Living North are delighted to have teamed up with Simonstone Hall to allow one lucky reader the chance to win two nights’ dinner, bed and breakfast for two in one of Yorkshire’s most stunning country house hotels.
Simonstone Hall, now under new ownership, is possibly Yorkshire’s ultimate tranquil retreat. Surrounded by some of the most beautiful countryside in England, the hall has just eighteen generously-sized bedrooms, all beautifully furnished with period furniture, soft sofas and the crispest linen sheets.
Just over a mile from Hawes in the very heart of the Yorkshire Dales National Park, the hotel remains in-part a private house and still fulfils its original use as one of the most reputable shooting lodges in the Dales. Once the home of the Earl of Wharncliffe, it offers the very best in Yorkshire hospitality, hosting world-class game shooters, celebrities and public figures.
The new kitchen garden means the menus showcase only the very best in home-grown produce, complementing the locally sourced lamb from the Simonstone Farm under the watchful eye of Head Chef Sean Gobbi. From the award-winning a la carte menu to the renowned afternoon tea, food is served all day in the Brasserie with its panoramic views across the garden to the Dales beyond.
The Hall’s bar with its extensive selection of whiskies, is the ideal place to relax with a drink, or why not sink into a welcoming armchair beside the roaring log fires after a day spent enjoying the most perfect surroundings. There are walks of varying difficulties all within easy reach of the hotel, or you may simply want to enjoy the Hall’s own gardens with resident peacocks Basil and Sybil. Playful red squirrels frequent the garden and deer often make an appearance too. In keeping with the relaxed atmosphere, dogs are welcome at Simonstone Hall and there is a resident Golden Retriever, Crumpet, all too ready to extend an enthusiastic welcome.
