A stay at The Sportsmanís Arms offers so much to do, however you like to spend your time. Harrogate, Skipton and Ripon are all within easy reach while Pateley Bridge has charms of its own to enjoy.

Visit Scar House Reservoir which was built in the 1920ís to satisfy Bradfordís growing thirst for water or visit picturesque villages like Ramsgill, Middlesmoor and Lofthouse. The ruins of Fountains Abbey are just a short drive away, along with the spectacular gardens of Studley Royal. The green-fingered might also be interested in a visit to the RHS garden at Harlow Carr.

Thereís also plenty to do without ever getting in the car. We have fishing rights to a stretch of the River Nidd and there are many walks on the surrounding countryside which offer different, delightful experiences all year round.
