  • "We stayed at the cottage as it was very convenient whilst we were exhibiting at the Harrogate Convention Centre, It was so nice to come back to a warm homely cottage after a long day in Harrogate."

    The cottage was spotlessly clean, very well equipped and very comfortable, there were 5 adults and an 8 month old baby in our group, lots of toys for the baby who was kept well entertained. the cottage was in a very peaceful location and managed to see a barn owl in the field opposite. Any questions we had were promptly answered by Michelle. would certainly recommend the cottage and wouldn't hesitate to stay there again if in the area again.

  • "Lovely, spacious cottage with everything we needed."

    Small touches make you feel very welcome from arrival. Friendly hosts. I always struggle with beds when away but they were really comfy too. Ground floor bedroom ideal for those with limited mobilities. Beautiful views and very quiet. Can see the sun set in the evening on sunny days. Plenty of outdoor space to play games with even the biggest kids. Hosts leave a large selection of toys suitable for younger children too. Home from home. A good central point for travel in various directions. Would recommend to anyone.

  • "An excellent property."

    We cannot fault it. The decor was of a high standard, it was exceptionally well stocked, plenty of space for seven of us, friendly, helpful hosts and a brilliant location for visiting Harrogate, Knaresborough and North Yorkshire. You will have a great, worry-free week here.

  • "Last minute mini break and we couldn't have asked for a better cottage or location."

    With teens it was fab to have so much space and tvs in all the bedrooms, you can also see how well the cottage is kitted out should we have had younger children/toddlers/babies. There is a separate WC which we worked out from the pics but the listing should state this as I know it would be important to some. You could easily stay and just chill at the cottage in the fabulous surroundings and location or it's perfectly placed for getting out and about in the region. We would highly recommend and would return.

    However we all did try to connect to wifi but did not work and for 7 people we did need more toilet paper and the shower which was mentioned to us was temperamental. On the whole we all enjoyed ourselves.

The property

Harrogate 8.5 miles.

Tucked away on the outskirts of the leafy village of Darley rests this charming stone-built holiday home, The Cottage at Nidderdale.

Perfectly positioned within the picturesque landscape of the Yorkshire Dales National Park, The Cottage at Nidderdale is a wonderful base for your next group adventure to the countryside.

Kick off your walking boots as you step over the threshold and into this lovely dwelling, where you'll be delighted by the rustic charm of the spacious sitting room, decorated with exposed wooden beams and framing scenic views across the surrounding dales, offering a homely setting to put your feet up with a cup of tea after a day filled with adventure.

Continuing further, enter into the farmhouse-style galley kitchen, housing all of the essential amenities necessary to prepare a heart-warming meal for the group, gathering your loved ones around the nearby dining table to serve, providing a sociable space to spend your evenings together.

If you're lucky enough to experience the warmer weather, enjoy a leisurely seat on the patio to indulge in a spot of alfresco dining, where you can soak in the scenic views across the peaceful countryside as you toast a refreshing drink to a fabulous holiday.

Completing the ground-floor is a thoughtfully laid-out double bedroom, perfect for guests with limited mobility; wake as the sun rises over the nearby dales and floods the room with natural light.

When sleep calls, climb the stairs to the first-floor where you'll find three further bedrooms, the master, fit with a sumptuous king-size bed, alongside a twin room and a snug single, offering an intimate escape from the excitement, all of which are serviced by a stylish family bathroom, fit with a tub to enjoy a leisurely soak of an evening.

Take a break from doing the cooking and take the short stroll into the heart of Darley to treat your loved ones to a hearty meal at The Wellington Inn, a traditional country village pub dating back to the 18th century, serving delicious home-cooked goods alongside a warming Yorkshire welcome.

After satisfying your appetite, get better acquainted with your surroundings and explore the picturesque landscape of the Yorkshire Dales National Park, made up of open moorland, rolling hills and quaint villages, home to Nidderdale Museum, displaying fascinating exhibitions of local history, and the unique National Trust site of Brimham Rocks.

For a night on the town, head to the nearby town of Harrogate, home to a plethora of elegant pubs and bars, or if that's not your thing, there's a host of sights and attractions across the town worth visiting, such as the Royal Pump Room Museum, recounting Harrogate's story as a spa town, and the 17 acres of colourful parkland at Valley Gardens Harrogate.

Whether you're looking for adventure or to unwind, choose The Cottage at Nidderdale.

About the location


Skipton 21 miles; York 21 miles.

The attractive spa town of Harrogate is famous for its acres of immaculate gardens, open spaces, elegant architecture and broad tree-lined boulevards. Once one of the most fashionable spas in Europe, the town continues to draw visitors from far and wide to its excellent shopping and restaurants and renowned conference centre. The countryside around Harrogate is outstandingly beautiful with Nidderdale and the Yorkshire Dales to the west and the North York Moors to the east. Close by there are many major attractions including Fountains Abbey and Studley Royal Water Garden (National Trust) and the historic houses of Norton Conyers and Newby Hall & Gardens. However many visitors will be more than happy to enjoy a day in the town itself - walking in the Valley Gardens followed by afternoon tea at Bettys, the town's world-famous tea rooms.
