    "The owner was very friendly and the cottage was super, very clean. The beds were very comfortable and there was plenty of storage and wardrobe space. The kitchen area was excellent and well equipped for a holiday let.

The property

Pateley Bridge 1 mile.

A delightful, stone-built, Grade II listed, ground floor cottage set in the grounds of a working farm just one mile from Pateley Bridge, in a lovely valley close to the River Nidd.

Offering accommodation on one level, this Pateley Bridge cottage has been lovingly converted from old farm buildings and still retains many of the original features including old beams and exposed stonework, to provide a comfortable holiday home in beautiful Nidderdale.

This Yorkshire cottage offers a spacious, open plan living area with a well-equipped kitchen, dining area and a cosy sitting area with a sofa bed.

Two bedrooms make this an ideal layout for a small family or group of friends to get together and discover this wonderful area.

Pretty shared gardens, lovely walks from the doorstep onto the Nidderdale Way and fishing rights on the nearby river further enhance this Pateley Bridge property.

The amenities of Pateley Bridge are close at hand, including excellent old pubs and local eateries as well as the River Nidd, which winds its course through the village.

Excellent walking can be enjoyed from the doorstep, and the likes of Harrogate, with its fabulous shopping centre, and the market towns of Ripon, Richmond, Leyburn and Hawes are within easy reach.

An excellent Nidderdale cottage base for family and friends to get together and enjoy the beautiful Yorkshire Dales.

About the location


Grassington 12 miles; Harrogate 12 miles; Ripon 12 miles.

A charming Dales town nestling in the steep-sided valley of the River Nidd. Quaint little alleys and yards off the steep main street house many interesting shops offering a wide range of unusual gifts and mementos, plenty of places to eat and drink and two award-winning butchers. The town is well known for its prize-winning floral displays, whilst the leisure centre offers splendid sports facilities and the riverside park with children’s play area is not to be missed. Also worth a visit are the town’s Craft Workshops and the award-winning Nidderdale Museum - a lively collection of displays illustrating all aspects of Dales life in the past. Up and downstream, the Nidd Valley offers excellent opportunities for walking and birdwatching.
