  • "It was our 2nd visit to Lane Fold."

    Nice and comfortable, with a large living room. There is steep stairs up to the 2 good sized bedrooms, but take your time and its not an issue. Lovely cottage for exploring the Yorkshire Dales. Will definitely return, excellent value.

  • "His cottage is in the beautiful village of Grassington."

    It has a large lounge including kitchen dinner. It has all that you would require for four people. Access to cottage could be difficult for some people and in season parking could be difficult even to drop off but this applies to all of Grassington. The approach is by pebble cobbles which are on a slope and can be slippery. Front door is normal width but split in two making access not easy unless both doors open you then enter a narrow galley kitchen. The shower room is not in house but in an outhouse opposite house. House has a bathroom with bath and shower but could do with safety rails. Stairs are narrow and steep. The location is great and if you are fit the accommodation may well suit you. I think it’s reasonable value for money but does have issues

  • "This is the second time we have used this fabulous cottage as a base for a cycling holiday in the Dales."

    The village, itself, is perfectly placed and has everything you could possibly need. The pubs and cafes are all really friendly and dogs are welcome everywhere. The village store carries a wide range of necessities and is open quite late everyday. The cottage is lovely and warm and very comfortable with sumptuous beds and a good hot shower. There is ample, free parking nearby and an outhouse/washroom which is big and secure enough to store a couple of bikes. The kitchen is well equipped and the lounge area is large and very relaxing. The recent addition of WiFi was a welcome bonus too. The owner.Joyce, was in contact to make sure that everything was OK and help was on hand if we needed it (we didn't!} All in - a lovely place to stay in a very beautiful part of the world. Well recommended!!

  • "Lovely old fashioned cottage set in the heart of Grassington village with all it's amenities."

    Kitchen is rather compact but we tended to only have breakfast there and make picnics. Parking could be awkward. We were lucky and managed to get on the small free parking area next to the cottage. The area is of outstanding natural beauty and there are many good walks from the cottage. The village is very attractive and contains many good pubs and cafes. The prices are quite high which is expected in a tourist area. Would highly recommend for walkers like ourselves.

    Dog gate to the kitchen was extremely useful. Really liked the wood burning stove although you need to buy your own wood.

    The only element I’d recommend the owners to do is change / upgrade the TV . After a good days walking , couple of drinks with dinner it’s nice to relax at home , but watching a postage stamp not good … let’s it down and reduces score . Otherwise happy to go to top marks ..

  • "This is my second time in this cottage and I’m already thinking about another visit as I do love it!"

    It doesn’t have Wifi, though, which many other places do now and phone signal in the cottage is a bit iffy. Parking is a bit of an issue - especially when transporting luggage as it isn’t always easy to park close by the property. I would also recommend taking toilet rolls as there hasn’t been enough on both my stays! But it is cosy, well placed and I want to come again!

    I recommend making it readily available. The owner was just wonderful to work with and very accommodating. The cottage is lovely and nicely located. A clothes dryer in the outhouse would be appreciated as well.

  • "The cottage was as advertised, but we found it extremely difficult to keep clean, due to the walk down to the cottage door, running water and mud on the cobbles!"

    Not a good place to take a dog. We would have expected a starter pack of wood, maybe some bread and milk, more than one toilet roll for four people!! Oh and a working torch would have been useful!!!!!

  • "The cottage whilst old and full of character which we loved could really do with a significant update, the bathroom in particular needs some serious attention and the kitchen is just not fit for purpose in my opinion."

    The drain in the kitchen sink had an unpleasant smell when we arrived and every time you used it. The tap was also leaking and needs replacing, There was a really dirty wooden chopping board left in the kitchen which had a bad odour so that went in the outhouse for the week, The toaster appeared to not have been cleaned out for some time also, information on the board was out of date and not all accurate, The outhouse was a good addition but is just not finished so it was not inviting to use the toilet or shower! great village setting with fantastic local amenities but sadly we will not be looking to book this particular cottage again, in my view this property is not accurately represented in your listing. Real shame as with a bit of upgrading this could be so much better!

    Thank you for your feedback, we are sorry to read that you had a couple of issues during your stay. We will ask someone to attend the property to look at the tap, the kitchen is new so we were unaware of any problem with this, we will also ask them to check the drains. We will also pass on your comments regarding the toaster and the chopping board to the cleaner. Property Owner

  • "This is the third time we've rented the cottage."

    It's comfortable for two couples sharing and convenient for the village facilities and as a base for walking. It could probably do with a bit of redecorating here and there but we wouldn't want anything too spick and span with dog and muddy boots etc. Wifi would be useful as I run my own business but not essential. I guess the best recommendation is that we hope to be renting it again next year.

  • "The photos were clever for example showing the kitchen by opening both doors and standing up the stairs to take the shot."

    The freezer was in the out building across the patio. The kitchen is too small to be used regularly, especially for four people. The photos on the web site do not reflect the fact that this is a very small cottage. The room/building across the patio is not fit for purpose. It was not finished and very musty and damp smelling. There was no WiFi which is a first for us. No welcome pack and no wood. Positive points were that the cottage heating was effective and the cottage was warm. The beds were comfortable and the bedding of a high quality.

  • "Cottage was in an excellent location - Grassington highly recommended village to stay in."

    Think it would be useful if cottage had a list of places to eat in Grassington as luckily we found the fish and chip place on the last evening - lovely treat. Also check out the Corner House café - food was amazing. Tried a couple of the other tea rooms In Grassington and they were good aswell. Very well stocked Spar shop and awesome butcher. A list of nearest bigger supermarket and petrol facilities would have been useful for those people not familiar with the area - both found in Skipton (Morrisons and Tesco) having asked local shopkeeper. We cooked in the cottage at night which was fine for us- maybe the cottage needed a small set of weighing scales and a larger casserole dish than was provided but we managed ok. Did lots of walks around Grassington - great Dales Tourist information building in village with lots of local guides and maps - bought little book of 6miles and under walks around Grassington - the ones we did were ok for everyone. Overall had a great holiday with fantastic weather in a beautiful Yorkshire village - would recommend the cottage.

The property

An end-terrace, stone-built cottage tucked away in a quiet and peaceful corner of Grassington, just a few hundred yards from the town centre.

A character Grassington cottage providing comfortable accommodation in one of the Yorkshire Dales' premier resorts.

This delightful Grassington cottage has been styled and furnished very much in keeping with a traditional Dales cottage and features an open plan ground floor with a sitting area with a lovely woodburner, a small kitchen and a dining area.

Upstairs, the cottage has two bedrooms and a small bathroom.

Outside, the shared courtyard provides a lovely place to sit out and watch everyday village life, whilst across the courtyard is a stone building / outhouse which provides a drying area, storage and a separate shower unit with WC.

This cosy Grassington cottage is just a ten minute walk from the river and a two minute walk from the famous village centre, with its old curiosity shops, excellent local pubs, good eating establishments and of course, the old cobbled square where the annual Dickensian weekends are a real show-stopper.

Add to this the annual Grassington Festival and the close proximity of many of the Dales' famous tourist locations and you've a Grassington holiday cottage not to be missed.

The area is a walker's paradise, with beautiful walks in the village surrounds as well as more challenging walks into the nearby hills.

A lovely Grassington holiday cottage, ideal for getting away from it all and enjoying thisfabulous area.

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.
