Skipton House description

Holiday home
Skipton House is a stone built Victorian building situated just a short walk from the centre of the market town of Skipton in the Yorkshire Dales. Boasting five bedrooms and two family bathrooms, this cottage can sleep up to ten people. Also contained within the cottage is a fitted kitchen, a dining room and a sitting room with a sofa bed and an electric fire. To the outside of the cottage is a front yard with seating, along with off road parking for two cars with roadside parking also available on a first come, first served basis. Ideally located close to the town centre, so that you can leave the car behind, yet just a short drive away from some of the most beautiful countryside in Yorkshire, Skipton House is sure to offer a holiday to remember.

Skipton is well placed for visiting all that the Dales have to offer. This market town boasts an ancient castle open to the public, a beautiful 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 Embsay Steam Railway, which has regular steam train excursions at the weekend and is only 1 mile away.

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?

This older typical Skipton house was clean and very roomy. It met our expectations in being close to the centre of Skipton. My adult son said it could have been Harry Potter's house.

We stayed here over Christmas 2014. Chosen via Sykes Website. At Christmas we expect to pay a premium price and at £1500 had certain expectations which were not met. This property was sold as having a ground floor bedroom, parking for 2 cars off road, well equipped kitchen. These were not the case. There was a sofa bed in the lounge, the parking was a small tight drive with enough space for one car, basic kitchen equipment eg no cafetière, mismatched glasses and crockery, no electric gadgets except a 2 slot toaster and kettle. This is what I call basic and adequate. No key for the back door, so if you did park at the back on the drive you had to walk around the whole block to get to the front....whilst not a huge problem...not ideal. The cleanliness of the property was not up to standard. Lipstick on glasses, Crumbs on the table on arrival, oven needed cleaning before use, mould around window frames from condensation, stains on bed linen (though I could smell they were clean and washed) . Low quality towels, sofa, was lumpy as if springs had gone, decor neeced a refresh. It had a bedsit/hostel feel not conducive to a cosy family Christmas. Very much disappointed in comparison to many other properties we've stayed in over Christmas Christmas tree with no lights, some cheap biscuits and wine. At £1500 for this week I could not see the value added at all. Sykes are offering mediation between us and the owner...I'm disappointed at this as I booked with Sykes not the owner.. If you are a group of outdoor enthusiasts after a base, this is showers, warm heating and a basic quality which won't matter if you dump your wet gear around.., for £500-600 I would be happy. We were with a family and a disabled person, and we expected much more. Feeling let down I'm afraid.

Sykes recommended this property to me as it is very big indeed...went with another ten people and we never once found it too tight a fit... Really close to the town and canals Parking was a bit weird but there was always space nearby Very nice owner who lived locally and brought extra towels when we needed them Skipton was lovely and the dales are within easy reach Would love to return in the summer

We absolutely loved our time at Low Field House, great location and it couldn't have been better! We received a warm welcome by the proprietors! Thanks you so much.

I stayed here as part of a group of ladies for my hen weekend. We were welcomed very warmly despite our obvious over-excitement! The house was exactly what we were expecting and more than sufficient for our needs. There was plenty of space for 8 of us and we had a brilliant time. Would definitely return!

Plenty of beds in different combinations in the different rooms. Basement games room. Great high speed Internet. Location very close to town center.

The location of the property was excellent and the owners were extremely helpful.

A roomy house with plenty of space for nine people. It is within easy walking distance of the town centre.
