The Experience

You’ll think you’ve washed up in Tuscany or Provence. These gorgeous stone barns were crumbling a few years ago, now they’re home to one of the loveliest hotels in the north. In summer, life spills onto the courtyard for lunch in the sun, but step through the arched glass doors and find a spectacular restaurant open to the rafters, where contemporary design mixes with rustic bricks and mortar. There’s a funky bar, an open fire, a sitting room for guests that opens onto a terrace. Rooms are just as good, with chic fabrics, Roberts radios, super-comfy beds and robes in cool bathrooms. Five open onto a terrace, most have claw-foot baths. Elsewhere, you’ll find a couple of treatment rooms, a two-acre kitchen garden where you can get married, and six beautiful new rooms in the renovated farmhouse. Good food waits, some home-grown, much from Yorkshire, perhaps cured sea trout with horseradish, slow cooked lamb with onion broth, chocolate with caramel and banana ice cream. The Dales wait to the west, the Moors to the east. Don’t miss the Bowes museum in Barnard Castle, a jewel of the north.

I had dinner at the Coach House recently. It's very beautiful in a rustic way. The service was excellent and the food absolutely delicious. I'd eat there again in a heartbeat.

Marina, Mallorca

An excellent venue. Great restaurant, plenty of choice at the bar & rooms really well decorated & equipped. Loved the little private terrace outside our room. Loved the free bikes you can borrow to ride around the estate. Quickest way to get there is to come off at Scotch Corner & go through the village rather than the way your sat nav send you. Not cheap but worth it!

The neighbourhood

Local points of interest from James & Rebecca Allison

  • There is a 3km route around the estate which takes you down through the woodland, past a stream (which only runs when it rains), over a bridge, with magical views past fields of sheep across the Cleveland hills.
  • This area has one of the lowest rainfalls in the country, situated in the Vale of Mowbray between the Yorkshire Dales and Yorkshire Moors which catch most of the rain, so you may well be lucky with the sunshine. If so why not head out into the Dales.
  • We have just completed works on The Kitchen Garden. We now grow seasonal produce and provide a beautiful protected space to wander. The Kitchen Garden now serves as a food source for The Coach House Restaurant.
  • We hold several events across the estate on a weekly basis, from cookery school, design and art workshops, open air theatre and cinema to wine dinners. Our annual events have become renowned for their individuality and creativity.
  • Nearby Richmond has a Norman Castle and keep as well as a Georgian market town. It is the oldest 'Richmond' in the world and all others are named after this one. The Georgian theatre is also the oldest working theatre in the country.
  • The Tack Room is our favourite bedroom. It comes with your own woodburning stove, white timber panelling, a comfy linen sofa to curl up in, an enormous bathroom with mismatched blue & white tiles and a freestanding bath to sink into.
