Making a list & checking it twice…




Our Last minute Gift Guide.

Rather than waiting hours for a parking space, lugging the heaviest of shopping bags through the crowds and grabbing that last bottle of your mother in laws favourite perfume. Why not take it easy and choose those last-minute gifts right here on the estate?

Our Christmas shop at The Coach House is full of gorgeous treasures and trinkets for loved ones, not forgetting that essential treat for yourself. We’ve curated our favourite brands from stationery by Katie Leamon, homewares by Nkuku to our favourite chocs by local chocolatier, Kacao (link all these to their sites).

For those looking for that extra special something, why not gift a loved on with a new skill or craft this Christmas. We’ve collaborated up with a variety of artisans and craftsmen to create an event calendar full of workshops and masterclasses, from ring making, an introduction to ceramics to brush writing. Sounds better than that usual box of chocs doesn’t it?

Take a look at our calendar of events here.

If you’re still not sure what to get, don’t worry we have a solution. Our Middleton Lodge gift cards allows your loved one the gift of choice. Let them choose what to spend their gift on, whether it’s a night away, a Treatment, dinner for two or simply a splurge in our shop. It’s all up to them…

Oh and one last thing, Merry Christmas….



An update from the Estate

We’re delighted to announce, in light of the latest Government guidance that our Coach House restaurant and hotel will re-open on Thursday 3rd December 2020.

From Thursday the Coach House will be serving up a delicious winter walled garden inspired menu for breakfast, lunch, or dinner.

Our stretch tent is still in place for alfresco-dining and we have the heaters and mulled wine at the ready. As the restaurant re-opens, we will no longer be offering takeaway orders Monday to Saturday. And on Sundays you can either join us for your Sunday roast or pre-order and collect your lunch to enjoy at home.

Should you have a hotel reservation from December 3rd, your booking will still be in place and we’re looking forward to welcoming you.

As you can imagine, our phone lines are extremely busy at the moment, which is why we thank you for your patience in advance.
