Northern England region
From heather-clad moors and limestone scars, to market towns and the steady pace of country life - the sublime Dales await you! Where else in Britain is it as satisfying to sit and do nothing as it is to explore the numerous pursuits on offer?
The attractive town of Middleham is in beautiful Wensleydale and has a wealth of history, much of it tied to the Norman castle which dates back to 1190 and has a keep that is only surpassed in size by the Tower of London. Middleham is also well known for its racehorses and it is a marvellous sight to see them as they make their way to the gallops every morning. The ancient market square is cobbled and there are a variety of shops and eateries clustered around it. Leyburn is just two and a half miles away for more shops or why not take the chance to discover The Forbidden Corner - a unique maze of tunnels and chambers. This area makes a fabulous base to explore this stunning region.

The cottage was in a very good location for walking & visiting surrounding areas, this property would not be good for anyone who is elderly due to the amount of stairs, although this was not a problem for our party. The cottage was well equipped although in need of a freshen up as starting to look tired. On the whole though a lovely cottage and enjoyed the stay.
