Escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life and spend time with loved ones in total peace and tranquillity, within easy reach of local attractions that make your holiday special.
Set in the picturesque town of Pateley Bridge, in the Yorkshire Dales National Park, this spacious family-friendly holiday home comfortably sleeps eight guests across four bedrooms, while three canine companions are also welcome to join you. Discover historic yards and alleys, along with the lush banks of the River Nidd which runs behind this pretty holiday cottage; while the picture-postcard town features in the Guinness Book of Records, as it lays claim to the oldest sweet shop in England – the place to treat yourself after a long hike, or to buy retro gifts for friends. Or, enjoy a leisurely cycle around the town followed by lunch in a local country pub. Walkers and cyclists will love exploring the surrounding Yorkshire Dales National Park, where there are more than 680 square miles of rolling countryside and dales, peppered with storybook villages, heritage sites, and family-friendly attractions.
Take four steps down to the front door of your charming holiday retreat. Step inside the welcoming hallway to find contemporary, country-style interiors in gorgeous Scandinavian tones complementing wood flooring and furniture, along with thoughtful design features, including pendant log lighting in the bright dining conservatory, an open-plan kitchen and dining area with a family-friendly layout. See what is in your welcome pack, and discuss recipes around the kitchen breakfast bar. Mealtimes are a breeze with the well-equipped kitchen featuring an electric oven, gas hob, fridge/freezer, and microwave; serve at the pretty kitchen table surrounded by a panelled banquette with under-seat storage, where a long bench ensures ample seating space for your brood. There’s also a convenient dishwasher in the kitchen, and a utility room housing a washing machine and tumble dryer so you’ll have less holiday packing to do. Curl up with a good book in the stylish armchair in the living area or catch up on favourite TV programmes on the Smart TV with a sound bar, and the warmth of a wood burner in the snug (first basket of logs included). You’ll find a stylish double bedroom, plus a shower room on the ground floor. There are three further bedrooms upstairs: a king-size bedroom with an en-suite shower room (with a zip-and-link bed which can be adapted to a twin); a further king-size (zip-and-link) bedroom; and a double bedroom with river views; plus a family bathroom. Enjoy sweet slumber in this idyllic setting. In the morning, open the double doors in the living area and step outside. You’ll find an enclosed lawned garden where children and dogs can play while grown-ups fire up the BBQ on the decked patio for a family meal alfresco, listening to the sound of the river. Off-road parking is available for four cars, and you’ll find pubs, shops, and restaurants within half a mile of the property.
Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.
