Yorkshire Hotels and Guest Houses Accommodation Guide

Yorkshire offers a wide range of hotels, inns and guest houses, ranging from smaller family-run guest accommodation to country house hotels and traditional village inns. Inns are lively places and form the heart of many village communities in Yorkshire so there are plenty of opportunities to meet the locals and often there is evening entertainment such as quiz nights and live music.


The Yorkshire Dales is famous for its scenery, with each Dale offering a different landscape ranging from the rugged to the gentle. Stunning countryside is criss-crossed by stone walls, with great rivers flowing through the valleys, and above spectacular moorland scenery.

Whether visiting the Dales to tour, to walk or enjoy some of the many countryside activities, there will be a hotel, inn or guest house to meet your requirements. The southern Dales are accessed via the market town of Skipton. Upper Wharfedale, follows the River Wharfe from the village of Grassington, with Littondale turning off near amazing Kilnsey Crag. Nearby Malham is famous for the limestone amphitheatre at Malham Cove. The small towns of Settle and Ingleton give access to the Three Peaks countryside dominated by the peaks of Ingleborough, Whernside and Penyghent. Perhaps take the acclaimed Settle-Carlisle railway across the Ribblehead viaduct to Dentdale. The northernmost Dale of Swaledale is noted for its stone field barns and summer flower meadows with nearby Arkengarthdale leading to rugged moorland scenery. Aysgarth Falls is a highlight of Wensleydale, between the two small towns of Hawes and Leyburn. Nidderdale is centred on the village of Pateley Bridge, and extends from lush farmland on the outskirts of Harrogate to the moors at Lofthouse and Middlesmoor.

If you're walking in the North York Moors inns provide accommodation at reasonable prices and also offer a sociable atmosphere. After a long day walking you can retire to your room to relax then head downstairs for some local home-cooked food and great company. This National Park has something for everyone, with pretty villages, magnificent abbeys and fascinating museums. Learn more about the natural history of the area at the Danby Moors Centre or explore the historic buildings at Ryedale Folk Museum. For a tranquil day out visit the National Trust's captivating Fountains Abbey to see the ancient abbey ruins and superb Studley Royal water garden.

For a room with a sea view head to the Yorkshire Coast, where accommodation includes seafront hotels, historic inns and harbourside guest houses. The rugged coastline provides endless opportunities for walks along the dramatic cliff-tops, fossil-hunting on the Dinosaur Coast and cycling in the fresh sea air. In Bridlington walk along the elegant promenades or visit the uniquely situated Sewerby Hall and Gardens. Discover Saltburn's historic attractions including the oldest water-balanced cliff lift in Britain, the magnificent 600ft-long Victorian pier and the Italian Gardens.

Relax in the stunning Yorkshire Wolds with a stay in a country house hotel or traditional village inn. Discover picturesque towns with independent shops, thriving markets and festival throughout the year. Pocklington, the gateway to the Wolds, is a historic market town whose Arts Centre hosts a wide array of artists, actors and musicians whilst Driffield is a jewel of a town with opportunities for canoeing and sailing on the River Head canal. In York boutique guest houses offer the chance to stay in the heart of the city with all the attractions just a short walk away. Discover the magnificent York Minster, medieval Clifford's Tower and York Art Gallery or enjoy a different view of the city on a boat cruise along the River Ouse.

Step back in time in West Yorkshire and learn more about the industrial revolution with visits to the National Coal Mining Museum in Wakefield, Salts Mill in Saltaire and Leeds Industrial Museum. Why not enjoy a stay in a romantic country house hotel in Brontë Country, where the atmospheric moors inspired the Bronte sisters to write their famous novels.
