This cottage is in the heart of the countryside, surrounded by fields. It is fully equipped. Anne is extremely friendly (didn't meet Mike). There are maps of nearby walks, books, magazines, DVDs, CDs all there if you wish to peruse. Not too far to travel to Ripon, Harrogate or Skipton. Would definitely stay again.
The cottage is in a good location - miles from anywhere with a nice view. However, it is not very conveniently arranged, with the kitchen on the ground floor and living room and bedroom upstairs. Bedroom and bathroom are rather cramped. A major drawback is that there is no wifi available although apparently they have it in the adjoining farmhouse. Many interesting places to visit round about.
We visited this cottage with the aim of getting away from the riff raff of every day life. The cottage was very clean and comfortable and had everything we could possibly need throughout, Anne and Martin were very friendly and helpful, always available to answer any questions. The cottage is situated on a quiet road in the scenic countryside, with Pately bridge, shops, pubs etc. a short drive away. We would definitely revisit!
New Close cottage sits in the owner's grounds on a quiet road in the Yorkshire dales. It is close to Pateley Bridge which has shops,restaurants etc. The location is also good for walks with scenic countryside in the immediate vicinity.
The accommodation is clean and comfortable with a good size kitchen on the lower floor with lounge, bedroom and bathroom on the upper, All in all a good way of 'getting away from it all'.
