Lovely cottage in a beautiful village.. Very comfortable and well equipped. We had a great week, lots of walks. Highly recommend the pub next door.
Well what can I say.. ....?
This place is a hidden gem.
You have to go to appreciate it.
As soon as we entered the door we felt at home. Cosy, warm, quirky little house!!! I say little but really quite spacious for 5 people.
We’ve been staying in cottages around the dales for over 10 years but this cottage stole the show!!
Just book it! You’ll love everything about it.
Perfect location, amazing owner !
This place will take a lot of beating.
Love you Sandy Cottage..... see you again x
Lovely cottage in a beautiful setting.. .. only thins I’d say is that friends hired a nearby cottage for the weekend and they had some very useful books in local walks and an IS map of the area - would have been very useful!
Lovely, relaxing stay in this comfortable, beautifully clean and well equipped cottage, which had everything we needed for a perfect holiday.. Wonderful location in idyllic village, with great walks in the breath-taking Yorkshire Dales from the door and a gastro pub just a few steps away. Sunny weather meant we enjoyed sitting out in the lovely patio garden most days. A week wasn't long enough! We'll definitely be returning. Thank you.
The cottage was beautiful and in the most stunning of settings in a village full of character, yet peaceful.. Plenty of walks in the area. Dogs loved it.
We were delighted with the cottage and the surroundings.. The cottage was well supplied and kept clean and was in a charming village with good access to lower Wharfedale and surroundings.
We would thoroughly recommend the cottage for a short or longer holiday.
Lovely cottage in a beautiful location especially if you intend to do some walks..
Lovely, good sized, comfy cottage in a quiet village location which provided the perfect base for a relaxing weekend..
Really felt like a home from home.. Fabulous.
The location of Sandy cottage is perfect.. Linton village is both beautiful and brilliantly situated for days out in the local area. The cottage itself is stylish yet very comfortable. We plan to stay again. Thank you!
Great cottage in a fantastic location, pub next door serves great food and drink.. Some lovely walks close by. Highly recommend.
A lovely cottage in a lovely location, an excellent weeks holiday Apr 2017
If you get the chance to book this cottage - do it! It's THE perfect place to base your Dales holiday. So much to do in the area. We have 2 active boys age 10 & 12 who were occupied making friends on the green playing ball games.
The cottage has everything you need, including a super useful tumble dryer for when you come back damp from the inevitable Yorkshire downpours. Kitchen is small but adequate for home cooking.
The pub next door but one is a real selling point. Fab food , lovely decor & take away chips!
Highlight for us was family trout fishing at Kilnsey Park. The Kids caught 5 fish themselves which we brought home & barbecued in the garden! Yum. Hope to return to this lovely cottage & area again.
Fantastic location and a homely cosy cottage.
The Cottage is in a lovely village and is nicely decorated. It was very well equipped and had everything you could possibly need. There were several walks we discovered from the door to the nearby villages. Overall a lovely Cottage in a lovely peaceful location.
Everything about Sandy Cottage is just perfect for our needs, the location, size and style. Additionally it is furnished in a very eclectic and stylish way that really suits us as a family, it felt like home the moment we walked through the door. Every need is met, everything was of good quality and in perfect condition, we have stayed in many cottages in this area over the years and this is now our favourite, it was hard to leave.
On entering Sandy Cottage the smell of clean fresh linen was wonderful. The cottage was spacious, exceptionally clean and very well equipped. An excellent location. I would say the best cottage we have stayed in in the UK. We enjoyed the scenery and fly fishing on the river Wharfe.
Overall, we had a very good time in the Yorkshire Dales. Sandy Cottage is cosy and comfortable. The location is the top of all, it could not be better than this. Would happily recommend to any friends and family who are thinking of holidaying in the area.
The situation of the property was on a lovely green with picturesque buildings nearby and excellent walks.
The cottage was very cosy and felt like a home-from-home. The village was beautiful and quiet so a great place to be located and good walks from the house. Nice our dog could stay in the cottage too. WiFi was good to have.
A great location within easy reach of Grassington and good local walks. The cottage was ideal for us and we hope to make a return booking.
The cottage was situated in a beautiful place which gave us easy access to Burnsall where we went to a wedding. A great place for walking and the Fountain Pub did amazing food. We had a great weekend.
An excellent location in a beautiful setting. There are many walks from the cottage, we especially loved the one down to Linton Falls and carrying onto Grassington. It is also central to many other Dales destinations. Highly recommended.
