Our vegan afternoon tea offers a great opportunity for vegans and non-vegans alike to enjoy mouthwatering savouries and sandwiches including roasted vegetable quiche, falafel balls with sweet chilli dip, ‘sausage’ rolls and a selection of tasty sandwiches. We can promise that your sweet tooth will absolutely love our salted caramel tart, fresh fruit tart, chocolate fudge cake and fresh fruit smoothie. Delicious!

Our bar menu also now includes a range of delicious vegan options, including roasted red beetroot risotto, Senegalese peanut curry or falafel burger. Perfect for enjoying a meal with friends or family!

Tour de Yorkshire

World-class cycling comes to Skipton – again!

The perfect Yorkshire hotel for cycling fans

Following on from the crucial role Skipton played in the Grand Depart of the 2014 Tour de France, we’re absolutely delighted that the 2018 Tour de Yorkshire will once again pass through our town on Sunday 6 May.

Appropriately nicknamed ‘The Yorkshire Terrier’, stage four starts Halifax’s spectacular and newly restored Piece Hall, before passing through Hebden Bridge and Haworth. Skipton is the next stop before the cyclists have to tackle Barden Moor and the challenging climbs of the Yorkshire Dales.

Skipton is a fantastic place to watch world-class cycling such as this and as fans will know, the spectacle of professional cyclists speeding through the town centre is pretty hard to beat. Our hotel is located on the outskirts of Skipton on the bank of the town’s picturesque canal and is the ideal base from which to watch all the cycling action. We’re just a short walk from the town centre and thanks to our commitment to welcoming cyclists; we can provide you with secure cycle storage if you’re planning on brining your own bike.

Dedicated fans of the Tour de Yorkshire will doubtless already know that Stage 2 of the race on Friday 4 May will pass through the nearby towns of Otley and Ilkley, so if you’re planning on joining us to watch Stage 4, why not make a weekend of it and enjoy two days of cycle racing?

Cycle friendly hotel accommodation in Yorkshire

As we’ve already mentioned, our hotel is widely recognised as being cycle-friendly and by staying with us, we can provide you with a wide range of facilities and services, including secure bike storage and packed lunches available on request.

Skipton makes a great base from which to explore the beautiful Yorkshire Dales on two wheels, with hundreds of miles of stunning cycle routes suitable for road cyclists and mountain bikers alike. From challenging hill climbs through to low-level flat routes ideal for beginners, the Yorkshire Dales has something for everyone.
