COVID-19 Information - To all our guests, past, present and future - We are back! And we are pleased to say that we have received our 'We're Good to Go' official UK mark, demonstrating that we have a full understanding and are complying with the standards that have been put in place for holiday cottage accommodation providers.

Poppy Cottage No. 1 and The Granary are one-bedroomed, self-catering, holiday cottages/accommodation for couples only. Poppy Cottage No. 2 is our self-catering, family cottage which sleeps to 4.  We can now accept guests staying in the cottages and The Granary, from 2 separate households. 

Cleanliness and hygiene are our main priority at this time and if you have stayed here before you will know that we have always taken great pride in the high levels of cleanliness and maintenance we set ourselves. During the closure, we have taken the opportunity to up-date and deep clean the cottages. The cottages are cleaned thoroughly between stays and at this present time, we are unable to offer an early arrival- unless the cottage hasn't been occupied on the same day. Arrival times are 3pm and we ask that you leave the cottages at 10am to give us plenty of time to clean and sanitise the cottages for new arrivals.

For your own peace of mind we will be ensuring that the cottages have a full stock of cleaning materials and sanitisers. All the bedding and towels are washed professionally.  

Hot Tubs - As we have two hot-tubs (one in Poppy Cottage No. 1 and one in The Granary) we are following the advice from The Pool and Water Treatment Advisory Group and also from Public Health England, which state - 'There is no evidence that the virus that causes COVID-19 can be spread to people through the water in pools or hot tubs. With the proper operation, maintenance and disinfection treatment (e.g. with chlorine or bromine), this should remove or inactivate the virus'.  

We would like to reassure guests staying in a cottage with a hot-tub, that they are checked daily (first thing in the morning) and the required levels of treatment are added to ensure that the water is always at the correct level of sanitisation. May we remind guests that safety guidelines must be followed when using the hot-tub which can be found on our Terms and Conditions page of the website.

Please contact us if you have any concerns regarding your stay and we will keep you posted if there are any changes here at Poppy Cottages.  Stay Safe - Updated 10th July 2020.


Poppy Cottages and The Granary are beautiful holiday cottages with hot tubs, situated in the pretty village of Carleton-in-Craven, just 2 miles and within comfortable walking distance from the market town of Skipton, North Yorkshire. They have been lovingly restored from what was the original barn and farm buildings to Ivy Cottage Farm - a late 16th Century 'Yorkshire Dales' longhouse - farmhouse with barn attached. 

Sadly, Ivy Cottage Farm is no longer a working farm, although you still have all the sights and sounds of the countryside on your doorstep; with sheep and cattle grazing on the hillside and our chickens roaming freely at the rear. The original farmhouse is home to ourselves, Steve and Sally, and living on-site means we are always available to help you with any queries you may have during your stay. We clean and maintain our cottages ourselves, to a very high standard, and hopefully you will find our reviews re-iterate this.

The cottages offer a real 'escape to the country' for couples and small families, with the added plus of your very own relaxing hot tub (Poppy 1 and The Granary only) - the ideal place to be after a strenuous walk in the Dales. With stunning views of the hills and countryside that stretch across the valley into Skipton; the village has many amenities, such as the village pub - The Swan serving food; a well-stocked and very popular Village Store open 7 days a week and bus links into town. There are many delightful walks around the village, up onto the moors or across the fields into Skipton.

For all these reasons and many more we believe Poppy Cottages and The Granary provide the ideal base for those who want 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.
