    Just had a pleasant stay at Scarah Bank Cottage. Photographs show property exactly as it is. Photograph is of number 7 NOT number 6 as a previous reviewer had incorrectly stated. Cottage was very well equipped, kitchen even had a slow cooker. Plenty of coal in the coal bunker and full bag of kindling, along with several newspapers, so no problems in having a fire. Very comfortable bed and spotless bedding. Bedroom really was a lovely, light, sunny room. Dressing room could certainly be used as another bedroom which I am very surprised it isnt as property is big enough for 3 people. Shower worked perfectly and bathroom in excellent order. Wall mounted electric heaters heated property to a lovely temperature. Only room that was uncomfortably cold was the kitchen as we couldnt get the radiator to work, but we managed fine. Nice back garden, all secure which was great for our little dog. Yes the cottage is situated on a busy road and traffic noise can be heard.

About the location


Harrogate 4 miles.

The village of Ripley in Lower Nidderdale, situated on the leeward side of the Yorkshire Dales, was designed and built, by Sir William Amcotts Ingleby in the 1830's. Sir William was so inspired by a model estate village he saw on a visit to France, that he came home and demolished the existing buildings in Ripley, beginning again from scratch to a classic French design. Today, the village is small and unspoilt and boasts a beautiful Castle in the centre (still home to the Ingleby family) with extensive gardens open to the public which include waterfalls, bridges and a lake. Deer graze in the grounds and there is a shop and tea-rooms within the Castle. The village has a large cobbled market place in the centre, overlooked by the Boar's Head - an old coaching inn which offers an excellent restaurant, bar and bistro. There is a village store and ice cream parlour where visitors can enjoy the very popular Ripley ice cream, along with a butcher’s, art gallery and much more.
