Description

This detached house has stunning views over the roof tops of Grassington and across beautiful Wharfedale. The house is reached by a 100-yard unmade track, ideal for 4-wheel drive family cars, and is ideal for relaxing and from which to enjoy all the Dales has to offer. This lovingly furnished home from home offers a welcoming open plan living space boasting a warming wood burner, and the first floor bedrooms offers views across the countryside, over to Wharfedale and Yarnbury. Walking, touring or cycling is available direct from the door. The compact, west-facing, enclosed garden has a large patio and is an ideal place to sit and enjoy the sunset and a barbecue.

Intake Bungalow is about 350 yards from the centre of Grassington, which offers a range of country shops, pubs and restaurants, with both fine dining and wholesome pub food on offer. There is also a traditional Yorkshire fish and chip shop and an Indian takeaway. The charming cobbled square and the pretty stone cottages make this one of the honeypot villages of the Yorkshire Dales National Park.

In the summer, Grassington plays host to the Grassington Festival which attracts famous bands, singers, poets and artists. In September, the 1940’s Weekend transports us back to WWII, with lots of fantastic uniforms as well as the fashion of the time combine with the music and dances that defined an era. In December, the whole village is transformed into a Victorian Christmas card for 2 weekends. The Dickensian Festival really gets everyone in the Christmas mood.

The bustling market town of Skipton is only 9 miles away and boasts a Norman castle standing proudly at the top of its wide cobbled high street. Canal boats nestle in the canal basin in the centre of the town and you can book excursions from here.

Other nearby attractions include Bolton Abbey with its majestic riverside ruins, and Brimham Rocks, which is an area filled with strange rock formations and provides a fantastic natural adventure playground for the whole family. Shop, pub and restaurant ¼ mile.

About the local area

Beautiful Wharfedale is one of the longest valleys in the Yorkshire Dales and it has a surprise in store for those who follow it southwards.


The River Wharfe rises on high moors and tumbles through the tiny villages of Yockenthwaite and Hubberholme, last resting place of the writer JB Priestley. Then it's on to Buckden, where Wharfedale properly begins.

But this is a Yorkshire dale of two landscapes. To the north, Upper Wharfedale is about high moors and more robust countryside, while Lower Wharfedale, beginning at the villages of Grassington and Threshfield, is very different. The land changes from high moor to a rich river valley with green and lush woodland - unusual in the Dales - with rocky outcrops. One of the most famous is Kilnsey Crag, near the village of Kilnsey. The dramatic overhanging limestone crag has long been a favourite with climbers.

On the hills above the River Wharfe, the remains of Iron Age and Bronze Age settlements and burial cairns can still be seen.

Passing between Grassington and Threshfield, the valley heads down to Burnsall, the waterfalls at The Strid and to the striking remains of beautiful Bolton Abbey.

Lower Wharfedale is a great place for nature lovers. The action of glaciers during the last Ice Age, plus hundreds of years of farming, have created many wildlife habitats. There are hillside streams, rocky limestone outcrops, grass meadows, bogs and dry-stone walls, all to be seen and enjoyed.
