What's better than a sumptious meal followed by a night's stay in quality accommodation? Well, Yorkshire has it's fair share of excellent choices when it comes to this. Here are some highlights including some that were shortlisted in the 2014 White Rose Awards:
Winner of the Restaurant with Rooms was The Angel Inn at Hetton - With origins over 500 years old in part, once a single storey crofters cottage, the Angel Inn at Hetton in North Yorkshire probably received its licence to brew and serve beer to passing cattle drovers in the early 18th century. Over the years it has been rebuilt and extended, but unlike so many 'contrived' country pubs, it has retained many of its original features. All oak beams, separate rooms, nook and crannies, it is a hotch potch of contrasting styles and features, which come together to create an authentic atmosphere reminiscent of a more relaxed and bygone age.
Estbek House - Situated in Sandsend, one of North Yorkshires most prettiest coastal villages, Estbek House is a award winning restaurant with rooms. They are proud holders of two coveted AA rosettes for their restaurant and the accommodation is rated as 'Highly Commended' four star under the 'Restaurant with Rooms' category, scoring 84%.
The Cleveland Tontine - This is something of an institution in beautiful North Yorkshire. Built as a coaching Inn in 1804, this renowned hotel and restaurant has a unique atmosphere; at once both traditional and contemporary. Significant recent investment has created a sophisticated venue for both business and pleasure with several different dining spaces, a chic cocktail bar, seven stunning bedrooms and a fabulous function room.
Yorebridge House - The dining room here is calm and peaceful for breakfast as light streams in through the French windows with views over the North Yorkshire Dales, but by night, is dark and candle-lit, where guests can linger in an atmosphere of decadence. A real treat.
The Carpenters Arms - s a traditional village inn located in the heart of Felixkirk village, on the outskirts of the Market Town of Thirsk, North Yorkshire. Voted ‘Yorkshire's Favourite Pub' in 2013 and ‘Flavours of Herriot Country Dinning Pub of the Year' in 2011, The Carpenters Arms specialises in bringing its guests high quality food, drink, service and surroundings, including a superb private dining room for larger parties.
The Wensleydale Heifer - Located in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales, this traditional inn has been fully refurbished, retaining the original features whilst offering our guests every modern comfort. The accommodation boasts nine themed bedrooms, based upon many of the unique traditions of the Dales.
