About Sawmill Cottage

Abbey Holiday Cottages offer three delightful holiday cottages that are located in the pretty village of Middlesmoor near the small market town of Pateley Bridge on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales. Accommodating parties of five or six individually and larger family groups of seventeen if all cottages are rented together, this is an ideal rural retreat for a relaxing holiday.

Affording beautiful far stretching views, Middlesmoor is in a picturesque position at the mouth of upper Nidderdale. It offers unrivalled peace and tranquillity in this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and is perfectly placed for exploring the stunning scenic Nidderdale Valley and beyond, by foot, car or bike. The village also has a pub in walking distance of the cottages, serving very good food and ale.

This is marvellous bird watching and walking country with lovely walks along the Nidderdale Way starting from the cottage front door. Scar House Reservoir sits at the top of the dale with level walking and the deep park at Studley and Fountains Abbey (both managed by National Trust) are nearby, as is Brimham Rocks (NT managed) with its fascinating rock formations.

Other attractions locally within fifteen miles include: Stump Cross Caverns; Howstean Gorge (an amazing limestone gorge where you can enjoy a host of outdoor activities including gorge walking, climbing and even a via Ferrata!); Nidderdale Museum at Pateley Bridge; Lightwater Valley Theme Park; Black Sheep Brewery which has a visitor centre and offers tours; Theakston Brewery and Visitor Centre and Nidderdale Angling Club to name just a few.

A little further afield and within twenty five miles you have: the riverside cathedral city of Ripon; the Prison and Police Museum and Victorian Workhouse Museum; Ripley Castle; Knaresborough Castle; Bolton Abbey and Mother Shiptons Cave at Knaresborough.
