The Devonshire Fell



Situated in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales in picturesque Burnsall, well-known for its landmark five-arched bridge, and being the setting of the film, ‘Calendar Girls’, this boutique hotel boasts the most breath taking of views from its superb location.

Beyond the traditional Edwardian facade are superbly-styled interiors with colourful, contemporary design and original works of art. Each of the hotel’s sixteen bedrooms is individually styled, with strong pastel shades and a simple country theme, with modern art and ceramics offering a homely touch. The restoration and design of the property was overseen by The Duchess of Devonshire herself, as the hotel is part of the award-winning Devonshire Hotel and Restaurant Group.

The dining here is well-renowned and especially so since the arrival of Yorkshire Chef, Rob Harrison who worked for more than 8 years at the acclaimed Michelin-starred Pipe & Glass pub at South Dalton. Since becoming Head Chef at The Fell in 2015, he has influenced the two AA rosette à la carte and tasting menus with his wealth of culinary experience and flair and use of fine local produce.

Far reaching views across the Dale from the elevated, light and airy conservatory-style restaurant enhance the day light dining experience. There is a fine selection of wines and Champagnes to complement it too.

For overnight guests, the Fell suites with their sofa beds and two bathrooms, are particularly popular with families, whereas a romantic choice of rooms in the cosy eaves would be ‘Malham’. Many bedrooms here enjoy river views and the hotel is a popular choice with walkers, country lovers, cyclists and generally those who appreciate a combination of quality accommodation with a less formal environment.      

Pampering at sister property ‘The Devonshire Spa’ only a ten minute drive away is an added bonus to your stay here being complimentary to guests of both properties. Facilities include a heated indoor pool, sauna, Jacuzzi, steam room, nail bar and treatments using the deeply luxurious and world-renowned Temple Spa product and treatment range.

Dogs are welcome at the hotel too, guests and their four-legged friend can simply enjoy the laid back atmosphere and extensive ‘off-lead’ walks in the surrounding lands of the Bolton Abbey estate.
