Whilst we are all about rest and relaxation, there’s never a dull day at Grassington House, and we regularly prepare engaging events for our guests and the local Grassington community to enjoy.

Whether it’s a tasting here in the restaurant, a guest chef or an event out and about such as the Grassington Food and Drink Festival, a key part of the community here, we keep it interesting and get as involved as we possibly can.

We do hope you’ll join us
