Self-catering Lodges and Cottages – Nidderdale, Yorkshire Dales
Set in rural Nidderdale, Helme Pasture offers two dog and pet friendly self catering Scandinavian lodges and two cosy farmhouse holiday cottages, nestled in natural woodland overlooking the valley of Nidderdale.
These two custom built Scandinavian lodges are designed to sleep from up to 6 people in great comfort. Larger groups of up to 10 adults can easily be accommodated as these two lodges can be opened up via two internal interconnecting doors into a single large lodge.

Time for you to relax
We are now in the middle of winter, but spring and summer will be creeping up on us all. It wont be long until the woodland comes back to life and its inhabitants stop eating all the bird seed we give them and find their own sources. For now though birds are everywhere, including several types of Tit, Robins, Nuthatches, Treecreepers, Goldcrests, finches + many others taking advantage of the free food.
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.
