“Could Be Very Good.”
Reviewed 2 July 2015 for a stay in June 2015

people found this review helpful

This is a lovely cottage in a great location, clean and very well equipped.
A good heating system provides plenty of hot water and warmth essential for a comfortable stay.
However it should be noted that the pictures used in the advertisement for this property are out of date and significantly the garden table and chairs have been removed. There is no satisfactory arrangement for a larger party to sit outside and enjoy the lovely garden.
A phone message left for Mr Cribb on this matter was completely ignored.
There are also maintenance issues with no less than 5 wall light bulbs not working, 2 curtain rail brackets detaching from the wall and a continuous flashing alarm light outside a main bedroom window.
These matters need to be resolved if the cottage is to reach the described "executive standard"

Management Response

Thanks for your feedback Jeremy; its really important to us guests feel they can bring things to our attention and we take pride that we deal with such matters immediately.

Just to clarify; there are 8 garden chairs (I believe you didn't realise these were in the summer house and garage- which is unfortunate - and we now tell guests to look in those places- especially if there was recent rain;

The light bulbs and curtain rails were dealt with within 2 days of coming to our attention and we didn't charge you for the rails that had previously been in good working order;

“Fantastic cottage for larger groups/families, spacious, comfortable and great location.”
Reviewed 23 February 2015 for a stay in February 2015

We stayed for a week with another family. Together there were 8 of us, 4 children, 4 adults.
The downstairs living space was a great size so we weren't under each others feet.
2 living rooms were really useful for us. The kids could settle in front of the tv whilst we used the other. A tv in the 2nd living room would have been useful.
The kitchen diner was a great social place for us. Big enough for us all to sit in comfort at the table and great for us to cook and eat once the children were tucked up in bed.
The kitchen had every utensil we could possibly need and more. Plastic cups plates and bowls were very useful for the kids and there were more than enough glasses, plates, bowls for everyone.
The bedrooms were very comfortable and spacious. The smallest room had bunk beds in it and not much else, but for kids it was perfect.
3 bathrooms was a luxury for us all (1 downstairs). No queues for the toilet!
Plenty of towels and toiletries.
The garage was ideal to park the car and finding a space in the square for the other car was never a problem.
Ideal location being in the middle of Grassington, yet we couldn't hear the cars or people once safely inside the cottage.
Would definitely recommend.
Our children were all 5 and under and it was fantastic for them. All children were perfectly able to walk so no need for stair gates. The character of the cottage included steps into and out of most rooms, so may be difficult for very young children who are crawling everywhere.....
Will definitely return!

“Perfect”
Reviewed 12 December 2014 for a stay in December 2014

We have recently returned from a weekend away in Grassington and the cottage was just perfect for our group. We were in a party of 5 and the cottage had ample room for all of us making it a really relaxing stay. The kitchen is beautifully designed and well equiped with a large dining table in the adjacent open plan dining room; ideal for self catering if you don't want to venture to any of the local pubs (which are a 2 min walk away). The underfloor heating in the kitchen was a dream!

There are 4 beautiful bedrooms and 3 bathrooms, which was ideal for a group of 5 girls! The main living room is huge with a large fire place, but behind this is a smaller 'snug' room if you want to be a bit more cosy.

Our party had two cars but there is more street parking if any more are required.

We were staying on busy weekend as the Dickensian Christmas Market was on so the pubs were pretty full. However we still managed to book a table at one for diner on the Saturday night. The cottage is just off main street so whilst they are close to the pubs we didn't hear any noise - and there was plenty of people still outside them even though it was freezing!

Overall a fantastic stay, can't wait to go back!

“Relaxing weekend away”
Reviewed 12 December 2014 for a stay in November 2014

My husband and I love Grassington, the walks... The little boutique shops... The local food... The divine pies at the butchers (need I say more?) and this cottage really is the cherry on top! You couldn't ask for a better location or a more scenic stay, it's just wonderful. With underfloor heating downstairs, a fabulous kitchen you can actually cook in and the exquisitely decorated feel gives this cottage such a wonderful atmosphere. I've stayed here with my hubby and loved it so much I decided to go again with my girl friends. We had a wonderful time and we definitely will be going back! Its worth the visit and you won't be disappointed!
