The Cud Life Cottages and Camping

Holiday Cottages and Campsite in the beautiful North Yorkshire countryside

The Cud Life Cottages

As our guests have commented, our cottages are in the perfect location to explore Yorkshire.  Both cottages are comfortable and full of character with quality linens and have free wifi. Toys and games are provided free of charge so there is always plenty to do on a rainy day if the weather is not with you.

When bookings are made we send details of local produce and home cooked meals that can be arranged for your arrival or during your stay along with clear directions, key information and detailed information about the cottages.

We provide lots of tourist information in the cottages and are very happy to advise on places to see and things to do during your stay and show you around the farm, introducing you to some of our lovely cows and calves (we breed dairy replacements here so have a lot of calves!).  

We are equally as happy to allow you to enjoy your stay with no interaction if you wish. You don’t have to give us arrival times as we use keyboxes so that you can start your stay relaxed and without rushing to an arranged time.

The cottages are furnished to a high standard and the kitchens are well-equipped (they should be as we have a ‘Cooking Fantastic’ Cookshop on the farm. A first log basket for the fire is provided, with more available if requested. 

We also have a stock of wellies available in various sizes in case you need them.

"The cottage we stayed in was amazing. The owners of the cottage could not of been more helpful and every little detail was catered for.

The cottage itself was furnished to a very high standard and was amazing. I would highly recommend both of their cottages. Fantastic value for money."

The Cud Life Camping

campsite2Our camping and caravan site opened in May 2013 and has proved very popular.  We are now a certified location with the Caravan and Camping Club.

We have space for a maximum of FIVE touring caravans and TEN tents pitches. Situated in a (vaguely) square field around a central fire pit; three sides of the field have electric hook-up

With a  barbeque area and fire pit with rustic log seating around we can offer you a lovely time and opportunity to live the country good life. We provide the firewood every saturday night, weather permitting.

Pitches are £20 per pitch per night, booked in advance, for up to two adults. 

campsite 1 The site is flat with stunning views across the countryside down towards the River Nidd.              

As the reviews from our holiday cottages have shown, we are ideally situated for access to the countryside and towns.  Countryside walks right from the campsite and a bus service from the end of the drive; you can leave your car and still get about with ease.

Directions to The Cud Life

at Spruisty Hall Farm

We are situated on the road between Harrogate and Ripon in North Yorkshire, England, United Kingdom.

cudlife text logo felix fontTake the A61 North from Harrogate to Ripon. When you reach the Skipton Road roundabout crossing the A59, you need to continue straight onto the A61 towards RIPON. Follow this road for about half a mile and you will pass a car sales garage (Motorhouse Cars) on your left. Once you get to the top of the hill you will see a sign that reads RUMBLE STRIPS, indicate right and the lane is exactly where it reads SLOW across the road. There is a white marker (in daylight it is easier to look for the line of trees along the lane). Proceed over the cattle grid and along the drive (do not take the fork to Spruisty House) you will pass a little bungalow and then reach farm buildings.

Campsite reception is in the shop on the left hand side - use the buzzer if the shop is closed.

For the Cottages, follow the road between the big wooden and brick farm building and the main farmhouse.
