Choose Your Self Catering Accommodation Carefully
30th December 2012
You’ve decided that you would like to come to the Yorkshire Dales for a holiday and to have a base in the market town of Skipton.
You type in ‘ Skipton self catering accommodation’, ‘ Skipton holiday cottages’ or ‘holiday cottages in Skipton’ or something similiar.
Google comes back with various sites with holiday cottages in Skipton and now your hard work begins, how do you filter down the results?
Well, our advice is that you look carefully at the cottage location, there are a lot of fantastic holiday cottages available, but many of them are not actually located in Skipton, but are instead situated in villages outside Skipton, often in very rural & remote Dales villages which still have Skipton as the post town.
If you want to stay in Skipton, so that you can walk into town in the evening for a meal and not have to worry about driving or if you want to be able to walk to the market and shops, then make sure the holiday cottage is in the town of Skipton. Most of them will be a few minutes walk from the town centre.
Otherwise, you could find yourself located in a lovely cottage but having to drive to the shops, restaurants, pubs, etc and parking in Skipton can be difficult and expensive!
