Wonderful base for a holiday to tour the whole of Yorkshire Dales and a great holiday for walking with dogs.

Monks Cottage is a beautiful old property with lots of charm. We would highly recommend Monks Cottage to anyone looking to stay in the Yorkshire Dales.

The cottage was warm and cosy. We liked being next to the excellent, friendly pub serving good food. The cottage, pub and the beautiful village of Grassington were all extremely dog friendly.

The Cottage was warm and comfortable with an enclosed garden for the dogs. There were easy walks from the cottage with lovely views of the dales.

Lovely little cottage sited a few miles from many of the points of interest. Very quiet and peaceful, little street lighting, the fire added a lovely warm glow in the dark corner.

The cottage was warm and cosy, the bed and sofa were very comfortable. Well equipped with all that was needed, even WiFi! Lovely enclosed garden which the dogs loved, the pub next door was very welcoming - even with two big dogs. Skipton market is well worth a visit, as is Skipton itself with its variety of shops, not forgetting a walk along the canal. We had a lovely, relaxing week and would recommend the cottage.

Everything at Monks Cottage was lovely. Next door to a pub which serves really nice food and the staff were very friendly. Very relaxing weekend in a beautiful location.

Considering the proximity of the pub we still felt 'remote' enough. The heating had been turned up due to the weather and we were constantly cosy. All the staff that we met were very friendly. We didn't get to walk because of the weather but we baked bread in the cottage instead!

This is a well positioned cottage next door to an excellent pub which serves excellent food and beer. It is a cosy cottage with plenty of privacy and enough room for two large dogs, including a private garden. Lovely fire to keep you warm on cold, snowy evenings.

The location of the cottage was very good. The cottage was cosy warm, we didn't have to light the wood burner. The Old Hall Inn pub next door was a friendly welcoming place with very good food.

The fantastic character of the building speaks for itself. Beautiful location.

The holiday was very dog friendly and relaxing. The staff at the Old Hall Inn could not do enough for us and the meals were excellent. We will definitely be returning as the surroundings and property were lovely. I would highly recommend this holiday.

The cottage was gorgeous. In a beautiful setting and warm cosy to return to after cold and sometimes wet walks. The staff were remarkable and nothing was too much trouble. We ate in the pub on a number of occasions and the food was fantastic, huge choice and wonderfully presented. We loved this cottage, it gave us the freedom and comfort we were looking for whilst also the luxury. I would not hesitate to recommend this cottage and am definitely hoping to return in the near future. Perfect!

Booked here for three nights, looking up on TripAdvisor, I found it worrying and very strange, that this cottage had no reviews at all from Sep 2014, on starting my review it said your stay has to be verified by the owner before the review is published,, arrrrrrr now this explains it, I do not have a problem being verified which I have never had to do before, but obviously the owner by checking the name and the dates will know that the review will not be very favorable to say the least because of my complaints on our say, and might ignore verification, THE REVIEW On arriving at the pub / cottage , the area outside was filthy with a dish full of cigarette ends, see pic,, the log burner wasn't lit as requested as it was quite cold I decided to have a hot bath,,,, or not, the water was Luke warm, called to the pub to tell the barman who was as helpful as he could be and said he would get someone to look at it, because things were not looking great I thought I would have a glass of wine to calm me down, I took 13 glasses from the cupboard, each one of them absolutely filthy see pic,,, no wifi either,,,,an off duty fire man who is the repair man tried his best with both wifi and water, but it didn't really improve,, the logs for the fire were left outside so soaking wet and wouldn't light, the windows were that damaged that you could see through them see pic,,,, I know its an old building but glass isn't protected by grade 2 listing buildings, we complained to the manager a young girl,, who was very apologetic, we rang hotels in the village as were that upset, but they were full, my sons were having a party on the Saturday at home, so was stuck there really. I explained how upset I was we also rang Sykes cottages who we booked and told them and the manager that we would be leaving early, she promised a refund for the missed night and all the problem,, decided to try the shower instead, old fashion box on the wall, which had a mind of its own which went through a cycle of freezing to scalding, the cottage has an enclosed garden, on venturing onto the grass to get a signal on my phone, the garden was absolutely full of dog excrement, it was everywhere, see pic,,,, the hoover was absolutely full of dog hairs, see pic ,,, have mentioned the word cottage a few times, this isn't a cottage its a very dark unwelcoming shed, we haven't heard anything from the owner, but sykes cottages have been very good,,, please don't go here

The accommodation and staff were fantastic. No complaints.

