    Mrs Ashworth

    “Craven House worked really well for us as a weekend getaway.”

    We were two families - 13 adults and a baby. We split perfectly over the two floor sleeping accommodation, were all able to eat together comfortably, sit together in the lounge (a few of the younger guests on the floor!) and there was loads of equipment in the kitchen. We did all our own catering apart from one meal at the Woolly Sheep pub (great!) and it was very easy. The snug downstairs was a useful extra space too. The house was clean and warm and Skipton a great centre - we mooched round ...

    We were two families - 13 adults and a baby. We split perfectly over the two floor sleeping accommodation, were all able to eat together comfortably, sit together in the lounge (a few of the younger guests on the floor!) and there was loads of equipment in the kitchen. We did all our own catering apart from one meal at the Woolly Sheep pub (great!) and it was very easy. The snug downstairs was a useful extra space too. The house was clean and warm and Skipton a great centre - we mooched round the town and enjoyed walks along the canal, in the castle woods and around the countryside. We never used the car once we arrived. Parking was the only slight issue - no room at the front of the house when we arrived. We were able to find space on a side road and bring everything in via the back door. The big Tesco is only 2 minutes away, so you could always park there for a couple of hours and watch out for space to move into! We weren't disturbed by road noise at all, despite being close to a main road, the soundproofing is good! We'd be very happy to return.

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 2008 the Academy of Urbanism voted the High Street the best shopping spot in Britain, and The Copper Dragon/Greyhawk Brewery is highly rated in the CAMRA listings. 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!
