The Best Spa Hotel in Yorkshire

spa hotel YorkshireHotels in Yorkshire are renowned for their fantastic spa facilities; almost all of the hotels in the area will have at least a hot tub or sauna room. If you’re looking for a spa retreat, Yorkshire is definitely the place to go, but which is the best spa hotel Yorkshire has to offer?

The Fountains Court Holistic Health Hotel is very reasonably priced at under £40 per night, and provides all of the spa facilities you’d find at a more expensive hotel. There are strictly no children or night-clubbers allowed here, so you can be sure that nothing will disturb the tranquillity. Here you’ll find various holistic health treatments, including many not traditionally offered at spas, as well as the traditional spa and beauty treatments. This hotel isn’t just a spa; it is a place of total relaxation and well-being. The food is mainly vegetarian (although they will provide fish or chicken on request), and is packed with healthy ingredients. There is also a Zen garden where you can relax after your various treatments, and just to add to the atmosphere of perfect tranquillity even the furniture has been arranged according to the rules of Feng Shui.

Feversham Arms Hotel is attached to its own spa, the Verbena Spa. This is open separately to the public and provides a full range of top class spa treatments from Anne Sémonin and Elemis. This includes facials, deep tissue and muscle massages, coconut wraps and a milk ritual treatment. All of this is done by professional masseuses and beauticians in the deeply relaxing atmosphere of the spa itself.

The Devonshire Arms, one of the best known hotels in the Yorkshire Dales, is situated on the Duke of Devonshire’s 30,000 acre estate in the middle of the scenic Yorkshire Dales. Its Burlington Restaurant is the highest rated in the whole of Yorkshire, with a Michelin Star and a total of four AA Rosettes. Its Health Barn, meanwhile, comes with a full range of facilities including heated swimming pool, sauna, steam room, Jacuzzi, fully air conditioned gym, tennis court and relaxation lounge. Here you’ll find many Elemis spa treatments, including various facials, cellulite and colon therapy. This is in addition to various massages, including a full body massage, reflexology and tailor-made spa days. The Woodhall Hotel & Spa is also situated in blissful isolation, and offers a similar variety of Elemis treatments.

It is difficult to decide which of these deserves the title of the best spa hotel in Yorkshire. Each one offers a wide variety of spa treatments and extra facilities. Ultimately, however, I think the Devonshire Arms is the most deserving of the accolade. The Health Barn here is not just a spa, but it provides the same variety of treatments that can be found at the Verbena Spa. Not to mention the hotel itself is beautifully decorated and the restaurant is thought to be the best in the whole of Yorkshire. The grounds of the Duke’s estate are spectacular, and even without ever leaving the hotel there is lots to do every day.

The Most Romantic Hotels in Yorkshire

romantic hotels in YorkshireYorkshire is an area of outstanding natural beauty that is nonetheless not half as busy as some of England’s other attractions; the lake district, for example. Whatever time of year it is, you can find total tranquillity and isolation in the countryside of Yorkshire, making it the perfect county for romantic moorland walks and star gazing.

Due to region’s popularity as a couples’ retreat, there are plenty of romantic hotels in Yorkshire. If you’re looking for a luxurious romantic break, Ashmount Country House could be perfect. Set in the middle of Brontë Country (that’s the moorland surrounding Haworth), this hotel provides dramatic views across the moor from every beautifully decorated room, and all the luxury you would expect from a five star hotel at a very reasonable price. Here you’ll find al fresco hot tubs, perfect for watching the sun set over the moors with a glass of champagne in one hand and a canapé in the other, and private spa areas as well as private sauna cabins.

Stoney End B&B is also perfect for romantic and luxurious isolation. Set in the tiny hamlet of Worton, which is near Askrigg in Wensleydale, Stoney End is a barn conversion that has been done with the utmost attention to detail and every luxurious modern convenience you could ask for. This includes a sauna, hot tub and mini gym, as well as flat screen televisions with satellite in every room, access to wifi, a DVD player and an iPod dock. Despite these modern luxuries, the barn still retains its original character, with a real log fire in the lounge that provides for some truly romantic winter’s nights.

