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.

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

  • 2 bedrooms, each with TV – 1 super king-size, 1 super king-size which can be made up as a twin room on request
  • 2 en-suite bathrooms, 1 with shower over bath
  • Dishwasher, washing machine, fridge/freezer, oven, microwave
  • Wood burner, TV, DVD, MP3 dock

  • Parking available in the village car park

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 loved Bluebell of Lofthouse from the moment we entered the cottage. Cosy, clean, comfy beds, great kitchen. Location great for good walks from cottage door. Pub 100 yards down road. We had a fabulous time staying here

After a very long journey to reach the cottage it was lovely to find a great welcome pack, including treats, a towel and a bowl for our Black Labrador! The whole cottage was very welcoming with the lights left on for arrival. I would however say that the bathrooms need some frosted glass!! It is a little remote, and I would be very careful with theRead more narrow roads around that area! But would have no hesitation in recommending this cottage. Hide

Another excellent week-end away in another Gorgeous Cottage. Have stayed previously at Bay Tree Barn and Bluebell of Lofthouse was of the same high quality - beautifully decorated, comfy beds, peaceful setting, spacious and a much appreciated hamper of local food on arrival. Scenic drives to Pateley Bridge and Ripon and lots of walking around locRead moreal reservoirs. Five minutes away from How Stean Gorge with a range of outdoor adventure activities. Will definitely return as theres so much to do in the area and the cottage is a real home from home. Highly recommended. Hide

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.
