Two of Yorkshire’s hotels have been included in The Times’ best hotels for spring, which look for ways to embrace the season with a break amid ‘blooming borders, meadows or cherry trees’.
We are in the midst of spring and the weather is starting to pick up, which means it’s time to start to think about getting out for adventures, including walks, hikes, and pub visits.
The two hotels included in the list were named in some of the top places to stay in the North of England and we think they’ve been picked well.
First on the list is The West Park in Harrogate, which sits across from the famous Stray, which is in full flower with its cherry blossoms trees.
The Times noted the ‘200-acre parkland fronting the town’s Regency and Victorian architecture’ as pulls for this hotel. The West Park Hotel is known for its food due to its award-winning menu which changes with the season with food picked partly from the kitchen garden and the region’s artisans.
And after looking at the hotel’s Sunday roast, we can see what they’re talking about. The Yorkshire puddings look blooming lovely and cauliflower cheese.
The AA 4-star hotel has had a huge refurbishment over lockdown which has seen the whitewashed hotel that faces onto the Stray transformed into a lush boutique stay

A stay at the West Park Hotel is £112 per night for a double room.
Next, we are heading to the Yorkshire Wolds in East Yorkshire with Tickton Grange Country Hotel, which is a stone’s throw from the East Coast where you can head to Bempton Cliffs to watch the puffins and Flamborough Head for some stunning coastal views.
Check out the puffins at Bempton cliff below:
The Times enjoyed the ‘relaxed country house hotel with simple rooms in pretty greys, greens and blues, surrounded by 16 acres of gardens, meadows and woodlands, it’s a good base for exploring renowned spring flower displays at Sledmere House, Burton Agnes Hall, Burton Constable Hall and Sewerby Hall. Or, slightly further away, the walled gardens at Scampston Hall and Helmsley.’
A stay at Tickton Grange would set you back £125 per night for a double room.
