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.


We enjoyed a fabulous week away in this delightful cottage, with courtyard garden. As described and catered well for the whole family to enjoy space and facilities, including our dog. Equipped to a very high standard, with plenty of supplies and local information, maps etc. Lots of local walking to accommodate the dog and for those who enjoy horses recommend the tour of johnstons yard. Local shop, pubs and chippy also recommended, along with great local hospitality.

Mrs K,

A very comfortable house with good quality decoration. The kitchen is particularly well equipped and we had everything we needed to cook a range of recipes. The whole place felt like a proper home with nothing lacking. Thank you for a lovely stay.

Mrs L,

I left a glowing review in the guest book and I felt it was so well deserved. So much thought has gone into making this a comfortable and welcoming cottage. There are also many practical elements too that make it such a home from home experience. The location was amazing. So lovely to have horses passing by every day- such a difference to the regular life. We would definitely recommend Gallowa’s Cottage.

Mrs G,

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)
