Middlesmoor is an ancient hilltop village perched on the end of a ridge overlooking Nidderdale with fine views extending Gouthwaite Reservoir. Its 1864 church was built on the top of a much older one and there is an original Anglo-Saxon font still preserved inside the church. It occupies a commanding position in front of the village at the top of the hill and can be seen for miles around. It has the most astonishing views and is the stars at night viewed from are Church are beautiful. The village has cobbled streets and stone cottages and with its lofty position at the head of the Dale is one of the most picturesque in the Dales area.

The property is surrounded by exceptional views and stunning moorland. Located on the Nidderdale Way, you can walk for miles to places such as Scar House Reservoir and Masham Moor.

If you fancy an outdoor activity you can visit How Stean Gorge Activity Centre. Experience a full day of adventure with one of their readymade packages or partake in a single activity if you want to try something specific. Rock Climbing, Abseiling, Canoeing, Caving and Mountain Biking are all on their extensive list of activities.

How Stean Gorge is well known in Yorkshire for being one of the best days out for all ages. Featured on BBC’s Countryfile, this is a place not to be missed.

If you are travelling with children, you could take a visit to see the Nidderdale Llamas or visit Studfold Adventure Trail. This is a wonderful play and discovery experience for toddlers and young children where they can explore nature and run wild in the beautiful setting of the Yorkshire Dales.

If you want to visit some local towns and villages, Pateley Bridge is a lovely little Yorkshire Dales town with a pretty high street, lined with independent shops and delightful eateries.

The delightful market town of Masham is situated in the breathtakingly beautiful region of Lower Wensleydale. The town itself boasts a large Georgian market square, said to be one of the largest in England. With a range of local shops, tearooms and great places to eat, Masham is a popular destination all year round. Masham is also famous for its family-run breweries, steam engines and annual sheep fair. Both the Black Sheep Brewery and Theakston Brewery offer tours from their visitor centre.

Ripon is approximately 20 miles from the property. This little city has a thriving market place and a magnificent cathedral, although it can be very busy, it will earn a place in any visitor’s heart.

Harrogate is a 45 minute drive away and always has a calendar full of exciting events. Wander round the Victorian spa town or book yourself onto a foodie tour or wellness weekend, there is something for everyone here.

If you prefer to stay local and enjoy the beautiful surroundings of Middlesmoor you can enjoy relaxing days with good food. At The Crown Hotel (known by the locals at ‘The Top Crown’) in the village you can enjoy home cooked food and local ales. Venture just one mile down the hill and visit another Crown Hotel (knows by locals at The Bottom Crown) to enjoy a fabulous Sunday lunch in their restaurant. Experience the rustic charm and open fires indoors or venture outside on those warmer days and dine al fresco, and both pubs are dog friendly.

Getting Around
Getting around the Yorkshire Dales is quick and convenient with the towns and villages located so close together. You can use the Leeds-Morecambe line and the famous Leeds-Settle-Carlisle line which give fantastic access to the Dales on one of the most spectacular train journeys in England.

Enjoy the beautiful countryside as you cross valleys, rise up over hills and wind round the country roads.

You can take the number 156, Little White Bus from Bainbridge, through Hawes and onto Gayle. In the opposite direction you can enjoy the drama of Aysgarth Falls and travel through to Leyburn at the heart of Wensleydale.

Everything was perfect and as described. Very comfortable stay and can’t fault any of it. Warm, amazing views and very well equipped home.



Very clean, comfortable and warm<br/>Nothing!

Diana T.


The cottage was very well equipped and had everything you need for a comfortable stay .



Perfect for the family and dogs, too. Good walks, friendly place.<br/>Everything worked well. No dislikes.



Comfort and facilties<br/>Problem with fridge door<br/>No views






Location excellent for walking and access to local pub. Accommodation top quality ?<br/>Nothing, it was great!



Very good



Beautiful surroundings- very peaceful and relaxing with great walks from the front door<br/>Inside the house there were high quality furnishings yet it also very comfortable.<br/>Enjoyed the layout of downstairs -separate sitting room with two double settees. The central heating was adjustable which was good as one day was very cold and wet yet the other warm and sunny.<br/>Both showers didn’t work in the morning so I had to go retro and was my hair under taps in the bath! There was quite a lot of dust and dirt in the kitchen on the table and the cooker when we arrived so needed a good wipe around. There were no coffee pods for the machine and nowhere nearby to buy any. You can only get a few channels on TV. There was no toilet brush in the downstairs toilet. The £10 administration fee on top of the £250 good housekeeping bond was irritating - we just paid the £24 waiver insurance fee as we couldn’t the faff of it all so I guess it’s probably a nice little earner for the management company!






Prachtig ingericht huis, veel ruimte.<br/>Ideaal met 2 stellen. 2 badkamers + tuin.<br/>Aanrader.



This apartment was perfect for us. It is close to shops, restaurants, the train station and the beach, all of which are just a short walk. Inside, everything was very clean and comfortable. We very much enjoyed our stay.






Great place to stay, very well presented and very clean






Fantastic rural location, very well furnished & fully functional property, clearly no expense spared with furniture, appliances & decor. Excellent beds, so slept vert well. It made my stay all the more special. <br/>Definitely want to return.



The cottage was fantastic, everything you need and more. The views were stunning, the local pub was great with fantastic food. If you want peace and quiet out in the sticks with luxury thrown in this a fab place.<br/>They charge a damage deposit or a waiver fee. There was damage in the cottage and you do worry about who will be blamed for this, so we felt the need to take photos just for our peace of mind. There is 1 piece of furniture in the dining room that just doesn't go with the cottage at all, the furnishings are modern and well presented but the dresser is an eye sore and should be removed and replaced with something that blends better with the other fixtures and fittings.



clean and modern<br/>all the automated emails about damage waiver etc






The location was incredible, so peaceful and beautiful scenery<br/>Chasing my dog round the village as they escaped the garden, not secure fencing



Lovely clean and spacious cottage. Has everything you need.



There was no information about the Wi-Fi password so we had to e-mail the owners.



The Cottage was just perfect for us to enjoy Middlesmoor.<br/>Nothing



Beautiful cottage in a fantastic location. The surrounding countryside is amazing & we were lucky to have glorious weather too.<br/>Although the outside was enclosed, our dog could still escape into the adjoining properties.<br/>No plastic cups/plates for children.



Exceptional cottage with everything we needed for a short break.<br/>There was nothing not to like.

We stayed here in March, and had a lovely time, the local pub is great for food, and the walking around Middlesmoor is fantastic, we will definitely be back.

Sharon Watkins


The cottage is just perfect, sitting at the top of the village and on the edge of the moors. Loved the 50 meter stroll to the traditional pub and the star-lit skies were magical. The cottage is beautifully appointed and well-equipped. It was immaculate and exactly what we’d hoped for. There’s such a lot to do in the area. We were impressed with the events and the sights to see. And the scenery. Wow! I’d rebook in a heartbeat.

Nicola Butler


What a great location- straight out the front door to wonderful walks- the property offers all the facilities for a comfortable stay- one pub a stone throw away where you can meet the locals and another down the road which again does fabulous food ! We went in February- and it blew a few cob webs away which is just what we wanted - came home refreshed- can’t wait to go back again.

Alison Moorhouse


Lovely cottage, beautifully appointed. The village is excellent with a friendly pub. Great walks from the front door, beautiful views. Would highly recommend.
