Hotel Description

Poppy Cottage No 1 Poppy Cottage No. 2, are two 'luxury' self-catering cottages, set in the lovely village of Carleton-in-Craven, on the outskirts of Skipton. Each cottage can be booked individually, or for large groups of up to 7, can be booked together with the internal doors allowing everyone to move freely between the cottages. On its own, Poppy No. 1, has one-bedroom, sleeping 2 people and has the fabulous hot-tub with gazebo, set in stunning south facing gardens and Poppy No.2 has two bedrooms and is ideal for small families or groups of up to 5. Both cottages have been fully re-furbished in the last 2 years and can be booked for short stays of min of 3 nights. With private parking for two cars each in the private courtyard to the front. Set in the village of Carleton, just 2 miles from the historic market town of Skipton, Poppy Cottages are attached to our home at Ivy Cottage Farm, a traditional 'Dales Longhouse' believed to date back to late 16th Century. Sadly no longer a working farm but still blessed with open views of the countryside and animals grazing along with our own chickens who supply us daily with fresh free range eggs. Sit and admire the views from our garden whilst watching the chickens wandering freely. Carleton has a village pub serving evening meals 7 days a week, village store is and with routes from the village taking you on up into the stunning Yorkshire Dales, making Poppy Cottages the ideal base for those who want to escape the hustle and bustle of the town. Regular buses run in and out of the village from Skipton (Monday - Friday only). Short breaks of 3 or 4 nights are available, along with full week stays and we are on hand to sort out any little problems you may have during your stay. We look forward to hearing from you. Steve and Sally Hall

Perfect Poppy
We had a brilliant week's stay - not only was the weather perfect, but the cottage was just superb. Everything you could want - we couldn't think of a single thing we would change. The hot tub was great, we used it every day. The village is lovely and also close to Skipton not to mention all the walks close by. Would definitely stay again - can't wait to return.

The Perfect Cottage....
We stayed at Poppy Cottage number 1 for a week in March. It is quite simply perfect!! A beautiful cottage, well equipped and ideally located. It has a log burner which kept us lovely and warm in the snow, and an equally gorgeous hot tub to relax in at the end of the day. I can’t recommend highly enough, we simply loved it.

A Romantic Getaway
We have just returned from a week in Poppy Cottage number 1 celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary and we couldn't have picked a better cottage to stay in. Sally and Steve have provided a beautiful, well equipped cottage in a peaceful village. They have thought of everything that you might need to make your stay perfect (even providing tea, coffee, fresh milk and breakfast cereals) so from the moment you arrive you feel at home.

We will miss waking up to the fantastic views from the bedroom and relaxing in the hot tub after walking in the Yorkshire Dales.

The village itself is quiet and perfectly located so you can head into Skipton for a bit of shopping or a walk along the river or if you want to venture further into the Dales.

If you do choose to stay in Poppy Cottage we would recommend that you take the short stroll to The Swan Inn for a drink or for dinner, the food was great and you are made to feel welcome.

We would definitely recommend and will book again if we come back to Yorkshire.

Fabulous Weekend Away In Lovely Cottage
Spent 3 nights celebrating our wedding anniversary. Poppy Cottage was very comfortable and welcoming. Great location in village close to Skipton. The hot tub was a nice extra and great for resting tired feet after days out around the area. Loads of room for 2 and all amenities for self catering. Nice touch of cereals and milk in the fridge lefts for breakfasts. Can highly recommend it to others wanting a break in this part of North Yorkshire.

5 Stars For Poppy Cottage
We thoroughly enjoyed our few days at Poppy Cottage. As a vegetarian my wife's were met with a delicious cooked breakfast each morning - I really enjoyed the home reared bacon too needs. The view from our room window was lovely and the chickens added an extra delight to our stay. Steve and Sally made us feel welcome from the moment we arrived. We were shown a cosy guest sitting room and breakfast room and offered a cup of tea. Our room was lovely, with a big comfy bed, hot shower and views out to the garden. The garden was perfect to relax in at the end of the day; filled with pretty flowers and great views across the landscape. We will definitely be going back and would highly recommend Poppy Cottage if you want a relaxing stay in a beautiful location with generous hosts who clearly care about what they do.

Five Star's
It was my wife who choose Poppy Cottage for our short break, and like many when you are on the way there, it does cross you mind what the quality of the accommodation going to be .

On arriving at Poppy Cottage we received a really warm welcome, we were given what we felt like was a v.i.p tour of the cottage and the grounds. The room which looked out on to the rear of the cottage, was immaculately clean.. Clean bedding, and the room was bright and cheerful. We had a room with an en-suite shower room, equally as clean as the bedroom.. an a easy to operate shower.



If you have forgotten your hair dryer or shower cap – don’t worry.. The rooms have had a lot of thought put in to them. Fresh towels, hair dryer, shower cap, bath robes, T.V and a wardrobe (with coat hangers) with more than enough space for all you clothes. Choice of coffee and teas and some biscuits in the room and not forgetting the kettle. There was not a fridge in the room, but you had the use of the fridge in the dining room, which we found no problem with.

There is a ground floor lounge which we could use, which was ideal if you wanted to sit and chill for a while or read. Where we were offered a hot drink of our choice and not forgetting the biscuits, which we accepted – which was more than welcoming after our long journey.

