“Super accommodation A real home from home”
Reviewed 16 November 2015 for a stay in November 2015

Had a really wonderful week in this quaint cottage. I was very impressed by the quality of the interior, it was tastefully decorated with nice period furnishings. I felt completely at home as soon as I arrived. The whole place was clean and fresh. The owner has paid great attention to detail and it pays off marvelously. The bottle of wine is a lovely touch and reinforces the owners' desire to ensure you have a good time. The cottage is well placed for the town's amenities as it is just off the main square. There are three nice pub/restaurants within a hundred yards and a few yards further on there is a convenience store and a newsagent as well as gift shops etc. This was my first cottage holiday and it is going to be very difficult to better the experience - Thank you

It is wonderful that you had such a great experience on your first cottage holiday! It is great to have a place to feel right at home whilst you enjoy the surrounding amenities - it sounds like Blacksmith Cottage suited you down to the ground. We hope that you join us for another cottage holiday soon!

“A lovely bolthole”
Reviewed 18 March 2015 for a stay in November 2014

In a very central position in Grassington. The studio is small and very well equipped,although may have too much furniture and unnecessary ornaments.
The bathroom was a little chilly. On arrival, the remote control for TV was missing. We contacted the owner who suggested we look under the be bed! She contacted us later to say the previous tenant had taken it home with her. No replacement was offered. As we were only there for 3 nights it never appeared.

“Perfect cottage for romantic break”
Reviewed 25 January 2015 for a stay in January 2015

This is an absolutely delightful studio set right in the heart of Grassington. I booked it as a Christmas present for my husband and we both had a great time. We stayed there in a week when the temperatures were below zero and snow lay on the ground. It was very comfortable and cosy. There is one room with a large bed and a couple of sofas and chairs. The kitchen and dining table are around the corner. It is extremely well stocked. All the usuals but also books, DVDs, guides as well as tea and coffee. Even a bottle of wine!!

The location is ideal. At that time of year we were able to park the car in the square. Within a few yards were three pubs, a hotel with restaurant, an indian take-away and a fish and chip shop. We ate at all of them!! We also bought cakes from the cafe opposite the cottage. They were all good. We also visited the Old Hall Inn at Threshfield (perfect for fish and chips) and had the tasting menu at The Angel at Hetton.

Lovely flat in a great village. Would highly recommend.

Liked best: Style of cottage and location. Comfort
Liked least: Difficult to critise but the bathroom was a little chilly when the outside temperature was -6. Also although we did not hear the noise from outside we occasionally heard the people above. But this is being really picky!!

Thank you for your great review. We are glad to hear that you enjoyed Grassington and made use of the local amenities close by. We hope the fish and chips were up to the same standard as the property. Sounds like you had some cold weather, always good to see that the property and owners were prepared for this! Nice touch with the wine too. We look forward to booking your next stay!

“Very cosy little cottage”
Reviewed 6 September 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We stayed in this little cottage in Aug/Sept 2014 and found it to be very charming and well equipped. The location is fabulous for lots of walking in the Yorkshire Dales and Grassington is a lovely place to be based as it is a lovely friendly village. There are three hotels that allow dogs and the food is acceptable pub food. If there was one downside, I would struggle to find one but it would be that it is a studio and quite small. However, the layout is very well done and there is a huge bed.

We live relatively close by and as I work from home wanted to relax and be away from my working/home environment. Staying at blacksmith cottage made me think why do we need big houses and lots of clutter that we never use. It was compact, very well equipped, extremely clean and we were welcomed by a lovely bottle of wine. The weather was kind to us and we did what we planned to do...absolutely nothing. It was wonderful and I would highly recommend a stay here. Perhaps next time we will try lotties loft upstairs!

“Good location: needs a refresh”
Reviewed 14 May 2013 for a stay in April 2013

people found this review helpful

We chose this rental on the basis of the favourable reviews, and expected slightly better than we got. It was fine in terms of size, and very convenient for the village. But there were too many things not working or in need of repair - we called the owner who retuned the TV for us and replaced the five light bulbs that were not working. But the radio was hopeless, there was broken shelf in the fridge and the fitted sheets didn't fit the bed. So it would benefit from a bit of a health check and improvement before the season really gets going.