If you’re looking for something a little different in a Yorkshire Dales hotel, why not try the rustic charm of a B&B situated on a working farm? Perhaps the images that come to mind when you think of a farm don’t seem particularly conducive to romance – tractors, mud, dung – but Pickersgill Manor Farm B&B is an old-fashioned working farm that has retained its charm, rather than becoming overly industrialised. The owners serve the finest in organic product at breakfast time, including organic yoghurt, fresh fruit and granola, or a full English breakfast. The farm itself is situated on Silsden Moor, which gives easy access to the moors for walking and cycling.

Of course, there’s something wonderfully romantic about an old-fashioned seaside break, and you’ll find plenty of quaint little seaside towns all along the Yorkshire coast. Scarborough never quite lost its charm in the way that some might argue Blackpool did, and there are plenty of very reasonable hotels and guest houses here. The Mont Millais guest house in Bridlington, for example, is ranked four stars, has a Silver Award and a Breakfast Award from Visit Britain, has beautifully decorated rooms in a classical Victorian house, and can be had for under £40 per night.

Whether you want to relax in ultimate luxury, take a walk on the wild moorland, or stroll along an old-fashioned pier, there is plenty of romance to be had in Yorkshire, and plenty of romantic hotels in Yorkshire to make the experience complete.

Things to do in the Yorkshire Dales

Yorkshire DalesMost people visit the Yorkshire Dales for a mixture of three closely-connected things; relaxation, escapism and self-indulgence. Whichever of these you’re looking for the Yorkshire Dales have plenty to offer.

Relaxation often comes in the form of spa treatments in the Yorkshire Dales. Many luxury hotels Yorkshire Dales wide are known for their hot tubs, steam rooms and spa areas. One of the best is the Woodhall Hotel & Spa, located far from the madding crowd and sharing space with only one other building, which just so happens to be inhabited by a silent order or nuns. Here, you can receive a huge variety of spa treatments including Elemis facials, deep tissue massages, aroma stone therapy, sculping cellulite and colon therapy, exotic frangipani body nourish wrap, pro-collagen eye treatment. The Woodhall Spa also offers beauty treatments such as eyelash tinting and eyebrow waxing as well as manicures. There are so many treatments to receive here you could easily spend a whole week being pampered.

Another great option is the Feversham Arms and Verbena Spa. Here, you can receive a wide variety of Elemis and Anne Sémonin treatments including facials, deep tissue and muscle massages, as well as coconut rubs and milk ritual wraps. All of this takes place in the beautiful and relaxing atmosphere of the Verbena Spa, where all of your cares and gently soothed away.

If it’s escapism you’re looking for, it’s a great idea to get as far away from civilization as possible, and luckily the Yorkshire Dales are the perfect place to do just this. A walk over the rugged moorland of the Bronte Country around Haworth can release your mind of all that urban stress and replenish your sense of freedom. If you’re going to be enjoying the great outdoors, it’s a good idea to choose a hotel or guest house that is located outside of the Dales’ villages and towns. If you choose a hotel in a town, you may find that you have to catch a bus to actually reach the freedom of the open moor, which really defeats the purpose of coming to Yorkshire. Instead, you could choose a farm B&B. There are plenty of these on offer in the Yorkshire Dales, and they are usually both very picturesque and very reasonably priced. Don’t think that you’ll have to forego the luxuries of town by staying in the countryside; many of these B&Bs come equipped with flat-screen TVs, mini gyms and hot tubs too.

For self-indulgence, there’s nothing better than some good hearty Yorkshire cuisine and a nice bottle of wine to bring out the epicure in anyone. The Gold Lion restaurant (which is also an inn) has a reputation as being far tastier than its unassuming exterior suggests, while the restaurant at the Old Deanery in Ripon has a mention in the Michelin Guide. For something a little special, try the afternoon champagne tea at Ashmount Country House. If you don’t feel like eating traditional British food then try the Norwegian Grill-Kota at Castle View Guest House, where you can also indulge in tapas and barbeque grill on certain nights.

Five Star Yorkshire Dales Accommodation

Yorkshire Dales accommodationThe Yorkshire Dales are fast becoming known for the quality of the luxury accommodation that can be found here. There are plenty of five star hotels to choose from, whether you’re looking for a grand converted manor house or a cosy luxury B&B, many of which come at a very reasonable price.

