About Mrs Fiona Long
I grew up at the farm and the cottage was our family home. We have lots of happy memories of time spent at the cottage. I am now a mum of 4 and our family love the outdoors and spending time with cousins and grandparents at the farm.
Why Mrs Fiona Long chose Hartwith cum Winsley
The house is on a working farm near to Brimham Rocks and offers lots to do locally whilst being away from the 'madding crowds'. It is situated on the 'way of the roses' cycle route, not far from the Nidderdale Way. Harrogate is approximately 10 miles away whilst Pateley Bridge is only 4 miles away. Brimham Rocks is within easy walking distance albeit up hill on the way there, its all down hill on the way back!
What makes this Farmhouse unique
The property is a detached house which has been extended and improved over the years. The original part is probably circa 1800 whilst the newer parts are much more recent. It has been refurbished throughout so offers both character and modern convenience. A large snooker table is situated in the dining room and converts to provide a dining table if required.

Wonderful in every way.
Family friendly environment with LOTS for everyone to enjoy.
Thankyou so much Connie - it really was lovely to meet you and your family. We are very glad you thoroughly enjoyed your stay.
Absolutely beautiful place. Wud have given 5 stars except we were without hot water and heating for a few hours on a couple of days and weather was really cold. Otherwise would definitely recommend. Scenery fantastic and the cottage itself was first class. Would certainly return.
Thanks Gillian - heating all sorted now with new controls and look the sun has come out :) We'd love to see you back again and we're always on hand to sort any problems out as you know.
Friendly, welcoming and well appointed - perfect for our family meet up
With our family scattered across the UK we have always struggled to find somewhere to meet up and now we think we have found the perfect place! With many thanks to Fiona and her family for their warm welcome - we hope to see you again :)
ps if you are reading this looking for a balanced review, the only sight downside is that you do need to plan your meals so that they work with the aga...which we successfully negotiated and had some great food.
Thankyou so much Claire I am so glad you had a great get together :)
The aga is a different way of cooking which we do run through with all our guests - we are always on hand for any advice and to provide assistance - the electric hob, slow cooker and george forman grill are also available plus the microwave and toaster :)
Cosy retreat in beautiful surroundings
Spent a long weekend at this lovely house. It was very well equipped and comfortable. Lazy mornings in the kitchen by the aga and cosy evenings in the living room by the open fire. A great location for exploring the area,we visited Brimham Rocks, Ripley and Harrogate. Beautiful area with loads to do and see. Thank-you to Fiona for great communication and making us feel so welcome.
Fantastic weekend at this gorgeous property!
We had a wonderful weekend at the beautiful country house. It is in a perfect quiet location surrounded by glorious countryside and great for country pubs! The house was extremely well equipped and beautifully decorated. There were 10 girls staying with plenty of space for all of us, thank you for your hospitality. Recommend cars to explore area as remote location. Thanks again.
Thankyou Holly we are always glad to hear that our guests have had a great time in our lovely part of the world!
We had a lovely stay in Summerbridge, the property was as described on the website and met all our expectations.
So glad you enjoyed your stay. The cottage does lend itself well to family groups such as yours all coming together, parents, grandparents and teenagers!
Travel: Nearest AIRPORT - Leeds/Bradford: 22 Miles Nearest TRAIN - Harrogate: 10 Miles Car recommended. Distances: Summerbridge - 1 mile on foot, 2 miles by car. Pateley Bridge - 4 miles by car. Brimham Rocks - 1 mile on foot. Further Details: Our quiet location makes it easy to stay put and enjoy the clean air and beautiful landscape but if you are more adventurous there is plenty to see and do; approx 1 mile away on foot is Brimham Rocks a remarkable collection of weathered rocks that have formed magnificent sculptures, Fountains Abbey and Studley Royal are 15 mins drive away: the ruins of a 12th Century Cistercian Abbey (the largest in Europe) alongside a beautiful Georgian Water Garden and peaceful Deer Park. For walkers we have the Nidderdale Way, literally on the door step and many other beautiful places to explore. For historians there is a wealth of ancient buildings; Ripon's Cathedral which dates from 672AD, over 1300 years old! For cyclists - we are situated on the "Way of the Roses" route and Le Tour Yorkshire leaves a cycling legacy with the route being not far from the farm! For families there is an enviable choice. Tree climbing, pond dipping, and river jumping are all to be had within minutes! For more formal activities there are any number of attractions: Light water Valley is a 25 minute drive away and offers roller-coaster thrills and spills; How Stean Gorge is the site of a Highwayman's hideout and now offers abseiling, gorge-walking and kayaking with Studfold Farm at Lofthouse great for families with children. The Forbidden Corner is a wonderful folly and defies description but I heartily recommend it for the strangest day out! Shoppers and Spa seekers can head to Harrogate, just 30 minutes away and Pateley Bridge, 3 miles away has Ye Olde Sweet Shop. Caterers can be arranged as can activities such as clay pigeon shooting, mountain biking and many others, we're happy to help arrange an action packed visit or a cosy quiet relaxing break.
