This exquisite one-bedroom holiday cottage is set at the heart of Middleham, offering a mature and sophisticated style throughout this property is a superb choice for a romantic break.

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.

Enjoyed the location, parking was ok, may be a problem in high summer, we like the area for its horses and trainers yards, also a good area for walking and visiting local attractions. The cottage is very well equipped, you want for nothing and the welcome hamper was very much appreciated.

Great holiday in a comfortable ,well appointed cottage. Everything was spotlessly clean and the welcome basket was a lovely touch. Lots of places to visit in the surrounding area and local hostelries provided some lovely evening meals. Being awoken each morning to the gentle clip clop of race horses of to the gallops was a unique alarm!
