  • "This is our second visit to Manna Cottage it is a lovely cosy place with everything done to a high standard."

  • "Very well equipped and clean cottage, in a fabulous location."

    We followed the instructions regarding rubbish, but it was apparent the bin hadn't been emptied for some time as it was absolutely full. Otherwise perfect. Shame nowhere to sit outside as we had stunning weather, but we managed very well. Thank you for letting us share your home.

  • "Great cottage for a couple."

    Well equipped and in a good location. Only negative was builder’s vans blocking the gunnel and parking space on our first day. After speaking to them they kept it clear for the rest of stay.

  • "The picture of the cottage was confusing as it showed the front while main access was via the back door as the front garden did not belong to the property."

    This meant instructions were to first cottage on the left down the path way/road whereas the picture indicated the property was on the right. It didn't cause a problem finding the cottage but was confusing when viewing online.

  • "We loved our stay at Manna cottage, the location was perfect in a quite cobbled side road and less than 100 yards to nearest pub."

    We were surprised at how clean the cottage was and we were not expecting a modern shower A perfect place to stay and much better than a hotel room.

  • "Clean and cosy cottage."

    Spacious lounge with efficient gas fire for chilly evenings (had to get on hands and knees for controls). The bedroom was also spacious with good quality beddng on comfy king size bed. Shower was good, always plenty of hot water, fluffy towels. The kitchen was very small (half width counter), but we did manage, it had all necessary appliances - microwave, fridge, washer/dryer (outside) and plenty of crockery/cutlery. Parking immediately outside the door was convenient, we only used the car one rainy day to visit Skipton. We loved walking from the door. The owners obviously look after this property very well. We hope to return.

  • "Manna Cottage was an ideal place to stay when visiting Grassington and the Yorkshire Dale's."

    It was extremely clean and well maintained. All furnishings were of a high standard. We would definitely use it again and recommend it to others.

  • "This is a gem of a cottage - excellent location, very clean and comfortable, well equipped."

    So good to find somewhere which has all you need to cook with and plenty of cutlery and crockery. Good bed and shower. Wifi worked well. Warm and cosy but with plenty of a space. Owner helpfully made contact beforehand. From the visitors book we can see people have come back many times and we can see why. We hope to return.

  • "We enjoyed the location and the freedom of self catering."

    The cottage was excellent and was fully equipped, it was exceptionally clean and contained everything necessary for home from home and for the perfect holiday. I would certainly stay at this property again and would book through Sykes for a similar break in the future.

  • "This is a cracking little cottage right in the heart of the village, what you get is a typical miners cottage converted for modern living."

    Spacious and comfortable for two people and ideal for a holiday to explore the yorkshire dales and with parking as a bonus.The only negative is the difficulty sometimes in lighting the fire which takes a bit of effort to get the pilot light lit but with perseverance it's not much of an issue.

  • "Had a lovely holiday in Grassington, the cottage was superb, very central, private parking and lovely comfy bed."

    Frequented the Forresters Arms, very friendly staff, good food and only a few yards from the cottage. Will be back.

  • "Nice small cottage, well positioned in the middle of the village."

    There are some negative points. The kitchen is tiny with limited work space, the settee in the living room is small and very soft you can't sit on it for long, there are alternative chairs provided. There isn't any outside space. This is clear in the description but what isn't clear is the garden in front of the cottage belongs to the next door neighbour, who hangs her washing over the railings in front of the living room window. There is parking for one car but access is tight and you have to reverse out on to the road, this can prove tricky with on coming cars and pedestrians, there is alternative parking in the village. This cottage is a good base for exploring the Dales both by car and on foot.

    Exceedingly nice soft furnishings. Nice complimentary tea, coffee, sugar, milk and biscuits very welcome after a long drive. Walks around the Dales just on the doorstep. Grassington has got lots of character and friendly people.

The property

A delightful stone-built terraced cottage in the heart of Grassington, one of the most popular villages in the Yorkshire Dales.

An 18th century former lead miner's cottage, it provides an ideal base for a small family or couple wishing to get away from it all and enjoy a wonderful break in this ever-popular area.

In a quiet corner of the village yet only a stone’s throw from the vibrant centre of the village, the cottage is packed with character and charm; guests will be delighted by a warm and cosy sitting room with a gas-fired stove set in a beautiful stone surround, as well as a lovely window seat, exposed stone walls and original ceiling beams; an ideal room in which to relax and unwind.

The small kitchen adjoins the sitting room and leads out to a quiet lane.

Upstairs, the charming king-size double bedroom boasts pretty views over the adjoining gardens and across the village.

There's also a separate shower room available.

This cosy and romantic cottage is just a one minute walk from the famous village centre, with its old curiosity shops, excellent local pubs, good eating establishments and, of course, the old cobbled square where the annual Dickensian weekends are a real show-stopper.

Add to this the annual Grassington Festival and the close proximity of many of the Dales' famous tourist locations and you've a holiday cottage not to be missed.

A cottage and village full of character and charm, certainly a great combination and one 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.
