This 18th Century cottage is located within 50 yards of the popular market town of Middleham. The cottage retains its original beams, has some exposed stone work and a welcoming multi fuel stove to keep you warm in colder months.
Middleham is predominantly a Georgian market town with settlements going back to the Romans. Today, it is the premier northern centre for the training of race horses and has almost 500 thoroughbreds in training in the vicinity. Many can be seen on their early morning gallops. Middleham came to prominence for its association with Richard III who lived in the local castle and the town is well known for its connections with the king - The Richard III Hotel and Public Bar are within 50 yards of the cottage and the remains of the castle and the former priory are also close by. Middleham is ideally situated for exploring the northern dales and is well situated for heading off to Durham, Newcastle, Harrogate, Leeds and York.
We are pleased to offer this most characterful cottage dating back to the 18th Century. The cottage retains its original beams and the cosy stove is an ideal place to cuddle in front of on a chilly evening. Stonecroft is quietly situated, away from the main flow of traffic and people, yet the market place is within 50 yards down a narrow ginnel. The cobbled market place offers additional parking in the centre of this popular picturesque market town and is well served by a range of local shops, cafes and pubs offering simple bar snacks to restaurant quality meals.
The accommodation is heated by a back boiler from the multi fuel stove and comprises:
* Cosy lounge with Freesat TV and DVD player.

We couldn't have asked for a better cottage to spend Christmas. The photos are good but do not do this cottage justice, it has such a warm homely feel. The size was perfect for two couples and the cottage is located very conveniently in a tiny picturesque village with 4 pubs, spoilt for choice! The village is also an excellent location for day trips through the Yorkshire Dales. The lack of online reviews had me concerned, but the guestbook located in the cottage has hundreds of lovely reviews, many from returning visitors. Highly recommend if you are looking for a peaceful break in the countryside.
We are pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay and that you would highly recommend this property to other prospective guests.
We hope that we can welcome you back again in the future.

"Lovely and Comfortable Cottage in peaceful location"

The cottage is quaint and well laid out with all the mod-cons (apart from a coffee maker!) The rooms are spacious and the furniture good. The location is perfect for getting into Middleham and to its castle. Some lovely walks around here.
Only draw back - the pub 20 yards away, on the weekends very rowdy into the small hours.

we were at the cottage only 10 minutes when the owner came to see if we had evrything we needed and explained how to work the appliances and the fire.
the cottage was lovely and cosy.spotlessly clean and very welcoming.
the local pubs were friendly with excellent varied priced meals.the black swan and the black bull were our favourites.excellent fish and chips from the takeaway.
didnt like the parking very much as it was barely enough room for the car and was on a steep hill.you need a good hand brake.
Minimum stay and check-in day vary by time of the year.
