Discover mid-Wensleydale and enjoy a relaxing holiday in one of our Middleham or Leyburn cottages, situated in welcoming towns just two miles apart.
Think Middleham, think horses - and lots of them! Welcome to the leading racehorse training centre in the north and expect to see elegant, four-legged creatures walking through town and galloping over moors. Book a Middleham cottage at Easter and tour the stables on Open Day.
For 360-degree views across the Dales, climb up to the remains of Middleham Castle, a splendid medieval keep and once home of Richard III. Equally splendid is the outlook from Leyburn Shawl, a stunning limestone escarpment that was the escape route of Mary Queen of Scots as she fled from Bolton Castle - another medieval fortress not-to-miss!
Leyburn has an excellent reputation for trading, from its Friday open-air market, regular farmers' markets and livestock auctions, to international catalogue sales of collectables and fine antiques.
Middleham & Leyburn cottages are great for families!
Forbidden Corner features a mysterious labyrinth of trails, tunnels and other surprises. Tummies will flip on roller coasters at Lightwater Valley. Travel by vintage train along the Wensleydale Railway. Visit the local ice-cream farm. And don't miss the Wensleydale Show at August Bank Holiday.
