The Place to Party




December, we’re either found filling the shop with goodies, tucking into homemade mince pies and mulled wine by the fireside in the snug, grabbing those last-minute gifts or preparing for the celebrations, of course!

We, love everything about Christmas on the estate! From the winter tipples, to wreath making, big knit workshops and seeing the shop brimming with handpicked Christmas gifts:

And then there’s the parties! (hallelujah!) Take your pick from the list below and let us know if you fancy joining us?


Starting with our RAT PACK Party night:

With the swagger of Sinatra and the coolness of Dean Martin, pick up your arrival drink before sitting down for a three-course feast in the Fig House! As the dinner comes to the end, join us on the dancefloor (we like to be the first on and the last ones to leave). The Rat Pack classics will be playing all night, so we can jive, jazz and swing night away. All you need know is that whiskey by the fire (make ours an Old Fashioned).

Then there’s the APRÉS SKI party :

So long to the slopes… Dig out your vintage ski suits, dust off your goggles and get ready for a winter knees up in the Fig House! Just a week before Christmas it’s the perfect excuse to get merry! This party night is anything but chilled, we’ll be serving up a delicious winter BBQ, plenty of cocktails ready for our Resident House DJ to take us back to La Folie Douce! If we’re lucky we may even have a dusting of snow. Say no more, we’ll see you there!

21st DEC– £35 – click here to book


Ok so the parties are planned, get in touch and we’ll put your names on the guest list!

And don’t forget, if you’d like to stay over, just reserve a room with our receptionists and retreat there once the dancing’s over! Wake up the next day, sip on a few Bloody Marys at the Coach House (or a full Yorkshire breakfast) you could even book a treatment! It’s Christmas afterall!



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
