For an away-from-it-all holiday in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, our Nidderdale cottages are truly hard to beat. Expect spectacular landscapes of remote moorland and a patchwork of rich, green meadows. Little wonder photographers, artists and film-makers flock here.
Outdoor adventures from your Nidderdale cottage!
When it comes to outdoor fun, Nidderdale promises a whole host of invigorating activities. Walking, horse riding, mountain biking, rock climbing, pot-holing and water sports - whatever takes your fancy, you'll find it here. Meet a variety of wildlife along the way - and not too many people. Didn't we say you'd get-away-from-it-all? Or do something different and trek with llamas - such great fun and fantastic exercise as you still walk and the llama carries your gear!
Attractions come in various guises - from castles and award-winning breweries to a Michelin-starred restaurant and World Heritage Site. The latter is Fountains Abbey and Studley Royal, close to Ripon and renowned to be the finest Cistercian monastic ruin in Europe, with Georgian water gardens featuring ornate statues and follies. Tour the cellars and sample all kinds of fruity delights at Yorkshire Country Wines. Or check out some amazing natural sights like Brimham Rocks and How Stean Gorge or 'Little Switzerland'.
Capital of Nidderdale is Pateley Bridge, a lovely market town awash with welcoming pubs and tearooms and speciality shops. Visit the Nidderdale Museum, catch a show at the local playhouse, or celebrate all things rural at the Nidderdale Agricultural Show.
And at the end of each day, curl up and relax in your lovely Nidderdale cottage!
