As we live only next door at Ivy Cottage Farm both myself and my husband Steve are on hand for to offer any help you may need during your stay. We are really happy to offer ideas and help you with your trip and plans while visiting Skipton and the Yorkshire Dales.
We live next door to the cottage at Ivy Cottage Farm, the original farmhouse, and will be happy to help with any problems that may arise. We like to be outside and tending to the garden area but will respect our guests privacy at all times. We love to make guests feel at home and take great pride in our cottages. Our aim is to make you feel completely at home in your cottage.
All damage to the property or to the equipment must be paid for by guests. No loud music is to be played in the garden area. For security, we have a cctv system which monitors the parking and driveway area only.
Hi, I am married to Steve and we have two boys who are 19 & 17 and live in Carleton-in-Craven in our converted farmhouse on the outskirts of Skipton. Over the last 7 years we have run a small guest house but in October 2016 we said goodbye to our last guests and began to make changes to the property converting our Yorkshire Dales farmhouse and creating two holiday cottages. The work finished in March 2017 so it has been a hectic winter but we are now enjoying meeting guests throughout the summer on 2017 to the cottages. Both myself and Steve are Yorkshire born and bred and we are very proud of the beautiful area we live in. Our children are growing up so we are hoping to have more free time to travel ourselves but we are really homebirds and enjoy walking and visiting many of our own little villages in this area. We love meeting new people.
