Escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life and spend some time with loved ones in total peace and tranquillity, but close to all the local amenities that make your holiday special.

This fabulous property is in a quiet location off the beaten track in an enviable village near the River Nidd. Tucked away from the main village, you’ll feel like you’re in the middle of nowhere, yet the centre of Pateley Bridge is less than 200 metres away with pubs, shops and charming tearooms to enjoy, with the Nidderdale Museum only slightly further at around 485 metres away. With plenty of space for up to eight guests and even the four-legged member of the family, this holiday home is the ideal place for a getaway with your loved ones.

Park up on the sweeping gravel driveway and head through the front door of this imposing property. The lounge welcomes you in with warm, earthy tones and a wood burner to snuggle up in front of after a long day out walking. The musical member of the group can serenade you from the grand piano, or simply watch some TV to chill out.

Cook up a storm in the contemporary country-style kitchen, where blue tones paired with neutral colours add lots of rustic charm. Chat with the chef from the breakfast bar with a glass of wine as they prepare dinner on the Rangemaster oven. There’s a utility room off the kitchen area with a washing machine and a tumble dryer, so there’s no need to worry about muddy clothes if you’ve been off on an adventure.

Quirky touches in the dining area make it a pleasure to eat family meals here; the table comfortably seats everyone and is the ideal spot to challenge each other to a boardgame or just chat the night away over drinks and nibbles. Retire to the sofa to let your dinner go down, or sit here during the day for wonderful views of the garden through the double doors.

The garden wraps around the cottage and is a tranquil place to enjoy with lots of different areas to explore. Sizzle up a BBQ and dine alfresco on the decking looking out across the lawn, or enjoy a secluded meal on the gravelled patio surrounded by established wildflowers and plants. Escape the noise of a busy household to the arbour with a drink and take in your beautiful surroundings.

When it’s time for bed, climb the stairs to the peaceful bedrooms. Stylish decor with lofty furnishings and crisp bed linen in the king-size zip-and-link bedroom has a perfect blend of the traditional and contemporary, with an ornamental fireplace adding warmth and character. The super-king-size zip-and-link room harnesses soothing blues and whites to create a tranquil atmosphere, and a spacious en-suite with lovely coastal tones and an enclosed shower means you won’t have to queue for the bathroom in the morning. Two double bedrooms use pretty pastel colours to help drift you off to sleep and wake up refreshed and ready to take on the day. Ease aching muscles in the gorgeous freestanding bath where soft pinks and creams create a spa-like atmosphere. There’s also a separate shower in here so you can freshen up quickly before you head off out for the day.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

The National Trust’s Brimham Rocks is just 4.5 miles away and is a brilliant spot for a group ramble over heather moorland and woodland. And if you’re a group of animal lovers, book a llama trek at Nidderdale Llamas (2.5 miles) where you can pack up your picnic and enjoy the scenery all with a furry companion. Get family thrills at Lightwater Valley (16 miles), or for a more sedate afternoon ride the Embsay and Bolton Abbey Steam Railway (15 miles) through the picturesque Yorkshire Dales. Have a therapeutic hen party activity painting pottery at Pots2Go Ceramic Cafe (15 miles), or pamper yourselves in the facilities at Long Ashes Leisure Club (12.5 miles) before enjoying a hearty meal in the restaurant next door.

A very well equipped, comfortable and cosy cottage. Pre-holiday information very comprehensive. Welcome pack was much appreciated and delicious. Brilliant location with perfect river and woodland walks from the doorstep. Close enough for a 5 minute walk into town, with excellent local services.

An absolutely stunning property in a fabulous location...all amenities just a 5 min walk away. The owners, Debra and Pete, were always quick to respond to emails and text, they even put my Morrisons food delivery away for me before we arrived! The walks and pubs are plentiful and the scenery is just amazing...fully recommend staying here.

Beautiful and practical location for exploring the Yorkshire Dales- cottage was spacious in a perfect setting, huge garden in a wooded valley. Elegant rooms with many period features and well equipped throughout, which added to that sense of comfort. All the family loved it.

With a varied landscape of windswept dales, heather-clad moors and dramatic coast, interspersed with picturesque towns and villages, vibrant cities and a rich historical heritage, Yorkshire is rightly considered one of Britain's premier holiday destinations. Known as 'God's Own County', Yorkshire has nearly one-third of England's National Parkland, two Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty and three sections of coastline designated as Heritage Coast.

Offering infinite opportunities for lovers of the great outdoors, the wild expanse of the Yorkshire Dales National Park in North and West Yorkshire is a glorious mix of awe-inspiring scenery, imposing castles, characterful Dales' villages and drystone walls. While to the east, the North York Moors National Park offers atmospheric moorland, fragrant pine forests and charming towns tucked away within steep-sloped valleys. Extending all the way to the Yorkshire Coast, you can even experience a traditional day at the seaside at popular resorts including Whitby, Flamborough and Scarborough. It's a beautiful terrain to explore.

A visit to the historical city of York is a must. Renowned for its medieval architecture, the magnificent York Minster and a myriad of museums, independent shops and exceptional eateries, you will not be disappointed. Then there's the chalk landscape of the Yorkshire Wolds, known to have inspired David Hockney. And with a packed calendar of events and festivals each year, including the Malton Food Festival, the Tour de Yorkshire and the Great Yorkshire Show, there's always something exciting to enjoy.

Our holiday cottages in Yorkshire are handpicked to ensure a luxurious and uniquely memorable experience. From dog-friendly cottages in the country to large family houses by the sea and romantic retreats in the city, we have a holiday in Yorkshire to suit everyone.
