Perfect for a grown-up getaway in the heart of Wharfedale, this gorgeous cottage has great cycling and walking routes on the doorstep. With a two-bedroom, two-bathroom layout, a restful lounge with a wood burner and a courtyard garden with secure storage, it’s a high-end hideaway within 400 metres of Grassington’s lively village centre. With its stone cottages, cobbled square and choice of independent eateries and stores, Grassington is a must-do destination within the Yorkshire Dales National Park.

Located along a quiet residential street at the northern edge of the village, this charming cottage offers the opportunity to fully experience life as a local. Step through the front door and straight into a lounge that features a fashionably cool colour palette and a wood burner that will cast a warm glow over your together time. A small hallway leads into the kitchen/diner, where all the must-haves of home – including a range-style cooker – are complemented by laundry equipment in the old pantry. When it’s time to retire, cottage-style stairs lead to the two bedrooms, each with its own Smart TV; the first is king-size with an en-suite shower room, and the second is a double. Completing the accommodation is a beautiful bathroom with a free-standing bath. For a breath of fresh country air, open the stable door from the kitchen into the enclosed courtyard garden at the rear of the property – with patio-style paving, a secure outbuilding for bicycle storage and bistro-style furniture, it’s a fabulous spot for al fresco refreshments.

Enjoy gentle strolls around Grassington or step out for a scenic hike along the Dales Way, which is right on your doorstep – the long-distance route reaches from the town of Ilkley to the shores of Windermere in the Lake District. For information on more great walks, cycle routes and activities, visit the National Park Visitor Centre in Grassington – outstanding beauty spots close by include Bolton Abbey (10 miles) and Malham Cove (15.5 miles). For a complete change of scene, head to the spa town of Harrogate (23 miles) or vibrant Skipton (9.5 miles), home to one of the most complete and best-preserved medieval castles in England.

Comfort and location. Ripleys Rest is a warm, clean and comfortable cottage on a quiet road, a quick easy walk to the lovely village. We loved the comfortable armchairs and smart TV when we werent enjoying the 1940s weekend in the village. We walked part of the Dalesway which is accessed right next to the house. There is very little parking on the Read moreroad in front of the house but we were lucky enough to find a space in the side lane as suggested by the helpful owners. Hide

A top quality, comfortable and cosy cottage. So convenient for the short walk to many eateries and shops in Grassington. It was a delight to have so many amenities close by. You can complete many walks from the door and leave the car behind. Parking is a bit tight in the narrow streets which no-one else mentions. However, we did manage to get parkeRead mored on the grass verge as suggested by the owner. A real home from home, definitely worth staying again as so much more to see and do. Hide
