Easter Open Gardens Middleton Lodge This Easter weekend, we’ll be opening up the Kitchen Garden for its first Open Garden weekend, for hotel and restaurant guests to explore. Throughout the weekend, guests that reserve lunch at The Coach House will get to be one of the first to visit The Kitchen Garden, designed by renowned landscape designer, Tom Stuart Smith. Lunch guests will also have the chance to take their little ones on the woodland walk egg hunt. With lots of clues along the way, follow the treasure map across the estate to complete the map…

After your little explorers have discovered all of the clues, it’s time pick up your chocolate egg from The Coach House, and then make your way into The Kitchen Garden for playtime and a spot of croquet on the lawn.
