Ideally situated on the edge of Pateley Bridge and surrounded by spectacular scenery, it is with easy reach of Grassington, Ripley, Ramsgill and the majestic spa town of Harrogate.

The area boasts local attractions such as the beautiful Fountains Abbey, Brimham Rocks and Stump Cross Caverns. Pateley Bridge is a very traditional town. It is home to England's oldest sweet shop, spectacular riverside walks and views that will take your breath away.

Grassfield Hall can also be hired as wedding venue with its spectacular settings and scenery to make your perfect day. See our wedding page for more details.

‘Really enjoyed working with paints, learning different techniques. I hadn’t done art since school but Jane was happy to cater for my inexperience. I found it a really relaxing and enjoyable treat in beautiful surroundings with lovely food and company too’.  
— Sophie
‘Jane created a very comfortable, friendly and informal space in which to explore my creativity.  I don’t consider myself at all ‘arty’ or particularly visually aware but I felt encouraged and inspired to have a go and play with a rich variety of watercolour materials.  Also very nice to meet and chat with other participants.  A very enjoyable experience.’
