  • "Cottage was really exceptional very comfortable, best one we have been to."

    Every essential was catered for. It was clean and a thank you for the little things like milk in the fridge, tea, coffee and sugar. It is also in a very convenient place for the town and canal.

    Thank you for your very positive feedback and we hope you visit us again. Property Owner

  • "We had a fabulous time in this dog friendly cottage."

    We had private parking right outside door- parking can be hard to find in Skipton! I have mobility issues and could still get to High Street in 4 minutes max from cottage, and the individual shops, restaurants, pubs, etc abound down every side street and along canal. They all serve fantastic grub and are 95% dog friendly! The cottage itself was all that we needed. Fantastically comfortable bed, huge bathroom - bath and separate shower, plus they provided a nonslip bath/shower mat which many places don’t. Outside space to sit and equipped for anyone who likes to cook - we don’t prefer cooking on holiday, but did use toaster, oven to warm plates for Bizzie Lizzie fish and chips, and frying pan one morning for eggs. Cottage was exceptionally clean - not a lot more to say EXCEPT we hope to return there next year, if not before!

    Thank you for your very positive comments. Property Owner

  • "The kitchen area could be more user friendly."

    Electric hob rather than gas would be safer as it is very close to the door. A dishwasher rather than a washing machine would save all the faffing at the sink with trays and drainer etc. a smaller fridge and a proper oven.

    Thank you for your feedback. This is a one bedroomed holiday let with not enough kitchen space for every single appliance one may find in larger kitchens. The majority of customers prefer a washing machine as opposed to a dishwasher and do not find utilising the sink an issue. Property Owner

  • "Town Cottage, Skipton."

    The plus points - central for all amenities, and private parking spot, which is rare in the middle of Skipton. The lounge and bedroom more than adequate for your needs. Downsides - kitchen very small, would be awkward to use to cook regular meals, and it’s inner door would not shut fully causing draughts.. The pipework was noisy when running taps, kitchen tap spluttered and water doused the worktop. TV and Freesat volume issues, could not change channels without a concern, as very high on HD channels and low on normal ones, and also sub titles constantly displaying on IPlayer. The low light of the week was Tuesday when the shower decided to give alternating scalding and freezing output. Informed the owner, who could not get anyone to replace it until Saturday. As the bath was unsuitable for me, due to arthretic knees, a stand-up wash was the only answer. Mainly due to later point we departed a day early.

    Thank you for your feedback. The shower was fully replaced within 4 days which was as quick as I could purchase and arrange fitting.The bath was available but I was never made aware of your arthritic knees. Property Owner

  • "The cottage is really comfortable and couldn’t be more conveniently placed for Skipton Town Centre - yet despite being only two minutes walk from the High Street it’s really quiet!"

    And it has the benefit of a parking space - highly recommended.

  • "Town Cottage is right in the centre of Skipton but you would not have known as it was so quiet."

    A minute walk and your right on the high street. Cottage was lovely, kitchen was very small but you can get around that. What can I say cottage was lovely for two. Directions to the cottage don’t take in the fact the High Street is closed on the Saturday Markets so needs to be taken into consideration. Only thing that fully stopped our enjoyment to the full was this COvID pandemic. In normal times our holiday would have been amazing. Would we recommend this cottage…that’s a big YES.

  • "Lovely cottage in a great location convenient for the Yorkshire Dales and other areas."

    Everything you need from a holiday cottage. Just ready to relax into once you have unpacked the bags. Very close to the main street but you don't know it's there. Plenty of shops coffee shops and other eateries Canal walks a stone throw away. The weather was good all week which does help in the Dales

  • "The location in a quiet street in centre of town is brilliant."

    Lovely quiet back to back with individual parking spaces. Less then 50m via an alley onto high street, every where in town easily walkable. Excellent starting point for canal walks and further afield into Dales countryside. Felt very "covid19 secure".

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!
