The cottage was lovely. It was clean and homely. The bedrooms looked to be newly furnished. There were 4 of us and we found it to be quite spacious apart from the dining room where it was a bit of a squeeze to get our knees under the table. The photos give a good idea of what to expect.. There is a lovely little garden you could dine in. There is an access path for the neighbours separating it from the house though so it isn't private but the neighbours were very friendly.
The villages of Bewerley and Pately Bridge were lovely. The villages residents are excellent gardeners and there were flowers in bloom everywhere (August). It was only a couple of minutes walk down the hill to the well stocked garage shop (very reasonably priced) and the bakers (lovely but a bit more expensive).
We took bikes and found some less hilly routes (there were plenty of challenging ones). There were lovely walks including the Nidderdale Way. We found the Prosperous and Providence Lead Mine which was very interesting and there are also industrial remains near Greenhow. Coldstones Quarry can be viewed from the new art work. Very interesting and an excellent view of the surrounding countryside.
We all enjoyed it and would love to return.
