The Rendezvous Hotel is a Skipton legend, located on the outskirts of town. It has a fantastic conservatory restaurant with canal views (make sure to book early for a window seat), as well as a leisure club with a pool, steam rooms and saunas.


There can be few hotels in the country with their own cycling charter, – the Rendezvous, overlooking the Leeds & Liverpool Canal around a mile outside of Skipton, is one of them. The charter outlines all the ways the hotel makes things easier for cyclists to visit, from the way they are treated when they make an enquiry, to the moment they leave the property.

A number of packages are available for cyclists at the family-run hotel. These include dinner, bed and breakfast, energy gels for the road, packed lunches, secure bike storage, route cards and maps, and a recovery service for any potential blips.
