We chose Poppy Cottage because of its location - a small farm on the edge of a village, not far from Skipton. Steve and Sally have created a fantastic B&B out of their farmhouse. They are very friendly and helpful hosts - even offering the use of their personal laundry. Poppy Cottage has a very pleasant guest lounge, plus guests... More

We had a lovely stay here, from Sally's very warm welcome including making us a pot of tea, with a warm fire in the guest lounge to the friendly departure. The Sunflower room is very comfortable, nicely appointed and beautifully clean, with some very nice touches such as little chocolates with the "tea tray".

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Poppy Cottage Guest House is situated in the quiet little village of Carleton, just 2 miles from the bustling market town of Skipton, known as the Gateway to the Yorkshire Dales and is within easy level walking distance using the public footpath into town. Having its own entrance, stairs, lounge, dining room and private garden, guests will enjoy the privacy of the cottage yet benefit from the service provided by hosts, Steve & Sally. In particular the hearty Yorkshire breakfast, prepared to your liking using bacon and sausage from our own outdoor reared pigs and fresh eggs courtesy of our hens who you will see roaming freely 'up top'. Breakfast is served in a relaxed atmosphere at a time to suite you, all in what was the original farm kitchen. ... more   less
