For the Grown Ups

Eden House is a couple of miles outside Skipton, a friendly market town on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales.

The market in Skipton dates back to medieval times, when a royal charter granted consent to ‘The Lord of the Honour of Skipton Castle’ to hold a fair on Skipton High Street. It’s famous for freshly picked fruit and vegetables and freshly baked bread. Voted the Best Market and Day out in Yorkshire.

When you fancy a break, drop in on The Bull at Broughton. One of Yorkshire’s top gastro-pubs, with a great range of real ale.
