"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

"Comfy,cosy,perfect for chilling out"

This was our sixth stay in Middleham and fourth stay at Jenny Wren. The village provides a break from hustle and bustle of city life but has all the amenities you need. The sight and sound of the horses heading to the gallops in the morning is always a delight . Provides an excellent base for plenty of walks and also for visiting other villages, towns and attractions. The cottage is small,simple and very, very comfortable. Alan and Angela have equipped the cottage very well with everything you need for a great break, including lots of local information for walks, things to do, places to visit and a good selection of DVD's, books and some board games (just in case the weather misbehaves).
Plenty of pubs and restaurants in village or local vicinity for eating out.
Highly recommended, just dont nick the week we want!!

"A great cottage retreat in a lovely part Of Yorkshire"

We have stayed in a few cottages over the years , and this has to be the best one so far, full of all your home comforts and very clean with a very well equipped kitchen. situated in a quiet lane and if you like race horsers , next door to one of the many Stables in the village.
Lots of walks on the door step so the car is not needed and plenty of good eating places to eat in the surrounding village and area.
A great cottage for a holiday.

"Lovely cosy dales cottage"

"Perfect, small, well equipped, up to date but still characterful cottage."

The cottage is sympathetically modernised, with nice features like a wood burning stove, new period-style sash windows, a very comfy bed and a well equipped kitchen. It was really useful to have Wi-fi. The courtyard gets the late afternoon sun, so good for drinks and supper, in the summer.
I think the cottage would be cosy in winter too, as there are instant-heat radiators in every room.
Middleham is a really lovely town, with 4 pubs, a village shop, tea rooms and, of course, the wonderful castle.
There are many racehorse training stables in and around the town, and we loved seeing the horses going to and fro to the Gallops on the moor, every morning.
Places to visit nearby - Coverham Abbey, Leyburn, Hawes, Aysgarth Falls, Jerveaulx Abbey and ice cream parlour at the farm, Castle Bolton, Masham, Constable Burton. If you like horse riding - Masham Riding and Trekking Centre, and Kilnsey Riding Centre. And amazing walks everywhere.
We will definately visit again.

"Cosy, comfy, lovely cottage in a cracking location!"

Found this cottage rental on having not visited the area previously, brilliant central location, near to the local hostelries and most importantly to all the racing yards in the village, we stayed for Good Friday stables open day which was brilliant and some winter weather was even thrown in! Trainers and stable staff all very friendly, even outside of the open day and early morning trips to the gallops will ensure you see strings of horse working out. Landlord (Alan) was very accommodating and assisted with our arrival time due to a break down, lovely family, kept clean and as it would be as your own. Nice wood burner and all equipment you could need. Plenty of places to drink and eat and we did not find being without a car too much of a hindrance as there are plenty of local walks...we would recommend the walk to the Coverbridge Inn, fantastic pub food and beer. Would stay again.
