About the property

Recently refurbished to executive feel to this 5 bedroom accomodation

This idyllic stone built 17th Century Cottage, 5 bedroom property has recently being refurbished throughout to provide an executive quality finish. Less than 1 minute from the village centre, accessed through a 'secret passage' and yet tucked away in a 'hidden' street, that enables the garden to become a quiet sanctuary from the lively village life. The 5 bedroom, 3 bathrooms, layout allows maximum flexible sleeping arrangements. The property includes many original features, including underfloor heated Yorkshire stone floors in the kitchen and dinning room, as well as original exposed beams and open fire in the dinning room and log burner in the lounge. The mature and well stocked garden benefits from sufficiently high garden walls to ensure privacy, yet big enough to enjoy the sun all day round. There is off road parking for four cars making this the most perfect family vacation. DVD Player plus ipod/pad/phone dock and a small library of DVD/ games/books;; Bed linen and towels included;

About paul cribb

We are the proud owners of the 2 best cottages within the village; Ellesmere is a 17th century cottage and Brown Fold is an executive standard cottage; We ensure both properties are maintained to a high level as we and our family spend a lot of time there in between rentals

Why paul cribb chose Yorkshire Dales

We love this house because it is set in the heart and hub of the Yorkshire Dales; Grassington is a vibrant village with all the amenities in the village; yet literally on the front door is access to the great outdoors; with great walks and mountain bike routes to explore.

What makes this cottage unique

The location has to be the best thing about this cottage. Literally 30 seconds from the high street yet tucked away in a 'hidden' street creates a private location enhanced by the walled garden.

Loved this place!

  • 5 of 5

Booked as a surprise birthday gift for our mum and she loved turning up to find the entire family hiding in the front room!

Lovely house with plenty of room for us 8 adults and the 2 kids.

Good size garden for the dog and parking was no issue for 4 cars, even though it was the 1940s festival weekend.

Highly recommend a visit to Grassington and a stay here. We are now trying to find dates we can all go again!

Paul (owner) has been contactable and helpful throughout the booking and afterwards.

Loved it! Thank you!

a lovely find!

  • 4 of 5

The house and garden were great - ideal for a big family get together with plenty of space. Great location in the middle of grassington and easy to get everywhere. We even had lots of sunshine! Heed the advice and take your slippers... Those stone floors are cold! Our only criticism was that the previous visitors must have had a dog that they didn't clean up after. We spent the first couple of days clearing all the dog poo off the lawn before we could let the kids play on it. Please clean up after your dogs!
