We stayed for 3 nights at Poppy Cottage last week at the beginning of our holiday in Yorkshire and The Lakes. What a brilliant start! A lovely old farmhouse - a very comfortable room, snug sitting room for our use, even a sunny decking area in the lovely garden. Everywhere was spotlessly clean and the breakfasts Steve and Sally serve were wonderful! They were so welcoming and helpful with recommendations etc. We thought it was excellently located, walking distance across the fields from Skipton, easy access to all the Yorkshire Dales attractions and a reasonable pub up the road. One night we just bought take-away homemade pizza from the pub and were able to eat it back at the guesthouse out in the garden - perfect!
We would definitely recommend this guest house to friends and would love to return ourselves.
