    Fabulous little hideaway, unfortunately the weather was not very kind so couldn't make the most of the area. We're sure that in summer it would be even better. Only 1 mark lost due to a lack of thought over placement of mirrors which were nowhere near plug sockets making it difficult to dry hair etc. Otherwise no complaints at all. Rodger and Hilary were lovely as was their dog Blake who greeted us enthusiastically. Will definitely return in the summer.

    Had a lovely week in this clean, well equipped and comfortable cottage. Very friendly owners and set in a village with a good selection of pubs and tearooms. Walks in the dales straight from the front door. Would highly recommend.

    This is a wonderful little gem of a cottage, with the most hospitable of property owners. The compact circularity of the design is quirky but enjoyable, and it combines privacy with a completely restful location. There is so much to do in the area... if you like walking, history, historic houses, and fine dining then this is a perfect base (two wonderful restaurants in Leyburn two miles up the road - and the food in Middleham itself is decent enough).. We were here for a week, and left with plenty more to do, hopefully for another time. Highly recommended! (NB for those with mobility issues, there are a few steps on the way to the property from the parking)

    Fantastic cottage, beautifully presented, and clean. Very helpful owners. Just 2 mins walk in to Middleham, a very nice village. Cannot recommend Poppys Footprint highly enough.

    A lovely base from which to explore the length and breadth of the Yorkshire Dales. The owners' are very friendly and helpful and there is a good list of places to eat out. Above all it is a very peaceful and relaxing spot with only the sounds of nature to enjoy. If you get up early enough yo will see the racehorses processing down the high street to their morning's exercise.

    I had a wonderful holiday at Poppy’s Footprint. It’s a lovely, cosy little cottage in a beautiful area of the country. The owners have provided everything you might need and are on hand should you need anything further. I’ll definitely be going back
