The Devonshire Arms Country House Hotel & Spa Skipton, North Yorkshire

If you like your retreats to be historic, elegant, stylish and dripping with luxury, you’re going to fall in love with the fabulous Devonshire Arms Hotel. A country house retreat dating back to the early 17th century, it’s located on the southern edges of the gorgeous Yorkshire Dales National Park. When you feel the need to get away from it all, this place ticks all the right boxes.

There are plenty of things to do locally, starting perhaps with a long, leisurely stroll through the sumptuous Yorkshire Dales. You can head into the exciting city of Leeds for some high end retail therapy and perhaps a chance to explore the Royal Armouries Museum. And if you’re a history buff, make sure you find the time for a trip to the highly impressive Harewood House.

Relaxing without a care in the world is so easy at the Devonshire Arms Hotel, where four peaceful treatment rooms are on hand to soothe you. The gym is perfect for all standards, and there’s a superb restaurant bringing you a whole host of mouth-watering temptations.

Staff friendly relaxing experience

Bernadette ARKINS, West Yorkshire

I would recommend the Devonshire arms. It's calm and friendly atmosphere makes it a wonderful relaxing Spa day. Staff were attentive but not intrusive and were very welcoming. My daughter and I had a lovely day now I have to repeat the experience with my other daughter she has heard all about it so no doubt I will be re-visiting soon. Bernadette

A haven of relaxation

Janet Myers, Silsden

The Devonshire Spa is a haven for complete relaxation. The staff are very welcoming and very friendly. The treatment rooms are most inviting and offer a relaxed ambience for whichever treatment you choose. The treatments are first class and I can guarantee you will leave the spa feeling totally relaxed and very pampered. The beds in the treatment rooms are the best I have come across they are just so comfy. I would confidently recommend the Devonshire Spa to anyone, you won't be disappointed and why not treat yourself to an indulgent afternoon tea in the Hotel lounge - it's like stepping back in time, a real treat to round off a perfect day. Go on ..... spoil yourself ............... I would!
