Town House is right next to the bus station in Skipton and is ideally located for people like us who don't drive. We did get off to a slightly tricky start in that we arrived to find no one home and, having rung the owner's mobile number, found out he was driving home and would be about 15 minutes or so. It wouldn't have been too much of an issue except the were shivering in the icy and unseasonably snowy blasts of March in North Yorkshire and were not in great humour when he arrived. That said, we found a friendly welcome and a pleasant, bijou room up in the eaves, complete with dormer window and the distinct danger of concussion on the sloping ceiling for anyone taller than us - if you are a strapping six foot plus, do beware of room 5! The room itself was spotlessly clean and tidy and decorated in a simple but attractive way. it's a surprise to find an en suite bathroom with an actual bath in it these days, sadly the shower attachment is the same one we have at home and we know, to our cost, doesn't work well with low water pressure. If you love a soak in the bath instead, however, you will be very happy. We also couldn't get the fan heater in the bathroom to work though the light came on. maybe we had just not figured it out. in any case, it didn't especially matter as the room was not that cool. Although the house is in a yard behind a pub and club, we found we had a reasonably quiet night aside from a couple of cats having a scrap outside at about 2am! Not much one can do about that as cats don't respond to an ASBO. Breakfast was great and our host had made porridge at our request though we guessed from his surprised expression not many folk opt for it rather than the traditional cooked breakfast. We would certainly stay again. It's clean, quiet and sensibly priced. Those with a mobility problem would need to request a ground floor room as there are a lot of stairs.
