The Experience

You’ll feel instantly at home here with either Andy or Louise at the helm aided by a happy team of staff. Huge sliding glass doors allow guests to spill out from the restaurant into the pretty streamside garden. Malham is a mecca for walkers with the famous cove just under a mile away and Janet’s Foss, Gordale scar and the Tarn not much further.

This is some of the most stunning and remote countryside in the UK and it’s great for cycling as well as striding. Wild swimmers will be happy too with rivers, lakes and waterfalls to hurl themselves into. And dogs will love it all as much as their owners.

Gird your loins for wonderful food: this is the UKs first plant-based hotel and everything is fresh, seasonal and from the Dales. Try delicious breakfasts of fluffy American style pancakes with berry compote, Chai Latte Porridge and their Beck Hall Full (plant-based) English. The restaurant is also open to the public and very popular. Sleep well in comfortable bedrooms, all very different, all beautifully dressed, and dog-friendly too – beds, mats and bowls can be provided for your hound.

A really lovely place to stay. All the staff want you to have a great time. Our bed was extremely comfortable and the room was very pretty. The food is excellent. Also, we were made to feel very welcome with our dog. The village is very busy so it's great that you can use the hotel car park earlier than the check in time and later the next day. As soon as we left, I booked again.

Sally, Grantham

We have been staying at Beck Hall for at least 5yrs, and loved every minute, but this was the first time we had been since the new management took over, and the extensions built, and I was a bit apprehensive in case the had lost the character, I needn’t have worried, I didn’t think you could improve on perfection, but Andy, Louise, Linda and all the staff have managed to do that. I am so looking forward to visiting again this October. See you on the 2nd. Highly recommend.

The neighbourhood

Malham has a post office, a few pubs and footpaths galore over the Dales. The nearest shop to buy food is Townend Farm Shop, just over two miles away but a pleasant walk. Settle is less than twenty minutes by car and there you can get on the scenic railway to Carlisle, which takes about four hours there and back but whisks you through some stunning scenery. Skipton (11 miles) is a thriving market town with lots of interesting history and a castle to visit.

Local points of interest from Andy & Louise Macbeth

  • Built in 1705 as a yeoman’s cottage, Beck Hall became a “wayfarers’ hostel” in the 1930s under the ownership of an adventurous explorer called Mr Hardacre.
  • Whilst wandering through “wildest Yorkshire” he stumbled upon “the most quaint of cottages” that seemed “forlorn and forgotten”, according to hotel literature of the time.
  • Over the years, this quaint, riverside cottage has grown into a 21-bedroom hotel and restaurant.
  • Beck Hall’s streamside location and Yorkshire Dales wildlife have inspired the whimsical interiors. Many of Mr Hardacre’s prized artefacts from his travels have been incorporated into the décor.
  • Spring 2018 brought the launch of the new restaurant and two guest rooms as well as the introduction of a whimsical afternoon tea and a new sustainable menu offering the best of local ingredients.
  • Beck Hall is proudly openly dog-friendly and which dogs are loved, not just tolerated, and allowed in all areas of the hotel & restaurant
