7 Scarah Bank Cottages Pet-Friendly Cottage description

Holiday home
7 Scarah Bank Cottages is an attractive, mid-terraced, stone-built cottage situated in lovely rolling countryside, in the hamlet of Bedlam, just one mile from Ripley and four miles from Harrogate and can sleep two people. The cottage has a double bedroom, a dressing room, a shower room, a kitchen with dining area and a sitting room with an open fire. Outside there is rear off road parking for one car. There is also a front lawn with a small patio, and an enclosed lawn to the rear with furniture. 7 Scarah Bank Cottages is a lovely place for a relaxing holiday.

Ripley is a small and unspoilt village in Uredale, originally designed and built in the 1830's by Sir William Amcotts Ingilby. The village boasts a lovely castle in the centre (still home to the Ingilby family) where deer graze in the grounds and there are beautiful gardens open to the public which have bridges, waterfalls and a lake. The castle also has a shop and tea-rooms. The centre of Ripley has a large cobbled market place which is overlooked by the Boar's Head - an old coaching inn with an excellent bar, restaurant and bistro. The village also has a store, an ice cream parlour, an art gallery, a butcher's and much more.

From heather-clad moors and limestone scars, to market towns and the steady pace of country life - the sublime Dales await you! Where else in Britain is it as satisfying to sit and do nothing as it is to explore the numerous pursuits on offer?

The property has tasteful decor with good quality furnishings, a comfy bed and very homely. The off road parking was very useful and a lovely enclosed garden was great for our dog.

Excellent! Clean, well equipped and spectacular views. Good, safe off-road parking was a bonus. Very pleasant neighbours. We booked this cottage for the Great Yorkshire Show. Travel each day was relatively easy and the cottage was a great sanctuary to return to each evening.

A lovely cottage in a perfect setting, a perfect base for exploring this beautiful area. Excellent bus service from Ripley to Ripon, Harrogate and Leeds.

Nice spotlessly clean holiday cottage, well located for touring the area. The kitchen is well equipped as is the lounge and bedroom. Excellent parking facilities. Friendly/helpful neighbours. A very good walk for the dog just opposite the cottage around the Ripley Castle Estate.

Just had a pleasant stay at Scarah Bank Cottage. Photographs show property exactly as it is. Photograph is of number 7 NOT number 6 as a previous reviewer had incorrectly stated. Cottage was very well equipped, kitchen even had a slow cooker. Plenty of coal in the coal bunker and full bag of kindling, along with several newspapers, so no problems in having a fire. Very comfortable bed and spotless bedding. Bedroom really was a lovely, light, sunny room. Dressing room could certainly be used as another bedroom which I am very surprised it isnt as property is big enough for 3 people. Shower worked perfectly and bathroom in excellent order. Wall mounted electric heaters heated property to a lovely temperature. Only room that was uncomfortably cold was the kitchen as we couldnt get the radiator to work, but we managed fine. Nice back garden, all secure which was great for our little dog. Yes the cottage is situated on a busy road and traffic noise can be heard.

The shower is broken and doesn't work properly. Only 1 bucket of coal left for us no kindling. TV aerial defective ie, broken wires, spasmodic reception. As we had no coal we had no heating in the kitchen, bathroom or bedroom. The open fire heats the radiators in these rooms. There are only 2 small oil filled electric heaters to keep the whole house warm. We had snow, rain, high winds and the temperature dropped to minus 2 so we were exceptionally cold. We found the fridge smelly and the kitchen bin lid was filthy when we arrived. The bin for the ashes was full to the brim. Couldn`t get an answer from the owner when we rang.

Very comfortable accommodations in Yorkshire in an ideal setting. Near Ripley with its charming hotel and pub as well as very close to Harrogate. Many beautiful castles, abbeys, and stately homes within an hours drive and the countryside is spectacular. The house itself is very well equipped, comfortable, with a nice modern kitchen. Bathroom is fine but the shower needs some work.

Nice cottage, lovely patio at the back, everything you need, but it is on a very busy B road so quite noisy from the front bedroom. Nowhere to walk our little old dog easily, to get in the car & drive somewhere defeats the purpose of the walk especially in the evening. Our info described a shop, pub & river walk 5 mins. WE presumed to walk, (in which direction)? but its 5 mins by car as its 1.5 miles away, we discovered it 4 days into our holiday.
