  • "We had a lovely stay thank you."

    Cottage was cosy and had everything we needed, Visited some lovely places and managed to tire the crazy cocker spaniel out. The weather was perfect! Thank you.

  • "We have been staying at this cottage for nearly 4 years, and at least 10 times."

    So cosy, and everything you need. Very quiet location hidden away behind the main square. The owner Kate is very helpful and friendly, always leaves tea, coffee, milk, wine and doggy biscuits for your fur babies. Very comfortable and well equipped, enough room for me my husband and the dog. Definitely recommend

    Understandable you have no room for a washing machine but everything else was lovely, and thank you for the welcome pack very much appreciated. Keith & Enid Pooley We are both. Retired so we are. not restricted when we can come. We both love horses so that was a bonus

  • "Lovely cottage, clean and comfortable with everything we needed."

    Great location only 6 minutes away from Forbidden Corner and 25 from Lightwater Valley. A couple of minutes from the castle and lots of lovely walks. My granddaughter had a brilliant time. Big thank you for the lovely gift basket on arrival. Will definitely book again.

  • "A delightful little mews cottage tucked up two little lanes leading off market square."

    Remarkably quiet for such a central location and the courtyard is a suntrap from early morning to mid afternoon. Lovely dog friendly walks from frontdoor and excellent facilities, pubs, cafe, shop and castle only short walk away. As can be anticipated in a mews cottage the stair is steep and narrow also cobbles on access path might not be easy for anyone with mobility issues but otherwise idyllic. I had no issues but owner was very accessible by text.

  • "Cottage was lovely and comfortable and welcoming."

    One suggestion, the welcome pack comprised of a bottle of wine, doggie biscuits and some tea bags (which was a lovely thought), however, perhaps a pint of milk would be a nice touch in the pack. Only reason I say that is, anyone who travels a quite a distance, they could just go into cottage, have a cuppa immediately, without thinking 'I have to go to the shop'. As I say, that is just a suggestion, not a criticism. We would recommend your cottage to friends. Area is beautiful and The Richard 111 pub is a must for meals.

  • "We cannot fault this beautiful cottage."

    Perfectly situated in a beautiful village, the cottage itself was cosy and welcoming and the welcome pack left by Kate was a lovely touch. The beds were so comfy and the cottage had everything we wanted. Thoroughly recommend eating in the Richard III pub - staff and customers so friendly! Our only complaint? Not being able to stay forever! We’ll be back though!

  • "Having has some difficulty finding the cottage, Kate was very helpful in providing directions as the sat nav takes you nowhere near."

    Tucked away down a wonderful secluded area, the cottage is so tranquil. Small but beautifully decorated and qaunt, set in a central location for the walks and amenities Middleham has to offer. Just what we wanted for a relaxing stay ven with our old dog.

  • "Lovely Cottage."

    Now that the house behind is sold hopefully the new owner will cut down the garden which will make it much lighter inside. Lack of electrical sockets in the bedroom so couldn't use the bedside lamp and couldn't use anything in the small bedroom as its behind the bed. Not criticism just constructive advise.

    The fridge door needs adjusting, it doesn't close fully unless a conscious effort is made.

    Many thanks for your comments which are useful to us. We are now using wrapped firelighters at all times, which leave no scent. We have examined the fridge door and rectified the issue immediately. Property Owner

    The milk, wine and dogs treats on arrival was a lovely touch and much appreciated. The cottage was clean, comfortable and well equipped. Baen able to use additional portable radiators and the open fire made it more comfortable during the recent cold spell.

The property

Situated just off the main square, in the bustling market town of Middleham, in Wensleydale on the fringes of the Yorkshire Dales National Park, is Wedgewood Cottage, a charming mews cottage ideal for a couple or small family wanting to discover the Yorkshire Dales and Nidderdale AONB.

Enter the property to discover an attractive living/dining room with a feature cast iron fireplace containing the open fire, a pretty bay window where the dining table rests, so you can enjoy dinner with a lovely view, and a cosy L-shaped sofa, where you can relax with a good book or watching your favourite shows on the TV in the alcove.

Prepare meals in the contemporary, tiled kitchen, complete with electric oven and hob and convenient dishwasher, along with Belfast sink beneath the window, which overlooks the garden.

Upstairs are two bedrooms, a lovely double, neutrally styled in greys and whites, with a charming dressing table, as well as a single room, ideal for a child.

Both bedrooms are served by the all-white, tiled family bathroom, with a shower over bath, so you can choose how to prepare for each day.

Outside there is a small, south-facing, front patio with seating, where you can enjoy breakfast and a cup of coffee in the morning sunshine, while roadside parking is available in the main square, a short walk away.

Middleham's market square, along with a host of amenities, pubs and eateries, are a short walk away from the property, as is its 12th century Norman castle, the childhood home of Richard III, while the market town of Leyburn is just over two miles away on the other side of the River Ure, offering more shops and dining out options.

Explore the Yorkshire Dales National Park, where you will find the Forbidden Corner, a unique labyrinth of tunnels, chambers and surprises set amidst four acres, along with a host of walking routes amidst scenic dales, valleys, high peaks and charming villages.

Explore the nearby Nidderdale AONB nature reserve, and enjoy miles of walking trails amidst rolling countryside and diverse wildlife, admiring attractions such as the National Trust's Brinham Rocks and Medieval Fountains Abbey, situated within 18th century gardens.

The spa town of Harrogate and the city of York are also within driving distance, as is the North York Moors National Park and heritage coastline.

Wedgewood Cottage is a great base from which to discover the highlights of Yorkshire.