From the lounge you access the rear garden and decking area – the weather was warm and this would have been a ideal place to sit and take in the sun – But unfortunately we so busy running around shopping we did not get to make use of.

The dining room is lovely, as clean as the other rooms. AND THE BRECKFAST ..But seems I may have forgotten to mention that this lovely couple have chickens in the back garden .. eggs straight from the chicken to your plate.. I am not normally a Breakfast person, but I must admit, that there was a great difference in having such fresh eggs.

Poppy Cottage is equal to a five star HOTEL .. We could not find fault during our stay .

One Word...excellent
I have reviewed Poppy Cottage on Trip Advisor and will only repeat that our stay could not have been better. Steve and Sally are great hosts seeing to all your needs but completely unobtrusive.

The rooms are spotless and the breakfasts are excellent and filling. The best part however is the fact that you are living in a completely separate cottage, albeit that it is attached to Ivy Cottage where the family live,and you have a dining room, guest lounge and garden just for guests. Excellent.

We cannot fault Poppy Cottage and will definitely return when next in the area.

Excellent B & B
We loved this B & B just outside Skiptonn , where we recently stayed for 3 nights. Our room was very comfortable and quiet and, in addition, we had the use of a little sitting room and lovely sunny decking area. We were even able to get a take-away from the local pub and use the dining area to eat.



Our hosts were so friendly, extremely helpful with suggesting walks etc and served us a fantastic breakfast each morning, with so many options.



The location of Poppy Cottage is great - a few minutes drive into Skipton or a 20 minute walk across fields, near to a reasonable pub and giving easy access to wonderful walking country in the Dales. We would definitely recommend it to friends and hope to return ourselves!

Everything at Poppy Cottage is so well thought out, yet without feeling contrived. Beautifully decorated throughout, immaculately clean, as well as wonderful little touches like the exquisite toiletries and miniature hot water bottles (which we didn't need in our unexpected summer weather!)

Another Great Stay
This is the second time we have stayed at the Poppy Cottage and our stay was, once again, faultless - we are already planning our next visit which will hopefully be in early 2014. Sally and Steve run a great guest house - it has got to be in the top ten list of UK guest houses. We cannot recommend it enough!

Wonderful Eggs!
Here again but this time on my own. The welcome was as warm as ever and room immaculate. Delicious sausages from Steve and Sally's own pigs and the darkest yolked eggs I have ever eaten. Thank you both. We will be back.

Very Happy
We had a great 3 nights at Poppy Cottage whilst attending an event down the road. It is very well presented, the owners cook great breakfasts, the rooms are exceptionally clean and there is a lot of useful information (leaflets etc) to hand, plus the owners are friendly and can offer good advice. Definitely one of the best B&Bs we've stayed in - would go back if we go to the Skipton area again.

Well Pleased!
We were en-route, so only booked the one night, but were well pleased to have found such a clean, comfortable, welcoming place with such good facilities to 'bed and breakfast'! Steve and Sally were charming and pointed us in the right direction towards the local pub which serves fabulous steaks - well worth a visit in its own right.

Altogether, a faultless stop - and we'll stay longer next time.

Thankyou for taking the time to leave a reveiw, we very much appreciate your comments. So glad you enjoyed your stay here. Sally & Steve

Delightful
Poppy Cottage Guest House certainly lived up to our expectations. We were really looking forward to staying here and we weren't disappointed. Our room was charming with views out over the little farm; it was spotlessly clean, and everything was provided to make us feel right at home. There was a very comfortable lounge to relax in if we needed to, and the dining room created a lovely environment in which to enjoy one of the most delicious breakfasts (cooked by Steve), that we had on our entire trip. We have no hesitation in recommending Poppy Cottage.

Perfect Poppies
Very friendly welcome with tea and biscuits; beautiful room with splendid shower and all the necessary additions; great view of the hens and pigs; very satisfying locally sourced breakfast with lots of choice. Poppy Cottage is in a great location with easy access to Skipton and further afield. We recommend it absolutely.

Best Guest House
Just returned following our third visit to Poppy Cottage. This is the best gust house we have stayed in. Accommodation is terrific-clean and private in beautiful setting. Steve and Sally are great hosts -always friendly and helpful and the food is perfect. If we were running a guest house this is what we would want it to be like.

Thankyou John and Pauline for such a lovely review. We really appreciate your comments and taking the time to leave a review. Look forward to seeing you both again. Sally

A Little Piece Of Heaven
Superb B & B and Sally and Steve were excellent hosts. The breakfasts were plentiful and I really enjoyed their free range eggs. The accommodation was superb and very tastefully and sympathetically furnished.Steve and Sally have retained as many existing features as possible and I love their fireplace in the Sunflower Room.Little touches like providing guests with bath robes, tea and biscuit facilities in the bedrooms and a personal Easter card helped make our stay very special. The fridge in the dining room, available to all guests, and free details of local walks were much appreciated. Sally and Steve have photographed their building work, showing the development of Poppy Cottage into the beautiful guesthouse it is now. Can't speak too highly of both Poppy Cottage or Steve and Sally and we look forward to returning again.

Thank you for having us.
