Our Cottages

Ready, set, go!

That sounds like the start of a running race, doesn't it?

Running

Running is something that I have enjoyed re-discovering in the past twelve months, including taking part in a couple of running races. That moment before the race begins is so full of anticipation and preparation - making sure that your shoe laces are well tied and footwear secure on your feet; feeling the crowds around you in shared expectation of the race ahead; trying to tune-out any 'race fears' of others around you and keeping the focus on your own race.

So why am I talking about running, when we're thinking about holiday cottages?

Long summer holidays

Remember when summer holidays felt endless as a child?

With freedom to roam and run around outside, and space to play out safely. Time passed more slowly and the memories of joyful summers are remembered clearly.

Leave the car behind

After you have arrived in Bank Newton, why not leave the car behind? 

There are many walks and cycle rides that you can follow from the doorstep of our holiday cottages.

You could follow the Pennine Way national trail north in the direction of Gargrave and Malhamdale, and discover the limestone scenery around Malham Cove and the dry valley beyond. There are bus services back to Gargrave from Malham and the Dales Bus Service website can tell you more about the timings.

A beautiful setting in Bank Newton

What's it like at Newton Grange Cottages in Bank Newton?

Well, we love it! These are the things that make it a really special place and a beautiful setting.

Newton Grange Farm

There are gorgeous, stone built, listed buildings, and they are surrounded by rolling green pastures (the drumlin hills) where our sheep flock graze. The Grade II listed Newton Grange Farmhouse dates from approximately 1780 and is in Georgian in character.

A place to take time out for you

The setting of Newton Grange Holiday Cottages, adjacent to one of the most picturesque sections of the Leeds Liverpool Canal that you'll find, is so often commented upon by our guests as one of the best parts of their stay.

Newton Grange Holiday Cottages

From easy and level walking along the canal towpath, through to taking some precious time out, our cottages are a popular choice for those seeking time to spend doing more of the things they love. Be this walking, reading, painting, drawing, enjoying a leisure picnic with family, practising Tai Chi and movement, or paddling on the waterways - we warmly invite you to stay at Newton Grange Cottages.

This Spring we loved making a video all about Wellbeing stays, which can be watched on our Facebook page. A selection of photographs capturing the essence of it are shared below.

Find your home-from-home with Farm Stay

When you travel, do you look for something very different to home or something very similar?

At the end of the school holidays we found ourselves back in a favourite place we first went to several years ago. Returning this year, we felt so at home in the gloriously green, rolling landscapes on a working farm in the English Countryside and could relax straightaway, being away from our everyday commitments.

Top marks for our Housekeeping Team

Our holiday cottages have been Visit England assessed every year since 2016 (that's Mickleber, Nuttleber, Turnbers, Hulber and Newton) and every year have returned a strong 4 star grading - something that we're really pleased to have achieved.

The assessments are independent and the Assessor considers everything from the quality of the exterior through to cleanliness, management and efficiency, public areas, bedrooms, bathrooms, kitchen and additional facilities.

What are we most proud of?

What's it like in Bank Newton?

Here in Bank Newton we are lucky enough to have an abundance of space, plenty of green fields to play out in and patios to sit on. From the doorstep of the holiday cottages you can enjoy peaceful, canalside walks to see historic canal bridges and swans gliding along the water. In springtime we love seeing the bright yellow daffodils and pretty spring flowers. We look forward to the arrival of newborn lambs as the sheep and lambs move outside of the lambing sheds in to the surrounding pastures. A popular bridleway runs through the farm where horses and riders enjoy hacking out on. We are a working farm, with tractors and sheep dogs. We have fresh air aplenty and room to breathe. You can enjoy a network of footpaths from the doorstep of the cottage, including the Pennine Way national trail. Bank Newton is wonderfully rural and a perfect antidote to busy lives.

Our delightful cottages are in different shapes and sizes and include one, two and three bedroom units. Some of the cottages have ground floor bedrooms and two are entirely on the ground floor.

Here are a selection of photographs taken in March this year that capture our setting, and the holiday cottages we have.

A wonderfully relaxing rural retreat after a day in the outdoors

We love nothing better than a day experiencing the glorious Yorkshire Dales, walking across heather moorlands, admiring limestone pavements and seeing the colourful hay meadows in spring.  There’s something rewarding from experiencing a day in the outdoors, the joy of being outside in the fresh air, connecting with the countryside around us and taking in the beauty of the landscape.
