Stonecroft Cottage

Stonecroft is a traditional style Yorkshire Dales cottage created from the Richard III inn's coach house; much of its stone would have been 'reclaimed' from the castle's ruins. Stonecroft is quietly situated in a cobbled lane, just off the Market Square in the historic Wensleydale town of Middleham.

The imposing Middleham castle is a short distance away and all the town's amenities are within a minute's walk. There is a regular bus service. The nearest railway station is 15 miles away in Northallerton. The major road route, the old Roman Great North Road (now the A1) is 12 miles to the east.

Renovated to a high standard, Stonecroft Cottage retains much character, including exposed beams in all rooms. The period oak furnishings and subtle concealed lighting have been carefully selected to make your stay cosy and comfortable. Complementary wi-fi and land-line telephone are included in the rent and one well behaved dog is welcome.
