Newfield Hall,

Situated close to Malham in South Yorkshire’s portion of the famous Dales, Newfield Hall offers country-pile atmosphere amid beautiful rural surroundings. A grand country house, this stately, storied property retains many of its original nineteenth century features, from the grand entrance to the sweeping staircase inside. The Hall has 48 bedrooms, as well as two cosy lounges and an elegant bar, providing guests with a laid-back and unstuffy retreat with a generous sprinkling of style. The Dales and countryside on the doorstep are a rambler’s paradise, with easy access to Malham Cove and its deeply indented limestone pavement, Gordale Scar and Pen y Ghent as well as the pretty villages of Grassington and Kettlewell.

 

Renowned for its warm welcomes and wonderful walks, the Yorkshire Dales will charm you with its choice of landscapes. Whether you’re seeking solitude and wilderness or the charm of cobbled streets in quaint villages, the quiet homely beauty of the Yorkshire Dales will have you hooked.

 

From the easiest of rambles, to more intensive hillside challenges, now is the time to lace up your boots and get outside and explore the great outdoors. Please note that all walks travel at a leisurely pace, so that you can appreciate the countryside you are experiencing. No walks are compulsory, and you can be as active as you wish.

From Barden Tower we follow the Dales Way over fields to reach the River Wharfe. We then follow the river past The Strid to the iconic ruins of Bolton Abbey.
