Access Statement


Middlemoor House is an Edwardian farmhouse, located on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales National Park. It is 5 minute drive or a 45 minute walk from Richmond town centre. Walks in the vicinity will lead you up to Hudswell Village, where you can find the George and the Dragon, a pub that is popular with tourists and locals alike.
Middlemoor House has been recently refurbished to a high standard and has 4 bedrooms: 3 double and 1 twin/double, all with king size beds and private en-suite shower rooms. The largest of the double rooms also includes a slipper-style bath.
All of our rooms are on the 1st floor, and because of the age of the property and some period features, access may be difficult for people with limited mobility.
We look forward to your visit. If you have any queries or require any assistance, please phone 01748 519 417 or email
