Set in the glorious 200-acre estate of Middleton Lodge in North Yorkshire, the Farmhouse is a characterful little building with only five bedrooms inside. Cosy and modern in design, you’ll find a plush hotel vibe and plenty of quirky original features making you feel at home in no time. The Coach House is a beautiful, much larger converted building with stylish interiors and roll-top baths tucked away in beautiful bedrooms.
When you’re not relaxing indoors, explore the splendid Middleton Lodge estate with its woodland walk, or why not hire one of the hotel’s vintage bicycles. Elsewhere on the estate, you’ll find treatment rooms situated in the nearby Coach House, with its flower- and herb-filled courtyard gardens.
Throw yourself into the many country pursuits on offer – a stroll through the woods, or a spot of clay shooting. After a walk around the country estate, you’ll have a good appetite for The Coach House Restaurant’s modern British dishes, which are inspired by the Yorkshire countryside, with real ales and carefully crafted cocktails in the snug hotel bar.
How to Get There
Just love this place. This was our second stay here, the last time was a wedding in December 2018 which was one of the best we have ever attended. We stayed in the Farm House which was very comfortable with a not so large room but with a bathroom about the same size which more than compensated! Whoever has chosen the fittings and furniture of this hotel has amazing taste and has created a totally relaxing ambience to the place. It seemed to us that the owners and the staff had one overriding objective, perfection in all things to do with this property and they have gone an incredibly long way in achieving this. We stayed for just one night but enjoyed a wonderful dinner and a superb breakfast with the best American style pancakes this side of the Atlantic and I speak from wide experience! In the Farm House not only is there a coffee maker in the room but there is tea and coffee in the kitchen in the shared area with ample milk in the fridge. There was another wedding in full swing while we were there but because the grounds are so extensive this never impacted on our stay. In fact the place was actually full when we were there but at no time did we feel that the hotel was crowded, there is plenty of space for everyone. Must make special mention of Emma who looked after us so well in the restaurant, thanks for making our stay seem so special Emma! Some other Trip advisers have commented on how expensive this place is but we found that, sure you paid a lot but it was good value for money...reassuringly expensive as the lager advert says.
Stayed recently and as a wheelchair user felt totally restricted! Gravel drives everywhere, a cellar with no access and a big house with no ramp to the front door! Not a member of staff offering a ramp either. Disabled toilet with a step down to it! Not sure how they can say wheelchair accessible. Rooms fine in coach house but that’s it. They have a reception desk that’s so high they done even see you as a wheelchair user ! You pay for the grounds that you can’t access easily! I would suggest that the owners think about how they can improve access for all!
I went to Middleton Lodge with my family to take part in a small photo shoot. The grounds were absolutely stunning and the interior was flawless. We also had some food at the restaurant which was very tasty albeit expensive. I would recommend for a visit but be prepared it can be costly.
