A lovely cottage in a superb location. The lovely courtyard is a sun trap. The owner was very helpful.

A lovely holiday cottage that was warm, cosy and very centrally located for touring the Yorkshire Dales.

Enjoying The Gatehouse and its high standard of accommodation was an important part of the holiday. There were many places to visit a short car journey away and lovely walks from the property and in the surrounding countryside.

All in all we enjoyed an excellent break in the Dales. The owner of our accommodation was very welcoming, knowledgeable and helpful. The food served to us at the nearby Black Bull pub in Middleham was of an excellent standard.

We spent a wonderful week at The Gatehouse in Middleham in August 2014. The cottage was of the highest standard and was so comfortable. The 2 en suite bathrooms were fantastic, the kitchen immaculate, the lounge and beds very comfortable. The owner met us when we arrived, and very kindly helped carry our bags from the car, gave us all the information we needed about the cottage, and also some terrific recommendations of where to eat in Middleham and of some local attractions. The cottage was very private and quiet, despite being very near the main square, and so extremely well situated and convenient for everything. There was a lovely private terrace space where we had breakfast and an evening glass of wine outside. We had an absolutely super time, and the extremely high quality of the accommodation was a big part of that.

Our first time in the Dales and we loved our week roaming across the countryside. Very impressed with Sykes Cottages but even more impressed with the outstanding quality of this accommodation. We were welcomed by Roger on arrival who was friendly, thorough and informative..........he even helped us to unpack. Thank you. This property is beautiful, spacious, well appointed and equipped. Value for money, excellent. We couldn't believe additional cleaning materials, toilet rolls, ............... The wood burner is a first for us and we loved it! The outside space is impressive too.

The Gatehouse was a little treasure - and provided a true home from home for us. We were greeted by the owners on arrival with a complete walk through the cottage and who explained everything about the place. The location is excellent - literally a few feet from Middleham main square yet so absolutely private and nice to have the car parked off-road. The owners were particularly friendly and shared great advice on where to eat, the local amenities and the 'not-to-be-missed' sites. If any advice was needed they were only next door and also helped in our visit to Jervaulx Abbey in East Witton so we could explore the wonderful grounds and take the 'short' walk home to the Gatehouse. The village is home to many racehorse stables so it was lovely to see the horses being ridden in the mornings to their daily warm-up run on The Gallops; it's not everyday you get to see racehorses at such close quarters. With so much to see and do in the near vicinity, our planned trip to York had to be skipped. Which is good news really as we will have to return again! For us, there will only be one place to stay - The Gatehouse. Highly recommend and one of the nicest cottages we have ever rented either in the UK or abroad.

Delightful, comfortable cottage. Owners helpful and friendly and the location superb. Wonderful to see the horses going through village up to the gallops every day. Thoroughly enjoyed our week at the gate house and the area around Middleham has some great scenic rides out.
