Find a hotel

North Yorkshire is the largest county by land mass in England, so it’s hardly surprising that it’s also filled with rich history, landmarks and activities. One of the best ways to experience the culture of the region is by finding a new home away from home in one of our country pub hotels in North Yorkshire.

From Knaresborough Castle to Mother Shipton’s Cave, you can travel all across the county to experience sprawling green landscapes, vibrant beaches and rolling hills. And when you visit one of the many towns and cities dotted across North Yorkshire, you’ll find museums, galleries, cinemas and parks, everything you could want – whether you’re a local or a tourist.

In key positions on the North Yorkshire map, our pub hotels act as stepping stones between key landmarks, trails and experiences. You can look forward to getting snug as a bug within the warm embrace of a duvet at the end of a long day. Not to mention devouring classic British dishes served in pubs that likely have as much history as the areas they’re in.


The best country pub hotels in North Yorkshire

Because it’s such a vast county, each country pub hotel in Yorkshire offers a wholly different view of the landscape. Our pub hotels have an array of historic and beautiful landmarks a short distance away from each for you to explore before coming back to fall into bed.

A countryside retreat

Tucked away in the small town of Guisborough, the Cross Keys hotel is a 19th-century country inn in North Yorkshire that’s surrounded by lush countryside, old railway tracks and moorlands. This hotel is equidistant from the historic ruins of Guisborough Priory, the National Trust’s Ormesby Hall, Dorman Museum, Saltburn cliff tramway and the Captain Cook School Museum. And, outside of using the Cross Keys as a base camp for your exploration, you can relax and unwind with some freshly prepared food and drink at the end of, or throughout, your day.


In the heart of the North

In the shadow of Richmond Castle, the old market town of Masham houses the Kings Head country pub hotel. Here, you can expect a bustling pub atmosphere downstairs and a calming, dog-friendly rest in one of the 27 en-suite bedrooms upstairs. And whether you’re visiting for work or leisure, you’ll be happy to know that the Kings Head is the ideal spot to hop between local attractions like Black Sheep Brewery, Thirsk Museum and Thirsk racecourse.
