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.

The cottage, although small, is very well equipped and comfortable. The owner, Mrs Stevenson was very pleasant and helpful with any queries we made. A well filled hamper was much appreciated on our arrival. Parking is not easy in Middleham, but the cottage is less than 50yards from the central parking area and we had no problems.

An idyllic cottage set in a delightful village. Perfect size for 1-2 people, well stocked kitchen and lovely welcome basket including tea, coffee, wine and beer. Great location and plenty to do and see in the local area. Would definitely recommend it.

The cottage is very pleasant, well equipped and has a high standard of hygiene. The 'Welcome' pack is very thoughtful and a nice touch. Whilst the cottage itself is great, it is situated on a very busy road with traffic constant throughout the day and through the night.
