Special interest holidays:

If you like the great outdoors, you’ll love a break in one of our holiday cottages in the Yorkshire Dales, a land of steep valleys and rushing rivers, of charming stone villages and imposing castles, of ancient abbeys and lush green hills.

This is fantastic walking country, featuring the Pennine Way, the Dales Way and the Yorkshire Three Peaks walk. The area around Malham is particularly scenic, taking you past limestone gorges and glacial lakes. And don’t miss the dramatic Aysgarth Falls. Our Yorkshire Dales holiday cottages also make great bases for visiting historic sites such as Fountains Abbey, the extensive ruins of a great Cistercian abbey set in the wonderful gardens of Studley Royal. Bolton Abbey is also well worth a visit, while there is a beautifully-preserved castle in the pretty market town of Skipton.

Coast/Beach:

60 m to Whitby

Travel:

Leeds/Bradford Airport 45m

Distances:

fly fishing offered on 1.5 miles of the River Ure just 150 yards from the house (permit for 2 rods provided in season). Within 3 miles is an award winning dining pub in East Witton and Middleham (5 miles) boasts a selection of inns, restaurants and cafés. Jervaulx Abbey lies 1.5 miles away across parkland and the interesting market towns of Leyburn, Bedale and Masham are about 7 miles.

Further Details:

Middleham Castle and Racing Gallops, Bolton Castle, Askrigg and Aysgarth Waterfalls and the Wensleydale Creamery and Brymor Ice Cream are all nearby. Ripon 15 miles, city of York 35 miles. Shop and pub 3 miles.

There are some delightful villages to explore in the Yorkshire Dales, places like Burnsall and Grassington, with their disctinctive grey stone houses. Or for a touch of elegance take a trip to the spa town of Harrogate. You can even enjoy a Turkish Bath here in typically Victorian surroundings.

Idyllic cottage for a family holiday

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful Squirrel Bank. What a beautiful cottage in the most idyllic setting. Completely safe for children and dogs and so peaceful. The lambs were inquisitive and the dogs very well behaved. There is everything you need at the cottage. Thank you Anthony for sharing your cottage with us and for being so helpful. We would love to visit again soon

Great winter birthday weekend

  • 4 of 5

An ideal place for family and friends. Great kitchen for everyone to gather and large sitting room with sofas round a log fire. Efficient central heating, flagged floors and plenty of bathrooms make it a practical space regardless of the weather. Good walks available and short trips to Jervaulx and Masham, not forgetting tasty Brymore icecream! We would definitely re-book.

Fantastic Country Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of 11 females and stayed for three nights for my hen weekend. The house is wonderfully remote with beautiful views and heart warming log fires. It was furnished to a high standard and had more than enough appliances to keep us fed, watered and entertained for the full weekend.

We went horse riding for the day on the Saturday in Richmond at The Hollies which was only about 20 minutes away and then came back to a three course dinner around the huge kitchen table.

It was one of the best weekends in my life - perfect for hen parties or for a family stays. The owner is very responsive and co-operative and I am sure neither me or any of my hens would hesitate in recommending this property.

Thank you

Sam

Amazing property

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of 13 ladies on a (sedate!) hen weekend, and the house was absolutely perfect for us! It was brilliant value for money, the facilities were amazing, it was spacious and flexible, and the location beautiful and convenient for local sights, walking and activities. The property owner was accommodating and friendly, and communication with him was quick and clear. Quite simply, it was perfect and we can't recommend it highly enough! Thank you Anthony and Squirrel Bank.
