Pencil in a stop at this lovingly restored Georgian estate, where coffee and fresh-baked cake seekers are as welcome as those seeking a heartier, three-course garden feast.
Edging the Yorkshire Dales, this 18th-century estate - complete with hotel, treatment rooms and two-acre walled garden - has been brought back to life by the Allison family. Its two restaurants are sure to impress.
The cosy Coach House restaurant shines in every season, with head chef Ross Forder serving 'estate to plate' inspired dishes all day long. His menus mark the ebb and flow of the seasons, featuring home-grown ingredients and fresh produce from the surrounding farms. Mornings are made for pots of coffee and just-risen croissants; Yorkshire breakfasts await those with a full day ahead. Lunch or dinner may come from garden, land or sea. Book ahead to enjoy the memorable tasting experience with wine pairing (Thurs to Sun eves only) at Middleton Lodge: a country escape at which to feast, gather and pause.
