About Us

Welcome to The Ruddings, a historic Victorian building that has stood proudly since its construction in 1903. What once served as lodgings for visitors to the picturesque village of Braithwaite has now been transformed into a boutique hotel with 21 rooms, offering a unique blend of timeless charm and modern luxury.

Formerly known as “The Middle Ruddings” the unusual name derives from the names for the fields that the hotel was built on. In the 19th century, there were three “Ruddings” fields. The hotel was built on what was the middle field, making it “The Middle Ruddings”.
