The White Rose Hotel provides 18 en-suite bedrooms in clean, friendly and comfortable surroundings, since it's reopening in April there have been some major modifications and the remainder of the year will see more coming. The establishment is set at the gateway to the Yorkshire dales (15 min drive) just 2 miles or so outside of Bedale. The A1 motorway providing easy access to the cities of York, Durham and Newcastle is only a mile or so from the hotel making us an ideal location for stopovers on longer drives.
Each room provides free wifi, tea/coffee, biscuits and complimentary toiletries, with flat screen TVs and access to an Iron should you need it. We have an extensive range for children, including travel cots, baby monitors, jumperoos, mamma roo rocking chairs, high chairs, toys, books, board games, Lego and games consoles all of which can be requested and reserved subjects availability with your booking. Locally the area offers lots to see and do, there are numerous walks, hikes and bike rides along with more family friendly activities such as Big sheep Little cow farm, Aerial Extreme for high wire adventure or if thrill seeking is your thing Lightwater valley is around a 20 minute drive away (ask at reception for discount vouchers off on the gate prices)
For more relaxed activities there are some fabulous little market towns to visit including Thirsk, Catterick, Bedale, Masham and Northallerton where you might catch a farmers market, discover little boutiques and antique shops or visit one of the auction houses.
