Where is Middleton Lodge?

Middleton Lodge is located in rural North Yorkshire, the address is Kneeton Lane, Richmond, DL10 6NJ England.

The setting

This venue is a lovingly restored retreat on 200 acres of privately owned parkland, with an award-winning hotel and restaurant, holistic treatment rooms, and two elegant event spaces that can be hired exclusively for wedding celebrations.

Middleton Lodge weddings can be held in the Georgian Main House, which has a sweeping staircase, large reception rooms, a private croquet lawn, and a garden marquee, or in the two-acre Walled Garden and Fig House, which is hidden away behind restored brick walls.

The aesthetic 

Each space has been designed uniquely, drawing inspiration from the surrounding countryside. Botanical themes are subtly woven into each lounge, cosy nook, and bolthole scattered throughout the estate.

The interiors are refined yet casual and offer a welcoming environment where guests are encouraged to relax and unwind.

The honey-coloured stone, lavender, and wildflowers add a Mediterranean feel to the estate during the spring and summer months. In the autumn and winter, roaring fires, hearty dishes, and flickering candles add a sense of cosiness to any space.

Middleton Lodge’s Walled Gardens, redesigned by renowned landscape architect Tom Stuart-Smith, are filled with lush greenery and the scents of British flowers, with four arbours, one for each season.

The originally restored Fig House‘s large windows and doors open onto the large terrace and fill the space with natural light, with Fig vines trailing up the brick walls.

The Boiler House Bar, which serves delicious garden cocktails, has deep velvet green sofas, open fires, and handpicked botanically inspired antiques.
