“Fantastic Cottage”
Reviewed 9 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We had a brilliant stay at Ellesmere. There were three of us and we loved it.
I would say that it would accommodate 5 adults comfortably although there are enough beds for more people.
The great thing is the location, in the heart of Grassington which is such a picturesque village.
Another real bonus is the private parking space and the beautiful garden.
It also has Wifi and Sky etc so you have the best of both worlds. The bathrooms are adequate but not that modern.
Overall it is a great place to stay and I would not hesitate to go back.

“Potential to be one in a million”
Reviewed 13 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

Stayed for a glorious sunny Easter 2015. This is an old property and a bit bashed about. Not one for someone who wants luxury. BUT full of character, brilliant quiet location just off High Street and in wonderful Dales countryside plus allows a dog! With a bit of money spent on it, this would be one in a million.
When we arrived it was freezing and the boiler wasn't working. Paul the owner got a plumber there within 10 minutes and this was 6.30pm on Good Friday! That sort of helpfulness makes up for a lot.
Would stay again, great walks and loads of mountain biking straight from the door!

“Lovely country stay”
Reviewed 30 October 2014 for a stay in October 2014

We went with our good friends who we travel often with, home and abroad. Our friend David found this cottage and liked the look of the village and cottage. To say it is a cottage is an understatement as it is huge. The best way to the cottage is from the Main Street,There are two parking places for cars on and next to the property. The owners of this building have thought of everything nothing has been left to chance. I found a book on the bookshelf about Ellesmere, written a very long time ago by a young relation of the previous owner. It took me all week to read it at my leisure but i enjoyed every minute reading it. There is also a book about the Grassington murderer which is very interesting . The village of Grassington is a popular tourist attraction for days out ,busy with hikers and day trippers. The pub on the high street is worth a mention with a quiz every Wednesday night. It costs a pound to enter,it's a very good quiz but you get a supper and entry in a prize draw it's starts at nine o'clock and is a good night out. There is a regular bus service into Skipton . Market days are Thursday Friday and Saturday. All in all I can thoroughly recommend the holiday let and the surrounding area.

“Stunning property for a holiday in the heart of the dales”
Reviewed 4 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

We booked this holiday for our family of 5 but owing to the size of the house invited our parents too. The house is fabulous, set in the heart of the village but it's walled garden gives absolute privacy and tranquility so you forget you are in a village! The rooms are spacious and beautifully furnished, it really does feel homely unlike many holiday homes the quality of the furnishings is very high. The location of this property is great for sight seeing in the dales with much to do for families. The only thing to note is access to the property is tight with The walls of properties to be passed being quite narrow, that said we have a Navara which is very wide and as my partner is an hgv driver we got through so normal family vehicles should be fine. We have loved this holiday and would love to return for a future holiday, I'd really recommend making this a base for a fantastic dales break.
