  • "The cottage was lovely and clean and very homely and cosy."

    Everything we needed was provided. The beds were comfortable even the sofa bed. The view from the lounge was stunning and you could sit there all day just watching the river flow by. It was nice to sit in the garden first thing in the morning with a cup of tea, listening to the birds. The steps down to the sitting area were a bit dodgy so care needs to be taken when going down to the garden. The parking was a bit tight but overall we had a fantastic stay and would be very happy to go back. Thank you for a lovely stay

    Clean, comfortable, well maintained and equipped. Everything was easy to use e.g. heating, cooker, shower. The position of Riverside is truly amazing with the view from the bow window in the lounge being breathtaking. Cathy and Steve were very welcoming and friendly. We recommend Riverside.

  • "Absolutely stunning location with views of the River Wharfe, surrounding fells with close proximity to Grassington itself."

    We've stayed in many holiday cottages and for the views it's the best. Can't imagine we'll find better but, if we're fortunate to do so, WOOW!!! Owner, Cathy, very helpful and understanding especially when our Labrador Jake decided to have a barking episode. Our week's holiday weather ranged from heat with bright sunshine to cold with snow. This changed the landscape adding to the experience The cottage itself is clean, comfortable with all modcons apart from a dishwasher. Thanks Cathy and we'll be back if you'll have us and Jake.

    One of the best equipped S/C properties I have stayed in. Plenty of room for 2 people, loved having a Kingsized bed, plus lots of storage. We enjoyed the quietness at night, along with the proximity to the centre of Grassington, making a pleasant morning walk for papers and croissants. I don’t think the website photographs do the property justice..

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.
