Out With The Old And In With The New

Have you heard the news? Our Coach House menu is changing and we’re super excited for you to come taste it…

On Friday 25th May, The Coach House restaurant will be serving a laid back menu available morning, noon and night. The new all-day menu is super relaxed, ideal for midweek supper or a weekend celebration.

Our 2 acre Kitchen Garden is filled with fresh produce, estate owners James and Rebecca have been busy working alongside our chefs creating dishes which utilise the freshly grown ingredients from the garden, with a Mediterranean influence.

Diners can expect a range of yummy seafood dishes, a handpicked steak selection, offering rich, tender steaks (hooray!) and even fresh Mediterranean country garden salads, think baked beetroot, fresh mint dressings, heritage tomatoes and lashings of balsamic.

When it comes to dinner time, we’d arrive and order a garden cocktail, or a gin infused with rosemary. Pitch a comfy spot in the sun and choose a mix of small plates, our favourites are smoked salmon, pickled cucumber and grilled langoustines.

If you’re looking for a filling feast you can choose from freshly made pastas, flat iron chicken, or of course, chargrilled steaks. Oh, and make sure you order plenty of sides (there’s lots to choose from).

Get your pencils out now and scribble Friday 25th May in your diary, maybe even block off the whole day? Spend the day just relaxing at The Coach House, we’ve created plenty of cosy spots for all of you.

Working from home? Rather than letting cabin fever get out of hand, swing by and work from here.

Right the we’re off for French toast with pistachios rhubarb, and a Longtons flat white.

Fancy popping by? Walks in are welcome but feel free to book your favourite table on 01325 377977 or email

P.s If you like to experience refined, skilled intricate dishes our new venture will be coming this Autumn, we’ll say no more. Follow the link below to sign up to be the first to know… http://middletonlodge.co.uk/the-forge-restaurant

An update from the Estate

Dear Friends & Family,
As part of our staged reopening on Thursday 23rd July, Middleton Lodge Estate will be implementing “contactless stays” in line with government social distancing guidelines.


It is looking absolutely beautiful here at the moment, and it’s a shame that we can’t allow you here yet - but by July it promises to be even better. We have space, we have fresh air, and sky, we have great food, the gardens are teaming with produce, we have gorgeous bedrooms to rest your weary heads in. We will be opening our restaurant (for residents only) at a safe distance - al fresco fine dining in a sprawling setting.


What is a contactless stay?

We have spent a lot of time thinking about how we can do this. Luckily one thing we have here in abundance is space - most of our bedrooms have their own private entrances straight into the gardens, so nobody will have to have to walk through communal areas.

Guests will be guided remotely through booking and check in prior to arrival. On arrival, all guests will have a temperature check at the new gatehouse, and be directed via a map to their private rooms. Each has it’s own private entrance and views of the gardens or parkland setting. Unwind in one of our fabulous roll top baths, with signature Noble Isle amenities proudly made in the British Isles. Order dinner in your room, or head over to our stretch tent in the Coach House courtyard for alfresco estate to plate at a distance. You might not see much of our staff, but rest assured they will be there, and available to help with anything that you might need.

If that’s not enough to tempt you, upgrades are available for rooms with hot tubs and wood burning stoves…

The great outdoors remains firmly open, and guests will have access to a selection of walking routes around the 200 acre estate and beyond. We also have our utterly beautiful Walled Gardens to explore (and are begging to be painted for any creative types - don’t forget your watercolours and easel!)

Click here to book now or you can buy as a voucher for a loved one to redeem later.


Our Mission

The Covid-19 outbreak continues to be a testing time for everyone, and we are delighted to be able to invite people back to our estate to share our beautiful Yorkshire countryside at a safe distance. The safety of all our staff and guests is paramount, and we are doing everything we can to ensure that people can come and feel safe and relaxed here.


Gift Vouchers

If you know someone who needs to get away from it all we do have vouchers available. You can boost the experience with dinner for two or a bottle of something delicious on arrival. Look out for special offers too on longer stays.


As always, Middleton Lodge Estate adheres to strict hygiene and safety guidelines. In addition to these we are taking extra precautions to limit interaction between staff and guests. We are also boosting deep cleaning practices. Though out of sight, the team will be available to assist guests with anything they might need during their stay via our new messaging service.

It should go without saying, but we do ask that any guests with any symptoms that could be attributable to Covid-19, or who may have been recently exposed to not come to the Estate. We also ask that you follow government guidelines for social distancing while you are here.

Thank you for your support during this difficult time, we have been so heartened with so many lovely messages from you all! We can’t wait to welcome you back.

Please take care and stay safe.

The Allison Family and Middleton Lodge Team x
