Town: The lovely town of Skipton is often referred to as "The Gateway to the Dales". Close by is the cathedral city of York, the Lake District and the West Coast, making this an incredibly central location. Skipton itself is an old market town and still continues the tradition to this day. It also boasts an ancient castle open to the public and a beautiful old parish church. With regular steam train excursions running at the weekend, visitors can enjoy a trip on the Embsay Steam Railway â just one mile away - or experience a canal trip on a traditional barge. There are also facilities for golf, swimming, squash, tennis and snooker.

Good instructions on access. Enough of everything left by previous visitors to get us started, but shops and two big supermarkets within 10 minute walk. Warm, nice "false" fire in the lounge. wi-fi easily connected. Kitchen had all the utensils needed. Shower good.
The only slight negative is that parking could be difficult - these houses were designed when not everyone had a motor - and on several occasions we could not park near the house, but had to go down the road (about 40 metres).
Do not miss the aagrah restaurant, The Pie Shop, Bizzie Lizzie's - savour the chips in beef dripping.
perfect position for the Dales

The cottage was well equiped, warm and comfortable, good decor, and well furnished, a perfect place to stay for Skipton and the Dales, I would have no problem booking this cottage again.
