  • "Lavender Cottage is a quaint cosy cottage in a very convenient location for the places we wanted to revisit, Grassington,Skipton, Pateley Bridge, Harrogate, Harlow Carr Gardens, Bolton Abbey and Fountains Abbey."

    The cottage has everything you need to make yourself comfortable and it was great to return there in the evenings to the log fire. We enjoyed our stay from the time we arrived to be greeted by a delicious cake and Prosecco to the day we had to reluctantly return home. Thank you Sophie.

  • "We have just had a very comfortable stay at Lavender cottage."

    It is very well situated for many places of interest and some good walks by the river starting in Grassington, which can walked to from the cottage. The cottage has everything you need and is warm and cosy after a day out in this beautiful area of the Yorkshire Dales.

    The newly decorated bathroom was lovely, in fact all the décor was very pleasant and it was well equipped for us to stay in and cook all weekend (we are not fussed for dining out).We contacted Sophie (the owner) before our holiday and she mentioned a plumber was coming to fit a bathroom radiator but he never showed up. It was ok because we didn't mind been disturbed which we mentioned, it wasn't too cold in the bathroom during our stay so all was ok.

  • "The location of the property is excellent."

    However as an international traveller and regular client of Sykes I was disappointed in this property. It was not of the usual standard we have experienced. The issue was about what was NOT disclosed such as washing machine and dryer in out house so needed to go out in snow, the fridge was in external porch so each time we needed to access the fridge we needed to go out in the cold. The carpets were grubby and towels were fairly poor quality. Overall dissappointing.

    I am sorry to hear you were disappointed with your stay at Lavender Cottage. We have taken on board your comments, due to the size of the property it is not possible for the washing machine and tumble dryer to be located inside the kitchen. The cottage has recently been re-decorated, with new curtains, towels and blinds and a brand new bathroom. Once again I am sorry you were disappointed with your stay.

  • "We had a lovely long weekend at Lavender Cottage, it was beautiful and a real home from home."

    Really great cottage and we really appreciated the wood burner and access to lots of wood as it was very chilly, the wine, milk and home baked cake was so nice to arrive to. Perfect size for 2 people and our Labrador. The only thing I found slightly misleading was that the listing says shower over bath, there is a shower head but there is no attachment so you can only have a bath, and you did need to push the boost button for enough hot water for two baths. Other than that we had a fantastic stay, as I said the cottage was superb and cosy and it was in such a great location. The butchers in Grassington is a must for anyone wanting to cook in!! We were very happy and we would definitely look to stay in Lavender Cottage again.

  • "We loved the cottage and had a great time relaxing there after exploring the Dales everyday."

    Thanks for making the dog feel welcome too, this was very important to us. One suggestion we would make is for the hot water system to be updated. We quickly worked out that for both of us to use the bath, we had to reheat the water which took an extra hour. In the grand scheme of things it's not a major issue. The water pressure wasn't great on one occasion too. This didn't spoil our holiday at all and wouldn't discourage us from recommending the cottage.

About the location


Grassington 1 mile; Skipton 7 miles.

Threshfield is a small village in Upper Wharfedale bordering the nearby villages of Grassington, Linton, Hetton, Cracoe and Rylstone, home of the famous ‘Calendar Girls’. Threshfield is a thriving local community. A few minutes drive is Grassington, one of the most charming villages in the Yorkshire Dales National Park, where you will find traditional stone cottages, galleries, restaurants and shops, which are clustered around the cobbled market place, plus a monthly farmers' market provides a mouthwatering range of organic and homemade local produce. Visitors can experience the delight of both the Grassington Festival held in June and the Dickensian Festival during December – both well worth a visit. 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, the Priory and the famous “Strid Walk”, whilst a little further away is the elegant town of Ilkley, overlooked by the famous Ilkley Moor, plus up dale are Kettlewell and Buckden boasting spectacularly beautiful limestone scenery. With many other beauty spots scattered throughout Wharfedale, Threshfield 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.
