  • "Pleasent cottage as described very handy for everything in Skipton."

    Lovely cake and bottle wine also milk in fridge which was a nice touch. Small outside space at rear only negative it was over looked by surrounding property's but as so central to be expected. We have a rough collie dog who we walked every morning along canal path which is outside.

  • "Excellent cottage."

    Very clean and comfortable. In a superb location. The owner is very friendly and helpful. What would have made my stay in dray cottage better is if there was more saucepans and a chair in the bedroom.

  • "Lovely cosy cottage in great location to explore all that Skipton has to offer."

    Lovely and clean with everything you need. Great shower, tv and hairdryer in both bedrooms. Lovely welcome with a homemade cake and prosecco in fridge...cake was delicious. Lots of places to eat and Skipton has a vibrant market and town centre and some lovely places to walk. Fab little cottage situated next to the canal in a great location.

  • "Lovely cottage, warm, comfortable, well equipped, (a bit more cutlery would have been useful)."

    Fabulous position, everything on your doorstep, with easy access to other places of interest. Weekly car parking provided in public car park a few yards away, brilliant. Wifi, not good, slow and erratic, tv poor reception. Two of the gas rings didn't work, one of which the owner must have been aware of. Never the less would still recommend a stay in this lovely cottage.

The property

Tucked away close to the town centre of Skipton with views over the canal, rests this charming little abode, Dray Cottage. Boasting character throughout, this semi-detached home welcomes couples and small families looking to break away from normal life and explore this scenic Yorkshire Dales. After a day of rambling in the Dales, relax in the comfortable sitting room beside the electric woodburning stove and sink into the sofa while you browse the Smart TV for a good film. In the kitchen, you will find modern appliances including a dishwasher, an electric oven and gas hob, fridge-freezer along with all the utensils and crockery needed to whip up a tasty feast.

As you tire, head upstairs and be greeted by two delightful bedrooms; the master includes a plush super-king-size bed (which can be split into two single beds), whilst the second bedroom is home to a single bed (with 2ft 6 pull-out bed).

All the bed linen is 100% Egyptian cotton to...

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 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!
