If you wanted to find a great choice of lovely little corners with a bench where you can sit and watch the world go by, you'd be equally pleased.
Or if you''re in need of a bit of a pick-me-up, Pateley would definitely do the job, as it's so filled with bright blooms and vibrant floral arrangements.
This little Nidderdale market town has plenty of other charms to recommend it.
It's the start of the Nidderdale Way, a 53 mile circular walking route, close to other attractions such as Coldstones Cut, How Stean Gorge and Studfold with their very popular nature and fairy trails.
Pateley is undoubtedly a great base for anyone who wants to discover more of Nidderdale Area of Outstanding Natural beauty.
This is where you'll find England's Oldest Sweet Shop, full of traditional delights, and one of Pateley's newest businesses, Cocoa Joes, which serves the best Mocha I've ever drunk. And I've carried out some significant research...
Cocoa Joes offers a choice of chocolates (with a tasting bar...), which are ground to make the most incredible, indulgent, delicious drinks imaginable. I digress...
Wander into some of the alleyways and side streets and you'll quickly discover there's more to Pateley Bridge than meets the eye.
You'll find the wonderful little Nidderdale Museum, King Street galleries and craft workshops.
At the bottom of the hill is the River Nidd and the bridge the market town is named after, a fantastic children's playground and the elegant bandstand.
