Come to Skipton for the best in shopping. There are 4 independent butchers in Skipton all making award winning Pork Pies and Sausages but we recommend Farmhouse Fayre. Lawsons Cheese stall has a wonderful range of cheeses, local Wensledale is ideal with Christmas Cake and fruit cake, available on line. Two chocolatiers, Walkers and Whittakers and then Copper Dragon Brewery who offer a wide range of gift packs.
We have ample private parking so it's easy to leave the car and explore the area on foot, by bike or local bus.
Take a trip from Skipton station on the famous Settle to Carlisle Railway across the scenic Ribblehead viaduct.
Canal trips are available from the canal basin in the centre of town, and steam train rides from Embsay railway only 2 miles away.
Attractions in the area include the Copper Dragon Brewery which has brewery tours and an excellent cafe, the Wensledale Creamery home of the cheese, Grommit, Gayle Mill, the restored water mill featured in the Restoration programme.
Skipton also hosts many themed events during the year and the surrounding area is well served with restaurants, bars, cafes, theatres, cinema. Fine dining is available at the Bull at Broughton, the Angel at Hetton and the Box Tree at Ilkley. For those who prefer retail therapy Skipton holds a local market 4 days a week and a farmers' market on the first Sunday of each month. Shopping at Boundary Mills and Harrogate are both only a short drive away.
We are also an ideal base for walking in the Dales.
Farmers Market at the Canal Basin every 1st Sunday in the month.
