  • "An absolutely amazing break at The Folly."

    Booking was simple. Chris and Sally went out of their way to make our stay memorable. The Folly is beautifully presented and we wanted for nothing. The hot tub was an added bonus after a long day exploring The Dales. The Fountaine Inn is a must for dinner. Book early to avoid disappointment. Thank you for a wonderful time. We will definitely be back.

  • "We have just stayed at the Folly for 3 nights."

    The property was finished to a very high standard and very clean! We had everything we needed in the property and the enclosed garden was perfect to let our puppy have a little run around on his own. The hot tub was gorgeous after a long walk and not too hot like others we have been too! We loved walking through the fields and watching the lambs play. The village is small but very picturesque and the local pub was lovely and friendly. The owners of the property were very friendly and always on hand if you needed anything at all. We will be back! Thanks for a lovely stay. Louise, Chris and Pablo

    This is a fantastic cottage very clean we stayed for 3nights, plenty of feedback from the owners, there if we needed them, the pub was a short walk away serving excellent food, we had our old dog with us so couldn't do any of the walks but there seemed to be plenty to do, lots of places to visit a short drive away, had a great weekend and would definitely recommend this cottage

    Despite the harsh weather, with gorgeous sights and stunning walks, we never found ourselves bored. The hot tub was perfect and gave us the most beautiful and comfortable atmosphere for seeing the stars on clear nights. With Skipton only a 15 min drive away we never had an issue with food or anything of the sort. The owners are very kind and always happy to help and provide if you need anything. The folly is honestly such a peaceful place and perfect for a romantic getaway

  • "We have just returned from a short stay at The Folly and what can I say other than wow!"

    We booked this as our first break away as a couple after having our son 3 years ago and came away feeling well and truly relaxed. The location is the perfect base to explore the Dales and Linton itself is beautiful with a lovely pub just steps away from the property. The Folly was well equipped, spotlessly clean and felt cosy without feeling cramped due to the bright and modern decor and layout. I could have spent hours looking out of the dressing table window across the unspoilt views of the fields! At the front of the property was a beautiful hot tub with the same gorgeous views- definitely recommend getting up early and braving the cold to watch the sun rise over the fields- beautiful! Chris and Sally were very friendly and welcoming making sure we knew everything we needed to know about the property on arrival and met us to say farewell when we departed. We would definitely recommend The Folly to anyone who is looking for a relaxing break away. Thank you for having us and we hope to be back in the future!

The property

Nestled in a rural location in Linton near Grassington, North Yorkshire, with stunning views of the rolling countryside and farmland, discover The Folly.

The Folly is situated within the owner's grounds, alongside the Grade II-listed Brows View House; the reputed birthplace of Richard Fountaine.

Benefitting from a stylish studio-style layout, private patio with hot tub and set within the Yorkshire Dales National Park, The Folly welcomes two guests, ideal for a couple or solo traveller seeking to escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

Upon entering your new home-from-home, take the weight off your feet by sinking into the plush sofa, clicking on the Smart TV to saviour some light entertainment as your other half pops the kettle on.

Take advantage of a modest but superb array of kitchen appliances, perfect for rustling up home-cooked meals before tucking in and toasting to a wonderfully romantic retreat!

If you prefer to spend your evenings alfresco, why not step out onto the South facing private patio where you can bask in the indulgence of a bubbling hot tub to rest your tired legs after a long day?

Enjoy your lovely setting as the stars appear overhead, all before freshening up in the sleek shower room and climbing into a sumptuous king-size bed to catch your beauty sleep in preparation for another day of fun-filled activities.

When you’re ready to kickstart your itinerary, embark on a scenic stroll to Linton Falls which resides only paces away from your doorstep, cross the delightful Stepping Stones, before arriving at Hebden Suspension Bridge, giving you a stunning glimpse up the River Wharfe.

Close by you can also enjoy the Grass Wood Nature Reserve and Parcevall Hall Gardens, consisting of 24 acres of formal and woodland gardens, ideal for a couples picnic.

Just a short walk from Linton Falls is the beautiful village of Grassington where filming of the TV series All Creatures Great & Small takes place.

Further afield, visit the magnificent remains of Bolton Abbey or prepare to walk to the top of Beamsley Beacon, soaking in magnificent and far-reaching views of the Yorkshire landscape as you go; travel by car to the spa town of Harrogate, home to the famous Betty’s Café Tea Rooms where you can also tour the beautiful trails of RHS Garden Harlow Carr, hosting an impressive collection of events throughout the year.

Here you can also find Valley Gardens Harrogate, Harrogate Golf Club and the Royal Pump Room Museum, in addition to a plethora of shopping and eating opportunities, great for refuelling after an adventurous day!

With the city of York well within reach, and the pretty towns of Settle, Skipton and Gargrave also residing close by, you’ll never be short of things to do or see.

For a getaway in North Yorkshire that you’re not likely to forget, book a stay at The Folly.

Grassington 1 mile; Skipton 7 miles.

Threshfield is a small village in Upper Wharfedale bordering the nearby villages of Grassington, Linton, Hetton, Cracoe and Rylstone, home of the famous ‘Calendar Girls’. Threshfield is a thriving local community. A few minutes drive is Grassington, one of the most charming villages in the Yorkshire Dales National Park, where you will find traditional stone cottages, galleries, restaurants and shops, which are clustered around the cobbled market place, plus a monthly farmers' market provides a mouthwatering range of organic and homemade local produce. Visitors can experience the delight of both the Grassington Festival held in June and the Dickensian Festival during December – both well worth a visit. Situated on the River Wharfe, with the extensive Grass Woods to the north of the village, this is a superb walking area.
