The Traddock Hotel, Austwick, North Yorkshire


THE TRADDOCK, Austwick, Yorkshire, which won a César award last year as Country Hotel of the Year, is this month’s prize-giving hotel. A Grade II listed Georgian manor, it has a 'homely' atmosphere and obliging staff. Three lounges have big sofas, lots of chairs, board games; the walled garden terrace, ideal for 'delicious scones in the sunshine', has views over the Yorkshire Dales. The chef, John Pratt, sources his ingredients locally for dishes like roast rack of Mansergh Hall lamb, fondant potatoes, clapshot purée, redcurrant and rioja reduction.

All you need do to win this handsome prize of dinner, bed and breakfast for two at THE TRADDOCK is to SEND A REVIEW of your favourite hotel or B&B in Great Britain or Ireland. We welcome reports on places that have never been in the Guide or have been omitted, as well as those that have a current entry.

Peter Anderson from Newbury is the winner of last month’s prize of dinner, bed, and breakfast for two at NEWFORGE HOUSE, Magheralin, Co. Armagh, Ireland. It won a César award this year as Irish Guest House of the year, and is well placed for touring Northern Ireland or for visitors venturing further south. It is run by John and Louise Mathers (his family has owned the house for six generations) in hands-on fashion. Ten years ago they sympathetically renovated the Georgian house (built in 1785) to run it as an upmarket guest house. Original features have been preserved; there are heirloom antiques throughout – pictures, tapestries, clocks and ornaments.
