Just had a week at Lavender Cottage and it was brilliant. Not our first time and won't be the last. If you want a time away with everything you need then this the place for you. Cake and prosecco awaits your arrival. Warm and cosy and very comfortable, and good value for money
My wife and I very much enjoyed our weekend in Lavender Cottage and appreciated the milk, cake and bottle of Prosecco left by the owner to welcome us.. The cottage faces the village green and was warm and cosy. There's a garage about half a mile up the road with a shop for buying newspapers and groceries. Grassington is about a mile way. We did some lovely walks in the surrounding area and along the river Wharfe. We'd happily return.

We enjoyed our stay at this well equipped cosy cottage which was handily placed for exploring and walking in the Southern Yorkshire Dales but away from the crowds on a bank holiday week in these difficult Covid times.. As well as those further afield, there were some lovely walks from the door, with the larger Grassington village and Linton Falls close by. The kitchen was well equipped. We particularly enjoyed the chocolate cake in the welcome pack on arrival! Thanks for a lovely stay!
Mr Conibear, August 2020
The cottage was perfectly placed for visiting the Dale's.. The pictures on the Sykes site dont do justice to the decor which was beautiful. The owner left homemade Chocolate cake and a bottle of bubbly in the fridge. Also milk so that we could have a brew. The local inn did great food. Thank you, wouldn't hesitate to book again.
We love this cottage and have a number of family members living in the Dales so visit often. We were due to stay in the cottage in May 2020 unfortunately due to the coronavirus and the current government guidelines we felt we had no choice but to reschedule our stay. On contacting the holiday cottage owner they would not permit us to reschedule and insisted on keeping our deposit. In a time of national crisis and despite the mortgage holidays, government backed loans and grants it is a terrible shame some people are not prepared to show support to those of us trying to do the right thing. We will now never book this cottage again.
Mrs Woolley, July 2020
Lovely cottage and very well placed for exploring the Dales.. Really appreciated the extra touches - bubbly, fruit cake and milk left for us. Plenty of wood for the burner. Great shower. Lovely Emma Bridgewater crockery. We had a great week. Thank you!
Mrs Wills, January 2020
Very comfortable cottage with some nice touches, the fire laid ready for lighting, Christmas decorations and a bottle of fizz and mince pies welcomed us on arrival
WiFi, tv with Netflix, Amazon video all added to the experience, night light on the landing a nice little touch too! Kitchen was well equipped and has quality crockery and small appliances!
Our furry friend was also catered for with blanket and clearly welcomed too.
I’m sure we shall return to the cottage din the not too distant future.
Mr Lingard, December 2019
Lavender cottage was great, we truly had the Yorkshire experience.. The house was cosy and the fire burner is excellent. The Cottage is situated in the heart of Threshfield village and only a short stroll to the neighbouring village where there are plenty of cafes and shops to explore. Would definitely return and recommend to others
Ms Brennan, November 2019
Lavender Cottage is in a wonderful area - ideal for walking and exploring the lovely villages nearby.. Not enough time to do everything we wanted in a week. The cottage was very comfortable and cosy for the two of us. Lovely to have milk, cake and Prosecco provided on arrival and the provision of logs and sticks was also a nice touch. We would return.
Mrs Greenall, October 2019
It was a dear wee cottage,tastefully set up,with many personal touches.. Excellent information re area,& for us in an idyllic situation.A lot to do & see in the vicinity,with the lovely Lavender cottage to come back to in the evening,with its cosy log fire with logs provided.A most generous welcome pack too of fruit cake,milk & Proscecco.We would certainly reccommend.
Arrived at the cottage and found it to be very welcoming with a little something on the table for us upon arrival.. This was unexpected and appreciated. We found the decor was superb a lot better than we had expected also the cottage was very well equipped with the daily needs. Very comfortable clean also there were books available listing walks and local amenities and instructions for all the equipment that was in the cottage. Really enjoyed our stay....
Mr Bartlett, August 2019
Lavender Cottage is in a superb, very quiet position.. Lovely traditional features, very cosy. Pub & supermarket minutes away. Owner provides a very helpful selection of guide books & walks. Excellent storage space in the cottage, bike storage outside.
Definitely a cottage to stay in again.
Lovely cottage very convenient for exploring the Dales.. We were very lucky to have wonderful weather which helped make this a great holiday.
Lovely cottage in a good location for the Dales.. Well appointed with some nice unexpected extras. Some beautiful walks on your doorstep!
It's in a brilliant location.. Easy walk into Grassington and to see water falls at Linton. Such a cosy cottage great wood burner and the logs were free, so many others actually charge for these. Great shower and bath. Lovely owners who had left us milk, teabags, a bottle of fizz and a fruitcake. Not very often that happens.
Cant recommend this property highly enough. Will certainly be back.
