Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. Excellent accommodation of an exceptionally high standard near to many facilities and places of interest. Owners very helpful as well. Sept 2012.
  2. The property is very well situated with just a 10minute walk into town where there are numerous places to eat. The cottage was very well equipped with all the furniture and fittings of a very high standard especially the bed which was superb. There are so many lovely walks and places to visit from Skipton so Blue Buttons is in an ideal spot. I can certainly recommend this property. Sept 2012.
  3. Beautifully presented cottage, with luxurious attention to detail, such as the massive fridge freezer which dispensed ice. The owners have thought of everything to make your stay enjoyable, including ringing up before the visit to ask which kind of wine you like. We went with our 10 month son, and the owners very kindly offered a buggy for us to use so we didn’t have to take ours, and even found a stair gate on the day of arrival which was very thoughtful. The owners were lovely and friendly, with an exceptional level of hospitality. The cottage is only a short walk from town so we were able to catch the train into Leeds one day and do a spot of shopping, and on another day we pottered along the canal dropping into the odd pub. We found Skipton the perfect location for day trips into the Dales, and catching up with friends nearer Leeds. One of the highlights was the hot tub in the bathroom, this was great to unwind in after a long day walking in the dales. Will certainly be recommending to our friends. Aug 2012.
  4. Great comfort and well equipped, the owners make you feel welcome. Aug 2012.
  5. It was a fantastic cottage - best cottage I ever stayed at. The owners were incredibly helpful, and you wanted for nothing. I would actually score the cottage 100 out of 10! July 2012.
  6. Blue Buttons is a beautiful property, very well situated for Skipton and the Yorkshire Dales. We were impressed by the exceptionally high standards of the fittings and decor, especially the kitchen and bathroom. The bed was spacious with quality bed linen ensuring a good night’s sleep. The owners, Sharon and Boyd, who live a few doors away were very welcoming and always at hand should help be required. All in all, an excellent holiday. July 2012.
  7. Excellent accommodation with all needs catered for. Owners were very thoughtful. May 2012.
  8. The property provided my wife and I with the perfect week away, comfortable and yet modern with everything we needed - not always an easy combination to achieve. The bathroom was luxurious and the bed amongst the most comfortable I have ever slept on. The greatest compliment I can pay the property was trying to book a few more days on the Friday before leaving but sadly someone else had beaten me to it. March 2012.
  9. This accommodation is superb. Facilities are excellent. Nicely situated close to town. Easy walk through park to town centre via canal. Two supermarkets nearby. Worth investing £1 for town map at tourist office in town hall. Plenty of Pubs Restaurants and shops in town. Take a trip to Fountains Abbey on a fine day or to Boundary Mill in Colne if wet. March 2012.
  10. Blue Buttons was 5 star holiday accommodation, and we would happily recommend it to everyone. As soon as we returned from our holiday we booked to go back again in the Spring. It was absolutely fantastic! Oct 2011.
  11. A beautiful cottage with excellent facilities. A quick phone call when we arrived at the location, and someone was there to show us how everything worked. We were provided with tea coffee sugar and milk. Also a bottle of wine, cheese, crackers and chocolate. Very thoughtful. Only one negative. Perhaps another small armchair could be provided for the sitting area, as a second person has to sit some distance from the tv. Oct 2011.
  12. Nothing was spared in the quality of furnishings, fittings and products and plenty of parking. A very quiet location but 10 to 15 minutes walk to Skipton centre. Would recommend Le Bistro in Skipton as a good place to eat. Sept 2011.
  13. Blue Buttons has amazing comfort and style. It is a lovely cottage close to town yet in it’s own grounds. We hope to go back again some time soon. The owners Boyd and Sharon are very welcoming. Blue Buttons has everything anyone could need on holiday plus more! A true home from home. Skipton is a wonderful little town with so much to do. Aug 2011.
  14. The cottage is fitted out to a really high standard - it definitely deserves it’s five star rating. We stayed in August, but I’d imagine that it would be really cosy in the winter with the log-burning stove, the spa bath and the huge bed! The owners were also really friendly and welcoming - with cheese and wine waiting for us on arrival. I’d definitely recommend this property - it was an ideal base for exploring the Yorkshire Dales, with lots of good walking and pretty villages nearby. Aug 2011.
  15. The cottage was amazing, very modern and clean. It is certainly 5* accommodation. The owners were very friendly and helpful. This is the best cottage we have stayed in by far. June 2011.
  16. A lovely cottage, and great people, thank you very much. June 2011.
  17. The house was furnished and maintained to the very highest standard, and the hosts were welcoming and helpful. It’s a 10 minute walk from the centre of Skipton so handy for all facilities. May 2011.
  18. Very friendly and helpful owners made us feel truly welcome. April 2011.
  19. A really super cottage, could not ask for more. March 2011.
  20. Wonderful accommodation, better than 4 star hotel. Clean warm and a gift of wine and cheese. Everything supplied, nothing was forgotten. Nov 2010.
