Region: From heather-clad moors and limestone scars, to market towns and the steady pace of country life - the sublime Dales await you! Where else in Britain is it as satisfying to sit and do nothing as it is to explore the numerous pursuits on offer?
Town: The market town of Skipton is situated on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales National Park. The town has a castle, an old parish church and a market occupying the cobbled setts each side of the high street. Enjoy a canal trip on a traditional barge or visit the Embsay Steam Railway. Also golf, swimming, squash, tennis and snooker are all available locally.
This was one of the best self catering cottages that I have stayed in. On three levels which made it unusual and to my mind more attractive. Less mobile folk might want to know that there is quite a steep gradient up from the town centre plus steps up to the cottage and the internal stairs.
Ideally located for walking, touring. Also Ideal for visiting without a car as bus-station, railway station and shops are all just a short walk away.
Very friendly and helpful welcome by the caretaker of the cottage.

Great location. Nicely equipped. Clean and comfortable. Split level, so up and down stairs a bit. Really nice to leave car behind and be able to walk out and about - town, canals, moors, woodland, etc. Skipton has some good places to eat, some good shops/market for a self-catering stay, and good public transport.

This flat is certainly conveniently placed in the centre of Skipton but in a a quiet corner. It was small but sufficient for two adults and had been recently refurbished to a very good standard.Access would certainly be a problem for many people. Parking is up a very narrow and steep alley;reversing out was extremely tricky. In addition, the outside stairs were alsoquite steep. We enjoyed our stay but this flat is not for the fainthearted!
