... escape to Pateley Bridge, Nidderdale and the Yorkshire Dales


Our aim is for you to enjoy the Moorhouse, but there are just a few restrictions:

We are a non-smoking establishment.

We regret also that we are unable to accommodate children under the age of 12,

nor can we accept pets in the house, except guide dogs or hearing dogs for the deaf.

Guests with Disabilities

A Country Lodge may be delightful to some, but its very character may pose difficulties for those with mobility problems. However, our guests will find the generous size of the rooms helpful. All the bathrooms have showers, and the Kettlestang bathroom on the ground floor has grab handles to assist on the lavatory or with bathing or showering. The grounds are well lit and there are steps with a hand rail or a ramp from the car park to the entrance. There are two steps from the hallway to the Sitting Room. Also, some internal doorways are not wheelchair width. Room service can be provided if needed, and if you let us know your particular needs, we will do everything we can to assist.
