Built in around 1700, Middlethorpe Hall is a 29-bedroom country-house hotel set within 20 acres of manicured lawns in York. This award-winning hotel has been fully restored by the National Trust inside and out to maintain the look of a private 18th-century manor house. A 4-star AA Inspectors' Choice hotel, Middlethorpe Hall offers a "country-house vibe and exceptional dining", according to The Daily Telegraph.

Next to York's racecourse, this 300-year-old property is a 10-minute drive from the medieval town centre, home to York Minster, which Lonely Planet describes as "one of the most beautiful Gothic cathedrals in the world". York railway station is around 10 minutes away by car.

Winner of two Visit York awards and a Good Hotel Guide-recommended property, Middlethorpe Hall exudes opulence throughout its hotel and 2-AA-Rosette wood-panelled restaurant. The AA describes the candlelit restaurant as "the perfect setting for enjoying the imaginative cuisine", while overlooking the gardens. Alternatively, guests can relax at the hote's spa, which features an indoor pool, steam room, a sauna, a whirlpool bath and a gym.

There are 10 bedrooms and suites within the main house, which are furnished in the style of an 18th-century country house, with antique furniture and large sash windows overlooking the south lawn or the beech avenue. In the restored courtyard building there are 17 well-appointed bedrooms which overlook the formal gardens. For further privacy, book a cottage or garden suite located 75 yards away. These little boltholes continue the 18th-century charm but also have living areas both indoors and outdoors, plus the two-suite cottage can be booked in its entirety.
