Our short stay breaks appeal to a wide range of people. They offer those requiring care the opportunity to take a break from their usual routine and can provide valuable time off for family carers. It is also the perfect solution for people recuperating from an illness or operation. For others, they simply offer a break from domestic chores and an opportunity to enjoy the spa and facilities. A short stay break is also an ideal chance for those thinking of moving to a retirement home on a permanent basis to experience Middleton Hall for themselves before making a decision.


Guests can choose to stay in an apartment in Middleton Grove or a large guest room in Middleton Gardens. Both have all the comforts of home with the benefits of hotel style services. Short stay breaks are on a full board basis selecting meals from an exclusive menu.

David HoltDavid Holt’s grandchildren have a special name for the place where he comes on holiday three times a year: Grandad’s Hotel. David, who lives in North Yorkshire, enjoys his short stay breaks at Middleton Hall so much he comes back time and time again and receives a warm welcome when he does. Grandchildren Lola and Amber also love visiting him.

“They love it here and call it Grandad’s Hotel,” says David. “Sometimes I come for a weekend and sometimes it’s a week. Either way it’s got everything I need.”

David, 63, finds Middleton Hall’s spa facilities are a huge benefit to him since he suffered a head injury 20 years ago.

David was a flight Sergeant in the RAF regiment when he was a victim of a hit and run accident whilst taking part in a RAF Regiment cycling expedition from RAF Catterick to RAF Gibraltar. The accident happened in Southern France and left him in a coma for several weeks. The head injury left him with speech problems, short term memory and balance problems.

During his stays at Middleton Hall, David lives in one of Middleton Grove’s independent living with support suites. He comes partly for the benefits to his health and goes to the spa every day, taking a swim in the morning and working out in the gym in the afternoon.

He loves to go out on the regular social trips the retirement village organises and when he joins other residents for dinner in the dining hall in the evening, he feels welcomed as a regular visitor.

“It’s like a home-from-home. I catch up with most people in the dining room and I see the same faces. Everyone is friendly. It’s the nature of the place,” he says.

David Holt“The staff are excellent. They try and make life better for everyone here so it’s a great place to be.”

Above all, David’s holidays at Middleton Hall offer a break for his wife Barbara. “She is happy to leave me at Middleton Hall as she knows the staff well and is aware of the high standard of facilities and always leaves knowing I’m receiving the best possible care.”

“It’s a win-win for us both,” he adds. “I’ve got the bonus of coming here and she’s got the bonus of getting some time to herself. It’s also peace of mind knowing I couldn’t get any better care or comfort.”
