The small town of Grassington is set against the backdrop of the rolling Yorkshire Dales and has long been a jumping off point for exploring the national park. If you're not an outdoorsy type, don't discount those Grassington bed and breakfasts that line up along the beautiful cobbled marketplace or the winding River Wharfe. The town is jam-packed with cosy pubs, quaint cafes and thriving restaurants, which celebrate Yorkshire dishes and produce. Come at the right time and you can enjoy several summer festivals and events. It might be a popular place, but it's retained all its charm and character.
Grassington's bed and breakfasts have long been a favourite with visitors. Though there are several hotels in town, nothing beats the homely atmosphere and warm welcome you receive at a B&B. Throw in excellent service, honed over years of experience in dealing with guests, and you couldn't find a better place to stay. If you're sold on a B&B, check out the listings on Expedia, which include detailed descriptions and photos to help you make the right choice. All you need to do is search by budget and date, and Expedia will do the hard work for you. Arranging your weekend getaway just got a whole lot easier. You'll find the bed and breakfasts in Grassington to be a cut above most. With few modern properties in town, you'll find that all the B&Bs are housed within old stone and slate cottages, or converted farmhouses just outside town. There are even a few guestrooms located above the cosy pubs. Whichever you decide to pick, you'll always have a comfortable stay when you book your accommodation through Expedia.
Checking into your B&B is always a pleasure and, while you're settling into your room, you can take advantage of the facilities. Flick on the kettle to make a cup of tea, switch on the flat-screen TV to catch up on the latest news or link up to the complimentary WiFi to start planning your trip. If you pick right, you could have your own ensuite bathroom, while more budget options might have shared family-sized facilities. Driving into town? You won't have trouble finding a bed and breakfast in Grassington that has secure parking spots, a big plus in a town where they come at a premium. Alternatively, score one of the pet-friendly B&Bs so you don't have to leave the dogs at home. Over breakfast, you can chat with the owners, many of whom have lived around Grassington for many years and are more than happy to help you plan your weekend break. Looking for a different type of holiday? Why not head for the city and the many things to do in Manchester, instead?
If you're an outdoorsy type, you've come to the right place when you stay in a Grassington bed and breakfast. The Yorkshire Dales National Park is just a stone's throw from your B&B and has limitless opportunities for outdoor adventures. Go for scenic walks along the well-marked footpaths that wind around the meadows and woodland. Alternatively, if you're looking for something a little more adrenaline-inducing, you could race around the park on a mountain bike, or even go rock climbing, during the summer. While you're there, look out for Gregory's Fort, the remains of an Iron Age settlement, or pack up your fishing rod and head to Kilnsey Park and Trout Farm, to cast a line and catch supper. When you're back in town, be sure to swing by the Grassington Folk Museum, which has artefacts and exhibits depicting life in Yorkshire during the 18th century.
