Cottage overview - owner's description
Like a miniature “Downton Abbey”, this 18th century manor in Yorkshire infuses a sense of grandeur into everyday life. Stately, spacious rooms - furnished with antiques and the finest linens - invite you to enjoy a heightened country lifestyle. You'll be greeted by the housekeeper, who will help you settle in and decide which sights to see (besides the 3 acres of beautiful gardens).
This holiday manor features endless spaces for entertaining. The traditional dining room has space for 18 to feast, while a fireplace and family portraits look on. Have a friendly game in the billiards room, flooded with light from tall windows and the roof lantern above, or enjoy tea in the traditional drawing room, where arched windows look out on the gardens beyond. You'll feel like royalty in the bedrooms, featuring Super king and Emperor-size beds, feather pillows, and plush, high-quality bedding.
The nearest town is Middleham, a settlement that has existed since Roman times, and now houses your local pub just 1 km away. The eponymous castle is well worth a visit - a striking roofless ruin set in flawless farmland. Dales National Park is nearby, a 15 minute drive will take you to Aysgarth Falls. .
There are ten spacious bedrooms and nine bathrooms of which four are en-suite, each with its own charming character. The majority of bedrooms are furnished with Super king and Emperor beds, one is double. Beds are made up with down feature pillows and duvets, crisp white linen, sumptuous throws and soft toweling bathrobes. Each bathroom has ample bath sheets and hand towel for each guest.
*** An extra bed can be provided, making the maximum capacity 21 people. This extra bed is of course not as comfortable as the other beds, and there is an additional charge of £50 per stay for use of the extra bed.
A large light filtered room with arched windows, original shutters and views across the garden filled with family portraits and a grand piano. This is a comfortable and versatile room to entertain.
A traditional country house dining room that seats up to eighteen comfortably, set amongst family portraits with an open fire place.
Natural light floods this stunning room through the central roof lantern, and tall Georgian windows and french door lead out across the lawn. The recently restored billiard table and original lighting provides endless entertainment day and night.
Utility & Boot Room
The boot room is equipped with the large original sink, washing machine, 2 clothes racks, iron and ironing board. There is also a well equipped cleaning cupboard. There is ample space for boots and coats and a useful central wooden table.
The house is a charming, 18th century Georgian manor set on 3 acres of private walled garden and situated in the heart of picturesque Middleham.
Middleham was once known as ‘the Windsor of the North' because of the frequent visits of monarchs and nobles to Middleham Castle. It was also home to Richard III in 1471. It is a picturesque dale village with its own Castle, parish church, and charming market square surrounded by local pubs, restaurants, shops, rivers and the most stunning landscape in the country.
The village today derives much of its prosperity from the breeding and training of racehorses, and there are many well known racing stables in and around the town.
- On the doorstep are dales, heather covered moors, rivers, waterfalls and picturesque dale villages.
- Local restaurants and pubs are close by.
- House keeper
A private cook, babysitter, taxi service, massage and beauty treatments can be arranged.
