“Excellent venue and location”
Reviewed 13 January 2015 for a stay in January 2015

Stayed here Friday to Monday for a girls weekend of socialising, shopping and sightseeing. Can't praise it highly enough. Huge living and dining rooms, easily accomodating 11 of us. Clean, spacious and welcomed by the very helpful owner. Beds comfortable and clean. Will definitely use it again. Not much outside space but that didn't affect us at this time of year. we had a great time.

“Great Family Home!”
Reviewed 26 October 2014 for a stay in October 2014

From the minute we opened the door we knew we had made the right choice. We were meeting up with family from New Zealand and wanted somewhere to have a family get together. The house was roomy and there was plenty of space for people to disappear if they wanted to be on there own.
I loved the big family kitchen and the Aga was perfect, especially as I had about 25 people for lunch on the Sunday.
The location was ideal and we were only a few minutes walk from Skipton and as parking was a bit of a problem, we tended to leave the car where it was. The location was also ideal to do the touristy bit, and we went to Leeds, York, Bolton Abbey, Billy Bobs Diner and in to Bradford to visit family.
I have never felt that I could settle back in Yorkshire and have been away for 17 years, but staying here made me rethink. If I won the lottery tomorrow, I would definitely be making an offer to buy :-)

“Great week at Craven House”
Reviewed 24 March 2014 for a stay in March 2014

This is a large, well furnished, comfortable house with an excellent location with a five minute stroll to the town centre and even less to the supermarkets. Plenty of pace for a larger group of people to spread themselves around in, and very well equipped. We spent a week in Craven House and would recommend it to any larger group or family that enjoys spending time in these types of properties. The town of Skipton was surprisingly good and interesting enough to spend plenty of time looking around, and doing this more than once. We enjoyed our visit to Skipton Castle, and Howarth, Bolton Abbey and Settle made interesting half day trips within a comfortable 30 minute drive.

Nothing we could find that could be criticized directly, but perhaps king sized double beds and showers rather than baths in some of the bathrooms would be better suited for some people, but that’s all we could think of, and this shouldn’t put anyone off booking Craven House. The property and Skipton are a delight.

“Brilliant base to see the fantastic area”
Reviewed 30 August 2013 for a stay in August 2013

Just come back from a week at Craven House. 14 family members aged 6 - 72. The bedrooms and bathrooms are beautiful, lounge and dining room are homely and big enough to fit us all in and the kitchen provided a great space to prepare meals, we even managed to use the Aga instead of the gas oven. The location of Craven house is perfect, walking distance into Skipton and short drives to some amazing places, (kids loved Ilkley Lido) . Although the house is right near a big Tescos it was still lovely to find the cupboard full of left over essentials. This is a massive bonus and doesn't always happen when we go on our annual family week away. There is a small courtyard but the kids found the swingball and played it anytime we were home, they didn't once complain about the lack of grass. We would all definitely recommend this house.

Liked best: The cleanliness of the entire house even though it was enormous. I certainly wouldn't want the job of cleaning it.
Liked least: Nothing, it was all good.
