“Wonderful eggs!”
Reviewed 10 October 2013

Here again on my own this time visiting friends in the village. The room was immaculate with everything one could possibly require and the breakfasts were delicious with sausages from Steve and Sally's own pigs and the most yellow yolked eggs I have ever eaten. It's a wonderful base from which to explore the beautiful area which surrounds it and Carleton is a fascinating village.

I stayed for 3 nights and it is by far the best B&B I have ever visited. Sally and Steve are excellent hosts, chefs, owners and local area advisors!
The room was very clean, lovely refreshments and toiletries, lots of space and very comfortable.
I look forward to returning.

Absolutely perfect in all respect, nothing has been left out (food, accommodation, superb hosts etc) to make this one of the best accommodation we have stayed in.
No point in repeating what other people - just book a place!

Room Tip: Only three rooms but all must be of same standard

Would have to rate Poppy Cottage as one of, if not, the best B&B stay we had on a recent 6-week trip to the UK. Steve and Sally's attention to detail was top drawer. The room was clean and comfortable and lacked nothing. Our hosts were more than forthcoming with things to see and do in and around Skipton. Charming people, great location and worth every penny.

Room Tip: The Primrose Room had a delightful outlook over the hills behind Carleton.

Sally and Steve have created the perfect haven a mile or so out of Skipton giving access to the Dales.We have just returned from a four day break which was a delight. They even managed to arrange sunny weather!
The bedroom was bright and overlooked a pleasant garden set against a backdrop of hills,which set the scene for a relaxing stay. The breakfasts were wonderful, and there was a good amount of options to suit most tastes. What stands out though is this couples friendly and bright relationship with their guests.
This was a return visit and it will certainly not be the last.

Room Tip: Sunflower would be my choice

This is simply the best b&b we have ever stayed in. Great attention to detail and thought has been given to make a stay as enjoyable as possible. It is really designed around the guests' needs and Sally and Steve are perfect hosts. I should also add that the breakfasts are fabulous and the freshly cooked pancakes were extra special
