Briar Cottage in North Yorkshire, a cottage in Yorkshire and Cleveland: Briar Cottage exterior

Charming cottage in village location with multi fuel stove and off road parking.

Briar cottage, dating from the 18th century, recently renovated to reveal some of its once original features and is part of a small, interesting, terrace which sits on the fringe of the cobbles looking out towards the torn ramparts of Middleham Castle. In the quiet, upper market place there are small formal gardens and ancient cobbled areas which compliment the pretty traditional stone cottages.

Entry, at the front of the cottage, is to a cosy lounge with Victorian fireplace and dining room area with slate tiled floor which views out into the flagged courtyard. From the dining area there is a pretty, well equipped, fully fitted, shaker style kitchen and slate floor. To the side of the entrance lounge is a further lounge which has a stone arched fireplace with multi fuel stove.

A stairway rises from this lounge to a small landing serving three bedrooms and a bathroom with bath, power shower over the bath, washbasin and toilet. One bedroom has a double bed, one has twin beds and the other has a single day bed. The double and twin rooms view out over the cobbles towards the castle.

A stable door leads from the dining room to a shared courtyard with border gardens and a flagged patio area. This courtyard area can also be reached from the market place through a private alleyway, with a door, leading between the adjacent cottages.

Briar Cottage has been recently renovated revealing wooden lintels above the windows and stone work. The use of half-glass pine doors allows natural light to warm and brighten all the rooms. A cosy cottage, full of character, provides a good high standard of accommodation.

Short breaks/flexible changeovers at any time of year.


Middleham

Where the steep flanks of the dominant Penhill, separating Wensleydale and Coverdale, gently recede towards the convergence of the rivers Ure and Cover the high fells of Wensleydale are left behind but the southern hillsides of Coverdale continue towards Witton Fell. Here, as the valleys merge, sheltered from the prevailing westerly weather on the lowest reaches of Penhill sits Middleham. The ancient sentinel protecting the once important Pennine crossing to Skipton and Lancashire.

There are two cobbled market places, each with a stone cross, bordered by impressive houses, large and small, many of them built with pilfered stone from the castle. In latter years the village has been extended along the hillsides in contemporary guise but still holds its serenity and history. No longer a sentry guarding but now a major centre for breeding and training racehorses. This equestrian association and dependence is reflected in the names of shops, cafes and restaurants and so evident each day as the strings of horses pass through the market places to go and return from their training gallops on the nearby moors.
