Slowdown and Savour the Dales this Summer

Summertime and the living is easy at The Devonshire Arms Hotel and Spa. Make the most of your downtime this holiday season with a three-night ‘Summer Slowdown’ stay exploring the magnificent Bolton Abbey estate on the hotel’s doorstep, with the opportunity to partake in a host of daily activities, to nurture new skills and interests or simply enjoy some favourite pastimes in the idyllic setting of this spa hotel, totally immersed in the open countryside of the Yorkshire Dales.

Guest activities on offer include croquet or pétanque on the lawn, a history insight of the Priory at Bolton Abbey or a yoga lesson or guided walk in the Dales open countryside – there is something for everyone to enjoy and learn more in variety of daily offerings, with no obligation whatsoever – an open invitation to join in as you wish.

Furthermore, the 30,000 acre Bolton Abbey estate beckons with its 80 or so miles of pathways to explore, treading a variety of natural habitats, including ancient woodlands, rocky outcrops, waterfalls and streams, pasture and moorland, each with its specific blend of flora and fauna. Guests have so much to explore in the immediate vicinity of the hotel’s grounds and Estate beyond.

The three-night stay includes an early check in, a bottle of chilled Cuvee in guests’ rooms upon arrival, dining credit each evening for the hotel’s multi-awarded Brasserie and al fresco dining, around which the Dales sweep and soar the horizon. Fine diners will relish the option to sample the delights of fine dining in Burlington (at a £44 per head supplement)

The revamped spa will aid the relaxation process easefully, with its vitality pool, massage jets and bubble beds, a coup especially for active walkers and yogis, enjoying the opportunity to unwind in this pampering haven as often as is wished, with no need to pre-book on this particular package.

With so much to enjoy on the doorstep, it’s tempting to just hang up the car keys for a few days but intrepid explorers may also wish to use the hotel as a hub for touring around North Yorkshire’s outstanding natural beauty spots and historic towns. These include the Forest of Bowland, and towns such as Harrogate, Knaresborough, Ripon and the city sights and theatres of Leeds.

The Great Yorkshire Show at nearby Harrogate is one of the largest country shows in England (July 9th – 12th, pre-booking is recommended)
