  • "Lovely cottage - it was clean, comfortable and very well- equipped."

    A welcome gift of wine and lemon drizzle was literally the icing on the cake! Parking in Grassington can be a nightmare so having our own space was a bonus. We had to postpone our stay by a year and Sykes were helpful in sorting this out.

  • "The cottage was lovely with beautiful views on all sides."

    Convenient for all the village amenities but tucked away. Ample off-road parking for two cars which is invaluable in Grassington. Immaculately clean and very cosy and warm for our autumn visit. The owners had seemingly thought of everything and had emailed to us all the information we needed well before we arrived. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

  • "The Shippon cottage was perfect - well equipped, clean and comfortable."

    The location in Grassington was also ideal. We managed to get out and go on long walks every day to enjoy the beautiful Autumn colours of the Dales. It provided a really welcome break from the Corona crisis! I can't think of anything that the holiday lacked!

  • "This is at least third time I have been to this cottage and it never disappoints."

    It is clean, comfortable, cosy and well equipped. Ruth the owner has so got it right. Its like a home from home, The location is perfect, close to village centre and local amenities. Grassington is a lovely village, with a great range of restaurants. There are also footpaths in all directions within reasonable walking distance, two to four miles, and further if you are a hardened walker, and pubs/restaurants enroute for lunch. Our latest find was the Craven Arms at Appletreewick, fabulous food.

    Would use again and recommend Thanks Karen

    Thanks for the feedback and the suggestion about the logs. we hope when you say that it was "massively cold" you meant the weather! We always find the Shippon is cosy with or without the stove. We'll check out the central heating just in case. Property Owner

  • "The Shippon is a wonderful, cosy, spotless and well-equipped character cottage."

    Parking for one car just outside the front door, which is rare in Grassington, and really helps with unloading bags from the car. The cottage is furnished beautifully, and the kitchen is full of quality crockery. Thoughtful touches include a book and DVD collection, puzzles and jigsaws, and a fire with enough wood to keep you going for a chilly night.

    It had everything in it to make our stay enjoyable - even provided bird seed to feed the birds, of which there were plenty. You could sit in the mornings in bed, with a cuppa, and look across the Moors. I picked Lilley of the Valley, from the garden, which filled the lounge with their lovely fragrance.

  • "I have stayed at the Shippon on a previous occasion and was equally delighted both times."

    The cottage was clean, warm, beautifully furnished. It has outstanding views over the countryside. I was very well equipped and the owners seems to have thought of everything from a hand blender to a coffee grinder. I had taken my own just in case but these were necessary. I will certainly be returning again.

    Very spacious and comfortable. The only criticism as that the internet router kept failing and had to be reset several times a day. The owners should invest in a better router so that multiple devices can be used at the same time.

    It was possibly the best so far in our dealings with Sykes.The only problem now is that all being well we have to book an overnight stay somewhere on route as the journey with a picnic break is approx. 6/7 hours which for us is very tiring. Age may wither us but the spirit is strong.

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.
