This luxurious spa retreat in the North York Moors is the perfect place for a relaxing weekend getaway. The décor is traditional with comfy leather sofas, chintzy wallpaper and framed prints covering the walls. The suites even come with wood-burning stoves to snuggle up in front of during the cold winter months. The real reason to stay here, though, is the spa, recommended by Tatler and boasting a sauna, steam room, hot tub and array of relaxing treatments.

2. 42 the Calls, Leeds

If you prefer to be in the heart of the city centre, perfectly positioned for restaurants, shops and bars, then 42 the Calls could be the perfect hotel for you. Housed inside an 18th-century flour mill, the boutique hotel makes use of the building’s original features while featuring a collection of contemporary furniture that keeps everything looking modern. Choose from a variety of rooms and suites, including the particularly impressive penthouse suite that features striking original beams.

Located in the middle of the countryside in Wensleydale, this romantic hotel is perfect for getting away from it all. Seemingly designed for couples (there are no twin rooms), there are free-standing baths and huge rain showers in each suite with love seats and four-poster beds adding to the romantic ambiance. The décor effortlessly fuses traditional English country house interiors with more eclectic elements such as fun pug cushions, vibrant statement furniture and interesting artworks.

Another boutique hotel located in the midst of the beautiful countryside of Yorkshire, Yorebridge House is surrounded by picturesque scenery just begging to be explored. The Victorian Grade-II-listed building sits on five acres of land and is within walking distance of several quaint villages and two beautiful rivers, making it the perfect destination for those who like to get out and explore. The interior perfectly fuses the history of the building with a contemporary edge, focusing on calm spaces that are ideal for relaxing.

If you like the treat of staying in a boutique hotel in Yorkshire but are looking for something a little different, Swinton Bivouac could be the perfect place. Located near Masham in the Yorkshire Dales, this is glamping at its finest with a collection of yurts and wooden lodges to choose from. All the accommodations have running water, wood burners and comfortable beds, but there’s no electricity, and the yurts have shared bathrooms. It might not be the height of luxury, but it’s definitely the right way to combine boutique accommodation with a countryside retreat.

6. Natural Retreats Yorkshire Dales, Kirby Hill

Eco Hotel, Cabin

The striking structures fuse traditional wooden cabins with a modernist twist, the glass-fronted living spaces offering plenty of space for relaxing in the evening and admiring the countryside views. The stylish living rooms are all designed around the glass-front of the buildings, offering spectacular vistas of the surrounding landscapes, while wooden decks offer the perfect place to sit and relax during the warmer months.
