Hello, I hope you are well. Restrictions on travel and holidays are easing but the safety of our guests is still of paramount importance to us and we will do everything possible to ensure your well being during your stay with us. The property is always scrupulously cleaned between bookings as are all appliances, utensils and linens. The property has its own front door, a separate, fully fenced garden and its own, dedicated parking space next to the entrance. Guests can be assured that they will be able to check in and enjoy their stay without making any face to face contact if required.

Fernside Cottage is ideally situated for anyone wishing to spend time away from crowds and busy public places. From its “off the beaten track” location guests can easily reach on foot The Pendle Way, The Pennine Way and numerous other footpaths. The surrounding countryside is rich in birdlife, breath-taking scenery and history. Many cyclists enjoy the area too.

Of course, most of the shows and festivals planned for this year have been cancelled but many pubs and restaurants are now re-opening or supplying their menus for outdoor eating, delivery or take away. You may find this website useful for up to date information on the opening of local businesses and attractions including pubs and restaurants. https://www.tripadvisor.co.uk/Tourism-g209940-Skipton_North_Yorkshire_England-Vacations.html

We had one of the best holidays of our lives whilst staying at Fernside Cottage. The cottage itself was perfect, it was very clean, high quality, beautifully decorated and had all the gadgets you could need (including 3 TV’s!). We were greeted with fresh flowers, fruit and free range eggs as a little extra by the lovely owners. Pauline (the owner) was there for any problems should we need her for anything yet allowed us the peaceful holiday we desired. The parking was ample and the views were AMAZING.

Moving on to local activities. There was so much to do- we have booked in again for next year in order to finish our ‘to do’ list. We visited Skipton Castle, Malham Cove, Malham Tarn, Went on a canal trip, walked parts of the penine way, had lunch at the local pubs and so much more. All in all a great place to explore the dales from and to recharge your batteries.
