The property

A charming stone-built cottage resting in the popular Yorkshire Dales village of Grassington, Town Head Cottage is a lovely two bedroom property perfect for a walking holiday.

Immerse yourself in the Dales with walks all around, and plenty of quaint villages to stop at, returning to the homely setting of 14 Town Head each day.

Be welcomed into the charming sitting area, where a wonderful feature wall displays a large image of some nearby scenery, with a sofa bed, two armchairs and a TV, you can relax in here after a satisfying day of walking.

Move into the kitchen/diner to discover all you need for a self-catered stay, you can rustle up a home-cooked meal with the electric oven and hob, and wash any muddy or wet clothing straight away in the handy washing machine.

Head upstairs to find two lovely double bedrooms and a shared bathroom, with photography of the surrounding area decorating the walls throughout adding a beautiful reminder of your stunning location.

The village of Grassington is a hub of activity for such a small setting, it has quaint cafés and tearooms to enjoy a spot of tea and cake after a walk, pubs to enjoy in the evening, and even a museum, Grassington Folk Museum.

From Grassington you can hop onto the Dales Way and head north bringing you to the charming village of Kettlewell and the peak Great Whernside.

Enjoy a wonderful day out at Parcevall Hall Gardens and roam the 24 acres of formal and woodland gardens, and while you're in this area don't miss a chance to see Stump Cross Caverns to explore the wonder of the underground caves where prehistoric fossils have been found!

Hop on the Embsay and Bolton Abbey Steam Railway for a trip back in time and be pulled along in a restored Edwardian or Victorian carriage by a traditional steam train whilst taking in the beautiful sights and scenery, stopping at Bolton Abbey to walk up to the ruins of Bolton Abbey Priory.

Discover even more beauty around the Yorkshire Dales National Park, exploring a wealth of walking trails, cycling routes and adventure activities alongside rural attractions at Linton Falls, ruins of Ingleborough fortress, and challenging hikes up Aysgarth Falls.

Visit the lovely village of Hebden, home to amazing cultural attractions including Hardcastle Crags in the Pennine valley, and Hebden Suspension Bridge over the River Wharfe, whilst Skipton market town boasts exciting amenities such as The Strid Ancient Woodland, Kilnsey Park, and Threshfield Quarry.

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.
