Living Space

As soon as you step into Dales Dovecote you really appreciate the attention to detail that has been invested in creating this welcoming, open plan living space. Light floods in through the full height glass gable, a striking feature with doors out to the balcony. The open plan living space is well thought out with a lovely sitting area with Sky TV and Alexa music system for cosy nights by the fire.

The kitchen is well equipped with cooker, hob, microwave, dishwasher and coffee machine, everything you need for cooking up a treat and chatting about the days’ adventures.

The super king size bed with Hypnos mattress is just perfect for retreating to after a day out exploring the Dales.

The bathroom is luxuriously appointed, with fluffy towels and dressing robes, and with complimentary toiletries from the Sedbergh Soap Company, you have everything you need for a home spa experience.


French doors open onto the balcony from the living space, a thoughtfully placed table and chairs provides the perfect spot for taking in the scenery and wildlife all around and there really couldn’t be a better excuse for a sundowner!

At the foot of the stone steps from Dales Dovecote, there is an additional sitting area with a BBQ for al fresco dining overlooking the grounds.


Threshfield is a popular Wharfedale village, just 3 miles from Grassington. Grassington lies less than 10 miles north of Skipton and 8 miles north-east of Bolton Abbey in the Southern Yorkshire Dales National Park. Grassington lies next to the River Wharfe and Linton Waterfalls, which offer plenty of opportunities for scenic walks and fishing. Fly fishing is particularly popular and fishing permits can be purchased from the Grassington Post Office.

There are plenty of walks to suit all choices, including over 80 miles of footpaths on the Bolton Abbey Estate. Find pony trekking at Kilnsey and rock climbing at Kilnsey Crag and Malham Cove. Wharfedale has become well known with cyclists after featuring on the 2014 Tour de Yorkshire Route with the Yorkshire Dales Cycleway passing close to Grassington.

There are a number of local cafés and pubs in Grassington for a drink and good food after your day out exploring Wharfedale. Throughout the year there is a variety of events and entertainment with drama and Grassington Movie nights at the Octagon Theatre. Grassington Festival is held for two weeks annually in June and early July. In September the Grassington 40s Weekend offers tea dances and an opportunity to stroll up the High Street and enjoy the 1940’s costumes. In December, enthusiastic locals dress up again for the annual Dickensian Festival.

Grassington Folk Museum in the High Street offers a fascinating window back to Dales life as it used to be. Those wishing to catch up on the latest in Dales Agricultural life will enjoy a day out at Kilnsey Agricultural Show which is held every year at the end of August and offers a chance to see the best in Dales livestock, country crafts and baking, plus fell running and sheepdog trials.

Nearby villages include Linton, Threshfield, Hebden, Conistone and Kilnsey. Kettlewell, made popular by the 2003 film ‘Calendar Girls’, lies 7 miles up the Dale and Malham with its Cove and Tarn of scientific interest is just under 12 miles to the east by car, or closer by foot.
