So last week myself and Tom, spend hours sending links back and forth over whatsapp looking for a place to stay for a little nights getaway for the weekend. What felt like hours...in fact it was hours, of humming and ahhing trying to find the perfect place to stay when we both eventually agreed on Middleton Lodge for a night in one of their rather beautiful garden suits.
Middleton Lodge certainly proved a good choice and worth all the hours spent on Trip Advisor. Set in the heart of Richmond with the surroundings of a luxury county estate, the lodge is simply perfect to escape any busy weeks and completely unwind.
The room was simply beautiful, exposed beams, a king size bed, roll top bath and cosy garden area plus not forgetting the home comforts in the form of Yorkshire Tea and home made biscuits.
We unpacked our bags, kicked of our shoes....did a running jump onto the bed and relaxed for the evening. We had made reservations for an evening meal at the Coach House restaurant (located at the lodge) and fully indulged in the form of amazing food, bath bubbles and prosecco bubbles out in the garden terrace. The evening meal was beautiful and i cant wait to share this in a separate post very soon.
The next morning we took our sleepy heads down to breakfast, well my sleepy head, Tom spent the morning playing with the nespresso machine in the room so i think that perked him up a bit...
Breakfast which was included in the stay, was a mix of a continental selection of yogurts, fresh fruit, cereals including home made granola and croissants plus a selection of warm dishes including a full English, eggs benedict (or eggs royal) and blueberry pancakes along with warm buttery sour dough toast.
I opted for the eggs benedict, which were divine and Tom couldn't resist the full english.
After breakfast we decided to make the most of our stay and headed out for the woodland walk around the grounds of the lodge. We decided to use the hotel bikes (free of charge) to complete the walk. I would like to say its true that once you learn you don't forget but i did have a few near misses into some poor unsuspecting trees.
Overall the stay was simply perfect, I feel it will take a lot for our next night away to top Middleton Lodge and i know i will be returning. Hopefully sooner rather than later.
