Win an epicurean two-night spa break in a luxury York country house hotel worth nearly £800
Monday 25 March 2013
Middlethorpe Hall and Spa is a York institution: a gorgeous red-brick William and Mary country house, built in 1699 and lovingly refurbished into a sumptuous, historic hotel.
Owned and operated by the National Trust, the hotel sits in 20 acres of beautifully maintained gardens and parkland. It's decorated in the 18th Century style, and boasts a rather indulgent private spa.
