Woven into the fabric of the Dales

Grand reception rooms meet modern open plan living. Lovely gardens, a library and billiard room. All set in the heart of Wensleydale.

This Georgian country home offers every comfort

Where North Yorkshire’s Dalesmen plough high fields, beneath heather-covered grouse moors and remote farms, sits Middleham Hall, for up to 20 guests. This Georgian period country home offers every comfort. Ten bedrooms come with kingsize or emperor beds, and sheets designed for deep sleep.

Formal drawing, library and billiard rooms come with sumptuous yet comfortable luxury as standard. The vast open kitchen with dining invites hearty eating amid excited family chatter.

Outside, three acres of serene calm separate you from the civilised bustle of the market town. In the evenings, you can walk to the local inn in the time it takes to pull a pint or ice a gin. This is a house as much a part of this Dales town as Richard III’s castle, yet wonderfully apart from it, too.

Middleham has some great pubs, restaurants and shops all in walking distance.  Fishing, shooting, racing, walking are all available close by.  Middleham Hall makes a wonderful venue for a large get-together.

Living Spaces and Bedrooms

Set in three acres of gardens

Middleham Manor is a large, luxurious and very comfortable house, making a perfect home from home.  The large Entrance Hall/Lounge opens through to the Drawing Room, open plan Kitchen with Breakfast/Dining Area, formal Dining Room, a Billiard Room and a children’s Playroom with TV.

There is lots of space for everyone to relax and dine together:  the hall is large; the staircase sweeping; the library, billiard room and drawing room suitably grand. The open kitchen offers chatty dining; a second kitchen comes with handy larder.

Middleham Hall sleeps 20 in great comfort in 10 bedrooms, all well equipped, with 9 bathrooms.  Many of the bedrooms have lovely views over the gardens and grounds.

The house sits in proud seclusion away from the market bustle of Middleham, the jewel of Wensleydale. The three-acre garden is perfect for an evening stroll or for letting kids loose for endless hide and seek. Pubs, restaurants, shops and walks are just a heartbeat away.

"Perfect Birthday House!! Celebrated my 30th Birthday here with 18 of my friends. We hired the recommended caterer Georgina and got some entertainment in and it was absolutely amazing. Such beautiful rooms and views from each bedroom. Hope to be able to do it again sometime!" - Chanelle
We stayed with a large group of old friends, and some new. It couldn’t have been better – a fantastic secluded country house moments from some cracking pubs and all the splendour the Dales have on offer. - Dan
We had a really lovely weekend at Middleham, to celebrate my mum’s 60th birthday. The housekeeper, Joanna, who greeted us, was so friendly and helpful. The house itself is exceptional; the bedrooms are finished to a high standard, with each having its own individual charm. The kitchen is well-equipped and the living areas are impressive – vast, but very cosy. I’m sorry we couldn’t have stayed longer. - Jo
Excellent few days enjoyed by a broad cross section of friends and family. Great facilities and space in and around the house for everyone to do as they wished and gather together for evening meals etc. Easy access to local pubs, shops and surrounding countryside with plenty to see and do. We all really enjoyed it and the staff looking after the property / guests were great. - David
We had such a fun weekend at Middleham – really comfortable and extremely memorable – we will be back………..!!!! - Piers
Thank you for your help organising our holiday at Middleham house. We have just returned and had an amazing week! The house was fantastic - loads of space, well equipped and spotlessly clean. Being able to walk into the village for a drink in a beer garden was an absolute bonus. This is the 17th year we have been holidaying as a group of around 20 and we were all in broad agreement that this was one of the best houses and locations we have visited. I genuinely think that Middleham hit the mark in terms of "friendly luxury" that you reference on the upgraded website. The house was tastefully furnished and the beds were hotel quality but there was no anxiety about the children running free and not causing any damage! If your other properties have the same standard as Middleham I am sure we will find a gem for 2014! Please pass on our thanks to those involved in making the holiday so stress free! - Jackie
We had a really lovely week at Middleham House, in a group of London and Yorkshire friends. It is a very welcoming house with lovely comfortable beds and lots of bathrooms with endless hot water. Beautifully furnished rooms and masses of logs for the fires. Joanna the housekeeper was very welcoming and couldn’t have been more helpful. All in all it was a magical week and we all concluded we would definitely be back. - Tim
