“We will be back!!”
Reviewed 19 November 2012 for a stay in November 2012

This lovely idyllic cottage was perfect for us in the town of Skipton. The 3 bedroomed cottage was very well maintained and was exceptional fully equipped. We stayed for a weekend in November and the weather was fabulous. We arrived on the Friday night to be greeted by Jennette who explained where everything was and we even phoned for directions as there was a diversion on the road which was no trouble for her.

We had a brilliant first evening playing the games that were in the cupboard and sitting in front of roaring log fire. It was so quiet we all over slept on the Saturday but who needs to pop to the shops for breakfast when you can pop to the small out house and buy via the honesty box fresh eggs that had been laid that morning!!

The cottage was immaculately clean, very well presented and full of local information of things to do, places to see and eat if you didn't fancy cooking in the well equipped kitchen. There was even a phone number for a baby sitting service. We enjoyed a trip on a barge down the canal and also trip to Bolton Abbey during our stay. Both we found out about from the information in the cottage.

There is a couple of large supermarkets a 5 minute drive away and the center of Skipton which includes a market and the Castle. The views are amazing we watched the barges up and down the canal.

All in all we couldn't have asked for a more warm welcome and a beautiful clean very well equipped cottage. We are booking next year in the spring so that we can see the new born lambs and enjoy the BBQ that is outside.

“Well equiped canalside accommodation with scenic views and easy access to Skipton”

6 of us, 3 couples stayed at Niffany Barn. The newly decorated and furnished property was well equipped with lovely views of the local countryside from the upstairs living room and kitchen. It was fascinatng watching boats sailing past and lambs playing in the adjacent fields. Being on an active farm adds character and interest to the stay .
Walks along the canal towpath allow attractive views of the countryside. Skipton with its shops and markets is a few minutes drive or a brisk 20 minute walk along the towpath. We were lucky to be there when the canal festval was on - great fun. There are lots of places to eat in Skipton and plenty of places to visit in the area.
