Sitting above the picturesque mid-Wharfedale village of Burnsall, the aptly named Devonshire Fell Hotel enjoys some of the finest views of this glorious Yorkshire Dales valley. Below sit the village's pretty stone cottages wrapped around the River Wharfe while above stretch fields, latticed with dry-stone walls, rising to fells. It makes a great base for walking. Part of the Bolton Abbey Estate, owned by the Duke of Devonshire (of Chatsworth fame), the Victorian-built hotel surprises with its bold and colourful interiors plus its collection of art, much drawn from the family collection. Bedrooms are light and fresh while the dining room serves up robust Modern British dishes. Dogs are made very welcome, and there's free access to the nearby sister hotel's spa.



Being able to walk out of the hotel and down to the river for walks in either direction (part of the Dales Way long-distance path) is a joy, particularly if you manage to spot a kingfisher!

The Devonshire Fell is located 1 mile from the viallge of Burnsall, with all its shops and restaurants.
By car; 230miles from London and 56 miles from Manchester. Parking is available on site.
By train; Leeds station with direct links to London Kings Cross is 29 miles away.

Style & Character

Walkers who like their creature comforts will enjoy it here, as will anyone wanting to explore the Yorkshire Dales with a dog-friendly hotel, rather than a pub, as a base - and with access to a spa. We love the mix of artworks; big and bold modern art hang alongside more traditional gilt-framed landscapes.

Service & Facilities

We love coming back from a walk and being able to take a refreshing cup of tea in the conservatory.
