Tenure: Freehold

Grassington is one of the most popular of Dales villages with a strong and thriving local community, but is also a hub for visitors to this spectacular part of the Yorkshire Dales National Park with its magnificent Wharfedale scenery. Nine miles north of Skipton, Grassington has an excellent range of local and quality shops as well as a choice of well-patronised public houses and restaurants. The Town Hall provides a wide array of events throughout the year and plays host to the annual Grassington Arts Festival as well as the Dickensian Festival Weekends each November/December. Also in the village is a Primary School and Health Centre, with Upper Wharfedale Secondary School and Upper Wharfedale Rugby Union Club at Threshfield just a mile away.  

Grassington Hall is scheduled as a Grade II* building of great historical and architectural interest, parts of which date back to the 13th Century, being one of the few dwelling houses in England surviving from that time and described in many notable books as being of 'remarkable mediaeval survival'. Beautifully constructed of stone beneath a Westmoreland slate roof, among the property's notable and interesting features are characteristic mullioned windows with leaded lights, transoms and plate tracery, and stone interior archways.

Wood Lane runs from the top of Station Road and Grassington Hall is one of the village's best kept secrets, just two minutes walk to the shops yet enjoying a secluded wooded setting which would be difficult to better. Approached through impressive remote controlled gates and a sweeping gravel driveway, the stone walling around the perimeter of the Hall ensures a remarkable degree of privacy, belying the fact that the property stands in the centre of the village in just under two acres of beautifully maintained and level gardens, with a hidden doorway through the high garden wall giving access to The Square in the centre of the village. The grounds feature a considerable number of exceptionally fine and interesting trees, most of which are over 100 years old and in particular a Weeping Ash which is believed to be some 250 years old. There are level lawns, a vegetable garden, summer house, stone-flagged terraces and a beautiful Italian walled garden with hornbeam trees and cast-iron gateways, and a double garage with storage alongside and ample additional parking.  

The restoration of Grassington Hall has been a sympathetic programme carried out by local craftsman builders. The beautiful windows feature arched stone chamfers and mullions with leaded lights which are now carefully restored; the ground floors are all finished in natural stone and the first floors of engineered oak. The house is heated by a modern gas-fired system, supplying underfloor heating to the ground floor and radiators to the first floor, supplemented by log-burning/gas stove fires downstairs and in two of the bedrooms, all set in impressive fireplaces.
