Gateway to the Yorkshire Dales, Skipton is popular year-round, thanks to its 900-year-old castle, romantic priory ruins, weekly market and cobbled High Street. A thriving centre for trade since Saxon times, the town’s economy was further boosted in the 1700s by the opening of the Leeds to Liverpool Canal, Britain’s longest inland waterway. Today the waterfront is a prime spot for people-watching, while Skipton’s characterful side-streets are home to shops galore and a great choice of pubs, restaurants, tea rooms and takeaways – and it’s all just a short stroll from your front door.

The traditional brick frontage gives no hint of the modern, open-plan living space that’s so well-arranged within – leave coats and shoes in the entrance hall and step straight into a lounge/kitchen/diner that’s clean, comfortable and welcoming. In the kitchen area you’ll find all the essentials for your home away from home, while a contemporary dining suite allows for companionable mealtimes or maybe just somewhere to sit and chat while the cook’s at work. A clutter-free layout, comfortable seating and a TV set the scene for relaxing evenings in the lounge, while there’s a surprise in store for those with a competitive edge: follow a steep flight of stairs down from the ground floor to a games room that comes complete with pool table and bar-style seating. On the first floor there are two bedrooms: one with a TV and a stylish wrought-iron double bed which matches its feature fireplace, the other with two single beds, and finally a spacious bathroom.

There’s one more hidden gem to enjoy here, a courtyard area at the rear, furnished with table and chairs.

Craven cottage was perfect for our holiday in Skipton, The cottage was very well located for Skipton town centre, it was well equipped, immaculately clean and the beds were very comfortable, we have family nearby and plan to visit Skipton 3/4 times per year, we will be booking this property again if it is available when we visit.
