A former canal-side pub which has recently been beautifully redesigned and renovated. It has magnificent views along the canal and across the Aire Valley . The front door opens onto the Leeds Liverpool canal towpath.

It has a large open plan living room and a well designed kitchen with a separate utility space. The downstairs bathroom has both a shower and bath, and upstairs there is a double bedroom and a separate mezzanine area.

The space
The property is very light and spaceous with a very high ceiling in the living area. It has an excellent central heating system and a wood burner for use in the colder months making it comfortable all year round. It still has the original beautiful wood beams in the high ceiling, and wood from the former bar has been used to make sills in the living area.

The living room has two comfortable sofas and a new 50 inch SMART TV and an assortment of puzzles and games for all ages. It also has spectacular views from all the windows. The windows facing the canal towpath are fitted with shutters which guests can open or close depending on their preferences. The dining area has an extendable table which will easily seat up to 6 people. There is a wood burner in the corner of this area.

The kitchen has a useful breakfast bar which seats 2 people, a fridge, freezer, small dishwasher, a fitted microwave, an electric oven and an induction hob with extractor fan. It is well equipped with crockery, glasses, cutlery and all you will need for self catering including baking and cooking a roast dinner!

As you leave the kitchen you enter a corridor with access to the bathroom with a large shower-bath, a basin with a vanity unit, a WC and a bathroom mirror which has a blue-tooth speaker. Along the corridor from the bathroom is a small utility space which contains the washer/dryer and cleaning equipment plus items such as the high chair.

The stairs next to the bathroom door go up to the bedroom and the mezzanine area. The bedroom has a very comfortable king-sized bed and a large fitted wardrobe which also contains a drawer unit. it has a second SMART TV in it. The mezzanine has wonderful views down to the living area and can be used as additional sleeping space. It has a comfortable single day bed with a pull-out trundle bed beneath it which we can make up to provide 2 single beds. In this area there is a book cases with a variety of books and a small set of drawers. It also has some clothes hooks. Guests sleeping here may need to share the bedroom wardrobe facility which is very spacious. The velux windows in the ceiling of the mezzanine have black out blinds, but this is not an enclosed space like the bedroom is, so during daylight hours, it is not possible to make it completely dark.

There is a travel cot with linen, which will be put in the bedroom if requested for infants.

We welcome up to 2 dogs and have a clean dog bed, dog blankets and towels and a dog bowl for use by our canine guests.

Location

Farnhill, England, United Kingdom

This is a wonderful area for walking and enjoying the countryside. There are lovely walks along the towpath and on Farnhill Moor.

Being close to the Yorkshire Dales, there are also many more adventurous walks nearby. We have information about local walks in the property.

For guests who are particularly interested in the canal, a number of local canal boat companies hire day boats and details of these will be available to you.

The market town, Skipton, is well worth a visit, includuing Skipton Castle and Skipton Castle Woods. In the other direction is the village of Howarth with the Bronte Parsonage Museum and numerous quaint shops. The city of Leeds is a short drive or train ride from the property.

There is a pub within two minutes walk from the property and this now serves food. There is also a curry house, a fish and chip shop and an Italian Restaurant within walking distance and numerous other nice pubs and restaurants a short drive away

We are happy to provide further information and advice to guests when they visit.

I live in a beautiful village in North Yorkshire with my husband, Tim, two Labradors and a cat. We enjoy an active retirement with frequent trips away in our motorhome. I am involved in the local community as chair of governors at our village primary school and a member of the PCC. We have three children and two, soon to be three, grandchildren, most of whom live nearby.

During your stay
I am around most days and will give guests my contact details. Having recently retired, I do enjoy long breaks with my husband and two dogs in our motorhome. When I am away, I will ensure guests have contact details of my daughter, Bethan, who works with me to host Canal Cottage. She lives locally and will be happy to help with any queries you may have. She will also send you the check in details if I am away.
