Unplug, relax, and unwind this summer with a extra long stay at The Devonshire Arms Hotel & Spa

Draw back the curtains in one of the The Devonshire Arms Hotel & Spa’s luxurious rooms and you’ll be greeted with rolling hills as far as the eye can see, surrounded by beautiful lush green gardens. The country house hotel is set on the southern edge of the Yorkshire Dales and makes the ideal tranquil escape.

The expansive 30,000-acre estate is owned by the Duke and Duchess of Devonshire, and you can see Bolton Abbey in the distance. Steeped in heritage, rooms boast elegant and stylish decor – there are even huge four poster beds in some of the rooms if you so wish.

Each room is individually decorated, and extra-special touches to make your stay unforgettable include roll top baths, welcome hampers filled with goodies, and a concierge service.

The hotel is renowned for its AA Rosette award-winning restaurant: The Burlington. Diners can expect an innovative menu, with seasonal dishes – such as salt-aged venison with caper jam and Leeds blue – made with produce from the estate’s very own kitchen garden.

With sprawling views over The Dales, The Brasserie & Bar is also not to be missed. With a menu of crowd-pleasers, it’s the ideal place for a Sunday roast, laid back dinner, or a glass of wine. Guests can also cosy up by the fire in The Cocktail Lounge. There’s nowhere better to wile away an afternoon and indulge in an quintessentially English afternoon tea.

The Devonshire Spa offers Temple Spa treatments, spa days, and gym sessions for ultimate relaxation and wellness. Housed in an ancient converted barn, facilities include a state-of-the-art vitality pool, steam room, sauna, rasul chamber, and luxurious lounge.

For a truly extra-special experience, you can also book into ‘The Secret Spa’. Tucked away behind the barn, the beautifully furnished bell tents provide a magical outdoor spa retreat for two, with stunning views of the surrounding Dales.

Soaking up the scenery as you explore the local area also can’t fail to help you switch off and relax. Breathe in the fresh air as you explore the surrounding ancient woodlands, wild moors, and peaceful riverbanks. Take a shopping trip to the picturesque Spa town of Harrogate, or visit the famous Skipton Market.
