A luxurious five-star Yorkshire coaching inn in one of England's loveliest National Parks, with breakfast, a three-course dinner and more

Nestling at the foot of Yorkshire’s famous three peaks – Pen-y-ghent, Ingleborough and Whernside – The New Inn at Clapham provides an idyllic base for launching off on wholesome countryside walks, hikes and steam railway adventures.

Beginning life as a farmhouse and evolving into a coaching inn in the 18th century, the historic boutique hotel is an ongoing labour of love for the Benson family, who continue to uncover incredible original features at every turn. Many of the charming bedrooms feature exposed beams, window seats or river views. All of them have been designed with a contemporary neutral colour palette, which beautifully highlights the rooms’ old world characteristics.

After a gentle walk to nearby Ingleborough Cave and Gaping Gill, or a slightly more strenuous hike to the top of Ingleborough itself, make a beeline for the cosy bar. Choose from a range of locally brewed cask ales, carefully selected single malts and Fairtrade Clipper teas, before plumping for one of the tempting British classics on the Bistro menu. The food – along the likes of king prawns, North Sea cod loin and lemon posset – is so good that booking is essential. The New Inn scored a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence.
