Poppy Cottages No. 1 & 2           

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


Situated in the quiet 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.  Both cottages are available for short breaks of 3 or 4 nights with longer stays available making the cottages an ideal retreat for those who want to escape to the country for a few days of rest and relaxation.  The cottages have stunning views across the Aire valley towards Skipton with the hills and moors that surround the town and village.  The historic market town of Skipton is very accessible from the village and is only a 5-minute drive away. For those who enjoy a good walk, it is a very easy and level stride into town following the public footpath route across the fields or the pavemented route along the roadside into Skipton.

After undergoing a full refurbishment throughout the winter months of 2016/17,  Poppy Cottage No. 1 & Poppy Cottage No. 2 have fresh, stylish interiors, converted from the original barn attached to Ivy Cottage Farm.  The farmhouse with barn attached is a traditional Yorkshire Dales longhouse and is believed to date 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 roam around to the rear.  The cottages are quite separate from the farmhouse and have parking for up to four cars in the private forecourt.  

Poppy Cottage No. 1 has the fabulous outdoor hot-tub which is set in its own private south facing gardens.  This cottage is an ideal couple retreat, having just one large bedroom, open plan living, dining, kitchen area and a luxurious bathroom with jacuzzi bath,  to help you soak away the stresses of daily life.  Experience a rejuvenating break in this cosy cottage with wood burning stove.

Poppy Cottage No. 2 is slightly larger with 2 bedrooms and can sleep 2 to 3 people comfortably in the bedrooms.  Extra sleeping is available with the use of the sofa bed in the lounge, for groups of up to 5 people.  Poppy Cottage No. 2 has space for you to spread out, with a dining kitchen, ground floor shower room, first-floor luxurious bathroom with large bath and separate shower cubicle. The cottage is ideal for small groups but has hidden extras to accommodate the family. 

The cottages have all the necessary items for self-catering, along with towels, complimentary toiletries, some basic breakfast essentials of cereals, tea, coffee, sugar and some fresh milk left in your fridge, for that all important cuppa on arrival.  Our village shop will be able to supply you with all your necessities and is open 7 days a week and our friendly village pub which serve evening meals is just a 5-minute walk away.

For all these reasons and much more we believe Poppy Cottages are the ideal base for those who want to escape the hustle and bustle of the town yet have all the amenities and attractions close at hand, with the beautiful Yorkshire Dales National Park just a short drive away.
