Self-catering Lodges and Cottages – Nidderdale, Yorkshire Dales
Set in rural Nidderdale, Helme Pasture offers 2 Scandinavian lodges and 2 cosy cottages, nestled in natural woodland overlooking the Nidderdale valley.
The lodges are designed to sleep from 1 person to 6 people in great comfort. For larger groups these can be combined via double interconnecting doors as they are both part of the same building and can then sleep 10+ people.
The cottages are part of the main farmhouse and can each sleep 2 people in comfort.
The village of Summerbridge, 1/4 a mile away has many amenities such as general stores, a pub and cafe while other local market towns and villages are close by, as well as the Yorkshire Dales National Park and many well-known places of interest. Larger towns such as Harrogate, Ripon, Skipton and York are all easily accessible and offer additional attractions. If you want to explore by foot, bike or car we are perfectly situated to take advantage of what the area offers.
Time for you to relax
Springs here! We have (hopefully) seen the last of the snow and the daffodils and snowdrops are here! We've been feeding the wild birds over winter and they seem to be everywhere, with several types of Tit, Robins, Nuthatches, Treecreepers, Goldcrests, finches + many others taking advantage of the free food.
Hopefully we will see the weather improve from now on and the warmer weather appear. But whatever the weather does, you will can still be nice and warm within our lodges.
Pizza oven and BBQ area
A dedicated BBQ area and wood fired pizza oven just next to our two lodges. When up to temperature the pizza oven can cook a thin pizza Italian style pizza in around 90 seconds!
In addition and available for all our guests
Helme Pasture has been owned and independently managed by the same family for over 60 years, with the move away from a rundown working farm to holiday accommodation taking place in the 1970’s.
Over this time the wood has grown from scrub with a rich history to mature, semi ancient woodland comprising of mainly Sessile Oak, Holly, Beech, Silver Birch and Ash. With this change, an abundance and variety of wildlife have chosen to make the woodland its home. If you look carefully, signs of ancient settlements can be seen where rocks have been arranged as part of small camps and enclosures.
