This spacious terraced cottage will comfortably accommodate up to five guests with two bedrooms, and an additional room on the first floor with a futon-style sofa bed that can either be used as an additional living/reading room or as an additional sleeping space for the fifth person. The ground floor living area has dividing doors between the living room and kitchen, so the two rooms can either be separated or kept open-plan, making the space lovely and bright. Outside there is a small, enclosed, rear yard and garden which backs on to the brook, ideal for your four-legged friend.
Kelbrook, which was historically part of the West Riding of Yorkshire, is just 9 miles from Skipton, making this a great base from which to explore the Yorkshire Dales.

A wider range of amenities can be found in Earby, 1½ miles away, Barnoldswick is 2½ miles or a little further Colne is 4 miles away.
