Overview

About the property

Three bedrooms sleeping 5, conservatory and open fire.

Situated in a quiet cul-de-sac on the outskirts of Middleham, just 5 minutes walk from the village centre and castle, Kelda Garthr (Tranquil Garden) is an ideal base to explore North Yorkshire.

Kelda Garthr is a three bedroom, centrally heated self-catering house, offering one double with wall mounted television, one twin and one single bedroom, sleeping a maximum of 5. The comfortable lounge to the rear has all the usual facilities including a television, DVD player, CD player and X-box 360. A good selection of books and games are also available. This room also has an open fire with logs provided for you to use if you wish. There is an adjoining conservatory, and this along with the lounge and two rear bedrooms have stunning views over the fields at the rear of the house. The garden at the rear has been designed to attract birds and many varieties can be seen. The property has a bathroom with bath and walk-in shower with the added convenience of a downstairs WC. The kitchen has the usual facilities including a hob cooker, grill and oven, fridge with a small freezer compartment and a good sized dishwasher.

Two sets of golf clubs and a trolley are available for you to use should you wish to visit one of the courses in the area.

There is off road parking for up to three cars.

The village has a convenience store, fish and chip shop, antique shops and four pubs. In addition there is of course the castle, a children's play area and several stables should you have an interest in horse racing. The gallops are approximately half a mile away and the local horses (said to be several hundred) can be seen exercising most, if not every, morning here. Just a short 2 mile drive takes you to Leyburn with all the facilities you would expect from a small market town.

Short breaks (minimum 3 night stay) are welcome during off-peak seasons providing they do not span a two week period with Saturday being the changeover day, i.e.. within a Saturday to Saturday period. Unfortunately Kelda Garthr IS NOT suitable for wheelchair access. Strictly no smoking and no pets.

Why The Owner chose Yorkshire Dales

I have been visiting North Yorkshire for over 20 years and never tire of it. Having nearly purchased the house I rented all these years I decided to cast the net a little wider and looked at Middleham as one of the possibilities. The moment I opened the lounge door and saw the view to the rear I fell in love with the place.

What makes this house unique

Just 12 miles from the A1 Middleham is a great base to explore North Yorkshire. York and Newcastle are an hour away if you like shopping, the East Yorkshire coast and Yorkshire Moors can be explored if you wish a full day out or maybe you would just like to drive through the scenic routes of the Yorkshire Dales.

If you like racehorses there are several stables in the village with a few hundred horses. The gallops nearby can be easily walked to where you can see them being exercised in a morning.

For steam railway enthusiasts there is the National Railway Museum in York, Locomotion at Shildon and the preserved line just 2 miles away in Leyburn. If you are a little more adventurous there is the splendour of The North Yorkshire Moors Railway in Heartbeat territory.

There are also many historical sites to visit in the area. Jervaulx Abbey is just 3 miles away but there are many other sites including Fountains Abbey, Rievaulx Abbey, Richmond Castle, Helmsley Castle and Hartlepool Docks to name but a few.

Finally, 45 minutes away in Thirsk, is the James Herriot Museum, synonymous with glorious Yorkshire Dales.

Perfect home in the Dales

  • 5 of 5

This lovely home in Middleham met our needs perfectly. Our favorite space was the conservatory overlooking their garden and a field of sheep. It was a perfect location foe exploring the Wensleydale and Swaildale areas. We took many walks through the countryside and enjoyed watching race horses walking through the middle of town.

Excellent views

The position of the property is excellent, not overlooked with lovely views. Everything we needed was there and comfortable bed.

Great property in a great location

  • 5 of 5

Had a fantastic visit to the area. The house had everything we wanted, and my boys loved the xbox! Views from Penhill were stunning. Great location for some geocaching. Would definitely return again to this property.

Fantastic Holiday

  • 5 of 5

Lovely accommodation, more like a home than a holiday let, with beautiful views out over the dales. Just a few minutes walk into the village for a good choice of pubs/ restuarants. Will certainly be looking at re-visiting in the future. Many thanks James.

Great base for walking and exploring the Eastern Dales

  • 5 of 5

Kelda Gathr was an excellent base for us (3 adults) who enjoy walking and exploring. We all love the Dales but have usually stayed further west or south. This time we wanted to be further east. Middleham itself is interesting and we were able to visit Richmond and Ripon (on showery days) as well as find many varied walks without having to drive too far. A little further away, near Hawes, we watched red squirrels - the highlight of the week for all of us.

The house was easy to find and had everything we needed for an enjoyable week. The views are stunning, the location quiet, and the owner very helpful with the questions we had before we went.
