Property code: G0102
The pretty village of Middleham sits nestled between two rivers and is home to the largest castle in the North of England, once the seat of Richard III. The village's picturesque cobbled streets are home to several good pubs, local shops and galleries, while the beautiful expanse of Wensleydale, including the popular Aysgarth Falls (8.5 miles) and Bolton Castle (7.5 miles), are all in the locality. For antiques enthusiasts, Leyburn, just 4 miles from Middleham, is home to the biggest auction centre outside of London.
This bijou stone-built cottage has elegant decor throughout that blends classic style with contemporary comfort. Downstairs the handsome porch leads to an open-plan living space with a window seat perfect for spotting the race-horses trotting up the village en-route to the gallops; a wood-burning stove effect fire keeps everything nice and toasty after a day exploring. The compact but perfectly formed kitchen comes equipped with everything you'll need: there's an electric oven and ceramic hob, fridge, microwave and, for your convenience, also a small freezer under the stairs - well you'll need ice for your G & T. A charming bespoke wooden staircase takes you up to the gorgeous bedroom, complete with an adorable view of the village outside. Next to the bedroom is the bathroom with a generous walk-in shower and WC.
To the front of the cottage is a well-maintained courtyard garden: a heavenly spot for lunch alfresco in the warmer months.
