The property benefits from an abundance of natural light and includes many original property features including original Georgian sash windows, a large ornate south-facing window.
Typical of a property of this period (1866), both staircases are relatively steep and narrow which whilst being part of the character of the apartment may cause difficulty for the elderly and/or infirm. Those with young children will also need to bear this in mind although we have stair gates and manage with a 3-year-old ourselves in the apartment.
Directly at the front of your accommodation, there is a small flagged seating area and a convenient reserved parking space for your car.
Grassington is a picture-postcard village in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales National Park. Set amongst the magnificent limestone scenery of Upper Wharfedale, Grassington is a hub for local tourism offering a wide range of outdoor leisure activities.
