Galloping into contention in the heart of a popular racing town serving up a full suite of historical and sporting connections is Gallowa’s Cottage. Quintessentially cosy and characterful, the odds are on and the going is easy.

Front runner

Sympathetic to its history and to its location, Gallowa’s Cottage has been superbly refurbished for guests visiting Middleham and this part of the Yorkshire Dales. This is Yorkshire’s horse racing country and the horse racing references in the cottage abound for those who know the sport yet are subtle enough not to bother those who don’t.

You’ll want to sink into the sitting room sofa and curl up in front of the Victorian fireplace while the kettle boils or the Wensleydale and wine ease you into an evening of quiet time. The country cottage style kitchen has all you’ll need to rustle up a delicious supper if the call of the town’s friendly pubs don’t call you first. The window seats in each of the bedrooms draw you to gaze upon the town from a bird’s eye view. Imagine life in this bustling market town in times gone by, then and now you can watch the horses head between stables and gallops on a daily basis.

Into the pretty courtyard garden and you’ll find the hot tub for soaking away a day’s efforts in the Dales and a new summerhouse for a peaceful afternoon in the sunshine or an idyllic breakfast spot. A pet friendly property, the cottage welcomes three furry friends to explore the countryside with you too.

A history of horse race training and Grand National winners aside, this pretty market town also has connections to Richard III and the town’s imposing castle put it on the regal map many moons ago. There’s really no shortage of sites and experiences before you even consider pulling up your socks and wandering off in your walking boots.

Bedrooms and bathrooms

Don’t be deceived by the cosy cottage vibes of Gallowa’s Cottage, it is superbly spacious presenting four beautiful bedrooms over two floors, sleeping seven guests. On the first floor is the king size master suite with en suite bathroom, a second spacious bedroom that you can have as either a super king or as twin beds, and a single bedrooms with another of those window seats. The second floor completes the sleeping arrangements with a comfortable twin.


If you want to get straight into that holiday spirit, why not order a welcome hamper or prepared meals from local cafe bar and restaurants, Penley's. Situated in the market place in Richmond and Leyburn, Penley's offer a friendly and relaxed service with an excellent variety of freshly prepared food cooked to order using locally sourced produce where possible. They now provide a great range of prepared meals, hampers and picnics which can be delivered to your holiday cottage for your arrival or collected from the cafe. For more information and to place your order see Penleys website.


A lovely property.

Gaby J,

We loved staying here.

Daniel B,

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

Previous Customer,

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)
