Great accommodation and an excellent base to explore Nidderdale from

Great location and cottage.

Had a nice week at Humbug Lodge, comfortable, relaxing and well equipped. Enjoyed our evening meals at the Crown Hotel and found plenty of interesting things at the museum the small entrance fee was well worth it. Weather could have been better but it didn't stop us from enjoying ourselves. Will stay again

Enjoyed our stay, nice lodge. Tried both the crown and royal oak for evening meals and both were very good.


Area Information

Pateley Bridge
An array of tea rooms, pubs and independent shops including the must visit Oldest Sweet Shop in England can be found on its steep little high street. You can watch sculptors, glassmakers, metalworkers and other artists at work at the unique Kings Street Workshops and next door is the Nidderdale Museum which captures local social history.  The town sits alongside the beautiful river Nidd which offers gentle strolls along its banks. Pateley Bridge is a great base for those that want to enjoy the many cycling and walking routes which weave across Nidderdale so make sure you come equipped to get out there and really explore.  The surrounding landscape takes some beating, with strange formations at Brimham Rocks, winding walkways at How Stean Gorge and mighty stalagmites and stalactites at Stump Cross Caverns.  Up on the tops is Yorkshire's newest and highest attraction Coldstones Cut, a huge artist's sculpture with magnificent views across Nidderdale.  Families will enjoy the Studfold Farm nature trail or if you want to do something really unusual you can try Llama Trekking with the Nidderdale Llamas.  Of course, good food and drink abound; North Yorkshire's first Michelin starred restaurant, the Yorke Arms, can be found at nearby Ramsgill, there are some great country pubs and plenty of local producers offering smoked products, fruit wines and many other culinary delights.
