Har­ro­gate spa takes top ho­tel crown

Yorkshire Post - - NEWS -

HAR­RO­GATE’S RUDDING Park Ho­tel is named to­day as the UK’s best spa des­ti­na­tion.

The Swin­ton Park Ho­tel at Masham also makes the list of top spas, in the 2017 edi­tion of the Sun­day Times Best Places to Stay guide.

Rudding Park’s prin­ci­pal at­trac­tion is said by the guide to be its “drop-dead gor­geous rooftop gar­den”, a wood­land glade in the sky cre­ated by Matthew Wil­son, who is a reg­u­lar on Gar­den­ers’ Ques­tion Time.

The guide’s travel edi­tor Stephen Bleach said: “It’s great to see the North stamp­ing its author­ity on the UK’s in­creas­ingly im­por­tant spa scene.

“Rudding Park and Swin­ton Park in York­shire have both in­vested mil­lions in well­ness fa­cil­i­ties that give Asia’s big names a run for their money.”

Rec­om­men­da­tions for other types of es­tab­lish­ment in­clude the Miche­lin-starred Star Inn at Harome, near Kirk­by­moor­side, the Vic­to­rian Stow House B&B at Ays­garth Falls in the York­shire Dales, and in the city cat­e­gory, the four-star Prin­ci­pal Ho­tel in the cen­tre of York.

Mr Bleach said: “This re­gion of­fers a huge va­ri­ety of places to stay, from cute coun­try pubs to el­e­gant stately piles, as well as some of the most stun­ning scenery in the coun­try.”
