We chose Poppy Cottage because of its location - a small farm on the edge of a village, not far from Skipton. Steve and Sally have created a fantastic B&B out of their farmhouse. They are very friendly and helpful hosts - even offering the use of their personal laundry. Poppy Cottage has a very pleasant guest lounge, plus guests...
