Leyburn Manor

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. .

At Oliver’s Travels we pride ourselves on going that little bit further for our guests. From private chefs to babysitters we can help you arrange those little extras that make it a truly memorable holiday. Simply fill in the concierge request form or contact the Oliver’s Concierge Team who will be happy to help. We can typically help you arrange any of the following:

- House keeper
- Gardener
- A private cook, babysitter, taxi service, massage and beauty treatments can be arranged.

The housekeeper will greet guests on arrival and help settle them into Middleham Hall, answering any queries and giving advise on local amenities. The house will provide leaflets for local attractions and restaurants together with books and walking maps of the area.

Please note that all extras are subject to availability and must be requested in advance of the holiday (prices on request). Due to some rural/remote locations, not all services will be available at all properties. However, we will always do our best to fulfil your requests!
