Property code: 78895

Set in the heart of Pateley Bridge, part of Nidderdale Area of Oustanding Natural Beauty. Ideal base to explore the Yorkshire Dales and a beautiful retreat with a clever mix of classic and modern decor accommodating upto six guests.

This fantastic property is in a central location in a favoured Nidderdale town. Tucked away down a quiet side street yet 100 metres from the high street, you can enjoy the peace and quiet of this attractive town but have the benefit of independent shops, butchers, tearooms and pubs all within 400 metres of the front door. With plenty of space for up to six guests, this cottage is bursting with contemporary character that gives a nod to the home’s former use as a courthouse and offers a warm welcome after a day of exploration.

As soon as you step through the front door, you’re greeted with wonderfully bright and airy interiors with stylish blues and rich wood furnishings. Hang your coat in the hallway that has its original Victorian tiles before stepping through to the former judges’ robing room, now the stunning lounge, where elegant pink and blue tones paired with a huge bay window make this a delightful room to enjoy the morning papers or your favourite book in. Draw the blinds in the evening and light the gas fire in a gorgeous old marble fireplace to create a cosy haven; watch TV snuggled up on the sofas with a glass of your favourite tipple in hand.

Move through to the kitchen/diner, originally part of the courtroom itself, where stylish downlighting and soft, contemporary decor makes it a pleasure to cook in. Beautiful tiled floors and light wood-style worktops give the kitchen a chic feel. Take a couple of steps down into the dining area where a dark wooden table and wooden bench is the perfect dinner spot for six; musical guests can even have a little tinkle on the piano to provide evening entertainment.

When it’s time for bed, climb the stairs and take in the view of the courtroom ceiling beams displayed through glass before choosing your bedroom. Watch your step as there are varying heights on the landing that lead you to the rooms. Both double rooms have tranquil, neutral decor with little splashes of pastel colours and furnishings that give a nod to the building’s former history. The cosy twin bedroom is a perfect little hideaway for children or big kids; just watch your head on the varying ceiling heights! Wooden beams among the vaulted ceilings add tonnes of character.

The stunning bathroom with shower over the bath is ideal for a little indulgence; soak away aches and pains in the bath among contemporary grey tiling blended with more traditional touches like wood panelling and exposed wooden beams. Bright lighting and a trendy mirror mean this is the best place to get ready in if you’re going to one of the wonderful restaurants in town.

Due to the property’s location in the heart of Pateley Bridge, there isn’t an outside space, but you can take strolls along the River Nidd (350 metres) to get a breath of fresh air or visit one of the many attractions in the area to stretch your legs.

We loved every thing about this property. The little nods to its history were great. Our biggest pleasure was seeing our girls faces when they found the Easter eggs that had been left. Very generous and hugely generous. As was the Prosecco, the milk and delicious eggs. A great few nights in a spotless, quirky cottage. Thank you x

Lovely character cottage. We stayed with our two children 15 and 12 for a 5 night break. Great location, near to the centre of Pateley. Shops, cafes, pub, park and walks on the doorstep but also fairly quiet too. No parking outside but some spaces just around the corner. Lots of lovely places/tourist attractions nearby:Bolton Abbey, Fountains AbbeyRead more, Brimham rocks, Grassington and some more a little further away: Hawes, Hardraw force and Asygarth falls. 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.
