Modern life often gets in the way of spending quality time with your family, so what better way to escape than to the adventure playground that is the Yorkshire Dales? With 30,000 acres on the doorstep, The Devonshire Arms Hotel and Spa is perfectly placed for a family getaway.

Be it an overnight stay or long weekend, the Bolton Abbey Estate has so much to be explored, by both old and young adventure seekers! You’ll be spoilt for choice when it comes to filling your days come rain or shine, whether it be a dip in the pool at The Devonshire Spa’s allocated children’s splash time each day, or simply a walk in nature on the nearby ‘Welly Walk’ at Bolton Abbey. Just a few minutes’ drive away is Hesketh Farm Park where families can explore a working farm, meeting the farm animals and enjoying the indoor play barn. Further up the Wharfedale Valley is the charming village of Burnsall, the home of the iconic five arched bridge and village green, which is a popular spot for a family picnic and paddle in summer. The nearby market town of Skipton also offers a range of family activities, including one of the most complete and best-preserved medieval castles in England - well worth a visit at any time of the year.

The relaxed Brasserie restaurant is the perfect place to refuel after a busy day out. Our comprehensive children’s menu offers all the little one’s favourites, from chicken and chips to sausage and mash, you’ll have to resist not helping them out! The standard of children’s food was recently described as ‘the best we’ve ever experienced’ by travel blogger Holly Goes Lightly.

Our comfortable bedrooms* are big enough to accommodate everyone for a one night break or even a half term staycation and friendly staff are on hand to deal with any requests and special requirements, from the cot in your bedroom to the warm milk delivered to your door, ensuring your stay is as stress-free as possible.

If you're looking for a self-catering holiday cottage for your staycation, we have several properties in out Bolton Abbey Collection, complete with hot tubs, log-burning stoves and views you'll always remember. And don’t forget, we are also dog-friendly – meaning no one gets left behind on your family break to North Yorkshire!
