Surrounded by magnificent scenery and within easy reach of Harrogate and Ripon, this property is a wonderful countryside retreat.

Situated in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, adjoining the owners’ B&B, this wonderful property is superbly suited for those looking for a rural escape. In the heart of the Nidderdale countryside, this traditional York stone cottage is oozing with character and charm.
Warm, welcoming and full of home comforts, you’ll be sure to feel right at home in this lovely house. Make the most of the open plan living space and cosy up in front of the open fire in the elegantly furnished living area, complete with an additional seating area. The chic kitchen offers an electric cooker with a double oven, so you and your family can enjoy perfectly home cooked meals.
Venture upstairs, where you can take your pick of one of five luxurious bedrooms, each with a Freeview TV. A sumptuous double bedroom and three zip and link twin bedrooms await you, and with each bedroom having its own en-suite facilities, you will be spoilt for choice. It really is the perfect place to lay your head for the night, ready for tomorrow’s adventures.
Perfect for discovering the Yorkshire Dales, Drovers’ Cottage is ideal for those wishing to explore this beautiful part of Yorkshire. There are many National Trust properties nearby including Fountains Abbey and Studley Royal, which make for a lovely day out.
