Town: Set amidst the stunning moorland scenery and lush green meadows of Nidderdale, the pretty village of Lofthouse is idyllically situated in a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Home to a charming, old-world pub - 'The Crown' â this quaint little village also boasts a general store and post office. Offering a wider range of amenities is the historic city of Ripon with its ancient crypt that's over a thousand years old, the Yorkshire Law & Order Museums, a bustling weekly market, an International Music Festival and the Ripon Races. If you prefer a more relaxed pace, though, why not explore the wealth of riverside and canal walks, or the famous Fountains Abbey and Studley Royal Garden? Lofthouse is also well placed for trips to the Yorkshire Dales, the North York Moors, Harrogate, Knaresborough and York.

This is a quiet, comfortable and well-equipped cottage in a lovely village. It's a great location for walking up and down Nidderdale, one of the loveliest of the dales. We'd love to return. The local pubs are friendly but you need to drive into Pateley Bridge for shopping.

This cottage is great if you want a quiet bolt hole in the middle of the Yorkshire dales to get away from it all. It is a great base from which to walk or visit many of the local attaractions. The cottage is very comfortable, although it would benefit from a little more storage space for clothes. There is a good friendly pub close by, although you need to be there early if you want a meal without a long wait. Overall very good value for money.

Excellent location in the heart of the Yorkshire quite a distance from local towns the cottage is ideal for anyone wanting a walking holiday, whilst at the same time having a base to attractions such as Brimham Rocks,Fountains Abbey, Ripon Castle and the Black Sheep Brewery.
The cottage itself contains all the necessary's needed for a week's holiday. Just worth a mention that I thought that the stairs to the bedrooms are quite steep and narrow and may not be suitable for people who do cannot climb stairs very well.
