About this Bed and Breakfast

A beautifully renovated 18th century stone farmhouse, Church Gate Farm Bed and Breakfast sits in the peaceful hamlet of Thornthwaite in the heart of glorious Nidderdale.  We're perfect for a romantic Yorkshire escape, leisure weekends or business stays.  Enjoy stunning panoramic countryside views and a welcoming ambience with splendid walks available in the gently rolling valley.

Nearby is historic Nidderdale capital, Pateley Bridge as well as numerous natural attractions such as Brimham Rocks and Howstean Gorge, a naturally formed river gorge.  Two lovely country inns are within a five minute drive (approximately a 25 minute walk away) and Harrogate is only 11 miles away.  We're also ideally close to World Heritage Site Fountains Abbey and the Yorkshire Dales, York and the North York Moors are all within easy reach.

Travelling from Skipton on the A59, on arriving at Blubberhouses (note if you pass the Hopper Lane Pub you've travelled too far), turn up Hardisty Hill signed Dacre and Pateley Bridge.

Turn off the A59 at Blubberhouses, carry on up the hill and after about half a mile you'll pass a right turn to Meagill Lane (back to the A59), followed by another right hand turn.  At the brow of the hill look for a right hand turn sign - turn right down a small lane called 'My Love Lane', (note you do not see a very old small stone sign from the direction you are travelling in). 

Carry on down this single track lane and take a left at the bottom, followed by an immediate right onto the B&B's drive.  A signpost for Church Gate Farm is at the end of the drive and the farmhouse is straight on.

Travelling from the Harrogate direction along the A59 - go past the wind turbines on your left and after Kettlesing Head carry on along the A59.  You'll then see the large 'white golf balls' of Menwith Hill on the right.  At the crossroads take a right on to the B6451 signed for Pateley Bridge, driving past the golf balls on your right side.

Carry on passing a staggered crossroads, down hill and past a small lane on the left (Moorcock Lane).  Turn left on to Low Lane - if your reach 'The Wellington' pub you've gone too far.  Carry on for around 1 1/2 miles before you reach Church Gate Farm. 

Pass Myers Garage on the right and Hookstone Memorial Hall - continue up the hill passing a small church on the right, then drop down on the other side and straight away you will see a triangle of grass and a sign for Greenhow Hill.  Take an immediate right into Church Gate Farm and continue straight ahead to the B&B.