Absolutely fantastic. The self contained Monks Cottage was wonderful, warm cosy and perfect. The bed was expensive and great quality. The pub The Old Hall Inn was amazing. The food was fantastic and the owner and his staff couldn't have been more polite and helpful. The New Years Eve banquet was just out of this world, like something you would imagine on Henry 8ths table. Just loved every minute of our stay.

An absolutely lovely holiday cottage which lacked nothing in making our stay very enjoyable and being dog friendly was an added bonus.

The cottage itself needed some TLC and then would have been really nice. No draining board/stained T towels/cobwebs and old bedding. There was a bench/table in the garden which had rotted to the point it was quite dangerous. However the main gripe was the extractor fan from the pub. which was just at the back of the garden It belched out acrid fumes at least twice a day so we had to keep the door closed. The situation of the cottage was fantastic for experiencing the North dales and we did have a meal at the Old Hall Inn one evening which we really enjoyed. Overall we enjoyed our stay but were disappointed having spent quite a lot of money the standards were poor to say the least.
April 2014
We stayed for 3 nights, arrived after a busy week and walked through the door and just relaxed! The Old Hall Inn is on the doorstep and was very welcoming, dogs included with fine ales, fabuluous food and friendly people. The cottage has all you need with a luxurious feel and so quiet and restful we had a fantastic time and were sorry to leave.
April 2014
Dog friendy cottage with a faint doggy ordour around sofa area, might have been sheep skin rug in front of the log burner. Otherwise a really nice cottage for two plus one puppy. Kitchen area lovely and clean looking on the garden and back of pub. Too cold and damp to enjoy the garden during our visit but sure its would be nice during summer. The open plan design means all heat goes upstairs so bedroom was toasty warm. The pub has some really nice meals and i am sure they would delivery to the door if asked. Would go again

Just returned from a weeks stay in Monks Cottage. Excellent Location for walking right from the doorstep. Made to look very modern inside, Lovely Kitchen, nice furnishings, nice log burning fire which we used once. we had to have the Central Heating on most mornings and evenings due to lack of light getting inside and the stone floor. The downside for us was because it was very dark inside, we had to have the lights on all the time even though it was sunny outside. The cobwebs everywhere made it feel quite dirty,although it wasn,t really that bad. The entrance door is very close to the Pub kitchen door which made it a little less private if you wanted to sit out. The grate outside the back door kept backing up causing a horrid smell. The fans from the kitchen are going all the time. The area is outstanding though, a few nice pubs within easy walking distance. Walks all very well signposted. Very close to Linton Falls and village which was gorgeous. Visited Malham Cove and Bolton Abbey did the Strid Walk. Skipton not far, lovely place. Grassington just a short walk away either by road or through the fields by the falls. We will definitely go back to the area but will try and find somewhere in Grassington itself. The Cottage is also described as having Wi-fi, it wasn,t working,we couldn,t even get a signal on our phone all week.

Wanted a week away from the hassles of work and a pet friendly location and that is exactly the experience I had.Cottage was perfect size for 1 or a couple and had all the facilities needed for self catering although I tended to eat in the pub or have food conveniently delivered to the cottage (they even provided very nice turkey meat for my dog!!)Cottage was spotlessly clean with good quality bath and bed linen.My only complaint would be that the menu was limited and by the end of my stay I'd had enough scallops to last me the year and I craved a juicy fillet steak but the ingredients were good quality and well presented and to be fair had i requested a steak they would probably have sorted something out as the head chef who I gave my key back to on departure was a really nice guy.Would happily book again.

We Booked Monks cottage for a Post Christmas break, and it was Perfect, The cottage is very cosy with Log burner and lots of wood, we used the log burner most nights and it warms the full cottage up in no time. You can also use the central heating and we did on only early mornings. The cottage was so cosy I had a bit of trouble getting the wife out to explore the fantastic surrounding area, When we did get out to explore one of the places we visited was the very close by Linton Falls, beautiful waterfalls and rapids, you can walk over the top of them via a wooden bridge (take your camera) also Skipton is well worth a visit anytime it dose'nt have to be market day. you will be spoilt for choice for food as you are surrounded by lots of little villages all with at least one pub serving beautiful food, The cottage is set in the grounds of the old inn pub at Theshfield so 20 yds from your from door is one of the best pubs in the area, Overall everything was fantastic we already planning to go back same time next year.

