Rather grander than its name suggests, Katrina and Derek Gray’s Grade II listed Georgian manor house stands in large landscaped gardens within acres of farmland; the wildlife-rich woodland of the Yorkshire Wolds extends beyond.
Minutes from the A1(M) at Scotch Corner, on a ‘huge estate in beautiful countryside’, James Allison’s ‘exciting’, ‘very chic’ restaurant-with-rooms is approached by a tree-lined drive.
‘Unlike any other hotel in which I have stayed.’ Founded as a school for girls in 1686, this unusual Grade I listed Georgian building houses England’s oldest active convent and quirky, good-value accommodation.
A 300-year history of hosting weary travellers backs this characterful country pub. Over the past 15 years, Michael and Sasha Ibbotson have continued that tradition, with ‘good-quality, excellent-value dining and accommodation’ in the ‘friendly’ inn and adjacent farm cottages.

England’s largest county has much to offer, ranging from the national parks of the Yorkshire Dales and the North York Moors to York with its ancient city walls, medieval buildings and glorious minster. Beverley, too, has a fine minster, Ripon a honey-stone cathedral. Harrogate, once a fashionable spa town, is now known for its tea shops. Scarborough a fashionable seaside resort in the 17th century, is well supplied with amusement arcades and fish and chip shops, but also has quiet parks and gardens.
Hotels in Yorkshire offer a wide variety of excellent experiences. Stay at a mock-Gothic castle, a hotel reminiscent of an Agatha Christie novel, a welcoming pub or a converted cottage – quaint, quirky or stylish and elegant – the Good Hotel Guide’s hotels in Yorkshire each have their own distinct character. The centres of the industrial cities of Leeds and Sheffield, much improved in recent years, are worth visiting for their art galleries, museums and restaurants. Famous Yorkshire ruins include the abbeys of Fountains, Whitby and Rivaulx. Stately homes include Harewood House and Castle Howard. Richmond has a fine castle above the River Swale. Haworth, where the Bronte sisters lived, is a popular destination, if very touristy.
