Our Inspector's view

Set in beautiful parkland, Rudding Park dates from the early 19th century and the interiors are stylishly contemporary and elegant. The bedrooms are luxurious – the Follifoot Wing features stunning suites and bedrooms with spas. Carefully prepared meals are served in the relaxed Clocktower which has a striking pink chandelier as its centrepiece, and the stylish bar and conservatory lead to a generous terrace which is perfect for eating alfresco. Then there’s Horto (Latin for 'kitchen garden') which showcases produce from the hotel's own kitchen garden to produce innovative, award-winning dishes. The grandeur of the mansion house and grounds make this a popular wedding venue; there’s also an impressive spa with treatment rooms, a gym, private cinema and extensive conference facilities, plus an adjoining 18-hole, par 72 golf course, and driving range.

About the area

Discover North Yorkshire

North Yorkshire, with its two National Parks and two designated Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, is England’s largest county and one of the most rural. This is prime walking country, from the heather-clad heights of the North York Moors to the limestone country that is so typical of the Yorkshire Dales – a place of contrasts and discoveries, of history and legend.

The coastline offers its own treasures, from the fishing villages of Staithes and Robin Hood Bay to Scarborough, one time Regency spa and Victorian bathing resort. In the 1890s, the quaint but bustling town of Whitby provided inspiration for Bram Stoker, who set much of his novel, Dracula, in the town. Wizarding enthusiasts head to the village of Goathland, which is the setting for the Hogwarts Express stop at Hogsmeade station in the Harry Potter films.

York is a city of immense historical significance. It was capital of the British province under the Romans in AD 71, a Viking settlement in the 10th century, and in the Middle Ages its prosperity depended on the wool trade. Its city walls date from the 14th century and are among the finest in Europe. However, the gothic Minster, built between 1220 and 1470, is York’s crowning glory.
