Between the Yorkshire Dales and the Yorkshire Moors. Solberge Hall is about three miles (and an £8 taxi ride) from the market town of Northallerton, one of the stops on the East Coast Main Line. The A1 and the A19 are nearby but don’t affect the ambience – the setting of this Georgian country house hotel, now a Grade II listed property, remains surprisingly tranquil. during the week. We saw several couples there for a romantic retreat while racegoers are encouraged (the hotel is run by Thoroughbred Hotels). Thirsk, Ripon, Catterick and York racecourses are all nearby.
