About Craven Cottage

Craven Cottage is a beautiful listed character holiday cottage that sleeps four to six guests. It is located in the Wharfedale village of Appletreewick, one of the Yorkshire Dales' most picturesque villages. The cottage has historic links to Sir William Craven (Dick Whittington) and is an ideal place for those who enjoy outdoor activities or who want to explore the Yorkshire Dales and its many attractions.

The River Wharfe is a short stroll from Craven Cottage (one field away!) and there are two pubs serving food and a beautiful church in the village. The surrounding landscape is picturesque and offers a vast array of opportunities for walkers and cyclists. Discover the Dales Way right from the front door which takes you on a journey alongside the River Wharfe, or explore the picturesque 'Valley of Desolation' and take in Simon's Seat and Troller’s Gill along the way. Strid Wood with its ancient oaks on the Bolton Abbey Estate is also worth a visit.

Situated between the vibrant market town of Skipton (eight miles) and the pretty Wharfedale village of Grassington (five miles), the cottage makes an ideal base from which to explore the Yorkshire Dales National Park. From here you can try pot holing, rock climbing, fishing, ride on a hot-air balloon or enjoy pony trekking.

There are also lots of great days out and places to visit including National Trust country houses with spectacular gardens to wander around. and pretty Yorkshire villages to visit including Burnsall, Hebden and Linton. The nearest small town is Grassington with a good selection of restaurants, shops and a monthly farmers' market. Skipton has four markets per week and sits on the Leeds-Liverpool canal where you can enjoy a trip on a narrow boat. Ilkley (ten miles) has a wealth of restaurants and great shops and is within easy driving distance.
