LOCATION
Located only 10 miles north of Skipton, the characterful and friendly village of Grassington is in the beautiful Yorkshire Dales National Park and comprises charming stone-built cottages and boasts a busy village centre. The village is a focal point of local and tourist activity and has a good variety of amenities including shops, public houses, eatery's, a primary school, church, doctor's surgery, dentist, vibrant village hall and a bus service in addition to an excellent community life.

The village is located on the banks of the river Wharfe and hosts a splendid music and arts festival each June and the celebrated Dickensian Festival each December, popular with tourists and locals alike, and is surrounded by hills and open countryside with numerous magnificent walks from the village itself or within a very short drive.

DESCRIPTION
Established in 1982, The Mountaineer has been under its current ownership since 1997 and specialises in the sale of outdoorwear, walking equipment, walking boots and also sells some fashionwear.