Stoney End B&B, for example, is a Grade 2 listed building that dates from the seventeenth century. Situated in the tiny hamlet of Worton in Wensleydale, an area famous for its cheese, Stoney End has the sort of facilities that you’ll rarely find in a B&B. Here you’ll find not just beautifully decorated bedrooms and an award winning breakfast, but also a sauna, mini gym and private patio with a hot tub. Every room is kitted out with the best in modern luxury equipment including an iPod dock, flat screen television with DVD player and satellite connection, and wifi access. It’s no wonder that this small and unassuming barn conversion has managed to obtain the coveted five star ranking whilst earning a name for being one of the most romantic hotels in Yorkshire.

Thorney Mire Barn B&B is another example of five star Yorkshire Dales accommodation which comes at a very reasonable price. There are only 3 luxurious en-suite rooms here, which adds to the atmosphere of peaceful tranquillity. The B&B is situated within an area of private woodland and is two miles from the nearest village, which makes it perfect for a relaxing break. Every room is kitted out with all modern conveniences, and the en-suite bathrooms come with high end Molton Brown cosmetics. The nearby town of Heaves is a historic market town which is well-worth a visit too.

Tower House in Wakefield is slightly larger, with six individually furnished bedrooms. Its five star rating has been achieved due to the unsurpassed attention to detail the owners have shown in the design of each room. Each room has its own theme, inspired by a certain period in Pontefract’s history, and each comes with helpful and informative booklets about its particular theme. This helps to whet guests’ appetites for the local tour the owners provide around nearby Pontefract. The home-cooked food here is delicious, and made from the absolute best in locally sourced ingredients.

Ashmount Country House in ‘Bronte Country’ (the area surrounding Haworth) is a converted manor house that is steeped in cultural history. Not only is it situated on the moors immortalised by the Bronte sisters, but it also happens to be the former home of their physician. Nowadays, Ashmount has been redesigned as a luxury spa hotel, offering guests al fresco hot tubs, private spa areas and sauna cabins. Again, each suite has been designed with the sort of care and attention that merits its five star rating.

Most of these hotels are available for less than £100 per night, which is very reasonable considering that five star hotels in major cities are able to charge upwards of £500 per night, without any extra facilities such as saunas, spas or hot tubs. As you can see, there is plenty of truly luxurious Yorkshire Dales accommodation.

Seaside Hotels in Yorkshire

hotels in YorkshireWhile British seaside towns were popular during the middle of the twentieth century, they developed something of a reputation for cheapness and tackiness towards the end of the century and were for a time the domain of pensioners’ tour buses only. As we enter the twenty-first century, however, British seaside towns are once again regaining their popularity as somewhat poignant remnants of a previous age. Once again, young British people think it’s ‘cool’ to go to the seaside, and this resurgence in popularity has meant many old seaside towns have begun to thrive once again.

In Yorkshire, the towns of Bridlington and Scarborough are benefiting from this change in attitudes, and becoming popular with tourists once again. There are now quite a few luxury hotels to be found in the area as a marker of prosperity, but there is still plenty of reasonable accommodation in the area for families, couples and anyone seeking a retreat from the pace of an urban lifestyle.

Many four star seaside hotels in Yorkshire charge less than £40 per night, which is a remarkable level of quality to receive at such a price (bearing in mind that most five star hotels charge over £100 per night). One of the best examples is the four star Marina Hotel in Bridlington. Not only does the Marina charge less than £30 per night, but you also receive three nights for the price of two, as well as a further free night if you are a repeat customer. This hotel is situated far away from Bridlington’s pubs and nightclubs, which means street noise is kept to an absolute minimum and an atmosphere of peaceful tranquillity reigns. The hotel includes a cosy bar where guests tend to socialise with each other, and serves some delicious and hearty local cuisine.

In the same town, the four star rated Mont Millais guest house has received the prestigious Silver Award and hard-to-come-by Breakfast Award from Visit Britain. Mont Millais is only minutes away from Bridlington’s pubs, clubs and entertainment venues, so this guest house is probably more suited to those looking for a lively holiday. Like the Marina Hotel, Mont Millais is one one of the best value hotels in Yorkshire, giving four star rated quality at the very reasonable rate of under £35.

In nearby Scarborough, you’ll find the four star Princess Court Guest House, which again charges under £35 per night. This is a family run hotel with a really friendly feel, which provides six beautifully decorated and meticulously maintained en-suite rooms, and serves home-cooked meals to all its guests. The hotel is so cosy, in fact, that you feel as though you have been welcomed into a family home.

