Contemporary holiday cottage located in the centre of the pretty town of Middleham, sitting on the outskirts of the picturesque Yorkshire Dales offering a combination of town and countryside at this retreat.

Discover this contemporary and luxurious two-bedroom holiday cottage set in one of the Yorkshire Dales' prettiest small towns. With its eclectic stylish interiors, beautiful countryside views and central location to Middleham's cafes, pubs and restaurants, this is the perfect retreat for couples who enjoy a spot of town and country living.

Middleham is a picture-postcard little town set around a Georgian market square in the heart of Wensleydale. You'll find this cottage (whose name is Yorkshire for 'The End One' in case you're wondering) at the bottom of a handsome stone terrace tucked behind the market square.

Step inside to discover quirky and contemporary interiors with a subtle nod to the lively style of the ‘50s and ‘60s. Access to the cottage is to the rear where you'll find a spacious and pleasant kitchen/diner. All the usual mod cons are provided including a dishwasher, oven, hob and washing machine/dryer. Serve dinner on the retro glass table with its collection of modern seating. A Bluetooth speaker allows you to provide your own background music. Grab some yummy local produce from one of the shops in Leyburn (2 miles) and sit down to a romantic meal for two.

Make your way through to the lounge, a generous room with a cosy wood burner at its heart. Take your pick from the comfy leather sofa, classic armchairs or striking lime green easy chair to flop down on. High ceilings and panelled walls give this room an elegant and period feel. Entertainment is provided in the form of a TV with DVD player. Wi-Fi is also available. With the fire roaring, it's a delightful room to just settle down in and catch up for the evening.

Both bedrooms in this property are upstairs. The master bedroom is set to the rear of the house and enjoys uninterrupted views of the glorious Wensleydale countryside. Stretch out on the king-size bed and enjoy a spot of morning telly in your PJs. The second bedroom sits at the front and offers another king-size bed. A further TV and DVD player provide extra entertainment in this room. Please note as with many older properties, the staircase in the cottage is quite steep and so the property is not suitable for anyone with mobility restrictions.

Next door, you'll find a lovely bright shower room complete with a large walk-in shower. The perfect place to get ready for a day's sightseeing in the Dales or dinner at one of the local gastropubs.

Outside the cottage is a charming courtyard garden with fabulous views taking advantage of the elevated position. Dine alfresco around the outdoor table while a water feature provides the background sound. A sail canopy overhead during the summer months ensures you are comfortable in the midday sun and mood lighting keeps it nice and cosy when the sun begins to dip. A BBQ is provided for those balmy summer evenings.

There is also off-road parking for 2 cars, something of a rarity in Middleham.

This property welcomes children over 12 years old.

  • 2 king-size bedrooms
  • 1 shower room with WC

  • Outside seating area and garden with BBQ
  • Traditional wood burner

This holiday cottage is set just behind the market square in Middleham, Wensleydale - one of Yorkshire's loveliest towns. Famous for its castle (once home to Richard III) it's also home to a lovely collection of pubs, cafes, restaurants and shops.

Near the cottage is a charming tea room if you fancy a treat at elevenses, and for dinner you can opt for pub grub at one of the local inns. There's a village store and a couple of small shops to mooch around. Just 2.5 miles from the village is the fantastic attraction, The Forbidden Corner.

In the opposite direction you'll find the charming market town of Leyburn (2 miles away), an archetypical slice of Dales market town life. You'll find traditional shops, pubs and cafes all gathered around the handsome town square, which hosts a busy market every Friday. Leyburn is also home to the biggest auction centre outside of London if you fancy picking up a bargain. The nearby historic town of Richmond (12 miles) is similar in many ways and has a lovely setting along the River Swale.

There are lots of other pretty villages and stunning natural sights all within close range of this luxury holiday home. If walking is your thing, the Yorkshire Dales are something of a walker's paradise, and there are plenty of options for cycling too in Tour De France country. When you need to refuel, stop at one of the area's many excellent gastropubs.

This property is personally managed by Rachel.

End'n is a beautifully maintained and well equipped cottage in the lovely village of Middleham. The cottage had a quirky decor, obviously designed with a lot of care and attention.

With a varied landscape of windswept dales, heather-clad moors and dramatic coast, interspersed with picturesque towns and villages, vibrant cities and a rich historical heritage, Yorkshire is rightly considered one of Britain's premier holiday destinations. Known as 'God's Own County', Yorkshire has nearly one-third of England's National Parkland, two Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty and three sections of coastline designated as Heritage Coast.

Offering infinite opportunities for lovers of the great outdoors, the wild expanse of the Yorkshire Dales National Park in North and West Yorkshire is a glorious mix of awe-inspiring scenery, imposing castles, characterful Dales' villages and drystone walls. While to the east, the North York Moors National Park offers atmospheric moorland, fragrant pine forests and charming towns tucked away within steep-sloped valleys. Extending all the way to the Yorkshire Coast, you can even experience a traditional day at the seaside at popular resorts including Whitby, Flamborough and Scarborough. It's a beautiful terrain to explore.

A visit to the historical city of York is a must. Renowned for its medieval architecture, the magnificent York Minster and a myriad of museums, independent shops and exceptional eateries, you will not be disappointed. Then there's the chalk landscape of the Yorkshire Wolds, known to have inspired David Hockney. And with a packed calendar of events and festivals each year, including the Malton Food Festival, the Tour de Yorkshire and the Great Yorkshire Show, there's always something exciting to enjoy.

Our holiday cottages in Yorkshire are handpicked to ensure a luxurious and uniquely memorable experience. From dog-friendly cottages in the country to large family houses by the sea and romantic retreats in the city, we have a holiday in Yorkshire to suit everyone.
