Nature Watching

Local beauties

Take a walk around the accommodation and you may catch a glimpse of some of the species pictured on this page. Kingfishers, otters, raptors, and even the odd deer have all been spotted on the farmland surrounding the cottage. With upcoming nature watching and protection programme The Wild Watch launching in May 2017 in Nidderdale, there are sure to be a host of activities to get involved in.
