  • "Comfortable, clean and beautifully decorated."

    Very well equipped. Super position overlooking the canal. Lots of walking along the canal path. However, as older people, we did find the stairs difficult - they had a turn at the bottom end with no safety rail, and there was no safety rail in the shower either. ( I did leave a note for the owner mentioning this). Otherwise everything was fine, and a new smart TV too!

    Thanks for your review Sandra and really glad you enjoyed your stay at Bridge End Property Owner

  • "We have just spent 3 nights over the Bank Holiday weekend on 24th May and found the property very clean and comfortable with a great location."

    It was lovely relaxing in the living room watching the narrow boats move along the canal. Only minor negative is that the cottage is advertised as having a dish washer, unfortunately it doesn’t. Regardless of not having a dish washer, we would still recommend the property.

  • "We should have been contacted re key collection thus did not happen and we had to contact you."

    When we arrived the TV did not work we tried several times to contact the owner by phone and e mail to no avail we then contacted you. I did not need all this hassle on a three night break. The owner came over and said thst they had had the same problem before and probably needed a new television. If a property is let then all the facilities should be working. Not very satisfactory.

    Our guests are contacted in the 48 hours before their visit, thank you for contacting us before we contacted you. Once again sorry about the problem with the TV caused by the storm and glad it worked fine once reset Property Owner

  • "A very pleasant, cosy house with a lovely view."

    The location is close to the station and the centre, yet very quiet. The kitchen is well equipped for cooking. Everything is as described except that there is no dishwasher.

The property

Bridge End, a delightful holiday home in the town of Skipton within the scenic countryside of North Yorkshire, the gateway to the Yorkshire Dales.

With a lovely interior and spacious bedrooms this property is sure to make your escape a truly memorable one.

The rooms are very light and airy, having a great feeling of space and light ensuring once you enter you feel well away from the outside world and yet the convenience of the shops, bars and restaurants of Skipton are a delightful short stroll away.

Upon arriving at your new humble abode, your own private and enclosed front patio will guide you inside the property where you will find a fully equipped dining kitchen with everything one could need for whipping up those delicious home-cooked meals.

Moving into the property there is an inviting living room that is perfect for you and your group to unbuckle your boots and get your feet up in front of the fire, watching TV or gazing at the boats passing by on the canal right alongside the house.

Its quite fun watching them navigate through the swing bridge just down below your viewing point.

As well as the hills in the background there are gorgeous views down onto the canal from both bedrooms and the living room which ensures that you wake up everyday and have the joy of pulling back the curtains to reveal the picturesque landscape. In those mornings, why not get yourselves ready for the day's adventures with a nice hot rinse in the lovely shower room which offers plenty of space to freshen up both before and after your days out.

Once you're all settled in, the town of Skipton is right on your doorstep with several attractions on offer such as Skipton Castle which transports you all the way back to medieval times, Craven Museum & Gallery for an insight into the town's past and the highly praised Le Caveau Restaurant for when the chef of the group deserves a night off.

Should your day take you further afield, the surrounding countryside has plenty on offer with its famous Embsay & Bolton Abbey Steam Railway as well as a whole host of scenic sports for walks in Janet's Foss, Kilnsey Park and Scaleber Force Waterfall.

Harrogate is easily accessed by car and also has plenty on show with the standout Great Yorkshire Show and Valley Gardens with seasonal flower displays and art deco pavilion.

Whatever the weather, Bridge End is sure to make your Yorkshire escape a special one

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!
