The lavishly furnished cottage has a delightful secluded courtyard garden, which is set on two tiers, also boasts a lovely patio for al fresco dining and a recently constructed summerhouse where you can soak up the sunshine on your break.
The traditional country kitchen features a large range cooker and is equipped with all that you’ll need for family dining. The cosy and comfortable lounge benefits from a beamed ceiling, window seats and an open fire which you can curl up next to and enjoy a glass of wine with some delicious cheese from the nearby Wensleydale Creamery. There is also plenty within the cottage to keep you entertained each evening, with a flat screen TV, DVD player and WiFi included.
The Garden Room is a large separate dining room complete with further comfortable seating and French windows overlooking the rear patio garden. Upstairs the bedrooms have been luxuriously furnished and most feature window seats where you can sit and watch the horses from the stables pass by on their way to the gallops.
This is an ideal property for families or groups of friends looking to holiday together, with pubs, restaurants and shops all within walking distance and the popular market town of Leyburn is only 2 miles away.
"According to Hannah Hauxwell, the renowned hermit of the Pennine dale (who's book you will find on the shelves) a ''gallowa'' is a 15 hand young unbroken stallion, a name we felt rather appropriate to this famous horse training town." Hannah Hauxwell ''daughter of the Dales' 1926-2018.

We loved staying here.
What a fantastic week we have had at Gallowa's Cottage. We love Middleham, it's just the perfect place with everything you need, we've not been far in the car because we haven't needed to, everything you need is on the doorstep. This beautiful little cottage is so full of character and wonderfully cosy. We loved the nooks and crannies. It was a real treat to hear the clip clop of the horses as we had a cuppa in bed. The cottage is beautiful and so well furnished with lots of lovely touches, it's so nice to eat off decent crockery with decent cutlery and there was every kitchen utensil you could need. The beds have been so comfy we haven;'t wanted to get up! Thanks for letting us stay in this very special place and helping us create some family moments together. Gallowa's was just the perfect setting for it all. We loved it and will definitely be back for another dose very soon
What a wonderful time we have had. The cottage is beautiful and the attention to detail second to none. Every possible item in the cottage has been thoughtfully provided. We enjoyed it so much - just like home for home (or even better!). What a fabulous property it is.
What a fabulous cottage. We really enjoyed spending Christmas here with our family. The welcome hamper so kind and we loved the cake especially! You decorated the house with such care and we really appreciate the decorations and tree. Your cottage has everything we wanted and needed. You have made our third Christmas in England a memory to be cherished. From all of us, thank you so much!
Thank you - really lovely cottage in a fabulous location. We could of filled a lot more time than we had. Enjoyed our stay
Had a fantastic week made better by such a wonderful cottage. Lovely and clean and comfortable. Thank you so much
Gallowa's Cottage was an excellent retreat for our family and pet. It has everything you need and the town of Middleham offers plenty to do by just stepping out the door. The property is ideally located for exploring the North Yorkshire Dales.
Gallowa's Cottage was excellent, first class in every aspect and Middleham village was charming, interesting and historic with the added bonus that the racehorses passed our windows regularly and the castle was fascinating. I would strongly recommend.
This was a superb property - in over 35 years of holidays and booking properties all over the country, it is by far and away the best we’ve ever stayed in. It was superbly equipped and had everything we needed. We wish we could have stayed longer, but I have no doubt that we will return for a family holiday again.
“The photos don’t do the beautiful cottage justice. A perfect place to stay near the Yorkshire Dales. A minutes walk to Middleham centre where there are great pubs and places to eat. The cottage is very clean and full of everything you need. Very comfy beds and pillows. Beautiful garden for eating outdoors. Thank you for a great week. ”
Absolutely delightful place to stay and plenty of room especially for 4 teenagers and 2 dogs, beautifully decorated and well equipped for large parties, our welcome pack was wonderful after a long drive. Middleham has a lot to offer as do the surrounding towns without having to trek to far. A trek up Pen Hill is highly recommended with great views, Castle Bolton is well worth a visit as is Aysgarth Falls. Forbidden Corner and Middleham Castle are great for a day out locally
A really great place to stay. Enjoyed it immensely.
A great place and we had great weather, thank you for making us feel so welcome.
Absolutely lovely cottage, very well equipped stayed with our two sons, their wives and two small grandchildren, Grandsons and sons loved the horses, husband very impressed to be next to Mark Johnson's stable, hoping to return in a couple of years when the grandchildren are older.
Absolutely lovely cottage. Very cosy and well equipped. Very good bathrooms and lovely decor to all rooms.
Was exactly as described. Had a wonderful vacation. Loved the horses coming by. Beautiful castle and wonderful walks. Everyone was so very friendly.
Lovely cottage in a great area! Would 100% visit again!
Lovely cottage and would love to go back sometime really enjoyed our stay.
We have had a fabulous week at Gallowa's Cottage! The kids loved the den upstairs with the secret cupboard - great for playing hide and seek. We have enjoyed several barbecues throughout the week in the garden - listening to the church bells - such a relaxing environment. The dogs really appreciated the doggy treats - thank you! And the fruit cake - amazing! So much to do around here - Forbidden Corner, Catterick Races, Hawes, Aysgarth Falls, Brimham Rocks. We have done so much in the four days we were here. We hope to be back!
We've had a lovely family holiday - some travelling from Northumberland and some from Manchester. We have all enjoyed staying in this lovely, well appointed cottage. Even Luna the puppy has had a great time. We all enjoyed the beautiful gardens too and were able to sit out in them. Thanks for all you do to make this such a great cottage to stay in.
An excellent cottage
Coming in through the door was a welcoming and warm beautiful appointed cottage,absolutely super clean ( when we arrived ) and a wonderful hamper to great us too. Plenty of room for the 6 of us, inviting cosy tranquil bedrooms were 6* plus, the bathrobes were a pleasant surprise and most welcome. Every thought had been given to the guests from the kitchen, the outdoor garden, the garden room and the welcome open fire ready made up fro our arrival. The best cottage we have stayed in, ever.
We have had a most wonderful stay in this well equipped beautiful home. We can add nothing but positive comments: wonderful comfy beds, warm and cosy, extremely well kitted out, every home touch thought of. We were able to catch up with family who live locally, had five days of fab walking, taking in both Coverdale and Swaledale without using the car once! Thank you for all the little touches too, the welcome back, the bath robes, the fire set ready to go.
We have just had a perfect weekend in a beautiful and very well equipped cottage. Everything has been thought of, and we could not find fault with anything. Thank you for the welcome pack - the cake was delicious and the dog treats were appreciated by our dog 'Rhino'. Can recommend the food at both Richard third and the Black Swan. The Blue Lion at East Witton is also worth a visit. Sad to be leaving but we will return very soon. Many thanks
Thank you so much for the thoughtful touches you left for our stay at Gallowa’s Cottage, we’ve had an absolutely wonderful break, if we could stay longer we’d love to and we will definitely be back.
Good morning, Jane and Jeremy! I’d like to thank you for allowing us to stay in your beautiful home - it’s a real home from home. I’m sure we’ll have a wonderful week staying here whilst enjoying the plethora of places to visit! It’s a jewel of a place and I’m so glad we found it. We’ll take very good care of what has clearly been created with lots of love. Teresa (Steve McPhee’s partner)
