Country retreat sleeping 12 for getting together with friends, family or colleagues in the Yorkshire Dales

Holiday Rental for Groups of Families and Friends.
Skipton Cottage, Skipton, Yorkshire Dales, sleeps 12 in 6 bedrooms.

Come and enjoy the Yorkshire Dales at its best. Just minutes from the historic market town of Skipton, voted in the Sunday Times as the best place to live in Britain, Skipton Cottage (the Healthy Home) welcomes guests in its six bedrooms which can accommodate 12 people. Skipton Cottage offers a comfortable and peaceful setting for getting together with family and friends for holidays, short breaks and celebrations, as well as an ideal base for groups of walkers and cyclists, and anyone wishing to explore the beautiful Dales.

Perfect for Retreats , Personal Holidays, Family Celebrations and Business Think-Tanks, Skipton Cottage has a Big Room in the new build area of the property which has been utilised and has proved popular for Yoga Retreats, Family Parties, Celebration Dinners, and Business Meetings.

Having been used as both a family home and retreat space that has welcomed friends, family and retreat-seekers from all over the world, this haven is now available to be shared by other groups seeking to meet, gather or holiday in a special, sacred space. The house now has a total of 6 guest bedrooms (4 doubles, 2 twins) and 4 bath/shower rooms. 6 lounges/reception rooms, in addition to the kitchen with log fire, provide plenty of space for groups to gather together and for individuals to enjoy their own space.

This naturally decorated calm, quiet haven has a modern interior with the minimum of chemicals and hardly any disturbance from electro-magnetic fields (EMFs). During the renovation and building process, wherever possible, natural materials without petrochemicals have been used.

The Dales offer a huge array of activities and places of interest to suit all visitors. Hawarth, the home of the Bronte Sisters, and historic Skipton castle, as well as a host of beautiful Yorkshire villages, are all worth a visit. Access to the Pennine Way is nearby, with a fantastic network of footpaths a short stroll from the door. Local pubs provide a warm welcome and great food.
