Welcome to the Shippon holiday cottage at Black Pots Farm

Take time out from the hustle and bustle of the 21st century. Step out of your door high up on the Pennine moors and be greeted by big skies, wide vistas and the evocative calls of sheep and curlew. That’s what the Shippon has to offer.

  • Holiday cottage for two.
  • Peace and relaxation in a rural retreat.
  • Cosy, comfortable and eco-friendly.
  • Stunning views.

Staying at the Shippon, a cottage attached to Black Pots, you look out over the dark and wild gritstone scenery of Bronte Country to the south and stretching away behind you is the vast landscape of the Yorkshire Dales National Park with its limestone scenery and historic monuments. Ideally placed for walking and cycling holidays.

For over 400 years Black Pots has seen many incarnations. It started its rich local history being a remote drovers inn where cattle were corralled overnight during their long trek south from Scotland. Later it became a grouse shooting lodge as part of the Skipton Castle estate as well as being a 250 acre Pennine hill farm. It’s now a base for you to explore the hills and dales of Pennine Yorkshire.
