  • "Had a great week, despite the weather."

    Lovely house in a fantastic location with wonderful views over the River Wharfe. Could have spent hours looking at the view, and watching the abundance of wildlife make its way up and down the valley, if it wasn't for the kids. Found some great walks from the house and loved just pottering around Grassington with all of its local shops and cafes.

  • "The cottage was lovely- really clean and just as described."

    It is so close to the river and the little village of Grassington so ideal for some of our party who cannot walk very far. Would really recommend this cottage for other people- comfortable, spacious and just right for a week's stay

  • "Fantastic location."

    Wonderful garden. Amazing view. Great sized property. Basement damp. Some uncomfortable beds. Dusty cobwebs and dog hairs found as not completely clean. However a great time had by all.

  • "Loved this cottage particularly, being a painter myself, for its proliferation of artworks throughout which I so enjoyed."

    We appreciated the beautifully maintained garden and summerhouse. Stunning views of the river Wharfe with a gorgeous walk to Burnsall right below the cottage garden. Very well equipped. Diligent and attentive owner. Very spacious. Delightful. Only drawback for us, with two dogs (who we were delighted to be allowed to bring as not ever cottage owner wants two dogs in their house) was that the garden has a right of way across it so dogs had to be kept on the lead. However, we coped as did the dogs? Highly recommended.

    Great house and location. Provision of towels and sunshade in garden would be welcome improvement. Beautiful garden but has no shade. In height of summer, a sunshade would be appreciated

  • "Bridge End is a beautiful property in a superb location."

    It was ideal for a family week away with plenty of space for 6 adults and two children to relax and brilliant facilities. The family really enjoy the garden and the walks that were easily accessed from the bottom of the garden. Unfortunately I was unable to join them as I have MS and need to use a disability scooter. I enjoyed the fact that I could access the amenities in the village with the presence of dropped kerbs and step free shops - not something you find in every village. Personally speaking, the only improvement that I could think to suggest would be seating that is not so low - very difficult for me to get up from - and a possible bed settee on the ground floor for when I can no longer manage the stairs. All in all a very comfortable family holiday with plenty to see and do in the the area.

  • "Property has lovely views from the sitting room, bedroom and garden, and is nicely furnished (especially for somewhere that accepts dogs)."

    Comfortable bed, and good water pressure for the showers. (This property does not provide bath towels, so don't forget to pack your own.) There was plenty of crockery and the kitchen seemed well equipped. We enjoyed the log fire, the "starter" logs provided were enough for 3 evenings. It is a short walk up into the village centre, or to get onto the Dales Way footpath. Grassington itself is lovely, lots of good places to eat and some interesting shops. Some of the plates in the cupboard had crumbs on them, and some of the ramekins had also been put away without being properly cleaned, so we did put a lot of crockery through the dishwasher before using it. I think this would have been done by the people staying immediately before us, and as the dishes were in the cupboard the cleaner could not have noticed. Possibly if the "house" instructions were to run the dishwasher and / or hand wash any dishes, but to leave them in the dishwasher / drainer at the end of the stay this would be less likely to happen? We would very happily stay at this house again next time we are in Grassington.

  • "The house and location are both amazing, the views are stunning and the closeness to Grassington is perfect for amenities, being able to walk to the local shops and pubs was a real plus."

    The house itself was well equipped and very much a home from home, we settled in straight away. The only comment I would make is the beds in the single rooms were not very comfortable. Other than that there were no complaints at all.

  • "We had an amazing time staying in Bridge End for the New Year."

    We met the lady in housekeeping upon arrival who had done a fabulous job in making the house spotless for our arrival. We felt right at home with everything you can imagine being provided for our week long stay. The position of the property located at the edge of the village was perfect with just a short walk into the pubs and shops. The garden in the summer would be ideal for the summer evenings with a glass of wine listening to the river running by. Definitely will book again.

  • "We really enjoyed our stay here."

    The house was like a home. It was decorated for Christmas. The kitchen was really well equipped with everything you could possibly need. We loved the view of the river from the front room it was fantastic. The garden was lovely and in warmer months you can sit out admiring the view. The bedrooms were comfortable and we slept really well throughout our stay. The village was a five minute walk away with pubs, restaurants and shops. There was a walk directly outside of the property along the river to Linton. Great weekend and perfect for spending time together as a family.

  • "The property was beautifully situated with long views of the river which we particularly enjoyed."

    The house and rooms were colorful, spacious, clean and welcoming and we thought the kitchen was very well equipped. The village was full of interest and a 5 minute walk away, though a bit too steep a walk for those with walking aids. There were some lovely country walks straight from the door and if going further afield you are spoilt for choice of places to visit without needing to go more than 10 miles or so. And a good open fire for when you return. There are some small bits that could do with a refresh such as the microwave, placemats and a squeaky blue window chair But we would be very happy to return and see the house, and the view, in all the different seasons.

    It was more spacious than you would expect for a terraced cottage and the decoration was really artistic. In France it would be called a 'gite de caractere'. The situation overlooks the River Wharfe and several paths in the valley pass by the cottage. It is close to the Linton Falls which are quite spectacular after heavy rain. Highly recommended!

    It was well equipped, and there was plenty of room for our family group of seven, plus dog. Only problem was that the basement bedroom was quite cold, even with the electric heater on. But all in all, we were very happy with house, and were impressed to find such a great house, with a bedroom configuration that worked for our group, at such a reasonable price for half-term week.

  • "The location and facilities of Bridge End were perfect for our mixed age group of 8."

    The location is idyllic with wonderful views of the river from the house and the garden. This affording walks along the river, where the brave enjoyed a swim and all within easy walking distance of the village. The house is spacious and homely, comfortable and well equipped. It was good to be able to sit in different groupings using the two rooms with comfortable seating. Having a driveway for car parking is important here, although the driveway does mean the second car blocking the first. This was a great find.

  • "It was a great holiday."

    Fantastic location. And a beautifully presented cottage with great facilities. My only concern was that prior to booking I had asked (Sykes) if the basement room could be made up as a double to accommodate our party. Sykes told me that that could be done, and on that basis I made the booking. However, when I spoke the owners of the cottage itself for final arrangements, they said they know nothing of this request and it could not be facilitated. This was a shame and sounds like a failure of communication between Sykes and the owners.

    The pictures don’t really do it justice. We had a lovely Christmas with the six of us augmented by local family visits for meals and games. I was nervous about cooking Xmas dinner in a holiday home kitchen but I need not have been. The double oven functioned perfectly and our large turkey just squeaked into it. A complete success. In between meals we walked up and down the river and over the moor. Everyone agreed it would have been hard to better.

About the location


Skipton 9 miles; Ilkley 12 miles.

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.
