Self-Catering Reviews

We booked to stay at Bridge End last New Year and had an amazing experience staying here in Grassington so we decided to book again for this New Year. We were not disappointed with our stay. On arrival we were welcomed with a clean and warm cottage, and a welcome pack of tea, coffee, milk and biscuits were provided. The last occupants had taken the pepper mill but another was ordered and dropped off at the property within a few days. The kitchen has recently been refurbished to an excellent standard. The open fire has been changed to a log burner which we have used most nights. Everything at this location is on your doorstep, the walks along the river are to the left as you leave the property and the village is up the hill on your right. The Forresters pub up the road was a great place for a drink with the log fire roaring. We walked to Burnsall along the river and called for a drink at the Red Lion on New Years Day which took about three hours round trip. The location is very quiet as we are the last property down the hill apart from the walkers passing by. We are still here taking in the last couple of days and I cannot recommend this property enough. This year, I booked directly with the owners of the property which I would also advise.

We are still here whilst I write my review and really don’t want to leave. This house is beautiful and the kitchen well equipped for a party of 8 including two children and a dog. There is practically everything you could need. The views from the house are spectacular and the town is a five minute walk away. I love the fact there are two sitting rooms, we would light the open fire on an evening and retire with a glass of wine… or two! I will definitely return here maybe in the summer to appreciate the garden and views in the early morning and late evening.

It was a great holiday.. Fantastic location. And a beautifully presented cottage with great facilities. My only concern was that prior to booking I had asked (Sykes) if the basement room could be made up as a double to accommodate our party. Sykes told me that that could be done, and on that basis I made the booking. However, when I spoke the owners of the cottage itself for final arrangements, they said they know nothing of this request and it could not be facilitated. This was a shame and sounds like a failure of communication between Sykes and the owners.

Had a fab weekend here , amazing location with beautiful views of the Dales The house is spacious with seperate lounge area’s , which was good Bedrooms are nice , a double with the remainder singles ( i enjoyed the bedroom in the lower part of the house) it was nice & cool( which was a bonus in the hot spell we had) Both bathrooms had powerful showers The house had everything you needed The garden was to die for, amazing scenery and a summer house was a nice touch Grassington village was a short walk away I only have a few suggestions to make: A parasol would of been useful - due to baking sunshine Larger fridge/freezer would be useful being located in the kitchen area All beds to have cotton sheets - some had silky covers Overall an amazing house ! Would def stay here again !

Great location and fantastic setting
Mrs Wheeldon
December 2018
This is a lovely cosy house.. The pictures don’t really do it justice. We had a lovely Christmas with the six of us augmented by local family visits for meals and games. I was nervous about cooking Xmas dinner in a holiday home kitchen but I need not have been. The double oven functioned perfectly and our large turkey just squeaked into it. A complete success. In between meals we walked up and down the river and over the moor. Everyone agreed it would have been hard to better.
Mrs Schmidkonz

We had a wonderful time at Bridge End.. Even the weather was fine. Bridge End is a well equipped house, comfortably and clean, with a lovely garden and fantastic view.

Stayed here for a special break with my family , sisters special birthday. The weather was kind to us which meant we could enjoy the lovely garden and river views. The house is so comfortable, plenty of space for 7 of us. Comfy beds and very nice bathrooms. A ten minute walk into Grassington. Fabulous dinner at Grassinton house and an equally delicious Sunday lunch at The Black horse inn. Would definitely stay again. Xx
Mr Deakin
April 2018
A cottage that provided one of the most wonderful views in the Dales.. Cottage full of facilities and character.Spacious rooms,a beautiful landscaped garden,but would have liked it to have been securely enclosed so that we could have let our dog run free. Walks in abundance .Whats not to like and enjoy ...
Mrs Deane
March 2018
The location of this house really could not be better - incredible views and easy access to beautiful walks.. Really comfortable house with good facilities and a very helpful owner who clearly wants visitors to enjoy their stay. It comfortably accommodated our family of 6 and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it. We've been twice and have already booked in for a third visit.

Lovely cosy cottage with stunning views.. Easy to walk into the town centre... we had 2 children aged 3 and they managed the walk fine. The owner is very friendly. We would definitely stay again!
Mrs Embley

1 Bridge End is a really lovely house, which has been furnished with care and attention. Plenty of room for 8 people. The location could not be better, the views are stunning and the Dale Way is right in front, perfect!
Mrs Phythian
November 2015
This was one of the best houses we have stayed in. It is in an excellant position, only a couple of minutes walk from Grassington and with spectacular views. The house itself is decorated beautifully and is very comfortable. It was also reasonably priced for the size and condition of the house. I would recommend 1 Bridge End to anyone wanting to visit Grassington and we hope to stay there again.
Mrs Bates
September 2015
The house was in a great position overlooking the River Wharfe and close to the village. The views from the lounge were excellent and there were a lot of walks that we could do directly from the house.
Mrs West
September 2015
We loved the décor, it was particularly tasteful and reflected a high standard of interior design. We also loved the garden space and aspect overlooking the river.
August 2015
I stayed at this cottage with my sister and her 2 children. Although the weather wasn't brilliant we enjoyed walks along the river with the dog and sitting in the garden in the sunshine making the most of the amazing view. The cottage was scrupulously clean and comfortable and had everything we needed. I would recommend this cottage to anyone who enjoys walking, views and the beautiful dales countryside.
Mrs Johnson
August 2015
This is a fabulous cottage with amazing views. One of the highlights of our week was sitting in the garden in the sunshine. The house was beautifully furnished and decorated and had everything we needed. Being able to walk from the door was brilliant so we kept car use to a minimum. We hope to return next year. Thank you.
Mr Weller

