{"LocationDetails":{"Id":524,"Name":"Skipton","Description":"\u003ch1\u003eOur guide to Skipton Holiday Cottages\u003c/h1\u003e\r\n\r\n\u003cp\u003eSkipton is a friendly Yorkshire market town that has served its residents and those of the surrounding agricultural area for centuries. Because the town is on the doorstep of the \u003ca href=\"https://www.bluechipholidays.co.uk/yorkshire/yorkshire-dales/the-yorkshire-dales-national-park\"\u003eYorkshire Dales National Park\u003c/a\u003e, it is a convenient holiday base for families, couples, and large parties that love the countryside and its pursuits. We recommend Skipton if you are looking for a short self-catering break in Yorkshire, or for your longer annual holiday away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.\u003c/p\u003e\r\n\r\n\u003cp\u003eJudged as being one of Britain\u0026rsquo;s best places to live, Skipton is large enough to provide all the essential services but small enough to maintain that small-town charm that both locals and visitors love so much. After all, \u0026lsquo;Skipton\u0026rsquo; is Anglo Saxon for \u0026lsquo;Sheep Town\u0026rsquo;, which attests to its old world charm and small village atmosphere.\u003c/p\u003e\r\n\r\n\u003cp\u003eIn fact, Skipton continues to celebrate its sheep heritage to this day. Every summer there is a \u0026nbsp;\u0026lsquo;Sheep Day,\u0026rsquo; a celebration that features an energetic and busy auction mart where farmers from the district and further afield buy and sell their sheep. What was once a major trade event has been transformed into a cultural affair well worth attending just for the experience. Listen out for the extremely strong local accents that in some cases you\u0026rsquo;ll struggle to understand.\u003c/p\u003e\r\n\r\n\u003cp\u003eFondly referred to as the \u0026lsquo;Gateway to the Dales,\u0026rsquo; Skipton is located in the Aire Gap, which separates the northern limestone dales and the grit stone moors to the south. The Lake District, The Forest of Bowland (AONB), Nidderdale (AONB) and the west coast are all within easy driving distance. The Leeds Liverpool Canal runs through the town and traditional canal boats are a common sight.\u003c/p\u003e\r\n\r\n\u003cp\u003eWhile in Skipton, why not make the most of this friendly little town\u0026rsquo;s wide range of activities and attractions? It has a rich history, beautiful surrounding scenery and plenty of pursuits to keep you occupied. If you like a round of golf, the scenic Skipton Golf Club course is nearby. For sightseeing, visit the medieval Skipton Castle or Bolton Abbey, and then enjoy the Forbidden Corner at Middleham \u0026ndash; billed as \u0026ldquo;The Strangest Place in the World\u0026rdquo; \u0026ndash; the kids will love it. Alternatively, take a trip to impressive Malham Cove and view the limestone pavements.\u003c/p\u003e\r\n\r\n\u003cp\u003eWith the Yorkshire Dales practically in your back garden, you can appreciate the great outdoors by walking, cycling, fishing, horse riding, or simply enjoying a scenic country drive. If you prefer to stay local, the town has a busy market four times a week along it\u0026rsquo;s buzzing high street, plenty of fine shops, pubs, and a variety of places to enjoy a good meal. The local fish and chips are particularly recommended, be sure to eat at Bizzie Lizzies.\u003c/p\u003e\r\n\r\n\u003cp\u003eIf you love art and culture, we suggest that you visit some of the nearby galleries and museums during your holiday in Skipton. The Craven Museum and Gallery, and the Bronte Parsonage Museum in Keighley are certainly not to be missed.\u003c/p\u003e\r\n\r\n\u003cp\u003eYou can probably tell that we\u0026rsquo;re passionate about Skipton for a self-catering break in Yorkshire, and we offer holiday cottages, lodges and apartments are available in the area providing stunning 4 and 5-star luxury.\u003c/p\u003e\r\n\r\n\u003cp\u003eThis market town has much to offer, providing great holidays every year in an area of natural beauty with all the required amenities and friendly locals. Getting there is simple: the town has good road and rail links and is just 16 miles from Leeds Bradford Airport. Why not come and try the Skipton experience.\u003c/p\u003e\r\n","Alias":"skipton","MainImageLocation":"https://assets.bluechipholidays.co.uk/media/catalogs/public/downloads/preview/custom_carousel/users/emily.judge/2018/11/Skipton .jpg/carousel.jpg","PointOfInterests":[{"AdditionalImages":[],"Id":0,"Title":"Skipton Castle","Body":"\u003cp\u003eNine hundred years may have rolled by since Skipton Castle was first built to provide protection against invasion, but little about the building has actually changed.

The follies and statues that dot the gardens make this attraction delightfully curious, and you\u0026rsquo;ll be able to while away hours following paths that don\u0026rsquo;t actually lead to anywhere and stumbling upon everything from glass pyramids to the temple of the underworld.\u003c/p\u003e\r\n\u003cp\u003eOne of the best parts of The Forbidden Corner is that it\u0026rsquo;ll get you thinking.
