    Thank you for your feedback, I can confirm that the oven is in working order, but had been put onto automatic mode, if you had advised me while you were there, I would have been more than happy to attend and sort this for you. I do take all feedback on board and the property now has a tin opener. Kind Regards - Sykes owner relations

The property

A delightful Grade II listed terraced cottage in the popular market town of Middleham.

Set over three floors, the character of this old building is showcased with original features such as exposed beams and stonework.

This large property is ideal for families or groups of friends looking for a relaxing countryside break in a charming town on the outskirts of the glorious Yorkshire Dales.

On the ground floor, the spacious kitchen diner complete with sofas to lounge on, is at the heart of this impressive cottage and provides a wonderful space to socialise and enjoy food and drink together.

For those of the group who would like to break away, the sitting room is the ideal spot to relax in front of the woodburning stove and put your feet up while watching one of your favourite shows.

On the first floor you will find two inviting bedrooms, one double and one twin.

The floor is complete with a family bathroom.

Hidden away up on the second floor, the large master bedroom awaits, providing peace and quiet from the rest of the cottage.

Outside, the private garden is a perfect spot to relax and enjoy alfresco dining or simply a drink as you take in the fresh country air.

A short stroll from the doorstep brings you to Middleham’s amenities, with local eateries and excellent old pubs nearby.

On the idyllic main street you will often see horses riding past, as there are many stables in and around the town centre.

You will also find a fascinating 12th century castle, where you can pay a small fee to enter and relive the castle’s illustrious history.

A five minute drive will also bring you to the neighbouring town of Leyburn, where you will find a busier high street, full of bakeries, pubs, cafes and also a local supermarket.

Also in Leyburn is The Forbidden Corner, a 4-acre garden with a labyrinth of tunnels, follies and other surprises.

Slightly further afield you will find Hawes, where you can visit the Dales Countryside Museum.

Other attractions in the area include the Wensleydale Creamery, Jervaulx Abbey and Aysgarth Falls. With the Yorkshire Dales waiting to be explored, this charming Middleham cottage is a perfect holiday base for families looking for that well-earned break.

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.
