in need of full refurb, very old and tired.
location great, have stayed there before about 7 years ago, don't think any thing has been done to the property since it was turned into a rental. the bathrooms not good, patched up with silicone everywhere, the towels as old has the house, same with the decor, the bedding, all old and well worn. sleeps 10, but if 10 want to sit in lounge together, all squeezed together on 3 settees. would not go back until we know it has been all updated.

Fabulous affordable holiday cottage..
A group of 10 of us stayed here. Lovely scenic surroundings. 2 mile walk into Skipton. Two local pubs. Very friendly. Local steam train to Bolton Abbey took you back in time. Lots around to see. Fab accommodation had everything we needed. Roomy throughout. Better than the advertised pictures. Spotless and nicely decorated. All beds were comfy. Showers and bath were newly fitted. Well equipped kitchen for our group cooking our own meals. 3 draw freezer. Large tall fridge. Dish washer and washer/dryer. Lots of pots and pans. T.towels. Etc. Take your own towels and hair dryer. Home from home. Bbq outside and decked area with table and chairs. Highly recommended for family or group. Loved it. Would go again.😇 thanks to the owners for a fab affordable holiday cottage. Angie.

Excellent Accommodation
Stayed with a large group of friends, and thoroughly enjoyed it. The cottage has everything you'd need, excellently equipped, great views and a lovely location in a very pretty village just a couple of miles from Skipton. Great communal living room, spacious rooms, well equipped kitchen, nice touches like games and books to read, massive telly if needed. Wooden floors can be cold on the feet so take slippers and don't stroke the ginger cat as it bites, but otherwise a perfect place to stay. We will be returning I am sure.

lovely house pity about the letting agents
The house was great. The owners had left us tea bags, milk etc. There was things like tinfoil, extra blankets, soap, leaflets for local activities. The owners were also very quiet and unobtrusive. There is a large kitchen and several bedrooms (one room has bunk beds and 2 have a double bed and a single bed so if you have the total 12 people staying it could result in some interesting sleeping arrangements). the living room is also huge but not enough setting for 12 people to all watch the TV at the same time without having to sit on the floor. Realistically I would recommend this house for a group of 8 adults or 2/3 couples with several children (depending on age and number of children). The village and surrounding area is amazing, Bolton Abbey, Skipton the dales is all lovely. The village has 2 pubs which serve food and the locals are friendly. I would commend the house and the area. However I would not recommend Skyes cottages. One of our party suffered a bereavement shortly before the arrival and we were faced with the choice of cancelling and risking the insurance not paying up (I didn't really feel I could ask my friend for a copy of her mothers death certificate either a few days after she had died unexpectedly) or going with a much smaller party. We did not want to risk losing the whole £600 so some of us went. This was disappointing, it would have been much better if we could have changed the dates or amended it to a smaller house but they were very unhelpful. Frankly I got the impression once they had your money they didn't care about being helpful. I would not use them again and will certainly pass the word around my friends and family to stay clear.

A spacious, comfortable house in a great location.
Laurel Bank is more like a big house than a cottage; plenty of room, well equipped and convenient for the Dales, Skipton and a very good pub just up the hill. The owner was friendly and kindly lent us some towels when we found we'd forgotten to bring our own.

Spacious Family accommodation, quiet village location
We, a Family party of 2 young grandchildren, 2 parents, and 4 grandparents, stayed at Laurel Bank Cottage in February 2013. The room sizes were well above average, the kitchen/diner could sit 12 comfortably, as could the lounge. The bedrooms were very spacious. Some outside space for the 2 young children was very welcome. The views around, from all windows, were spectacular. A moderate half-hour walk to Skipton, through the woods, was enjoyed by all. Super Family accommodation.

Pleasant
On the whole we were very comfortable and enjoyed our stay inspite of the poor weather. It had been very wet up to then and the downstairs bedrooms were unfortunately a bit damp as a result. However it was the poor wi fi reception that was the biggest disappointment for several of our party - a minor problem for most people on holiday you'd think! The location was great and given transport, there was plenty to see and do. We had a dog and had no problems at all with that.

Lovely stay.
Spent a weekend at Laurel Bank cottage, although we were only there in the evenings so didn't really see it in daylight!. Accomodation and facilities were excellent for our group of nine. Plenty of comfy sofas and chairs in the very spacious lounge and very cosy with the fire on. Enough room to park five large vehicles. Owners very pleasant and accomadating particularly with our dogs.

A family gathering in Yorkshire
The location is excellent, with a post office/general store and two nearby pubs. The lounge, bedrooms and kitchen/dining room are spacious with adequate heating when required. The showers are OK, albeit a little cramped, and the water was hot when needed. There is sufficient cutlery, crockery and cooking utensils, and the kitchen appliances are very good. There were minor niggles during our stay, e.g. kitchen cold water tap was very difficult to turn off, and there were no towel rails alongside the bedroom washbasins. Overall, our stay was very good.
