Know It All
Hit the spot
Near the village of Bainbridge, in Wensleydale.
Come here for...
• The chance to soak under the stars in your own outdoor hot tub. • Scenic Yorkshire Dales that start on the doorstep. • A nicely relaxed vibe.
There's a bar and restaurant, plus a DVD library. You can also book in-room spa treatments.
Good to know
DO BOOK WELL AHEAD at weekends – the hot tub suites are often booked up months ahead. Stay on a weekday if possible!
11 rooms and suites
Each room has a different decorative theme – whether inspired by Morocco (as in Rahmoune) or the Maldives (Rangali). Rooms have widescreen TVs with satellite channels, wi-fi, a DVD player and home made shortbread. Many have rolltop baths or double showers.
Five rooms – Nishiki, Kariega, Rangali, St Jean and Rahmoune – have their own terrace with an outdoor hot tub, plus 'The Barn' a luxurious self contained suite 5 minutes walk from the main hotel with it's own terrace and hot tub. Our favourite rooms include orientally themed Nishiki, Kariega, with its riverside hot tub, and loft-style Greenwich, with its side-by-side bathtubs. Rococo-style Pienza is another charmer, with its ornate carved bed.
Eat & Drink
Ornate mock-baroque mirrors, standout wall fabrics and teardrop chandeliers make the dining room at Yorebridge House a special place to dine. Have a drink in the intimate little bar first or sink into a suede armchair in the lounge for a chaser later.
Try the poached lobster and seared scallop salad to start, followed by mains such as grilled Wensleydale fillet of beef with red wine sauce or rack of local lamb. Delicious desserts include warm pear and almond tart, home made icecreams and local cheeses. There’s also a bar menu for lighter bites.
Served until 9.45am midweek and 10am at weekends. Treats include smoked salmon, Yorkshire ham and Wensleydale cheese, organic muesli and fruit compote. Go for the full Yorkshire if you’re seriously peckish – we loved the Whitby kippers and Swaledale sausages.
Available morning and evening.
See & Do
Bring your walking shoes and head out into the glorious Dales – Yorebridge House will pack you a picnic lunch to eat along the way. Take a peek at Aysgarth Falls – a tree-lined flight of waterfalls on the River Ure – and other scenic highlights. Cheese lovers will enjoy a trip to the Wensleydale Creamery to see how the region’s most famous export is made.
In-room massage, manicures and facials can be arranged through reception with a local therapist.
Side shows, races and a fancy dress parade are highlights of the annual Hawes festival.
See sheep shearing, livestock and traditional Yorkshire Dales handicrafts at the big Reeth show in Swaledale.
