared to have a super king size bed as stated. We did enjoy our stay and appreciated the easy walk into town along the canal towpath and it was an ideal location for exploring further afield.

  • "Lovely well equipped house."

    Plenty of living and bedroom space. Plenty of towels and spare bedding . Televisions in every bedroom and living rooms. The bathroom was a beautiful feature room. The only negative we had, because of our family set up, was the cramped shower facilities and lack of a dryer. The house had excellent access to the canal, railway station and bus stops. 15 minutes walk gets you into the town centre where you have food and drink for every budget. All the pubs we used were staffed by friendly people.

  • "The cottage was spotlessly clean, well equipped and in a fantastic location for both the train station (we holidayed by train) and town centre."

    We are frequent users of self catering accommodation and this was one of the best we've ever been in. I read many of the previous reviews and some had unbelievably petty comments, none of the issues mentioned were real issues or affected us in any way, so don't be put off. Maybe the front rooms used to be noisy due to the road and railway opposite, but the acoustic window mentioned certainly sorted that as we had no noise issues at all. We were very comfortable in Angel Cottage and slept well every night. We would certainly book this property again.

Large Morrisons and B&M across the road for all your supplies,plus plenty of choice of restaurants 10-15 minutes walk.Rear parking for one car plus space for one street parking We were a family of 6 and the cottage gave us everything we needed,TVs in every room,comfy beds,lots of storage,a very welcoming property overall

  • "Angel Cottage is a pleasant cottage with plenty of character."

    The listing didn’t mention how close it is to the railway station although it wasn’t a noise issue overnight at all. The rear access is a bit hairy if you have a large vehicle and it is on a busy road so care is needed when you exit. There was usually a road side space available though, so it wasn’t essential to use the rear access. The cottage is very comfortable and well equipped; two out of the three bedroom doors wouldn’t close, and we would have appreciated a wooden spoon in the kitchen. When we arrived we found a bottle of wine on the table, which was a lovely touch. The location was good for us - we know the area very well but it was the first time we had stayed in Skipton. Overall a very enjoyable stay.

  • "The property was well equipped & very comfortable."

    It was well cared for and beautifully clean. We thought there were two bathrooms in the property, one with a bath & one with a shower, plus a downstairs wc. There was a downstairs wc. There was a bathroom with a shower over the bath/shower. There was a notice on this shower advising it was for decoration only, not for use. There was a shower cubicle in a separate room, just a shower cubicle, no sink or wc. The property sleeps 6 - one usuable shower between 6 people is a potential problem. As we didn't have more than 4 of us there at once it was manageable. Yes, there is a bath. A beautiful, large, free standing bath that would have taken an age to fill. As all but one of our party are 60 over we tend to shower rather than bathe. There was no QR code in the property on arrival. There was a file on the dining table table with a phone number for a caretaker. I called this number and the caretaker advised she would contact the property owners and provide the QR code as soon as possible. Our stay began on a Saturday, the QR code arrived on Wednesday. Our friends had left (due to an unrelated issue that arose) before it arrived so did not actually check in. Shower & QR code unavailability are where Angel Cottage failed to meet expectations. In every other way it met or exceeded expectation. We had no issues with parking (two cars) or noise. For most of our stay the weather was colder and wetter than wished for so we appreciated that the heating was on. We didn't use the outside space because of the weather. It was an easy, 10 minute walk, either along the road or the canal tow path, to the bottom of Skipton high street and everything the town has to offer. A less than 5 minute walk to the train station, Aireville Park and a large supermarket. It's a bonus not to have to drive everywhere. We very much enjoyed our stay and would definitely consider booking Angel Cottage again. We'd just need a rota for the shower if there were 6 of us.

  • "The property was very much as described, which was very spacious, comfortable, clean and with good facilities."

    There was quite a bit of noise from the road outside and the railway opposite, but once the window was shut this wasn’t a problem. The other two rooms faced the rear so there was no problem. The kitchen was well equipped, the outdoor very private space perfect and the parking space at the rear was ideal. There was only one thing; we appeared to only have one bath towel per room, unless of course we didn’t find the other ones. All in all a very nice property ideally positioned for the town and the railway station and offering excellent value. Would definitely book again.

  • "If we had known that Angel Cottage was on a noisy main road we would not have booked it."

