This was our second visit to Hipping Hall. We stayed in the new rooms that are in the courtyard which are beautifully appointed. Huge comfy bed and bath big enough for two with lashings of hot water! As always the food was exceptional, Oli Martin is a genius. Hugely different and interesting tasting menu; there is nothing on there that... More

Had an amazing time at this lovely place. The title says it all. Perfect for relaxing and treating yourself. The service was friendly and the food was better than a couple of Michelin star restaurants we have been to, so well done!

Hipping Hall is a nice boutique hotel a few miles outside of the beautiful village of Kirkby Lonsdale. Not very well signed from the road so keep your eyes open. Lots of walking from here including Ingleborough. Although I can't fault the hotel, things like rooms, linens, etc are not quite up to the standard of a luxury hotel. The... More

Everything was nearly perfect, but just missed the mark. It's difficult to describe why, but the whole experience was rather soulless. The food was too fussy and the combinations of flavours didn't work for me. Our room (one of the new ones in the stables) lacked the attention to detail that I would expect at these prices: three mirrors but... More
