A relaxing break for two
Our children got us this break away as a Christmas present. We’ve been to Skipton quite a few times but never actually stayed there. The location of this property is right in the town centre. Parking space using a permit. The 1855 converted wash house is beautiful and surprisingly roomy. Everything you could need or want is there. The kitchen is great space for breakfast, lunch, snacks so main meal there’s plenty of eateries around the town. Great shower room and the big bed was very comfortable and warm. Perfect in every way!!
Little gem of a place!
Lovely return visit, everything as good as we remembered. Skipton &The 1855 Wash House never disappoint, I'm sure we'll be back again. Thank you Samantha 😊
Excellent location and lovely quirky property. Ideal for weekend stay.Our 2nd visit here.
Stunning property in the heart of Skipton. Quirky, warm and cosy. The little extras made all the difference. Couldn't have asked for anything better. Will definitely stay again. Highly recommended.
Totally blown away with this stunning little wash house. So many lovely and unusual things to see in there. The kitchen has everything you would need and everything is beautiful and clean. The location is the best in Skipton and being able to park right outside is fantastic. We loved every moment of our break away and will definitely stay again.
About Samantha Bollen
I have lived in Skipton for nearly 30 years and love the town and surrounding Dales. Having worked as a nurse and midwife I gave up the profession to raise our 3 boys William, Edward and George. In 2008 after a long planning struggle I opened the Victorian wash house which is situated in our back garden , as an antique shop. Having traded for 9 good years I decided it was time for a change. Recognising that people love to stay in the town I decided to convert the building into a holiday let.
Samantha Bollen purchased this Cottage in 2008
Why Samantha Bollen chose Skipton
The property is unique within the town centre as it is unusually large for a Victorian terrace wash house. It has had a varied social history since 1855 and exudes charm with its flagged floor and trussed roof. I have tried to enhance these features in a quirky traditional way while providing the modern home comforts
What makes this Cottage unique
Its greatest benefit is its location right in the town centre in a mixed friendly terrace. As we live in the main property, we are on hand should you require us.
