The Shippon description

Holiday home
The Shippon is a welcoming character cottage in the heart of the popular Dales village of Grassington. The cottage has a super king-size double room, which can be offered as a twin on request, a double and single bedroom, a bathroom, ground floor cloakroom, kitchen with dining area, and a sitting room with woodburning stove. Outside is off road parking for two cars, and a side patio garden with furniture. The Shippon makes an ideal property for exploring both the village, with its annual festival and pretty village trails, and the hills and dales surrounding this popular tourist spot.

Grassington is a lovely village in the Yorkshire Dales National Park, on the River Wharfe, home to traditional stone cottages and a cobbled market place. Down dale is Bolton Abbey and up dale are Kettlewell and Buckden with wonderful limestone scenery. Enjoy great walking and explore Bronte Country and York, within easy driving distance.

From heather-clad moors and limestone scars, to market towns and the steady pace of country life - the sublime Dales await you! Where else in Britain is it as satisfying to sit and do nothing as it is to explore the numerous pursuits on offer?

Best cottage we have ever stayed in - this was our third visit.
Ms Lynch

Loved this property - it was beautifully presented with a wonderful fire, and everything you could want and more.

It felt like a home from home; very comfortable and warm in the unexpected snow and hail! It had good attention to detail and a lovely design. In a great location, right on the Dales Way and close to the village. There were lovely views.

A nice quiet cottage just a couple of minutes from the village. It was a good idea to have WiFi, this came in very handy as mobile reception was poor. The views from the cottage were fantastic, and there was a good bus service if you wanted to see around the area without driving.

Lovely walks, lovely area and a beautiful cottage to relax in.
Mr Morgan

Really enjoyed our stay, the furnishings were first class, there was everything you could want in the cottage and it was very central. A very warm, comfortable cottage. Would certainly recommend The Shippon to family and friends.

The cottage was perfect, we can't wait to return.
Mr Parmenter

It was a beautifully appointed cottage with amazing views over Grassington and beyond. The fixtures and fittings were very good quality and the duvet on our bed was filled with duck down and very cosy. Everywhere was spotless and well-maintained with beautiful curtains in every room. It was easy walking district to the shops and restaurants in Grassington so no need to use the car.
Mr MacKenzie

Mrs Lempereur

I just want to say how fantastic the cottage is and how spotlessly clean everything was. We will certainly stay again in the future.

This cottage is top rate, well appointed and immaculate. Two double bedrooms and a single (my bed the single was very comfortable) A large well equipped Kitchen/Dining area and a comfortable sitting room well stocked with books, DVDs and games. A modern bathroom with bath and shower over and an additional WC downstairs. Wi Fi connection good and a telephone to receive calls. Nicely situated just out of the village centre which is a few minutes walk away. Beautiful views from upstairs and a patio leading from the kitchen which would be useful if the weather is good. Parking for two small cars is a bonus in a village where car parking space is hard to come by.
