We stayed in the lovely Cuckoo Cottage in Pateley Bridge for 4 nights in April.
We hiked near Grassington (we did the Dales Way/Hole Bottom/Moor Lane loop).
We hiked at Malham Cove (Deathly Hallows, Part I, Harry Potter).
We hiked at Gordale Scar (inspiration for Helms Deep, Lord of the Rings).
We did the Buckden Pike walk/Polish memorial and had lunch at Starbotton.
One day, our kids (university aged) stayed back to do work but popped down to the Royal Oak pub for a bite to eat.
The kitchen is very well-equipped and there are beautiful Portmeirion botanical dishes, placemats and coasters for the dining room.
The three bedrooms have lovely, comfortable beds with beautiful duvets, duvet covers, luxurious pillows and fine furniture.
We cooked most nights (visiting Kendall Butchers for bacon, lamb, their famous pork pies, cheese pie, fresh eggs). We popped into the Spar to get things we needed. We also went into the organic grocery a few times.
One night we got take-out from the Indian Restaurant, Bengal Cuisine (they don't take credit cards/we had to pay cash).
There are games, many movies, books and maps in the cottage - everything you need for a comfortable stay. (Even a washing machine!) There is a little studio room where one can sit (accessed through the private courtyard).
Highly recommended! We would definitely return!
We stayed for 4 nights with our 2 labrador's. The cottage was furnished in period style and well kitted out. The beds were very comfortable and the courtyard/games room was great to chill out in.
The location was superb as within 50 yards, were a garage with minimart, bakery, stores, italian restaurant ( lovely meal ) and cosy pub selling good local beers ( Theakstones and Timothy Taylor Landlord ).
Also the local park was on the at the end of the street and there were plenty of lovely walks along the river and Pateley Bridge centre was a 5 min walk.
Would definitely come back. Thinking about it for Sept.
