About Middlethorpe Hall and SpaMiddlethorpe Hall & Spa was built in 1699 for Thomas Barlow, a master cutler from Sheffield. It re-opened as a luxury hotel in 1984.
Middlethorpe Hall was once occupied by the 18th-century bluestocking and diarist, Lady Mary Wortley Montagu, who declared it a ‘very pretty place’.
Today the Hall offers guests a stay in a William and Mary house that has been lovingly restored. Guests can enjoy wandering around the 20 acres of garden and parkland that surround the house, which feature fragrant rose gardens and a ha-ha.
The interior has been elegantly decorated in the manner of the 18th century and furnished with antiques and fine paintings so it feels much more like a stay in a manor house than a hotel. Adjacent to the Hall is a sympathetically restored 18th-century mews courtyard housing further bedrooms and suites.

Notes for guests
Historic House Hotels: Middlethorpe Hall (long leasehold from the Ernest Cook Trust) is one of three Historic House Hotels, which was founded in 1979 to acquire and rescue run-down country houses. In 2008, they became part of the National Trust by donation to ensure that the houses and their land are kept safe forever and maintained to their present high standards. All hotel profits are donated to the charity.
Dogs: 1 large or 2 small dogs can be accommodated in the Garden Suites or the cottage.
