  • "All in all we had an amazing family holiday at Myddleton."

    It's an impressive building providing something for everybody. And we have taken away some amazing family memories, especially for the children. However, there were a number of issues. Firstly the lift needs removing from the property description. Having a severe lung condition this was a big factor in my booking Myddleton. I didn't see anywhere in the details that it was no longer in service. The maintenance contract on the hot tubs is totally inadequate. By Tuesday the water in them looked & smelled disgusting. So I had to contact Hayley (the owner) who arranged to have them emptied and refilled on Wednesday. Meaning from Tuesday morning until Wednesday evening they were out of use to us. I regularly holiday at forest holidays log cabins who maintain their's daily, balancing the chemicals to prevent this problem from happening. The children were excited to use the popcorn machine in the cinema room but it was broken so they were disappointed. I had to get a family member to bring my extra large BBQ through from York because the properties is far too small for the number of people staying, plus it had not been cleaned out. There is also a fault on the alarm system. Three times it went off flagging up a problem in the ground entrance & 1st floor landing. Luckily I had gents with me who were able to turn it off each time, but it needs looking at. We struggled for fridge space. I would suggest replacing the two in the property with two of the bigger American one's. The ground floor super king bed has a large mound down the middle of it making it very uncomfortable. I was also disappointed to see the paved areas front & back were in need of weeding, it looked unkempt. The planters at the back are falling apart and are also a hazard. We had to try bending round the metal band on them as they were sticking out. The bench seating area nearest the dining room had not been swept. It was quite a mess, including a couple of small black canvas bags thrown in the corner. The cleaners need to check inside wardrobes, we found a couple of plastic plates inside one on our arrival. Lastly, we had great difficulty with the ovens. No matter what we tried we could not find that happy medium between under cooking and cremating with the temperature of them. If all the above were rectified, Myddleton would be the perfect large holiday property. Thankyou. Sue..

  • "Property has a lift and should really be serviced & working , Bedrooms could do with long mirrors , bathrooms a place to put shower products ."

    The gym could benefit from some more equipment. Outside the hotubs can't be used if raining so would benefit from a roof / canopy , And hooks for robes etc. Otherwise very decent set up .

  • "Myddleton grange is an absolutely gorgeous venue!"

    It’s so lovely and was the best place for us to host 28 people for a hen party! The finishing touches like a hamper in the kitchen and drinks in the fridge in the bar to welcome us were so thoughtful! The beds were the comfiest things ever which we needed haha! Having the two hot tubs outside to enjoy the view was just the best and so relaxing. I would definitely be coming back here if I have a large group again. Thanks Hayley for keeping in touch and communicating with us throughout.

  • "What a fantastic place!"

    !! In the most beautiful grounds with awesome views. We came for my sons 18th birthday . A mixture of ages, from aged 14 to 74, and all 26 of us had a superb time. The house had everything we needed, hot tubs, cinema room, sauna, bar, downstairs disco room, snooker and pool table. The kitchen was huge with all the cooking equipment you could ever need. All the bedrooms were clean and had a modern feel too, and the beds were so comfortable!!!!! The owners were very welcoming, leaving us a lovely welcome basket full of goodies and beer and wine oh chill, and any concerns we had were dealt with straight away. Everyone is asking when are we going back!! Fully recommend.*****

  • "Wonderful house for a large group."

    Outstanding location with great views and many really good walks from the house. So many things to enjoy at the property. Hot tubs then dinner in the garden with the views followed by sitting round the fire pit and then a film with popcorn in the cinema makes for a great evening. We enjoyed the putting green as well as snooker and pool. Very helpful and friendly contacts with the owners. Highly recommended.

About the location


Bolton Abbey 5 miles; Skipton 9 miles.

The old Spa town of Ilkley is the pivotal town of Wharfedale, undoubtedly the most popular of all the Yorkshire Dales. The area offers some of the most spectacular and unspoilt scenery in the land. For the walker it gives unrivalled tramping ground. High up on the moors next to the white-walled cottage of White Wells (where once donkeys carried gout-ridden gentlemen to be doused in the icy-cold moorland spring) visitors will see a carefully landscaped Victorian scene including two semi-artificial lakes and the river Wharfe meandering through the centre of the town. Ilkley still has a Victorian and Edwardian feel to it. Splendid shops, pubs, restaurants and cafés adorn the tree-lined streets. Bettys, without doubt the finest tea shop in Yorkshire, and therefore the world, is situated on The Grove. Lovely parkland, a choice of open air or indoor swimming pools and a family picnic area providing pleasure for all. It is the starting point of the 84 mile-long 'Dales Way' walk, which is breathtakingly beautiful! Nearby Bolton Abbey is one of the region's most scenic areas and the walk along the river to the 'Strid' is a must. Ilkley Moor is the subject of Yorkshire's unofficial anthem “On Ilkla Moor Baht at”.
