Middlesmoor is a hilltop village perched on the end of a ridge overlooking Nidderdale with fine views extending Gouthwaite Reservoir. Its 1864 church occupies a commanding position in front of the village at the top of the hill and can be seen for miles around. The village has cobbled streets and stone cottages and with its lofty position at the head of the Dale is one of the most picturesque in the Dales area.

The property is surrounded with exceptional views and stunning moorland. Located on the Nidderdale Way, you can walk for miles with places such as Scar House Reservoir and Masham Moor.

If you fancy an outdoor activity you can visit How Stean Gorge Activity Centre. Experience a full day of adventure with one of their readymade packages or partake in a single activity if you want to try something specific. Rock Climbing, Abseiling, Canoeing, Caving and Mountain Biking are all on their extensive list of activities.

How Stean Gorge is well known in Yorkshire for being one of the best days out for all ages. Featured on BBC’s Countryfile, this is a place not to be missed.

If you are travelling with children, you could take a visit to see the Nidderdale Llamas or visit Studfold Adventure Trail. This is a wonderful play and discovery experience for toddlers and young children where they can explore nature and run wild in the beautiful setting of the Yorkshire Dales.

If you want to visit some local towns and villages, Pateley Bridge is a lovely little Yorkshire Dales town with a pretty high street, lined with independent shops and delightful eateries.

Ripon is approximately 20 miles away. This little city has a thriving market place and a magnificent cathedral, although it can be very busy, it will earn a place in any visitor’s heart.

Harrogate is a 45-minute drive away and always has a calendar full of exciting events. Wander round the Victorian spa town or book yourself onto a foodie tour or wellness weekend, there is something for everyone here.

If you prefer to stay local and enjoy the beautiful surroundings of Middlesmoor you can enjoy relaxing days with good food. At The Crown Hotel in the village you can enjoy home cooked food and local ales. Venture a little further afield to Lofthouse and visit another Crown Hotel. Experience the rustic charm and open fires indoors or venture outside on those warmer days and dine al fresco.

Other nearby points of interest include Swinton Park Estate, Fountains Abbey, Studley Royal, Brimham Rocks, Coldstones Cut, Stump Cross Caverns, and the towns of Masham and Grassington.

Getting Around
Clackgill Cottage is set in a rural area with limited public transport so we highly recommend a car for exploring the local area.

You can use the Leeds-Morecambe line and the famous Leeds-Settle-Carlisle line which give fantastic access to the Dales on one of the most spectacular train journeys in England. The closest train station to access the railway can be found in Skipton, a 50-minute drive from Clackgill Cottage.

Enjoy the beautiful countryside as you cross valleys, rise up over hills and wind round the country roads.

Very nice, well presented, clean and well appointed house. All mod cons. Comfy beds. Loads of kitchen equipment. <br/>Location is lovely, with a hospitable pub around the corner where we had two excellent dinners (note no food being served Sunday or Monday). Seems like a lot of houses in the village are AirBnBs. <br/>Things to improve: The handle on the inside of the downstairs loo was broken so you couldn’t exit once inside! We had to rescue one of our party. Hosts reacted quickly and offered to fix it while we were staying there, but we elected to let them do it after we left. The floor mat behind the front door stops the cloakroom door opening. Our request to use the garage, made and approved well prior to arrival, turned into a debacle which was sorted after two days, but unnecessarily painful. <br/>Things to note: The campsite in the field to the rear of the property directly overlooks the rear bedrooms from 10 yards away. No food shop in the village so buy at Pately Bridge (pie shop!!)



Excellent visit for family of 8 for my dads 70th birthday, we had a wonderful time and hope to return!



Idyllic, modern decor, spacious sitting room and in the middle of nowhere.<br/><br/>No garden but drive big enough to sit outside and see the lovely views. Far from any shops so bring everything you need.



Had a great weekend with the family. Lovely property with some really nice walks. Lots of fresh air. Came home very relaxed.



Lovely stay here. <br/>Pros:<br/>Great location, easy to find and very beautiful views, the host had taken the time to decorate the house nicely and we felt very much at home, nice toiletries, well stocked kitchen (e.g. Dishes for children and lots of pots, pans) and anything else you could need. Lovely little pub around the corner, and only 20 minute drive from shops. Good communication during the stay. <br/>Cons:<br/>Communication when booking was strange, booked as the description said there would be a cot and stair gate upon request, when I booked and requested this I was told it was incorrectly advertised, I brought my own travel cot and when I arrived there was one here! A couple off ad hoc cleanliness issues, air fryer hasn't been cleaned, a couple of the towels smelled a little musty, and I found a large piece of broken glass by my bed (which was alarming because I was staying with a toddler), but the rest of the place was nice and clean. <br/>I'd recommend the place, and would stay again.



This was a beautiful cottage with everything you need. Clean , well equipped and situated in a very quaint village. The whole booking experience and lots of contact was brilliant. Definitely use Host &Stay again. <br/>Many thanks <br/>Allison



Nice house, well maintained. Photos look much bigger than reality.



Clackgill Cottage was everything it was advertised to be! It was beautiful and clean, well stocked with anything you may need. Definitely home away from home....added to that the fantastic location and eye-watering Yorkshire views I would highly recommend a visit. Also a fast response from the Airbnb team with any questions. All in all we all had a great Time!



Absolutely beautiful home from home. A really well equipped kitchen, gorgeous bedrooms, cozy front room and gorgeous views. We had a wonderful stay. Thank you



Stayed for 3 wonderful nights during the big freeze but the house was toasty warm and cosy. A beautiful cottage with three spacious bedrooms and the fourth a good size for bunk beds.<br/>The four of us came here for a sewing retreat and the enormous kitchen was perfect for us. It was also the most well appointed kitchen I've ever stayed in!<br/>We had a blissful time and will be booking again very soon!



We enjoyed a lovely few days at Clackgill Cottage over New Year it was immaculate and very tastefully decorated. The kitchen inparticular was pristine and extremely well equipped. Middlesmoor is very picturesque and ideal if you like a good ramble through the Yorkshire countryside.



Lovely cosy spot for the weekend. House was immaculate, spacious and well stocked with utilities. <br/>Walks from the cottage door and pub Nextdoor served up great food.



We loved our stay here.. Will definitely be booking again! Highly recommend!



Great location beautiful views, house is immaculate and looks new throughout, really well equipped and beds really comfortable, would strongly recommend and will be back soon, thank you for a lovely stay



We loved the cottage and the location, would definitely recommend it.



Lovely place, well equipped and to a high standard. Thanks



A great place in a small village at the head of the nidderdale valley. House was excellent. Enough space for 8 and we were only 4!<br/>Pub literally 50m away - food til 7 latest! But also great



Very well equipped and comfortable property. <br/>Would highly recommend.
