    Saturday morning 8 30am it started again, hammering, grinding and stealth saw going. So again went out not the relaxing break we wanted. Not what we had come away for.!! Should have been informed at time of booking Such a shame because it is, a beautiful cottage.

    Good morning Trevor. Thank you for your feedback. I am sorry you experienced problems with parking and noise. I was not aware that work of that nature was taking place, hence my being unable to advise in advance. There are three customer experience contact numbers in our welcome pack, myself, my wife and our Housekeeper. I would encourage any guests that have any concerns to contact any of the team and we will be 100% committed to finding solutions and helping you have the best break possible at Sunny Mount Cottage. I will call you personally to discuss this. i have now made contact with the property owners next door and confirmed that work was of a temporary nature, is due to end any day and they have assured me that their contractors have been notified of your concerns. Sorry it was not perfect this time and we hope you will come back in future. Darren (owner). Property Owner

  • "Cottage is in an excellent position, just back from the village centre but still close to everything."

    Main bed extremely comfy and the power shower very refreshing! Nicely refurbished and warm cottage - if anything a little TOO warm as we couldn’t work out how to turn some of the radiators off. That meant having to keep the bedroom windows wide open which in turn meant we were disturbed by noise of passing traffic outside from very early morning most days and the church bells. Nice to be able to open just the top of the front door during the day to increase the fresh air flowing into the cottage. There was no mention of the relatively steep staircase in the website listing and also into the main bathroom as well as in and out of the back door to the yard - I have a knee injury and had I been aware of these, I probably wouldn’t have booked this venue; the listing really should mention this. Living room warm & reasonably comfortable but needs better lighting, we found it difficult to read once it got later than around 8pm. Kitchen facilities good but so small that only one of us could be in there at any one time!

    Reviewed by Tracey2.8Jun 2022

  • "No mention of steep stairs and tricky step arrangement at top."

    Our biggest disappointment was the level of lighting in the lounge. This was not good enough for easy reading or for consulting maps. Overall we were pleased with the cottage as everything was high spec and worked well.

  • "Sunny Mount is a beautiful cottage with everything you could need for a stay there."

    It is very well positioned within Grassington with the bonus of private off road parking outside the door. The bed was probably the most comfortable we have been in (we were going to look at the make and type of mattress but forgot!!), All of the fittings and utensils were of very high quality, goose quilt and pillows, Next plates etc. And above all else it was very reasonably priced. If you're going to stay in Grassington look here first. Highly recommend it.

  • "As on the two previous occasions when we have stayed at Sunny Mount the cottage was welcoming, warm, and spotlessly clean on arrival."

    This is surely the result of the work of Mo the house manager who should be congratulated. Sunny Mount is well equipped and well located for exploring Upper Wharfedale with many walks accessible from the door.

  • "A lovely cottage in an ideal position right in the middle of the town."

    Although the cottage is small it is well planned and has everything you need for a short break, with parking and a garden. Tastefully decorated (loved the starry sky panel in the bedroom) and comfortable for 3 but would be a struggle for 4 due to a lack of seating. The staircase is very steep and there are several steps and different levels inside the property which could be a problem for the elderly. A bedside lamp would be useful in the second bedroom. I would definitely recommend this property though.

    Particularly the fabulous shower and the most comfortable bed ever! A very festive welcome greeted us with fairy lights round the front door and a Christmas tree in the sitting room. Grassington village looked magical the houses all decorated and twinkling with fairy lights. The location of the cottage is excellent, shopping and traditional pubs just 2 minutes away. With plenty of walks straight out of the front door this is the ideal,location to explore this part of the dales, stunning views in every direction. We loved it all. Just one thing - a bedside light would be a good idea in the small bedroom.

The property

Sunny Mount Cottage is a delightful, mid-terrace cottage resting in the picturesque market town of Grassington, in the heart of the ever-popular Yorkshire Dales.

It is wonderfully presented throughout, with bright colour schemes and plush furnishings, making the most of an ideal setting.

Share this homely setup with your loved ones, lounging in the sitting room before the electric fire, with a Smart TV to provide on-demand entertainment.

Move into the kitchen to discover all you need for a self-catered stay; you can whip up a home-cooked meal in the electric oven and hob and wash any muddy clothing straight away in the washing machine.

Boasting two well-presented bedrooms, including one king-size and one single with an additional pull out bed, along with a shower room and additional cloakroom, Sunny Mount Cottage provides a pleasant layout for couples or small families.

Both bedrooms have a variety of furnishings for you to store your personal belongings, with quaint windows allowing plenty of natural lighting.

Outside, there is a small courtyard area which is a real suntrap throughout the day, perfect for enjoying the warm weather with a favourite drink.

Grassington is a small market town that feels like a village, home to a bustling and cobbled market square, lined with quirky shops and boutiques specialising in gifts and arts, as well as a superb selection of eateries from restaurants and bistros to pretty cafés and local delis.

Adding to this, the town hosts a monthly farmers market selling the finest fresh produce, along with the annual Grassington Music & Arts Festival where visitors can enjoy live shows and entertainment.

Walkers will be interested in the 80-mile long-distance Dales Way footpath which runs from Ilkley to the charming village of Kettlewell and the peak Great Whernside, finishing all the way in Bowness-on-Windermere.

There is also the beautiful scenery of the Nidderdale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty which is best explored on a thrilling cycle ride, making this an ideal base for outdoor enthusiasts.

For days out, head to Skipton to see the 12th century fortress of Skipton Castle, visit the National Trust Owned East Riddlesden Hall or tour the White Scar Cave, the longest show cave in England!
