We enjoyed a wonderful stay at Craven House which was an ideal venue to celebrate our Golden wedding anniversary.The property is ideally situated near the centre of Skipton and all it's amenities and is a property large enough to accommodate families and groups. The children loved the downstairs 'den' and there was plenty of space for them to play without getting under everyone's feet. The house has a warm and welcoming feel to it and we felt it represented good value for money and would certainly book it again if we were looking for a large property to rent.

Good Location, but...

This is a good house in a great location, everything on the doorstep for Skipton, and Skipton is a great base. Only problem really was that one of the bedrooms didn't have a wardrobe so guests had to live of coathangers on the back of the door for a week, not on really!
Comfortable, well-equipped and spacious

A group of family and friends with 3 small children, we found Craven House to have everything we needed. Plenty of bathrooms and ensuites, large well-equipped kitchen with aga. The house was well heated. In a good position for most things - Tesco literally round the corner, and the centre of Skipton an easy walk. Lovely park for the children within walking distance. Excellent pub for meals on the roundabout on the Keighly Road.
Downside of going in March was nearby children's farms weren't open till april. Railway also restricted times then.

great house, big and clean, a short walk from the middle of skipton, and round the corner from a large supermarket.
fronts onto a busy road, which would probably make parking outside difficult at busy times, but we went in march, and had no problems. Plenty of pubs and places to eat within a short walk, with the villages and walks of the yorkshire dales a short drive out of skipton.
A great time was had by all!

This house is simply perfect for an extended family, spending time together. the house and surrounding area meets all needs for all ages, young children, teenagers, parents and grandparents alike.
we loved the comfotable warm spaciousness and cooking together in the large kitchen, one on the aga, one on the gas cooker made for great family togetherness.
We all loved every minut and can't wait to go again.
Great place to stay

This cottage is great for large groups and we would highly recommend it. It is superbly equipped, very cosy, immaculately clean and a great base from which to explore the surrounding area.
On the down side it is on a busy road and parking can be a bit difficult but this in no way detracted from the experience.
We are already talking about a return visit in a couple of years.
Great family experience