The location of the cottage is truly excellent and the cottage was very cosy and welcoming. Would stay here again and recommend to others. The lounge was a great size and the downstairs had a good layout, including a second toilet and outside courtyard.
We have had a lovely time here as the cottage is like a home from home; very cosy and welcoming. Would look to come again, and would gladly recommend to family and friends.
Sandy Cottage was in a brilliant situation in a beautiful hamlet with walks from the door. The cottage was very well equipped and you just felt at home straight away.
Back again for another visit. Love this village as it has family connections - sadly no members of the family live in the village now.
The weather, for once, was amazing - used a cardigan once!
Green very busy but it added to the atmosphere and calmed down mid week.
Ducks and Geese fab - got attached to the Mum with 13 gooslings - so fascinating to watch.
Friends joined me for 5 nights - they found the stairs very steep - just to be aware - it is an old cottage and to be expected.
Kitchen well appointed and good to have the extra loo downstairs.
The towel provision is still poor - one small bath towel per person - still not acceptable for a weeks stay - just where are the hand towels. And no hairdryer!
As previous reviewer patio area small but not looked after. As the weather was lovely spent considerable time cleaning the patio table which was particularly dirty with ingrained dirt. Plants need trimming back and tidying too.
Please please put a mirror between the door and wardrobe in the twin room - impossible to dry hair and look in the mirror on wardrobe door without bending down - not a comfortable experience. A very low cost mirror would change all this.
Having said this - will be booking again as absolutely love the location and it is a lovely cottage. Just find the above niggles annoying as so easily rectified.
Food - Fountain very very convenient and good food. Lovely walk to Grassington over Linton Falls. We had one good meal at Devonshire Arms - and one not so good - we did choose the early menu for both meals - the main menu looked good. Not sure what happened on our second visit.
A very well presented cottage in a superb location but bath towels are tiny; agree other suggestions that you take your own bath sheets. The stair is steep, not a negative but something to be aware of. A dog friendly pub/restaurant is just yards away, busy but welcoming with good food. The village green with its resident ducks (and weekender children) is very picturesque. Another dog friendly pub, the Old Hall, serving lovely food is an easy 15 minute walk across the fields at Threshfield. Nearby Percevall Hall Garden is also to be recommended. After a week we left feeling we had only scratched the surface of what the area has to offer. A return visit to Wharefdale is a must and Sandy Cottage in Linton is ideally located and we will not hesitate to book again. Our only small gripe was that the very small patio area had not been cleaned in months; we had wonderful weather during our stay and thought it reasonable to have expected the outdoor area to have been up to scrach in June particularly as there was no yard brush for us to tidy up the patio ourselves. Overall though, a well equipped, comfortable cottage, finished to a high standard, good value for money in a beautiful part of the country,
Delightful location in an gorgeous village with an excellent pub next door.
Very good location for walking. Linton is a very pretty village. There is a super pub next door. Cottage was perfect for our family. Countryside around is idyllic.
Cosy cottage in very cold weather. Excellent location. Pub almost next door!
Absolutely perfect cottage in a perfect location, wonderful. We couldn't have wished for anything better, shame we couldn't have stayed longer but can't wait to go back and would definitely recommend to our friends and family. Fantastic walks on your doorstep, lovely Pub/Restaurant 2 doors down. Oozed character and charm, just perfect.
Just spent a weekend at Sandy Cottage,Linton. What a great place.
Totally clean and with all the little touches that make you feel welcome.
Outstanding location surrounded by stunning countryside and just a
few paces from the local pub. Heaven!
I think that this was one of the
most comfortable cottages that we have had the pleasure in staying at. Situated adjacent to a great pub and in easy stride of some beautiful walks.
The accommodation was extremely well appointed and we found ourselves
wanting for nothing.
Would highly recommend this to anyone.
The location of the property is superb. The village is very pretty and the cottage looks out on to a green with a beck and stone bridges. There is also a nice pub a couple of doors away. A short walk past Lintin Falls takes you to Grassington and numerous walks can be made from the cottage.
Know the area very well and this is a perfect location. Linton is a beautiful Wharfedale village close to Grassington
+ Location Location Location - fabulous
+ Design and layout
+ Plenty of storage - useful front porch for coats and shoes
+ Welcome pack
+ Good pub two doors away providing excellent food
+ Linton Laithe - excellent full english breakfast - ring to book
+ Good value
- Towels inc - one small!! bath towel each and only two hand towels (bathroom and toilet) not acceptable. Really should offer a hand towel for each person and one in the kitchen. The size of the bath towel would not cover your modesty if you didn't have a dressing gown with you. I had to go out and buy a bath sheet.
