Stonecroft is a traditional style Yorkshire Dales cottage quietly situated in a cobbled lane, just off the Market Square and a short walk from the shops and pubs in the historical town of Middleham, home of Richard III.

Had a great few days in a lovely spacious cottage with everything you needed. Bathroom lovely and modern and kitchen had everything but a dishwasher but with 4 pubs doing great food, that wasn't a problem. Perfect location within Middleham. Would definitely recommend.Mr Steve Knox - 14th April 2016

The town of Middelham is close by and is well worth a visit for those interested in racehorsing, the town is famous for its stables and you can watch the horses go through the village each morning, heading up to the gallops for their daily exercise. See the largest keep in the north of England at the historic Middleham Castle, the castle dates back to 1190 and was once occupied by King Richard III. The historic market town of Richmond is within a few miles and offers leisure facilities, a swimming pool and cinema. Reeth and Hawes, home to the Wensleydale Creamery, are within a half hour's drive.
There's always something happening throughout the town, with festivals and fairs are held throughout the year. For more information on Whitby and the surrounding area and local events see our Yorkshire Dales Guide and the Festivals & Events Guide.
At the heart of Wensleydale is the gateway town of Leyburn. With spectacular views of the surrounding countryside, unusual local shops and cafes, traditional pubs and a weekly market, it's an ideal base for walking, sightseeing, or just watching the world go by. Leyburn Market offers local produce on a Friday market. Although Leyburn is best explored on foot, with the Teapot Factory a great attraction, no visit would be complete without a trip to the spectacular Aysgarth Falls.
