This beautifully finished cottage offering a peaceful getaway which is situated in the Village of Middleham - the perfect base to enjoy what the Yorkshire Dales has to offer.

This pretty cottage is in a peaceful location in a favoured village on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales. Located on the main high street, you’re within 200 metres of old traditional pubs, local eateries and tearooms, yet can still enjoy the tranquillity of a countryside spot with lots of walks and trails available from the doorstep. With plenty of space for up to five guests, this property has lots of country-style charm and is the ideal getaway if you like horses, since you’ll often see racehorses going back to their stables.

Head up the front steps to the door and make your way into the inviting lounge, where calming neutral decor blended with rich browns make it the perfect spot for relaxing in after a long day out walking. Snuggle up in front of the wood burner set in a gorgeous stone fireplace and watch a good film on the Smart TV, delve into your favourite novel or listen to some peaceful music through the Bose speaker. Exposed beams and rustic furniture create a country-style atmosphere without sacrificing your creature comforts.

Culinary guests will be delighted with the kitchen where quaint tiles, wood-style worktops and light coloured cupboards give it a trendy farmhouse feel; there’s everything you need to cook up a storm as well as a coffee machine for your morning coffee so you can start the day properly. Enjoy sociable meals at the wooden dining table among antique-style furnishings; gaze out of the large window and watch the racehorses in the mornings as you eat your breakfast.

Upstairs, three beautiful bedrooms await you; all of the rooms have fresh, soothing tones with a minimalist style to promote a great night’s sleep. A charming ornamental fireplace in the king-size room reminds you of the property’s age while the large window ensures that there’s plenty of natural light for sitting at the dressing table in the morning as you get ready. The double room features ornate lighting with another lovely window looking outside, while the pretty single room has quaint artwork on the walls and plenty of storage for your clothes. Take an invigorating shower in the stylish bathroom in the morning to set you up for the day, or take an indulgent soak in the bath among calming tones to banish any aches and pains from long walks to Penhill Beacon (6 miles).

The country-cottage charm continues outside, where a small courtyard is the perfect spot for your morning coffee or al fresco meals; sizzle up the BBQ on those warm summer evenings or maybe nibble on something from the welcome pack. Pretty flowerbeds decorate the garden, while high walls and fences ensure you have complete privacy so you can enjoy your holiday in peace in your own little haven. You’ll find an outdoor utility room housing an ironing board, iron, vacuum cleaner and outdoor cushions along with the BBQ, so you’ve got everything you need for a comfortable stay. There’s also a log store out here, where the first basket of logs for the wood burner are included.

Had a lovely, cosy stay at White Cottage. The cottage is well equipped and it was nice to come back after a day out and sit in front of the wood burner. We enjoyed watching the race horses go past in a morning, while having our breakfast. A good location for exploring Wensleydale and Swaledale.

White Cottage is beautifully decorated, very cosy, well equipped and a thoughtful welcome pack was appreciated. Our boys enjoyed watching the many horses that trot through the village & exploring Middleham Castle. We had a lovely stay.

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.
