Renowned for its history and race horses, the attractive Wensleydale town of Middleham connects much of its history with its Norman castle, dating from 1190 and with a keep second in size only to the Tower of London. The town's charming market square has been partially cobbled and offers a wide range of shops, pubs and places to eat, whilst the bustling market town of Leyburn is just a short drive away and offers a variety of great shops and pubs. Visitors can also explore The Forbidden Corner, a unique labyrinth of tunnels, chambers and surprises set amidst four acres of grounds, which provides a fun day out for all the family. The village is also within easy driving distance of York, the North York Moors, the Yorkshire Dales and Heritage Coast.
From heather-clad moors and limestone scars, to market towns and the steady pace of country life - the sublime Dales await you! Where else in Britain is it as satisfying to sit and do nothing as it is to explore the numerous pursuits on offer?
