“Location location location”
Reviewed 12 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

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”
Reviewed 20 July 2013 for a stay in July 2013

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.

“Excellent accommodation in wonderful location”
Reviewed 9 June 2013 for a stay in June 2013

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,

“Brilliant Location”
Reviewed 10 July 2012 for a stay in July 2012

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.

“Fabulous Cottage”
Reviewed 2 July 2012 for a stay in June 2012

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.