The Raincliffe Hotel in Scarborough has also received the Silver Award from Visit Britain, and is again family run. It is situated just ten minutes away from Scarborough’s main tourist attractions, clubs, pubs and restaurants. Again, this makes it perfect for those looking for a hotel in Yorkshire suitable a lively break, but at the same time the distance between the hotel and the centre of town is just enough to allow for some tranquillity.

Luxury Accommodation in the Yorkshire Dales

accommodation Yorkshire DalesThe Yorkshire Dales is gradually developing a reputation as an area for high-end relaxation holidays. For this reason, there is plenty of luxury accommodation Yorkshire Dales wide. If anything, there is perhaps too much to choose from.

For many people, the word relaxation is synonymous with the word spa. To truly relax, you need a Swedish massage. For ultimate spa-based relaxation, try the Feversham Arms Hotel at Helmsley in the Yorkshire Dales. This is attached to the popular Verbena Spa, where you can receive a wide variety of professional treatments such as Elemis and Anne Sémonin treatments. These include various facials, detox treatments and skin revitalising treatments, as well as a deep tissue massage. The hotel itself offers beautifully designed en-suite facilities. Each of its rooms has its own unique character, and photographs of each individual room are available on the hotel’s website.

The Wood Hall Hotel & Spa, meanwhile, offers a full health club and spa as part of its facilities. It comes with the added benefit of being completely isolated; the only other building nearby is inhabited by an order of silent nuns. Here, you can enjoy a variety of outdoor pursuits such as walking, cycling or picnicking, returning to the hotel at the end of the day to wind down with a relaxing spa treatment. The restaurant here has won two Rosettes and serves the best in local cuisine.

For opulence on a royal standard, there is Goldsborough Hall. This used to be the residence of HRH Princess Mary, and is still not open to the public, so staying here is a real luxury and a glimpse into another world. There are only six suites available here, which is a measure of its exclusivity, and each suite is gargantuan and comes with an antique Jacobean four-poster bed, ivory Chesterfield leather sofa bed, and luxury bathroom facilities.

However, for ultimate luxury, you could hire one of the most romantic hotels in Yorkshire: Carr Hall Castle. At only £2000 a night (to sleep ten people), hiring a whole castle isn’t actually as expensive as you’d think it would be. For a family event such as a wedding, it’s perfect. Carr Hall Castle isn’t a spooky or draughty old ruin, by any means. It has been fitted out with every modern luxury facility imaginable, including indoor heated swimming pool, hot tub, steam room, mini gym, and not one but six large plasma screen televisions. All of this comes along with the best in modern interior design, and the best quality of furnishings. With all of these features, it’s no wonder that Carr Hall Castle was voted the Best Home in Britain in 2008.

As you can see, there is plenty of luxury accommodation in the Yorkshire Dales. This is not a county simply for nature-lovers or hill walkers by a long shot. This is a county for some very high class entertainment and relaxation. The best thing about the area is that even five star hotels aren’t particularly expensive here, and can often be found for under £100 per night.

Reasonably priced accommodation in the Yorkshire Dales

accommodation in Yorkshire DalesIf you’re looking for dramatic scenery, perfect tranquillity and the best in locally sourced, traditional cooking, the Yorkshire Dales are the perfect destination. Although high season is during summer, the Dales are relatively popular all year round, with many of their hotels providing roaring log fires in winter. Almost anyone can enjoy a break in the Yorkshire Dales, and luckily there are prices to suit almost anyone too.

If you’re looking for high-end, luxury hotels Yorkshire Dales there are five star hotels to spare throughout the area. Goldsborough Hall, a four hundred year old Jacobean mansion house, is the former residence of a royal princess (HRH Princess Mary) and now offers six huge private suites to the public. The mansion is set in beautiful landscaped grounds, which themselves are enclosed by many acres of parkland, which allows total seclusion and quietude. Ashmount Country House, meanwhile, is set near Haworth in the heart of Bronte country. Here you’ll find outdoor hot tubs that can be enjoyed even in the cooler months of spring and autumn, private patios and spa areas, as well as some suites with their own private sauna cabin. There are also several five star B&Bs in the area. Stoney End B&B, for example, is set in the tiny hamlet of Worton in the Wensleydale area that is so famous for its cheese. Its breakfast is award-winning, and you’ll also find the sort of features rarely found at a B&B including a hot tub on a private patio, and a mini gym.

