The Devonshire Arms Hotel & Spa is the perfect couples escape, whether you are looking for a relaxing spa break or a more adventurous active holiday for two, the gateway to the Yorkshire Dales has it all.

You and your partner can expect the warmest Yorkshire hospitality, whether visiting for a special occasion, anniversary or just a romantic getaway, our staff go the extra mile to make your visit a memorable one.

Start your stay with a pre-dinner stroll along the River Wharfe and catch the last of the sun streaming through the ruins of Bolton Abbey Priory, by far the most magical time of day to visit, before returning for a romantic meal for two. Couples can enjoy a pre-dinner drink in the relaxed cocktail lounge before indulging in an intimate tasting menu by candlelight in the award-winning Burlington Restaurant. Or perhaps sharing a mouth-watering Chateaubriand in the Brasserie is more your style, whatever your taste there is something for everyone in the hotels' two on-site restaurants.

After tucking into a hearty Yorkshire breakfast you can both enjoy a relaxed morning in the Spa. Why not upgrade your spa access and enjoy a Rasul chamber experience for two, perfect for couples, complete with revitalising and refreshing infused mineral muds? For the more adventurous of couples, there are over 80 miles of footpaths and iconic scenery to be explored from the doorstep of the hotel! The iconic five arched bridge at Burnsall is the perfect spot for a picnic by the river, just a short drive from the hotel. Further up the Wharfedale Valley are the popular North Yorkshire tourist destinations of Grassington and Kettlewell, just waiting to be explored. The historic market town of Skipton is also only a ten-minute drive away, where you can explore the medieval Skipton Castle and tranquil canal paths, or browse the quaint streets and shops.
