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 living, 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, well-equipped with all the appliances a budding chef needs to whip up a holiday feast. 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.
