The property

A delightful, stone-built terraced cottage, in a quiet courtyard setting less than a minute's walk from Skipton's historic high street, Town Cottage is full of character and charm, making an ideal romantic retreat with plenty to do in the surrounding area.

Enter this stunning property which has been renovated to a high standard, boasting quality fittings and lovely furnishings throughout a spacious bedroom, contemporary bathroom, a kitchen and a living/dining room.

Settle in for an evening with your other half as you rustle up a delicious home-cooked meal in the well-stocked kitchen before heading over to the living/dining room where you can tuck in over a bottle of wine.

Once everything has been cleared away, curl up on the sofa as the fire creates a romantic ambiance and the TV entertains you for the evening.

Withdraw upstairs to find a delightful bedroom, consisting of a king-size sleigh bed, as well as a bathroom where you can take your pick between a calming bubble bath or a brisk shower.

Enjoy your morning coffee out on the front patio area, ready for an exciting day in this bustling area.

Skipton town centre is right on your doorstep where you’ll find a vibrant selection of restaurants, tea rooms and coffee shops for eating out, and the traditional market sells fresh produce throughout the year including local cheeses, fish, meats and fresh vegetables, making this cottage an ideal spot to rest during your stay.

Well known as The Gateway to the Dales, you can explore the medieval castle, take canal boat trips, or relish in a day out at the swimming pool, golf course, excellent cycling routes, tennis courts and a myriad of walks including easy rambles and challenging fell walks within close proximity of the town.

Must-see attractions in the area include the Embsay & Bolton Abbey Steam Railway, or the Settle to Carlisle railway for a historic day out alongside breath-taking landscapes, or discover sparkling water features at Janet's Foss waterfall and natural pool, Stainforth Force, and the babbling River Ribble.

Explore the Yorkshire Dales National Park, visiting charming villages at Gargrave, Malham, Settle, and Kettlewell, all with their own unique charm and fun.

Town Cottage is an ideal Skipton cottage, whatever the time of year.

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!
