Middleham has three great features,  its connection with King Richard the Third, its magnificent Castle
and its horse-racing industry.
The business of training  racehorses has gone on in Middleham for over 200 years now and winners have been produced at every event in the British racing calendar including the Derby and Grand National. There are some fourteen trainers today in the Middleham area for both Flat and National Hunt and strings of racehorses can be seen passing through the town in the early morning on their way to the grass and all-weather gallops on the High and Low Moors above Middleham
Situated in lovely Wensleydale  Middleham is steeped in history, its magnificent castle ruins tower over
clusters of old grey stone cottages, fine old Georgian and Victorian houses and has two cobbled market squares.. 
Middleham is an excellent base for reaching the variety of interesting places on offer in the vicinity all year round. 
For the walker, cyclist or bird watcher, we are surrounded by the most stunning countryside,
with moors, dales and rivers and an abundance of fauna and flora....
