Great location for The Dales, North Yorkshire Moors, York, Castle Howard etc etc. The accommodation was first class and couldn't of been any better. Would highly recommend and will be first choice if we are ever heading to Yorkshire again.

A short walk from the centre of Skipton with all of its attractions and an easy drive to anywhere in the Yorkshire Dales. We'll be back (I hope)
