Nidderdale Way Cafe

The Nidderdale Way Café, at Studfold, is open from 13th April 2019 at weekends and school holidays for the 2019 season (13th April until 1st September 2019).  It is situated on The Nidderdale Way adjoining the Studfold reception and is an ideal stop-off for those walking or cycling this well-known bridleway. It will also complete the experience for those either staying with us on the Caravan, Glamping and Camping Park or visiting the popular Studfold Adventure Trail visitor attraction. As well as indoor seating it also has several outdoor picnic benches where food and drink purchased in the Café can be enjoyed. You can even preorder a lovely picnic in one of the Cafe's wicker baskets. This can be taken for you to the picnic area on the Studfold Adventure Trail... very 'Famous Five'!


The Café's opening hours are 9am (8.30am Fri, Sat, Sun) until 5pm with last orders being taken at 4.30pm. The menu includes hot and cold drinks, delicious homemade sandwiches snacks and cakes, with ingredients being sourced locally. You will be guaranteed a fantastic Yorkshire welcome! If you wish to pre-order a breakfast or picnic items these can be delivered to the camping/glamping field for 9.00am or collect from the Nidderdale Way Cafe near to Studfold reception, at a time of your choice. Pre-ordering forms can be picked up from the cafe or order via email to Julia on nidderdalewaycafe@gmail.com. Keep up to date on the Nidderdale Way Cafe facebook page.

Parking for the Café is at the Studfold Car Park, which is located just off the Pateley Bridge to Middlesmoor road. The Café is disabled friendly and there is disabled parking immediately outside the café entrance. 

Outside area

The Walker family, who own Studfold, have been custodians of Blayshaw farmland for 16 generations! Formerly a Byland Grange (1636) rearing sheep for Byland Abbey. Studfold, which includes Blayshaw, is a dales hill farm occupying 170 acres of some of the most picturesque land in the Yorkshire Dales. 

After many years this rural family business continues to develop; from a farm with a solitary fisherman’s caravan and the first farmhouse teas being served in Upper Nidderdale, into an award winning destination where families can enjoy an affordable holiday or a memorable day out.
