Travel restrictions might be holding us back this year, but helping us experience the world like no other is Crab Manor Hotel – a luxury North Yorkshire retreat that’s taken some of the most iconic and special places in the world, and piled them all under one roof for us Yorkshire folk to enjoy.
And no, we’re not talking a bunch of trinkets in a museum. Bringing the literal experience to Thirsk, the 5-star hotel has gone above and beyond to provide exotic experiences that wow guests – with every dream ‘holiday’ you could think of under their 20-bedroom roof.
Whisking us off to almost every destination on our bucket list, the Crab Manor Hotel has an array of styles to choose from, with inspirations including Lake Como, Beijing, Seychelles, Norway and even Tahiti if you fancy bringing a slice of paradise to North Yorkshire for your trip.
Decked out with luxurious furnishings that directly nod to their inspiration, each room is as unique as the next – with no holding back when it comes to the finer things in life. Relaxin rooms draped in linen a la Bora Bora, feel like a royal in a gold-dusted Italiano-inspired room, or even transport yourself to your own suite in ‘Las Vegas’ – complete with its very own hot tub.
The rooms replicate some of the most famous rooms around the world – The Ritz included – with everything you’d need to fulfil your dream staycation while international travel is off the table.
Think roll-top bathtubs, deluxe rain showers and private hot tubs, with an award-winning restaurant on-site to enjoy, too. Holding two AA Rosettes, the gorgeous, cosy restaurant offers up ‘unpretentious’ dining – perfect for winding down after a day exploring York and North Yorkshire.
Think Lobster and Yorkshire beef served with locally sourced produce, with plenty of options for fish fans, meat lovers and vegans, too.
Room prices start at £165 per night, and you can find out more (as well as browse the fantastic themed rooms) here.
