Skipton, Yorkshire Dales

We arrived at Throstle Nest Farm near Skipton in the Yorkshire Dales at 4pm after a long journey from Crieff

The Bed & Breakfast

The accommodation was a large modern farmhouse with fabulous views of the dales.

What a picture of beauty with all the farm animals scattered over the hills and a train line running through.

We booked room 3 (cheaper), which looked out onto the garden rather than the hills.

Our room was lovely and cosy and their was even a slice of homemade cake awaiting us.

We went to Skipton in the evening and ended in a pub called The Woolly Sheep, the food was lovely.

After a good nights sleep we went downstairs for a farmhouse cooked breakfast whilst overlooking the hills through a huge modern window.

The farmhouse is beautifully decorated, reminded me of something pictured in one of the home magazines.

Haworth Village

Visited Haworth Village which mainly consisted of a cobbled street on a hill with a traditional feel to it. 

It had a sweet shop, an apothecary, a traditional red postbox and phone box, it was like the street from the hovis advert (80’s tv advert).

There are lots of lovely gift shops, my favourite was the apothecary. It was called Rose & Co, they sold lots of traditional products … heaven.

We headed back into Skipton in the afternoon for a bit of shopping and to visit Skipton Castle.

A stone castle with manicured lawns and lots of history.

Sat and had an ice cream as the weather was hot … in October!
