This is a wonderfully sympathetically restored cottage with high quality fittings and furniture. It is centrally located between the town and the canal. We would highly recommend it as a base to discover the wonderful scenery and places in and around Skipton.
There are only two negatives, one that is easily solved and that it can only accommodate one car and the other can be parked nearby but its best to buy a weekly ticket.
The other negative which should be provided is Wi-fi whch given the wonderful review just given - is inexplicable, This was a real problem resulting in visits to coffee shops which in this modern age is totally unnecessary.
The access to the bedroom is difficult and would not be suitable for older people or someone with a disability. Anne's 81 year old mother really struggled with the stairs but that is just the design of the cottage (although a door assist of some sort would good as once open you could not get out the back door). However it was not something that is easily solved as its part of the design of this old cottage.

We spent a wonderful New Year in the lovely cottage. All of Skiptons restaurants and bars are on the door step. The cottage is equipped to the highest standard throughout but lacks a freezer compartment in the fridge.
