Property code: 76511

Located in rural Nidderdale near Pateley Bridge, this is the perfect holiday pad for a countryside-loving couple and their four-pawed pal. Wander the owners’ 29-acre woodland, cosy up by the wood burner and when you want a change of scene, check out cosmopolitan Harrogate, just 12 miles away.

Approached by a steep country lane lined by dry stone walls and green hills, this one-bedroomed abode is less than half a mile from the village of Summerbridge. Head through the hallway and you’ll step into an open-plan living space where dual-aspect windows allow natural light to flood into the lounge area – a perfect spot to stretch out with the dog at your feet as you watch TV and, in the cooler months, bask before the wood burner. Behind, the kitchen area has all you’ll need for fuss-free food prep, including a Nespresso Vertuo machine for your morning coffee. The dining suite has seats for four in case you’re expecting guests and a shared laundry room is available for use by arrangement with the owners. When it’s time to sleep, stairs lead up to a large double bedroom with some stunning timber beams and picture windows offering woodland views. A modern bathroom completes the comfort. Sit in the garden furniture or enjoy leisurely walks through the private woodland – this property really is a dog-owner’s dream.

Set beside the River Nidd, Summerbridge is located on the Nidderdale Way, a long-distance footpath that runs for 53 miles through the AONB. Stroll into the village for vital supplies, or drive to Harrogate for the ultimate in upmarket retail, dining and indulgent experiences. For the full flavour of local life, don’t miss dramatic Brimham Rocks (1 mile), or Pateley Bridge (4 miles), a picture-postcard town that’s home to England’s Oldest Sweet Shop. For a change of terrain, the gorgeous gardens and grounds at Ripley Castle (6.5 miles) are dog friendly.

Nice clean modern barn with all necessities, nice view of field & wildlife. 2 mins drive to Brimham Rocks. Only downside is that its situated on a steep road which was quite busy & as the shared garden was not secure we werent able to sit outside & let dog off lead. Unfortunately this wasnt made clear on website. We walked to nearest pub approx 1.5Read morem; locals really friendly, road back was very dark and on a hill so take a torch & make sure youre fit enough to walk the bank. Lovely stay had! Hide

Access to the private woodland for safe, livestock-free walkies is a definite highlight of this cottage for dog-owners. Were runners/hikers and the location was perfect with The Nidderdale Way in easy reach. Weve stayed in better equipped/cosier places, however we were perfectly happy & comfortable here for our stay.

The property was lovely, had everything we needed and more. Beautiful views and a very pretty and friendly village and surrounding areas. Great places to visit all within reach. Only thing missing was a local pub. The closest one in Dacre didn't do food this week 11th-18th Aug!!

Property well furnished and comfortable. It was in a good location although set right on the roadside which was very busy at certain times of the day. We felt it lacked some basic self catering facilities if you want to cook yourself and the bed was very basic and uncomfortable. woods behind the house were great especially if you have a dog and theRead more views from the lounge window across fields was beautiful. We saw deer crossing the lane into the field and birds of prey hovering in the sky. Hide

Good, well equiped place to explore the beautiful Yorkshire Dales. Close to the impressive Brinham Rocks. Unfortunately the pub in Summerbridge is closed. Taller people like me have to mind there heads upstairs and might have problems using the shower properly. Beside thid, we fully recommend The Owls Retreat.
