Poppy Cottage No. 1 & Poppy Cottage No. 2

'Luxury' self-catering cottages

Carleton-in-Craven, Skipton

formerly Poppy Cottage Guest House 


Situated in an idyllic village setting on the outskirts of Skipton, North Yorkshire,  Poppy Cottage No. 1 & Poppy Cottage No. 2 are two individual 'luxury' self-catering cottages, set in their own courtyard and are just a 5-minute drive from Skipton, the Gateway to the Yorkshire Dales.  Poppy Cottage No. 1 is ideal for 2 people and has a fabulous outdoor hot-tub.   Poppy Cottage No. 2 is a slightly larger cottage with 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms and can sleep 2 to 3 people.  The cottage also has a pull out sofa bed in the lounge for an additional 2 people.

The cottages have been converted from the original barn attached 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.  No longer a working farm, Ivy Cottage Farm is home to ourselves, Steve and Sally Hall, our two boys and our chickens who roam freely in our small holding at the rear.  You will also be able to enjoy the sights and sounds of the country from your cottage, with open farmland, hills and countryside to the rear and far-reaching views to the front, stretching across the Aire Valley into Skipton.

Both cottages have been recently refurbished and offer luxurious accommodation, individually styled maximising 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 we even leave a pint of milk in your fridge for that all important cuppa on arrival.  Our village shop, which is open 7 days a week, can supply you with many extras with fresh local produce delivered most days.  And our friendly village pub is just a 5-minute walk away where they serve evening meals from 5pm till 8pm and now breakfast in the new coffee shop, from 8.30am.

Poppy Cottages now follow on from Poppy Cottage Guest House, which we ran for 7 years from 2009 - 2016 and gained over 215 excellents on Tripadvisor.  With our experience of running a successful B&B, our aim is to offer the same level of comfort and service and we 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 nd attractions close at hand, along with the beautiful Yorkshire Dales National Park on your doorstep.
