Escape to Grassington in the Yorkshie Dales National Park for a country cottage holiday. This popular market town sits amidst the limestone scenery of Upper Wharfedale. This pretty location, with its cobbled village square, has all the atmosphere of a bygone age, but there is plenty going on. Grassington Festival is an annual highlight, with musical and artistic entertainment that boasts famous names during the last two weeks of June each year. Every September, visitors enjoy the nostalgia of a 1940s themed weekend. If you like local history, Grassington Folk Museum houses artefacts in two miner's cottages from the 1700s.
