Rural Properties

  • For tradition and comfort executed in a modern style the Star Inn, a pub with rooms near Helmsley is fabulous. One of the rooms has a pool table at the end of the bed, but if that isn't recommendation enough, breakfast is eaten in a beamed circular room at a circular table. A lovely laid-back mixture of rustic and modern with great food, it is highly recommended.
  • The Devonshire Arms is a lovely country house hotel set in glorious parkland with a spa, two good restaurants (one with a Michelin Star) and a Helipad.
  • Its sister hotel, the equally comfortable Devonshire Fell is more informal with bold colourful interiors. Guests have access to the pool and spa facilities of the Devonshire Arms.
  • Another relaxed pub with rooms is the White Swan Inn, an updated 16th Century coaching inn in Pickering. The stultifying traditional residents lounge of old has been re-imagined here as the Club Room kitted out with pool table, newspapers, magazines and an honesty bar.
  • The Traddock is a cosy Georgian country house hotel in stunning countryside on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales. All bedrooms are individually decorated, some with roll-top baths. Dinner in the award-winning organic restaurant is a treat.
  • The eco friendly Swinton Park Hotel set in 200 acres of parkland with a lake and walled garden between the Yorkshire Dales and North York Moors National Parks manages to be grand (being in a castle) and unpretentious. The food is mostly sourced from the estate and there is a cookery school in the former stables run by Chef Stephen Bulmer.

For urbanites

For those who prefer to base themselves somewhere more urban the excellent Hotel du Vin chain has places to stay in both York and Harrogate.

  • The bedrooms in Hotel du Vin York, housed in a purpose-built extension are boutiquey and comfy with splashes of colour. The reliable bistro has a racing theme.
  • Hotel du Vin Harrogate feels slightly corporate but is comfy and cheery with a champagne and claret bar which must look irresistible after a long day.
  • Back in York, The Grange is a traditional Georgian hotel in a great location at the heart of the city. A mix of swaggy swirly canopied old school in some bedrooms and Farrow & Balled wooden-floored modernity in the public areas, the owners know how to look after their guests well.
  • The hundred year-old Balmoral in Harrogate has similar drinking and eating areas but with slightly more modern bedrooms. Open fires and a lively bistro make this a popular spot.
  • 42 The Calls in Leeds was one of the first boutique hotels to open outside London and is still the best place to stay in the city. A converted 18th century corn mill, the bedrooms verge on the masculine but are full of rugged character.
