    The views are glorious and it's a perfect base from which to explore Nidderdale and other dales. During a cold and rainy spring it was also deliciously warm and snug. I highly recommend Moira's lovely little hideaway.

  • "This is not about this particular holiday, just a general observation."

    As it is now expected that we complete several tasks on the morning of departure - such as stripping beds and gathering and sorting laundry , emptying dishwasher, bagging and sorting rubbish etc . Might it be possible to vacate a little later, say 10:30 a.m or 11:00 a.m.

  • "We loved this place!"

    The property is probably the best equipped we've stayed in. Super clean and tidy, and beautiful location. Moira is very welcoming and accommodating. Pateley Bridge high street is less than 10 minute walk. With a young family (5 year old) there's plenty of things to go visit and do within a 40 minute drive or less. Lots of lovely local walks, parks and trails. Couldn't recommend this place enough.

  • "Great location with views over Nidderdale."

    Located about half mile from Pateley Bridge, the terrace cottage was well appointed and very comfortable for the two of us. It has its own car parking space close by. The stairs are quite steep but that's not unusual and we managed ok. Pateley Bridge is a good centre for seeing the Yorkshire Dales and places like York, Ripon and Harrogate. And we had good weather which always helps!

    It is a beautiful cottage with everything we needed. The storms raged outside but we remained cosy and content inside. We travelled with our 6 year old daughter and it was just perfect for the 3 of us. There are beautiful views from the front of the house and we look forward to returning in warmer weather to enjoy them even more! Moira made us so welcome and was on hand if we needed assistance with anything. We cannot recommend this cottage highly enough.

  • "Table very sticky."

    Tin opener absolutely useless Cheap plastics toilet seat

    Thank you for the positive comments you left in the visitor book in the cottage. I am glad that you found the cottage a "fantastic place to escape from it all" and that the "welcome hamper was a wonderful surprise" With reference to your online comments. a) The kitchen table, like the rest of the cottage, is VERY thoroughly cleaned before every new guest arrives and that was certainly the case on the day of your arrival. We take the comfort and safety of guests very seriously. I did find some stickiness on the table after you left, but I think that the problem must be the extra cleaning materials we have been using since the onset of Covid-19 which are now reacting with and softening the varnish. A wipe-clean tablecloth and table mats are also provided to put over the table. 2) If you had let me know about the tin opener I would have been happy to sort the problem out for you there and then by lending you one until I could buy a replacement.

    ......the toilet seat was poorly fitted and moved around a lot. A person more weighty may have ended up breaking the holding brackets purely because the seat moved so much. Moira who owns the cottage was extremely welcoming and informative about local hikes. Plenty of hiking information within the cottage. Perhaps add on the listing that only eco-friendly products can be used at the cottage.....we brought the wrong kind of dish washer products but Moira had kindly provided the correct ones.

  • "Very pretty cottage in a lovely rural location with a parking bay which is very important to us, nicely decorated and very comfortable."

    Wonderful views from all windows but especially from the living room and bedroom, lots of walks straight from the front door including a trip down to Pateley Bridge itself so no need to use the car to buy essentials and a must is the butchers, great selection of fresh meats AND tasty pies! Bird wildlife is exceptional, buzzards, curlew, oystercatchers, owls, if you like birds you'll not be disappointed. Only downside is the stairs from the bedroom to living room and ultimately to the kitchen are rather steep and awkward, if you are unsure on your feet you may have a problem, plus the television didn't work properly we could only view catch up so not a great problem at all. Lovely hamper from Moira, delicious Yorkshire cake was included. We would definitely book again.

    Not really suitable for walking if you have any disabilities, especially after dark, as there are no street lights down the country lanes. The water is on timer so hot water is only available between 6am till 10am and 6pm till 10 pm. The House next door is being refurbished so there is some noise during daytime hours. Overall it was a clean and organised dwelling. The countryside is lovely, the cottage has a dedicated car parking bay, which is about 20 metres from the door.

    Thank you for your feedback, we are happy to say that the renovation work that has been happening at the next door property are due to end on Friday 9th of August. Property Owner
