Pateley Bridge Cottages
Looking for a small-sized town with ample amenities surrounded by breathtaking countryside? Our Pateley Bridge cottages in Nidderdale can't fail to impress.
Wander along the high street and browse quaint, bow-windowed shops and small workshops selling crafts. Treat yourself to some good old-fashioned candy in England's 'Oldest Sweet Shop', a strong brew in a traditional tearoom or a plate of wholesome grub washed down with real ale in a proper pub.
Also in town is the Nidderdale Museum, housed in an old Victorian workhouse. Perfect for lovers of history and culture, take a tour of authentically dressed rooms including a court room, sitting room, school room and general store, and view interesting displays of local artefacts.
Amazing countryside just steps from a Pateley Bridge cottage!
If you're a walker, a Pateley Bridge cottage makes an excellent base, with all those welcoming facilities in town and bags of glorious countryside all around just made for boots and binoculars. Don't miss the circular walk across the nearby moors taking in Brimham Rocks, a weird and wonderful landscape of craggy delights. Perhaps even more spectacular is How Stean Gorge, affectionately known as 'Yorkshire's Little Switzerland' and within easy driving distance of your Pateley Bridge cottage. Gaze in awe at the remarkable limestone ravine some 80ft deep, crisscrossed by narrow footpaths and bridges. Walk, cycle, climb, wade or abseil - it's a real must if you've a passion for real adventure.
What else? Two award-winning breweries in nearby Masham, bird-watching at local reservoirs and, if your holiday falls in September, the Nidderdale Show.
