Everything is here just waiting to be sampled and enjoyed.
Until 1953 Cawder Hall Cottages was incorporated into the Skipton castle estate. It was then sold off to raise vital funds and continued as a working farm.
Each of the cottages at some time have been the home of farm animals.
The Boskin was home for the pigs and the Mistal has housed cows and believe it or not, Reindeer!
Horses in the Stable and hoards of chickens and cockerels, the ducks however took themselves off to the nearby Leeds Liverpool canal.
When the huge task of converting the buildings began it was important to retain their individual characters. Original beams were kept and restored and exposed Yorkshire stone helped in forming the personality of each building.
Directly on our doorstep we have our very own wildlife haven. There is an abundance of rabbits and pheasants. The ‘little owl’ is frequently spotted and if you are really lucky you may just spot ‘Billy’ our local badger. The Swallows return every year and naturally there are sheep and cows in the surrounding fields.
We are very proud of our cottages and view them as an extension of our home. Once our guests have sampled what we have to offer they keep returning year after year and this is the best recommendation that we have.
