Ermysteds Cottage Cottage description

Holiday home
Ermysteds Cottage is a stone built, terraced cottage in the popular market town of Skipton on the southern edge of the Yorkshire Dales National Park. With one kingsize double bedroom and a bathroom, this cottage is ideal for a romantic break for two. The rest of the cottage contains a fitted kitchen and a sitting room with a dining area. Outside the cottage is a rear garden with a patio, outdoor furniture and a barbecue, secure bike storage and off road parking on a first come first served basis. Being so centrally located, Ermysteds Cottage is an ideal base for leaving the car behind and exploring all of Skipton and beyond.

Known as "The Gateway to the Dales", Skipton is well placed for visiting all that the Dales has to offer, whilst York, the Lake District and the West Coast are also within easy motoring distance. This lovely market town has much to interest the visitor, boasting an ancient castle open to the public, a beautiful old parish church and a colourful 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?

Lovely, cosy little cottage in a very convenient location. Information about the various gadgets/heating was very helpful, and there were lots of useful tips - both from the owners and from previous guests in the feedback book - on things to do in the area. The bed was so incredibly comfortable that it was a task getting up every morning.

We wanted a property within walking distance to the town and this is exactly what we got! it was few minutes to shops, pubs and restaurants. It was cosy - and of course had a VERY large and comfortable bed! It was quiet - a haven to relax in for a few days.

The cottage was very well situated with easy access to the town.
Mr Strangwood

Excellent location of the cottage in Skipton. Only 5 min walk from town centre. The cottage was cosy and had everything needed for our weeks stay. Skipton is a lovely town with plenty to do within the town itself. The surrounding location is beautiful with lots of nice places to visit and walks to do.

It was lovely and peaceful yet very Central to Skipton.

We liked the location of the cottage, we walked or caught public transport for the whole week and never used the car.
Mr Draper
April 2014
Proximity to the Dales and the walks around Skipton were most enjoyable, lovely little town. Huge bed in the bedroom, good shower, cosy lounge, ample cooking facilities.
October 2013
Excellent location for the cottage as it is near to the town centre, and within short walking distance to local restaurants, shops and pubs. Also, access to other areas around the Dales within easy driving distance. Cottage well maintained, cosy, clean and very comfortable.

Very convenient, clean and warm. Will definitely recommend to all friends.

The cottage was one of the best my husband and I have stayed in. Skipton was a surprise and a delight to our introduction to the Dales. The cottage was faultless, super holiday!
Mrs Fisher

The cottage was very cosy and inviting. The property was ideally situated for the town centre and all the lovely countryside
Miss Fewkes
March 2013
The cottage was in an ideal location to go into town for the pubs at night and central for all our walks during the day. An extremely clean cottage to come back too and a huge comfy bed was a bonus.
Mrs Ellebye
September 2012
I liked the fact it is so central, a maximum 10 minutes walk to the station or the supermarket and less to the centre of Skipton. I also liked to be able to hang out washing and to sit out in the little garden at the back. It is a quiet little cottage and I enjoyed staying there.
Mr Pinner
February 2013
Great location, short walk from the station and the supermarket. Spacious bedroom and bathroom were also fantastic. Very well kept and clean. We'd definitely stay there again.
Mr Van Buren

The surroundings of Skipton, the quietness of the location, the central location relative to shops, restaurants, public transport.
Mrs Stubbings

We liked being close to town and being able to walk. It was well maintained and very clean.
Mrs Jones
January 2012
The cottage was ideally situated for walking both into town and to the station which meant not having to use the car. As a professional driver this was a very welcome change!

Mrs Wise

This was a really lovely little cottage, beautifully and tastefully renovated and ideal for exploring Skipton and the surrounding area.
Mrs Norris
May 2011
Excellent location for the cottage, close to the town centre amenities. Access to outside space was an added bonus - we didn't have time to use the BBQ but was great to have that available if so desired. Highly recommend the cottage.
Mrs Peasley

A great place with everything we needed for a relaxing holiday.
Mrs Tyson

Cosy cottage. Good location. Good transport links. Owners called to check everything was ok.
Mrs Turner
September 2010
Excellent cottage, well furnished and within walking distance of all the facilities of Skipton.
December 2012
The cottage is well placed, well equipped, and everything is explained in a brochure ( heating etc ). It was spotlessly clean on arrival, and the owner called after a day to see if we needed anything. A welcome pack of milk, tea and Yorkshire biscuits would have been a nice touch, but we can only make the suggestion. The bed is super comfortable. Skipton is a great little town and a brilliant base from which to explore the dales. We had a lovely week, with some glorious days, but the wet ones were good too, with visits to Saltaire and Harrogate and we would return happily on another occasion.
August 2013
Really enjoyed our week at the cottage. It was spotlessly clean and comfortable. The bedroom was enormous and all facilities necessary for a short holiday. Would not hesitate to stay there again if I have a need.

De ligging van de cottage is op loopafstand van het centrum van Skipton. Voor wandelaars een uitstekende lokatie, er zijn veel wandelingen uitgezet in de buurt van Skipton. De cottage zelf is goed ingericht, de keuken is prima, badkamer eveneens, alsmede de slaapkamer. Veel ruimte. De woonkamer is weinig sfeervol en beetje klein. Maar dat vinden wij niet doorslaggevend. De achtertuin op het noorden is slechts een kleine binnenplaats zonder zon. Jammer dat er geen wifi is en vaak geen telefoonverbinding. Al met al is het een prima plek voor een goede vakantie.

We have just returned from a weeks stay in this lovely one bedroom cottage. It was spotlessly clean just the sort of place you want to return to after a day out walking. Very handy for train station and town centre and shops. We did not have a car but this was not a problem public transport very easy to get to other places for walking.. Our first time in Skipton but will be back and would stay in this again Large bed best sleep I have had for ages
August 2011
Booked here for 7 days but returned home after only 2 nights. Reason-stairs were so steep that we had to use both handrails to literally pull ourselves upstairs to the bedroom & bathroom & we consider ourselves fit senior golfers!. No chance of getting suitcase upstairs. Check out photo. TV was out of order & no response from either of the 2 contact numbers provided to get it serviced. No refund offer.
October 2012
The cottage was in a good location only a ten minute walk to the town centre. The owner was very friendly and helpful answering any questions we had. The cottage was very cosy and had everything we needed. Skipton is a nice little town with plenty of small shops to explore. Harrogate is nearby. Grassington village is a lovely little village to visit. There is a vegetarian cafe/restaurant there called The Retreat which serves lovely snacks and meals at reasonable prices. Worth a visit if you are vegetarian. Would highly recommend it.
