Attraction details
Owner description: The Hall spans seven centuries of English domestic architecture and is set in 40 acres of tranquil grounds which include a beautiful walled garden, an orchard, Middleton Lake and three nature trails. Middleton Hall Trust was established 34 years ago by a group of intrepid volunteers to save and restore the then dilapidated Hall. Their hard work now means that these lovely buildings and grounds can now be enjoyed by all of us. The Hall is open most Sundays between Easter and the end of September, whilst the grounds are open to members on weekdays. Please visit the Event Calendar section on our website for further information.

I really love visiting Middleton hall not only for its beautiful grounds ,which in the summer I could spend every day there if I could , but also the building , the children can play on the park and visit the sweet shop in the courtyard . We as a family like attending the events held at Middleton like the food and craft market . And family fun day . An overall lovely place to be

“Lovely day for a leisurely walk”
Reviewed February 17, 2014 via mobile

I love leisurely walking round Middleton, it's calm and tranquil with plenty of wildlife to see. On the last Sunday of each month there is a craft and food fayre which is lovely to browse and see such talented people brought together, definately worth a look

“the courtyard is good. The hall is never open”
Reviewed November 25, 2013

I live locally and I have tried to visit the hall on several occasions after checking out the website, but the hall was shut!. The courtyard has a range of shops which are interesting and there is a wildlife bird park next door that is well worth popping into , but be warned it can be muddy.

Poor for hall and good for courtyard and bird sanctuary

“A hidden gem! Worth a visit especially last Sunday of the month.”
Reviewed November 24, 2013

I have been involved in the courtyard / hall for 18 months and it is a wonderful place to be part of, ran mainly by volunteers this is a hidden gem.
The last Sunday of each month there is a food / craft market with approx 35 stalls.
The courtyard has been undergoing a facelift recently with the units being painted, new shops opening (14 units in all) there is something for everyone. The RSPB nature reserve is also on this site, There is a play park (build 2013) in the glade, a beautiful walled garden.
This is also a popular wedding venue with a stunning backdrop and steeped in history.
There are various events throughout the year (some are chargeable) check on their website for details. It is free entry to the courtyard itself.
As the hall costs approx £500 per day to run they rely heavily on donations on market day there is a £2 per car fee but you get a whole day out across the estate.
The courtyard has a coffee shop, antiques shop, beauty parlor, cupcake shop, dog groomers, sweetshop, upholstery centre, cheese shop, vintage crafts and more, it is open Wednesday to Sunday 11-5pm mainly however the coffee shop is open 7 days and appealing to walkers, cyclists and is a dog friendly place.

“Vanmaster Association Visit”
Reviewed October 20, 2013

We were staying at Drayton Manor and decided to visit the hall with a party of 38 people on a cold and wet October day. We took a guided tour and were greeted with hot drinks to start our visit and this was matched by the very warm welcome given by Jo and Betty who were conducting the visit. We found Betty excellent at not only giving us the history of the estate but ensuring we gained some very interesting facts about the area and helped us appreciate and understand how life at eh house has changed through the centuries.
Thanks we really enjoyed the visit and the courtyard cafe for a well served lunch.
