Great location
100% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
Situated next to the castle in the historic centre of Skipton, officially the happiest place in the UK and gateway to the Yorkshire Dales, the property benefits from a rural secluded feel, but is just two minutes’ walk from the centre of the town.

There are wonderful walks to enjoy from the door in Skipton woods, or up on the fells. We have canals, steam railways, Bolton Abbey and the Yorkshire Dales national park, all within easy reach.

The space
The Bailey offers a unique option for those looking for something a bit different, in the form of our quirky but luxurious Shepherd’s Hut. Whether you’re looking for an escape from the hustle and bustle of urban life, or a romantic getaway, the Shepherd’s Hut is perfect. The Shepherd's Hut was built to our unique design and provides comfort, romance and a step away from the norm.

The Shepherd’s Hut was custom built to our detailed specifications to accommodate two people in luxury. It has fully plumbed in facilities including a plush bathroom and a beautiful fully equipped kitchen. We have fitted a log burner for cooler evenings but it has electric heating too to give you the most comfortable stay possible. Simply, it’s a one of a kind!

The Shepherd’s Hut is charmingly quaint and within its spacious interior you’ll find a stunning, modern and clean en-suite shower room, a fully equipped kitchen which includes a fridge, hob, oven, kettle, toaster and of course a kitchen sink. We’ve taken the utmost care to choose the comfiest bed we could find and also include top quality bedding to ensure you have the best night’s sleep possible. We also provide towels. The Shepherd’s Hut includes a wood burning stove which will warm you as you enjoy the stunning sunsets over sheep pastures, whatever time of year you visit.

Whilst check in is from 15:00 and check out by 10:00, guests are welcome to park up from 12:00 noon to explore Skipton and can remain parked until 12:00 noon on the day of departure.

Mark has spent 30 years in Corporate Banking – but decided that the trouble with the rat race is that even if you win the race, you are still a rat. He always dreamt of running a holiday business and decided enough was enough. When bankers became the new traffic wardens it was time for a change. Mark is the lead cellist with Leeds Symphony Orchestra and plays cornet in Otley and Skipton Brass Bands. He is a keen fell runner and cyclist.

Kay is a practising physiotherapist dividing her time between paediatric patients and her true love, veterinary physio. She qualified with a masters in veterinary physio this year and has launched a new business in Skipton – The Dog Physio.
