Brookside Cottage B&B, Cracoe
Built in circa 1760 originally two farm workers cottages later adapted and extended, the house has a wealth of original period features with beams, stone stairs and inglenook fireplaces. The village of Cracoe lies 3 miles south of Grassington in the beautiful Yorkshire Dales National Park.
We have two charming bedrooms for you to choose from, both have comfortable king-size beds with feather and down duvets and pillows, and White Company bed linen. They are equipped with a welcome tray with tea and coffee making facilities, a hair dryer and a television. There is free superfast Wi-Fi throughout the property. Secure cycle storage is available.
Bedroom 1 – pretty and characterful ground floor room with king-size bed and ensuite wet room with shower.
Bedroom 2 – delightful and spacious first floor room with king-size bed and ensuite bathroom with bath and shower over.
Babies and young children are welcome by prior arrangement.
Double occupancy rate – £80 per night bed and breakfast.
Single occupancy rate – £55 per night bed and breakfast.
Breakfast is served in the pretty conservatory overlooking the garden. Our emphasis is on local ingredients, with bacon and sausages from the farm shop in the village and free-range eggs from a neighbouring farm. Everything is home-cooked to order and jams and marmalade are homemade. Along with the traditional English breakfast we offer fruit, cereals, pastries and porridge.
Afternoon tea with homemade cake is served in the Sitting Room, or in the garden if the weather allows, with our compliments.
Picnics are available on request at an additional charge.
We do not serve evening meals, but the Devonshire Arms Pub in the village does good traditional food in comfortable and welcoming surroundings. Alternatively the renowned Angel Inn at Hetton offers award-winning food and is just 1 mile down the road.
We will happily drop you off there if we’re around and lend you a torch for the amble home! Also just 3 miles down the road is the Fountaine Inn a Linton – a lovely pub which serves great food. And finally both Grassington and Skipton (3 and 5 miles away respectively) have a good selection of pubs and restaurants. We are happy to advise and make bookings for you.
Things To Do
Cracoe is perfectly situated for exploring the various attractions of the Yorkshire Dales with wonderful walks, charming villages, historic properties, climbing, horse-riding, mountain biking and fishing all on the doorstep.
When it comes to walking the Dales has so much to offer, whether it’s the Dales Way or a less trodden route. We can help you plan your day and lend you ordnance survey maps and guidebooks.
The historic properties of Bolton Abbey, Skipton Castle, Fountains Abbey, Harewood House and Newby Hall are all within easy reach and the elegant spa towns of Harrogate (25 miles) and Ilkley (15 miles) offer excellent shopping, cafes and restaurants.
The bustling market town of Skipton which is just down the road has plenty to offer with canal boat trips, a superbly preserved medieval castle and a popular market four days a week.
“A fantastic place to stop off at on The Way of the Roses. Pub round the corner for evening meal, beautiful home, delicious breakfast and superb hosts”
“Our stay exceeded our expectations! The family were accommodating and made us feel very welcome. There was lots of space: double bedroom with ensuite bathroom upstairs; and a private sitting room (with wood burner) and conservatory (for breakfast) downstairs. All the rooms were tastefully decorated with antiques and the wood burner was a real treat in the evenings! Philippa and Stuart made us lovely cooked breakfasts every day and were able to suggest some great days out: the Bronte parsonage in Haworth; Malham Cove and Scarr; and the walk from Starbottom to Kettlewell and back. The area was very beautiful and just what the body and soul needed coming from a big city! We cannot recommend Brookside Cottage enough and would love to visit again in future!”
“Phillippa was very welcoming and kind to two tired travellers, greeting us with tea and lovely cake. Absolutely lovely place, full of cottage charm and immaculate. We would definitely return and recommend It to others”
“What a wonderful little gem nestled in the back of the village. I little bit difficult to find but it turned out there are plenty of (narrow) little lanes joining the main road and the back lane. Phillippa and her family made us very welcome and accommodated our variable arrival time without complaint. The house is an old stone cottage and the guest rooms are on the left hand side - stone steps leading from the lounge to the bedroom and bathroom (which has what are probably the original fittings). All in good working order, including a powerful shower. The bedroom was of a decent size with period furniture, plenty of power sockets and a nice queen size bed. We chose a simple breakfast in the private breakfast room but a full cooked English breakfast was on offer if we wanted it. Do seek this place out if you are planning to be in the area”
“Very enjoyable stay in the dales. A very welcoming family and comfortable and clean accommodation. Excellent breakfast provided in the conservatory”
