Charming cottage within the bustling market town of Middleham offering a fabulous blend of town and countryside living with plenty of the Yorkshire Dales' most popular attractions within easy reach.
This attractive stone-built cottage is tucked away in Middleham, one of Yorkshire's prettiest towns. Bursting with period character inside and out, it's just the place for a relaxing break. Set behind the market square, this cosy abode is the perfect base from which to explore the stunning Wensleydale countryside. Strike out for a walk from the doorstep and be welcomed home by a roaring open fire each evening. A little slice of Yorkshire holiday heaven.
Inside, you'll find a small entrance hall to hang up coats and pull off muddy walking boots. This leads into the spacious and light-filled lounge with wooden floorboards underfoot. Once the fire is roaring, take your pick from three comfy armchairs or a sofa to snuggle up on. For your evening entertainment, there's a Smart TV with DVD and Wi-Fi is also provided if you need to catch up online.
Make your way to the rear of the cottage to discover a generous and bright kitchen/dining room. This stylish and contemporary space is a pleasure to cook and dine in. You'll find elegant shaker-style units well-stocked with all the usual equipment and utensils. Pick up some fresh Yorkshire produce from the excellent local deli in Leyburn and rustle up a hearty cooked breakfast, such a pleasure when there's nowhere you need to be. You'll find all the usual mod-cons including an oven with ceramic hob, dishwasher, fridge, freezer, washing machine and microwave. Coffee lovers will also appreciate the Nespresso coffee machine. The dining table sits by the back door and offers views out to the terrace garden.
There are two delightful bedrooms, both located on the first floor. The peaceful master bedroom sits at the front of the cottage and boasts a super-king-size bed. This bed can also be configured as two full-size singles if preferred. This room comes complete with a handy en-suite shower with a Mira Platinum digital shower. The second bedroom is tucked away to the rear of the property and is set up as a twin, however, it can also offer a super king-size bed if preferred. Exposed original beams overhead lend period warmth to this lovely room. Just mind your head if you have this room set up as a super-king! The family bathroom is also on the first floor. For those of you who love a good hot soak at the end of a busy day, you'll enjoy finding a bath in here.
Outside, there is a pleasant terraced rear courtyard garden with partial views across the Wensleydale countryside. Patio furniture and a gas BBQ are provided so you can take full advantage of the warm summer evenings. There's also a cushioned bench made for those evening sundowners. It's completely enclosed if you have a dog with you and an outside tap allows you to wash them down (or your muddy walking boots). There is normally roadside parking available immediately outside the cottage, and further free parking just 200 yards away in the market square.
