Town: Grassington is one of the most charming villages in the Yorkshire Dales National Park. Traditional stone cottages and shops are clustered around the cobbled market place, offering exceptional shopping facilities for a village of this size, with a monthly farmer's market offering a mouthwatering range of organic and homemade local produce. Situated on the River Wharfe, with the extensive Grass Woods to the north of the village, this is a superb walking area. Down dale is Bolton Abbey with the Abbey ruins, the Priory and the famous "Strid Walk". A little further is the elegant town of Ilkley, overlooked by the famous Ilkley Moor. Up dale are Kettlewell and Buckden boasting spectacularly beautiful limestone scenery. With many other beauty spots scattered throughout Wharfedale, Grassington provides a great base for exploring the local area and all that the Dales have to offer, with Brontë Country and York also being within easy motoring distance.

absolutely lovely, it had everything we needed and more and was conveniently situated in the middle of the village. the only problem was, unknown to me I had booked the accommodation when grassington festival was on. because of this we couldn't drive up to the door to unload as stated in the literature and had to find a back way into the village and then do several trips to unload. this was difficult due to our ages and disabilities. the festival is on at the same time every year and I feel that we should have been told so that we could arrive before the road was closed off or else arrive later in the day when it reopened. there was a very unhelpfull " jobsworth " character manning the road closed barrier who actually told us we couldn't get to the cottage that day !! not a good start to our holiday, however someone else told us about the back way into the village and we took things from there
More than what we expected, a jewel in Grassington's crown.

Lottie's was everything and more than we needed for our Christmas break in the Dales.
From the moment we entered the property we knew it was just what we wanted, the owners had made a proper effort, with Christmas gifts for both of us and a small but lovely Christmas tree trimmed up to give the apartment that festive feel.
It is ideally located right in the centre of Grassington, close to all the amenities and hostelrys.
It was very well equipped and in pristine condition.
The owners very kindly advised us where to park our car as parking is of a premium in Grassington.
Say what you liked best or least, this is easy as the cottage was very good, unfortunately Sykes nor the owners can do anything about the weather which was rubbish!

Most comfortable, clean and cosy apartment. Everything was well organised both by Sykes Cottages and the owner. Would certainly recommend to family and friends.

The apartment was very homely with tasteful decor / furnishings. The kitchen and bathroom were modern, well equipped and clean. It was a pleasure to return to after a day out.
The location is excellent being in the centre of the village and also convenient for touring the Yorkshire Dales.
Although there is no parking at the property it was easy enough to park free within the village.

The flat was warm and welcoming. We had a good idea
of it's location having visited Grassington some
time before. The village itself was quiet because
of the time of year but it is not far from towns
and tourist attractions for it to be an ideal base
and a place of peace and quiet to return to.
The flat had all the amenities necessary. The
equipment in the flat made the stay very
comfortable. We were not too sure about the rugs as
they moved when trying to stand up. The bed was
We had friends visit us on two occasions but it was
difficult to find enough seating without someone
sitting at the table on a hard chair.

Took advantage of short break while our son in Geneva. Had a great time. Accommodation of a very high standard and very cosy. No issues with parking as found space in square each evening. Village delightful. Pubs all welcoming but food only average. Whereas mushy peas at the chippy took me back to my childhood. Would visit again.
