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,

What a wonderful time we have had. The cottage is beautiful and the attention to detail second to none. Every possible item in the cottage has been thoughtfully provided. We enjoyed it so much - just like home for home (or even better!). What a fabulous property it is.

Mrs H,

What a fabulous cottage. We really enjoyed spending Christmas here with our family. The welcome hamper so kind and we loved the cake especially! You decorated the house with such care and we really appreciate the decorations and tree. Your cottage has everything we wanted and needed. You have made our third Christmas in England a memory to be cherished. From all of us, thank you so much!

Guy Family, F,

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)
