Check Availability

Middlethorpe Hall is a William III country house, close to the historic city of York and set in 20 acres of manicured gardens and parkland. Built in 1699, it was once the home of the famous diarist Lady Mary Wortley-Montagu.

After a period of neglect, the Hall was restored with carefully chosen antiques and fine pictures. The bedrooms, each decorated individually, are located in the house and in the 18th-century courtyard alongside. The panelled dining rooms overlooking the gardens and the imaginative food follows the theme of traditional excellence. There are two rooms available for private parties.

Middlethorpe Spa contains a large swimming pool, spa bath, steam room, sauna, gymnasium and three beauty treatment salons. Qualified therapists provide treatments using Decléor, E’Spa, Caci Quantum and Jessica products. The hotel also has a small conference centre ideal for meetings and private entertaining.

In September 2008, Middlethorpe Hall became the property of the National Trust by donation, with all profits benefiting the house and the charity.
