Croft Gate Bed & Breakfast
High in the limestone uplands of the Yorkshire Dales National Park lies the little hamlet of Chapel-le-Dale and it is here, nestling in the dale between the peaks of Ingleborough and Whernside, the traveller will find a warm welcome at Croft Gate Bed and Breakfast.
Originally a stone-built shippon and barn, the cottage has many quaint features such as old beams, a large stone fireplace (complete with wood burning stove) and stone window-sills.
The charming village of Ingleton is only 4 miles away and here you can explore the picturesque glens and waterfalls, visit White Scar Caves or stop off for an evening meal.
Travelling towards the market town of Hawes (13 miles), with its Wensleydale Cheese Shop and Creamery (open to the public), you will pass the famous Ribblehead Viaduct on the Settle to Carlisle railway. In 1871 a smallpox epidemic killed many of the navvies working on this incredible feat of engineering and a memorial dedicated to these men can be found in the graveyard of our hamletís Chapel of the Fells.
Further afield, places to visit range from the Lake District, Kendal, the Victorian town of Kirkby Lonsdale, Lancaster and even the sea at Morecambe.
The Shippon is a newly converted ground floor bed and breakfast suite, completely self contained and equipped to make your stay with us as relaxed and stress free as you want it to be.
The accommodation comprises a fully centrally heated and double glazed dining/sitting room and en-suite double bedroom.
Your private living and dining room is cosy and warm, with both central heating and a large stone fireplace with a log burning stove which we will light for you on chillier days. A large, bright room with period features including broad wooden beams and stone lintels, it also provides a relaxing space in which to enjoy your breakfast. We provide free wireless internet access should you wish to stay in contact with the outside world, and a comfortable sofa, flat screen satellite TV, DVD player and iPod speaker dock for when you wish to escape
Leading directly off from your private, cosy living and dining area is an en suite double bedroom, again complete with period features such as the large wooden ceiling beams. The bedroom is equipped with a flat screen TV and a comfortable, quality bed and bed linen.
The fully tiled shower en-suite has all modern comforts, including under floor heating, a heated towel rail, fitted furniture and a large mirror complete with automatic de-mister.
We provide complimentary toiletries and you will also find a hair dryer, local maps and guidebooks all available for your convenience. The living and dining area includes a mini fridge with locally sourced bottled water and fresh milk. A hospitality tray with fair trade tea and coffee is provided and as a little extra we also include a bottle of wine to help you get in the holiday mood.
We also have a first floor double en suite which we do not let separately, but which can be made available with the Shippon for parties of up to four. Please contact us if you would like to find out more.
