Just enjoyed a 2 night stay at The Middleham, Mick and Sheila are very welcoming. We had a great room on the top floor with wonderful sea view, lovely clean room with very comfortable bed, no problem getting to sleep! and a hearty breakfast. Will certainly stay again😊

We originally booked in for a 2 night stay at The Middleham but checked out after only 1 night. The proprietors, Mick & Sheila claim to be friendly and welcoming but this was not the case. Sheila obviously has a problem with an active, happy, caring 5 year old boy. Her face spoke a thousand words, with her constant raised... More

They go out of their way to help you, they meet and greet you on arrival and their friendliness is just wonderful. We have stayed in three different rooms here now and everyone have been spotlessly clean, roomy and... More
