Pocket Guide: Historic Hotels Hotels in North Yorkshire

North Yorkshire is the largest county in the United Kingdom and one of the most diverse. From unspoiled countryside to welcoming rural villages and exciting family attractions, this fabulous county has it all. The county is also packed with historical attractions, making it a particular hit among history buffs. The number of historic hotels in North Yorkshire is also astounding, meaning visitors can feel the magic of this special county throughout their holiday.

Historic York

York is one of the most beautiful cities in the country, filled with stunning old buildings and pretty, pedestrianised streets. York's charms and attractions make it the second most-visited city in the UK, lagging only behind the nation's capital.

Highlights around York include the famous Clifford's Tower, the Dungeon and the Jorvik Viking Centre. The National Railway Museum is also well worth the visit.

As you'd expect from such a popular city, York has no shortage of exquisite hotels and guesthouses, the bulk of which are within easy walking distance of all the city's major attractions.

Period Properties

Across North Yorkshire, visitors will find an abundance of period properties, many of which retain plenty of original features. Many of the finest buildings in North Yorkshire's towns and cities have now been converted into hotels, allowing holidaymakers to get up close and personal with the most stunning buildings in the county.

The Grange Hotel in York is a fine example of what's on offer. The hotel is housed within a Grade II listed Regency manor. The interior is finished to a high standard, with furnishings sensitive to the property's aesthetic.

Traditional Inns

You don't have to book into a ritzy five-star hotel to soak up the feel of a traditional North Yorkshire property. The county is also blessed with a huge number of traditional inns like The Castle Tavern in Richmond.

The Castle Tavern offers four guest rooms, all set back from the quintessentially English bar area. Guests can enjoy free WiFi, an open fire and some sumptuous local grub. The lively market town of Richmond has a rich history, which visitors will be keen to unlock in the local museum.
