The cottage was beautifully furnished and had everything we needed for a relaxing weekend break. The location cannot be faulted as you are only a few steps away from the village square with it's many shops, pubs and restaurants - we would definitely recommend the cottage

Fantastic instructions re arrival.The cottage was a
large studio with en suite, but very cosy and
sweet. We used it as a base for our walking
holiday, but it was lovely to come back to in the
evening. The cottage is in the centre of
Grassington and ideally placed to stroll home from
one of the many pubs and restaurants. Grassington
also has a small supermarket, bakers (great first
thing in the morning to stock up with drinks and
sandwiches before our walk) and numerous delightful
gift shops. The only slight problem was that the
cottage was on a narrow hill and it was very
difficult to get the car down. As there was no
parking, the car had to be parked elsewhere and you
had to walk to the cottage. I could see this would
be a problem to anyone who had difficulty in
walking too far. Overall an excellent place to stay
and very dog friendly.
Bad start but got better

No problem to find the key. The home has been furnitured with much love for the detail. Well equipped. The backyard would probably have looked friendlier if the weather had been better.
The landscape around is great, especially the Dales.
Ideal start for traveling, walking, sightseeing.
We enjoyed our visit to very much.
