Byre was originally part of a stone barn built in 1871 with a cowshed below, it is reached by a rough track and has been sympathetically converted into a comfortable, quirky hayloft set over three floors. Many of the original features are still in place and the windows look out over woodland, fell, cobbled yard, and farmyard. With 70 acres of grazing land around the house and the remainder peaty moorland which is perfect for the owners rare breed Dales bred ewes and white shorthorn cattle. Nethergill Farm is a natural lovers dream, located at the head of the River Wharfe, and home to a myriad of different habitats for birds, fish, mammals and insect life, including red squirrels. There is new and mature woodland, hay meadows, fells and Oughtershaw Beck just waiting to be explored.
The nature barn is a firm favourite with holiday makers and passers by alike and has a selection of maps, guides and books to make the most of the area.
