Hotels with pools in Yorkshire: romantic spa hotels and foodie restaurants with rooms From the National Trust's Fountains Abbey to the 13th century York minster cathedral, Viking heritage to Roman ruins, it is little wonder that Yorkshire attracts visitors time and again. Surrounded by some of the most idyllic countryside, including the Peak District's Dovedale Valley and Kinder Scout Plateau, as well as vibrant cities like Leeds and scenic ones like York, hotels in Yorkshire fuse hospitality, history and style as well as plenty of things to do. While there is much to see and do across Yorkshire however, many of its most exceptional hotels are havens of relaxation in their own right. Many have indoor pools and outdoor pools that entice guests throughout the year, and if you are exceptionally lucky you might happen upon one of Yorkshire's spa hotels, complete with thermal suites and decadent treatments to soothe mind, body and soul. In particular, when thinking about places to unwind in Yorkshire, one thinks of the country house hotel, Middlethorpe Hall and Spa. This red brick treasure and domain of Britain's hoi polloi throughout history sits in 20 acres of grounds and retains many of its historic features such as the 17th century dovecote that has been turned into a cellar. One of its more contemporary additions, befitting modern hospitality however, is its spa. A gem within the grounds, it occupies two listed Edwardian cottages and has its own garden, complete with a large pool, sauna, steam room and decadent treatments. Another of the region's prized hotels exemplifies a wholly different style of hospitality. A more boutique experience complete with cosy comforts, superb food and style, The Pheasant at Harome sits in a quiet village overlooking a duck pond. The former blacksmith's shop now houses an award-winning restaurant with rooms, bringing you the best of Yorkshire's foodie favourites after a day relaxing by the indoor pool and looking out onto a courtyard of fruit trees.
