Named after the owners grandson Robbie, this adorable cosy cottage adjoins Barney’s Cottage, so can be let together as one unit to sleep 6 guests, or individually to sleep 2. Situated on the owners farm the property has panaramic countryside views.   The popular Wellington Inn  is a short walk across fields with Harrogate, Ilkley, Otley and Pateley Bridge a short drive.


This lovely property benefits from being all on one level. From the parking area there is one step up to the front door and in to a comfortable lifestyle lounge/dining/kitchen with far reaching views, dining table for 2 guests, comfy seating and wall mounted TV.  

Master bedroom with 5ft king bed.  Shower room with toilet, shower, and basin. 

Shared laundry facility.  Sunny courtyard seating for two guests.

The owner is an award winning maker or fantastic jams, chutneys, marmalades, jellys, sauces and cakes - yummy for enjoying during your visit, or buying some to take home for friends and family!

Nidderdale is a fantastic spot for a rural getaway offering an outdoor playground for walkers, cyclists (on or off road), industrial heritage seekers and yet only a short drive from the spa town of Harrogate. The hugely popular National Trust Brimham Rocks is close by, loved by young and old alike and well worth a visit.

Recent guests say "Superbly equipped" "Everything you need at hand" "Cosy and comfortable" and "Friendly owners".

We have thoroughly enjoyed our week at Robbie's Retreat, relaxing in this cosy and comfortable little cottage. We received a warm and friendly welcome from the owners and it was a real treat to be greeted with gorgeous home-made cookies and delicious scones - thank you! This is a super base from which to explore the Nidderdale and Harrogate surrounding area.
