Skipton Cycle Races 2017

Skipton’s annual town centre cycle race is due to take place on Wednesday 5th July and offers an unmissable opportunity to watch cyclists compete on a fast 1km circuit.

Featuring a fun race for under 12s, youth racing and an elite men’s race, Skipton Cycle Races have become an incredibly popular fixture in the town’s sporting calendar. Following part of the routes visited by the 2014 Grand Depart and the Tour de Yorkshire, the race circuit starts at the top of the High Street before travelling onto Water Street, Coach Street and Swadford Steet.

The spectator-friendly race circuit offers lots of great places to enjoy a view of the action and with a picture postcard backdrop of Skipton Castle and town centre, what better way to enjoy an evening of super-fast road cycling?

For further information including race timings and car parking details, please visit Skipton Cycle Races website.

Skipton Sheep Day 2017

Skipton’s annual Sheep Day takes place this weekend and as one of the town’s most popular events, is well worth a visit.

Skipton Sheep Day is held each year to celebrate Skipton’s heritage – Skipton is ‘Sceap Tun’ in Anglo Saxon, meaning Sheep Town.

‘Sheep Shows’ will be held throughout the day along with a wide range of activities and attractions including dog and duck displays, a petting zoo, birds of prey and rare breed sheep displays. There will also be a selection of stalls, countryside arts, crafts and sideshows.

Skipton Sheep Day will be held on Sunday 2 July and is a free event. Further details can be found by visiting Welcome to Skipton’s website.

Fans of music and the arts will love Grassington Festival and this weekend sees the grand finale with a performance by 80s pop legends Bananarama. Packed full of fantastic live music events, talks and guided walks, Grassington Festival is held every June and continues to go from strength to strength.

The Rendezvous Hotel’s weddings in Yorkshire

The wedding season is well underway here at the Rendezvous Hotel but if you’re thinking ahead and in the process of planning your big day, we’re already taking bookings for 2018.

As a leading wedding venue in Yorkshire, we’ve been helping couples plan their dream day for many years now and as we can accommodate weddings of all sizes, we’d love to help you arrange yours. We know that every wedding is unique though and we’ll work closely with you to organise a truly special event that’s as individual as you are.

Every Rendezvous wedding has a wedding coordinator who’ll arrange those extra-special touches; from colour coordinated fresh flowers, through to table decorations, music, menus and a master of ceremonies. We are licensed for civil ceremonies and if you’d like to get married here at the hotel, we’d be delighted to help arrange that too.

We can offer a range of beautifully furnished function suites, with options suitable for small, intimate weddings, through to larger ceremonies. We’ll discuss the perfect seating arrangement with you, or if you’d prefer a buffet-style wedding breakfast, our team will be happy to help.

The Rendezvous Hotel is located on the bank of the picturesque canal in the pretty market town of Skipton. Our wonderful location offers the perfect backdrop for your wedding photos but if the sun isn’t shining on your big day, our impressive curved central staircase is the ideal place for wedding photos.

Yorkshire Dales hotel

Why visit the Yorkshire Dales?

Stay at the Rendezvous Hotel in Yorkshire and make the most of your stay in the beautiful Yorkshire Dales

Although we’re biased, we think there’s no denying that the Yorkshire Dales makes an ideal destination for a fantastic short break or holiday. After all, with so much on offer here in England’s largest county, why go anywhere else?

From outstanding scenery and a fascinating cultural heritage, through to stunning wildlife habitats and pretty market towns and villages, the beautiful Yorkshire Dales National Park really does offer something for everyone.

The Yorkshire Dales offers a surprisingly varied landscape with the rolling hills, green fields and wooded valleys of the Southern Dales and the rugged, dramatic scenery of the Northern Dales.  The Western Yorkshire Dales have a charm all of their own and are dotted with small villages and quaint towns.

Any time of year is a good time to visit the Dales as the fascinating landscapes of the National Park always look stunning, regardless of the seasons. We’d love to welcome you to the Yorkshire Dales and thanks to our fantastic location in Skipton – widely recognised as the ‘Gateway to the Dales’ – we’re within easy reach of all that this beautiful part of the world has to offer.

With high quality hotel accommodation for families, groups, cyclists and walkers, through to executive suites and single rooms, our hotel is a great place to stay for short break or holiday in the stunning Yorkshire Dales.

The perfect break for Bronte fans

Yorkshire hotel in Bronte Country

Perhaps the most famous sisters in literary history, the Charlotte, Emily and Anne Bronte are being celebrated by the start of a five year programme, Bronte 200, to mark the bicentenary of their births. Bronte 200 offers an unbeatable opportunity for lovers of the Bronte sisters and literature alike to take a closer look at the impact that this fascinating family has had upon writing.

With this in mind we’ve taken the opportunity to offer a special Bronte 200 short break package, designed to make it as easy as possible to visit Howarth and the famous Bronte Parsonage whilst staying here at the Rendezvous Hotel.

Bronte 200 special offer

Included in this unmissable offer are a full English breakfast and three course dinner in our Baby Swan Restaurant each evening, full access to our leisure club and swimming pool, free WiFi and parking, two adult tickets to the Bronte Parsonage Museum and two Day Rover tickets for Keighley and Worth Valley Railway. Available for just £130 per couple per night in a standard room from Sunday to Thursdays, or £150 per couple per night in a standard room on Fridays and Saturdays, we think our Bronte 200 short break offer is pretty hard to beat.
