Poppy Cottages No. 1 & 2                  

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


Situated in a quiet village 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, following on from Poppy Cottage Guest House which we ran for 7 years and gained over 215 excellences from Tripadvisor.  

Both cottages are available for short breaks of 3 or 4 nights with discounts given when booking a 7 or 7+ night stay. The cottages have beautiful views of the countryside, stretching across the Aire valley into Skipton with the hills and moors surrounding the town.  Skipton is very accessible from the village and is just a 5-minute drive away. Or for those who enjoy a walk, it is a very easy level walk in town following the public footpath across the fields or by taking the pavemented route along the road.  

Poppy Cottage No. 1 is ideal for 2 people, having one bedroom, open planned living, dining, kitchen area and the fabulous outdoor hot-tub,  to help you soak away the stresses of daily life. The cottage also has a luxurious bathroom with jacuzzi bath with shower over. Experience a rejuvenating break in this lovely village on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales.

Poppy Cottage No. 2 is slightly larger with 2 bedrooms and can sleep 2 to 3 people comfortably in the bedrooms with extra sleeping available for groups of up to 5 people with the use of the pull out sofa bed in the lounge.  Poppy Cottage No. 2 has the space to spread out, with a dining kitchen, ground floor shower room, first-floor luxurious bathroom with large bath and separate shower cubicle. Ideal as couples getaway yet with hidden extras to accommodate the family. The cottages adjoin each other and can be booked together for larger groups of up to 7.

The cottages have been converted over the years from the original barn to Ivy Cottage Farm, which is a traditional Yorkshire Dales Longhouse (farmhouse with barn attached) 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.  You will also be able to enjoy the sights and sounds of the country from your cottage with open views of the hills and countryside.

Both cottages have undergone a full refurbishment and offer luxurious accommodation, individually styled to maximise the original features in both cottages.  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.
