Reviews

Thank you for a lovely stay, we came to see Yarndale and the cycle race. The cottage was lovely, a short walk from everything in Skipton, quiet with everything clean and working well...including the heating as it was a rainy, cold weekend!

Jill P,

We had a great time in Skipton. It is so quiet [in the cottage] we all had some fantastic sleeps. ... I am a keen gardener so really appreciate just how good the planting in the back yard is and all the work that must go into it - please accept my congratulations

Previous Customer,

We have loved staying in your house

Lynne and C,

Thanks for a lovely stay, Sarah May 2019

Past Customer,

We enjoyed staying in Green Gable. It was cosy and quiet. Skipton was the ideal location for us.

The Dutton family,

I stayed here during the Tour De France as it passed through Skipton. The house is really well situated - very close to town and important amenities but in a quiet nook so it is very peaceful. The view of the lovely Yorkshire hills are so nice and the huge bathroom is just great!!

Past Customer,

Lovely house to stay in when visiting Skipton, the Dales or nearby Towns. The House is fully equipped and well decorated throughout. Vanessa and family May 2018.

Area Information

Skipton

Welcome to Skipton, a beautiful market town in North Yorkshire. Known as the gateway to the Dales, Skipton offers an almost unrivalled array of cultural and physical activities or opportunities to relax set amid the splendour of one of the most beautiful areas of northern England.

 

For home-bodies and those looking for a lazy week or weekend, Skipton’s Waterside is perfect for a stroll and there are plenty of bars and restaurants, and a local cinema. And if even that sounds too much, there is a lovely fish and chip shop at the end of the road, serving a fine example of Yorkshire’s favourite dish.

 

Golfers, swimmers, climbers, cavers, walkers and cyclists will be in heaven here. White Scar Caves and Stump Cross Caverns are a short car ride away or a bike ride for keener cyclists. Cyclists can also follow the route of the 2014 Le Grand Depart of the Tour De France or the Tour De Yorkshire. Skipton is a stone’s throw from the both the Pennine and Nidderdale Ways and there are plenty of other fine walks to be discovered. Skipton boasts it’s own golf course and the nearby beautiful town of Ilkley has it’s own 1930s era Lido. 

 

Heritage and formal garden fans can take a ride on The Embsay steam railway which has a station for Bolton Abbey Estate famous for the Strid on the River Wharfe, visit Skipton Castle, or see the blooms at RHS Harlow Carr Gardens just outside the beautiful spa town of Harrogate. You can round any trip off with an afternoon tea in Harrogate’s famous Betty’s tearooms or seek more peaceful surroundings in a vast array of other locations such as the tearoom at Parcevall Hall.

 

Literary and movie fans can experience the scenery that inspired the Bronte’s and a short guide to movie and TV locations including The Railway Children, Harry Potter and The Calendar Girls is available on request.

 

Everyone has to eat. If you’re just after a few groceries or a full-on foodie, Skipton and its environs offer some fantastic local food. Keelham farm shop has everything you need (including a lovely cafe for a fine brunch) for your weekly shop. Or go further afield to the Wensleydale Creamery to sample Wallace and Gromit’s favourite cheese. Stop off at Jervaulx for an outstanding Brymor ice cream - many visits will be necessary to do justice to their long list of flavours.

 

Whatever your reason for holidaying in this beautiful area there will be something perfect to make your holiday at Green Gable perfect.


There's always something happening in the area, with festivals and fairs are held throughout the year. For more information on Skipton and the surrounding area and local events see our Yorkshire Dales Guide and the Festivals & Events Guide.
