Overall we loved Middle Cottage, a gorgeous cottage. Fresh flowers and hamper were lovely as was the little card, really made us feel so welcome! The kichen is a nice place to be and well equipped and the sun trap of a patio was lovely. View from the bedroom. Spotlessly clean and possibly even better than described on the website! Good location and within our budget. Lovely hosts and great service all round! Thank you!08-Jun-2018

Description and Location
The heart of West Burton village surrounds a large green but leading to and from the green are two narrow streets known colloquially as the Front and Back Nooks. Middle Cottage, a traditional stone built cottage dating from the 18th Century, is central to a typical dales terrace of three dwellings on the elevated ground of the Back Nook.
Access is either through the front entrance on the nook or through an adjacent archway to the rear patio garden. Entry at the front is to a lounge with open beamed ceiling, stone fireplace with flagged hearth and multi-fuel stove. A short hallway with a rise of five steps leads to a recent extension with fitted kitchen, tiled floor and dining area. The kitchen enjoys lots of soft natural light and overlooks the private patio garden to the rear of the cottage. A staircase rises from the lounge to a double bedroom with beamed ceiling and an en-suite shower room with a corner shower, washbasin and toilet. The bedroom views over pasture land to the distant crags of Penhill and into Wensleydale.
A homely cottage, renovated and extended in 2015 with the retention of many original features such as open beamed ceilings, ledged pine doors, stone fireplace and all the interesting nooks and crannies typical of a dales dwelling. A flawless and stylish blend of traditional and modern enhanced with quality fittings and sympathetic decoration to honour its past. The joy of the cottage is in the detail, an ideal place for two, intimate, thoughtfully designed and completed with loving care.
Please note this cottage is let Friday to Friday.
