About the hotel

The White Swan Hotel, one of Middleham's most popular and attractive inns, has recently been extended and refurbished. The purchase of the town's old Post Office has enabled owners Paul and Helen Klein to create a 60-cover brasserie and five new bedrooms. The hotel has 17 individually decorated and cosy bedrooms, which are a sensitive and imaginative blend of the old and the new, retaining the traditional charm of this historic inn while incorporating the most up-to-date facilities.

Overlooking the town's picturesque market square and boasting lovely rural views, the White Swan is now a premier town house hotel with superb facilities including free wireless internet for all residents. The area is steeped in history. The castles of Middleham, Richmond and Castle Bolton, all eloquent reminders of Yorkshire’s proud past, are within easy reach, as are Jervaulx and Fountains abbeys. Meanwhile the elegant spa towns of Ripon and Harrogate are only 30 and 45 minutes away respectively by car. Both towns have a splendid array of quality shops. Middleham is home to some of the country’s leading trainers and the racecourses of Catterick, Ripon, Wetherby, Thirsk and York are all within one hour’s drive. Other local activities include fishing on the River Ure, shooting, tennis, golf at Masham, pony-trekking and clay-pigeon shooting. And, for something completely different, the Forbidden Corner at Coverham provides a tantalising journey into the unexpected and unknown. All in all, the White Swan is the perfect base to explore some of Yorkshire’s most breath-taking scenery or simply to relax.

Great Place to Stay

We booked this hotel for a visit to one of the racing yard and picked it because it was in the heart of Middleham and it was a great decision.

The staff were excellent especially Glenn who checked us in and was kept busy all night, but he still found the time to keep us updated about when a table would be available for a meal. The food at the hotel was excellent and a really good choice. The specials all sounded tasty and were popular. Great use of local produce for the Yorkshire breakfast. The room was very good and spacious for the two of us. And we had a stunning view over the Dales. I know people book the hotel for the view of the horses but the Dales view was equally good. We really like this hotel and would definitely recommend it and will be booking there again for our next back to the area.

Family 60th birthday celebration

Took family of 6 adults in three double rooms.

This is a great place right in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales with some great countryside around. Glenn (Manager) was most helpful, took us to our rooms, showed facilities, offered help with bags and details of walks etc in the area. Also assisted with taxi booking. We stay at a lot of chain type hotels which to be fair are often cleaner but impersonal. Here, the hotel has a bit of rustic charm, but also had a true warmth and its the sort of place that you would remember. Food for breakfast was very good. Overall, we all enjoyed our comfortable stay here and would happily recommend it to others.
