Family Hotels Yorkshire – I am always on the look out for good family friendly hotels in Yorkshire. The ones that really cater to children and families, not just the ones that will allow the kids to stay in your room with you but don’t provide anything family friendly at all.
Family Hotels Yorkshire
Yorkshire is such a beautiful place and there are so many things to do and places to visit, it’s lovely to have a gorgeous hotel to come back to at the end of the day. So, here are some I have stayed in and some I am hoping to stay in!
Hurworth – on the County Durham/North Yorkshire Border.
Hotels don’t come much more family friendly than Rockliffe Hall. It’s a lovely, luxury hotel that welcomes children. Have a look at ‘Misch-Masch’ in the hotel grounds. It’s a series for quirky wooden pods that each house something different. In one you will find a pool table, and in another you will find a cinema where you can relax on their leather bucket chairs and watch your favourite films. Nearby you will find an excellent adventure playground. The hotel also has a very large swimming pool, hydro pool and spa. We visited the spa while a child minder looked after the kids (and they loved it!). See my full review of Rockliffe Hall here.
Scarborough, North Yorkshire.
If you are looking for something a bit more upmarket in Scarborough, then the Crown Spa Hotel could be for you. We stayed with the children in a large room with a small room leading off it, with two single beds and their own flatscreen TV. It was an ideal set up and much better for younger families than adjoining rooms – the only door from their room led into our room and not into the hotel corridor. There is a pool that is included. They have family swim times (two three hour sessions, twice a day). The restaurant have a children’s menu and children were welcomed into the restaurant. See my full review with lots of photos of the room and the food here. There is lots to do in Scarborough for the kids too.
Centre of York, North Yorkshire.
Located on Skeldergate in the centre of York this would be a great hotel to stay with the children. A very easy walk to all the York attractions but not on the noisiest street. Several of their rooms will cater for children and they get good reviews for their family friendly nature on TripAdvisor. (as an aside, my Mum worked here in the 80’s – not that it’s related of course! 🙂 )
Leeds, West Yorkshire
I am very impressed with the emphasis Oulton Hall gives to their family friendliness. They have a page outlining their provision here. They provide foldaway beds, cots, high chairs, booster seats, and interconnecting family rooms. Check out their ‘Quality Time’ package – “Treat the whole family to some quality family time, with a two night break, milk and cookies before bed, full English breakfast, and a whole host of games and activities to choose from. PLUS, we’ll include a 2-day family ticket to Lotherton Hall.” “Highlights for the kids include activity packs, splash times in our indoor swimming pool and junior golf with tuition at the academy, while the adults can enjoy a treatment (or two) in our spa.”
Beverley, East Yorkshire
This is the hotel nearest to us and is set near the beautiful Yorkshire Wolds. “Room 20, our ‘Family of 4’ is the perfect space for a getaway with the tribe. Nesting at the end of our farmhouse wing, it flaunts a welly worthy entrance porch, a when-the-sunshines table and chairs, a separate snug complete with a sofa bed for two, a king size bed and a family bathroom; shower and bath included. What more do you need?”
