The Vibe

From the picture-perfect gardens, to the sandstone buildings and surrounding North Yorkshire countryside, Middleton Lodge is an 18th century Georgian country estate with two individual wedding venues set in its 200 acres of private land.

The Main House is full of hand painted wall paper, original features and antique furnishings passed down the family’s generations. There’s four reception rooms for guests to relax in, with a sweeping staircase in the Grand Hall leading up to 16 stunning bedrooms. For those looking to party into the night, there’s the late night cellar bar. The Main House is only available for exclusive hire making it your very own home for the day.

For an English country garden wedding, take a visit to the Walled Garden, a beautifully restored, romantic space with seasonal flowers and gorgeous blooms spilling out onto the borders. Hidden away in the garden is The Fig House, the estate’s recently restored wedding venue, with original brick walls, botanical interiors and one-of-a-kind garden antiques. Floor to ceiling windows and doors fill the space with natural light and provide stunning views of the garden, whatever the season.

For your wedding breakfast, expect a seasonal feast full of locally grown produce. In the summer months, its BBQs in the garden and platters full of freshly caught fish and roasted vegetables. In the colder months, there’s a menu of warming chargrill dishes, served with the very best ingredients foraged straight from the estate and local farming community.
