Cheers

Shallowdale House a bit too intimate/small. Would like to be a bit more anonymous IYSWIM

< madly googling >

Had forgotten about the Trough of Bowland. Gorgeous area. I suppose we could up to Lancaster and back down on the Sat night and home from there.

Have heard of the Inn at Whitewell. £208 for one night's B+B is a bit steep though, bearing in mind we will be paying for a meal and drinks on top of that shock

Are you prepared to consider a posh B&B rather than a hotel? If so, Shallowdale House in Ampleforth is terrific. They do dinner which doesn't have a choice of menu (though they would take into account if you don't like something and check what they're planning is ok) but is cooked really well.
They have an alcohol license too.

Somewhere else we went recently that was good - we camped at the Aysgarth Falls Hotel and had dinner in the restaurant, and based on how good the food was and how generally lovely the staff were the rooms are probably nice too. It used to be rubbish but re-opened with swish decor and food but reasonable prices.

Just had a look though and wow! They've put the prices up since I was last there!

Don't know if it's a bit out of the area you're looking for but The Inn At Whitewell is seriously good.

another bump for another day

am still looking, have one of two of your suggestions up my sleeve so far (most don't do one night)

HappyHalloweenMotherFucker Mon 29-Oct-12 21:56:48

bump ?

HappyHalloweenMotherFucker Mon 29-Oct-12 20:17:00

wow, thanks everybody, my googling can't keep up !

Or l'enclume in cartmel?

VivaLeBeaver Mon 29-Oct-12 20:09:53

If its last minute I'd ring up places even if they say minimum 2 nights. Surely if they have empty rooms they won't turn money away?

Ktay Mon 29-Oct-12 20:09:22

Oops sorry twentyten, slow typing. Have heard good things about drunken duck too.

ajandjjmum Mon 29-Oct-12 20:09:10

I like Lakeside too.

cathpip Mon 29-Oct-12 20:06:14

How about the Crab and Lobster near thirsk in North Yorks, its a restaurant with a manor house that does themed luxury rooms . I was taken for my 30th and would highly recommend, could'nt comment on price though!!

Ktay Mon 29-Oct-12 20:06:00

How about the Lakeside Hotel near Windermere? It's been several years since I stayed there but it was lovely.

HappyHalloweenMotherFucker Mon 29-Oct-12 20:05:49

Whitby a bit too far over as we are near Lancaster the Friday evening before (up from Manchester area)

was looking to push on up into Lakes or a small jump over into Yorks

HappyHalloweenMotherFucker Mon 29-Oct-12 20:04:30

I googled Crathorne and it came up with "Hand Picked Hotels"

it looks lovely, and there was also another one nr Wetherby, the "Wood Hall" that does a champagne DBB for £230

Feversham Arms in Helmsley

twentyten Mon 29-Oct-12 20:02:44

Drunken Duck?Lakeside Hotel on windermere?

Judges is nice, similar price to Crathorne. If you stay at one of those hotels you could get a taxi to Yarm and eat there - lots of choice.

I stayed at Aldwark manor recently, it was very nice and there is a pub very near by (2 minutes walk!) that did gorgeous food, would highly recommend.

I have heard that the Black Swan in Helsmley is lovely.

We've just come back from Raithwaite Hall in Whitby and it was incredible. It has a spa, beautiful gardens, excellent food and a short walk to Sandsend which is a gorgeous unspoilt beach. Oh and the moors.

irton hall in Eskdale is lovely. Just spent a night in the Clock Tower and it was fabulous.

I was looking for a bit more luxury, tbh (on this occasion)

Not muddy boots and a pint of scrumpy grin

HappyHalloweenMotherFucker Mon 29-Oct-12 19:54:44

2 nights minimum sad
