    About this property

    An impressive cottage with beams and views of the Middleham Castle. Beautiful south facing garden and just a short walk from the village square.
    Perfectly located right in the heart of the popular village of Middleham in beautiful Wensleydale, Barbican Cottage is the perfect location for guests wanting to really explore the local area and be a part of this historic racehorse training village. Lovingly renovated, Barbican Cottage offers guests beautiful accommodation, contemporary fixtures and fittings, quality facilities and still maintains the charm and character of the building. On the ground floor guests will find an open plan lounge dining and kitchen area. The area is spacious and light yet still remains comfortable and cosy with a beautiful tiled floor and exposed original beams. The kitchen is very practical with appliances including an induction hob, electric oven, microwave, washing machine, fridge, freezer and dishwasher. On the first floor there are two good sized bedrooms with the master bedroom offering a king size bed, electric wood burner and views across to Middleham Castle which is just behind the cottage. The second bedroom has a single bed and pull out bed giving plenty of choice for guests wanting to travel as a family, couple or small group of friends. The family bathroom is very well presented with a large walk-in shower cubicle and heated towel rail. The garden to the rear is just delightful and is south facing so guests will really be able to make the most of the outdoor seating area and patio. Beautifully maintained and extremely well kept, the secluded, walled garden at Barbican Cottage is a rare find in such a small village, and is a real asset to the cottage. There is ample parking on the cobbles to the front of the cottage.

    Perfect for horse lovers, Middleham is renowned for its long history and also serves as a thriving racehorse community. Guests will be able to watch as top class racehorses are ridden daily through the village and up to the gallops in the fields at the edge of the village. Ideal for a luxurious romantic break, there are many pubs, restaurants and cafes within easy walking distance and all are well known for serving good quality, local food and produce. Middleham Castle lies just behind Barbican Cottage and was once the home of Richard III and was referred to in former times as the “Windsor of the North”. Middleham is a great place for families too with plenty of attractions to visit and explore within a short driving distance. Local attractions include the popular Chocolate Factory, Tennants Auction House and tea pottery which are all located in Leyburn just two and a half miles away as well as The Forbidden Corner which is a hidden folly offering twists, turns and excitement around every corner, and is situated just four miles away from Barbican Cottage. Another popular attraction is the Wensleydale Railway which stops in Leyburn and travels through some of the most spectacular scenery in the Yorkshire Dales. Guests who enjoy walking, cycling or even just exploring will find an abundance of established public footpaths, cycle paths and bridleways that lead right from the village itself onwards towards and through the Dales and beyond. A visit to the Dales Countryside Museum is also a must. The scenery here is magnificent at any time of year and guests will find themselves on a journey through heather covered grouse moorland, open countryside, natural woodland and pretty, little Yorkshire villages. A little further afield, but still within easy driving distance, guests will be able to visit Castle Bolton, Jervaulx Abbey and Wensleydale Creamery as well as Aysgarth Falls, Hawes, Gayle Mill, York, Harrogate and Ripon.

    "Loved the cottage and the location. Had a lovely stay and our dog enjoyed the walks. So much to see and lots of nice pubs and as a horse owner was great to see all the race horses"
    Kathy ‐ 29 Sep 2018
    "Walks straight from the cottage and a Castle next door. Lovely situation in a very comfortable and well equipped cottage. Our spaniel loved it as well although he was a little suspicious of the artificial grass to begin with! Enjoyed having a short walk to local pubs for evening meals. Hope to be able to return."

    "Excellent cottage. We had the feeling that the owners wanted us to really enjoy ourselves. They had made it lovely inside and thought of everything. The stylish interior decorating and furniture complemented the cottage perfectly. Good for couples, friends or families. Everything was very comfortable. They'd left lots of information and even quizzes (which kept us up until the early hours).Two little things that could possibly be changed: we said we weren't bringing a pet, so we would rather the dog basket and blankets hadn't been placed in the living room next to the sofa. Perhaps they could be stored in the understairs cupboard if guests don't have a dog. Or in the porch. Also, it might be a good idea to put some stickers on the glass door into the kitchen to avoid any accidents.All in all, we had a great weekend break at Barbican Cottage and would recommend staying there."

    "This is the second time we have stayed at Barbican Cottage and it didn't disappoint. The only reason I didn't give it 10 out of 10 for cleanliness was that there was a used towel left on the back of the bathroom door when we arrived. It is a lovely cottage in a good area with lots of things to do locally."
    David ‐ 3 Sep 2018
    "This lovely,comfortable,welcoming cottage and location exceeded all our expectations - a real haven for a peaceful and relaxing holiday. We visited Hawes, Masham, Richmond, Bedale as well as Jervaulx Abbey & Middleham Castle. Some great places to eat and dog friendly to boot - we enjoyed the Richard III pub in Middleham. No doubt we will return as our Shih Tzu insists !David, Anne-Marie and Harvey ( the Shih Tzu)"

    "Nice cottage and well maintained. WiFi didn’t work all week, which was disappointing. Lounge area is dark and needs lights on even on very sunny days. Location is very good."
