Hotel description
A warm and friendly Yorkshire welcome awaits you at this proper family run Inn. Next year will be our 30th at The White Swan and we have just about got things organised. From the moment you walk through the doors you'll feel at home. We aim to keep things simple and just let you relax ...Tom Parker Bowles reckons 'Every market town should have a White Swan' and the Daily Telegraph described us as 'God's own Country Pub' on a recent visit. If you read the reviews here you will get a flavour of what we are trying to do. We are an Inn with a lovely restaurant and 2 rosette food but not the plastic fine dining you find in many four star properties. Real food, real people, lovely rooms and great value for money.And by the way if you are not delighted I will give you your money back so long as you tell us at the time.Victor Buchanan - Owner

It's a kinda interestingly different place. The front bar area is a little dark and old-style pub (ish) with a decent bar (a couple of real ales) but nothing to write home about. The rooms (in the main building) are accessed up a narrow set...More

Hi Alan. Sorry but no. There is a really good public pool nearby but we don't really have the climate or the space.
