Ideally located for canal watching over breakfast and lovely views of the Dales. The communal areas are fine but our room was a bit dated though very clean. A good, family-run hotel with helpful staff.
We'd definitely recommend the breakfast.

You will find this hotel just on the outskirts of Skipton, a traditional market town in the beautiful Yorkshire Dales. Dine …More
Nice old pub in a remote country village. we used the Buck Inn as our hub to visit the Skipton area of the Dales and it was perfect for that. Be prepared for some tricky country roads (not for the faint hearted). Buck Inn is clean, comfortable and has a good level of amenities, though you can forget your mobile (there us ni Vodafone signal- a plus for our break!). Food was excellent, atmosphere very friendly.
I chose this inn because my brother had business meetings a few miles down the road. I did not realize when I booked that it was not really in a village where there would be shopping and such, and I did not have a car. When I asked what there was to do, the staff was very helpful telling me about the available buses to nearby towns, and then then recommending the wonderful 5 mile hike into the countryside, which I thoroughly enjoyed.
You should know in advance that the rooms are over the pub, so be prepared to have noise until midnight.
Having had a long day walking in rain and fallen over in mud, Zarina dried out my anorak overnight, and washed my walking trousers which was beyond the call of duty. Steven provided me with bus time table so that I could catch the last bus back down the dale from Buckden. Small things which mean a lot. Excellent breakfast.
I enjoyed my three night stay in Sweetbriar Cottage, it was a good base for my road cycling in the Dales.
A nice bed and breakfast accommodation, in which I slept very well. Colin makes a good breakfast, and was always there to answer any questions I had about the area.
