A hotel garden in North Yorkshire which “takes the breath away” has been named one of the UK’s loveliest by The Telegraph.

Middleton Lodge’s outdoor space in Richmond is brimming with plenty of stand out features, from “lush” meadows to flower borders and a two-acre walled garden.

It’s been described as the ideal place for not just weddings, but also a “romantic stroll”.

The publisher commented on its latest travel guide: “In an era when we are all thinking more than ever about how to enjoy and preserve a natural and sustainable way of living, perhaps hotels will put as much emphasis on their beautiful, productive grounds as they do on their internal luxuries.”

Why does Middleton Lodge have one of the UK’s loveliest hotel gardens?

The Telegraph wrote: “Non-residents can join seasonal tours of the gardens (the next one is on June 23; pre-booking essential) on this Georgian country estate, with its combination of rustic-luxe rooms in the Coach House, cottages and shepherd’s huts in the orchard.

“The entire rural retreat is awash with lush meadows, flower borders, shrubs and climbers but it’s the estate’s two-acre walled garden, designed by Tom Stuart-Smith, that takes the breath away.

“Divided into four areas for year-round appeal, the garden has a blowsy formality, perfect for the weddings that take place here but also a romantic place for guests to stroll.”
