Helme Pasture

Self-catering Lodges and Cottages – Nidderdale, Yorkshire Dales


Helme Pasture

Helme Pasture Lodges and Cottages offer two cosy and comfortable Scandinavian Lodges (that can be combined into one lodge suitable for larger groups) and delightful self-catering cottages.

Nidderdale AONB

The properties are set within 29 acres of private, award-winning natural woodland, which is managed with the help of the Nidderdale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty volunteers. All is in the middle of an array of bird and plant life, rabbits, squirrels and deer.  The woodland has a David Bellamy Gold Conservation award and is ideal for bird-watching, walking and exploring.

Nidderdale Way

Located on a Nidderdale hillside, nestled between the village of Summerbridge and the Natural Trust area of Brimham Rocks, the accommodation has superb views over the surrounding countryside and allows the freedom to relax and unwind or explore the many moorland and woodland tracks. Join the Nidderdale Way about half a mile away for both hill and dale walking or enjoy the many activities on offer locally: cycle hire, llama and pony trekking, gorge walking along the River Nidd or simply take it easy and enjoy the peaceful and beautiful surroundings.

Local Attractions

Visitors enjoy the tranquility of the setting, yet have easy access to the best of Yorkshire life - the Yorkshire Dales' bustling market towns and villages: Pateley Bridge, Knaresborough, Harrogate, Ripon, Masham and York.
