During the years of running our guest house 'Poppy Cottage Guest House', Steve's 'Hearty' breakfast earned a reputation as being 'Excellent' and we believe this was partly due to the local produce we used. Our sausage and bacon always came from an award winning butcher in Skipton 'Drake &Macefield' and our bread supplied from bakers of Skipton 'Walkers'. Our local village store supply all of these items along with fresh farm eggs. The shop is just a short walk from the cottages and is open from 7.30am to 10.00pm 7 days a week.
And knowing just how important breakfast is, we like to make sure that there are some basic breakfast essentials in your cottage, with a selection of cereals, cornflakes, branflakes and granola, all kept fresh in Kilner glass storage jars. We also ensure that there is plenty of Yorkshire teabags, coffee and sugar in your kitchen along with a jug of fresh semi-skimmed milk in your fridge, for that all important cuppa on arrival.
- Our village pub - The Swan Inn www.swaninncarleton.co.uk serve food from 12am daily and from the cottages is just a 2 minute walk away.
- Just a short drive away are two great places to eat - The Bull at Broughton www.thebullatbroughton.co.uk or The Tempest Arms at Elslack www.tempestarms.co.uk Both of these places are approx 3 miles for the cottages. Bookings may be required.
- Skipton is just a 5-minute drive away, where you will find many fine eating establishments. Or on a lovely evening, wander across the fields into town and if you don't feel up to the walk back, then taxis run into the village and generally cost around £5.
- We keep a well-stocked supply of menus for what we believe are the best places to eat in town. Previous guests are encouraged to leave reviews and feedback on their 'eating out experiences' in the Guest Books, so you will be well informed of what's hot and what's not.
