Why is Skipton the perfect place for a staycation?

Short breaks and holidays at the Rendezvous Hotel in Yorkshire

Why is Skipton the perfect place for a staycation? Our answer to that is: why not? With lots to do for the whole family and with a fantastic location on the edge of the beautiful Yorkshire Dales National Park, Skipton and surrounding areas make a wonderful destination for either a short break or longer staycation.

Whilst there are lots of lovely places to visit in Yorkshire – it is the largest county in England, after all – we think Skipton and the Yorkshire Dales are particularly special. We know we’re biased by with so much to do and see, our corner of Yorkshire is well worth a visit, whether you’re 9 or 99!

Our Yorkshire hotel is located on the edge of Skipton in a picturesque location on the banks of the Skipton Canal. We pride ourselves on the warm, friendly Yorkshire welcome we offer all of our guests and by staying with us, you’ll be able to relax, unwind and make the most of all this beautiful part of the world has to offer.

Skipton town centre has something for everyone; from fantastic shops (Skipton has previously won the coveted ‘High Street of the Year award, beating Kensington High Street and Portobello Road in London), cafes and restaurants, through to cobbled alleyways, canal side walks and boat trips, and the town’s stunning medieval castle.

If you’d like to explore a little further afield, the beautiful countryside of the Yorkshire Dales National Park is right on our doorstep. Skipton is often referred to as the ‘Gateway to the Dales’ and with hundreds of miles of breathtaking scenery just a short drive or bus trip away, it’s not hard to see why. Featuring atmospheric moorland, rolling countryside criss-crossed by dry stone walls and lush river valleys, a visit to the Yorkshire Dales is a must.
