Poppy Cottages No. 1 & 2 - Holiday Cottages
Carleton-in-Craven, Skipton - The Gateway to the Yorkshire Dales.
Set in the small village of Carleton-in-Craven, just 2 miles from the bustling market town of Skipton, known as The Gateway to the Yorkshire Dales; Poppy Cottage No. 1 and Poppy Cottage No. 2 are two individual 'luxury' self-catering holiday cottages, available for short breaks of 3 or 4 nights, with longer stays available. Both cottages have stunning views of the hills and moors that surround the town and the village and which provide a colourful and scenic backdrop. Wander across open fields, for a scenic and level walk into Skipton, crossing the River Aire which separates the village from the town. Whether you decide to travel 'on foot' or by car, Skipton is very accessible; making Poppy Cottages the perfect place for those who want to escape the hustle and bustle of the town, yet still have all the amenities, very close to hand.
Skipton is a delightful place to visit with its historic past and 4-day a week, open market in the centre of the town. Skipton's medieval castle, one of the best-preserved castles in the country, sits proudly at the top of the 'award-winning' High Street and as the Gateway to the Yorkshire Dales; the stunning 'Yorkshire' countryside and 'Dales' villages are just a short drive away from Skipton.
Poppy Cottage No. 1 with the fabulous hot tub is a one bedroomed cottage, ideal for couples wanting a cosy retreat. Poppy Cottage No. 2 is a larger cottage and will appeal families and small groups. Both cottages have undergone a full refurbishment and have been converted from what was the original barn to Ivy Cottage Farm;a traditional 'Yorkshire Dales Longhouse' (farmhouse with barn attached) dating 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 you will see wandering around at the rear. The cottages are attached to the original farmhouse but are quite separate although we are always on hand to help out with any queries/recommendations you may have during your stay.
The cottages are cleaned and maintained by ourselves to a very high standard and to save you packing everything but the kitchen sink, we ensure that your cottage is kitted out with: hand and bath towels; complimentary toiletries; hairdryers. In the kitchen we provide, tea towels and hand towels; dishwasher tablets; washing up liquid and cloths. We also provide some basic food essentials, such as a selection of breakfast cereals, cornflakes, branflakes, granola; 'Yorkshire Tea' bags, freeze-dried coffee sticks, white sugar sticks; salt and pepper and a selection of condiments. You will also find a jug of fresh semi-skimmed milk in your fridge, for that all important cuppa on your arrival. Your wood burning stove will be pre-laid and ready to be lit, with a supply of follow-on fuel left.
The village shop, just a 5-minute walk away, supply fresh local produce along with newspapers, wines and beers and is open 7 days a week until 10pm. The village pub - The Swan Inn, is just a 5-mine walk away and serves evening meals most nights for those who want a night off cooking. The new Coffee Shop and village hub are next door to the Swan, open from 8-30am for breakfast.
Please give me a call me (Sally) on 01756 792874 if you would like any more information or would like to make a booking over the phone, rather than online, I'm always happy to help.
