very dissappointed
Craven House Pros Easy walking distance to Skipton town centre. Good bus and train services from Skipton giving access to excellent walking in North Yorkshire. Supermarket around the corner. Lots of things to see and do in and around the area. Craven House Cons Directly onto a busy and noisy road. On road parking free 24/7 but spaces can be hard to come by. Front ?garden? suffers from traffic fumes and noise, also not enough room for everyone to sit together anyway. Just two benches and one seemed a bit iffy looking at the way the seat flexed. Back courtyard enclosed by high walls but enough seating for everyone. Craven House needs a good dose of TLC fresh paint, modern carpets etc. Unhygienic rugs in bathroom ? yuk ? and mouldy shower base mastic on top floor. Top floor double ? wet carpet (had to leave window open all day for several days and use hairdryer) damp, musty smell. It also has a narrow wardrobe which will only allow clothes to be hung sideways. One bedroom on the second floor has NO wardrobe ? either live out of your case or hang everything on the door!!! Kitchen needs sorting out. It is supposedly well equipped but ? Only one sharp knife. Toaster will only toast 2 slices at a time as other slots are broken. Except for dinner plates there is not enough of the same crockery or wine glasses for 14. Chipped bowls and side plates are not pretty. Greasy oven trays ? why? Dirty, in fact filthy, bread knife ? the toothed edge was totally clogged. A mish mash of unnecessary and unusable glassware. Ancient tv which has ?buzzy? audio. I would post photographs if allowed to.

Large,warm family house
We had a family gathering of 13 adults and 3 babies in this large, very warm and quiet house conveniently situated in Skipton. It is well equipped and has a huge dining table which seats everyone. Beds are comfortable although the doubles are standard not king size, some ensuite rooms with baths. Well stocked kitchen with aga and dishwasher, loads of crockery and glasses; all is very clean. The house is close to the canal, shops and market and the castle. Lots to do in Skipton.

A great size house for a family holiday, in a great location. Everything was provided for in the house. Excellent.
Mrs Berry

In an excellent position in Skipton. The owners couldn't be more helpful and everything is provided at Craven House for a most enjoyable stay.
