  • "A great stay at this lovely property."

    A rural setting but so close to Skipton and lots to do in the area. Modern and spacious, everyone loved it and we’ve already booked again for next year. Thanks so much!!

  • "A beautiful property, spotlessly clean and well presented."

    Plenty of room for a large family get together with a lovely big dining table and a bathroom each. Great garden and hot tub. Near enough to Skipton to get a couple of takeaway meals and visit the supermarket. Convenient for children’s playground and walks in the Dales.

    Thank you very much for your feedback, glad you liked our property and found it clean and well presented. Glad you found everything you needed close by and convenient. Thanks for taking the time to write us a review. Property Owner

  • "This cottage is lovely and comfortable as described."

    There was an issue with the water quality caused by domestic water being supplied from natural source which was quite discoloured at times after rain storms. We bought bottled water for drinking. We were surprised to find a lack of what could be regarded as kitchen essentials ie foil, cling film, cooking oil etc. there was not enough dishwasher tabs, bin liners etc supplied and no information at all about recycling. The toilet at the top of the stairs often runs with water after flushing and needs attention. Although there are lovely wine glasses, it could really do with beer glasses and small spirit glasses too.

    Thank you very much for your feedback, all feedback is greatly appreciated, we will take on board your comments and add some details to the hand book about the recycling in our area. We will also get the toilet looked at. Many thanks for taking the time to give us your feedback. Property Owner

    The Croft is beautiful and spacious and the location is great. We did not want to leave at the end of our stay. We had all we needed in the property, the beds were very comfortable and everyone from the young to the old were catered for. Thank you for a truly wonderful stay.

    It would have been helpful to have the instructions for the heating but it didn’t spoil our stay!

  • "Great place - high standard of accommodation."

    Responsive hosts and quiet and tranquil setting. Only issue is Wi-Fi signal to main TV in snug is intermittent. Other than that - great place well laid out with ample accommodation for large groups.

    Thank you for your comment, it is much appreciated when people take time to write a review. The fibre lines in the village have now been upgraded so we are able to upgrade our broadband, which we have now done, so hopefully this won't be an issue in future. We will monitor for further feedback. Many thanks again for the review. Property Owner

  • "We loved the (high tech) house and enjoyed our(rainy) time there."

    It was very spacious, warm, comfortable and well equipped although we could have done with more crockery to make dishwasher use more efficient. We slowly learned how to use all the electronics (heating, lighting, TV) but more instructions would have been useful. The hamlet was a delight and there was lots to do in the area for those over 70, those under 8, and those in between.

    Thank you for your feedback, we appreciate all comments, I am so sorry about the Yorkshire weather! We are going to update the instructions in the hand booked, to make it easier for guests in the future. Property Owner

  • "Our family enjoyed their week at this holiday home."

    The house on the whole was spacious and comfortable with lots of natural light and quality appliances.The area is beautiful and Skipton is a very pleasant town to visit with regular outdoor markets and plenty of places to eat. The one problem we experienced was with the large TV in the snug, which had no, or at best, intermitant internet access.

    Thank you for your feedback, we are glad you enjoyed your week in Skipton. We take all comments on board and will look into the internet situation. Property Owner

  • "It was a fantastic property."

    Very high standard. Beautiful garden and the house is superb. We did find it a bit odd that the hottub has a CCTV camera right next to it. Not enough small glasses, and no plastic glasses/cups for kids.

    Thank you for the feedback, we are glad you liked the property. The CCTV is purely for security of the property. We have now added to the crockery collect. Property Owner

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!
