  • "Upstairs was much better than downstairs for space."

    Living room would struggle to accommodate 4 comfortably. The table and chairs were not safe to use. Overall the accommodation was good but could be improved for comfort downstairs.

  • "We thoroughly enjoyed our short time in Pateley Bridge."

    The cottage provided nothing that we didn’t need and everything that we did. Pateley Bridge is a good base for walkers, hikers and cyclists. The scenery once you are out of Pateley Bridge is stunning. Great short stay and good value.

    Great walks nearby and good location for any park runners wanting to do Fountains Abbey. The parking area was always full so we parked in nearby street which was fine.

  • "I read some criticisms of the property before arrival but found them to be overly harsh."

    The property is well maintained, clean and very comfortable. It was a perfect base for us being out and about every day. If we were expecting to stay around the property for our break we probably wouldn't have booked that one due to no outside space or natural light downstairs but that's the nature of the property not a criticism. Hosts were very helpful.

    A couple of little niggles ,main standard reading lamp no bulb, some if ceiling light bulbs needed replacing, could also do with new cooker top, but these were only minor points, but feel we won’t be booking that cottage again lounge very dark , and court yard at front very noisy but overall a warm and comfortable place

    Thank you very much for your feedback. We have now installed a new Hob and had all the light bulb's replaced in the downstairs, it's difficult to reach the lights with a regular household step ladder due to the ceiling height. Many thanks Property Owner

  • "The cottage had very difficult stairs narrow tred with a bend near the top, should have been mentioned in description, if it had we wouldn't have booked it, also lack of natural light on the ground floor the one and only window is under a very wide arch, we had to have lights on even on the sunnies of days, the cottage is ok if you use it for just sleeping."

    Outlook from one and only ground floor window is the other cottages bins, I could have sat and looked at bins at home!!

    We didn't expect to spend our time cooking so didn't get round to using the stove.The unit is certainly in a great location with everything you need close at hand.I was a bit disappointed there was no washing machine seeing as I was there for two weeks.However I found a friendly laundry man just over the bridge so all was ok.All in all a pleasant experience and I would come back again.Bert

  • "I would highly recommend No 5 The Stables."

    The cottage is really homely, beautifully kept with everything you need for a brilliant holiday home. The location is fabulous as you are so close to all the shops, cafes & pubs. We were out walking everyday, with lots of walks starting & finishing in Pateley Bridge. We did Brimham Rocks and Malham Cove and Grassington - definitely must dos. A visit to the walk shop (a few doors away) to buy some walk books was the best thing we did. All in all a fabulous cottage in the best location - everything you need to have an amazing holiday.

  • "Unfortunately although this cottage was in a good location it was disappointed to find the description inaccurate."

    There was no courtyard furniture as stated in the details so nowhere to sit outside. There was hardly any natural light downstairs so needed to have lights on all the time. NO hairdryer or washing machine and the electric hob was really dirty and saucepans rusty. Cobwebs everywhere downstairs. And the hob looked like it was being held in position with blue tack which was also a dirt trap.

    We had ample space and being close to all the small shops in the High street such as the bakery just across the yard was a bonus. Loved it.

  • "The cottage was lovely and the owner is very nice."

    However, we had to buy our own toilet roll, hand soap as the one they left was pretty much empty and bin bags which was quite annoying as I would have expected to have some in there. I got over it quite quickly though! Other than that, everything was amazing! I would definitely stay again.
