  • “A most enthusiastic welcoming from mine hosts Hazel and Andrew plus a food welcoming pack.”

    The accommodation was bright, clean, interesting with a garden full of wildlife. Facilities were great and modern with thoughtful little touches. Thank you very much indeed Hazel and Andrew! We will be back.

The property

Set within the grounds of the owner's own home and lovingly restored to provide attractive accommodation for a special getaway, Fieldfare Lodge is an all-ground-floor stone-built annex cottage resting near Middleham.

Tucked away in this beautiful corner of North Yorkshire, nestled between the market town of Leyburn and just beyond the iconic bridge on the entrance to the pretty town of Middleham, Fieldfare Lodge is suited to a couple seeking to explore the Yorkshire Dales National Park.

Boasting an elegant, country style, guests will be welcomed into a charming open-plan living space, with a woodburning stove at its heart to warm you on cool evenings.

Sink into one of the armchairs before the fire, or open out the folding dining table when you want to impress your other half with a romantic meal for two, prepared in the compact yet amply-equipped fitted kitchen.

Open up the door from the kitchen onto the beautiful enclosed garden, a lovely space to relax on a warm day, with a pond and flower beds along with a raised terraced seating area, shared with the owners.

Retire to the elegant double bedroom at the end of the day, with plenty of storage and served by a gleaming shower room.

Wake up to wildlife passing by your window, with a variety of birds popping into the garden, as well as squirrels, resident doves, woodpeckers and pheasants, along with fresh eggs each day from the Fieldfare chickens!

The owners of Fieldfare Lodge want to make your trip as special as it can be, providing lots of extra touches and accommodating any requests for special occasions by direct arrangement; they will help you turn your break into an unforgettable adventure, whether providing maps, walking ideas, a lift to the beginning of your hike, or even a spare pair of socks!

Discover the beauty of the Yorkshire Dales National Park, with picture-perfect villages to stop at along the way, as well as stunning natural landmarks like Aysgarth Falls, Druid's Temple and Great Whernside.

The market town of Middleham is a delightful location to get to know, famous for its racehorse training, you can often see the wondrous sight of horses being ridden through the village up to the gallops for their morning exercise.

Explore the incredible Middleham Castle, a 12th century fortress that was the childhood home of Richard III, pack a picnic and explore the various chambers of these expansive ruins, offering a lovely day out.

Sample the pubs and restaurants in the nearby town of Leyburn too, or head up to Richmond further afield to see the River Swale Waterfalls, Richmond Castle, The Green Howards Museum and lots more.

About the location


Leyburn 2.5 miles; Richmond 12 miles.

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.
