Set on a working farm close to the fabulous market town of Skipton, couples or families will be perfectly placed for exploring.

This stone built, Grade II listed, semi-detached holiday cottage is set on the owners’ working farm in the small north Yorkshire hamlet of Ickornshaw. With exposed stone walls, oak beams, mullioned windows and a wood burner, the cottage is traditional in every respect, as well as warm, comfortable and cosy. Set near the Yorkshire/Lancashire border and surrounded by beautiful countryside, this wonderful location is perfect for outdoor enthusiasts with the Pennine Way footpath running right past the farm. In an area steeped with history, a short walk will take you to the old village of Cowling, where the local pub dates back to 1812, and the nearby Quaker village of Lothersdale was once home to Charlotte Brontë.
Just 20 minutes away is the attractive market town of Skipton, once voted the best shopping spot in Britain, and otherwise known as the ’Gateway to the Yorkshire Dales’ and beyond. The wonderful cobbled high street of Haworth is also just 20 minutes, and home to the Brontë Parsonage Museum and the Worth Valley Steam Railway, recognizable from its prominence in the classic film ’The Railway Children’. The large retail outlet of Boundary Mill can be reached in around 15 minutes, and Grassington, Malham and Bolton Abbey estate are all also within easy reach. Fishing available nearby. Shop, pub and restaurant ½ mile.

    A fantastic cottage with welcoming owners, welcome hamper a nice touch. Although semi-detached and a working farm very quiet and nothing too much trouble. 6 year old loved the garden exploring in it. Quaint local pub and restaurant within easy walking distance. Looking forward to returning.

    The warm and generous welcome which included a basket of goodies, Birthday cake & card was a really nice start to our break. The cottage is superbly finished and was equipped with everything we needed. It’s really cosy with the log burner lit and has effective central heating too. The owner was quick to respond to communication and extra logs when we needed them and gave us good advice on local pubs, restaurants and events. Although the cottage is close to the farm house you wouldn’t be aware, it’s very quiet and not overlooked, which includes the garden where you can sit and enjoy the sound of a brook in the distance. Highly recommended.

    Response on behalf of the owner; Wow, what an absolutely incredible review of our cottage with such kind words from yourself. We are extremely grateful that you have taken your time to provide us with this amazing review of our cottage. We aim to provide all of our guests with a warm, welcoming and personal service whilst they are staying with us at Little Grans and from reading your lovely review we feel that we have most definitely achieved this outcome on this occasion. We are happy to hear that you found the cottage to be equipped with everything you needed, as with this being our first year in the holiday rental market every day is a learning curve and we are ever so grateful for the help, advice and honest opinions of each of our lovely guests as we rely on their feedback to let us know if something is not quite right or if the cottage is missing something essential that would make each individual guest's stay that little bit more comfortable, so we find it a real comfort knowing that you found the cottage to be equipped with everything you may have needed during your recent stay with us. We are glad that you made use of the log burning stove during your stay as we too absolutely adore the stove in the lounge and find it helps complement and enhance the traditional characteristics of the room creating the perfect ambiance, especially on these long cold winters’ nights we have had just recently. The lounge truly is the perfect place for guests to settle down and relax in front of the fire with a nice glass of wine or a real ale from one of the many local breweries after a day out exploring the local countryside. We are honoured that you chose Little Grans Cottage for your break away with friends and we are overjoyed to receive such positive scores not only in your overall rating of our cottage but also in regards to the comfort and equipment, location, cleanliness, local amenities and value for money. We truly are ecstatic to receive a score of 10 out of 10 overall from yourself and be told that you would highly recommend us is just wonderful. We hope you had a great birthday and we would be delighted to welcome you all back to the cottage anytime should you so wish.
