Middleton-in-Teesdale UK

Middleton-in-Teesdale is a small market town near Barnard Castle in County Durham. It is nestled in the north of the Yorkshire Dales in one of England’s most isolated but truly stunning areas. Middleton is surrounded by dramatic, rolling countryside and is an ideal location for visiting walkers with its patchwork of public footpaths, including the Pennine Way.

The town is situated in a large valley, which was carved out of the rock by a glacier during the last ice-age. The valley supports many rare plant and flower species which are sustained by the minerals in the bedrock exposed by the glacier. Much of the nearby countryside is recognised officially as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and it offers spectacular views and High Force, one of the largest waterfalls in England is found a few miles away.
The delightful town with its market square, pubs, stone cottages and small independent shops is full of original character. There is plenty to see and do in the area with several visitor attractions including Bowlees Visitor Centre and the spectacular Bowes Museum about a mile from Middleton at Barnard Castle.
