Mid-week dinner bed & breakfast - 2 night offer

Our two night mid-week break is back!

This is our most popular offer - a fantastic two-night, mid-week dinner, bed and breakfast stay, the perfect package for your adventures in the Yorkshire Dales and beyond.

The Blue Lion is superbly situated for breathtaking views and walks in Wensleydale and Swaledale. Escape to a tranquil valley and discover one of the many impressive historical properties - with Jeraulx on our doorstep and nearby Bolton Abbey or Fountains Abbey, you’ll be spoilt for choice. 

If you prefer a more relaxing stroll then explore one of the charming local market towns – Leyburn, Hawes, Richmond or Ripon are some of our guests’ favourites. Oh, and if you’ve got some energy in reserve, don’t miss out on the beautiful spa town of Harrogate, with its lovely boutique shops – you might even spot owner Helen as it’s her favorite place for that special purchase. The stunning Minster city of York is within easy reach, with its famous timber-framed street, The Shambles. Why not combine a city walls walking tour with a leisurely boat trip for a truly magical visit. 

On your return to the Inn, enjoy a refreshing glass of wine or beer in our bar or outside. 

Offer prices start from: £77.50 per person per night, depending on which room you choose and includes a £35.00 dinner allowance per person
