Hotel Highlight: Middleton Lodge Estate

I recently discovered Middleton Lodge Estate on Instagram when a friend shared their Valentine's weekend getaway there. The photos immediately captivated me, giving me a sense of relaxation and homeyness that I aspire to feel in my future home. After delving into their tagged photos and learning more about the estate, I have added it to the top of my list of dream, countryside escapes, just barely surpassing Soho Farmhouse (another hotel I'd love to stay at). Whether its spring, summer, winter or fall, Middleton Lodge exudes magic throughout the year.  

Located near Richmond, North Yorkshire, the Allison family lovingly brought this 200 acre privately owned estate back to life. With its charming and elegant atmosphere, this destination offers an ideal setting for a peaceful getaway in the countryside. Food enthusiasts will delight in the estate's sustainable restaurants offering farm-to-table menus that showcase the freshest seasonal ingredients.  Additionally, the Middleton Estate features exclusive event spaces perfect for intimate gatherings or grand weddings. The estate is made up of two award-winning restaurants, a 30-bedroom hotel, two self-catered cottages and two treatment rooms. If you're local to the area they have many options to book a treatment at Forest Spa or swim in the pool and a make reservation at one of their famous restaurants. Take a look and decide for yourself if it deserves a spot on your bucket list and don't forget to check out our lighting picks below for a similar look!

The Main House and Hotel

This is the Main House Family Residence which can be rented out for private events. There are two smaller cottages, Farmhouse and Hope House, which may also be rented out in addition to the 30 rooms in the hotel. In addition to the cottages there are several smaller huts amongst the orchard available as well. View more of the the huts here.

The Coach House

The Coach House is the more laid back and relaxed restaurant.

"Influenced by the seasons and inspired by the kitchen garden, the coach house is a relaxed and rustic restaurant. Recipes are rooted in the estate and served for breakfast, brunch, lunch, and dinner, seven days a week."

I read rave reviews about the brunch and their hot cross buns.

Forge at Middleton Lodge

Forge houses a seasonal and timeless tasting menu created by head chef Jake Jones. Inspired by the seasons and created with the produce grown and foraged from the gardens on property.

Forest Spa

This space located right off of the pool is apart of the Forest spa. I could spend days relaxing here and they have plenty of treatment options to choose from. Check out more of the spa here!

Individual treatment rooms line the property near the spa.
