WELCOME TO THE PRIORY

A BOUTIQUE GUEST HOUSE IN THE HEART OF THE YORKSHIRE DALES

A small request
Please help small businesses by booking direct.  We will always match any deals that you see on the internet.  In challenging times the significant commissions charged by online travel agents really do add up.  Thank you and thank you to all who have purchased vouchers for a future stay during these strange times

The Priory with 5 bedrooms and the self catering Coach House which can accommodate up to 8 guests sits opposite the magnificent Middleham Castle.  Why not take over all the rooms in the Priory for your own private house party – with caterers brought in for your evening meals? We are dog friendly too.

Middleham is famous for its hundreds of race horses and the castle. We have 4 pubs/restaurants, an antique shop, tea room and a general store. 

Chris and Sarah have spent the last few years bringing this handsome building back to life.  With our love and passion for wanting to create an experience you won’t forget – decorated with a quirky mix of antiques and contemporary pieces providing luxury in a historic building. Can you spot Sarah’s sheep  and chandelier obsession!

Indulge in a luxurious bath filled with bubbles – we have traditional roll top or sparkly copper baths in three of our rooms combined with large power showers.  We have exceptionally comfortable beds with crisp white bed linen, fluffy towels and bathrobes. Many a guest has not wanted to get up in the morning with the beds being described as being like a marshmallow. 

Come and stay for a romantic break, a special anniversary or birthday.  Spend your day walking in the beautiful Yorkshire Dales, a romantic picnic by the river,  exploring the nearby attractions or have a dabble at one of the many race courses. 

We have a beautiful garden and a large guest drawing room offering space to spread out and relax – enjoy the view of the castle or folly walled garden, pick up a book from the bookcase and in the cooler months curl up in front of the fire.

Breakfast is not to be rushed – served at a time to suit you.  Chris has perfected his full English, using locally produced yummy ingredients .  Special vegetarian and dietary options available too.

Sarah, Chris and the team are here to help you with everything you need and look forward to welcoming you.
