  • “The cottage was beautifully and well equipped.”

    One of those rare finds where it’s like being in your own home, with every gadget, pan, spoon, glass, domestic and entertainment appliance. The beds were comfy and the towels big and fluffy. The location is behind a hotel, as someone else noted, and there are some dustbins and rest areas, but everything was neat and tidy and staff were discreet and very pleasant. I really wouldn’t let this put you off. In fact being tucked away really made you realise that you were staying in a hugely historic, Mediaeval village where everything is incredibly higgledy piggledy. The huge plus of this tucked away location is the peace. Middleham is a busy little place in the day and quiet in the evening, but by staying off the road you were quiet throughout the day and night. It was fascinating to see the huge number of racehorses and their stables; the scenery around is stunning and their are lots of walks from the door. This was a really fabulous cottage with every amenity. One complaint...we had to leave

The property

Offering you a wide selection of walking routes, stunning scenery, and a wide array of amenities, the location of White Swan Cottage is perfect for the adventure seeker or those simply seeking a relaxing getaway.

Nestled on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales National Park, the cottage is positioned in an idyllic setting, with plenty to see and do just a short journey away.

Head on through the well-presented front of the stone-front cottage and arrive at the entrance to your grand holiday home, open up the door and take your bags up the stairs to unpack in the two bedrooms; featuring a king-size and a double, both rooms offer a wonderful spot to get some rest surrounded by the peaceful countryside lands just outside of your windows.

Head back down the stairs and step into the open-plan living space, a contemporary and stylish room offering you everything you could possibly need to enjoy a pleasant self-catered stay.

The kitchen boasts a wide selection of amenities to help you to concoct your favourite cuisines, where you can also enjoy a traditional English fry-up at the breakfast bar to energise you for your day of exploring the wonders of North Yorkshire.

For an evening of romance whilst the little ones are sound asleep, the modest dining room table offers the perfect spot for two to enjoy a bottle of wine and each other’s company, whilst the sitting room ahead is the ideal area for the whole family to gather in front of the woodburning stove and flick on the television for an evening of relaxation.

In the day time, take a stroll into the local village of Middleham where you can enjoy an afternoon tea or two, or fish and chips to indulge in as you walk to the River Ure where you can listen to the soothing sounds of rushing waters, or even spend your afternoons here fishing; offering a diversity of fish, it’s a real gem just a short walk from the cottage.

The village is also home to an exquisite 12th-century castle, once the childhood home of Richard III, it now stands as a stunning piece of English Heritage.

For a day of rambling, the Yorkshire Dales is the perfect place for all levels of ability, with a wide variety of routes that you can explore by foot, bike or even horseback, the scenery is like no other, with its own museums, its Forbidden Corner, and attractions for all ages, it’s the perfect spot to spend a day or two.

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.
