The Local Area

We are well situated for touring the neighbouring dales and towns and within a one hour drive lies historic York, Fountains Abbey, Haworth and the Brontes, Herriot country and Harrogate.

Set amidst magnificent limestone scenery Grassington has much to offer the visitor from a gentle stroll beside the river to more strenuous hill walks, or explore its quaint cobbled streets, craft fairs and exhibitions.

We have an extensive selection of maps and books to help you plan your day.

There is a short stretch of the River Wharfe where guests can enjoy trout fishing free of charge.

Pony trekking, fly fishing and bike hire can be arranged locally.
