The Coach House Family Cottage description

Holiday home
The Coach House is situated to the rear of the owner's Georgian Guest House, The Priory, in the heart of Middleham. The cottage sleeps eight people and has a super king-size double and en-suite shower room, a room with adult bunk beds, a double bedroom, a bathroom, a fitted kitchen with dining area and a sitting room with an electric fire and an additional double sofa bed. Outside the cottage has free parking which is available in front of The Priory and shared use of the owner's lawned garden with BBQ, there is also a private roof top terrace with furniture. With excellent walking opportunities and amenities nearby, The Coach House is an ideal base for a holiday in Yorkshire.

Renowned for its history and race horses, the attractive Wensleydale town of Middleham is dominated by its Norman castle, dating from 1190. This impressive structure boasts a castle keep, second in size only to the Tower of London. The town's market square has been cobbled and is home to a wide range of shops, pubs and places to eat, though for more choice, the bustling town of Leyburn is just a short drive away. The Forbidden Corner, a unique labyrinth of tunnels, chambers and surprises is also close by and is located in four acres of grounds. With Wensleydale, York, the North York Moors, the Yorkshire Dales and Heritage Coast all within easy driving distance, visitors to this lovely town will be spoiled for choice.

From heather-clad moors and limestone scars, to market towns and the steady pace of country life - the sublime Dales await you! Where else in Britain is it as satisfying to sit and do nothing as it is to explore the numerous pursuits on offer?

Sarah and Chris were the perfect owners, friendly,thoughtful, helpful and nothing was too much trouble. Sarah made us a cake on arrival which was lovely and suitable for the baby in our party who cannot eat dairy. The accommodation was spacious and comfortable, the master bedroom was lovely including a balcolny. We had a perfect week exploring the area and loved watching the horses coming through the village up to the gallops. The village has everything you need with plenty of pubs and a village grocery with anything you may need. We all had a fantastic time and would recommend it to all who want to explore the area.

The property was excellent and the friendliness of the owners and their staff was absolutely superb. We had a fantastic holiday in an idyllic setting and we most definitely intend to return. Oh and the dogs loved the place too! We've already recommended it to some friends who have booked a week there soon, they'll have a great time I'm sure.

We loved the setting opposite the castle, the proximity of the The Coach House to the centre of the village, and ease of parking in the immediate area. The kitchen was well equipped and there was plenty of seating in the kitchen and the lounge.

A great place to stay in Middleham and The Coach House is a little gem. The owners seem to go above and beyond to ensure their guest have a memorable holiday. All the little extra touches with the welcome cake, special toiletries in the bathrooms, white fluffy dressing gowns, one would think you were in 5 star accommodation. Well and truly lovely.

The cottage we stayed in far exceeded our expectations with everything from the lovely character it had to having everything we needed, a real home from home....we will definitely be returning in the summer! The location was one of the most picturesque towns I have visited in the UK and having lots of pubs made it all the better! A great new year had by all including Bailey the dog!

Great location and property is of a very high standard, both in terms of furnishing and decor. A good finish and good taste too. Owners on site were very friendly and helpful, tolerant of my 2 dogs. Absolutely nothing I would change - just perfect!

Lovely, friendly owners made us feel very welcome. The location of the property was very child friendly. We had everything we needed there were some lovely extra little touches in the cottage.
Mrs Garwood

A wonderful spot for hill walking and visiting places of interest in the Dales and the North York Moors and even further afield such as County Durham. There was also a really good choice of local pubs for evening meals. Loved seeing and hearing the racehorses being ridden through the village. The owner is a very welcoming host. All 4 of us really enjoyed our holiday and would stay in The Coach House again.
September 2014
This property is so lovely. Very cosy, warm and welcoming. Nice and spacious. The beds and bedding are high quality. Lots of towels supplied and fab smellies. Nice space outside to sit and have a nice glass of wine. (Could do with being a bit more private though). The owners are very friendly and helpful. Also made the best chocolate cake ever tasted :) Middleham is a pretty village with the amazing castle and views. We had a few lovely walks too. The village is close to many fabulous places to visit. Bolton Castle, Jervaulx Abbey, Malham, Hawes, Brimham Rocks. Even little Wensley with its waterfall and candle workshop. Views galore whether ever you go. I will miss it! A few cons....second bedroom could do with a kingsize in there as a double for the week was a bit of a squeeze and uncomfy. A cot and hairchair are supplied which is great but we could have really done with a stairgate too. The toaster in the kitchen is just a 2 slicer and when the property sleeps 8, it means breakfast takes a long time! Also it gets very hot on the outside and burnt all of us at some point! Not sure there is much they can do about this but a property of this size could do with a downstairs loo. A bigger fridge also would help, again as it sleeps 8, you need more storage space. The kitchen is big enough for a tall fridge freezer. And last one, a tumble dryer would be helpful as you can't always rely on the weather to dry the clothes (more pegs needed too) All in all we had a fantastic time and would all happily go back there.

The friendliness of the owners and their kindness to us all. The position of the property in the Dales was perfect and the racing stables in the village gave us all a very interesting experience with them coming through the village every day. Sarah and Chris also run a tea shop with delicious cakes. The local shop had everything we needed and the local pubs provided good reasonably priced food and entertainment.
July 2015
We love Middleham and have been twice before this visit, but we hadn't stayed in The Coach House. On arrival we were shown round the cottage by the owner Chris and we were not disappointed. From immaculately clean rooms to lovely shower toiletries, to fluffy white bath robes in each room, this was a fantastic home from home. We had everything we needed..except WiFi connection, however, faced with a week without it and three teenagers armed with iPhone and iPads we were not looking forward to the week. They amazed us by actually talking to us, reading books, from the extensive collection in the cottage, and even playing chess. WiFi is not needed Chris, I take it back!! We tried the fabulous cakes on offer in the owners Tea Rooms at the front of the cottage and were even given a tour of the guest house. If you need a luxury place to stay for a few days, ask for Room Six!!!! its amazing. None of us wanted to come home, it really is a great place to stay, the Town is lovely, it has four pubs all doing food, a lovely little grocery shop and its a great base for exploring the Yorkshire Moors. Get up early and watch the race horses going up to the gallops for their morning exercise or better still go up to the gallops to watch them. Cant wait to visit again, thanks Chris and Sarah for a lovely time and LUSH banana cake! x

Warm, friendly welcome, very spacious, clean cottage. Bed extremely comfortable with good quality mattress and linen. Nice range of complimentary toiletries. Excellent complimentary banana cake provided on arrival. Nothing too much trouble for the owners who live in the attached guest house and are available 24/7 should you need them. Location is very quiet but within easy walking distance of a variety of pubs and an excellent restaurant called Fairhursts. An extra bonus for us was that it is completely dog-friendly.

This beautiful cottage is in a peaceful location in the pretty little village of Middleham. Well equipped and spacious with a lovely terrace off the master bedroom, plus use of the owners' garden. Chris and Sarah were friendly and welcoming and nothing was too much trouble for them. Bed was the most comfortable we have ever slept in. Village has plenty of options for eating and the locals very friendly. Great base for visiting the area and for beautiful walks. Should we return to Middleham in the future then we would DEFINITELY stay in the Coach House.
