This stylish, cosy cottage on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales makes an ideal retreat for families or friends looking to immerse themselves in the tranquillity and splendour of the area.
This stunning two-bedroom luxury holiday cottage looks directly out onto historic Middleham Castle. With its pretty village location, elegant interiors and handsome sheltered garden, we think you might just fall in love with this gorgeous period property.
Character, elegance and charm, this cottage has all three in abundance. The subject of a recent refurbishment, this beautiful old building has been completely transformed into a stylish and comfortable holiday home.
Let's start in the spacious sitting room with its peaceful tones and classic furnishings. You'll love the heated flagstone flooring underfoot and the wonderful stone fireplace complete with a wood burner for those cosy evenings in. Sink into the comfortable sofa while you choose a movie from the selection on Netflix. Or perhaps dive into one of the coffee table books while you put your feet up with a nice cup of tea. There's also a lovely dining table here by the window; watch the stable boys walking the racehorses up through the village to the gallops over lunch. Wi-Fi is provided as is all the wood for the wood burner.
Step through to the adorable bespoke kitchen with its powder blue units, marble worktop, Belfast sink and breakfast bar. There are plenty of contemporary comforts too including a dishwasher, washer/dryer and microwave. Set looking out towards the garden and the castle beyond, it's a great backdrop to breakfast or that pre-dinner glass of bubbly.
Working your way upstairs you'll discover a roomy mezzanine-style landing which offers a quiet space to work or read. Just off here the fabulous master bedroom; this graceful and stylish room looks out to the front of the cottage and over the village. Soft greys, whites and lime-washed stripped floorboards combine to create a calm and relaxed ambience. The super king-size bed is dressed in the finest bed linen and features a top of the range HYPNOS mattress. The en-suite is open plan and sits up a step from the main bedroom. In here you'll find an impressive walk-in shower and WC. Complimentary toiletries and super-soft fluffy bathrobes are provided too.
The second bedroom is on the second floor in the eaves. Another very generous room with a super king-size bed which can also be set up as two singles if preferred. This room is en-suite and features a beautiful roll-top bath just perfect for those indulgent evening soaks. The view from up here is superb, you can see right across the village to the castle and the wonderful Wensleydale countryside beyond.
Step out from the elegant interior into the garden, an immaculate sheltered space with a fantastic view of the castle. Something of a suntrap, there is a pretty patio area, chimenea and small lawned garden scented with a lavender border. What better place to enjoy a lazy lunch alfresco in the warmer months.
Please note there is a refundable £150 security deposit for this property payable closer to the start of your holiday.
