  • "A warm welcome from the owner and a delightful cottage in a perfect location."

    It's hard to imagine a more picturesque setting. Ideal walking, including for dogs, with the beautiful River Wharfe nearby. This was our first stay at Sandywood, we certainly hope it won't be the last.

    Thank you for the lovely review and we hope to see you back sometime :) Property Owner

  • "Location of Sandywood is it's biggest attribute."

    Loads of great venues close by and pubs which although pricey due to their captive audience are full of charm and character. Lovely host Helen who came to greet us and answer any Qs we had. Unfortunately we were plagued by wasps at the cottage so couldn't sit out, but I think this was just unlucky timing as other venues we visited were aswell. Very comfortable cottage well kitted out. We would definitely return.

  • "Lovely cottage in a fantastic location."

    Very clean and well equipped. Two minor issues that would prevent us re-booking this particular cottage. Downstairs bathroom is a long way to go from upstairs in the middle of the night the double bed was a little small and uncomfortable - the room is big enough for a king size.

  • "Enjoyed the house which was near the village and which was ideal for us."

    It was near a number of sights and walks. More in fact than we expected. Ideal spot for getting out in the area.

    Enjoyable stay. Listing could be clearer that towels are not included. Cottage facilities could be improved with a dishwasher.

  • "Nice cottage in a great location."

    We were very pleased with the entry at the rear where we could leave our hiking boots and clothes. The kitchen lacked some in our opinion essential supplies such as a set of sharp knives, a few chopping boards and a frying pan.

The property

A traditional detached cottage in an idyllic hillside position on the outskirts of the delightful village of Burnsall, with uninterrupted views of Burnsall Fell.

Originally a farm worker's cottage, the property has been fully renovated to provide warm, cosy accommodation with immense character and charm, retaining many original features such as the stone fireplace, oak beams and mullion windows.

The lovely enclosed garden provides an excellent spot for alfresco dining, whilst just a short walk away is an award-winning pub, serving real ales and fabulous food.

Enjoy good walking and cycling from the doorstep, or explore Bolton Abbey and the infamous Strid, a notorious stretch of deep water where the River Wharfe is forced into a deep, thundering channel.

The elegant market town of Grassington, with its cobbled square littered with local shops, pubs and cafes is just 5 miles away, making this an ideal location, to be enjoyed whatever the time of year.

About the location


Grassington 4 miles; Skipton 12 miles.

A delightful village in beautiful Wharfedale, Burnsall is situated on a bend in the River Wharfe and is framed by the dramatic backdrop of Burnsall Fell. The oldest building in the village is thought to be the 12th century church and the lovely village school is one of the oldest in Britain. Perhaps the most famous feature in the village is the bridge - a traditional Dales bridge with five stone arches. The river meanders through the village and with an extensive village green and magnificent walks in the area, this delightful area makes a superb base for exploring the Dales and all it has to offer. The village itself has a pub/hotel, and a tea room, whilst nearby Grassington and Skipton offer a fuller range of amenities. Children shouldn’t miss Burnsall’s river 'beach' - just a few minutes' walk away and a 'must' on a sunny day!
