  • "We all really enjoyed our stay here, the house and garden are lovely and the view is fantastic."

    We liked the location, 5 min walk into town and the Dales Way footpath at the bottom of the garden.

  • "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.

  • "Fantastic house and spectacular garden and views."

    best stay yet for large group. plenty of room and thanks to the lovely weather we made the most of the garden and patios/summer house. plenty of places in walking distance for coffee The runners in the family were amazed with the local runs. walking distance of river for "tiddler" fishing and stone skimming much to the delight of the grandchildren could maybe have had a larger fridge for the number of people but that was the only thing to find fault with . .

    The welcome gift of tea, coffee, milk and biscuits was much appreciated upon arrival, would definitely recommend this house for a holiday. Great walks from the doorstep with Grassington a 5 minute walk away, we didn’t need to use the car all week.

  • "The cottage was brilliant."

    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!

  • "The house itself was lovely, with views of the river, and in a great location."

    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.

  • "Fabulous character property with lots of charm and lovely homely touches in an ideal location for exploring the countryside without being too remote as village is just a short walk uphill with shops, cafes."

    And pubs in a quaint cobblestone square. Beautiful large garden with summerhouse overlooking the river perfect for relaxing after walks in the countryside or eating in the square most of which are very dog friendly too. When the weather was awful it was still lovely just to sit on the window cushions and watch the bubbling river and admire the fantastic views.

  • "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.

  • "This is a lovely cosy house."

    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.
