About the property

Cottage in Grewelthorpe, near Masham on edge of Yorkshire Dales, Yorkshire, England - Peaceful Location, short walk to Hackfall Woods Close to Ripon

Our lovely self catering cottage has been converted from period stables and is situated on the outskirts of Grewelthorpe which is in the Nidderdale “area of outstanding natural beauty”. With easy access to the many attractions that the area offers, we think this is the perfect place for a relaxing break. We have worked hard to make our cottage a super comfortable home from home, with high quality furnishings and attractive textiles to compliment the building. For heating and hot water we have installed a biomass boiler that ensures you can be toasty warm in the cold months with under floor heating whilst still being eco friendly. The water supply comes from our own well and doesn't contain any extra chemicals.

Lovely Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a lovely holiday at The Stables. The cottage is beautifully furnished, cosy and peaceful a real gem.

The location is ideal for accessing the Dales, Fountains Abbey, Ripon, Harrogate, York, Durham etc. There are also lovely walks from the doorstep, would recommend the circular walk to Masham.

Geoff and Val are very welcoming. Would highly recommend and we would like to return for another stay.

Top class accommodation

  • 5 of 5

The Stables surpassed our expectations; it was spaceous yet cosy with the underfloor heating, very clean and modern and clearly a lot of thought had gone into its design, layout and artistic detail. We found everything that we needed for a perfect stay. Geoff and Val were ideal hosts and provided us with a wealth of local information on where to visit and eat out and the treats they left made us feel especially welcome. Although we were only able to stay a few days we definitely want to visit again to explore the area some more and have already recommended it to family and friends. Though our stay was short we thoroughly enjoyed exploring Harrogate, Rippon and Masham and have started a list of things to do for our next visit.

Thank you so much Geoff and Val for making our short stay a real treat.

Fantastic luxury cottage

  • 5 of 5

The cottage had everything we wanted and more. The living area was spacious but cosy and the beds were extremely comfortable. The extra touches were much appreciated; a home baked cake and fresh eggs both of which we enjoyed. Geoff the owner was friendly but not intrusive and we will definitely be returning in the future.

You'll not find a better Holiday Home!

  • 5 of 5

Over the last 20 years, both before and with children, we have stayed at numerous cottages, farmhouses, holiday apartments around the British Isles. Without exaggeration The Stables at Grewelthorpe would be our no.1! These converted stables are immaculate, imaginative and immediately instill a sense of calm and peace (even with the children!) The stables are spacious, fully equipped and furnished, and boast two modern en suite bedrooms. Plus a patio and, behind that, a back garden for playing a spot of football with sheep as fans! If you can prize yourself away from this perfect holiday home then its just a short drive to Newby Hall, Ripon and Lightwater Valley (adored by our two young sons). Geoff and Val thanks for a wonderful 4 days (and we didn't even mention the cake and bubbly!)
