  • Beautiful and spacious holiday home sleeping 2 guests
  • Nestled within the rolling green hills of Summerbridge in Nidderdale
  • Take a leisurely stroll to your welcoming local pub to take refuge following a day of discovery
Property code: G0063

A spacious rural retreat in a sleepy village located within the gorgeous Nidderdale area, within driving distance of the cosmopolitan Harrogate, offering a best of both worlds' getaway to the Dales.

This cosy cottage in the tranquil village of Summerbridge is an ideal rural retreat for couples and their canine companion. Nestled amongst the rolling hills of the Nidderdale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, there are plenty of walks on your doorstep, allowing all of you to soak up the stunning scenery. This property offers guests the chance to enjoy the country life with the village’s pubs and amenities within 1.5 miles; for something more cosmopolitan, the vibrant spa town of Harrogate is only 10 miles away. Alternatively, stay in and relax in the luxurious roll-top bath.

This attractive, characterful, stone cottage has plenty of original features, but the use of a palette of whites and creams throughout gives it a contemporary feel and creates a sense of light and space. The L-shaped, open-plan living area has a modern, well-equipped kitchen and stylish glass dining table, whilst tucked around the corner, the lounge feels snug and welcoming with its wood burner. Upstairs, you will find the stunning king-size bedroom with its sloping ceilings and exposed beams and an exquisite bathroom with free-standing bath and separate shower. Outside, there is an enclosed courtyard, where you can enjoy a spot of al fresco dining.

The charming market town of Pateley Bridge (4.5 miles) is typical of this area and has an array of independent shops/eateries. Within the Nidderdale AONB, there are plenty of walking trails that two-legged and four-legged guests of all abilities will enjoy; for something different, head to the National Trust’s Brimham Rocks to marvel at the amazing rock formations. If your furry friend needs a rest day, you could head to RHS Harlow Carr (12.5 miles) or Ripley Castle (6 miles); both offer lovely days out, but dogs aren’t allowed. Harrogate is definitely worth a visit, as is Ripon (13 miles).

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

  • 1 king-size bedroom
  • 1 en-suite bathroom with roll-top bath, walk-in shower and WC

My husband and I have stayed in many holiday cottages over the years and folly rigg rates as one if the best. It was spacious, scrupulously clean, and very tastefully decorated. We also received a very generous welcome hamper. I would rate this cottage 5 star. A credit to the owners. Thanks. Christine and George Everett. Co. Durham.

Lovely cottage warm and welcoming but restrictions to head height upstairs for taller people. The courtyard garden is not very dog friendly and there arent any rural walks direct from the cottage other than by way of the busy roadway. Lovely area for exploring well served with local shops and eateries.
