Why we love it...

Unspoilt location

The Place

After a spectacular drive through rolling valleys and the unspoilt stone village of Hawnby, you will come across The Owl, a delightful country inn looking out over the moorlands. Its village pub façade hides an exquisite country hotel that has been decorated with obvious flair, bold fabrics and warm tones throughout.

The hotel, formerly known as the Inn at Hawnby, used to be part of the 13,000-acre Mexborough Estate and has recently been taken over by restauranteurs Sam and Peter Varley. The kitchen produces a full a la carte menu, all from scratch and proudly incorporating produce from North Yorkshire’s many farms and suppliers. With a kitchen-garden and an in-house butcher, you can rest assured that nothing on your plate has travelled far. The home-smoked charcuterie platter is a firm favourite.

The Varleys have tidied up the outside of the inn and the gardens, as well as giving the public rooms and bedrooms some attention, aiming to make them altogether cosier and more welcoming. The outdoor terrace is the star of the show, providing incredible views over the countryside in every season.

Reports continue to heap praise on The Owl: “This charming country hotel…is an ideal base for touring North Yorkshire; a gem with fabulous views, home cooking and friendly service.”
