  • "A lovely cottage, really clean and provided everything you would need, in a really great location for walks and local amenities but tucked away in a quiet spot."

    Would definitely return and recommend.

  • "Beautiful cottage with everything you need in a fantastic location on the edge of the village, 3 minutes from the centre."

    Spotlessly clean. Beds extremely comfortable. Log burner a real treat, only enough wood for a couple of days but the property is very warm anyway with silent central heating. Virtually perfect

  • "Lovely cottage."

    Great location. Lots of nice touches throughout such as leaving some beer/wine and wood for the fire. Helpful notes everywhere to explain how things worked. Only slight issue was the heating didn't really seem to come on properly. Overall, fantastic stay and would highly recommend.

  • "This is one of the best cottages we have been to in terms of comfort and decorative order - we particularly liked all the tasteful and decorative touches."

    We parked in front of the cottage and initially this was a slight concern, but in a village, having a separate parking space comes at a premium, and we understood this. In fact the parking was OK because we had a small car. Also, it would have been useful to have a couple of tea towels provided.

    Lots of great walking, good restaurants and places to visit.

  • "A really pleasant stay in a great comfortable cottage that is really well presented and located well in the village, I also agree previous comments about the finishing touches provided."

    One thing - the Sykes directions are wrong, the cottage is not on Cove Lane and this needs to be changed, From Bull Ing Lane carry straight on uphill (HIghcroft/ Townhead) and where the lane turns right at the entrance to the dairy the cottage is just on the left side a few houses along, opposite a small group of garages!

    Thanks for the feedback, we have been in touch with Owner relations at Sykes and updated the directions. Glad you had a good stay. Property Owner

  • "The cottage is quite delightful, the detailed branding runs throughout, so many little touches that sets it apart from the rest."

    The cottage was spotlessly clean and very comfortable. The location is superb for walking in the local area.

    Thank you for your lovely feedback. We really appreciate all comments. So glad to hear you enjoyed your stay with us! Regards Millie, Town Head Cottage. Property Owner

  • "Directions were confusing and incorrect for the final route into the village and on to townhead."

    I know the village well and found it after a search others may not. Parking was an issue with some blue Vitara, or something like, always choosing to park in the spot for the cottage. Other than that a super spot to relax and the cottage with all its guidance posters perfect! highly recommended.

    Thanks for your feedback, we really appreciate all comments. The detached garage opposite is ours and we are looking to include this in with stays, so hopefully will alleviate issues on parking as it is an issue across Grassington. Regarding the directions did you get these from Sykes or from us the owners, we usually let Sykes organise so if this is the case we will look at altering Glad to hear you had a good stay Regards Simon, Town Head Cottage Property Owner

  • "Great location, easy walk into the village and lots to do in the area."

    House quite nice, small & cosy and new nice touches like umbrellas and throws. Only dining seating for 2 people so unfortunately & disappointingly we could not have any meals together as a family even breakfast (limited seating not mentioned in summary). Bathroom needs extractor fan as only ventilation is the window which opens onto neighbours garden so not ideal. Lots of notes & signs everywhere throughout the house with rules!

    2nd bedroom just a double. Cottage lovely and clean well equipped. expensive for off peak week.

  • "*New signage for parking would be better as the parking sign on the wall stated disabled and would be better saying parking for 14, Townhead cottage."

    We spoke to the neighbours as we didn't want to park there but they said it was ok to park as we were in the cottage. *Noise from the dairy up the road was constant but manageable and lots of traffic on such a picturesque road leading to and from the main street. *Bin lorries should be mentioned in the cottage booklet as we were woken very early with the noise Thursday morning. *A town plan would be useful in the cottage even though there were plenty other books of walks etc as I enjoy running and a nearby route would've been beneficial. Overall the cottage was superb, very clean and absolutely everything you would need from a home to home experience so thank you.

  • "Lovely cottage."

    Not easy to find and parking instructions could be clearer...assumed we could park in front of the disabled signs? Also, no fish slice so frying an egg and trying to get it out of the pan was interesting. Central heating wasn’t working when we arrived. The owner got a plumber out quickly and fixed it which was positive

The property

A striking stone-built cottage resting in the popular Yorkshire Dales village of Grassington.

Town Head Cottage is a lovely two-bedroom property welcoming families, friends and couples for a wonderful break in this ever popular area.

The cosy and romantic cottage has been lovingly restored whilst keeping its charm and character and is just a short walk to the famous village centre, with its old curiosity shops, excellent local pubs, good eating establishments and of course, the old cobbled square where the monthly farmers market selling the finest fresh produce and the annual Dickensian weekends can be found.

Add this to the annual Grassington Festival and the close proximity of many of the famous Dales attractions, Town Head Cottage offers you a fantastic break in a superb location.

Make yourself at home in the charming sitting room, with its exposed stone work, wooden beams, as well as a lovely window seat.

Put your feet up in front of the wood burning stove, give Alexa a shout for your favourite tunes or simply switch on the impressive Smart TV that is accompanied with full Sky Sports and Movie channels, perfect to relax and unwind your way.

Move into the country style kitchen/diner where you can rustle up a home cooked meal with the electric oven and hob, with more rustic stone work as a backdrop and discover a vast selection of appliances including a Tassimo coffee machine.

When you can just about tear yourself away from this delightful dwelling, be sure to grab your waking boots as the area is filled with an abundance of unspoilt landscapes just waiting to be explored.

20 meters from the front door you can jump on the Dales Way and head North bringing you to the charming village of Kettlewell and the peak Great Whernside.

The area is a walkers paradise, with beautiful walks along the river Wharfe to Linton Falls and onto the beautiful Burnsall, as well as more challenging walks up on the fells. For fun for the whole family head to Kilnsey Park for a little fishing or swing through the woodland at Treetop Nets.

An outstanding all round holiday cottage, not to be missed!

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.
