Escape everyday life and find sanctuary at the stunningly restored 19th-century Saltmarshe Hall. Behind its honey-stoned façade, you’ll discover fashionable interiors with a nod to the manor’s heritage, as well as ornate chandeliers, William Morris wallpaper and antique furnishings for added luxury.
Located on the River Ouse and nestled among 17 verdant acres, you’ll have ample opportunity to relax and unwind in this botanical oasis. Why not stroll along the riverside, spotting wildlife amid ancient oak trees dotted around the landscaped gardens – or for the more adventurous, grab a bike and cycle through the woods.
Wine and dine in style on the terrace and soak up the gloriously lush views, while you savour lovingly prepared dishes made with locally sourced ingredients. Afterwards, head for a nightcap or curl up in one of the reading rooms on a cosy sofa next to an open fire, admiring the opulence of your surroundings.
Rolling hills, rustic farmhouses and wild sheep are just some of the things that come to mind when you mention Yorkshire, but this county has much more to offer. The TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence-awarded Saltmarshe Hall is right on the River Ouse, so there are plenty of riverside walks and fishing opportunities.
There are also lots of charming little villages sprinkled around the countryside, that offer a slice of country living and a slower pace of life – check out local pubs for hearty fare and a pint before meandering back to your elegant manor house stay. The town of York is under an hour’s drive away, so for those seeking a little culture on a weekend getaway can get their fix.
