The cosy four-star, 45 bedroom historic properties is one of Yorkshire's finest privately owned hotels, full of charm and character, and right in the centre of it all, surveying the town's bustling market place. Externally, the hotel has three distinct sections, Elizabethan, Georgian and Tudor, giving a hint to its centuries of hospitality, whilst at the rear is a quintessential walled garden tiers away from the property to view the adjoining village church.
