A group of 10 of us stayed here. Lovely scenic surroundings. 2 mile walk into Skipton. Two local pubs. Very friendly. Local steam train to Bolton Abbey took you back in time. Lots around to see.
Fab accommodation had everything we needed. Roomy throughout. Better than the advertised pictures. Spotless and nicely decorated. All beds were comfy. Showers and bath were newly fitted. Well equipped kitchen for our group cooking our own meals. 3 draw freezer. Large tall fridge. Dish washer and washer/dryer. Lots of pots and pans. T.towels. Etc. Take your own towels and hair dryer. Home from home. Bbq outside and decked area with table and chairs. Highly recommended for family or group. Loved it. Would go again. thanks to the owners for a fab affordable holiday cottage. Angie.

“Excellent Accommodation”
Reviewed 23 December 2014 for a stay in December 2014

Stayed with a large group of friends, and thoroughly enjoyed it. The cottage has everything you'd need, excellently equipped, great views and a lovely location in a very pretty village just a couple of miles from Skipton. Great communal living room, spacious rooms, well equipped kitchen, nice touches like games and books to read, massive telly if needed. Wooden floors can be cold on the feet so take slippers and don't stroke the ginger cat as it bites, but otherwise a perfect place to stay. We will be returning I am sure.

“lovely house pity about the letting agents”
Reviewed 13 March 2014 for a stay in March 2014

The house was great. The owners had left us tea bags, milk etc. There was things like tinfoil, extra blankets, soap, leaflets for local activities. The owners were also very quiet and unobtrusive. There is a large kitchen and several bedrooms (one room has bunk beds and 2 have a double bed and a single bed so if you have the total 12 people staying it could result in some interesting sleeping arrangements). the living room is also huge but not enough setting for 12 people to all watch the TV at the same time without having to sit on the floor.

Realistically I would recommend this house for a group of 8 adults or 2/3 couples with several children (depending on age and number of children).

The village and surrounding area is amazing, Bolton Abbey, Skipton the dales is all lovely. The village has 2 pubs which serve food and the locals are friendly.

I would commend the house and the area. However I would not recommend Skyes cottages. One of our party suffered a bereavement shortly before the arrival and we were faced with the choice of cancelling and risking the insurance not paying up (I didn't really feel I could ask my friend for a copy of her mothers death certificate either a few days after she had died unexpectedly) or going with a much smaller party. We did not want to risk losing the whole £600 so some of us went. This was disappointing, it would have been much better if we could have changed the dates or amended it to a smaller house but they were very unhelpful. Frankly I got the impression once they had your money they didn't care about being helpful.

I would not use them again and will certainly pass the word around my friends and family to stay clear.
