Street Head Farm
Sleeps 10

Street Head Farm

Taking its name from a little-known Roman road that today crosses open farmland in the Yorkshire Dales, Street Head Farm near the peaceful village of Lothersdale, North Yorkshire, offers comfortable self-catering accommodation for large groups of up to ten guests on holiday in the Craven district.

This large five-bedroom countryside cottage near Skipton has been completely renovated and furnished to a high standard. This 18th-century farmhouse retains its original charm, featuring stone-flagged floors and original beams.

A pet-friendly cottage with an adjoining barn for storage, Street Head Farm includes a sitting room with a log-burning stove and magnificent open views and a smaller sitting room leading to a terrace. A well-equipped kitchen opens onto a large dining room, whilst the master bedroom comes with an en-suite shower room.

The owners live on a nearby working farm and welcome guests to explore the grounds. The nearby village of Lothersdale, nestled in a peaceful valley in the Pennine Hills, sits just five miles from the market town of Skipton.

When booking or sending an enquiry, please tell us that you found this Yorkshire Dales holiday cottage near Skipton on the My Favourite Holiday Cottages website. Thank you.




Fabulous setting,welcome and service

The cottage was fantastic and the welcome we received on arrival was absolutely spot on - informative but not intrusive. Every comfort was provided, and the welcoming home made cake was delicious! I visit Yorkshire two or three times a year and sharing my enjoyment of the area with close friends was made all the more enjoyable by our excellent accomodation.After many years of camping together, we now rest our older bones in greater comfort and Streethead Farm provided the perfect opportunity. Thank you!

Relaxing family holiday with friends

This was the third or fourth cottage booked through Sykes and came up to the previous high standards. Very good sleeping arrangements and well laid out living spaces. Only slight grumble was the lack of a "proper" garden for the kids to run riot in. Maybe a climbing frame or equivalent in one of the nearby spaces would work really well.

Cottage is very well located for walks, towns for provisions, sightseeing etc. Almost too much to do in week - we'll have to go back again!

Fantastic Property in an Idyllic Location

A cottage that we have booked a number of times, Street Head Farm is a warm, comfortable, spacious retreat. The location is fantastic, situated in the Yorkshire Dales with stunning views and close to the market town of Skipton. The house is excellently equipped with every detail thought of and everything catered for. With the owners offering a lovely welcome and happy to show you the workings of their dairy farm, you couldn't ask for a more idyllic holiday.

ExeterMGOC came along to this fabulous place to use as a Base for our week in the dales. Wonderfully equipped house great area, fab house . Cannot fault. Tiptop


Wonderful family break in fantastic country cottage.

This wasn't our first stay at Street Head Farm cottage and it hopefully won't be our last. The owners are friendly and welcoming and we were greeted with homemade fruit loaf and homemade marmalade both of which were superb as well as milk, teabags etc. The cottage is charming with wonderful views and everything you need is provided including a laundry room, a cosy lounge with a log burning stove and large family kitchen / dining room. There is also a further small lounge with its own tv. The cottage is tastefully decorated with a very comfortable, homely feel. It is ideal for dogs and there are many walks available from the doorstep. It really does offer a perfect "get away from it all" being quite isolated and quiet although the busy town of Skipton is only 10 minutes away by car, providing everything you could need. We had a fantastic time and can't wait to return!


Amazing, glorious Yorkshire!

Booked this property for a family get-together. So glad we did. This place is fantastic. Lovely accommodation, full of character and charm. The location can not be beaten - not enough superlatives to describe the views that wrap around this cottage. Loved having the neighbouring cows and being able to just open the front door and let our two dogs run out, with brilliant walks on the doorstep. The owners are really lovely - supplying us with fresh cake and fresh milk along with logs and kindling for the powerful wood burner in the living room. We loved staying here - really comfortable accommodation and homely too. Will definitely be staying here again - and the sooner the better.
