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 skiptonholidaysnumber36.com for additional information, photographs and late deals.

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, (Smart TV), 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.

Check out our website at skiptonholidaysnumber36.com.

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 35 years and have 2 grown up sons.

We are now proud granparents to our grandson Stanley, born 10th May 2017.

Beverley Bell purchased this house in 2013

Why Beverley Bell chose North Yorkshire

We bought this property just over 6 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.

Check out our website skiptonholidaysnumber36.com for further information, photographs and late deals.

Fantastic house and conveniently located

  • 5 of 5

A great stay in a superb house, the pictures do not do it justice. It was lovely to be met by Andrew and Bev with the added bonus of biscuits and a bottle of wine. Lots of places to see and do all within easy reach. A good choice of pubs and restaurants, we found Brody's Italian very welcoming when we celebrated a family birthday at the end of the week. We would highly recommend this house to explore the Dales and will hopefully return ourselves.

Great location. Very Homely.

Lovely house - even nicer than it looks in the pictures. Perfect location to explore but close to the town centre for pubs/restaurants etc. House was clean and tidy and we were provided with tea/coffee etc and a lovely bottle of red which was a nice touch!

Lovely house, very clean and well equipped.

  • 5 of 5

The owners are fantastic, really quick communicators and very friendly. The house is lovely and clean and very comfortable with everything you could need. It is really close to the center of Skipton. Parking is on the street but we always managed to park very close to the house and in most cases, right outside. Would recommend and would stay again if on holiday in Skipton.

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.

Hope you had a good New Years Eve and had a safe journey back home. Hope to see you again. Regards Bev & Andrew
