“Don’t be surprised to see a Maserati or Bentley in the car park, The Yorke Arms really is top of the class with Michelin dining to impress even the harshest of critics, Rolls Royce service and up to date cosy bedrooms. A rural abode in full perfection.”

Hotel Review

“The Yorke Arms near Pateley Bridge is top dollar in every regard – starting with the cars in the carpark. You are in for a very serious treat indeed staying here. Pitched as a ‘Restaurant with Rooms’ (you can’t book on a room-only basis) there is no doubt that the kitchen is at the very heart of what they do here, but the rest of the hotel is equally impeccable. This place runs like a well-oiled machine, nothing is too much trouble and everything has been thought of – down to the Oat and Almond Milk choices at breakfast for modern food faddies. Whilst this is luxury personified, it is certainly not stuffy – there is plenty of wit and whimsy in the décor. There are 18 blissful bedrooms of varying sizes and price points which are named not numbered. Take your pick from Vixen, Howzat Bill?, Game On, Old Trout, On Yer Bike, Ey Up or others…. they are all delightful; individually decorated in chic country style with sumptuous fabrics and bold wallpapers. There are original pictures by David Cotton and other local artists and a great collection of amusing Punch cartoons of classic rural characters. The bathrooms are tip-top modern and cosseting with lashings of hot water, fluffy white towels, delicious smellies and under floor heating.

In addition to the Michelin-starred principal restaurant, there is The Little Dining Room adjacent to the bar which is less formal but serves food which is no less creative and delicious – don’t expect chicken in a basket with ketchup and fries here! That said, if you wanted ketchup it would be served appropriately.

Book in for a top treat or anniversary, or as a base for exploring the glorious Yorkshire Dales which surround you. Harewood House, Newby Hall, Fountains Abbey, Jervaulx and the Stump Cross Caverns are all within striking distance. You will not be disappointed.”

Out of the Wild

This was a very good lunch indeed, in the sort of surroundings that can't help but make things feel special. And after good coffee, and tiny tablets of fudge, we laced up our boots and set off for a long hike over the grand hills of Olde England for the betterment of our souls.
