If decadence is your thing, look no further than this four-bedroom property in Middleham. Behind its traditional and quintessential Yorkshire stone facade lie rooms dressed in lavish decor and furnishings, making this a truly unexpected retreat that’s perfect for groups looking for a touch of glamour. If you can tear yourselves out of the slipper bath in the opulent bathroom or away from the crushed velvet sofas that surround the wood burner in the lounge, you will find that this eccentric abode also boasts a convenient and much sought-after location. Spend your days browsing the independent shops and eateries of Middleham, admiring the area’s world-class racehorses or rambling up Penhill before delving deeper into the Yorkshire Dales National Park.

 

Built in 1720 using stone from the original North Gate to Middleham Castle, this historic house has been recently renovated to an exceptional standard. Exuding glamour at every turn, great attention to detail has been paid to every inch of this welcoming property.

 

Step through the front entrance porch and into the fabulous drawing room. With a choice of sumptuous, crushed velvet sofas and a delightful window seat, find your perch before settling in for a cosy evening spent with family or friends. A wood burner sits within an impressive inglenook fireplace, with a stack of logs at its side for keeping warm well into the evening. When you’re not playing board games, catching up on the day’s events or planning tomorrow’s activities, relax and unwind in front of your favourite programme or film on the wall-mounted TV. The kitchen meanwhile is light and fresh, with a modern yet traditional feel. Keen cooks will delight in the large range-style oven and Belfast sink, while fellow guests can keep them company at the charming breakfast table or admire the views across the garden to the Dales beyond. Once prepared, tuck into family feasts at the beautiful French table and chairs in the intimate dining room. Those bringing their four-legged friends will be pleased to find a handy utility area for drying off wet paws and boots. Here you will also find two washing machines, a fridge, and a tumble dryer so you can really make yourselves at home.

 

Upstairs are four elegantly finished bedrooms and three opulent bath/shower rooms. With walls adorned with dramatic artwork and furniture dressed in luxuriant throws, retire to your quarters in style at the end of a long day. The master suite boasts a sumptuous king-size bed, a smart TV and striking vaulted ceiling adorned with A-frame beams. The real show stopper of this room however is its contemporary free-standing bath, which sits atop a platform in one corner. Meanwhile, its en-suite is fitted with a monsoon shower head, the perfect way to start the day. A further king-size bedroom also boasts a smart TV, exposed beams and views up to the cobbled square, together with an en-suite bathroom with a fabulous free-standing bath. The two remaining bedrooms are both generously sized doubles, each with exposed beams, wonderful views and smart TVs for those long lazy mornings in bed. Completing the first floor is a spacious bathroom.

 

The grandeur and elegance of this property is not exclusive to its interior; every inch of the garden has been beautifully and thoughtfully landscaped. With a range of different zones to choose from, there's plenty of outside space for all guests whether you’re looking for a space to dine, read, snooze or simply relax. When the sun is shining, get the hot tub going and fire up the BBQ, gather around the rattan dining furniture for an al fresco family feast. Patio heaters mean you can extend your celebrations well into the evening. Or, if it starts to rain, huddle inside the well-positioned summer house, which also makes an excellent reading spot. Meanwhile, four-legged friends can explore the generous lawn area.