- No hair dryer
- no wifi (land line given as reason not to have - would suggest sharing with next door if poss as they have wifi)
- No shelf for toiletries in the bathroom
- No radio
- cars turning in front of cottage due to dead end and busy pub
Despite a few minus points can't wait to stay again.
Sandy Cottage was a fabulous base to return to after a day walking out in the Dales and across the moors. The cottage was beautifully decorated and comfortably equipped - so good that we didn't want to leave! Linton is a picturesque village, with walks from the doorstep. The village green complete with resident ducks and the river running through adds to the beauty. The Fountaine Inn, just a lethal few yards from the cottage, offers excellent food and a welcoming atmosphere. What more could you want? Can't wait to return.
Everything was great. It helped that the weather was perfect. Walking straight from the door. Wonderful pub two doors away. Perfect.
It was a beautiful cottage in a fabulous village location. The pub nearby was fantastic and did great meals.
We had a great time especially our 5 year old daughter who we could not keep away from the little stream (very safe) and the ducks. The pub next door was excellent and very welcoming of children.
Our only minor gripe would be that the lounge furniture could be more comfortable.
Over all a great place and we would go back.
Just wanted to say we had a fabulous time at your beautiful cottage in Linton. It was really homely and had everything we needed. There were some nice touches - the delicious biscuits, the tea and coffee, but most of all the lovely comfortable beds! I'm sure we'll be back again! Thanks again, the week was bliss!
Fantastic location for walking and exploring the Dales. The kids made friends and played out on the green most evenings. We had a wonderful holiday despite the weather.
The village was lovely and the food in the local pub excellent. This is a great venue for kids as we felt our daughter was safe at all times.
The cottage, situated in a beautiful village, was so cosy, well equipped and spotless. Lovely touch with a welcome pack provided. Bed lovely and comfy. Excellent shower and hot water always available. Great pub within ten seconds offering superb food. A gem of a place!
Sandy Cottage was an excellent base for exploring Wharfedale and beyond. We loved the fact that there are literally walks on your doorstep! The cottage was excellent too - really lovely, warm and very comfortable. The close proximity to the Fountaine Inn was another bonus! We had a wonderful time. Thank you.
Really lovely cottage in a beautiful setting.
We were very impressed with Sandy Cottage it was beautifully furnished real home from home. The location was fantastic and was enjoyed by all. We have a puppy and were a bit dubious about a dog friendly cottage having not used one before but we were pleasantly surprised and Sandy Cottage is a credit to its owner.
Linton is a lovely village and the pub was extremely good. Lots of lovely walks around the village for the dog.
A lovely cottage in beautiful location. This cottage was a perfect base for a lovely holiday in the splendid Dales. The cottage is a credit to its owner and we would and have recommended it to our friends.
The cottage was in a lovely location with the view of the village green from our front window and lots of ducks for our little boy to see. Ideal base for looking round the Yorkshire Dales, the property had everything that you need to have a comfortable stay.
The cottage was absolutely fabulous and felt like home from home.
A good base for a walking holiday and exploring the Dales. Very pretty village, with pub close by serving excellent food.
This property is one of the nicest we have stayed in. It was lovely to have really high quality fixtures and fittings, a really cosy, comfy and welcoming home from home.
We had an excellent time, the cottage was a picture postcard and all the locals were very friendly. There are plenty of walks all with wonderful views. We just wished we had booked for the week.
A superb area and a delightful cottage. Excellent pub in the village.
Lovely location - excellent pub next door.
Tranquil setting in a very pretty hamlet. Excellent walks from the doorstep.
A lovely cottage in a quiet and beautiful setting.
The cottage was well placed for touring the Dales, there are plenty of walks from the cottage door and VERY good food at the pub next door! Very familiar territory for us, the landscape, not the pub!
The cottage was spacious, extremely well-equipped and in a very good location particularly for walking. It was also ideally placed for eating out at very good local pubs.
A beautiful property. A lovely setting with friendly people. A perfect retreat.
Sandy cottage was perfect. Beautifully decorated and the attention to detail was superb. A great location for exploring the dales in a peaceful location. We have stayed in a number of cottages throughout the country and this is the best yet!
