About Middlethorpe Hall and SpaJust two miles from York’s vibrant city centre, Middlethorpe offers the best of both worlds, a pretty country house and spa in 20 acres of beautiful gardens.
Luxurious accommodation, a boutique spa and wonderful food are just some of the reasons you could choose to stay at picture-book pretty Middlethorpe Hall, only a stone’s throw from the city centre. Indulge yourself in the calm of the spa and pool, stroll the stunning gardens or eat in the two AA Rosette restaurant.
Sitting in 20 acres of gardens and parkland and built in 1699, Middlethorpe is a William and Mary house that has been lovingly restored to a luxury hotel. The elegantly decorated traditional country house interior is furnished with antiques and paintings, making it feel like you’ve stepped back in time, although the modern touches like the award-winning restaurant, and the boutique modern spa (housed behind the façade of two Edwardian cottages in their own private garden) will convince you that times have moved on.
Outside, the beautiful gardens with a walled garden, rose garden and ha ha are perfect for exploring. Then, less than two miles away, you’ll find historic York is wonderful to enjoy on foot with its medieval streets, the stunning Minster and Yorvik Viking Centre vying for your attention amongst shops, bars and boutiques.
Business guests can also enjoy a stay at Middlethorpe, or just hire self-contained meeting rooms for the day, with the Barlow room, boardroom and syndicate room available, seating up to 56 guests for management away days, meetings, interviews or seminars. There’s all the amenities you could need, including free wifi, a plasma screen, air conditioning and a coffee machine. The beautiful gardens can also be used for break out spaces and team building exercises. You can even celebrate the end of a successful working week with a wine tasting in the unique setting of the 17th Century dovecote.
If you’re thinking about your big day, Middlethorpe provides a truly unforgettable setting for a wedding, civil marriage or partnership ceremony. With timeless interiors and elegant proportions, you can tailor a package to your requirements and budget, with beautiful location options like the dovecote in the walled garden, the more traditional rooms inside the historic hall, or even exclusive hire of the whole house and gardens. It’s not just weddings either, you can also hire Middlethorpe for any special family occasion, like naming ceremonies or anniversary celebrations.
