Details

Lovely homely, welcoming cottages on a working farm in beautiful surroundings within walking distance of Harrogate. Well equipped kitchen, toys, books and games including Wii console and wifi.

Fantastic well equipped welcoming holiday cottages on a working farm in the village of Killinghall, just outside Harrogate and with very easy access to Harrogate, the conference centre and lots of tourist atttractions.

Cowslip cottage sleeps 5 with 2 single occasional beds if required and Humblebee cottage sleeps 5 -6 with a downstairs bedroom and adjoining wetroom. Both cottages are full of character, have everything you will need for a short stay or a long holiday. Toys and games, highchairs and cots all provided free of charge, there is plenty to do on a rainy day.

Great mobile reception and free wifi. Our guests always comment on the comfy beds and being the perfect location to explore Yorkshire. The bus stops at the end of the farm lane with a regular service to Harrogate (where further buses or trains go directly to York and Leeds as well as many other destinations) or Ripon via the beautiful village of Ripley which is definately worth a stop to explore Ripley Castle, the lovely gift shops and of course the world famous Ripley Icecream!

The train station in Harrogate makes for easy journeys to and from Edinburgh and London. Harrogate is just a 30 minute walk from the farm or 5 minutes by car or bus, where you will find lots of shops, restaurants and the beautiful valley gardens which are open all year round and are free of charge.

The beautiful market town of Knaresborough is just a 10 minute drive away on lovely country roads passing Nidd and Nidd Hall on route. There are lots of unique independant shops, lovely cafe's, restaurants and boating on the river. The market is held on a Wednesday and lots of lovely local produce can be found there. We can advise confidently on Knaresborough as our cookshop was there for 10 years before we moved it to the farm.

Ripon is just 20 minutes away which is another market town, the market being on a Thursday there. Just a couple of minutes past there is the Lightwater Valley Theme Park with rides and attractions for all the family. We have the very quaint village of Ripley on our doorstep with a castle, gift shops, famous icecreams, an open farm etc.. York is a 30 - 45 minute drive away (or you can travel by train or bus). Pately Bridge is just a short drive and is well worth a visit with lots of lovely walks. We provide lots of toursit information in the cottages and are very happy to advise on places to see and do while you are here and also very happy to show you around the farm and meet some of our lovely cows and calves

. If you are lucky you may get to help feed the calves with their buckets of milk! Probably our best unique feature is our onsite cookshop and coffeeshop which is open evey Thursday, Friday and Saturday 10am - 6pm. The shop has thousands of cookware gadgets, tools, electical products, gifts and more AND the coffeeshop serves excellent homemade scones and cakes using local (or homegrown where possible) produce along with Taylors of Harrogate Yorkshire Tea and our now famous milkshakes served in glass wellies!!

Please contact us if you have ANY questions and we will do our best to help.

Additional Directions Information

Take the A 61 north from Harrogate to Ripon. When you reach the Skipton Road roundabout (you will see The Little Wonder pub and Indian Restaurant) you need to go straight on towards RIPON. Follow this road for about half a mile and you will pass a car sales garage (Motorhouse Cars) on your left. Once you get to the top of the hill you will see a sign that reads 2RUMBLE STRIPS", indicate right and the lane is exactly where it reads "SLOW" across the road. There is a white marker (in daylight it is easier to look for the line of trees along the lane). Proceed over the cattle grid and along the drive (do not take the fork to Spruisty House) you will pass a little bungalow and then reach farm buildings. The road passes between the big wooden and brick farm building and the main farmhouse.
