Award-winning Street Head Farm is a traditional 18th Century Yorkshire Dales Farmhouse Cottage set in acres of open farmland with spectacular views. Spacious accommodation sleeps up to 10 guests and is situated on our working dairy and sheep farm, several fields away from the farmstead, and approached by a separate road. Visitors are welcome to explore our farmland (lambing starts at the end of March and the cows are milked twice a day). Miles of footpaths and bridleways run across the park and the Pennine Way National Trail passes close by, making the property ideal for walkers.
Street Head Farm is an award-winning farmhouse cottage, named the Yorkshire Tourist Board's 'Self-catering Holiday of the Year'. We're also top-rated on Tripadvisor.
There is ample parking space available and the courtyard area to the rear of the house is a safe area for children's play. Garden furniture and a barbecue are both provided and the rural views are amazing.
Small crofts and fields surround the property and guests are welcome to use this wider area for games such as football or cricket.
Well behaved dogs are welcome by prior arrangement and grazing for horses is available onsite. We also have secure storage space for bicycles if required.
Doorways are wide and suitable for the disabled. The downstairs bedroom, shower room and smaller sitting room form an ideal ‘suite’ for those who cannot manage stairs or wish to retire early. It is also an ideal quiet nursery area.
Please let us know if you are celebrating and we will do all we can to advise you of places to eat, catering services and suppliers of balloons and flowers.
All bed linen and towels are supplied, and fuel is included in the booking price.
Short breaks, midweek and weekend, are available and the cottage is open all year round.
The farmhouse sits on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales National Park surrounded by superb walking country. The market town of Skipton with its award-winning markets, great inns and famous medieval castle is only 5 miles away.
Leeds, Bradford, York, Harrogate, the Keighley and Worth Valley Railway, Bolton Abbey and the Settle-Carlisle Railway are all within easy reach. The property is also conveniently close to Leeds Bradford Airport.
From the south, travelling north on the A1 or the M1, take the M62 West, onto the M606 heading towards Bradford.
When you reach the end of the M606 follow the ring road signs for Keighley and Skipton, then the A650 to Keighley. After passing Keighley, continue on the A629 heading towards Skipton. At the Kildwick roundabout take the second exit heading up a road with speed ramps into Cross Hills. Take a right, then continue through Cross Hills on the Colne Road.
When you have passed 2 pelican crossings take a right at the Police Station, heading towards Lothersdale. Stay on this road for around 2 miles. When you reach the crossroads, take a left to Lothersdale, then right to Cononley, and then straight ahead to Elslack.
Carry on up the hill and you will see Tow Top - the first farm on the right hand side after a sharp bend. Note a small, fenced-off garden at the top of the drive.
From the M6/ M65 - follow signs for Keighley, and take the Colne - Keighley Road (A6068) to Glusburn and Cross Hills. Shortly after you pass the mill and school to your right, take a left at the police station and head towards Lothersdale - then follow directions as above. Street Head is 3 gateways on the right up the road from Tow Top - the metal gate is often open.
From Skipton - follow signs for Carleton in Craven, and once in Carleton take the narrow road just opposite The Swan - there is a 3-storey building on the corner.
Continue along this road, up the hill to a T-junction at the top of the road. Take a left, and continue for around 3/4 mile. Tow Top is on your left with a small fenced-off roadside garden.
For guests arriving a little later - Street Head is the second gateway on the left just after the T junction. Drive through the field, and the property is immediately in front of you overlooking the valley.
