This terraced cottage is located in the centre of Skipton and sleeps five people in three bedrooms.

Hallam's Yard is a terraced cottage in the centre of the Yorkshire Dales market town of Skipton. The cottage sleeps five people in three bedrooms (two doubles and one single) with a family bathroom. The rest of the accommodation consists of an open plan living area with a fitted kitchen, a dining area and a sitting area.

Outside the cottage is parking for one car. Just a couple of minutes walk from the canal and the amenities of the town, Hallam's Yard is a superb cottage for a Dales holiday.


Ideal central location
We were looking to stay in or around skipton for a week, and wanted 3 bedrooms for our kids to sleep in separately. Our first impression was that the property was a little bit small and dark, however we warmed to the place over the course of the week. Our kids are aged 1.5 and 4. The stairs are steep although handily there is a door at the bottom which stops our youngest climbing them. Upstairs was a different story with the risk of a tumble so we were careful and watched our toddler like a hawk when he was upstairs. The property was clean and tidy when we arrived. We had to move some breakable stuff out of reach of little hands though, however it was mostly child friendly. Upstairs there are 3 bedrooms and a bathroom. 2 double bedrooms and a single. One of the double bedrooms has lots of storage space and a bit of extra floor space. The other double has a chest of drawers but it's pretty tight (no space for a travel cot and no hanging space which was fine for us). The single bedroom has a small wardrobe. There were bedside tables throughout. There is also a travel cot which we didn't try as we brought our own (paranoid!). The bathroom is a standard affair with toilet basin and bath with electric shower everything clean and worked fine. There were some nice touches such as bath toys for the kids etc. The Wi-Fi worked fine and there was a coffee machine which we didn't try. Microwave was a bit annoying as the timer doesn't work so we had to time stuff using phones etc. There was a high chair which came in handy. It was nice to have some essentials provided in the kitchen. The owners obviously care and this sort of thing makes a difference. I'm talking about stuff like cling film, washing up liquid etc. Overall we had a great holiday. Generally we aren't the the people who would do the same holiday twice so we won't be back, but we certainly don't regret booking 21 Hallams yard.

Comfy Cottage in Skipton.
Brilliant location right in the centre of Town & minutes from everything. Easy to find & parking space invaluable - although it is set slightly higher than the property, which means you have to lift luggage down from a wall ! Facilities are as would be expected and everything was really neat , tidy and commendably clean. Seniors might note however that the internal staircase is quite steep & includes a curve. Although a fairly typical feature for a listed cottage, some folks might find it a bit challenging. Considering its central location it was really quiet & the little outside patio was really nifty - most helpful when returning from a walk & needing to remove your muddy boots etc.. All the neighbours were really friendly & helpful. We stayed for a week and would happily have stayed longer. All in all this was a lovely holiday cottage & we would not hesitate to book again. Skipton is a terrific town with a wonderful market, lots of decent independent shops & some totally excellent pubs for evening meals. Top marks all round.

What a stunning property in an amazing location! Literally a stones throw away from a lovely pub, the canal and the town centre. On arrival we were greeted by a cake, milk in the fridge for a brew and very helpful notes and local advice.

Lovely, cosy cottage in a great central location
We booked this cottage for a base to explore the dales and to be near a town in case the weather as poor (which it was). We didn't realise just how central the house is, however it's in a really quiet location. It's what estate agents would describe as cosy, but has a nice gas fire, games for the kids and a good selection of DVDs. The house is less than a minutes walk from the centre of Skipton. The nearby Aagrah is worth a try as are the many many pubs. The house has newly installed wifi. If you have a baby, bring blackout blinds as the curtains in the larger bedroom are thin. Overall this was a great cottage in a central location and we'll use it again.

We loved the cottage, it was in a great location and was better than we expected! It was lovely and warm, very homely, and we didn't want to leave!
