About the property

3 bedroomed character property just 5 minutes walk from Skipton's High Street

A beautiful home from home atmosphere awaits you at Number 36; tastefully modernised, but keeping plenty of it's original features, this impressive Victorian house, with it's high ceilings, large windows and tree lined location is only 5 minutes walk from Skipton's historic High Street and famous market.

Check out our website, found in the 'Facilities' section.

Spotlessly clean throughout, this lovely spacious 3 bedroom home provides a welcome breath of fresh air within this beautiful region renowned for it's location within the Yorkshire Dales.

The huge advantage of Number 36 is the accessibility to Skipton town centre on foot. Just a 5 minute stroll takes you to the award winning High Street where you can enjoy all the delights of this lovely market town. There's something extremely satisfying about rounding off a morning or evening stroll through Skipton Woods or along the canal with a hearty meal at one of the many restaurants and pubs in the town centre, catering for all tastes and budgets.

But why not hire a bike and venture further afield? A wide choice of mountain or road bikes are available for hire, just a 5 minute walk from Number 36. Fill your day with a leisurely jaunt along the canal to the pretty villages of Gargrave or Bradley, or lose yourself on the meandering country lanes or bridleways around Malham and Bolton Abbey.

As the jewel in the crown of this beautiful region, Skipton is the perfect location from which to explore.

North Yorkshire is of course a walkers paradise, where you can stroll through the lush green fields of Wharfedale, or a hill walk directly from Number 36 with spectacular views of Skipton's stunning countryside.

But this is also 3 Peaks country where you can attempt one of the most challenging hikes in the UK, twenty five miles over 3 mountains, Penyghent, Whernside & Ingleborough.

Regardless, you can return to Number 36, freshen up in the shower then relax back at base, before dining at one of Skipton's numerous award winning restaurants and pubs, or just eat in making use of the well equipped kitchen.

Afterwards you can sit and chat at the table or spread out on the sofa; maybe catch up with your favourite TV programs, watch a DVD or play a game in our lovely bay windowed lounge.

We really have spared no expense in equipping and furnishing Number 36 - enjoy!

3 bedrooms, 1 Super King can split into 2 singles, 1 double and 1 single room, all with ample storage and quality bedding.

Large house bathroom with separate shower cubicle.

Light and airy lounge with comfy sofas and a separate dining room with log burner (seasonal).

A modern fully equipped kitchen with dishwasher.

Outside seating and storage for bikes etc.

Free wi-fi and Smart TV.

Ample on street parking.

About Beverley Bell

We have lived in and around Skipton for the past 23 years and purchased Number 36 three years ago as our family home, before deciding that we believed it would make a fantastic holiday home due to it's size and location.

Surrounded by beautiful countryside and the Yorkshire Dales on the doorstep we feel it has lots to offer for a great holiday or short break. The Dales provide one of the best walking areas in the country and as keen walkers ourselves we get our boots on whenever time allows.

We live nearby and lovingly look after Number 36 ourselves, to ensure it is furnished, maintained and cleaned to a very high standard.

We have been married for 33 years and have 2 grown up sons.

Beverley Bell purchased this house in 2013

Why Beverley Bell chose Yorkshire Dales

We bought this property just over 3 years ago and have upgraded and modernised it, then decided that it would make a superb holiday let, as it is something we have always wanted to do. We have tried to make the property as family or couple friendly as we could, and also the position of the property makes it an ideal location to explore Skipton and the fabulous surrounding areas.

The rooms are all of a generous proportion with leather and fabric sofas in the light and airy lounge, and a wood floor compliments both the dining room and entrance hall.

We have decorated the inside and outside sympathetically and really believe this will be one of the premier holiday lets in Skipton.

Please note, that throughout the year we offer a 10% discount if only 2 people are staying in the property for a minimum of 7 nights and using only 1 bedroom.

What makes this house unique

Surrounded by idyllic Dales Countryside, known locally as 'The Gateway to the Dales' and situated just a 5 minute easy walk from Skipton's award winning High Street, with it's excellent shopping and recreational facilities.

There are plenty of pubs, restaurants and takeaways in the town centre to suit all budgets, and countless coffee shops and tea rooms to choose from.

Skipton is served by 3 supermarkets within walking distance, and also just out of town is Keelham Farm shop and Aldi

Beautiful house with lovely hosts

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a home-from-home then this property is the place for you.

The house is beautifully decorated, great value, spotless and has all the home comforts that you could wish for.

Bev and Andrew are amazing hosts with nothing too much trouble - even providing an extra chair so that we could entertain my parents in the evening.

The house is just a short walk from Skipton town centre and within easy driving/walking to beautiful countryside and activities.

Thank you for a lovely relaxing holiday!

Exceptional cottage for the perfect Yorkshire getaway

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I had the most wonderful stay at No.36 Holiday Cottage in Skipton. The Cottage is perfect, with all of the amenities needed to make your stay incredibly relaxing and stress free. It is a perfect location for exploring the area and a very short walk away from all of the pubs, restaurant and shops in Skipton. We had a very warm welcome from Bev and Andrew which was a perfect way to start our stay.

I would recommend this cottage to anyone and can’t wait to visit again.

Outstanding Stay!

  • 5 of 5

My family and myself enjoyed a 5 night stay at Andrew and Beverley's rental home in Skipton. The accommodation was absolutely lovely, beautifully decorated and so homely. Everything that we could have needed was already provided, including a lovely cake and biscuits which our children really appreciated when we arrived. Andrew was there to meet us when we arrived, giving us a little tour of the house and helped us with some general information about Skipton and the surrounding area. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again in the future. Thank you so much for our home away from home!
