The Historic Hall dates back to 1597 and is at the gateway of the Yorkshire Dales near the market town of Skipton, set in 3000 acres of parkland with stunning formal gardens and surrounded by areas of outstanding natural beauty.  The rooms are grand with a georgian elegance, an array of fine art and furnishings, is said to be one of the best collections of Gillow furniture in England.  The Red Drawing Room has ornate fireplaces, lavish fabrics from floor to ceiling and the Green Drawing Room is wonderfully opulent.  Both the conservatory and the Hall Library allow you to unwind and provide you with a peaceful haven away from the outside world.

The bedrooms are all individual with a character of their own, the wood panelled Elizabethan Room, the quirkiness of the Old Nursery and the grandeur of the North Room are truly a delight to spend the night in or maybe two or three................The bathrooms are luxuriously decorated with roll top baths and marble showers, most being en-suite.
