Place to stay for 2 nights.

I want to book a weekend away for me and my husband. After researching for days, I'm confused after finding so many beautiful places to stay.

I particulary like Hawes, Leyburn and Aysgarth areas and wanted suggestions for inns/guesthouses, but if anybody can suggest other areas that would be good too.

Thanks for your help.

Nikki

1. Re: Place to stay for 2 nights.

There are indeed numerous lovely places to stay, plus 'Yorkshire' covers a huge area. Is that what is confusing you?

Did you mean you want to stay in North Yorkshire? The places you list in your question are all in the Yorkshire Dales - is that where you wish to go?

Is this for a special occasion? And what are your interests? For instance Aysgarth is a tiny village (with wonderful waterfalls). Leyburn and Hawes are both bustling large villages/small towns. Aysgarth would be great if you loved walking and the countryside, but not so good if you wanted something a bit more exciting!

Plus - what is your budget?

If you could give us more info I am sure we could help more. In the meantime I'll share some of my favourite Yorkshire Dales places with you.

1) For romance and a special occasion - Yorebridge House. Not cheap but very special - many rooms have their own outside hot tubs. Food is great and the whole place has the 'wow factor' if you are looking for a treat.

2) For amazing sea food, and an overnight stay in a traditional Dales inn - the Wensleydale Heifer. West Witton is a reasonably sized village

3) Another very good inn with nice food, but a very small village again, the Angel at Hetton -

4) For a well priced and highly regarded B&B in a small Dales town - Roslyn House in Pateley Bridge (Nidderdale)

5) Another 'special occasion' place, and this is where we go for anniversaries, birthdays etc - Yorke Arms, Ramsgill. The food is out of this world, and Ramsgill is pretty, but it is a tiny hamlet and pretty remote.

6) Another well priced pub, small village, extremely pretty area - Red Lion, Burnsall

Hope this helps.

2. Re: Place to stay for 2 nights.

Thank you so much for your reply.

It is North Yorkshire I'm thinking of staying, but as I mentioned there are so many beautiful villages I keep changing my mind about which one to opt for.

We both enjoy walking but wanted a village that was fairly traditional but not too quiet.

The budget is about £80 per night for the both of us (£160), not a huge amount but I'm hoping we can still find something.

We both need to recharge our batteries and have some 'us' time as like most people have been caught up in the stress and strain of life recently.

I will be looking at the places you have already recommnded.

Thank you for your time.

Nikki.

3. Re: Place to stay for 2 nights.

Thanks for your response. Some of the places I have mentioned will blow your budget but others should be ok!

You probably know this already, but North Yorkshire has two National Parks, the Dales and the Moors. It looks as if you have settled on visiting the Dales and I'm sure you will find something to suit your budget.

This website can be useful -

Also Grassington Lodge sounds very nice. Grassington can be quite busy on a summer weekend but you only need to walk a few minutes out of the town and there are gorgeous walks. It's also got a good range of pubs, cafes, restaurants etc, so could be ideal.

Have a look at the link below for the Ellerby Hotel. It is at the upper limit of your budget but we have stayed at this small hotel/pub a couple of times and really liked it. Situated in a lovely quiet hamlet just at the edge of the North York Moors and a short drive to Whitby, Robin Hoods Bay, Staithes etc. Nice comfortable rooms, pretty garden and very good food.
