Overview & description
The Old Hill Inn is an ancient inn of great character, part of which dates back to 1615 and the other part 1835. Originally a farm, then Drovers inn, now specialising in delicious home cooked food and excellent puddings.
A family of chefs run the establishment, three working on the savoury side, and Colin, a famous pastry chef and sugar sculptor extordinaire has spectacular sculptures on display.
An interesting place with log fires and beams, where Winston Churchill used to stay for hunting, shooting and fishing holidays.
Situated in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales, nestling between Ingleborough and Whernside, with fantastic views from the superb en-suite letting rooms. An ideal location for a cosy meal and also catering for parties.
There are many walks from here eliminating the need for a car if one wants solitude and space, and it is also an ideal location for anybody interested in the local wildlife – birds and plant life especially. We have a woodpecker family living here!!
We have two beautiful ensuite bedrooms, one double and one twin, both with spectacular views over part of the breathtaking Yorkshire Dales National Park. They have open beams, attractive antique décor and are the perfect place to relax after a day out in the countryside.
The ensuite shower rooms are fully equipped to the highest standard and each room has tea and coffee making facilities, fresh fruit, television, hair dryers and information about the area.
Breakfast is included, with a choice of a delicious full English breakfast or variations of, or a more continental style with cereals, homemade croissants, toast or yoghurt and fresh fruit.
We are now members of the caravan club. Our site has loo disposal and water but no electric at present. We have space for five caravans, all hard standing.
The site, situated in the grounds of the pub nestles between Ingleborough and Whernside with amazing views down the valley and over the hills, with easy access to footpaths in the surrounding countryside. Walkers probably would have no need to use their cars following arrival!!
The advantages of the site are the old inn of course, for the marvellous food and well-kept beer and the need not to drive after a cosy night by the fire!! It is also an ideal location for anybody interested in wildlife – birds particularly and the plant life in the area is especially worth a visit!
