Poppy Cottages No. 1 & 2 and The Granary

@ Ivy Cottage Farm, Carleton-in-Craven

Skipton, North Yorkshire 

COVID-19 UPDATE - To all our guests past, present and future - we would like to update you on the situation here at Poppy Cottages. 

Following advice and the restrictions now in place, the cottages and the Granary are closed until the middle of May. We will be reviewing the situation and following the advice from the government.  If you have stayed here before you will know that we take great pride in the high levels we set ourselves with regards to cleaning and maintaining the cottages. These are very worrying times and we will keep you posted if there are any changes here at Poppy Cottages. Steve and Sally Hall - 24th March 2020


Poppy Cottages No. 1 & 2 and The Granary are three beautiful and individual holiday cottages, situated in the pretty village of Carleton-in-Craven, just 2 miles and within comfortable walking distance of the market town of Skipton. Lovingly restored and created from what was the original barn and farm buildings to Ivy Cottage farm, the cottages now provide luxurious accommodation for visitors exploring this beautiful part of the southern Yorkshire Dales.  

Sadly no longer a working farm, Ivy Cottage Farm dates back to the late 16th Century and is a traditional Yorkshire Dales longhouse - farmhouse with barn attached. Restored over the years and retaining many of the original charm and character of a property from this era, Ivy Cottage Farm is home to ourselves, Steve and Sally Hall. "Living 'on-site' means we are always on hand to help out with any queries you may have during your stay. We take great pride in the cottages, which are cleaned and maintained by ourselves. Our aim being, to provide guests with a real 'home from home' experience". 

Set back off Main Street, the cottages have stunning views of the hills and countryside that stretch across the valley into Skipton, with the moors that surround the town providing a colourful and scenic backdrop.   The village has a friendly pub, The Swan Inn, which serves breakfast, lunch and dinner along with some fine ales; a well-stocked and very popular Village Store, open 7 days a week. There are many delightful walks around the village and across the fields and River Aire taking you into Skipton. Or maybe for a hassle-free day out take the bus from Carleton into Skipton. 

Skipton is a thriving market town with Street Markets and Festivals held on the cobbled High Street and in the Canal Basin. The Medieval Castle sits proudly at the top of the High Street with its colourful woods, walks and waterways a delight to discover. Skipton is known as 'The Gateway to the Yorkshire Dales' and as the name suggests, it provides travellers with easy access and connections to the many Dales' towns and villages further afield. With connections from Skipton's train station onto the famous Settle to Carlisle line, you'll never be short of places to go or things to see and do.

For all these reasons and many more we believe Poppy Cottages and The Granary provide the ideal base for those who to escape the 'hustle and bustle' of the town yet still have all the amenities very close to hand.  

Please give me a call (Sally) on 01756 792874 if you would like to talk through your requirements, I'm always happy to help.
