About Andy & Sue Murtagh
Andy, Sue, their 2 children and pet spaniel all live at Yates House in Nidderdale. Though we are not farmers, we love the rural life and are surrounded by beautiful farm land and moor. Yates Cottage sits in our grounds, overlooking pasture, a small lake and the valley beyond. We take great pride in welcoming guests to both our cottage, but as importantly the surrounding area, which really holds something for everyone. When guests come to Yates cottage, we will do what we can to help them have a great holiday.
Andy & Sue Murtagh purchased this Cottage in 2011
Why Andy & Sue Murtagh chose Harrogate
The cottage started life as a stable, being part of the original farm which dates back to the 1750's. Over the years, various owners have developed the stable into a single storey 2 bedroomed home. After we moved to Yates House in 2008, we decided to fully refurbish the cottage as a dedicated holiday let and the work was completed in 2011.
What makes this Cottage unique
As it is within the grounds of our home, we naturally think it is ideally located for those who want to enjoy a rural retreat, but to be only 20 minutes in different directions from Harrogate, Ilkley, Skipton, Pateley Bridge, Grassington, Ripon and the many, many attractions they offer.

GREAT BREAK IN YORKSHIRE
Yates Cottage is in a grand location situated in the Yorkshire Dales far from the maddening crowd. Sue and Andy Murtagh are the complete hosts and looking after their visitors is their top priority.
The cottage is beautiful, tastefully furnished and providing all the kitchen equipment that one could wish for. Thank you so much to Sue and Andy. We will return.
Beautiful cottage in idyllic setting ...close to so many amazing attractions
Fabulous cottage with everything you need and more. Beautiful area of the Dales close to so many wonderful places
First class property in a beautiful location.
Yates cottage is situated in a remote but beautiful location. First impressions were very favourable and it did not disappoint. We spent ten days there and loved every moment of it. the accommodation was spotless and very comfortable. The facilities were excellent and we wanted for nothing.
Andy and Sue (the owners) had provided a super hamper of lovely food, which as much as we tried to resist on calorie counting grounds we failed miserably and ate most of it! They also called in several time just to make sure that we were totally comfortable and were keen to make sure that were enjoying our holiday.
We have stayed in many cottages over the years and the is the best by far for comfort and location.
