Alfresco Dining

For a truly unforgettable experience, entertain your guests with an Alfresco Dining experience. We have the Deerhouse in the parkland, just a short walk or drive from the hotel, with views over the turret and surrounding countryside, or one of our moorland Bothy Huts, providing breathtaking views of the Yorkshire Dales.

You can choose between a picnic or a barbeque meal at the Deerhouse, and a picnic at a Bothy Hut. There is hire fee for the use of the venue, including staffing and set up, with additional menu cost. Please see the Deerhouse or Bothy Hut pages for more information.
