We have been visiting Middleham regularly for around five years due to our love of horse racing and we have always found staying at the White Swan to be a thoroughly enjoyable and extremely comfortable experience which meets all our needs and more.
The hotel is situated right on the main village square which provides convenient car parking; the bistro is wonderfully cosy with delicious food (on our most recent stay we had a lovely tasty potato and leek soup, followed by chicken and mushroom pizza/Wensleydale cheese-topped homemade beef burger with chips); the bar area is traditional with an open fire and the service is always excellent and friendly.
The rooms are a beautiful mix of original features with modern and comfortable facilities, and the Wi-Fi works perfectly.
For fellow racing enthusiasts, the experience of eating a tasty breakfast while a string of racehorses trot past the window on their way up to exercise on the moor is quite amazing; the low moor itself, where the local trainers gallop their horses,is a ten minute walk away and provides a stunningly beautiful environment for an early morning stroll, especially if you get there for sunrise.
As well as the horses, who are housed in various yards around the village, the White Swan is located just a couple of minutes' walk from Middleham Castle with its rich history; locally, Rievaulx Abbey, Aysgarth Falls and the towns of Leyburn, West Witton and Hawes are all within easy reach.
We will be going back to the White Swan many more times and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to anyone visiting this beautiful area.
