A great house in a great space! Spacious, three-bedroom cottage set in beautiful Nidderdale countryside, very close to Harrogate, York and Leeds. Set on a working smallholding, with pigs, hens, guinea fowl and peafowl. Ideal for families, and for local trips and days out in York, Harrogate and the Dales. Fabulous for walkers: Nidderdale is exceptional and our local reservoirs, Swinsty, Fewston and Thruscross offer a treasure trove of beautiful walks--all only a 5 min drive away.
What makes Carr Farm Cottage is the utter serenity and beauty of location, and the fact that it is on a 10-acre working smallholding. You can mingle with pigs, chickens, guinea fowl, peafowl, dogs and cats. But at the same time we are so convenient for Harrogate, Leeds and York
Guests can access all the usual amenities and if requested, can help with feeding time on the smallholding!
Interaction with guests
Limited, owing the the fact that we both work in Harrogate, nearby. But we are always happy to deal with any issues or questions that guests have promptly. We are also always happy to show people around the smallholding and explain about how we keep our animals.
My husband, Peter, is available to help with guidance on any cycling routes in the Dales or nearby.
Other things to note
All our birds are free range with all the undoubted benefits and obvious issues that this brings! We have a cockerel that crows! And the peafowl are known to bark from time to time. Otherwise, peaceful.
NO SMOKING IN THE HOUSE.
If breakages occur, either replace like with like (Harrogate very nearby with excellent shopping facilities) or leave an amount to cover the approximate post of replacement.
We expect guests to not make loud noises and to generally behave in a considerate manner. This is a very peaceful part of the country!
I am a Yorkshire woman and very happy living here on our smallholding in Nidderdale. I am a local politician and wife to Peter (avid cyclist and local financial services business owner) and sons Joel (19) and Ethan (16).
I am looking forward to welcoming people to our very special part of the world. Nidderdale is a true gem: beautiful and peaceful, but also very convenient for local towns and cities such as Harrogate and Leeds.
