Charming holiday cottage set in the town of Pateley Bridge, amidst 5 acres of unspoiled land and within the picturesque Yorkshire Dales, it's well positioned for visiting the surrounding towns and villages.

This retreat is a charming holiday cottage which can comfortably accommodate up to four guests. The property is set in Pateley Bridge amidst 5 acres of land. With its elevated position above this pretty Yorkshire Dales town, the views of Nidderdale are simply stunning, and you can even enjoy them from the comfort of your own Swedish sauna.

Escape to a holiday home in the Yorkshire Dales offering a retreat from the hectic pace of modern life. Set in a converted barn on the side of a valley, the owners have taken great care to create a warm and cosy holiday cottage.

All of the accommodation is on one floor, with the exception of one small step at each end of the kitchen (both with handrails) and one small step in the bathroom into the shower. Ideal for those with reduced mobility or small children. Additional mobility aids such as a raised toilet seat, toilet support stand and a removable shower seat are available if required. There is a stylish open-plan living space at the heart of the cottage complete with comfy seating and a dining table by the arched patio doors. With the doors thrown open in the warmer months there is a real connection with the surrounding Yorkshire Dales countryside outside the cottage.

The living space also houses a double bed, giving the cottage a stylish open-plan look; perfect for couples looking for a romantic retreat. And of course, all of the contemporary comforts are here; a TV, Freeview, DVD player and Wi-Fi are all included.

There are a further two single bedrooms accessed via the living space, ideal if you are travelling with small children. Both have that same cosy appeal, with a natural simple style. There is also a family bathroom complete with a stand-in shower - just what you need to invigorate you after a bracing walk across the Dales.

Outside, there is a very pleasant sheltered patio featuring those amazing views of the valley below. There is also a fabulous Swedish sauna available exclusively for guests' use. A delightful way to wake up each morning.

Set on the hillside above Pateley Bridge in Nidderdale, this beautiful holiday cottage offers the peace and tranquillity of the Yorkshire Dales countryside with the delights of Yorkshire village life just a walk away.

With miles of stunning walks and mountain bike trails from the doorstep, this property is a haven for lovers of all things outdoors. Heading behind the cottage takes you higher up into the Nidderdale moorlands with some magnificent cross-country walking. If you prefer a gentler stroll, making your way back along the path towards Pateley Bridge also offers some fantastic panoramic views of Nidderdale and the village below.

Pateley Bridge itself is a charming little market town very typical of this area of Yorkshire. The main street is peppered with cafes, restaurants, local stores, quality butchers and a wine shop, everything you need to stock up for your stay. You'll also find the self-proclaimed 'Oldest Sweet Shop in England' here dating back to the early 1800s.

Pateley Bridge sits at the heart of the breathtaking Nidderdale landscape, itself an AONB and immediately adjacent to the Yorkshire Dales National Park. There are bags of local attractions and stunning natural sights within easy driving distance and with Harrogate less than half an hour away, there's lots of choice for day trips.

Lovely cottage in a beautiful location. In the grounds of the neatly kept farm, so hens cluck around the door. A delightful summerhouse for sitting in. Close enough to walk into the charming Pateley Bridge in ten minutes (although a steep walk back uphill) and lots of lovely walks in the area.

Superb location with gorgeous views across the valley. 20 minutes walk out of Pateley Bridge which has some good pubs/restaurants and shops. Good walks from the cottage. Ceiling beams are quite low so taller people need to be careful! Nice to relax in the sauna after a days walking.

I was not disappointed. Wonderful little cottage in a beautiful location. For me, I especially liked that from the window next to one of the beds, I could see chickens that visit the cottage and the small wildlife as the windows are at eye-level to the ground. The cottage is warm, cosy and very comfortable. Whilst visiting we drove out to Whitby anRead mored York and a few surrounding villages, very quintessentially British. Pure loveliness, with very friendly people. Hide

Beautiful setting. Great place to visit with small children. Owners are very welcoming and helpful. We loved our daily visits to the sheep and chickens!

A lovely cottage set in a quiet location. The two single bedrooms are very small but that didnt matter as we only have young children. Please note there isnt a bath in the bathroom, just a shower. We would definitely stay there again.

We have just returned from a week at Lavender Cottage and would definitely return. The location is great for exploring the Dales and the views from the Cottage are stunning. The hosts were friendly and helpful but not intrusive. The Cottage has everything you need and the summerhouse and sauna are a delightful bonus. Well worth a visit.

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.
