Tiplady is a small farm with great views and a place where everything is just a little quirky. The Highland Hideaway is a traditional shepherd's hut set by a stream in a small wooded valley. The hut is cosy with a wood burning stove and has a small sitting out area . The toilets and showers are adjacent to the hut and there is a handy fridge, in a telephone box, just outside. Located close to the Nidderdale Way, Tiplady Farm is perfect for walkers and cyclists or simply somewhere to escape to

The space
Most of our guests agree that Tiplady is different, most important of course is a warm welcome and friendly owners willing to help out with local knowledge of places to visit and where to eat. On top of that we love unusual stuff such as our sheep's head carved from an old tree stump, vintage signs and and old Shell petrol pump to light your way. Usually there are a few old cars, lorries or motorbikes around the place and if you like rare breeds, we have Highland cattle and Herdwick sheep (both Viking breeds). You are also welcome to meet with our working horses if time permits. To help you enjoy your break, you have a choice of places to prepare food on site, there's a barbecue area by the Victorian waterwheel, a hilltop shelter with stunning views and a fire pit or there are plenty of amazing places to eat locally. We provide basic firewood for the hut and for a small charge a BBQ, camping gas stove or a fuel efficient rocket stove to cook on. In winter months it is advisable to bring wellies and a torch. Being remote, Tiplady is a pretty safe place but if you'd like, we can lock your bikes, canoes or pretty much anything else up in one of our barns.

Where you’ll be

North Yorkshire, United Kingdom

We are in the heart of Nidderdale so plenty of walking and cycling routes. Close by you have Brimham rocks and Fountains Abbey both of which are National trust sites. Within driving distance you have Ripon, Harrogate, York, Skipton and Grassington. Pateley Bridge is only a mile away and has a variety of shops meaning you can pick up all the supplies you need. Why not have a visit to the Oldest Sweet shop whilst you are here.

I have lived in and around the Yorkshire Dales most my life and love walking, cycling, horse riding and running, I also love a good wild swimming spot! I manage the bookings for the shepherds huts and cottage on my parents farm in between working and raising my two sons, Callum and Rory. You will either be welcomed by myself or my parents (Kim and Janet) who will show you around and be on hand should you need anything. All accommodation is located to the back of the farm so unless you specifically need any help we tend to just leave you to it as most guests book for the peace, tranquility and opportunity to escape as well as the fantastic views.
