  • “Very comfortable clean cottage , the stairs are pretty step, but i have found that to be the case in four cottages that i have rented so far in Skipton .”

    But everything worked well in the cottage and as it,s only been on the market i think for this year you could tell how new all the fittings were, also very handy being that end of skipton for the railway station and only a ten minute walk into the center of the town. So very happy with my stay there even had two nice days of weather at the end of the week.

The property

Ermysted's Cottage is a stone-built, terraced cottage positioned in a quiet backwater location within the ever-popular market town of Skipton.

This Skipton cottage is full of character and retains much charm of a 'bygone age', making an ideal retreat for couples or small families.

After a day of touring the North Dales, you can look forward to unwinding in the sitting room, tuning into your favourite TV shows whilst the fire provides a gentle warmth to the room.

Continue into the well-designed contemporary kitchen, boasting a plethora of appliances including an electric oven and gas hob, along with all the utensils and crockery needed for a sumptuous family feast.

Climb the staircase to the first floor and be greeted by two lovely bedrooms; the master bedroom includes a lavish king-size bed, whilst the second bedroom is home to a full sized single. Here you will also find a sizable shower room with walk-in shower unit.

Head out to the enclosed garden for a breath of fresh air, or pop on your walking boots and waterproof coats for a great outdoor adventure.

Often known as ‘The Gateway to the Yorkshire Dales’, it’s no surprise that Skipton has become a firm favourite amongst holidaymakers.

Explore the medieval castle and its ancient woodland, take canal boat trips or relish in a day at the swimming pool, golf course or tennis courts.

Skipton also has a network of walks including gentle rambles and challenging fell walks within close proximity of the town.

The award-winning High Street is a short walk away and offers a great choice of restaurants, tea rooms, coffee shops and fish and chip shops, whilst the traditional market sells fresh produce throughout the year such as local cheeses, fish, meat and fresh vegetables.

Not forgetting that the Yorkshire Dales is on your doorstep; discover the beautifully restored Embasy & Bolton Abbey Steam Railway, Stepping Stones, and The Strid Ancient Woodland.

Escape to the admirable Yorkshire countryside with a stay at Ermysted's Cottage.

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!
