"Excellent cottage in ideal location"

This is an excellent cottage for a couple - well equipped and very comfortable. Middleham is an excellent base to visit the Yorkshire Dales and boasts 4 pubs that provide food, 2 cafes and a well stocked local shop, all within very easy walking distance. It also has a considerable number of horse racing stables so thoroughbred horses are a frequent sight in the village.

"Jenny Wren and Middleham well worth a visit"

"Beautiful, cosy cottage"

The Jenny Wren cottage was stunning, and wonderfully cosy. There was everything in the cottage that anyone could want - just had to add food. The really nice thing is that it was so close to Middleham Village, with just a short walk from the cottage, and we were so close to the surrounding area and open spaces of the Dales. It has certainly left lasting, wonderful memories, and wouldn't hesitate to re-book the cottage.

"Cosy cottage in beautiful setting"

Jenny Wren was a lovely cottage for our romantic anniversary break, we particularly enjoyed the wood burning stove, candles and king size bed! Alan and Angela made us feel very welcome and the extra touches such as a tea set laid out, complete with muffins, and the chocolates on the bed made it feel really special.
The village was in an ideal setting for exploring the Dales, and we enjoyed a trip to Hawes and Aysgarth Falls. However, there is also plenty to do locally, with walks to the river from Middleham, and Jervaulx Abbey and Brymor ice cream farm just a short drive away. We were spoilt for choice with the four pubs in the square, but ended up in The White Swan, which serves good bistro-style food at reasonable prices if you go for the early-bird deal.
We would thoroughly recommend Jenny Wren as a place for couples to stay at any time of year.

The cottage is immaculate, with a comfortable lounge and well equipped kitchen diner downstairs. Upstairs there is a double bedroom, with a comfortable bed, and bathroom. The wood burning stove makes for a cosy feel. The village location is ideal, with a number of good pubs a few minutes away. Ideal location for walking and sight seeing. The owners pay attention to detail, with some lovely touches.

"Fantastic cottage"

We have just had a brilliant time in a superb kitted out cottage with evreything you require and more really and we was made very welcome by the owners.The village itself 2 mins walk away was ideal and with a corner shop and 4 pubs and we settled on the Richard 111 where the food was very nice and was made to feel like locals by the end of the week. The cottage is situated for easy travel to Hawes (cheese factory),Leyburn,Richmond,Ripon and Middleton Tyas which was the few places we vistied during our stay and we would love to comeback again in the summer months as we missed the castles which had closed down the week before but it didnt spoil a great week and the comfy King size bed to come home too after a days sightseeing and walking was to die for.

"Excellent place to stay in fantastic location"

This is an immaculate, clean, well presented cottage, has a cosy warm lounge with wood burning stove, a very well equipped kitchen diner and bathroom and double bedroom with lovely comfortable king size bed.
The cottage is on a quiet lane close to the historic church and next to one of the racing stables. Middleham is a must for racing fans and it's a short walk to the gallops where you can watch the horses at morning exercise, the sight and sounds of the horses heading through town each morning are a sight to behold.
There are plenty of options to eat out in the town at the pubs and restaurants and there is a general store for any items you may need with generous opening hours.
It's worth exploring the historic town, back streets and alleyways ,there are excellent walks in the area with superb scenery which are all accessible from the front door, no need to use the car, walks info, books, DVD's all available in the cottage.
A real home from home
