About Samantha Bollen
I have lived in Skipton for nearly 30 years and love the town and surrounding Dales. Having worked as a nurse and midwife I gave up the profession to raise our 3 boys William, Edward and George. In 2008 after a long planning struggle I opened the Victorian wash house which is situated in our back garden , as an antique shop. Having traded for 9 good years I decided it was time for a change. Recognising that people love to stay in the town I decided to convert the building into a holiday let.
Samantha Bollen purchased this Cottage in 2008
Why Samantha Bollen chose Skipton
The property is unique within the town centre as it is unusually large for a Victorian terrace wash house. It has had a varied social history since 1855 and exudes charm with its flagged floor and trussed roof. I have tried to enhance these features in a quirky traditional way while providing the modern home comforts
What makes this Cottage unique
Its greatest benefit is its location right in the town centre in a mixed friendly terrace. As we live in the main property, we are on hand should you require us.

Special place to stay in Skipton
The Wash House is a lovely place to stay that has been decorated to a high standard and imaginative design.
A cosy place to stay with all the amenities close by.
Highly recommend. Will certainly pay another visit!
Perfect location and good property.
Ideal for two persons. Cosy and comfortable.
Beautiful, quirky and fabulous place to stay
The accommodation itself is marvellous with lovely furnishings and attention to detail. With original features but all modern conveniences it's a perfect place to stay in this delightful town. It's so peaceful but convenient being so close to the High Street with its individual shops and lovely places to eat. The owners were very helpful and it was lovely to receive a welcome pack on arrival. We stayed for a week using it as a centre for a walking holiday and had one of our best holidays ever!
Perfect get away
Beautiful house. So clean and tastefully decorated with love. Thankyou
Quirky and fabulous
The wash house is an amazing little cottage that has been transformed from an antique shop into a beautiful, comfortable and quirky home from home. It is right in the centre of Skipton, so all requirements are on the doorstep. Brilliant location for exploring the Yorkshire dales.
This truly is 5 star in every way.
