  • “The host was very helpful and always to hand if we needed her.”

    The Owl Barn was spacious, spotless and welcoming. Would highly recommend for a relaxing, well presented home from home in some beautiful countryside.

The property

Pateley Bridge 1 mile.

This Grade II listed, tasteful cottage sits all on the ground floor and forms part of a wonderful stone barn conversion, one mile from the North Yorkshire village of Pateley Bridge.

Offering accommodation on one level, this cottage retains many original features including attractively painted beams running throughout the property.

Enjoy a spacious open-plan living area with a well-equipped kitchen, dining area and a cosy sitting area so put your feet up at the end of another long day.

The room is thoughtfully decorated, dotted with many homely features to make you feel welcome from the moment you arrive until you leave.

Both bedrooms are fabulously decorated, a twin is perfect for the children whilst the master king-size bedroom benefits from a lovely en-suite.

Sit out on the patio to the front of the property, here you can have your morning coffee or an evening tipple.

Walks abound from the doorstep onto the Nidderdale Way and fishing rights on the nearby river further enhance this cottage.

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.

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.

Pateley Bridge, voted Great Britain's Best Village High Street in 2016, is a charming Dales town nestled 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, two award-winning butchers, a fishmongers, a bakery and the oldest sweet shop in England. Pateley Bridge is well known for its prize-winning floral displays, whilst the nearby leisure centre incorporates a swimming pool 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, cycling and birdwatching.
