    “Lovely Old Cottage only 100m from Middleham Castle”

    Stayed here for a week end Sept/Early Oct and absolutely loved the Cottage ...

    Stayed here for a week end Sept/Early Oct and absolutely loved the Cottage. It is very well appointed with lots of thoughtful touches like torches at the side of each bed, the fire laid on your arrival and the milk and biscuits left for a welcome pack. Parking for the first time is a bit of a shuffle but after that you get the hang of the right line to take and can easily get it spot on. We had no problem driving out down the road. Cottage was always very warm as there is a large storage heater in the lounge, but we did light the stove every night so had to buy some more kindling from the local store. Cosy lounge with Freeview TV. We found the Wi-Fi a bit erratic, OK for emails on holiday but if you were looking to do any online work while staying it could be a challenge. Beds very comfy, worth taking a few extra coat hangers if you do not travel light! Bathroom and shower very well equipped with lots of hot water. Kitchen very good but take an ice tray if you like ice in your G&T! For us the great attraction was the proximity of the Castle, which is one of our personal favourite places because of its association with King Richard III. There are lots of nice walks locally and of course the famous Leyburn Shawl only 2 miles away. Jervaulx Abbey is only a few miles in the other direction, one of our favourite spots in the Dales with its serene setting. We ate at the King Richard III which is just down the little passageway at the side of the Cottage. Food and atmosphere is very good, we had no bother with late night noise. Local Store is quite well stocked but Leyburn has a large supermarket if more variety is needed. Seeing the racehorses going up the main street on their way to the Gallops is quite exciting! We would heartily recommend this Cottage both for its location and high standards of comfort, all in a very historic setting in the lovely Yorkshire Dales.

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.
