Alfresco Dining

For a truly unforgettable experience, entertain your guests with an Alfresco Dining experience. We have three venues to choose from:

Our charming, period Deerhouse is in the Parkland, just a short walk or drive from the hotel, with views over the turret and surrounding countryside. The Deerhouse is available for a picnic, barbecue meal or private party.

Our rustic Bothy Huts, out on the moors provide breathtaking views of the Yorkshire Dales. They are the perfect setting for an ‘away from it all’ picnic, which can be set up for you in advance by our porters.

Menus for the Bothy Hut and Deerhouse are on the next page.

NEW – Lake Island & House

We have just completed restoration work on Lake Island and House, a private island situated on one of the lakes in the Parkland. Complete with Georgian summerhouse, it is the perfect setting for a picnic or barbecue.

There is hire fee for the use of each venue, which includes staffing and set up. Menu and drinks are charged in addition.
