We have just returned from a one night stay in The Priory which was absolutely fantastic. The owners are really welcoming and make you feel at home. The breakfast was really tasty and cooked perfectly. We will definitely return. You need to book well in advance as they are always well booked up.

Attentive, welcoming hosts. The room (Red) overlooks the garden and is large, clean, extremely comfortable and quiet. There is a good breakfast selection and all is well-presented and very tasty. We were only able to stay one night but wished it could have been longer. If you are visiting the area we thoroughly recommend that you stay here - it's...

A luxury B&B in the heart of some of the best countryside the Yorkshire Dales has to offer. We were made to feel very welcome by Chris from the outset. The top floor suite with huge copper bath and views over the Castle was stunning. Breakfast accompanied by the comings and goings of racehorses - not everyday that happens! We...

This was one of the nicest places we have stayed in a very long time. The top floor room with the castle view and the double sized copper bath was perfect for a short romantic break. I cant recommend it enough. The staff and owners were equally as good too and our two choccy labs were made even more welcome...

What a wonderful find and dog friendly too. The staff were so welcoming and the cakes were to die for. Set in the beautiful Middleham village with racehorses passing the door. Lucky our rescue dog was made welcome with a drink and a sausage what more can you ask. The bedrooms were stunning so just need to plan our stay...

Our room overlooked the castle and we had a great view of the racehorses going to/from the gallops every morning. Room very stylish and comfortable with a lovely bathroom. Friendly hosts and nice breakfast. Middleham is a fantastic base for a stay in the Yorkshire Dales

Located within easy reach of Manchester, Leeds, Harrogate and York, 5 race courses and several golf clubs. Nearest train station is Northallerton, and the nearest town is Leyburn (2 miles). Middleham has a local village store and local public houses serving food. The main house has 5 bedrooms, a guest Drawing Room and dining room. There is a walled garden for the use of guests – sit under the apple tree sipping a glass of wine and sharing one of Chris’s special summer BBQs. Drying, Ironing & Laundry facilities available. Well behaved dogs are welcome at the Priory in certain rooms by arrangement at point of booking for a small additional charge. Street parking available, there are no yellow lines in Middleham! The whole of the Priory is also available for house parties – price on application depending on requirements.
