In February 2018, the Taylor Morris team hit the road with Morgan Motors and drove to the Yorkshire Dales to capture the Taylor Morris X Morgan Motors collaboration in true British style.
Following a five hour drive from London Morgan in a Plus 4, the team arrived at the beautiful Georgian retreat, Middleton Lodge. Set in 200 acres of rural North Yorkshire, we explored the grounds before settling in at The Farmhouse. After the drivers enjoyed some well-deserved massages in the treatment rooms, we drove to a local pub and became acquainted with the neighbours. After a great night's sleep, the team woke bright and early to a delicious breakfast in The Coachouse followed by a morning of discovering the lodge. After a cycle around the grounds, the team warmed up with a quick meal in The Farmhouse and set off for an afternoon drive in The Yorkshire Dales.
After braving the elements on our afternoon adventure, the friendly team at Middleton Lodge opened up The Forge Barn for an evening of gin tasting thanks to Mór Irish Gin. Our barman, Tom, made us a selection of cocktails from the Pineapple Gin & Wild Berries Mór Gin including 'Pineapple and Gingerale' and 'Gin & juice'.
After a few drinks, we walked over to The Coach House for a delicious dinner in the private dining room. Our favourites included the chargrilled broccoli, soy-glazed duck & the crispy hen's egg, our photographer Grey was particularly curious about this but dish but concluded, it was "A really nice scotch egg".
We ended the night back at The Forge Barn, chatting by the fire accompanied by some questionable music choices and late-night jenga.
