Grassington, Yorkshire Dales National Park, North Yorkshire, England
This truly enchanting stone built cottage has just undergone a high spec refurbishment that has brought the already substantial property into executive class.. Ellesmere provides spacious five bedroom en-suite accommodation with beautiful character features throughout and is superbly positioned in a prime location, just 50m away from the upper village square, and yet enjoying a remarkable level of privacy.

Including an attractive private walled garden area, this impressive home has much to commend it. As well as the 5 spacious bedrooms the house includes en suite facilities, separate lounge, sitting room and dining/ kitchen. (The last 2 rooms with underfloor heating below the traditional Yorkshire stone floors).

There is off road parking for 4 cars making this the most perfect family vacation.

About the neighbourhood
Set in the Yorkshire Dales National Park is the little village of Grassington.
