Pateley specialises in hidden ancient alleyways and small cobbled courtyards, lovely little corners with a bench where you can sit and watch the world go by.
Anyone in need of a bit of a pick-me-up will enjoy its vibrant floral arrangements and bright blooms.
Pateley is a great base for anyone who wants to discover more of the Nidderdale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
It's also start of the Nidderdale Way, a 53 mile circular walking route, and close to other attractions such as Coldstones Cut, How Stean Gorge, Studfold with their very popular nature and fairy trails, and Scar House Reservoir.
One of Pateley's best known attractions is England's Oldest Sweet Shop, full of traditional delights.
Anyone who has a sweet tooth is in for another treat in one of Pateley's newest businesses, Cocoa Joes. They serve 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 around and you'll discover some other hidden treasures, including the wonderful little Nidderdale Museum, King Street galleries and craft workshops. Make sure you take a look at talented Joseph Hayton - Sculptor's studio.
