Bob's cottage is spotless, well laid out, very comfortable and has lovely views across an unspoiled valley. Easy to find with the owners directions (probably best to ignore your sat-nav), and reasonably handy to Otley for eating out/take-aways. Wish we could have stayed longer...and will...More

About the neighborhood
Skipton is often referred to as the gateway to the dales and mixes an old market town feel with all modern facilities. You may wish to visit the castle, take a trip on the canal or visit on market day. For a unique experience why not visit the theatre at the cattle auction, selling sheep by day a live show at night. Harrogate is famous as a spa town and well as all the normal high st stores boasts some of the finest boutique shopping in the north of England. Or why not book a session at the Turkish baths or visit the valley gardens, a haven in the middle of town. Also check out what is on at the showground. Moving in to the Dales then Settle, Ripon, Grassington, Masham, Kettlewell, Ingleton and Leyburn are all within an hours drive.
Getting around
Within an hour you can be in York city centre, again by train or car with access to the Jorvic centre, chocolate experience or Minster or why not shop in the shambles. Finally if sport is your thing then we have an abundance of local sports facilities including golf, athletics and horse riding whilst Otley is a famous cycling town. The racecourses of Ripon, Wetherby and Thirsk are all less than 45 minutes away. We are 6 miles from the nearest railway station and 5 miles from the nearest bus so a car is pretty essential
