Our Inspector's view
Dating from the start of the 17th century, Yorebridge House is set in the former headmaster’s house of the old grammar school. Today, the buildings make a living as a fine country hotel, with the Yorkshire Dales unfolding all around. The public areas and guest rooms have been decorated to perfection, while an understated neutral contemporary style fits the bill in the dining room. Dan Shotton and his brigade champion the region’s produce in menus that reflect ambition and a desire to impress via modern British ideas executed with skill and creativity, but without undue complication. The kitchen’s flair for comforting, intuitive flavour combinations is clear from the off, as when beef carpaccio is teamed with celeriac and shimeji mushrooms. Intense flavours show up in mains, in well-balanced combinations of, say, Wensleydale lamb with turnips, or Nidderdale chicken with girolles and broccoli. If you’re an aficionado of rhubarb, you're in the right county, and could find it teaming up with wood pigeon. The finale might be based on luxuriant 72% chocolate accessorised with honeycomb and cherry sorbet.

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.