Beautiful cottage private garden which we loved and our dog was so happy .very good location with excellent restaurant right next door
August 2013
Just returned from a weeks holiday in this beautiful cottage. We found everyone very helpful and have nothing to complain about. Perfect enclosed garden that our puppy had great fun running around in. Ok the kitchen fan does blow into the garden but the owners have tried their best to mask it off with trees, it wouldn't put me off returning! The wifi problem to me just meant we returned to an old fashioned way of communicating lol, it did work in a certain area of the pub. We ate one night in the pub and had fish and chip takeaway from them another night, fab piece of fish! Can highly recommend the Indian restaurant in grassington, we had takeaway but it was one of the best I've ever had. Great holiday, we didn't want to leave.

Stayed here on the 3rd may for one week. on arrival we were promised as it was our honeymoon bottle of wine not Recieved!! Were given keys the person showing us round ( later realized it was bar staff) didnt even know our names or how long we were staying at the property. We did mention it was our honeymoon with the reply "oh ok " No info on where to eat or any walks , attractions ect . We found all that in the Inn next door which is very clever as you then feel obliged to eat and drink there menu,food and drinks very good but was very expensive. Only information in the cottage was the breakfast and main menu for the Inn next door. The accomodation was clean . No freezer so couldnt even do a proper shop for the week or have ice in our drinks which would have been lovely for our cozy nights in by the fire. Also had to pop next door to the Inn to borrow a potato masher. The garden is not private woke up quite a few mornings with someone passing through the garden and i think it was a domestic member of staff letting her dog use the grass as a toilet so if its privacy you want think again. The cottage is beautiful but much room for improvement when it comes to staff and self catering equipment provided. This property is ideal if you want to eat out every night and dont want any privacy . We prefer privacy and been able to shop at supermarket and butchers and stock up for the week .

You couldn't ask for more in this fabulous little cottage.Even though it's a hop skip and a jump from the pub you can still hideaway if you want to. Fabulous base for walking if the weather is kind(it wasn't for us unfortunately!)We arrived on a very cold and wintry day but we received a very warm welcome from the staff.Massive choice of food in the pub - but the kitchen in the cottage is great if you want to do your own(we even baked bread!)Short drives to a variety of different places/interests.All in all a very happy holiday.
May 2013
This is a great place to stay. I was on my own with my two Golden Retriever dogs and we all had a brilliant time. Lovely multi-fuel burning stove and great facilities. Bathroom a little cold, as no heating in there. Brilliant spot to go walking from, which we did because we couldn't drive anywhere due to the snow at Easter. Lovely food all day at the pub and really friendly staff and locals. Will definitely return one day.
May 2013
Great service picked keys up from pub next door ,very friendly ,shown us around cottage. The cottage it's self was lovely, clean, everything you could wish for, added bonus was dog friendly so our little dog Maisie came and was made welcome in pub next door that served wonderful food at a very reasonable price, everything was great loved the way it had been totally refurbished, and the bedroom overlooking the living area. Located in countryside but short drive to nearby villages. Loved everything about the cottage except think the dog could sense the resident ghosts !!

We had a lovely time here. The cottage was gorgeous. The location close to Grassington and the dales was fabulous. The pub next door had a great atmosphere and served delicious food. Only downside was cottage was just a little too close to the pub and felt overlooked. Overall though I would recommend a stay and would visit again.

Situated next to The Old Hall Inn and one mile from the honey pot village of Grassington. Lovely Grade II listed, stone built cottage, providing excellent facilities and comfort. Unfortunately despite being located in one of the most scenically beautiful parts of the Dales, you are unable to enjoy the views directly from the cottage, or its little garden area, although it was possible to start a number of walks directly from the front door. The arrangement or the bedroom in the beamed ceiling of the cottage might present difficulty for people with mobility problems. Other than that the property would receive full marks and we would be happy to return. One significant bonus of being next to the inn was being able to sample its excellent food, hospitality and real ales - indeed it also provides cooked breakfasts.
