    The cottage itself was adequate although the stair to the bedroom and bathroom were slightly demanding.

    The cottage itself was adequate although the stair to the bedroom and bathroom were slightly demanding. An alarm went off just before midnight on the Friday and carried on for at least five hours before, we presume, the battery ran out. The owners of the attached cottage on the other side had to go through "our" back garden to get to theirs. Our dog was not impressed and this made it insecure for him and technically we could not leave the back door open or anybody could have got in! Sadly the property across the road was also having work carried out with what sounded like a stone angle grinder being used to cut paving slabs. The fish & chip shop just 200 yards down the road was fantastic and worth a visit along with the butchers whose meat we could not fault. Ideal base for visiting the likes of Ripon, Harrogate, Knaresborough etc along with Fountains Abbey, Brimham Rocks and the Wensleydale cheese factory.

About the location

KIRKBY MALZEARD

Ripon 7 miles; Pateley Bridge 8 miles.

Pretty Kirkby Malzeard is one of a scattering of delightful villages, idyllically situated amidst the stunning moorland scenery and tapestry of lush green meadows of Nidderdale. The village is well served by a pub, a village shop, tea rooms and a local garage. The area is a walkers paradise with many footpaths and bridleways wending their merry way through the beautiful Dales countryside, whilst painters and photographers are also well catered for. The surrounding area boasts plenty of local attractions including the ancient monastic ruins of Fountains Abbey and beautiful Studley Royal Gardens (National Trust), Lightwater Valley Theme Park, the pretty village of Masham with its famous brewery and of course the cathedral city of Ripon. You will love exploring the impressive Brimham Rocks - 50 acres of huge rocks, weathered over the years into strange shapes giving rise to names like The Eagle and Dancing Bear. Both the Yorkshire Dales and North York Moors National Parks are within easy driving distance, as are the towns of Harrogate, Knaresborough and the City of York.
