We recently had 3 nights at Poppy Cottage with our 2 small children (3 and 9 months). Steve and Sally were great hosts, always accommodating and nothing seemed to be too much trouble. The breakfasts were fantastic. You get to choose what you want the night before, but if you want to make a change in the morning that does not seem tro cause any problems.
For the kids being at a B&B with animals (chickens, 2 lambs and a very friendly small dog) there was a welcome distraction in the back yard. There is some play equipment as well, including and enclosed trampoline, and there is a park with equipement only a few minutes walk away next to the village church.
Skip ton is a pleasant 35 minute walk away and there is one pub in the village that does food toasted the end of the week/weekend. We didn't eat there as we had a car and there are quite few dining options in Skipton and the surrounding countryside. Meals can be organized at Poppy's with advanced notice.
The village itself, Carleton, Is quiet and picturesque, and if you are a walker there seems to be many public footpaths to explore. Having a car is helpful, but there is a regular bus service to and from Skipton if you would rather not walk.
We had a great time at Poppy Cottage and would definitely recommend it to anyone.
