Wynnville Cottage description

Holiday home
Wynnville is a detached bungalow in a peaceful corner of the village of Embsay close to the market town of Skipton in the Yorkshire Dales. With one double and one single bedroom as well as a family shower room, this cottage is ideal for three people. The rest of the accommodation is made up of a fitted kitchen and a sitting room with a dining area and a gas fire, whilst in the garage is a utility area. Outside this cottage is off road parking for two cars, lockable bike storage in the garage and a lawned garden with patio area and furniture. Being located on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales National Park, Wynnville is the ideal cottage for visitors looking to explore the region for the first time.

The Dales village of Embsay is of ancient origin, with a stone circle dating back to the Bronze Age and having been the site of a monastic settlement in the 12th Century. Today it is popular with walkers and steam railway enthusiasts who come to enjoy the beautiful surrounding countryside and the Embsay and Bolton Abbey Steam Railway, with its award-winning authentic station buildings and steam trains. The Old Mill in the village centre boasts a needlecraft centre and coffee shop, whilst all the amenities and attractions of the lively bustling market town of Skipton are close at hand. Nearby are lots of popular places to visit, including Bolton Abbey, Kilnsey and Grassington making this an ideal location for a wonderful Dales holiday.

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?

The cottage was a home from home. Very clean and comfortable. In a good location for visiting Skipton and area. The owners of the cottage were very friendly and accommodating. We all enjoyed our stay

After a long journey we arrived to a warm, cosy cottage. An airy light and very clean cottage with room to move around and best of all an excellent place to park the car!

This was not our first visit to the property and we hope to visit again in the future. There is nothing to not like, the standard of the property and garden is excellent and the location perfect. The owners are very friendly and welcoming. A perfect holiday for us, even if the weather is not too good it doesn't spoil our time there.

Wynnville had plenty of storage and we felt at home straight away. This is a good base if you are exploring the Dales and local towns / attractions. The food in both pubs in the village was good, although the choice for vegetarians was limited. Booking on a Friday night is recommended!

Excellent facilities for my 85 year old father with mobility difficulties. Easy access to walk in shower with grab rails throughout the property.
Mr Sawtell

The cottage was very suitable to our needs and was a real home away from home. The owners were very welcoming and helpful and a pleasure to meet. The close location to Skipton helped with our sightseeing and we would certainly like to return at some time in the future

Mrs Martin
October 2010
This is a lovely bungalow, a real 'home from home' and very warm and comfortable. It is well positioned for touring the Yorkshire Dales but also there are many good walks locally.

The cottage was very well equipped and thoughtfully laid out. We were travelling with my sister who has limited mobility and the bath room with shower accommodated her needs very well. The cottage has a warm and welcoming feel and is a great place to relax. Cliff and Rosamund are great hosts and nothing is too much trouble. Embsay is lovely little village with two pubs- make sure you to the one at the top of the hill- and not far from Skipton. We'd go back tomorrow and next time we're in the UK we will certainly stay again.
Mr Mrs Smith

This is a very comfortable and well equipped property to return to after a day in the Dales. We had a warm welcome from the owners who are just next door and very helpful. This is a good location to get to many attractions, walks and towns in this part of Yorkshire.
November 2013
Nice cottage well positioned for Skipton and dales. Well heated necessary for time of year of our visit. we selected primarily however for availability of wifi. as well as location. We required internet access for TV players etc and for house hunting. wifi was totally inadequate. Only available in one corner of living room and corner of cold garage and extremely slow then. Our mobile reception was also non existent. Could not recommend to anyone wanting wifi, Should not be advertised as having wifi unless dramatically improved
December 2013
My husband and I often go away around November time and have stayed in several cottages in this area for a number of years. We chose this property for location and the fact it had wifi, according to the advertising. When we arrived the bungalow was clean in most areas, when the owners arrived they didn't show us how to work appliances etc. which in the past owners have gone out of their way to do so, and as for the wifi we could only receive this if we were stood in the garage in the corner, so feel that this should not be advertised with wifi if this is the only place in the property you can receive it, it's misleading. Also we found if you are tall and have long legs the suite is not very comfortable and the television is a postage stamp in the corner. These two points are not particularly a deal breaker if you are there in summer because most of your time you're not in and tv is not watched, but in winter you're not able to sit outside or go for walks after tea. I think in future we will be trying somewhere else, unless the facilities are improved.
September 2012
This is a gorgeous Bungalow, well maintained, in a nice situation.
May 2013

Area was fab for walking and even then scenery from the table was sublime.Having an early breakfast with that few was the best. Great area for siteseeing didnt realise how much there was tp explore in that area so big surprise.
May 2011
The setting was perfect - in the country but near the lovely market town of Skipton, which had all you would need. Also the surrounding scenery was spectacular. We have lived in the area so it was lovely to be back. The owners, living next door, were grand people - nice and friendly. The bungalow was very clean, well-equipped and comfortable. Just one thing - not a big problem but if no-one mentions it, the owners will never know - the bed was a bit lumpy! The only other thing was the cleaners were too prompt - we said it was OK, but I can imagine some people might not like it. Apart from that it was brilliant.
