The Perfect Getaway

The Canal Cottage is the Perfect Cottage Getaway in Yorkshire Dales, in a tranquil spot along the Leeds-Liverpool Canal.

The Cottage is a comfortable, creatively designed and imaginatively furnished property in a tranquil spot on the Canal where you can watch canal boats going past your window. It is extremely well-equipped for self-catering yet close to a number of good pubs and restaurants. The property is located at the gateway to the Yorkshire Dales so provides an ideal base for a range of outdoor activities, but is also great for less active breaks, with its picturesque location, luxury bathroom, 2 SMART TVs and good internet access.

Canal cottage is dog friendly. We welcome up to 2 dogs per stay of any breed or size.

Enquiries about the cottage can be made via this website. Currently, bookings are taken directly via Airbnb. The link to the Airbnb listing is included in this website. We offer a flexible cancellation policy which guarantees a full refund up to 1 day before the start of your break.

Why Visit The Canal Cottage

This area is perfect for walks along the canal towpath and on local moorland, with views across the Aire Valley. It is also an ideal  base from which to explore the Yorkshire  Dales and  Yorkshire’s ‘Bronte Country’. The locality is great for dog walking and there are some local dog friendly pubs. For those wishing to fully experience the canal, a number of local boat houses hire out day boats or organise skippered boat trips. The towpath between the cottage and Skipton has recently been upgraded to make it an excellent cycling route too.

Inside the cottage there is lots of information about things to do with walking maps of the local area too. Some of the most popular local attractions include the preserved Keighley and Worth Valley Railway, with restored steam trains, the viillage of Haworth with the Bronte Parsonage museum and many quaint shops and the market town of Skipton with its regular street market and many cafes, pubs and tea rooms. Less than an hour away is the city of Leeds and the town of Harrogate with its high end shops and historic spa.
Guests are more than welcome to contact us in advance of their stay to discuss specific interests and seek advice and information to plan their itineries.

our Cottage Reviews

Dog friendly accommodation for 2 + 1 + an infant 

Canal Cottage sleeps two people in the double bedroom (kingsize bed) plus a further one on the mezzanine in the single day bed. We can also accommodate one infant in a travel cot in the bedroom. You can bring up to two dogs with you; we have a medium-sized dog bed, dog bowls and towels etc. We can provide a large dog bed if it’s requested in advance.

Due to the mezzanine balcony and the proximity to the canal, we regret that we are unable to accommodate children from 2 to 12 years, only an infant under 2 or teenagers.

Canal Cottage is ideally situated for guests wishing to meet up with friends or family staying in canal boats, as they will be able to moor close to the cottage. Also, if you are travelling in a larger group and wish to have extra space, there are other holiday cottages very close to us. If you contact us, we can forward you details so you can book additional accommodation.