The view from the house is incredible. Having BBQs in the gorgeous garden, looking over the river whilst drinking cold lager is one of the highlights of my summer. Highly recommend this property.
Mrs Postans
July 2014
The house was in an excellent position with stunning views and a lovely garden.There was no need to use the car for the shops or the amenities. One of our best holidays.
July 2014
The cottage suited ALL our needs. The dining area was lovely and cosy and had a table large enough to sit us all. We all loved the view from the cottage, we spent nights in enjoying good local food and wine watching the wildlife and river. We went on many walks around the cottage and visited the local hostelries where we enjoyed the drink, food and company of the locals. I would highly recommend this cottage.
Ms Hammond
May 2014
The view was the best of any holiday property we have ever stayed in and the house felt very generous and homely to our large family party. We were able to walk with our dog straight from the door. Fantastic.
Mr Pearson
April 2014
Great cottage in a great location. Ideal for a family holiday and walking in the Dales.

A lovely property.
Mr Mcfarland
October 2013
Situation of this property is superb, and the view from the sitting room is just fantastic. Lovely accommodation.
October 2013
Bridge End 1 has ample space for six people, wonderfully and tastefully furnished rooms, and the most magnificent view out of the bay window of the living room. Hiking tours can be started right from the property, and still there is no car needed for grocery shopping - the "center" of Grassington is only a five minutes' walk away. Backdraws: The room in the basement felt a bit damp, so we did not use it (and we did not need to - there were enough beds for the six of us upstairs). And the traffic across the bridge that gave the house its name is a little bit loud, but the cars' noise mixes up with the very soothing rushing of the river.
Ms Watson-Cooper
September 2013
We thought the whole holiday was very good.
Mr Houghton
August 2013
Lovely cottage, excellent location and scenery. Fantastic views down the river and the Milky Way was visible on a clear night. Ideal for the larger family group.
Mrs Arras-Pretzler

Dr Helm
January 2013
Loved the location of the house and its riverside views, the lounges were very cosy and it was great to be able to have an open fire. We had everything we needed in the house and didn't have to bring lots of food and drink as we could get everything we needed in Grassington. We had a wonderful holiday, and walking in the snow from our door made it even more special.
Mrs Chisholm
December 2012
Beautiful and convenient location. Very nice fittings and decor in the house and lovely garden. Very well equipped kitchen. Loads of nice glasses/crockery and plenty of cleaning products. Good dishwasher, washing machine and tumble dryer. Nice to have tea/coffee biscuit welcome pack provided.

We had a superb time and have already booked for same time next year. It ticked every box! It impressed all members of the family and we have very fond memories of our time.
September 2012
We had a faboulous week in 1 Bridge End - the photos did not prepare us for the wonderful location just yards from the riverbank. Great for walking and ideal for our dog - we all loved the summerhouse where early evening sundowners were enjoyed looking over the flowing river. The owners have equipped this house to the highest standard and have provided every possible home comfort which, together with the ease of walking into Grassington so easily, makes this a house we will definitely retrun to
Mr Copsey

Dr Curtis
May 2012
The decor and size of the house along with the cleanliness and location. The views were spectacular.
May 2012
Fabulously appointed house on the river. Beautiful interior design, attention to detail. Immaculately clean. Kids loved all the nooks and crannies to hide in, I loved the views, peace and quiet, and proximity to village (a short walk). Excellent place to stay with our kids aged 12, 9 and 6. Lots of stairs probably not suited to toddlers Only things to fault - the lack of provision of bath towels and wifi.
Mrs Mitchell
April 2012
We found the property delightful to stay in. It was more like being in a home, than a holiday let - comfortable all round. The garden and summerhouse were nice to sit in.

Bridge End is a stylish but homely place to stay in the Yorkshire Dales. It is furnished to a high standard and has a wonderful view of the river. The owner is very helpful; there is comprehensive information to enable guests to make the most of their stay. Grassington is a charming place with good pubs, internet cafe and shops within walking distance. There are wonderful walks accessible from the house.

The house is lovely,although a little chilly in the extreme weather we had in January. The location is perfect for walking into the village( 5 min walk) There are some lovely walks down by the river and the view are stunning from the houe. I would love to return and experience the house in the summer months.

There are beautiful river views from the lounge, with great walks from the door of the cottage. The garden, which overlooks the river, is very pleasant.The cottage is very well equipped.The owners are most helpful. They gave us ideas of where to eat out in the locality, and places of interest to visit. We enjoyed our stay so much, that we have booked to return in 2010.
December 2009
The cottage was great - really nicely furnished with everything we needed - and in a great location. The kids loved taking the dog down to the river and walking in to the village to go the sweetshop (just like childhood should be). We could walk for miles from the house (found a great book on the internet 'Yorkshire Dale Pub in the middle circular walks) and found great places for lunch. It rained heavily every day but we had a super time. Only disadvantage was the garden is not enclosed and the house is next to wuite a busy road but the house and location make up for this and we just made sure the dog was controlled.
Mrs Hyland
October 2009
Stunning river views from the lounge. A very central location for many great walks and sights. A very spacious property.

A great cottage in a great location. Our third stay and not our last! The place is perfect for walking and has everything you could want, lots of room and the two sitting areas means that everyone gets some peace and quiet, adults and kids can be separated easily, or two family groups do their own thing. Easy walk into the village with a good choice of local shops and great pubs, all of which let you take the dog into the bar. Walks straight from the doorstep mean that the car gets a break too!
