  • "Blacksmiths cottage is a pet friendly ground floor apartment situated in a little road in the centre of grassington village which is beautiful."

    You can't park outside the property, but the village central square is paces away. The village can get chokka on a Weekend and many shops are closed on a Monday instead. It was a lovely surprise when we went in, true to the photos. It was spotless and compact but had everything we needed for a very comfortable stay and well suited us. Personally I would alter some of the furnishings to create more space and make more of the room, but it was all thoughtfully done, clean and of very good quality and the bed was very comfortable. It was a cold and rainy April outside but we were cosy and warm. We were there for a week, but you could easily stay for much longer here. It wasn't the weather to sit out on the little patio, you wouldn't have been able to use the furniture as it was all damp & the little garden area needed a little tending as does ours this time of year. But we would definitely go back to this property. There are many cafès, and several pub/hotels in the village to choose from. We had a nice meal in the retreat tearooms/bistro and forresters arms , and an excellent meal in the black horse which was slightly more expensive. There is only 1 little Co-op for your basics. 5minutes along to Threshfield in the car there is an esso spar fuel station and shop. But neither are cheap so the locals do their big shop in Skipton which is worth a visit, only 25m away. Wherever you go it will be through stunning countryside, winding roads & some very steep hills and bends. Linton falls is just over the road and worth a walk. Bolton Abbey was just stunning. Those monks knew what they were doing when they chose where to build ! It's £15 for parking but don't let that put you off. Thats per car not person and its for the Abbey as well. Also worth visiting is beautiful little Burnsall, a hamlet next to the river Wharfe with an old bridge over and the red lion pub right on the riverbank where we had one of the best Sunday dinners ever. We walked along the riverbank which was beautiful and there is a lovely old church and 16th century school which is still in use. You do need a car ... or a bike... to get around this beautiful part of the country. The weather wasn't our friend on this trip, but blacksmiths cottage was

  • "Lovely little cottage in the centre of Grassington."

    Just a couple of minutes from all there is to see in the village. Reasonably clean cottage, with all the things you need for your stay. This is a down floor cottage with a property let above, which could be noisy at times with the creaky floorboards above. We were woken most nights in the middle of the night with people going to and from the loo. We also had to turn the boiler off at night as it sounded like a plane was taking off in the room when it clicked on! The only other issue is the lack of parking in the village, but the car park at the nearby visitor centre was accessible and cheap if you couldn’t get parked in the village centre. Lovely pubs, shops and cafes are welcoming and friendly, and the chippy which was 2 doors down from the cottage was great with lovely staff and good quality food. We would come back for another visit when we are next in the area. Love the Yorkshire Dales.

    The bottle of wine on arrival was a lovely touch. The cottage had modern additions such as Alexa, which was a welcome surprise. We would definitely book this cottage again for any future visits to the Dales. The only recommendation, we have for improvement would be information regarding recycling at the property itself (however we did make use of the recycling point on the village square). Free parking is not always available, however the national park carpark is a very short walk away, excellent pricing for a week and also allowed use at different national park authority car parks across the Dales.

  • "Very nice but small accommodation but ideal for a couple and one dog."

    We did initially have an issue with the boiler but on calling the landlady this was sorted out very quickly. The location is perfect with fish and chip shop practically next door, several pubs and coffee shops within a couple of hundred yards and a well stocked Nisa store only a few minutes walk away. There is also a very informative free museum 100 yards away. The parking is not great, could not find a space on arrival but would highly recommend parking at the Dales visitor centre only about 10 minutes walk away, you can buy a weekly parking ticket for £15 but can use it in all the Yorkshire Dales and Richmond Council car parks. The village of Grassington is stunning and very friendly with several great walks nearby, if you wish to travel further afield I would recommend the Tan Hill Inn which is Britain's highest pub, we stayed there one night in the middle of our holiday, it is quite pricey but well worth the experience. If you've never visited the Dales before I would highly recommend both Grassington and Blacksmith's Cottage.

  • "Firstly the description of this property as a cottage, when it is plainly no more than a bed sit, was blatantly misleading."

    Oven was so in need of a good clean, it set off the fire alarm every time we used it and there was a shortage of oven ware. Shared access to the garden does not work when both sets of occupants have dogs, so great care was needed when letting dogs out. First few days went ok, till the bedsit above was let, and due to the presumably wooden floors, it sounded like a herd of wildebeest had moved in. We could hear every time the occupants moved, and that included night time toilet visits. This was the final straw, and we left two days early. To be fair, despite the property being tiny, it was warm and reasonably comfortable, but severely let down by the above points. Second cottage in in less than six months booked with Sykes, in my opinion lacking in several aspects, will make me thing long and hard before any repeat booking.

    I am sorry that you feel that our property description is misleading. However, I do note that this is described as a “beautiful ground floor studio” on our website. Further to this we did also point out the shared access to the garden in our advertisement. However, I would like to assure you that we have passed your comments on to the property owner. However, we were unfortunately not aware of these points during your stay and were therefore not in a position to help get your holiday back on track. Property Owner

    We stayed 3 nights at the opening weekend of the Grassington festival and this place is slap bang in the middle of the town. Uphill on one side of you is the old enigmatic graveyard, and going downhill next door but one you have an excellent chippy (didn't smell and is only open a couple of hours a day) and best of all next to this is the Blackhorse. You may think, like me, that's perfectly located, but then there are 3 more pubs within a couple of minutes of this, all the fine arts and crafts shops, and also tearooms aplenty if you like that type of thing. If you like to sit in or drink tea in the garden then this is not really the place for you to stay. However this is Grassington, it's in the Yorkshire Dales, so who in their right mind is going to stay in. We like to walk too and there are numerous great walks from Grassington. We hiked to Kettlewell and back via Conistone Dib and the following day we did a walking tour of the local villages - Linton, Thorpe, Burnsall, Hebden - and then a gentle stroll down the Wharf back to Grassington. We have stayed all over the dales in many types of cottages and this is probably the smallest but we would stay here again. Oh and the locals will make you feel so welcome.

    We loved it however, there isn't a facility for parking your car at the cottage which it appears has put some people off from booking again. We knew the village so expected this but it may be better to say in the information about where you can park so that it isn't a bad surprise when people get there. The parking wasn't too far away but it was a little walk. However, you can stop outside the cottage to load and unload your car but as the road is single track, not for very long. It is 2 doors down from the Black Horse pub, which is lovely and convenient and there wasn't any noise from it at all. Because of the thick walls of the cottage there was hardly any outside noise at all and it was lovely and cosy. The most noise came from the people walking about upstairs and one night when the tumble dryer was put on which vibrated downstairs and did keep us awake. Some people, in the visitors book, had said that the bed was awful. it wasn't awful but I think the mattress either needs changing or turning over as over time there are definite dips in it where people have slept and this could be a bit uncomfortable. After finding my `spot' though it was fine. Everything that I needed in the cottage was provided including some lovely towels, which was a nice surprise as we have had some very thin ones in the past. It was very well presented and clean too. The nice touch was the bottle of wine left which went down very well. Overall though we had a lovely time and would definitely go back to Grassington.

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.
