My wife and I stayed for one night at the Devonshire Arms last week and we cannot recommend it highly enough. The location is beautiful, the staff very friendly and helpful and the food in the Burlington restuarant exquisite. We're looking forward to going back soon.

Stayed for a 3 night break with our English Setters. Have stayed here many times before but first time with our dogs. As ever, excellent service enhanced with 'dog sitting' service! It is an expensive hotel but worth every penny. Fantastic food (although not eaten in the formal restaurant) and good room service if you want it. Fantastic walks from... More

A fabulous find of a hotel, which feels more like a home from home ;) We were lucky enough to visit twice in one month, both times during May bank holiday weekends. The first visit was a surprise engagement, in which the staff couldn't do enough to ensure my partner gave me a really special experience. We stayed in the... More

This is a wonderful country house hotel. Very welcoming and a wonderful spa. It is the perfect location right on the Bolton Abbey Estate. Loads of walks with splendid views.The restaurants were lovely and the breakfasts 10 out of 10. Would definitely go there again.

We stayed here for four nights . On arrival this hotel was everything I had hoped it would be, a wonderful cosy atomosphere with a roaring log fire in reception. Our room ( the photography room ) was perfect with plenty of room for our two dogs. The bed was very very comfortable A nice touch was to be able... More

We were a party of 8 staying in 4 rooms. From the moment you enter the grounds to departure we were made to feel like honoured guests. It's not the food that defines the place (although the food is certainly excellent) it's not the accommodation ( which is somewhere between very good and excellent) but it is the staff that... More

A favourite country house hotel in a glorious situation in perfect countryside, this time I organised a two day stay for four couples of old friends, including a private dinner. From making the arrangements, to the rooms, dining, service - as usual everyone is welcoming, professional, helpful. Dinner in both the Brasserie and in the private dining menu was wonderful...

We stayed for one night, a year after our first visit. Everything about this hotel is delightful. The location is stunning, the rooms beautiful and really well appointed, the food is interesting and the staff are extremely helpful and friendly. It manages to provide a high quality experience with ease. We felt very welcome and hope to go back.

Overnight stay to take in the Bluebell Walk advertised on the website. This was taken by Eddie the chief concierge. What a fantastic, informative , interesting walk it was. 4hrs in the fabulous countryside around Bolton Abbey with wonderful scenery, learning all about the estate, the countryside, the wildlife and finally the bluebells. Shame it can only be twice a... More
