Need some Accommodation Inspiration?
There’s never been a better time to book a holiday in the Skipton area. With miles of beautiful countryside and huge stretches of unbroken idyllic scenery, it’s the ideal destination for hikers, holidaymakers or those simply looking to get away from it all. Before you rush into booking any flights out of the country or think about booking an expensive cruise away – stop and consider spending that money in wonderful Yorkshire instead!
Conveniently placed on the edge of two Areas of National Beauty and one National Park, Skipton makes for a perfect base for any would-be adventurers looking to get out and explore what the area has to offer. Whilst you’re here you can check out the litany of events and things going on around the Yorkshire Dales.
Before you think about looking elsewhere for places to stay, have a look at our selection of accommodation options and remember this is just a slice of what’s on offer!
Sarah’s Cosy Basement Apartment
Glowing reviews of this charming Edwardian terrace can be read on the Airbnb page where the whole basement annex is offered at an extremely reasonable £70 a night. Although the apartment is without a cooker or kitchen, the family is more than happy to recommend places to eat and drink. With a good size double bedroom, complete with drawers and wardrobe, you’ll feel more than comfortable in this typically British home.
For maximum proximity to the Forest of Bowland, this exquisite static Caravan site should not be overlooked. This park offers a great variety of accommodation options for would-be explorers looking find to a snug little retreat from the rugged wilderness of the Area of National Beauty that is literally a stone’s throw away at some points. If you’d rather stay in more traditional surroundings then you can book into one of their luxury bar conversions and enjoy the benefits of the park which include a swimming pool and dedicated pub.
For those looking for a little more space (as well as housekeeping!) Herriot’s Hotel is an ideal choice. Set on the outer limits of the town, the hotel offers 25 rooms with an eye-catching blend of traditional and modern designs all captured within a Grade 2 Listed Victorian building. In addition to a small selection of deluxe ‘Superior’ rooms, they also offer single rooms and even dog friendly suites. For a great meal you need not go any further than the in-house restaurant that offers stylish dining at good value.
Niffany Caravan and Camp Site
There’s nothing quite like spending a night under the stars and your head on the ground. Camping is far and away the most affordable option for any one who doesn’t mind sleeping a little bit rough. Of course the level of comfort with which you submit yourself to is totally dependent on the gear that you’ve brought with you. Regardless, Niffany offers every amenity that you’d expect from a modern campsite with washing facilities and shower (50p per use).
