About Us and Around
Our luxury Bed and Breakfast in the Yorkshire Dales lies on the edge of stunning open countryside, facing the short lane leading up from Linton's village green. Set in pretty landscaped grounds with easy parking, outdoor seating, and a sun-trap patio to enjoy the frequent sunny days.
The Village of Linton
An unspoilt and picturesque village, Linton nestles in the beautiful countryside of the Yorkshire Dales National Park, yet it's only 10-15 minutes (8-9 miles) by car from the market town of Skipton, the Gateway to the Dales.
We are lucky that our luxury Bed and Breakfast in the Yorkshire Dales is situated in one of the prettiest villages in Wharfedale, Linton sits around the large green, which gently slopes down to the beck running through the middle of the village. With a population of ducks, it's a lovely spot to while away an afternoon feeding the ducks and relaxing in the sunshine. Facing the green is the renowned Fountaine Inn, an attraction in its own right and deservedly so. With a selection of hand-pulled beers, a good wine list, and excellent menu, it has a welcoming and relaxed atmosphere with roaring log fires on chilly days. Offering a choice of snacks to enjoy in the snug or on the green depending on the weather and contemporary dining in the spacious restaurant.
Close by are the incredible Linton Falls, carved through the limestone by the River Wharfe. A large footbridge spans the river giving spectacular views of the falls and up river to the weir where the water powered one of the first public electricity supplies in England.
A little further on and within easy walking distance is the pretty town of Grassington, it's a popular spot for afternoon tea and to browse the shops. Grassington also hosts a remarkable festival of the arts during June with an impressive line up of internationally known performance artists. In December visitors come for the Dickensian Christmas street markets when the town is thrown back to the days of Charles Dickens with lots of attractions for all the family. Linton Laithe is ideally located however you decide to enjoy the stunning Dales countryside.
Whether you're looking for time to relax in the peace and quiet or more active pursuits, rambling or trekking, mountain biking or tackling the river Wharfe by canoe, there's a side of the Dales to suit you.
