Welcome to Nidderdale
Nidderdale is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, bounded by the Yorkshire Dales National Park, and although not a part of the National Park, it is one of the Yorkshire Dales favourites.
A visit to the valley of the Nidd includes many contrasts, rough open moorland, strange gritstone outcrops and the town of Pateley Bridge with its craft centres, village pubs and tea rooms. September every year sees the Nidderdale Agricultural Show.
Please visit our accommodation pages for available hotels, cottages, bed and breakfast, and caravan sites in Nidderdale and other areas of the Yorkshire Dales.
Nidderdale Museum shows how ordinary people lived, in imaginative and realistic settings. There are sections devoted to Agriculture, Industries, Religion, Transport and Costume. The corridors are lined with photographs of local interest.
How Stean Gorge is a spectacular limestone gorge, lying hidden amid Nidderdale's lush green pastures.
