An extraordinarily welcoming North Yorkshire country house hotel

Must be a pub, with a name like that? Perish the thought! In fact The Devonshire is an extraordinarily welcoming country house hotel set among the rolling acres of the Duke of Devonshire's Bolton Abbey Estate, just a few miles outside Skipton, North Yorkshire. It is grand – of course it is, given that the other Devonshire family seat is Chatsworth. But it isn't stuffy or even particularly formal, and with only 40 individually designed rooms and suites there's a genuinely familiar welcome backed up by some highly polished service. Located in a brilliant North Yorkshire location, with the Great Outdoors right on your doorstep and dogs welcome too, the whole thing's a treat and can't be faulted.

The Devonshire's array of portraits, antiques and mementoes keep the ducal connection very much in mind. This place exudes luxury and comfort, with great facilities, including an excellent restaurant and a spa with gym, state-of-the-art vitality pool and other relaxation inducing facilities. Guest rooms vary in size and aspect, but most have lovely rural views, and those situated in the original 18th-century part of the hotel (the 'Old Wing') have ornate fourposter beds. Even the lowest room category – "Classic', housed in the 'New Wing' – comes with king-size beds, lots of space for seating, mini fridges and complimentary water and tea and coffee, welcome treats and more. All rooms have good wifi, Freeview TVs and en-suite bathrooms with Noble Isle toiletries. Deluxe, Luxury and Superior rooms sometimes have super-king-size beds and a bath as well as walk-in shower, plus they are more spacious and have better views, while the hotel's suites, situated on the ground floor of the New Wing, all have large four-posters and separate sitting rooms and predictably glorious views. Throughout, there's a keen sense of modern country style and classy little extras: umbrellas at the door, hot chocolate delivered to your room at night – or, at the other end of the scale, the hotel's own helipad out on the lawn.

Don't forget, all guests have complimentary access to the Devonshire's Spa. Treatments can be booked and there's a gym, pool, sauna and exclusive spa days in the scenically situated bell tents of the outdoor 'Secret Spa'. Eating and drinking are similarly as relaxed or posh as you want them to be. There's a lovely cosy cocktail lounge available for a drink or two, a brasserie serving lunch and dinner, and a dog-friendly bar, while the more upscale Burlington offers both delicious seasonal tasting menu and a la carte options.



This Christmas, we're offering an indulgent three-night festive stay from December 24th-27th, filled with seasonal cheer, warming open fires, unparalleled hospitality, delicious dining in the Burlington Restaurant, and plenty of Champagne! Click here and head to the offers page for more info and to book.


Open all year.

Fantastic Yorkshire Welcome

We love the Devonshire Arms and have been back many times to stay and we only live 30 minutes away! Afternoon tea in the lounge is a lovely way to relax after a good walk on the Bolton Abbey estate, the bedrooms are extremely comfortable and stylish and the food in the Burlington is a real treat. However, the best thing about this hotel is how at home the team make you (and your dogs) feel. We happily spend rainy days in front of the roaring fire near reception with a newspaper or across the road in the spa and the elegant dog lounge is a great place to relax at any time of day. This lovely hotel has also recently been awarded a gold standard green tourism award which shows they are doing lots to operate in harmony with the Bolton Abbey estate and minimise their impact on the environment. Well worth a visit - prices are sometimes much cheaper especially mid week. Check out there website for latest offers e.g. January and February 2015 stays start at £125 per room per night.
