Best equipped kitchen ever in a holiday cottage. Wonderful towels and bedding.
The cottage had everything that we needed and more.
For a small town the food shops were great and open late.
Very tasty fish and chips in the local shop.
A beautiful part of the country for some lovely walks.
We just got back from a fantastic two week stay at Cuckoo Cottage, and it really exceeded expectations for a vacation rental. We were four adults and a toddler, and the cottage was big enough that we didn't feel like we were always on top of each other. The cottage, while charming and rustic, was very modern and updated inside, especially the kitchen and bathroom. The games room out back was a great surprise, and the guys had a lot of fun playing darts every night.
The kitchen was fantastic, and was the best equipped kitchen I'd ever seen in a vacation rental. Tons of mugs and dishes, and really good quality cookware. We were able to cook a lot of good meals, which was key as we were there for two whole weeks, and Pateley Bridge, while lovely, has limited takeaway options. There were a couple of excellent local butchers and green grocers just down the street, as well as a small grocery at the gas station that was open till late every night, making life very easy.
But overall, the best part of the cottage were the beds! Incredibly comfortable, with incredibly high quality linens. It was absolutely wonderful to go to bed each night, especially after spending every day hiking.
Wifi worked really well, and we were able to stream Netflix with no problems at all. Underfloor heating was a great treat, as we were able to enjoy the look of the stone floors, without the chill. Parking was on the street outside the cottage, and we never had a problem with anyone else parking in the spot. Neighbors were all friendly, and if you've got kids, there's a great park a block away!
We can't recommend this cottage enough. It was a great location in the Dales, with great walks doable without having to get in the car, and really just peaceful and relaxing. We'd definitely stay again upon return to Pateley Bridge.
We have just arrived home from a 3 night break for our party of 6 + a border terrier. The cottage was beautiful and a real home from home with everything you need for a self catering holiday. The bedrooms are tastefully furnished & decorated, as is the rest of the cottage and the underfloor heating was a very welcome addition, as it was snowing for most of the weekend! Great walks from the doorstep and some super places to eat or have afternoon tea, all within walking distance in minutes. Will definitely be back!
