Poppy Cottages No. 1 & 2 - Holiday Cottages 

Carleton-in-Craven, Skipton - The Gateway to the Yorkshire Dales. 


Set in the small village of Carleton-in-Craven, just 2 miles from the bustling market town of Skipton, the Gateway to the Yorkshire Dales, Poppy Cottage No. 1 and Poppy Cottage No. 2 are two individual 'luxury' self-catering holiday cottages; available for short breaks of 3 or 4 nights - weekend or midweek, with longer stays available and discounts given.  Both cottages have stunning views, stretching across the Aire Valley into Skipton with the hills and moors that surround the town, providing a colourful and scenic backdrop.

Poppy Cottage No. 1, with the fabulous hot tub, and Poppy Cottage No. 2, a slightly larger cottage appealing to groups and families, are ideally based for those who want to escape the hustle and bustle of the town, yet have all the amenities the market town of Skipton has to offer, very close to hand. With good connections and easy access into the Yorkshire Dales National Park.  

After undergoing a full makeover and refurbishment throughout the winter months of 2016/17,  Poppy Cottage No. 1 & Poppy Cottage No. 2 have been converted from, what was, the original barn to Ivy Cottage Farm. The building is a traditional 'Yorkshire Dales Longhouse' - a farmhouse with barn attached and dates back to the late 18th century.  Sadly no longer a working farm, Ivy Cottage Farm is home to ourselves, Steve and Sally Hall, our two boys and our chickens who you will see wandering around at the rear.  The cottages are attached to the original farmhouse but are quite separate and we are always on hand to help out with any queries/recommendations you may have during your stay. 

There is parking for up to four cars in the forecourt, a seating area with plenty of space to sit and kick off those muddy boots; especially important after a full day in the Dales. We are very fortunate to have some lovely walks from the village; with the walk into Skipton, which takes around 30 minutes, following the public footpath across the fields and crossing the River Aire into town. Or for those who prefer a 'cleaner' walk, then follow the pavemented route into town.  

The cottages are cleaned and maintained by ourselves to a very high standard and to save you packing everything but the kitchen sink we provide: hand and bath towels, complimentary toiletries, hairdryers, kitchen hand and tea towels, cleaning and washing up liquids. We also ensure that your wood burning stove is laid and ready to be lit on your arrival. We provide some other basic food essentials, such as a selection of breakfast cereals, cornflakes, branflakes, granola; 'Yorkshire Tea' bags, freeze-dried coffee sticks, white sugar sticks, condiments; we even leave a jug of fresh semi-skimmed milk in your fridge, for that all important cuppa on arrival. 

Our village shop, which is just a 5-minute walk away, supplies fresh local produce along with newspapers, wines and beers and is open 7 days a week until 10pm. The village pub - The Swan Inn, is just a 5-minute walk away and serves evening meals most nights for those who want a night off cooking and don't want to venture too far; although with Skipton on your doorstep, you will be spoilt for choice with the many fine eating places the town has to offer. 

Please give me a call me (Sally) on 01756 792874 if you would like any more information or would like to make a booking over the phone, rather than online, I'm always happy to help.
