Tucked away in a quiet location in Otley, West Yorkshire, Chevin Country Park Hotel teleports you to Swiss Alps – without having to leave Yorkshire.
Transforming you to a getaway that rivals the Alps (without the snow and ski slopes, of course), this unique destination is the UK’s largest log cabin, with the whole resort offering up 16 rooms in the giant log cabin, with 32 smaller log cabins available to stay in. Each room and cabin is decked out with idyllic, alpine-style decor – with wooden ceilings and walls, cosy checks and heritage fabrics. The warm vibe will have you feeling like there’s a blanket of snow outside, all while you snuggle up in your temporary humble abode.
Surrounded by 44 acres of Yorkshire woodland, guests can expect the feeling of remoteness during their stay, with forest and lake views to take in while you breath in the fresh, Yorkshire air. Though it’ll feel like you’ve completely escaped from society, the historic town of Otley is close by, with attractions such as Harewood House, Cottage Road Cinema, the set of Emmerdale and Chevin Forest Park all nearby to explore. Travellers with dogs are in luck too, as the Chevin Country Park Hotel is dog-friendly – charging just £12 for your pup to stay with you for the night.
The spa is a relaxing haven, continuing the hotel’s alpine charm with all the leisure facilities you could hope for (including the beautiful pool!) and treatments including massages, facials and more. On-site is a woodland health club, too, where guests can take part in a workout before winding down in the thermal suite.
As well as being able to explore the great outdoors that Yorkshire has to offer, the hotel also offers up some fine Yorkshire cuisine, with their beautiful lakeside restaurant serving up locally inspired dishes such as lamb, sirloin of beef and venison loin. The restaurant offers an intimate dining experience, with incredible views of the lake and nearby forest. Romantic, huh?
The West Yorkshire spot is perfect for couples, families and groups of friends, with lodges and cabins available for up to six people and options including hotel rooms in the main cabin, or your very own private place on the premises.
As well as a fantastic restaurant, the hotel offers up an apres ski-style lounge, with cosy cabin decor, a lively atmosphere and specially selected beers and wines to enjoy.
