This was a lovely base for a summer holiday with our teenage son: comfortable and clean, beautifully decorated and furnished and in a great location for minimal hassle - shops, pubs, restaurants and lovely walks all right on the doorstep. We had a very happy and restorative holiday, thank you

A beautiful, clean well presented cottage on a quiet street away from the main high street but close to local amenities. Ideally placed for excellent walking from the doorstep or further afield and within striking distance of local visitor attractions.

Ripley's Rest is fabulous. Furnished and decorated to a high standard with care and attention, it feels like a family home rather than a holiday cottage. Just a stroll from the centre of Grassington which has everything you need for a short visit. It's a shame one of the beds doesn't convert to twin beds, but we knew about that and it was worth theRead more compromise. Hide

This cottage is a real gem. It's location is excellent and sets it apart from many others. It is so quiet and peaceful, yet only a short walk to all the shops, cafes, pubs and restaurants.

Immaculately clean, well equipped cottage situated on a side street in Grassington. Tastefully decorated and very comfortable. The cottage is within easy walking distance of shops and pubs. For the less able, you should be aware of the steep stairs to the upstairs. We had a lovely stay there and intend to visit again.

Gorgeous cottage in perfect location close to the many amenities of Grassington. Exceptionally clean, well equipped, with nice decor & cosy furnishings. Might a bit snug if 4 stayed but perfect for 2. The weather wasn't kind during our stay but we managed some lovely short walks and there was no need to use the car. Some nice pubs and shops in GrasRead moresington which kept us occupied. Recommend Grassington House for a fancy meal and Devonshire and black horse for great pub grub and nice surrounds Hide

Cozy, clean and comfortable! A real gem tucked away in unassuming (yet stunning) Grassington. Everywhere we walked and ran took our breath away. Although, some of that could have been the hills, too... ;-)
