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.

    As a party of 7 this was an ideal base for friends to meet up! The cottage was very clean, and had everything we needed for our stay. The furnishings and fittings were of high quality, and the bathrooms and showers were very good. A nice touch to have bathrobes for us all.The chocolate cake left by the housekeeper,Maggie, was well received by us all!! I have scored it 10 our of 10, but would score higher if it were possible!!! Excellent self catering cottage.

    I cannot praise Drovers Cottage enough. As well as Maggie and Bill helping to make it a perfect break. I know, I also speak for my brother, his wife, my daughter and partner and our friends who stayed this was the well chilled break we were all after.

    Drovers Cottage is a luxury home in the style of a shooting lodge. Everything about it is class and comfort. We received a very warm welcome from the housekeeper and her husband and a delicious chocolate cake. I can't fault the house. My only reservation concerns the information about the location. The house is very isolated, nothing within walking distance, and though the location is beautiful, particularly in good weather, a car and satnav are absolute essentials. If you are prepared for that then Drovers Cottage is a truly wonderful holiday home.

    Overall good but lacking some of the details like some essential family kitchen ware. Also had a problem with no hot water on the last day. Paid well over 2,000 for two weeks, which felt expensive. Lovely quiet location though.
