Poppy Cottage Guest House is a family run B&B, situated in the village of Carleton-in-Craven, just 2 miles from the bustling market town of Skipton, Gateway to the Yorkshire Dales. Within comfortable, level walking distance of the town and all its amenities, yet located in a beautiful rural setting with stunning views of the hills and countryside.
Poppy Cottage, is the original farm cottage to Ivy Cottage Farm, making a traditional 'Dales Longhouse' and is believed to date back to the late 16th Century. The cottage which is internally linked to the main house, has its own private entrance, stairs, guest lounge and dining room and private decked south facing gardens, along with ample private parking for four cars. Guests will enjoy the privacy of the cottage yet benefit from the service provided by their hosts, Steve and Sally and sons Jordan & Ben. In particular the 'Hearty' Yorkshire breakfast, served using bacon and sausage from their outdoor reared pigs, eggs from the hens and ducks which roam freely, all served in what was the original farm kitchen.
Ivy Cottage Farm is no longer a working farm, more of a small holding where you can watch the hens and ducks happily going about their business with wonderful open countryside to the rear and the delightful 'attached' Poppy Cottage. Lovingly restored, with many original features still intact, all typical of a traditional Dales farmhouse.
..this family run Guest House offers that 'little bit extra' and is certainly a place to remember.
Building works update: The new extension, to the side of Poppy Cottage, is nearing completion with the internal work now well underway. There is still work to be done with the landscaping of the garden and views of the building work can be seen from the Sunflower and Primrose bedroom windows. The views of the hills and countryside are not affected! The decking area is now in full use, all we need now is for the sun to shine.
We anticipate that all work will be completed by the end of May. Our apologies

And finally, in case you're interested, some history..
Ivy Cottage Farm was a working farm up until the late 1970's when the land was sold off and it became a private residence. The farm cottage (now known as Poppy Cottage) with attached barn - a traditional Dales longhouse, is believed to date back as far as the late 16th century. The attached barn was converted in the early 1990's to link to the cottage forming one long house.
