Fantastic House Great Views Central Base for Exploring area

House was absolutely fantastic, better than described on web site 4 excellent sized bedrooms all with on suites plus downstairs room with 2 single sofa beds were available if needed Social areas all good sized and it was nice to have 2 areas where people could watch different things on TV Dining room and upstairs lounge have full height windows which makes the most of the wonderful views We had many birds visiting including a pair of pheasants and it was a joy to watch the lambs with their mothers in the field next door It was certainly a great choice and would recommend families as there is lots to do in the surrounding area If we visit this area again with a large group we would certainly stay at Beningborough again

Idyllic location for family get-together

From start to finish, our stay at this beautifully-renovated and spacious 4 bedroomed cottage was perfect. We chose this house after extensive research, hoping to find somewhere that would enable us to meet up in comfort with various family members and share our love of the Dales. The house exceeded our expectations in virtually every department, and we will certainly return in the future. The owners live close by, and were friendly and attentive throughout our stay, giving our children an open invitation to wander the adjacent fields amongst the young lambs and sheep, which they loved. All of our questions and additional small needs were dealt with instantly, and by the end of the week we felt like a part of the local community! All bedrooms are fitted to a 5 star standard, with abundant linen and towels. Each bedroom has its own en-suite facilities. Two additional sofa beds are provided in the downstairs sitting room, though it is, however, worth noting that there is no additional bathroom, so any extra guests have to make use of the facilities in one of the bedrooms. This wasn't a big issue for us during our stay. We were fortunate that the weather was extremely kind for 6 of the 7 days days we were there, so the excellent sitting rooms were supplemented by extensive use of the gardens surrounding the property. Good quality and sufficient garden furniture is supplied, and the grassed area is large enough for all manner of games and relaxation. But the best thing of all is the view across the mouth of Wensleydale, encompassing nearby Leyburn, and other small villages, with a backdrop of green hills and trees. Perfect for relaxing over a glass or two at the end of the day! We tried all four pubs in the local village of Middleham, including meals at our two favourites, the Black Bull and White Swan. With the local chip shop and Chinese takeaway, there isn't much reason to use the excellent kitchen for anything more than snacks and drinks. All in all, a wonderful find, and thoroughly recommended for groups and families with children.

Outstanding property

Stayed in this wonderful property last week with three other couples and could not fault it. Every conceivable appliance supplied and the accommodation is outstanding. The walks from your door are breathtaking especially if you make the effort to get up onto the Peaks overlooking the town. Thank you Roger and Hillary for providing such a lovely property to rent, we will be back.

The property was ideal for our party of 6 adults and 3 very excited children for our Christmas break. The photographs on Sykes website do not do this property any justice. The owners Mr and Mrs Murray were more than helpful and made sure the house was fully equipped for all our needs. Thank you. There is so much room in the property, massive kitchen, dining area and huge lounge, plus with the quieter den downstairs there was enough room for everyone even the three very giddy children. All in all a very comfortable stay and highly recommended.

Fabulous property, gorgeous views, perfect for a large group

We were really pleasantly surprised at how gorgeous this house was as the photos don't do it justice. This is an excellent property with a quirky layout, good sized bedrooms all having modern ensuites. The house is well equipped and has everything you could think of particularly in the kitchen. We loved sitting in the conservatory watching the lambs and enjoying the scenery. The village has 4 pubs that serve excellent food and drink as well as a well stocked village shop. Mr and Mrs Murray were excellent hosts, friendly and helpful to us. A wonderful week thank you!
