Quick Intro : Making history our home!
Back In spring 2010 we (Elaine and Mike) took over this beautiful building in the hope of returning it back to its former glory, as over many years it had been rather neglected! We have plunged all our efforts into to restoring the building and grounds as quickly as funds have permitted. Due to the size of the building and its grounds (28 acres) this has been no small task! We thrive on a challenge and will continue to endeavour no matter what. Given the beautiful location, history and character, it would have been a tragedy to let this building slip away.
General Info: We are as we state a ‘small family’ business, not a corporate hotel, so please do not expect a corporate hotel experience. We aim to give a homely feel to the place and we are always on hand to help out with any of your needs. Our aim is to offer a more personal service, comfortable accommodation, real ales, tasty food and entertainment you wont forget.
Once belonging to the Arch Bishop of York and rumoured to have once belonged to King Henry VIII, Harefield Hall is nestled amongst 28 acres of woodland in beautiful Nidderdale, North Yorkshire. A 10 minute stroll takes you to the heart of Nidderdale, the bustling market town of Pateley Bridge. Nidderdale boasts many striking features such as Howstean Gorge, Brimham Rocks and Fountains Abbey, making this area of outstanding natural beauty a must see for any of the visitors to the Dales.
Harefield Hall is the ideal place to get away from it all and relax. Take advantage of our lounge bar with real log fire, reception lounge and hall dining room.
For the more energetic there are endless miles of country walks with spectacular views, cave walks and horse riding. We also offer private fishing on the river Nidd.
