Escape to Middlethorpe Hall for a Champagne Weekend

This promotion celebrating 20 years as an hotel, sounded interesting, 
so we've passed it on...

Middlethorpe Hall is a William and Mary country house, built in 1699 of mellow red brick with limestone dressings, for Thomas Barlow, a master cutler from Sheffield. It was bought in the 1980s and reopened as a luxury hotel, Restaurant and Spa in 1984, rescued from decay, caringly and lovingly restored by Historic House Hotels.

The restoration, conservation and conversion into a country house hotel has been carried out to exacting and historically accurate standards. It has been elegantly decorated in the manner of the 18th Century and furnished with antiques and fine paintings, so that its look and ambiance is that of a well-kept, well-furnished private manor house rather than a 29 bedroom Hotel (ten rooms and suites in the house, nineteen in the adjacent 18th Century courtyard)

The 20 acres of manicured gardens and parkland which surround Middlethorpe Hall are also the result of a transformation - from a rose bed and nettles to a parterre that now includes a fragrant rose garden, intriguing walled garden and romantic meadow which leads to a lake surrounded by beautiful specimen trees. There is also a ha’ha separating the lawns from the park.

Middlethorpe Hall is renowned for its imaginative cuisine (awarded three rosettes by the AA) and its panelled dining rooms which overlook the manicured gardens. It also boasts a Spa built behind the handsome façade of two listed Edwardian cottages. This offers guests a range of facilities from Clarins, Molton Brown and E’SPA treatments with trained therapists to a splendid swimming pool and sauna.

To celebrate 20 years of excellence, Middlethorpe Hall is offering a tempting two-night Champagne package, which includes, early morning tea, full English breakfast, three-course dinner use of the Spa, service and VAT and a welcoming bottle of Champagne from £120.00 per person per night!

Middlethorpe Hall, like its sister hotels Hartwell House in Aylesbury and Bodysgallen Hall near Llandudno, has achieved a graceful transition from country house to first-class hotel without losing its character. Indeed, Historic House Hotels are now the yardstick by which others must be judged.

Join us soon in celebrating our 20 jubilant years.
