Set in a picturesque village in the Nidderdale region, this gorgeous 19th century cottage makes a wonderful rural retreat for couples looking to relax in some of Yorkshire's finest countryside.

This attractive two-bedroom 19th century cottage is nestled between the bustling market town of Pateley Bridge and the picturesque rolling hills of Nidderdale. With both bedrooms enjoying en-suite bathrooms and interiors with a real luxury feel, this is the perfect holiday cottage for couples looking for a 5-star rural retreat.

Tucked away in a sleepy little hamlet, this charming double-fronted stone cottage has been decorated and furnished tastefully. Inside you'll find sophisticated interiors - a superb blend of contemporary-style and rustic character.

Downstairs the heart of the home is the peaceful lounge, complete with a cosy wood burner resting in the chimney and warm throws on the seats. Light up the fire, grab a good book and take your pick from the comfy sofa or handsome easy chairs. We love the calming hues in here and you'll feel instantly relaxed the moment you walk in. There's a TV with DVD, film collection as well as games and books to keep you entertained. Wi-Fi is included too.

At the opposite side of the house from the lounge you'll find the kitchen and dining area. The elegant kitchen boasts handsome spacious units and a sleek worktop. It is fully-equipped with a dishwasher, washing machine and fridge-freezer. The cupboards are well stocked with all the equipment you'll need during your stay, with everything from serving dishes to egg cups and a toast rack. Rustle up something delicious and head over the lovely dining table to enjoy. Set right by the window you can watch the comings and goings of traditional Yorkshire village life over breakfast, lunch and dinner. Both king-size bedrooms at this property are set upstairs and are dressed in the finest cotton bed linen. The second bedroom can also be made up as two singles if preferred. Both bedrooms have en-suite bathrooms too. The first en-suite has a claw-footed rolltop bath for pure relaxation at the end of a day of hard trekking. The second en-suite bathroom contains a shower over the bath. Both bedrooms have their own flat screen televisions, perfect if you just want to chill in your PJs watching morning TV.

Outside the property, settle down on the bench at the front for your morning coffee and watch the world go by. Discover the private courtyard garden to the side of the property which enjoys the sun the whole day making this a pleasant spot to enjoy an afternoon drink or perhaps lunch or a BBQ alfresco in the warmer months. This pretty cottage garden has seating amongst the window boxes and potted plants where in the summer months a plethora of colour soothes the soul.

This holiday home is situated in a lovely location set in a gorgeous little hamlet in the heart of beautiful Nidderdale. Whichever direction you arrive at the cottage, the scenery will take your breath away. Enjoy the drive and soak up the countryside. The setting offers the best of both worlds - the peace and tranquillity of the Yorkshire Dales countryside with the cosmopolitan delights of Harrogate, 14 miles away. There are plenty of gorgeous walks right from the doorstep, and if you don't fancy cooking one night, the local pub is under a mile away - perfect for an evening stroll.

Set in breathtaking Nidderdale, this property is in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty immediately adjacent to the Yorkshire Dales National Park. There are bags of local attractions and stunning natural sights within easy driving distance including the fabulous Brimham Rocks (4 miles) and the Three Peaks of Whernside, Ingleborough and Pen-y-Ghent which draw in climbers and trekkers from all across the world. Many visitors partake in fund raisers – climbing all three mountains is something of a coveted challenge. If you love the outdoors, there is no limit to the number of cycling trails, walking routes, and rock faces to climb or abseil down. Take a walk around the Gouthwaite Reservoir for some spectacular waterside views. And no trip to this corner of Yorkshire would be complete without a day out in Harrogate which is just over 20 miles away. This elegant Victorian Spa town is bursting at the seams with antique shops, cafes, independent boutiques and restaurants.

We cant possible think of anything that needs improving, nor having any recommendations. We thought the cottage was beyond our expectations.

Exquisite, luxurious, just perfect! Couldnt have asked for more. Even though we didnt see the owners, we felt so welcomed. Bread, milk, bacon, eggs and a beautiful Battenberg cake were waiting for us. The cottage was beautiful and walking distance from the local pub. Will definitely be returning.

A very well equipped house, everything you could want was there and the beds, bedding, furniture, towels etc are all really good quality. Apart from the crown pub (which serves good food) there is absolutely nothing else to do in the village which is great if you just want to switch off.

A last minute booking but we were very pleased with our choice. Comfortable sofas and beds and well equipped kitchen. Lofthouse is 10 miles from the nearest shops in Pateley Bridge but the welcome basket sufficed until we could stock up shopping locally. Great for walks from your doorstep with views as good as any in the dales.

A beautifully appointed cottage in a quaint, quiet village with great walks around. Such a treat that each bedroom has its own bathroom. The decor has been well done and it was lovely to have a fire each evening - since although it was late May the evenings were still chilly. I would recommend this cottage to all walkers.

Beautifully presented cottage in a peaceful village with lovely walks literally on the doorstep. We were very touched by the generosity of the owners who left milk, bread, bacon, eggs, cake and biscuits for us, and even provided dog biscuits and poop bags for our dog! The kitchen was extremely well kitted out including cleaning items to keep us safRead moree during our stay. A smart TV kept us entertained in the evening along with DVDs and a selection of board games was available to. Well be back! Hide
