Description

Superbly located in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales National Park, with long-distance views from the rear towards Malham Cove, these three properties form part of a barn conversion dating back to the 1800s. Exposed stonework, beams and arches are a feature in their well furnished interiors. They are set on the owners’ working farm (keep dogs under control), upon which the owners run a farm shop – a selection of local produce and crafts can be purchased and make unique souvenir ideas. With their own separate garden areas complete with barbecue equipment, the cottages can be booked together to accommodate larger groups wishing to holiday together, yet retain their independence.

Surrounded by rolling countryside criss-crossed with the limestone walls for which this region is renowned, each forms an ideal base for outdoor enthusiasts, with stunning walks from the doorstep leading to Malham Cove, Gordale Scar, Malham Tarn and Janet’s Foss. The historic market town of Skipton is close at hand, boasting one of England’s best preserved Norman castles. Take a leisurely boat trip along the Leeds and Liverpool Canal, step back in time with a narrated ghost walk around the town’s backwaters, or hunt for a bargain at the bustling street market – its stalls laden with local produce. An alternative selection of shops and tearooms can be found in Settle (6 miles), an ideal base for embarking on a journey aboard the famous Settle to Carlisle Railway. Set on the banks of the River Wharfe, the ruined priory of Bolton Abbey offers a picturesque setting for picnics and strolls along the river bank, and serves as a good starting point for more challenging hikes through forest and heath. Plenty of good restaurants and country pubs serving real ales and fine local fayre in the vicinity. Shop 10 yards.

About the local area

Skipton is a bustling market town situated in a unique location, the Aire Gap, which enables visitors to explore some of northern England's outstanding beauty spots. The Yorkshire Dales lie to the north and give Skipton its name of 'The Gateway to the Dales'. The rolling green pastures of the Ribble Valley lie to the west and lead to the Lake District.

Millstone grit moorland stretches to the south and east of Skipton, leading to Bronte Country and good road, rail and air links from the cities of Bradford and Leeds. There's an open air market four days a week, traditional shops and a vibrant, modern commercial centre.

There's a rich history in Skipton. The 900-year old castle has dominated the town since the Norman Conquest. Although part of Yorkshire, Skipton supported the Lancastrians during the War of the Roses. and during the Civil War, was the only Royalist stronghold in northern England.

This is one of the most scenic stretches of the Leeds - Liverpool Canal, which passes through the town centre and around Skipton Castle like a moat. You can take a half hour trip around the castle or day trips to outlying areas.

The canal takes you to Gargrave village, close to the source of the River Aire and the spectacular limestone gorges at Malham. Here you can enjoy dozens of walks around the remote moorland, stunning glical formations such as Malham Tarn and even spot the Peregrine Falcons nesting high on the cliffs.

The village of Embsay, just outside Skipton, hosts a terminal of the Embsay and Bolton Abbey Steam Railway. The train stops just outside Bolton Abbey, a lovely place for picnic.
