    Blacksmith Cottage sleeping up to 2 guests

    A beautiful ground floor studio, formerly a blacksmith's workshop, located in the heart of Grassington, one of the most popular villages in the Yorkshire Dales. Lovingly restored and individually styled, Blacksmith Cottage has been elegantly furnished to provide quality accommodation in a wonderful location. The property offers superb facilities over one floor with a well-equipped kitchen, an open plan living area and a delightful king-size bed and chaise longue. A perfect romantic retreat or simply somewhere to get away from it all and enjoy Dales life at its finest, Blacksmith Cottage is a minute's walk from the village's wide range of shops and pubs, while Grassington's Dickensian weekends and festivals are not to be missed! The surrounding area is a walker's paradise, offering beautiful walks along the river to Linton Falls, as well as more challenging walks into the nearby hills. A superb holiday base in a great location. Note: Blacksmith Cottage can be booked with Ref 2832 to sleep 4.

    With traditional stone cottages and shops clustered around the cobbled market place, Grassington is one of the most charming villages in the Yorkshire Dales National Park and offers exceptional shopping facilities for a settlement of its size. With a monthly farmer's market offering a mouth-watering range of organic and home-made produce from farms nearby, it's easy for visitors to discover real, local food. This is also an excellent area for walking with the River Wharfe and extensive Grass Woods to the north offering stunning scenery as a backdrop. Bolton Abbey with its Abbey ruins, the Priory and the famous "Strid Walk" is close by and offers a number of interesting sights as does the elegant town of Ilkley, situated in the shadow of the famous Ilkley Moor.

    Mr Maclocklin – 1 Aug 2019
    " Good location for visiting nearby tourist attractions. Good shopping experience. Warning for the future: It is probable that parking restrictions will be brought into force in the village. This will mean that parking in the centre will be restricted to 2 hours maximum on parking meters. Long stay parking will be either at the top of the village or the National park car park at foot of the village (charges apply), both car parks are approx. 10 minutes away. "
    Mr Thornton – 1 Jun 2019
    " The accommodation was very good, clean and comfortable. "
    Mr Murphy – 1 Jan 2019
    " 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 , in my opinion lacking in several aspects, will make me thing long and hard before any repeat booking. "
    Mrs Noble – 1 Dec 2018
    " Cosy on a evening. Everything you needed at hand. Cleanliness was of high standard too. Tv could of done to be up graded poor reception on all channels. And one side of the enormous bed had seen better days husband was sliding out at one side. Would recommend to friends. Thank you for a enjoyable stay. Village was wonderfull too. "
    Mrs Alexander – 1 Oct 2018
    " As is actually a cottage split into 2 it was very noisy when there was people up stairs. "
    Mr Ibbotson – 1 Jun 2018
    " 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. "

    " The village was lovely and located in a nice part of North Yorkshire. We will be back sometime soon. "

    " Blacksmith Cottage was nicely furnished and the bottle of wine waiting for us on arrival was a friendly touch. Its location next to the fish and chip shop and a few yards from the centre of the village was ideal. The bed was comfortable and the accommodation was very quiet - the chip shop is only open 4 or 5 days a week and closes by 7 at the latest. There was no-one in the upstairs rental so I don't know whether you might be disturbed by people walking around overhead. The owners had left basic essentials, e.g. washing powder, kitchen roll, toilet roll, plasters (v. useful one evening). The only downside was that it was a bit cramped. The bed took up a lot of the living/bedroom and if one partner gets up a lot earlier than the other, there isn't anywhere very comfortable to sit and read the paper etc. "

    " Had a really wonderful week in this quaint cottage. I was very impressed by the quality of the interior, it was tastefully decorated with nice period furnishings. I felt completely at home as soon as I arrived. The whole place was clean and fresh. The owner has paid great attention to detail and it pays off marvelously. The bottle of wine is a lovely touch and reinforces the owners' desire to ensure you have a good time. The cottage is well placed for the town's amenities as it is just off the main square. There are three nice pub/restaurants within a hundred yards and a few yards further on there is a convenience store and a newsagent as well as gift shops etc. This was my first cottage holiday and it is going to be very difficult to better the experience - Thank you "

    " In a very central position in Grassington. The studio is small and very well equipped,although may have too much furniture and unnecessary ornaments. The bathroom was a little chilly. On arrival, the remote control for TV was missing. We contacted the owner who suggested we look under the be bed! She contacted us later to say the previous tenant had taken it home with her. No replacement was offered. As we were only there for 3 nights it never appeared. "

    "Very comfortable, and despite not being the largest place it was well equipped, well decorated and actually we started there with two adults 1 child and a dog and there was enough room. The separate kitchen and space for a table and chairs where nice to have. Definitely stay here again!!"

    " This is an absolutely delightful studio set right in the heart of Grassington. I booked it as a Christmas present for my husband and we both had a great time. We stayed there in a week when the temperatures were below zero and snow lay on the ground. It was very comfortable and cosy. There is one room with a large bed and a couple of sofas and chairs. The kitchen and dining table are around the corner. It is extremely well stocked. All the usuals but also books, DVDs, guides as well as tea and coffee. Even a bottle of wine!! The location is ideal. At that time of year we were able to park the car in the square. Within a few yards were three pubs, a hotel with restaurant, an indian take-away and a fish and chip shop. We ate at all of them!! We also bought cakes from the cafe opposite the cottage. They were all good. We also visited the Old Hall Inn at Threshfield (perfect for fish and chips) and had the tasting menu at The Angel at Hetton. Lovely flat in a great village. Would highly recommend. "

    " We stayed in this little cottage in Aug/Sept 2014 and found it to be very charming and well equipped. The location is fabulous for lots of walking in the Yorkshire Dales and Grassington is a lovely place to be based as it is a lovely friendly village. There are three hotels that allow dogs and the food is acceptable pub food. If there was one downside, I would struggle to find one but it would be that it is a studio and quite small. However, the layout is very well done and there is a huge bed. "

    " We live relatively close by and as I work from home wanted to relax and be away from my working/home environment. Staying at blacksmith cottage made me think why do we need big houses and lots of clutter that we never use. It was compact, very well equipped, extremely clean and we were welcomed by a lovely bottle of wine. The weather was kind to us and we did what we planned to do...absolutely nothing. It was wonderful and I would highly recommend a stay here. Perhaps next time we will try lotties loft upstairs! "

    " The cottage was beautifully furnished and had everything we needed for a relaxing weekend break. The location cannot be faulted as you are only a few steps away from the village square with it's many shops, pubs and restaurants - we would definitely recommend the cottage "

    " No problem to find the key. The home has been furnitured with much love for the detail. Well equipped. The backyard would probably have looked friendlier if the weather had been better. The landscape around is great, especially the Dales. Ideal start for traveling, walking, sightseeing. We enjoyed our visit to very much. "

    " Fantastic instructions re arrival.The cottage was a large studio with en suite, but very cosy and sweet. We used it as a base for our walking holiday, but it was lovely to come back to in the evening. The cottage is in the centre of Grassington and ideally placed to stroll home from one of the many pubs and restaurants. Grassington also has a small supermarket, bakers (great first thing in the morning to stock up with drinks and sandwiches before our walk) and numerous delightful gift shops. The only slight problem was that the cottage was on a narrow hill and it was very difficult to get the car down. As there was no parking, the car had to be parked elsewhere and you had to walk to the cottage. I could see this would be a problem to anyone who had difficulty in walking too far. Overall an excellent place to stay and very dog friendly. "
