Thank you for the lovely extras of milk,wine, beers and the most tasty cake! They were very much appreciated. The cottage is beautifully decorated, furnished to a high standard, very well equipped and is very snug. and warm. The bed is very comfortable and we both slept very well during our stay. The village of Pateley Bridge was a 5 - 10 minute walk away and has a great selection of shops, and a lovely park. Nigel was extremely helpful and came over to the cottage to help us with the T.V when we could not work out how to work the remotes (we are techno phobes!). We bumped into Denise and Nigel whist visiting the Sportsman Arms, which is well worth a visit, and they were extremely welcoming and friendly. We took our two dogs on the trip with us and they had a great time on all the wonderful walks nearby. Highly recommended for a very relaxing break.
