This lovely detached holiday property stands on the very edge of the Yorkshire Dales National Park and overlooks the River Aire. This is a wonderful location for walking direct from the door, with stunning walks at nearby Malham Cove, Gordale Scar, Malham Tarn and Janet’s Foss. The historic market town of Skipton, known as the ‘Gateway to the Dales’, is close at hand, boasting one of England’s best preserved Norman castles, together with a bustling market and a wide selection of shops, pubs and restaurants. In 2008, the Academy of Urbanism voted the high street the best shopping spot in Britain. Nearby Coniston Hall provides a wide selection of country sports such as shooting, fishing and 4x4 driving, together with a restaurant and bar serving meals, which can be accessed on foot across the fields. Alternatively, both the historic city of York and the Lake District make for a change of scenery, or take the train from Skipton to Leeds - which boasts its own Harvey Nichols store and some of the best shopping in the north of England. Shop 3 miles, pub 1½ miles.

    Had a lovely weekend in Mill Lodge with family. Adults and kids loved the house - plenty of room for the 10 of us. Great location for visits to Skipton and Grassington where we enjoyed the Dickensian Christmas market. The house was tastefully decorated including Christmas tree and decorations, and was beautifully clean. The kitchen had everything we needed for cooking a big breakfast and the welcome hamper was a nice touch and much appreciated. We all said we would stay again if back in the area. Thank you for a wonderful stay!

    The cottage is gorgeous, in a beautiful setting, and has all the equipment needed for a very comfortable family holiday. The owner gives very clear directions and instructions for arrival, and popped in to check that all was ok. We were able to contact her prior to our visit with a query about towels and she also provided a lovely welcome pack. All in all we thoroughly enjoyed it and wished we could have stayed longer.

    This is no doubt the best holiday property we have rented. Mill lodge is very clean,well maintained and in a lovely location. It is comfortable with lots of space for families to spread out, which affords privacy when wanted. The welcome pack was most appreciated and the owner Nicola is very helpful. We would definitely return! Thank you

    Mill Lodge has been refurbished to a good standard, doesn't have drafty windows/doors so is easy to keep warm. The open plan layout downstairs works well. The spacious kitchen area is hard flooring which is practical while the living room/dining area is carpeted which keeps it cosy. The bedroom mix of ensuites/ doubles, a twin and a twin/double option is good too. I'd stay there again.
