Yorkshire Dales

This guest blogger opportunity is now closed.

This month our lucky guest blogger will be in the Yorkshire Dales and Lake District. What could be a better way to experience the glorious scenery in these outstandingly beautiful regions of England?

Staying for one complimentary night at each hotel, with dinner, bed and breakfast provided, you’ll travel between the two locations under your own ‘steam’ and have the opportunity to extend your stay in either or both places at a discount. 

The Angel Inn at Hetton in the Yorkshire Dales National Park

The Angel Inn at Hetton in the Yorkshire Dales National ParkThis is a well-known and popular gastro pub with lovely bedrooms in the heart of a small Dales village just north of Skipton.

It’s a perfect base for sight-seeing with so much to see and do close by: just right for relaxing afterwards in the warmth of the pub or on the terrace in the summer sunshine.

Food is a high point at The Angel Inn as is the choice of hand picked wines – unashamedly leaning towards small French producers – plus hand pulled local ales. 

Scafell Hotel, Rosthwaite in Borrowdale, Lake District National Park

Scaffel Hotel Scafell Hotel, Rosthwaite in Borrowdale, Lake District National Parkis a classical Lakes hotel in the picturesque Borrowdale valley; the river runs immediately behind the hotel leading into Derwent Water with Keswick at its head. And of course, Scafell Pike from which the hotel takes its name is close by.

Tasty local Cumbrian food is served – a choice of the hotel restaurant or the hugely popular Riverside Bar, the hotel’s pub next door, offering a good selection of hand pulled local ales and over 60 whiskies. All the rooms are modern and well equipped for comfort – the Barnes Wallis Suite is named after the inventor of the bouncing bomb (the Dambusters) who regularly stayed at the hotel.
