A Few Days In The Yorkshire Dales

Autumn is the perfect season for a little adventure around the Yorkshire Dales. So, we ventured to Burnsall, to spend a couple of nights at the Red Lion Hotel’s Manor House.

This 16th Century Coaching Inn, the Red Lion Hotel is located on the banks of River Wharfe, with some of the most beautiful views of Wharfedale. The Manor House is a short walk from the hotel, and has recently undertaken a vast refurbishment, making it the most sought-after place to stay in Burnsall.

We stayed in a family room on the ground floor, which offered two stunning bedrooms, one with a double bed and the other with twin beds. Both rooms have the latest smart TV, coffee and tea making facilities including Nespresso machine in the double room, mini fridge in the twin room and freshly made shortbread.

The décor and interiors are another level beautiful, with a nod to the countryside in all rooms even the shower room. Quaint framed pictures of dogs and hares, teapots with woolly sheep tea-cosy’s, sumptuous cushions, luxurious bedding, and White Company toiletries.

The Manor House at The Red Lion Hotel is the epitome of luxury accommodation. We wouldn’t think of staying anywhere else from now on.

Back at The Red Lion Hotel they offer an extensive menu for all guests and visitors. People travel from all over to enjoy a local beer or Sunday roast. This Daniel Thwaites owned coaching inn is always bustling with both drinkers and diners alike.

We dined in the pub’s restaurant, and were served by some of the nicest staff we have ever had the pleasure of talking to. They guided us through the menu offering advice on certain dishes, and we opted for a Sunday roast and fish and chips.

The fire was roaring, the locals were enjoying a few beers, and we sat happily enjoying our Sunday evening meals. That night we went to bed extremely full and couldn’t imagine ever eating again!

There’s no keeping a Yorkshireman (and Yorkshire woman) down though, especially when a traditional breakfast is on offer. So, we left the Manor House and strolled through the grounds to take breakfast in the pub.

Another menu with some wonderful choices for breakfast, the chef even made fried toast (which wasn’t on the menu) for our cheeky 12 year old daughter. The continental table had fresh juices, cereals, yoghurts, bread and toast to help yourself too, which was lovely. Our breakfasts consisted of a traditional cooked, and Eggs Florentine.

We spent the day touring the region and visited Skipton, and Grassington where we shopped until we dropped.

The Red Lion Hotel at Burnsall is the perfect base from where to travel around the Yorkshire Dales. Everything from the friendly welcome to the excellent food and drinks, to the décor in the rooms and the layout of the pub is wonderful.
