The central part of Myddelton Lodge is believed to date from the mid-16th Century. The former chapel to the western side of the main house was added in 1830, whilst the adjoining (and now separately owned), Myddelton House was also added during the 19th Century. In the ownership of the Myddelton family until the turn of the 20th Century, Myddelton Lodge was sold in 1912 to Mr Sidney Kellett, a woollen merchant from Bradford.

Following Mr Kellett\'s death in 1920 the property was acquired by the Order of Passionist Fathers who used the Lodge as a Religious Retreat. In 1985 the Dicoese of Leeds took charge of the estate and following a brief period of use by the Catholic Church, The Lodge fell into disrepair and was placed on the \"at risk\" register by English Heritage.

At the turn of the new millenium, Myddelton Lodge and the adjoining Myddelton House was acquired by a local family who undertook an award winning and sympathetic restoration.
