A scenic smothering of ivy covers the Georgian façade of Wood Hall Hotel in Wetherby, with the guest rooms exhibiting a similar Regency aesthetic.

Complimenting the classic features are a modern gym and Nuffield Health club.

History echoes through the corridors of this 17th-century hotel – Harrogate’s first. Today, the rooms offset the building’s heritage with a vibrant and contemporary design, although stylish touches such as vintage telephones remain.

Having triumphed on the hit Channel 4 show Four in a Bed, Newton House is no stranger to award-winning hospitality, which it provides from a beautiful Georgian house in the Yorkshire town of Knaresborough. Rooms have a classic look – some with four-poster beds, and others with period features such as wooden beams – and the famous breakfasts make good use of produce grown either on-site or nearby.

Sitting right in the gorgeous Capability Brown-designed grounds of Harewood Estate, these former farm workers’ cottages are not as grand as the house itself, but just as lovely. Farmhouse furniture, rough-hewn stone fireplaces and cosy living areas with big, comfy sofas will give you a stately stay. The cottages are powered by renewable energy and offer endless opportunities to explore the beautiful estate – the Buddhism-inspired Harewood Stupa is close by, along with the woodland trails around the beautiful fish pond.
