Pocket Guides: Independent Hotels in North Yorkshire

From keen history buffs seeking enchanting castles to travelling families on the lookout for lively attractions, North Yorkshire has what it takes to satisfy holidaymakers of all persuasions. With more than 40% of its land set in National Parks and miles of pristine coastline, this diverse county always delivers. To round it all off, North Yorkshire is home to an impressive selection of independent hotels, promising first-class facilities and service across the county.

Character in the Country

Undoubtedly, one of North Yorkshire's biggest draws is the ample countryside on offer. Whether you're heading to the county to unwind in an elegant spa retreat or to strap on your walking boots and explore the moors, there's plenty to be done in North Yorkshire's National Parks.

Of all the rural hotels in North Yorkshire, it's the independent ones which exude the most character. Lastingham Grange is a fine example of the charm possessed by the county's independent hotels. The 12-bedroom property is coated in ivy and centre round a pretty courtyard. Guests are free to explore the 10 acres of gardens, and the North York Moors National Park is right on your doorstep.

Helpful Staff

One of the real benefits to staying in an independent hotel is the personal touch you can expect from staff members. As owners have a real vested interest in the happiness of their guests, it's not unusual for them to spend time in communal areas, offering advice on the best things to see and do in your area. This can be particularly handy if you're trying to plan a walking route to suit you.

Exploring York

As the country's second most visited city, York sees a large number of visitors throughout the year, and not without good reason. The historic city is packed with fascinating attractions, not to mention all the fabulous places to shop, eat and drink.

The city's blessed with numerous independent hotels, B&Bs and guesthouses. Among the most popular is Gray's Court, a stunning five-star complex in the heart of the city. Built way back in the 11th Century, the property is incredibly atmospheric, and the lovingly tended gardens are beautiful all through the year.
