Overnight Stays

REVIEW | The Devonshire Arms at Bolton Abbey – The Yorkshire Dales

The Devonshire Arms at picture-perfect Bolton Abbey on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales is one of Yorkshire’s most fabulous and intimate places to stay. It's old school, luxurious, and a proper treat for anyone looking for a romantic 24 hours.For me, the hotel's location always congers up scenes from the original hit musical; Mary Poppins, where Dick-Van-Dyke chalks a perfect picture of the English countryside and they all dive in for a day out in the country.

REVIEW | The Devonshire Arms Inn at Beeley – The Peak District

My mantra has always been that a hotel room is a means to an end. It’s a bed that you need after visiting somewhere far more interesting than the four walls where you sleep. How can a hotel room really be much different from another? Oh, how wrong I was. The Devonshire Arms at Beeley, hands down, the nicest hotel room I have ever had the pleasure to stay in. Period.

REVIEW | The Devonshire Fell – The Yorkshire Dales

Set in the most picturesque location in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales, The Devonshire Fell sits proudly overlooking Burnsall. This hotel offers the perfect retreat for a variety of occasions, be it an intimate weekend with the other half in one of Yorkshires Best Beds or a suite with the girls for a spa weekend. It is the perfect location for walks from the door and the perfect environment to look forward to returning for a fantastically executed meal in the evening.

REVIEW | Ye Olde Bell Hotel & Spa – Sheffield

Ye Olde Bell must have been listening to my prayers, because it felt like I had literally won the golden ticket when they got in touch inviting me for a kid-free spa weekend. Jaded by pregnancy and the whirlwind of baby twins, I had literally been waiting for a weekend like this for a what seems a lifetime. Relaxation, pamper, food, wine and a good nights’ sleep. I couldn’t help but set high expectations for what Ye Olde Bell was going to offer me.

REVIEW | Matfen Hall Hotel, Northumberland

For me (and I think the whole of social media) it was a long, long, long Christmas. My husband worked away for Christmas so our celebrations began in November when he was home and during that time we ate all the food and drank all the wine. By the time my husband went back to work on the 10th December I was all Christmassed out and was approximately 80% Sauvignon Blanc

REVIEW | Rudding Park Hotel & Spa – Harrogate

I needed some proper R&R.  My aching body was crying out for a long luxurious massage. My mental health was in a state of despair after weeks of struggling to power on through the trials and tribulations everyday life as a wife, mum and business owner with a varying strain of the God-awful Ozzie Flu gripping to my weary bones. My overnight sojourn to Rudding Park Hotel and Spa just 10 minutes outside of the spa town of Harrogate In Yorkshire could not have come at a more perfect time.
