I have been visiting Pateley Bridge since I was young and can remember everything from walking down to the river to paddle to visiting the oldest sweet shop in England for all our favourite sweets. We spent plenty of time in Pateley Bridge and the rest of the Yorkshire Dales camping.
I wanted to write this guide to help those looking to visit Pateley Bridge to find the most suitable accommodation. I hope you enjoy your visit to Pateley Bridge as much as I enjoyed mine…
