The Blog Squad Edit

Three of the North of England's finest country hotels have made it into this month's Blog Squad Edit. The Blog Squad have visited and reviewed all three of these dreamy abodes owned by the Duke and Duchess of Devonshire, located in tranquil and unspoilt locations on both the Bolton Abbey Estate in North Yorkshire and the Chatsworth Estate in Derbyshire.  Here's why we love all three...
The Devonshire Arms Bolton Abbey

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.

The Devonshire Fell

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.
