The cottage was exceptionally well furnished and the small kitchen area equipped with an amazing range of utensiles and facilities, even home baking if desired! Views from the lounge window right over the valley up to Leyburn were lovely. Its also right in the centre of the race horse training business so there are lots of occassions to see the animals at work. The local castle was home to the infant Richard III before becoming king, so there is renewed interest in this part of our history now that his remains have been descovered and proven in Leicester. The car parking is in the village square, cobbled village centre, which does get busy at times, and means that on arrival/departure, you can get awefully wet taking/fetching cases etc to the car, given that there are no parking facilities with the property. Nice, but tiny, sit out area for 2 chairs and a table was useful for having a cup of tea and reading whilst looking down the river valley to some glorious countryside. We'll definately go back again.

Had a bit of trouble getting the key to get in but after that was really pleased with the cottage. Shame there is no parking outside and the front door faces the back yard of pub, but the view in the other direction is briliant, horse stables and countryside. Great base for touring the Dales and make a point of getting up early at least one morning to follow the race horses and watch them train on the moors.
Nice little hide away

A small little cottage located in a good spot in Middleham perfect for exploring the dales. Bed was comfy and kitchen was well equipt if a tad on the small side. We used the travel cot for a little one which was great however the highchair provided had no straps on it which was really dangerous! But overall it was a well kept cosy cottage,

The cottage was in an ideal location for gettting out and about in the Dales.
the real fire and fantastic bed made this stay very cosy in a rather wet week!