We often struggle with your cottages been too warm or the heating is set to come on in a morning too hot, or the boilers can be too noisy but this little cottage was set perfect and we never felt cold at all.. The newly decorated bathroom was lovely, in fact all the décor was very pleasant and it was well equipped for us to stay in and cook all weekend (we are not fussed for dining out).We contacted Sophie (the owner) before our holiday and she mentioned a plumber was coming to fit a bathroom radiator but he never showed up. It was ok because we didn't mind been disturbed which we mentioned, it wasn't too cold in the bathroom during our stay so all was ok. Hopefully we will return one day and we would recommend to friends & family.
We are very experienced cottage holidaymakers, and found Lavender cottage .... We are very experienced cottage holidaymakers, and found Lavender cottage perfect in every way, new bathroom is fantastic, bed very comfy, beautiful cottage all round, the heating in the cottage was set perfectly when we stayed in end of November, and used the log burner 3 or 4 times, It is ideally situated and we found places to visit every day, minutes away from Grassington, Skipton and lots of other places spoil't for choice, we will be making this cottage a regular one of ours in the future,
Great cottage & location.. Be prepared for some road noise though! Shame on our holiday that we were surrounded by roadworks, but Thant can't be helped. Very good walks in all directions. Had a really good time at lavender Cottage.
The kitchen was well stocked with extras which we had not expected for example, 2 litres of milk in the fridge, a cake, tea bags, instant coffee, sugar, salt, spices, a bottle of Prosecco [which we have received on a previous holiday].. We did not need to use the car each day because facilities for us, were within a reasonable walking distance. The Old Hall Inn was a convenient place to dine out and the food was good.
We had a lovely comfortable week at the cottage.. Lovely pub across the road and spar store nearby for supplies. Great walking base. Skipton is a nice town nearby with all the shops you could wish for and tea rooms galore.
The cottage was clean, tidy and in an ideal location for walking without the need to travel very far.. The local pub was just across the road and had an excellent menu with very friendly staff.
The cottage owner was extremely helpful and I would not hesitate to recommend the accommodation.
The location of the property is excellent.. However as an international traveller and regular client of Sykes I was disappointed in this property. It was not of the usual standard we have experienced. The issue was about what was NOT disclosed such as washing machine and dryer in out house so needed to go out in snow, the fridge was in external porch
so each time we needed to access the fridge we needed to go out in the cold. The carpets were grubby and towels were fairly poor quality. Overall dissappointing.
Nice cottage,location great, handy for shops and for food/ pubs. Great for walkers,good parking facility,nice area
Simply a lovely comfortable cottage in a very good location - all we could have wished for!
Lovely cottage with everything we needed.. Comfortable beds and nice linen. Quiet location and parking space
Ms Thearle, August 2017
Well located for walking, close to amenities but peaceful..
Ms Johnson, December 2016
Lovely little cottage with all the pros of being in the kgarage sale of a lively Dales village, across the green and near a lovely pub! ! Facilities were good, could do with a shower but other than that very comfortable and cosy!
Mr Marchant, December 2016
We had a lovely long weekend at Lavender Cottage, it was beautiful and a real home from home.. Really great cottage and we really appreciated the wood burner and access to lots of wood as it was very chilly, the wine, milk and home baked cake was so nice to arrive to. Perfect size for 2 people and our Labrador. The only thing I found slightly misleading was that the listing says shower over bath, there is a shower head but there is no attachment so you can only have a bath, and you did need to push the boost button for enough hot water for two baths. Other than that we had a fantastic stay, as I said the cottage was superb and cosy and it was in such a great location. The butchers in Grassington is a must for anyone wanting to cook in!! We were very happy and we would definitely look to stay in Lavender Cottage again.
Miss Collier, November 2016
We loved the cottage and had a great time relaxing there after exploring the Dales everyday.. Thanks for making the dog feel welcome too, this was very important to us.
One suggestion we would make is for the hot water system to be updated. We quickly worked out that for both of us to use the bath, we had to reheat the water which took an extra hour. In the grand scheme of things it's not a major issue. The water pressure wasn't great on one occasion too. This didn't spoil our holiday at all and wouldn't discourage us from recommending the cottage.
Lavender Cottage was perfect and in a lovely setting with beautiful surroundings.

Lavender Cottage is comfortable, warm and cosy. Perfect for a ' get away from it all' break. Everything we needed in the house was available. Good pub with food just across the road. Walking routes from the door. Other lovely villages within walking distance. No snow unfortunately, but not the owners fault!!
A charming little cottage in a perfect location for walks in the countryside as well as to good pubs and Grassington.

The Cottage was lovely, we would have loved to have had more time to relax in there. I would recommend this cottage, my daughter and myself are hoping to book in the near future.
