About the Owner

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.

Fantastic stay at No 36.

Our stay at No. 36 was top notch. Bev and Andrew were always quick to respond to any queries throughout the booking process and gave us a warm welcome when we arrived. The property surpassed our expectations and was exceptionally clean. It was great to discover the game selection! It was an ideal base to discover Skipton and the surrounding areas. We will be certain to use No. 36 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!

From the Owner

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.
