    Intimate, stylish and perfectly proportioned, welcome to Warwick Coach House. This one-bedroom bolthole nestles in the heart of one of Wensleydale’s prettiest villages and looks directly out towards Middleham Castle. Some lovely cafes and restaurants a stone’s throw away and just a short walk will take you into Yorkshire’s glorious open countryside. It’s the perfect choice for honeymoons and those who want to whisk their loved one away for a grown-up treat.

And in the evenings fire up the wood-burner and catch up on the large LCD TV

    The quirky layout of the kitchen makes great use of the space. It’s really well equipped with everything any keen cook could want and there are plenty of mod cons including a dishwasher, microwave and washer-dryer. We’re rather fond of the Jamie Oliver glassware too.

    Make your way upstairs to the stunning master bedroom. Like something from a 5 Star Hotel, this breath-taking room features a beautiful king size bed and dramatic monsoon shower set behind a glass wall. It’s glamorous and romantic, while the soft Farrow & Ball walls give it a sophisticated vibe. The bed is dressed in the finest White Company bed linen and features a top quality HYPNOS mattress. The en suite includes a WC, and there are complimentary toiletries and bath-robes to enjoy.

    Outside there is a private and sheltered patio with a great view of the castle walls. It’s a lovely spot for your morning coffee; sit and imagine what was going on in the castle opposite you many hundreds of years ago. And later on you can wrap up, pop open a bottle of wine and cosy down in front of the chimenea…
