The attractive Wensleydale town of Middleham is renowned for its history and race horses. Much of the history is bound up with its Norman castle, which dates from 1190 and has a castle keep second in size only to the Tower of London. The horses are a great sight as they make their way to the gallops every morning. The pretty market square is partially cobbled and offers a range of shops, pubs and places to eat. The bustling market town of Leyburn is just a short drive away offering a variety of great shops and pubs, or why not take some time to explore The Forbidden Corner, a unique labyrinth of tunnels, chambers and surprises set amidst 4 acres of grounds, providing a fun day out for all the family? All in all a superb base for exploring Wensleydale and all within easy driving distance of York, the North York Moors and the Yorkshire Dales and Heritage Coast.

Previous visitors' comments about Cartmel Cottage:
Very clean, comfortable and a great bed - had a brilliant nights sleep. We loved the location, log burning stove in sitting room and the spa bath. All in all it was a wonderful break!

Lovely cosy cottage. Especially loved the wood burning fire and location in the middle of the village.
Mr Cooper, Gateshead, January 2013
The wood burning stove, the open plan feel in the downstairs of the cottage, the village location and the horsey wake up call each morning.
Mrs Weldon, Brighouse, November 2012
Perfect location, very clean cottage and the racehorses were the icing on the cake.
