Description

Fox Cottage is a delightful detached stone bungalow on the edge of the wonderful dales town of Middleham, renowned equally for its ruined castle in which Richard III lived with his wife Anne Neville as for its plethora of racing stables which pour racehorses out every morning to exercise on the moor.

On the very edge of the Dales National Park, Fox Cottage is the perfect base for exploring North Yorkshire or, if you prefer, just sitting by the fire reading a book or your emails.

Fox Cottage has a double bedroom and a twin bedroom with bedlinen and towels provided. Both have plenty of storage space to allow you to unpack properly and make yourselves at home.

The cottage has a well appointed kitchen with all the necessary gadgets ( see below), shower room with power shower, large lounge with open fire, a conservatory over looking the Dale and leading onto a raised deck area with deck chairs and a small table. French doors from the dining room also lead onto the deck.

Location description from owner

The Yorkshire region

The Yorkshire Dales are an exceptionally beautiful part of the world. Nestling at the end of Wensleydale with the River Ure running by, Middleham is the gateway to the Dale and offers spectacular views of the surrounding countryside.

Wensleydale has been made famous by James Herriot and Wallace and Gromet. Aficionados of Wensleydale cheese can see it being made at the Wensleydale Diary in Hawes. Whilst fans of James Herriot can see where he lived in Askrigg or visit the Herriot museum in Thirsk.

The area has racing at Catterick, Thirsk, Ripon and York so if you enjoy watching the horses on Middleham gallops why not enjoy a day at the races.

Middleham

There walks in every direction and each one offering wonderful views, circular or straight, short or long - most include a wonderful Yorkshire pub on the way offering wonderful food good Yorkshire hospitality and the world famous Yorkshire beers: Black Sheep and Theakstons are both brewed in Masham ( said Massam) just 10 miles down the road.

For family fun there is the very quirky Forbidden Corner, have a look at the website ( search for the forbidden corner) you wont have seen anything like it before! There is also Brymor ice cream just 3 miles away past East Witton where you can see the guernseys which produce the milk and sample the wonderful ice cream.

The area is full of castles: Middleham Castle (English Heritage) is on the door step. Visit it to see where Richard III spent much of his married life with Anne Neville. Richmond Castle dominates the eponymous town and is well worth a visit but if you fancy somewhere a little smaller and better preserved Bolton Castle is one of the best preserved medieval castles in the country and offers a comprehensive range of activities for all the family.

Don't forget that Middleham is the race horse training capital of the north and the town has more race horses living in it than people. Watch them riding through the town to exercise on Middleham moor every day. Good Friday is traditionally a day of rest for the racehorses and all the stables in Middleham are open to the public - but book early, it is a very popular event.

Tenants Auction house is just up the road in Leyburn and holds some magnificent catalogue sales. Why not try their restaurant while you are there, or visit the teapot factory and chocolate factory just around the corner.

The Wensleydale Steam Railway runs from Leyburn throughout the season and is well worth a visit. Soon the line will be extended to Northallerton and joined to the mainline so rail travel In the dales will be back.

Stayed for 3 nights in this lovely cottage. It was spotless and well looked after cottage. Ideal for local pubs and walks along the river. Would highly recommend, can't fault it one bit!

“Middleham cottage”

Reviewed 28 Dec 2016

We booked this cottage last minute for Christmas. It was warm and cosy in absolutely awful weather. We would have liked to look around more at Middleham but will have to come back and try again when the weather is better. Would definitely book this cottage again.
