Great location
100% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
A quaint basement accommodation, within three minute walking distance from the market town of Skipton, easy access to train station and cinema and local swimming pool, the gateway to the Dales. Our accommodation does NOT have a kitchen - please read description carefully to avoid disappointment! :)

The space
The accommodation is in the basement of our family home. On speaking to past guests they have confirmed that you can hear us upstairs, but we can't hear you. Previous guests have said its like mumbled talking occasionally, the dog barking and general walking around, no one has had an issue with it, in fact the comments have been positive, stating that it makes the place more friendly and homely! We do not stay up into the early hours of the morning partying and all noise has usually ceased by 10pm! Please don’t book with us if you require total silence!!

The accommodation comprises of a lounge with open range fire, comfortable settee and table and two chairs. A large double bedroom with a king size bed, dressing table with three way mirror and plenty of storage space. PLEASE NOTE that the double bed is higher than your average double bed. The best way to describe it would be the height of a Victorian bed, I am 5’ 4” and when standing next to the bed the top of the mattress is waist height (hope that helps!). It certainly would not be suitable for anyone with mobility difficulties.
There is a single bedroom with a single bed and a pull out bed, this room could accommodate two children. There is a bedside table and a dressing table and chair in the single room plus a large wardrobe. The bathroom has a toilet, wash basin and a shower. We provide the essentials such as soap, shampoo, loo rolls, towels.
THE BASEMENT DOES NOT HAVE A KITCHEN but in the recess of the lounge there is a sideboard with a microwave, toaster, kettle, tea, coffee, sugar and bread and jams for breakfast. The lounge also has a mini fridge and a cupboard with crockery, glass wear and knives and forks. There will be milk and butter in the fridge for you. There is a washing up bowl, tea towels and washing up liquid in the bathroom, all we ask is that if your stay is for a long period then could you wash and dry your pots as we do not ‘house keep’ during your stay.
The basement is located at the bottom of some stone steps so unfortunately it would be unsuitable for anyone struggling with steps.
We live in a quiet area of Skipton but only a two/three minute walk away from the town centre. There are plenty of restaurants and cafes in easy walking distance.
