Like a miniature “Downton Abbey”, this 18th century manor in Yorkshire infuses a sense of grandeur into everyday life. Stately, spacious rooms - furnished with antiques and the finest linens - invite you to enjoy a heightened country lifestyle. You’ll be greeted by the housekeeper, who will help you settle in and decide which sights to see (besides the 3 acres of beautiful gardens).

This holiday manor features endless spaces for entertaining. The traditional dining room has space for 18 to feast, while a fireplace and family portraits look on. Have a friendly game in the billiards room, flooded with light from tall windows and the roof lantern above, or enjoy tea in the traditional drawing room, where arched windows look out on the gardens beyond. You'll feel like royalty in the bedrooms, featuring Super king and Emperor-size beds, feather pillows, and plush, high-quality bedding.

The nearest town is Middleham, a settlement that has existed since Roman times, and now houses your local pub just 1 km away. The eponymous castle is well worth a visit - a striking roofless ruin set in flawless farmland. Dales National Park is nearby, a 15 minute drive will take you to Aysgarth Falls. .

    The house is a charming, 18th century Georgian manor set on 3 acres of private walled garden and situated in the heart of picturesque Middleham.

    Middleham was once known as ‘the Windsor of the North’ because of the frequent visits of monarchs and nobles to Middleham Castle. It was also home to Richard III in 1471. It is a picturesque dale village with its own Castle, parish church, and charming market square surrounded by local pubs, restaurants, shops, rivers and the most stunning landscape in the country.

    The village today derives much of its prosperity from the breeding and training of racehorses, and there are many well known racing stables in and around the town.

    Location
    - On the doorstep are dales, heather covered moors, rivers, waterfalls and picturesque dale villages.
    - Local restaurants and pubs are close by.

    • Birthday celebration!

      Posted by Susan on 23/06/2018

      A family group of 18 met for a 90th birthday celebration at Leyburn Manor. We had a lovely time, the house is right in the centre of town so there are pubs and restaurants nearby if you want to eat out, but equally if you want to eat in there is a well stocked kitchen with a large dining area. We loved the charm of the place and its charm enhanced our family celebration.

    • Team event...

      Posted by Richard on 29/11/2017

      A team of us booked Leyburn Manor for a couple of nights, whilst grouse shooting. It met our requirements exactly, the house is warm and spacious, all the rooms bar one have bath rooms, and the kitchen is large and has everything you need. The décor is functional, rather than grand. Everything was clean and tidy.

    • A very happy stay!

      Posted by Sylvia on 24/04/2017

      I stayed at Leyburn Manor at Easter with the whole family {minus two of the boys who were travelling] so we were 18 in total. We were celebrating my son's 50th birthday and our big party on Easter Saturday was catered by Georgina Anderson really beautifully .She produced some wonderful food for us during our stay. It was a very comfortable house and we had a very happy stay. The walks in the Dales were amazing and led by my son we tramped over many miles of wonderful country with breathtaking views, It will be a hard act to follow for the next 50th !

    • 80th Birthday Weekend...

      Posted by Jane on 28/10/2016

      An amazing place to stay we couldn't have found a more welcoming, impressive venue for my father's 80th birthday celebration.
      Leyburn Manor truly felt like a home, albeit a very grand one! Thanks to the lovely housekeeper Kim, we soon settled in to enjoy everything it had to offer. With ages ranging from 3 years old, through teenagers, middleagers to oldies this was the perfect setting for a party that everyone could enjoy.
      We would definitely recommend Leyburn Manor and hope to be back for our family's next milestone celebrations!

    • 50th Birthday Celebrations...

      Posted by Helen on 18/06/2016

      We booked Leyburn Manor to celebrate my 50th Birthday with a group of friends. We did just that ! there was tonnes of space for us all to relax, dance , laugh, sing ! Bedrooms are huge, bathrooms are all quirky, ample hot water for everyone, the house was warm and welcoming. We could not have chosen a better spot to celebrate!

    • Family get-together!

      Posted by Sue on 18/02/2016

      We booked Leyburn Manor for three nights including Valentine's Day. The idea was for our children and grand-children to get together all under one roof. We arrived first and were absolutely blown away with everything we saw. I couldn't wait for the rest of the family to arrive. I can still hear their gasps of "wow" and see the looks of wonder on their faces. There were seven children ranging from two to eleven years. Nine year old Jack made straight for the snooker room - he loved it. This was also popular with the adults. The younger children enjoyed the freedom of space and needed very little in the way of any other entertainment.
      Wonderfully comfortable beds set in huge bedrooms with ample spacious, interesting bathrooms. All nineteen of us sat round the dining table for Sunday dinner. Cooking together in the well equipped kitchen was fun. I loved the house so much I could have spent all my time in it. We did, however walk to Leyburn and two families explored the castle and the children played in the house's garden. A beautiful house in a lovely part of Yorkshire.

    • Fun filled & relaxing days

      Posted by Julian, August 2011 on 29/11/2011

      Both with and without our kids we have had the most fun filled and relaxing stays at Middleham. You simply cannot beat a 1 minute walk to a choice of pubs, a welcoming restaurant just outside the gates of the huge garden, full size snooker table, seriously proper castle (kids love it) and a river walk so beautiful that it takes the breath away (even if you don't go for the swim).There's a shop that sells everything you need opposite one of the pubs. You can hunker down or get out and about - take your pick. Idyllic.
