Poppy Cottages No. 1 & 2 -  Luxury Accommodation

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


Situated in the village of Carleton-in-Craven, on the outskirts 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. Set in a peaceful courtyard with private parking for both cottages, they are available for short breaks with longer stays available. 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.  

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 of walking in the Dales. We are very fortunate to have some lovely walks from the village, especially the walk into Skipton, following the public footpath route, across open countryside into town. Or for those who prefer a 'cleaner' walk, then follow the pavemented route, which runs along the roadside, from the village into Skipton. Both walks take around 30 minutes and are around 2 miles to the centre of town.  The cottages have all the necessary items for self-catering; hand and bath towels, complimentary toiletries, hairdryers, kitchen towels, cleaning and washing up liquids and to save you packing everything but the kitchen sink, we provide some other basic 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, beers, snacks and 'chocolate'; it is open 7 days a week until 10pm. The village pub - The Swan Inn, is just a 5-minute walk away too and serves evening meals most nights for those who don't want to venture too far. Yet with Skipton on your doorstep, you will be spoilt for choice with the many places you could visit. 

The cottages are cleaned and maintained by ourselves, to a very high standard, and we take great pride; always striving to provide, what we hope will be, a truly relaxing and enjoyable stay for our guests.  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.
