A warm reception will await you from your hosts, Kath and David Conner, who will be more than happy to help you make the most of your stay in the Yorkshire Dales.
This Grade II Listed stone built cottage offers a truly comfortable country retreat for two people. Whether you wish to enjoy some fantastic walking, mountain-biking, tour the local area or simply soak in the restful and rural surroundings of Shaw Mills.

Situated in Shaw Mills, a quiet hamlet in Nidderdale and a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Holly Beck Stables offers peace and tranquility. On the edge of the Yorkshire Dales yet so close to Harrogate, it is so well placed for getting to many of Yorkshire's must-visit locations. Period character combines with classic modern interiors in this Grade II Listed property with exposed beams, stone flags and solid wooden floors. Dating back to the 1700s and being part of the former farmhouse, the stables, granary and blacksmith’s shop were imaginatively converted into this delightful guest cottage.

Holly Beck Stables is a lovely base from which we travelled all over the beautiful Yorkshire Dales. This charming old 'home' was such a comforting retreat after a day of touring. Tastefully decorated and to a very high spec. Kath and David, you have been the perfect hosts - from the welcome hamper (including the homemade biscuits!!) to doing some clothes drying (very much appreciated!!) and offering some very helpful travel tips!! Our time here at Holly Beck will be a big part of our UK holiday memories. Fond Regards
