Booking easy and Abbie was quick to respond to emails. Barnoldswick is small and friendly, with a good selection of independent shops. This made a nice change from the generic shops you find in most places these days. We were lucky to have glorious weather and the surrounding scenery is stunning. Had a day in York, visited Hebden Bridge, Haworth and the National Trust property Riddlesdon Hall in Keighley. Nearby, Skipton is pretty and has a great farm shop on the outskirts. We packed a lot into three days and there's so much more to see, but that's for another time.
