Review: Middlethorpe Hall, York


An superb nation residence congested with impression and attract welcomes Hannah Talmage for a idle weekend of eating and relaxation.

Middlethorpe Hall sits rather perfectly in 20-acres of parkland – pleasing during this time of year with daffodils hinting that open is only around a corner. The hotel is a integrate of miles outward a ancestral city of York and right subsequent to York racecourse.

This is my kind of nation residence hotel, posh though not bleak and a staff are respectful and efficient, there when we need something and out of steer when we wish to chill out with a cappuccino and a raise of newspapers. The residence is over 300 years aged so design lots of creaky floorboards, antique seat and outrageous welcoming fireplaces.


There’s a good choice of bedrooms to select from possibly in a categorical house, a adjacent yard and even in a desirable lodge down it’s possess private line with a small garden and dual inter-connecting bedrooms that make it ideal for families. All a bedrooms are gentle many with underline fireplaces and several with grand four-poster beds.

A nation residence hotel weekend wouldn’t be finish but a sauna and Middlethorope Hall doesn’t disappoint. Indulge yourself with an afternoon enjoying indoor swimming pool, spin sauna bath, steam room, sauna and gymnasium. Book a diagnosis or two, my recommendation is a Decleor Orange Blossom Garden Ritual (£74) an extraordinary physique massage regulating rarely scented orange freshness elixir that smells extraordinary and leaves your skin feeling supersoft and moisturised.

Afternoon tea is something of a tradition during Middlethorpe so make certain we get in a prolonged travel after lunch and you’ll have room for a piles of finger sandwiches, scones, biscuits and cakes served with pots of Taylors of Harrogate root teas. £22.50 per chairman or £32.50 with Champagne.


Dinner is in a able hands of conduct cook Ashley Binder and his group who suffer formulating their dishes from a best of locally sourced produce. My recommendation is to opt for a six-course tasting menu, £69 per chairman or £99 with relating wines.

The scallops with a drizzle of satay and a loin of venison were tasty and a dual puddings, chocolate mousse with orange ice-cream and a scrummy poached rhubarb with white chocolate sent me off to bed with a large grin on my face. There’s also a good value anniversary menu with dual courses for £35 if we overindulged with that afternoon tea.