However, if your budget doesn’t quite stretch to such high end accommodation, there is plenty of cheap accommodation in the Yorkshire Dales too. Many of the small villages of the area offer great cheap B&Bs and guest houses. The Wood View Guest House, for example, is a Grade 2 listed building near the tiny village of Austwick which offers great access to the surrounding countryside for walks and cycling. It has also been beautifully preserved with original wooden ceiling beams and open fires. The Pickersgill Manor Farm B&B is situated on a real working farm, which can provide hours of amusement for young children. The food here is wonderful, being made from the freshest of local ingredients, and again the countryside location makes this B&B perfect for outdoor pursuits such as rambling over the moors or mountain biking.

Another farm offering B&B facilities is Westfields Farm near Leyburn. The breakfast here has won two awards, from Deliciouslyyorkshire and Enjoy England, and is again made from delicious, fresh, seasonal produce. Leyburn itself is a bustling market town that comes with plenty of interesting little boutique shops and some quaint English pubs to spend your afternoon investigating. Here you can choose to make use of the meals on offer, but you can also choose a more private experience in the next door barn which comes with more facilities than the main house itself, allowing guests to cook their own food.

If you’re willing to look, there really is some great cheap accommodation in the Yorkshire Dales, some of which has been rated with four stars and goes for around the £30-40 a night mark.



Romantic Hotels in Yorkshire

romantic hotels YorkshireIt’s no surprise that Emily Brontë’s Wuthering Heights, one of the most romantic books of all time, was conceived and set in the moors of Yorkshire. This dramatic landscape, with its unpredictable weather patterns and rolling hills, is the perfect scene for a stormy romance. This is no doubt why so many urban couples descend on the area each year, looking for a romantic getaway. If you’re looking to escape the daily grind and rediscover your passion for your partner, there are plenty of romantic hotels Yorkshire wide that will set the scene.

If you’re looking to explore the rugged moorland of Brontë country itself (the area around Haworth), there are two five star hotels willing to oblige; Ashmount Country House Hotel and the Manor Guest House. Ashmount Country House isn’t just situated in Brontë country; it actually has a real link to the sisters themselves, having once been the home of the Brontë’s physician, Dr Amos Ingham. There’s no doubt that the sisters would have visited the home of their doctor, and perhaps envisaged this place as one of the scenes of their fiction, perhaps even as Wuthering Heights itself. It’s easy to picture a ghostly Catherine banging at the window of the upstairs bedrooms here, which look out over the moorland.

Apart from its literary connection, Ashmount Country House is also a five star hotel with the type of luxury facilities you would expect. It comes with outdoor hot tubs, where you can enjoy the tranquil Yorkshire night with a glass of champagne. Some of the rooms have access to private patio and spa areas, while some come with their own private sauna cabin, and each suite has been designed with serious attention to detail.

The Manor Guest House, meanwhile, is a restored 18th century manor house that is ideal for rambling on the moors. Again, this is a five star hotel with an entry in the Michelin Guide. Its luxury rooms feature such extras as Jacuzzi baths, designer marble bathrooms, leather armchairs and open fires. Its literary credentials are verified by its age; the Brontës would probably have known the previous owners of this local manor house, and no doubt visited. Indeed, this too could be the house that Emily Brontë imagined when she pictured her scene of doomed passion in Wuthering Heights. Equally, this could be the manor where Charlotte Brontë imagined Mr Rochester living, with his ex-wife locked away in the attic. Here on the moors, it’s easy to find romance everywhere you look.

Of course,  Yorkhsire dales hotels aren’t what makes romance for everyone. For something that is charmingly romantic in its own way, but a little different, you could perhaps choose to stay in one of the many farm guest houses in the area. Hill Top Farm is for hire as a wedding venue, but it could also simply set the scene for a romantic getaway.

As you can see, there are plenty of romantic hotels in Yorkshire, whatever you’re looking for, whether that is luxury, beautiful scenery or simple rustic charm.

Finding a Cheap Yorkshire Dales Hotel

Yorkshire Dales hotelSometimes the sheer amount of hotels available in the Yorkshire Dales region can be intimidating, especially if you’re not sure what you’re looking for and you don’t know the region particularly well. It’s only easy if you know how, so here’s a quick guide to finding a cheap Yorkshire Dales hotel.

First of all, find a good price comparison website that gives full details of the hotels available and links to the hotel’s own website, if it has one. Good options are laterooms.com and lastminute.com. Even though their advertising seems to suggest that they are for people who are looking to find a room quickly or a cheap last minute deal, in fact these websites allow you to compare hotel prices well in advance too.

