- HandPicked Hotels - Getaway at Crathorne Hall Hotel
'Built in 1906, overlooking the Leven Valley on the edge of the Yorkshire Moors, Crathorne Hall Hotel in North Yorkshire is at once grand and stately, warm and welcoming. Owned by the Dugdale family until 1977, Crathorne Hall has played host to politicians, courted royalty and delighted socialites over the decades'.
'Crathorne Hall Hotel in North Yorkshire is set in 15 acres of private grounds and has been awarded the prestigious accolade of 4 Red Stars, being among the top 200 hotels in the UK and Ireland. The hotel has 37 bedrooms, all of which have recently been refurbished and offer the likes of LCD televisions, complimentary internet access and luxury toiletries. There are also a number of feature bedrooms, offering large open spaces, luxurious bathrooms and some with balconies'.
