Partying through the generations

Make a party out of bringing family and friends together in rural Yorkshire, with high art on the walls. Splash around in the hot tubs, catch a movie by log-light in the snug and cook up a storm on the toasty Aga. Northridge Hall with its extra wing is party-perfect.

Party-perfect Yorkshire manor

Northridge Hall recalls days when staff appeared at the ring of a bell. It’s a grand Yorkshire manor house set in half an acre of rolling Yorkshire parklands. This is a place to get together with friends and family and party the weekend away in the lap of luxury or in the warm embrace of the bubbling hot tubs.

This is elevated living: ceilings are high, décor is grand, original features abound. There’s a big dose of culture, too, in the wall art, a collaboration with sponsored students from Cheltenham University’s Fine Art department. Donated pieces bring rooms to life with their vivid colour and creative flair.

There are fun and games to be had in the stable. Take on your peers at ping-pong or table football, but take a towel because the two seven-seat hot tubs are too good to resist. Break out a bottle and put the world to rights awhile. Dry off and head to the drawing room or log-lit snug for some big-screen movies or a match.

Northridge Hall is great for parties, but it’s great for families, too. Cook up a storm on the four-oven Aga, or let our experts take over while you pour the drinks. Eat en-masse around the chunky dining table or al-fresco on the terrace in the pure North-country air while the kids find the playhouse. We think you’ve already found yours.

Hot tub, gardens and grounds

A half-acre of prime parkland sprawls before you, perfect for a pre-prandial stroll or for wearing the kids out. Out there in the walled garden, there’s swings and a playhouse, and a ball to kick into the open goal. In summer, there’s cricket and croquet or just Pimm’s and a paperback.

Head to the stable for more toys. Take a bottle and glasses to clink because two bubbling seven-seat hot tubs await. Dry off and get competitive around the pool table, the table tennis or table football.

On the terrace, table and chairs await al-fresco dining in the rural air. Sizzle your sausages on the gas barbie as the kids race across the lawn and rediscover the lost joys of vitamin D.

If you’re here in winter, note that Northridge Hall is part of the Ledston Estate. That means shoots from October to February that you’ll hear from the house. Of course, for you, gunshot and the flap of a falling bird could just add to the authentic country feel of the manor. It’s your call.

Living spaces

The ceilings are sky-high and the cultural feel even higher, with artwork splashed across the walls from Cheltenham art students sponsored by us on a three-week placement at The British School in Rome. Many, such as Betty Harrison, Lily Musker and Cheryl Brooks, have gone on to great renown.

There’s a piece of fine art donated for each student year. Track them down and let a little culture elevate your spirit further.

In the living room, stoke the fire beneath the marble mantle and make yourself at home. There’s space here to make merry or just chillax with a drink and a book. Monster sofas were made for cards or charades.

To catch a movie, head to the drawing room or to the snug to get a fire going as you hunker down in front of the 58-inch TV or tap into the fast satellite broadband.

Cooking and dining

If you don’t want to get down and dirty with the four-oven Aga, you can always use it as a heater while we ship the experts in. Say the word and Friends 4 Dinner will rustle up buffets, breakfasts or formal dinners, and even load the dishwashers afterwards. Takeaways? Try Fuller Chinese or Caesar’s Indian.

Eat around the chunky hunk of a dining table underneath the chandelier and in front of exquisite artwork from students we’ve sponsored. Get a couple of dozen together, break the bread, pour the wine and get the party started. Alternatively, if you like your pork pulled and your meat smoked, the gas barbie awaits.

Eating out? Take your pick from French, Italian, Chinese, Vietnamese, Lebanese and more in cosmopolitan Leeds and upmarket York. A five-minute walk brings you to the Chequers’ cosy alcoves, for pan-fried salmon or pheasant. The White Horse in Ledston and the Queen o’t’old Thatch in South Milford are five minutes by car.

There’s Italian, complete with mood lighting and a curved bar at La Belle Vita in Garforth. Try authentic Indian at The Thaal in Bretherton, Saffron in Sherburn-in-Elmet, or Aagrah in Garforth, go gastro at trendy The Licorist, or head to Thorpe Park for cocktails on the terrace and dinner by the fire.


Northridge Hall redefines deep sleep. In the main house, six sprawling bedrooms come with giant windows, superking beds and tons of original features. In the wing, a further three bedroom plus a sofa bed in the lounge make the place ripe for a guestfest of up to two dozen.

The en-suite master bedroom comes with superking bed and walk-in shower. There’s a freestanding bath with piping water from which you might never emerge. Bedroom two is a superking double or two zip-and-link singles. Bedroom three and four offer the same, plus en-suite with walk-in shower.

Family-flexible bedroom five sleeps four in a superking or zip-and-link, plus two singles, while bedroom six is another superking with zip-and-link option. Bedrooms one to five will take an extra bed, and a couple of roaming zed-beds add to the flexibility.

In the wing, bedroom seven is a superking with optional zedbed, while bedrooms eight and nine are superkings with zip-and-link options. A small lounge comes with a double sofa bed. The wing bedrooms share a bathroom, which comes complete with an electric shower over the bath.

"We had a fantastic time at Northridge Hall. The house is beautifully decorated and feels very homely. We had everything we needed. I would definitely return." - Fleur
"The whole experience was absolutely fantastic. The booking process was very easy and the staff were really helpful on the lead up to our stay. Louise couldn’t have been more helpful on our arrival, showing us around, offering advice on the area and keeping in touch to make sure everything was ok throughout our stay without being intrusive. The house itself is amazing, it’s huge but still feels homely. We had 21 adults and there was plenty of space. It is very well equipped and the photos really don’t do it justice. The gardens are vast and in the summer must be beautiful. We would highly recommend Northridge Hall." - Martin

"Had a great time at Northridge Hall. The property was presented really well, with lovely furnishings and felt like a home from home, very different to a lot of usual rentals. We expected the photos to be better than reality, but it was the other way round! The housekeeper was lovely and had gone to extra lengths to make our arrival seamless and welcoming. The fresh bread, eggs, jam, coffee and milk were a treat - as was the Molton Brown in all of the bathrooms. Kate & Toms were really easy to deal with from the first enquiry and helping us to actually find the property, through to booking, answering questions, providing instructions for arrival and returning the deposit in a timely manner and without questions. Will definitely be back." - Jessica
"We recently booked Northridge Hall for a hen party and had the most incredible weekend. It was the perfect setting!" - Alicia
"Wonderful holiday at Northridge Hall in Ledsham. The house was perfect for our family gathering, the first one since the start of lockdown! We all loved it, plenty for children to amuse themselves and grown ups to relax. Loved the outdoor space and games. We are all hoping to arrange another staycation with kate & tom’s. - Susan
"We recently celebrated our 50th wedding anniversary here. The celebration was a year late but it was the first time we could get all our family together, including those from Australia. We could not have asked for a better location. The housekeeper was friendly and efficient and the accommodation was ideal for our family. The walled garden provided ample space for all our games such as cricket, rounders, badminton, soft tennis, egg and spoon races and many more. Well done to all involved in making this a memorable event. We would not hesitate in recommending it for similar events." - Miles
