Good Hotel Guide Review

The good life just gets better at this tranquil retreat in 200 acres of Georgian parkland, with rooms in the coach house and beautifully styled hideaways. James and Rebecca Allison are creating an evolving arcadia around their Palladian mansion. ‘It’s a very special place,’ says a devotee. Sensitively restored outbuildings are the acme of rustic chic. The Doghouse, in the orchard, overlooking a wild-flower meadow, has French doors to a patio. The Head Gardener’s Cottage, with timber-panelled walls, super-king bed and wood-burning stove, opens on to the vast, prolific kitchen garden. Dairy hot-tub rooms have a private garden, a bath and walk-in shower, Roberts radio and espresso machine. In the restaurant and outside, an estate-to-plate menu features dishes from land, sea and garden, with inventive plant-based options. Our reader enjoyed ‘delicious bramble mocktails; a beautiful crab starter, full of intense flavours, helped along by a bowl of fries; gorgeous chocolate mousse’. A new gourmet restaurant, Forge, will serve a tasting-menu on weekends in December 2022 and four evenings each week from February 2023. The Forest Spa is being restored, and Middleton Lodge is available for private hire. (P and PT)

Comments about The Coach House 
at Middleton Lodge

Glorious setting with huge trees and white flowers. Friendly staff and excellent food. Our room was up steep stairs and not too well designed but we saw a lovely, spacious ground-floor suite. Beautiful walled garden and good woodland walk. - CR - May 2018
A lovely hotel with cheerful staff. Our spacious room had a wood-burning stove and a large bathroom. Delicious dinner. - PM - January 2018
