Blacksmith Cottage Pet-Friendly Cottage description

Holiday home
Formerly a blacksmith's workshop, this cottage is located in the heart of Grassington - one of the most popular villages in the Yorkshire Dales. This beautiful ground floor studio has been well furnished to provide elegant accommodation in a fabulous spot. This is a great location for a couple on a romantic break or for a pair of friends to enjoy the stunning scenery of North Yorkshire. Just a minute's walk from the village centre, the cottage is well placed for local amenities and activities within the area such as those at Bolton Abbey, the Yorkshire Dales National Park and Grassington itself.

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.

From heather-clad moors and limestone scars, to market towns and the steady pace of country life - the sublimeDales 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?

We found that the cottage beautifully kitted out and very comfortable in every way. The bed in particular was wonderfully comfortable.

A home from home in a great location. Grassington is a lovely village with enough shops, pubs cafes, some good walks and friendly locals. Blacksmith Cottage is central and has all the facilities needed for a stay here - well equipped kitchen and huge bed with a small, enclosed patio, which is very handy if you have a hound with you.

This was a very comfortable studio in an excellent location. It was well furnished and extremely well equipped. The owners supplied more than one would expect. I would highly recommend. Snow lay on the ground for our week there and it was always warm and cosy.

We loved the location of Blacksmiths Cottage near the centre of Grassington, a lovely Dales Village. There were plenty of facilities, pubs, restaurants and shops to make our stay enjoyable. We are keen walkers, and despite the bad weather on most days we were able to take 3 to 4 hour walks directly from the cottage. Altogether a memorable and enjoyable stay.

Clearly a great location, close to village centre, and a great plus having a BBQ grill out back. The bed is very comfortable and just fits the bill after a day's walking/cycling. A cosy and memorable stay.
January 2015
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.
November 2015
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

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.
May 2013
We chose this rental on the basis of the favourable reviews, and expected slightly better than we got. It was fine in terms of size, and very convenient for the village. But there were too many things not working or in need of repair - we called the owner who retuned the TV for us and replaced the five light bulbs that were not working. But the radio was hopeless, there was broken shelf in the fridge and the fitted sheets didn't fit the bed. So it would benefit from a bit of a health check and improvement before the season really gets going.

An excellent cottage in a great location!
January 2014
The location of the cottage is excellent , very cosy cottage, We went on some great walks around grassington and to come back and relax in evening was wonderfull. huge very compy bed as well, lovely village, if you don't want to cook, plenty of places to eat out. .loved it that much already booked another weeks stay. what more can I say...
March 2015
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.
June 2014
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!
May 2011
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
September 2011
it was in a good spot in grassington really nice and homely everything in it you could need only downfall was very noisey people above us but you cant help that
July 2012
This studio apartment is compact, very clean but with too much space taken up by furniture and knick knacks. However the kitchen was very well equipped and stocked and the bed huge and comfortable and the bathroom clean and well presented. The sitting out area was very disappointing, full of weeds and garden furniture dirty and unusable which was a shame as we were there for one of the rare warm dry spells. It is ideally situated for the village and for walking the dales. Parking to unload and load vehicle can be difficult.
March 2011
my husband and I went for his 60th birthday (our dog also came)...we went dec/jan and the xmas tree was a lovely touch... we enjoyed every minute... cosy..well equipped..comfortable and very clean.. situated right in the middle of the village...we will certainly be back...
December 2009
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.
December 2009
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.
December 2009
All drinking mugs were chipped or cracked & base sheet on bed was soiled I had to wash it & put back on bed but other than that the place is in a lovely position & the local people were great
