The Unicorn Hotel is a landmark building in Skipton having traded as a hotel for more than 100 years. Now falling somewhere between a classic hotel and a B&B, it has fabulous, boutique-style rooms and offers a hearty breakfast that gets rave online reviews. For that extra touch of luxury, they offer superior rooms with a king-size bed, deluxe furnishings and a small sitting area.

For those travelling by car for the first part of their journey, there’s free parking, while biking facilities include storage in a secure gated area behind the hotel.
