“Perfect base for exploring the area”
Reviewed 28 June 2014 for a stay in June 2014

We loved the location of this house, right in the heart of Grassington but tucked away in a peaceful location.

Great sized house with some lovely features and fantastic views. Well equipted. Some areas in need of a good spring clean. Lovely sunny patio area and garden.

So many walks on the doorstep and so much to do in the area. We struggled to fit it all into a week. Didn't want to leave.

We would reccomend Hesketh farm for little ones, enjoyed Bolton Abbey, had two nice meals at lovely pub, Fountainne Inn, Linton.

“Great location”
Reviewed 16 May 2014 for a stay in May 2014

I have just returned from a lovely break at Ellesmere Cottage. In total there were 6 adults, 2 children (4 and 2) and 2 babies. The cottage worked perfectly well for our party, all having sufficient bedroom and living space, but if there were 10 adults I think downstairs would be a bit cramped and you’d be fighting over 2 bathrooms. The lounge and dining room are more spacious than the photo's suggest though.

I also agree with the below comments about the house needing a good clean, lots of cobwebs on the bedroom ceilings etc.

The location is ideal, so close to the amenities of Grassington (pubs, restaurants, shops etc) and a great base to explore the Dales and the local attractions. The butchers in Grassington is first class and the bakers and Relish Deli are also worth a visit.

Paul is very responsive to any questions and giving info as required via email.

Overall for location and price it’s a great cottage and would recommend to others.

“Cracking house but needs a good clean”

We had a lovely time over the Easter bank holiday weekend. The house couldn't be in a better location for the village and walks in the surrounding areas, which to be honest is why we chose it. Communication with Paul is brilliant and he replied to all my questions within a couple of hours.

The only thing that lets the house down is the cleanliness, even the long abandoned cobwebs had dust on them! Damp on the top floor, a couple of the bedrooms and the main bathroom could do with a well needed refurb.

A deep clean and some tlc, this could be a 5 star house.

“We had a great family week”
Reviewed 11 March 2014 for a stay in February 2014

Our daughter booked this as a present for 9 of us and we went the last week in February and into March. We thoroughly enjoyed the house and visiting the area, lots to see and do. The weather was fairly cold and damp and although the house was warm the lounge was not. Throws were over the back of the chairs and we sat with those round us on a couple of nights. The stove did not give out much heat and the radiators in the lounge are tiny. Upstairs was lovely and warm, too warm in some of the bedrooms. However, we had 3 under 7s who wanted to play out in the garden when it was fine but we had to shift 7/8 piles of dog muck before we could let them out and we do not have a dog so we were not to blame. If people rent a place and take an animal surely they should clear up after it! Just a thing I get on my high horse about. Otherwise the house is well situated to do lots of things in the village, well kitted out with crockery etc but take slippers for the stone kitchen and dining room floors. If anyone does use the 5th bedroom under the eaves don't put tall people in it, we didn't need to use it but Hobbits would fit in nicely. Oh, and don't fall over the threshold from the family bathroom into the hall it hurts your toes as our little ones found out.

How helpful were the directions to the property? How easy was key pickup/access to the property?
