We have tried to create great accommodation in Nidderdale, the tranquil beautiful dale. We have very limited availability for the 2021 season. Nidderdale is great for Autumn colours, and long walks, finished with a cosy fire in one of the pubs, or indeed in The Cowshed.
We look forward to seeing you.
The Cowshed is a 2 bedroom holiday home providing luxury holiday accommodation in a dales village, North Yorkshire, with fully fitted handmade kitchen, and bedrooms with en-suite shower rooms. Heated towel rails, digital showers and full central heating and large living area with a wood burning stove are provided.
The bedrooms have super king or twin beds, or a combination of both. Rental includes bed linen, towels and toiletries. A welcome basket is provided.
Outside is a small south facing garden with wonderful views over the dale. Car parking is available. Electric car charging from 13A socket by request.
Up to 2 well behaved dogs are welcome subject to prior arrangement.
The Cowshed is part of Holme Farm, the farmhouse and cowshed both being built in 1653, the oldest buildings in the village of Lofthouse. Holme Farm was built with a loft area for wool drying, hence the village being named Lofthouse. Holme Farm was originally a Friary occupied by lay monks working the lucrative wool industry in the Yorkshire Dales, and owned by Fountains Abbey.
The Cowshed is situated in the picturesque and quiet village of Lofthouse, at the top of beautiful Nidderdale. The local pub is a short walking distance from the accommodation and provides wholesome food and a warm friendly atmosphere.
Beyond Lofthouse there are the villages of Ramsgill, Middlesmoor with a good pub, and Wath with a smart hotel restaurant.
The market towns of Pateley Bridge, and Masham are nearby.
Harrogate with its chic shopping, cafes and restaurants, and the city of Ripon are less than an hours drive away.
The area around Lofthouse has numerous scenic footpaths, the Nidderdale Way and 2 other long distance paths passing close by. This is serious walking and cycling country.
The National Trust attractions of Fountains Abbey and Brimham Rocks are worth a visit.
Further afield the Yorkshire Dales offer a wealth of interesting places to visit.

"We have had the best time staying in The Cowshed. It has been peaceful and quiet and we were able to wake up to the beautiful scenery. We were also very lucky as me and Poppy (little sister) got a separate bathroom to ourselves. It has been an amazing family holiday. Thank you.
