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.

Getting Around
Getting around the Yorkshire Dales is quick and convenient with the towns and villages located so close together. 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.

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

You can take the number 156, Little White Bus from Bainbridge, through Hawes and onto Gayle. In the opposite direction you can enjoy the drama of Aysgarth Falls and travel through to Leyburn at the heart of Wensleydale.

lovely accommodation and good value for money



a great stay in a perfect part of the country. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Communication was fantastic, instant replies to all our queries, happily recommend them.



A really nice and peaceful place.



Comfortable and functional house. Beautiful countryside and very quiet.



Beautiful place in a lovely location. Thanks.



Beautiful house. Immaculately kept. Lovely village and very peaceful. Perfect for walking the dog and the kids flew kites.



Lovely stay, just like the photos. Beautiful scenery and greats pubs and walks. Would recommend !



Absolutely beautiful and the cottage had everything we needed, we will be booking again ??



Great place to stay and perfect location for some awesome walks.. pub in the village was in walking distance, the house itself was pristinely clean, spacious and comfortable. Only niggle I had was a dog which persisted to bark most of the night..obviously not the owners fault but take ear plugs just incase..problem solved ?



The accommodation was really comfortable and clean. It is close to lots of nice walks. Overall, we had a good experience staying here. Only thing to note is that, as mentioned in other reviews for this place, the back garden is not fully dog-proof.



Excellent location for some lovely walks and cycling. <br/>Great pub nearby, 1 minutes walk away. <br/>House very clean, tidy and comfortable



The house is just as described, really modern with everything you would need which was perfect for our trip. The location is beautiful and great walks in the surrounding areas.<br/>We had some issues with how to work things in the house and when contacting the hosts they were not helpful as our stay was during a bank holiday.<br/>The first day the property ran out of hot water, the instructions on the property simply stated ‘hot water on demand’, and the host did not have an answer for us. We had to put the central heating was on to heat the hot water tank but it was hot outside so made the stay uncomfortable. I had to contact the host numerous times without a resolution and one person was quite rude on the phone so this was very disappointing. The oven also had no instructions and only the grill would work so we had to eat at the pub each evening.<br/>Overall great accommodation with lack of basic requirements and bad communication from host.



WARNING - if you are booking this through airbnb this property requires sign up to a different set of terms and the payment of a security deposit.<br/>Given the requirement to pay a security deposit and the expensive rate for this property I was expecting great things. Although the property was well presented it was suffering from a lack of investment in basic wear and tear. For example one of the toilets was blocked on arrival and failed to be fixed during our stay, the bath panel was detached, one of the blinds broken and some of the skirting boards falling off. The cleanliness of some areas was also lacking - we found a set of filthy bowls in the cupboard and the woodwork around the dining area was food stained. <br/>In a cheaper property and one that was not collecting an accidental damage fee this might have been acceptable- but the house just did not live up to its advertising.<br/>Finally the TV was advertised as having on demand services and netflix. its from 2007 and has neither.



Set in the idylic village of Middlesmoor, Nidderdale, Foggyshaw Lodge is a peaceful haven in a remarkably picturesque area of Yorkshire. The accommodation was extensive, modern, warm and comfortable. It was mostly well equipped, but there were some differences between the listed inventory and what was available, notably a cot, despite our having re-checked availability beforehand with Host & Stay. The owner provided one soon after our arrival, for which we were grateful, but frankly it was disappointing to have to spend the initial hours of our stay sorting this out. Nevertheless, we were pleased to have had the opportunity to holiday in a lovely home in such beautiful surroundings. Particularly, may I make mention of the warm welcome from the local community, either on walks or in The Crown, an authentic Dales hostelry, a one minute walk from Foggyshaw Lodge: the local beer was excellent, the food was wonderfully cooked and generously portioned, and the staff made us feel 'at home'.



Accommodation was spotless with everything you could ask for. Communication was on point and property was nice and private. Lovely walks straight from your front door . Lovely open area downstairs leaving enough space for all 6 of us to socialise my only negative (if you could call it that) is the 4pm check in, we found it a tad later than other places we have stayed , by the time you settle in and cook / eat and then clean down it was almost time for bed...but apart from that I would still highly recommend !



very clean - new place. Great location



Really nice location!<br/>Beds were comfortable and the shower was powerful. Heating worked great and the kitchen had all essentials for cooking.<br/>Important to note that the garden is not secure as is stated in the listing. If your dog is small it'll be alright but ours could easily jump up and so could go into the neighbouring garden one way but the other way could get out onto the road. If this was improved by fencing up to the stone wall we would happily stay again as everything else was great.



Lovely house, had everything you need for a few days away. It's obviously quite new as everything is in great condition. Location is set in beautiful countryside and the views on the drive up are great when the skies are clear. The only slight downside is that there isn't a TV in the main lounge area with the sofas but this was a minor point as there is one in the front room with some seating. Definitely would stay again.



Set in a remote village, surrounded by beautiful countryside, ideal for a walking holiday. Clean and modern property, dog friendly but unfortunately the back garden is not totally secure.



We loved our stay at Foggyshaw Lodge. We booked the house for a weekend away for my Dad’s 60th birthday, it had plenty of space, the location was lovely with lots of walks & a nice pub right on your doorstep. <br/><br/>The house was really clean & the bedrooms were all a good size & comfy beds. <br/><br/>The tv didn’t appear to be smart as advertised, however this could have been us being unable to work it! And we didn’t really need it in any case. <br/><br/>All in all a lovely stay & would definitely recommend ??



V quiet location, v comfortable. <br/>Lovely spot!



Well off the beaten track in glorious countryside. Difficult to find as the linked directions don’t take you to the house, and the house itself has no name on it. Even the nearby pub didn’t know where it was. Fortunately Host and Stay have an all hours number so at 9pm we got some help. The key box is on the back wall and not visible from the road. It’s a new build. Well appointed and comfy. Kitchen is well stocked with implements. There’s a caravan park literally over the back fence so we had caravans and their noise until late. The outside space isn’t private as the house is semi detached and the fencing between is low. The outside area is small. Great countryside though with easy access to moors. No WiFi although it’s listed as having it. No welcome guide book with helpful hints either. I’ve stayed in many many Airbnb homes- this isn’t a home, it’s a holiday let and feels like that. But it is comfy and clean and in a beautiful area.
