We stayed here because we could not get into the Devonshire Arms, The Devonshire Fell is the sister hotel to the Devonshire Arms and is around 4 miles down the road. We travel with our little dog, and both places are dog friendly. It is as rural as you can get, and we were welcomed by a charming Manager who was very helpful. The food is very good especially the breakfast, but would have been happier if we could have had an extra half hour in bed because breakfast finished at 9.30. The dining room is quite chic and similar in style to the Tresanton in Cornwall. I think that the conservatory/bar needs a little work, it is a bit uncool and the music needs a little more thought as we felt as though we had to whisper all the time and in such a casual area, the atmosphere should have been relaxing and buzzy and the music a bit more upbeat. Our room was newly decorated and was a very nice surprise, exceptionally clean and the bed and bedding were very comfortable. Some of the hotels who accept dogs expect you to sleep in a kennel - not so here, so that was a delight. If you are a hiker this is paradise, we are not, we were in the area to enjoy driving around Yorkshire but still enjoyed our stay. Only one criticism, there was nowhere to put dog waste and as a responsible dog owner this was frustrating. Unfortunately, some owners did go to the trouble of cleaning up, but left their little bags scattered around the car park which isn't nice. That said, a lovely few days away and would return.
