  • "We had a great few days at Wedgewood Cottage."

    A pretty cottage ideally situated a few yards from the square in the centre of Middleham but very tranquil and quiet. Very clean accommodation, well planned and well laid out. An ideal option for a short break in the Dales. Could scarcely have been better. Highly recommended.

    Set in a beautiful village. Our welcome pack was much appreciated.

  • "Very cosy, comfortable cottage in a great location."

    We were delighted with our stay there in all respects. The one thing missing was a washing machine but, clearly, there was no obvious place to fit one in such a small space. Overall, I would thoroughly recommend Wedgewood Cottage as a place to stay.

  • "Making up the fireplace is nice, but including firelighters leaves a faint smell of paraffin in the room."

    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

  • "Had a lovely weekend break at Wedgewood Cottage recently."

    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. Middleham is a great location for walking and exploring the beautiful Yorkshire Dales. I would recommend The Tack Room for a meal, not cheap, but well worth it.

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.