Next, you need to consider what you’re looking for in a Yorkshire Dales hotel. If you’re going to be enjoying a lot of outdoor pursuits such as walking and cycling, you should look at hotels that are located out in the countryside for easy access to great walks and cycle tracks in the Pennines or Howgill Fells, for example. If you choose a hotel in town you’ll need to bear in mind that you may have to walk for several miles each day just to get into the actual countryside, so this probably wouldn’t make much sense.

If you’re mainly going to be relaxing, you should perhaps consider a spa hotel. There are loads of spas in the Yorkshire Dales area, but most of the hotels that have spas attached are in the luxury rather than budget range. However, the Fountains Court Holistic Health Hotel is perhaps the best spa hotel Yorkshire has to offer and boasts a wide range of spa treatments, a patio hot tub, Zen garden and infra-red sauna, all for the very reasonable price of under £40 per night. You are unlikely to find this anywhere else, but luckily your hotel itself doesn’t need to actually have a spa. You could simply choose a hotel that you know is located next to one of the good spas in the area.

If you want to investigate the history of the region, you could perhaps choose one of the area’s many historic market towns. Ripon has a cathedral, and a great amount of ancient architecture, as well as some great places to dine out. Leyburn is another quaint market town that you might like to visit, while Pontefract has a fascinating history. Richmond has some very interesting boutique shops and a flourishing market.

If you’re looking to eat and dine out well, it’s probably better that you choose a hotel that is located in one of the tourist towns of the region, as that is where most of the best restaurants are located. Again, while many of the region’s best hotels come with their own restaurants, many of which are featured in the Michelin Guide, most of the cheaper hotels lack these facilities. What they lack in haute cuisine, however, they make up for in wholesome, fresh and tasty home-cooked food that comes with the personal touch most high-end restaurants lack.

Cheap Yorkshire Dales Hotels

Yorkshire Dales hotelsThe Yorkshire Dales are a perfect getaway for anyone who enjoys peace and quiet, traditional fare and romantic scenery. Every year, hundreds of nature lovers, walkers, cyclists and honeymooners all descend on the area to enjoy the atmosphere of tranquillity, staying in one of the many hundred hotels, B&Bs and guest houses in the area. Many of these hotels are high end luxury hotels with facilities such as indoor swimming pools and spas, but if you look carefully it is possible to find cheap Yorkshire Dales hotels, even in summer time.

If you’re willing to venture out from the main towns of the area and stay in one of the surrounding villages and hamlets, you can be rewarded with some very cheap, high quality accommodation. For example, in the tiny village of Austwick you’ll find the Wood View Guest House, a Grade 2 listed building that was built around 1700. Inside the original features of the building have been well preserved, with original wooden beams and log fires remaining. Each of the en-ensuite bedrooms has been beautifully decorated in traditional style, and the guest house provides great access to one of the most scenic areas of the dales, for anyone who wants to enjoy walking or cycling. There’s a pub nearby in the village, and you can enjoy some romantic nights sitting next to the log fire with a glass of wine too.

If outdoor pursuits are your thing, you may also enjoy staying at Pickersgill Manor Farm B&B on Silsden Moor which makes a great base for exploring the Yorkshire Dales. This is still a working sheep farm, so if you have young children and come during lambing season they can enjoy watching the new born lambs bounce around the fields. The farming family own and run the B&B, which creates a really welcoming and relaxed atmosphere, and some of the food they serve is grown on the farm itself. You don’t get much fresher than that! There are only two rooms at Pickersgill Manor Farm, which contributes to the homely atmosphere.

Westfields Farm at Leyburn also offers bed & breakfast facilities. The farm is actually located outside of Leyburn, so you don’t have to worry about being bothered by the bustle of a busy market town. The breakfast here is so delicious it has won not one but two awards, from Deliciouslyyorkshire as well as Enjoy England. They also offer a four-poster bed, open fire, and the choice of being based in their main building for a more bed & breakfast like experience, or in the next door converted barn, for a little more privacy and the use of your own cooking facilities. Leyburn itself offers some great restaurants and interesting little shops, so you’ll never run out of things to do even if you tire of outdoor activities.

All of these are available for the very reasonable price of less than £40 per night, and this is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to cheap Yorkshire Dales hotels. As you can see, if you’re willing to look, you’re sure to find something within your budget range.
