Bewerley Hall Cottage

A rural retreat, a short stroll from town

Tucked away in this picturesque Nidderdale village of Bewerley, the cottage dates back to around 1750. Today it has been skilfully brought up to date while retaining many of its characterful features. Owners Denise and Nigel look forward to welcoming you with a locally made cake, a bottle of wine and some local ales with their compliments and to make you feel at home.

About Bewerley Hall Cottage


Accommodating two in considerable style and comfort, Bewerley Hall Cottage features virtually everything that you could ever want whether you’re staying for a couple of nights or a couple of weeks. And one thing that is for sure is that, however long you stay, there just won’t be enough time to enjoy everything that‘s waiting for you in the area.

The cottage itself is tucked away down a private road in the heart of Bewerley, overlooking Bewerley Park to the rear and a pretty village green, complete with a traditional red telephone box, to the front. Around five minutes’ walk away is the Dales market town of Pateley Bridge which has more than enough places to eat, drink and shop that you may not even need to use the car at all during your stay.

Of course you might want to get out and explore. In which case Harrogate, Ripon and even Leeds are all easy to reach and you’re also free to roam around Nidderdale and beyond to discover for yourself just why it’s an official Area of Outstanding National Beauty.

As for the cottage itself, our gallery of pictures can tell you more about it than words ever can and we’ve also listed its most important and appealing features opposite. It’s also well worth taking a look at some of the entries from our visitors’ book – and we promise that we haven’t just chosen all the best ones to include. . .

There’s something for everyone in the area

For cyclists

Ever since the Grand Départ of the Tour de France was held in Yorkshire in 2014 (going through Pateley Bridge) the county has become the country’s unofficial capital of cycling and 2019’s Road World Championships are cementing this reputation. Nidderdale offers countless routes to enjoy from the leisurely to the challenging and if you need any advice then the team at Nidderdale Cycles, just outside Pateley Bridge, are always ready to help. Having discovered Nidderdale, the Tour de Yorkshire goes through Pateley Bridge most years.

For walkers

There are so many walks to enjoy, a number of which start right at the cottage’s front door, that it’s impossible to choose which ones to recommend. Suffice to say that if you want stunning views of the Dales, peaceful meanders through woods or waterside walks around one of the area’s many reservoirs or gorges you really will be spoilt for choice. So remember to bring your boots.

For foodies

Where to start? Pateley Bridge itself has two locally renowned butchers famous for their pies as well as selling locally reared beef, lamb and pork and, although we may be a way from the sea, there’s even an award-winning fishmonger. But you’re on holiday so you don’t have to cook every day. Pateley’s very own Olley’s is famed for its authentic Italian cuisine, down the road in Wath The Sportsman’s Arms is a traditional gastropub or, if you’re really pushing the boat out there’s The Yorke Arms at Ramsgill, proud holder of a Michelin Star.

For history buffs

A great place to start is Nidderdale Museum in the heart of Pateley which gives a fascinating glimpse of how people have lived and worked in the area over the centuries. A short drive away there are the remains of Fountains Abbey, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and the adjoining Studley Royal Water Garden, a fine example of Georgian landscaping. If family history is what interests you most, Pateley Bridge’s Folk Finders is believed to be the only high street genealogy advice service in the UK.

For thrill seekers

Maybe you’re looking for a real adrenalin buzz while you’re here. If so, head straight for How Stean Gorge where you can put your nerves to the test with the Via Ferrata, abseiling, gorge scrambling, caving and canoeing. Other outdoor thrills await you at Log Heights in the grounds of Ripley Castle - but if you prefer to keep your feet, or wheels, on the ground then tours of the castle grounds are also available by Segway.
