    “Lovely cottage in a great location”

    Had a wonderful week staying in Pony Cube cottage with my wife and two children (aged 2 and 4) in August 2018. The cottage was clean and obviously well looked after with a lovely kitchen and bathroom. The bedrooms were nicely decorated and very comfortable ...

    Had a wonderful week staying in Pony Cube cottage with my wife and two children (aged 2 and 4) in August 2018. The cottage was clean and obviously well looked after with a lovely kitchen and bathroom. The bedrooms were nicely decorated and very comfortable. The house had everything we needed for our stay, broadband worked well, there was a google chromecast available in order to access catch-up TV, a good selection of board games were available and towels were included. The owners left a brilliant pack of information for things to do in the local area as well as all necessary instructions for the cottage. The location was also great, the cottage is located within a stone's throw of the village centre of Middleham, its pubs and its brilliant castle. The working nature of the village, including the daily routine of horse trainers, didn't bother us at all - the kids loved the horses walking by the house en route to the gallops. Overall a great place to stay and we'll definitely be back.

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.
