Description

Standing in beautiful Nidderdale countryside, Drovers’ Cottage provides a haven for those who appreciate home comforts in elegant surroundings, making this property a true home from home. Adjoining the owners’ B&B and constructed of traditional York stone, it has been carefully furnished and co-ordinated throughout, and provides spacious accommodation for a family get-together or a group of friends. From here you can explore the magnificent scenery of the Yorkshire Dales. The National Trust properties of Fountains Abbey and Studley Royal make for an interesting day out. Brimham Rocks, also a National Trust area, provides plenty of scope for exploring the great outdoors. Alternatively, the spa town of Harrogate, with its wealth of individual shops, pubs and restaurants, will definitely satisfy the shopaholics - but do take time out to have afternoon tea at Bettys. The whole area is well served with places to eat, including the renowned Grantley Arms just 3 miles, the Sportsmans at Wath, and The Yorke Arms, all of which are reached by a lovely drive through wonderful scenery. Shop and pub 2½ miles, restaurant 2 miles.

About the local area

Known for its splendid Victorian architecture, huge parkland gardens and its health spas, Harrogate has plenty to offer for a great break in the country. While it lies just 20 miles from York, Harrogate and its surrounding area have enough attractions to make it an ideal holiday destination in its own right.

Among the highlights here are the famous Pump Rooms, which continue to function today just as they did when they pumped water to the Royal Baths from the mid-ninteenth-century.

Also well worth a visit are the parkland areas of Harlow Carr Gardens and Valley Gardens, both of which are open all year round and have a wealth of fascinating plants and wildlife. Between enjoying the gardens, you may want to visit the famous Betty's tea shop for a spot of lunch.

Many of the attractions, however, lie just outside Harrogate itself. For example, Knaresborough Castle -- situated on the York Road, three miles out of town - dates back to the 12th century and sits gloriously on the banks of the river. A little further out (15 miles) is the World Heritage Site of Fountains Abbey and Studley Royal. Built in the 12th century, the abbey grounds include a water mill and an exquisite Elizabethan mansion. The grounds of Studley Royal, meanwhile, are home to more than 500 deer.

Further highlights include Harewood House (7 miles out of town), Skipton Castle (20 miles) and the Settle to Carlisle Railway line, which starts at Settle (30 miles from Harrogate) and is regarded as one of the most spectacular lines in the country.
