Cottage Description

Welcome to Yorkshire Member Yorkshire Visitor Information

Briar cottage, dating from the 18th century, has been renovated to reveal some of its 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 bright lounge with Victorian fireplace and a 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 there is another cosy lounge which has a stone arched fireplace with multi-fuel stove.

A stairway rises from the 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 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 beently renovated to reveal wooden lintels above the windows and stone work. The use of half-glass doors allows natural light to warm and brighten all the rooms. A cosy cottage, full of character, provides a good high standard of accommodation.