    We left early due to this as we could not relax. The pictures of the back area need updating as the 4 chair table is now in the front garden (by the main road). There are 2 large, locked storage chests on the back patio which reduces the size considerably. Not a problem for us in March. There is a designated parking space at the back of the house which is clearly signed but it was not big enough for our car. So private parking for a small car. The house is very nice inside with lots of storage and nice comfy beds. The photos are a true representation of the inside of the house. Good position for walking down the canal into Skipton and beyond with access very near. Shared garden area scruffy.

    Thank you for taking the time to leave feedback for Angel Cottage. Whilst many of our guests enjoy the ambience, I have taken your comment on board and we have arranged for acoustic glass to be fitted to reduce the noise. The back garden has now been cleared to provide as much space as possible. I am happy to hear that you enjoyed the location of the property. You can contact the customer relations department should you wish to discuss your feedback discuss further. Property Owner

    Lovely accommodation in an ideal location however the road is very noisy as is the rail yard opposite also parking was difficult

    Thank you so much for your feedback and I'm glad you liked the accommodation. I'm sorry any noise impacted your stay. Many of our guests enjoy the ambience, but I have taken your comment on board and will be looking at double/triple glazing the room in the very near future. The parking issue is also now resolved, there is a parking area at the rear which now has dedicated signage. There is also local on road parking on a first come first served basis. Property Owner

  • "Beautifully clean, all mod cons, easy walk into Skipton."

    However as this cottage sleeps 6 we consisted of grandparents and a family, hence had two cars. Parking is not good at this location. You can get in round the back but on the street in front it is near impossible. Also perhaps not clear that there is a busy road and railway line at the front. Maybe the owner could have a word with the owners at No. 20 as we were kept awake for two nights with a man talking loudly on the phone at 2am in the morning (his bedroom would be above the archway at the front). Ended up banging on the wall.

  • "Lovely cottage in a great location for all Skipton attractions, however parking can be difficult."

    On arrival there was a vehicle parked to the rear of the cottage and we had to contact neighbours to find out who owned the vehicle and get it moved. The additional on street parking was also very limited and it was often difficult to park near the cottage.

  • "The cottage was immaculate, it was great to come into a warm house."

    It was very comfortable but teabags would have been useful rather than bottle of wine. On the downside, the parking was not available as someone was parked directly behind the cottage all weekend so we had to park on the road. Also the noise in the front bedroom from the freight yard at 4.00am was quite loud. The most bothersome issue was that when we returned on the Saturday from walking, the TV was on. It would be good to know that this is on a timer or can be activated remotely. We would like you to publish this feedback but the option does not seem to be available.

    The decor was lovely and the place was really well thought out. It’s pictures on the internet don’t do it justice. We were amazed at the amount of towels , crockery, cutlery, televisions, games, dvds etc. It was like home from home with everything you could ever need. I would definitely use Sykes Cottages again and would highly recommend. The only criticisms I would make are the key safe was around the back and it was difficult to see as everything was in the dark ,a sensory light would make it easier and parking was a bit hit and miss , it seemed to be a free for all and people parked wherever they wanted which was a bit of a nightmare.

The property

Only a short walk from the high-street, Angel Cottage makes an excellent touring base for York, the Lake District and the West Coast beyond.

Perfect for families or a group of travellers, this cottage offers a unique holiday experience: a chance to come together with your loved ones and relax in comfort.

Be welcomed by the pleasant lounge, designed with a bay window, two lovely sofas and a warming fire, to set the scene for a cosy night in.

The property also has a logburner.

After preparing those delightful meals in the contemporary kitchen, why not settle down in the dining room, which also doubles up as a snug with a sumptuous sofa, so you can relax in true style?

Wander upstairs, past the park views, and choose from a selection of bedrooms including a master suite, presented as a super king-size, alongside two doubles.

All rooms benefit from TV's and the charming décor is a breath of fresh air.

To complete the formation, a shower room is easily accessible, neighboured by a family bathroom which features a roll-top bath for a touch of originality.

Prepare for the day ahead, then spend a moment or two on the patio areas outside - located to the front and back of the cottage; a nice little suntrap to plan your adventures.

The market town of Skipton has much to interest the enthusiastic visitor, from an ancient castle open to the public, a beautiful old parish church, to a colourful market occupying the cobbled setts each side of the high street as well as many vibrant restaurants and bars.

The air view park with a leisure centre plus canals with boat rides only a few minutes walk away.

Golf, swimming, squash, tennis and snooker are all available locally, and so much more.
