Blue Lion 2021 ~ Temporary Closure...

Following the recent government announcement putting North Yorkshire into Tier 3 we will be closed from Thursday 31 December 2020.

We are planning to remain closed during January and February and will re-open on 1 March 2021, if government guidelines allow.

All reservations made for stays or dinner during the closure have been automatically cancelled.

If you have any queries, please contact us via email on, and we will aim to reply as soon as possible.

Thank you for your continued support during this difficult time, and we sincerely look forward to seeing you again in 2021.

Best Wishes

Paul and Helen

There are fifteen English country-styled rooms at The Blue Lion, all a testament to the original character of this Yorkshire Inn


Petite Double

Both of these rooms have double beds, with the rooms positioned at the rear of the Inn, one with views across Wensleydale. Whilst they are our smallest rooms, they are both homely for a relaxing stay. These are often the preferred choice by visitors for single occupancy. Your dog friend is welcome to join you in this room choice

B&B £105.00

Midweek DBB £165.00

Classic Double

Each has been individually designed in a range of country interiors reflecting our 18th Century Inn. Our double rooms are all larger than the petite doubles. There is a choice of staying in the original main house or across the courtyard in the converted stables, where your dog is most welcome too!

B&B £125.00

Large Classic

These beautiful bedrooms full of character, with an eclectic mix of country furniture and artifacts from a bygone era, provides a quintessential English Inn stay. These charming rooms are larger than our doubles and are most popular with all guests. Some have wonderful views across the village to the stunning dales beyond. These are dog friendly rooms.

Each room has its own unique design; it might take a couple of visits before you can decide on your favourite! When choosing your room you might also like to bring your four-legged friend, as we are dog friendly. Pleasecall us to chat through the options.

The rooms are split between the main house and the converted stables, which once housed the horses for travelling traders through Wensleydale. Some rooms have exposed beams and all have either an en-suite bathroom or shower room, together with in-room tea and coffee facilities and all are decorated with comfortable country furnishings for a “get away from it all” relaxing stay.

Simply wonderful overnight stay with our 3 dogs in a spacious and immaculate room. Devine food for both a coeliac and vegetarian. Great friendly staff and service. Lovely cosy bar area with open fire. Could have stayed forever!
