Welcome to Poppy Cottages, Carleton-in-Craven, Skipton 

Poppy Cottage Guest House 

Following on from Poppy Cottage Guest House,  which we ran for 7 years from 2009 and gained Tripadvisors 'Certificate of Excellence' for the last 5 years running,  Poppy Cottages are two individual, one-bedroomed self-contained cottages (currently undergoing re-furbishment throughout the winter months) and will have fabulous wood-burning stoves,  beautiful and stylish kitchens & bathrooms with stunning private gardens and with the fabulous hot-tub to Poppy No. 1,  all set in a lovely village setting on the outskirts of Skipton.   

Our cottages, Poppy No. 1 and Poppy No. 2,  will be available for short-breaks of 3 nights with arrival days of Monday, Thursday and Fridays. Full week stays are also available with discounts given when staying for longer periods.  We also appreciate just how important breakfast is in the morning so our cottages will be kitted out with some essential breakfast items such as a selection of cereals , milk, tea, coffee, sugar etc.  We can also arrange for a 'breakfast welcome pack' to left in your fridge for your arrival, see our food page for more details.

Bookings are now being taken for 2017 with no deposit required.  

Poppy Cottages are located in the quiet little village of Carleton-in-Craven on the outskirts of Skipton and are set in their own courtyard, having private parking and stunning views of the hills and countryside. Attached to our home at Ivy Cottage Farm, a traditional Yorkshire Dales Longhouse, which is believed to date back to the late 16th Century.  the cottages were once the original barn to the farmhouse and have lovely thick stone walls and wood burning stoves.  The village of Carleton itself is only 2 miles from Skipton and has its own village shop where you can get all your basic essentials, post office and local village pub within walking distance which serve evening meals.  It is within comfortable, level walking distance of the town, following either the public footpath route across open countryside or by taking the pavemented route into town and has a regular bus service Monday to Fridays.  

As we live next door at Ivy Cottage Farm we will be able to offer flexibility with bookings and the cottages will be available for mini-breaks of 3 or 4 nights.  With our experience of running a successful B&B, we aim to offer the same level of comfort and service and are keen to provide guests with many added extras and essentials which will make your stay not only comfortable but hopefully memorable.

For all these reasons and many more  we believe Poppy Cottages are the ideal base for those who want to escape the hustle & bustle of the town yet have all the amenities and attractions close to hand along with the beautiful Yorkshire Dales National Park on your doorstep.
