About the property

Recently refurbished to executive feel to this 5 bedroom accomodation

This idyllic stone built 17th Century Cottage, 5 bedroom property has recently being refurbished throughout to provide an executive quality finish. Less than 1 minute from the village centre, accessed through a 'secret passage' and yet tucked away in a 'hidden' street, that enables the garden to become a quiet sanctuary from the lively village life. The 5 bedroom, 3 bathrooms, layout allows maximum flexible sleeping arrangements. The property includes many original features, including underfloor heated Yorkshire stone floors in the kitchen and dinning room, as well as original exposed beams and open fire in the dinning room and log burner in the lounge. The mature and well stocked garden benefits from sufficiently high garden walls to ensure privacy, yet big enough to enjoy the sun all day round. There is off road parking for four cars making this the most perfect family vacation. DVD Player plus ipod/pad/phone dock and a small library of DVD/ games/books;; Bed linen and towels included;

Beautiful House and Location

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was ideal for our family weekend of six adults and two young children.

The arrangement of bedrooms and bathrooms was very good as was the kitchen and dining area.

The enclosed garden and outdoor seating area was well used as we enjoyed the sunny weather.

We loved the location as it was so close to the village, yet quiet.

There are lots of things to do in the area. We visited Stump Cross Cavern's, and Bolton Abbey.

One note of caution. If you are over six feet tall watch your head as you go through the doorway from the kitchen to the sittingroom. It took several bumps for my husband to remember to duck.

Loved this place!

  • 5 of 5

Booked as a surprise birthday gift for our mum and she loved turning up to find the entire family hiding in the front room!

Lovely house with plenty of room for us 8 adults and the 2 kids.

Good size garden for the dog and parking was no issue for 4 cars, even though it was the 1940s festival weekend.

Highly recommend a visit to Grassington and a stay here. We are now trying to find dates we can all go again!

Paul (owner) has been contactable and helpful throughout the booking and afterwards.

Loved it! Thank you!

a lovely find!

  • 4 of 5

The house and garden were great - ideal for a big family get together with plenty of space. Great location in the middle of grassington and easy to get everywhere. We even had lots of sunshine! Heed the advice and take your slippers... Those stone floors are cold! Our only criticism was that the previous visitors must have had a dog that they didn't clean up after. We spent the first couple of days clearing all the dog poo off the lawn before we could let the kids play on it. Please clean up after your dogs!
