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.

The space

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

Guest access

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.

Helen's place is wonderful. A beautiful home. All we needed and more. Lovely, warm and a beautiful setting. A great location to spend the day exploring Yorkshire and beyond, then home to relax in the evening. Thanks for a great stay Helen.

Lovely place in a great location with a great pub nearby. We were there for two nights and it was great for that long of a stay.

A wonderful cottage, Helen is a fantastic host and has made sure that it really is a 'Home from Home'. So many extras in the house games and info etc. And lots of wildlife to enjoy too. Thanks so much for a lovely few days family holiday :)

What a holiday. Thanks so much to Helen for opening up her lovely home and for her hospitality. A truly amazing experience. Helen was the perfect host with a long list of suggestions and a genuine passion for the region... her home and nature. Best part of the holiday. Thanks again Helen.

This cottage is a real gem in lovely countryside. It is full of character with lots of facilities. Lovely and clean with sweeping views. Helen provided us with lots of extras such as free range eggs, tea, coffee etc. A real home from home.

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.
