Nidderdale is designated as an
Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Edge Farm is ideally suited for
walkers, as the
Nidderdale Way runs along the back of the farm. There are many walks
and bridleways in the upper dale and further up the valley are
two reservoirs, Angram and Scar House, overlooked by Great and Little
Whernside. Other neighbouring
dales include Lower Wensleydale, Coverdale, Wharfedale and Uredale.
Lofthouse village is 3 miles down the road and has one pub, The Crown,
which serves excellent food and ale. Local places of interest include
How Stean Gorge, (known locally as Little Switzerland), with its
bridges, caves and gorge walks and a café where lunches and snacks are served.
Stump Cross Caverns and the market town of Pateley Bridge are all worth
a visit. Gouthwaite Reservoir is a sanctuary for rare bird species.
Slightly further away in
Masham visitors can tour the two famous breweries, (Black Sheep and
Theakston), each with a visitor centre. The world heritage site of Fountains Abbey is less than 45 minutes travel away and Otley, Ilkley, the spa town of
Harrogate, Skipton, Ripon and the historical city of York are all within easy driving distance.
