‘It's very handy for the bus station, high street, and accessible to the rail station. The photo clearly shows that there are steps to the front door. The kitchen is well-equipped and there's a good view over the hills from the front room.’

‘This was a very well equipped cottage, very close to the town centre. Comfortable and quaint. Because of its elevated position it would not suit anyone with mobility difficulties. There is a parking space but it is not the easiest to access. Also, although the shower is a wonderful sight to behold, it is difficult to get in and out of if you are not very mobile. As we are both fit and active it was wonderful for us and my wife and I had a fantastic stay’

‘Journeyman Loft is a really tip top property. It is cosy, quiet and characterful but with all the mod cons (and more) that make life easy. The proximity to the town is brilliant and the parking space a real bonus.’

‘My husband and I have just had the pleasure of staying at Journeyman Loft for a few days and found it to be completely gorgeous. A cosy, characterful property with a real contemporary twist. The furnishings are of a very good standard and the crockery etc modern and attractive. The shower is something else again. What a treat! It is quiet and yet perfectly located for the town. The parking space a real bonus. We loved it.’

‘Liked the communication and service provided by the owner, and the overall presentation of the property was excellent. The proximity of Journeyman Loft to the bus and train stations, High Street and main routes in and out of town made getting into and out of town really easy. We had a very enjoyable stay.’

‘A nice little place for two. Large comfortable bedroom and bathroom with a nice modern kitchen and newly installed wifi. Centrally located to the town center with off street parking. It's not for someone with mobility problems though because the front entrance has a lot of stairs and a VERY steep and narrow driveway. But all in all I had a very nice stay and I'd stay there again the next time I visit Skipton.’

‘This was one of the best self catering cottages that I have stayed in. On three levels which made it unusual and to my mind more attractive. Less mobile folk might want to know that there is quite a steep gradient up from the town centre plus steps up to the cottage and the internal stairs. Ideally located for walking, touring. Also Ideal for visiting without a car as bus-station, railway station and shops are all just a short walk away. Very friendly and helpful welcome by the caretaker of the cottage.’

‘Great location. Nicely equipped. Clean and comfortable. Split level, so up and down stairs a bit. Really nice to leave car behind and be able to walk out and about - town, canals, moors, woodland, etc. Skipton has some good places to eat, some good shops/market for a self-catering stay, and good public transport.’

‘This is a lovely little cottage ideally situated in the centre of Skipton - it was great to be able to park the car up & walk to all local amenities. Cottage itself was attractively decorated, well supplied with everything you'd need for your stay - really enjoyed the large multi headed walk in shower after a long day out. There is also a really nice log burner to add to the general cosyness.’

‘This flat is certainly conveniently placed in the centre of Skipton but in a a quiet corner. It was small but sufficient for two adults and had been recently refurbished to a very good standard. Access would certainly be a problem for many people. Parking is up a very narrow and steep alley;reversing out was extremely tricky. In addition, the outside stairs were alsoquite steep. We enjoyed our stay but this flat is not for the fainthearted!’
