"Thank you for a great weekend the staff are a credit to you nothing was too much and the castle and canal trip included great value!" Mrs A Fairclough of Cleveleys


Skipton - history, charm and character.

Awarded Britain's ‘Great Street of the Year 2009' accolade saw Skipton beat off competition from London's Kensington High Street and Portobello Road. It's no surprise then that this vibrant market town offers so much to explore - from its picturesque canal-ways and cobbled streets to independent shops and historic buildings, Skipton is the perfect destination for a short break or as a base for visitors to the Yorkshire Dales.

Skipton Castle is certainly a must-see - situated at the top of the High Street this medieval castle is one of the best-preserved in the country. From the top of the watchtower you can admire the magnificent rolling hills of the Dales, reminding you there's so much more to discover!

Skippered Cruises for up to 8 adults!

We have teamed up with Airedale Cruising who can offer skippered canal cruises on narrowboat Lizzie-Jean.  You will be picked up from the canal path at the rear of the hotel  on the famous Leeds  and Liverpool Canal.  You can select from a variety of slow, gentle cruises either northwest towards the picturesque Yorkshire Dales village of Gargrave, or south to Farnhill Wood and the villages of Bradley and Kildwick.  This is a great way to learn some canal barge skills whilst taking in the beautiful tranquil surroundings. 

Celebrate birthdays, anniversaries or even provide transport to your wedding - for details of packages and further information either contact reception or visit the Airedale Cruising website:
