The Bolton Abbey Estate and the Yorkshire Dales
The Devonshire Fell hotel in Yorkshire is on the edge of the Duke of Devonshire’s 50 square mile Bolton Abbey Estate in the Yorkshire Dales National Park. It is one of the most beautiful, unspoilt and unexploited landscapes in England, with historic castles, picture-perfect villages and stately homes it can only be described as a perfect location.
- 80 miles of footpaths and hiking trails through ancient woodland and heather moors.
- 6 miles of river.
- 12th century Augustinian Priory ruins at Bolton Abbey.
- Dramatic hill country (the fells) and river gorges (the dales).
There are also two UNESCO World Heritage sites within a short drive of the Bolton Abbey Estate – Fountains Abbey with Studley Royal Park, and Saltaire Village.
