Rock House Cottage

Rock House Cottage has `probably` the best views in town, yet is only a minute`s walk from the square. Like the village, our cottage is very old, staircase is steep, narrow and without handholds. It is a four story house. The double and one single bedroom upstairs are small and the beds raised high to make the most of the views, you need some agility to get in and out of bed. Main bathroom is on this floor with shower and bath. The main living floor is entered from Low Lane and has lounge with open fire and a kitchen diner with access to small, but perfectly formed garden with table, BBQ, and VIEWS. The garden is not suited to children as there is a big drop into the neighbours garden. Downstairs is large double bedroom with en suite shower and toilet. Bed is also raised off the floor, we use this room as an Airbnb. From there you go down to the basement, where we store our bikes and you can get out to the village via the neighbours drive.

About the location

Grassington is a quaint old village with cobbled streets and three pubs, two restaurants, two take-aways, several coffee shops and a selection of independent shops as well as a mini supermarket and a bakers. In the high season it pays to book ahead for dining out.
It is brilliant walking country and I have created a heap of local walks from short to long, mostly starting in Grassington. We also mountain-bike and can advise on local routes.
Grassington is the setting for Darrowby, the main village in All Creatures Great and Small. We are 10 miles from Skipton where the main supermarkets are. It is about 45 minutes to Harrogate and about an hour to Leeds, York is 1 1/2 hour by car. The Dales are on the doorstep and we love the remoteness and quite, barren countryside around us, though walking along the river to the local woods is also a favourite.
Family fishing in Kilnsey is 10 minutes away by car and so is horse riding in Conistone.
We have all the maps of the area.
