  • “By far, one of the best holiday cottages we have ever stayed in.”


    Not only is Owl Cottage surrounded by the most beautiful scenery a person could ever wish for, but it has been finished to such perfection. It has everything anyone could ever need for a totally relaxing and rejuvenating stay. It includes all the technical needs (WiFi, satellite TV (lounge and bedroom), Bluetooth speaker in bedroom etc.) to the luxuries of a sumptuous and comfortable bed, with quality linen and towels; and a fully equipped kitchen, with washing machine. The heating is completely at the guests control, and the hot water is on all the time. We wanted for nothing. If you're normally a shower person, you might want to pack some luxury bubble bath for your stay, as the bathroom is exquisite, and you'll be wanting a long soak in the generously comfortable bath, especially after a day of climbing the beautiful Dales. And, if after all that, you really don't feel like cooking, there is a lovely pub just two minutes down the road. The cottage owners, Sandra and Tom, were always around, without being intrusive, if you need anything or want to ask about the local area. And they have thoughtfully included in the cottage a comprehensive guide of local attractions, activities and walks to help you to plan your stay. We loved this cottage so much, and there was such a lot we didn't manage to get done during our stay, we will definitely be back.

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.
