High quality, modern accommodation in the dales

Nidderdale Bunkhouse is a large, spacious grand old shooting lodge with picturesque views of the Dales and Gouthwaite Reservoir. The former shooting lodge is a picturesque traditional stone building which accommodates up to 20 people. It has been sensitively converted by local craftsmen to provide convenient, flexible and comfortable group accommodation in a peaceful and private rural setting.

Ideal for Group Accommodation

Nidderdale Bunkhouse has been open since the Summer of 2016. Matt and Bev, who also own Skirfare Barn, have done a spectacular job of converting this grand old shooting lodge which sleeps up to 20 people in four rooms, two of which are on-suite. There are two further bathrooms and four shower rooms. The open plan kitchen has plenty of equipment. The beautiful dining area has a large family dining table so everyone can eat together. The seating areas have fantastic views over the valley and there’s an open fire for cooler months. There is also a large living room with comfortable seating for all – ideal for games evenings or just relaxing.

The bunkhouse is literally on the Nidderdale Way route so there’s plenty of walking opportunities here. The renowned Yorke Arms, a Michelin star restaurant, is nearby in Ramsgill.

A beautiful bunkhouse in a stunning location. The bunkhouse was spotless along with feeling homely and every single one of the guests was thrilled with the accommodation.
