This wing of the owner's home situated less than 4 miles from Skipton sleeps three people in two bedrooms.

Craven Forge is a two storey wing of the owner's home, set next to a canal and less than 4 miles from Skipton, known as The Gateway to the Dales. This cottage sleeps three people in two second floor bedrooms, consisting of one king-size double and one single, as well as a second floor bathroom. The cottage also has a first floor open plan living area with kitchen, dining area and sitting area.

Outside there is off road parking for two cars and a patio with furniture. With walks and cycle routes, Skipton nearby and many attractions to visit in the Yorkshire Dales National Park, makes Craven Forge an ideal base to stay.


The part I loved best was looking out of the window at the antics of the sheep in the fields, plus the lovely walks from the door along the canal were brilliant.
Mrs Harrison

This house is right on the Leeds to Liverpool canal and is fantastic for walking along the canal path into Skipton. The owner had left fresh flowers, milk, tea, coffee and a nice bottle of wine which was a lovely thought. The views are fantastic and the accommodation very clean and cosy and parking for 2 cars. The property is on a very busy A road and although the property has got secondary glazed windows it can very loud, in the double bedroom there is a round window that is only double glazed so the owners supply a big pillow put in the hole to help with the noise, we did not find this helped at all so sleeping could be a problem. There are some steps up to the door, the stones were very lose and when you stepped on them they flipped up. The property would not suite people with physical disabilities because of the access to the door and the stairs in the property. We enjoyed our stay at the Craven Forge and would recommend it .

The cottage was decorated and furnished to an excellent standard, with lovely personal touches. Everywhere was spotlessly clean.
Mrs Pugh

A comfortable cosy cottage in a good position for touring the dales.
Mrs Johnson

We were using this property to stay in while our new house was ready for occupation. It is very comfortable and well furnished. The views are amazing with wonderful sunsets and lovely walks along the canal. The owner was extremely pleasant and accommodating/helpful and nothing is too much trouble. We would definitely recommend this property to stay in.
