    We were looking to stay in or around skipton for a week, and wanted 3 bedrooms for our kids to sleep in separately. Our first impression was that the property was a little bit small and dark, however we warmed to the place over the course of the week. Our kids are aged 1.5 and 4. The stairs are steep although handily there is a door at the bottom which stops our youngest climbing them. Upstairs was a different story with the risk of a tumble so we were careful and watched our toddler like a hawk when he was upstairs. The property was clean and tidy when we arrived. We had to move some breakable stuff out of reach of little hands though, however it was mostly child friendly. Upstairs there are 3 bedrooms and a bathroom. 2 double bedrooms and a single. One of the double bedrooms has lots of storage space and a bit of extra floor space. The other double has a chest of drawers but it's pretty tight (no space for a travel cot and no hanging space which was fine for us). The single bedroom has a small wardrobe. There were bedside tables throughout. There is also a travel cot which we didn't try as we brought our own (paranoid!). The bathroom is a standard affair with toilet basin and bath with electric shower everything clean and worked fine. There were some nice touches such as bath toys for the kids etc. The Wi-Fi worked fine and there was a coffee machine which we didn't try. Microwave was a bit annoying as the timer doesn't work so we had to time stuff using phones etc. There was a high chair which came in handy. It was nice to have some essentials provided in the kitchen. The owners obviously care and this sort of thing makes a difference. I'm talking about stuff like cling film, washing up liquid etc. Overall we had a great holiday. Generally we aren't the the people who would do the same holiday twice so we won't be back, but we certainly don't regret booking 21 Hallams yard.

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!
