National Trust, Middlethorpe Hall

Middlethorpe Hall, on the outskirts of York, is one of three country house hotels in the Historic House Hotels group, given to the National Trust by Richard Broyd in 2008 (the others are Hartwell House and Bodysgallen Hall). The manor, distinguished for the quality of the woodwork, was built by 1702 by a West Riding ironmaster, Thomas Barlow of Sheffield (d.1713). His descendants continued to live there until 1824. Although, between 1713 and 1715, the celebrated Lady Mary Wortley Montagu (1689–1762) lived at Middlethorpe with her son, who suffered from rickets. A portrait of her, after Jonathan Richardson, hangs on the staircase. Having been a nightclub, it was rescued from a bad state of repair in 1980 by Richard Broyd who rebuilt the stables and provided the pictures and furniture.
