Stay in Skipton holiday cottages and fall in love with all Yorkshire has to offer
Skipton is a charming little market town in the North of Yorkshire. It is surrounded by impressive, characteristic green British countryside in the form of the Yorkshire Dales, to the south. The River Aire adds to the idyllic country landscape which sets this town apart as such a special place.
Things to do while staying in Skipton holiday cottages
The Yorkshire Dales make staying in a Skipton holiday cottage an attractive option for people looking to make the most of the great outdoors, as the area lends itself to walking, cycling, and simply taking in the views. A holiday home in Skipton would be a great option for a little break with your walking group. There are also several attractions to keep you busy in the town itself. Skipton Little Theatre and Mart Theatre promise to provide evening entertainment. The latter also provides rural theatre, for an authentic experience. There are many restaurants in the town, with a host of different foods from all over the world. Craven Museum & Gallery is also worth a visit to find out about the town's history. Find a Skipton holiday home in May, and take part in the Skipton Waterways festival, a boat canal festival which takes place every year.
Further afield – where else to go while you're here
If the two night clubs in Skipton don't cut it for you and you want a bit more of a taste of city life, the amazing city of Leeds is less than an hour away. If you're staying in a Leeds holiday apartment, pop over to Skipton and experience a more peaceful side of Yorkshire. Likewise, it's worth visiting Leeds if you're staying in Skipton and want to also see some big city life. Further afield, in the south of the county, Sheffield is a town with real character, that you will reach in under an hour from Skipton. With so much to do in and around the area, Skipton holiday cottages are a great way to get a feel for the north of England.
