This former village coaching inn, with flagged floors and low-beamed rooms, has been turned into a smart but relaxed gastropub serving confident Modern British dishes. Together with its contemporary-country bedrooms, sun-trap beer garden and peaceful setting in the Washburn valley near Harrogate, it offers a chilled-out getaway with walks on the doorstep.

In the middle of tiny Timble village, with its church and village hall, which sits in the Washburn valley tucked between Nidderdale and Wharfedale, it's beautifully peaceful. A car is essential but on the plus side, there is no traffic other than village residents and guests, and there are wide-reaching views over lower Wharfedale. Bolton Abbey, in Wharfedale, with its 12th-century priory and riverside walks, is a 20-minute drive, as is the smart spa town of Harrogate.

By car: Timble is 4 hours 40 mins from London and 1 hour 40 mins from Manchester. Free parking is available on-site.

By train: Skipton and Harrogate stations both have links to London via York and Leeds and are around 20 minutes in a taxi from the hotel. Book trains.

The 18th-century former coaching inn is now very much a gastropub; you step straight into a bar set with white-clothed dining tables. Stone-flagged floors and low beams form the backdrop to cream and coloured walls, smart leather chairs or tweed-upholstered banquettes, strings of fairy lights and bold rococo-framed mirrors. There's a wood-burning stove in the second dining area to keep things cosy.


The guest-only sitting room in the next door cottage, with sofas and a log-burning stove, is a quiet space; there's a help-yourself coffee machine - or drinks can be delivered - although it lacks the charm of the pub. On warmer days, there's a beer garden at the rear. Throughout the year, occasional wine and spirit-tasting dinners are held.
