England is known for its tea and for its Bed and Breakfasts. It is very hard to separate the iconic image of a luxury bed and breakfast from the English countryside. There are hundreds of bed and breakfasts throughout the UK and finding one which meets the luxury expectations and the iconic standards associated with the North England bed and breakfast may be a bit daunting if you do not know where to look. Here are a few locations worthy of visiting. Make the most of your holiday, travel by rail to take in some of the wonderful views the north of England has to offer. Rail tickets are especially cheap if you plan your rail journey in advance.
Loxley House Bed and Breakfast
The Loxley House Bed and Breakfast is located in Hawes and within easy access of the Yorkshire Dales National Park. The accommodations are styled after the “traditional historic” exterior meaning that there is the stone/cobblestone appearance and the larger windows. The interior space is limited to 6 guest rooms. Unlike the exterior, the interior rooms utilize a more modern and luxurious design while retaining the home (and not the hotel) ambiance.
The Loxley house is a top pick bed and breakfast not only for its appearance and setting in the countryside, but also for its proximity to local attractions in the North Yorkshire area including Dales Countryside Museum, Hardraw Force, and Aysgarth Falls. Loxley Bed and Breakfast is within the Yorkshire Dales National Park and within close proximity to the Lake District N.P.
Rates vary according to your room choice. Rooms 1,2,and 4 book for £90 per room per night where 3 and 5 are booked for £85. You have to call to get information on room six. None of the rooms are available for children below 14 and babies.
Lovesome Hill Farm Bed and Breakfast
Lovesome Hill Farm B&B is located in the North Yorkshire area. The bed and breakfast is on a traditional farm of 165 acres. However, the farm operations are not distracting from the experience. There are five main accommodations: The Gate Cottage, the Granary Mill, the Granary Pine, the Granary Stable, and the Granary Oak.
The Lovesome Hill Farm Bed and Breakfast makes our list of places to visit based upon the multiple awards which is has received as well as its proximity to Northallerton, Ripon, West Tanfield, and Masham.

The building was constructed in 1840 as a dower house for Lord Sudley’s mother. There are only three rooms which are offered for booking which makes this quite the secluded and romantic getaway spot. The three rooms are the Double en suite, Twin en suite, and the Pink Room. Occasionally, there will be a single room available, but calling and booking is paramount for getting this room.
The North Farmcote Bed and Breakfast is a merger of modern technology and luxury with the traditional style and design. Breakfast is served in a dining room and evening meals are offered.
