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.
Newton Grange Cottages are Visit England accredited Four Star accommodation, walker and cyclist accredited accommodation - and a superb base to explore all that the Yorkshire Dales National Park and Forest of Bowland Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty have to offer. Not to mention, simply pottering from the doorstep to enjoy the surroundings of Bank Newton.
The cottages are surrounded by patio areas and you can walk and play in our field in front of the cottages, and join the canal towpath by walking through the wrought iron gate on the right of the picture, through the field and up to the top left corner, through the wooden gate to the canal towpath.
