How are you?

I don't think there has ever been a time when this simple question has carried more weight and poignancy than it does today. 
From everyone here at Stone House we send our warmest greetings from a very quiet Wensleydale. We hope this quick message will get you thinking about a time not too far away, when you can return and re-discover your love affair with the Yorkshire Dales.

A glimmer of hope...

Further to the PM's address to the nation on Sunday evening, a small glimmer of light is beginning to shine. Although there is still a long road ahead we are hopeful we'll be able to re-open in some form by early July. 
Much more guidance is needed over the next few weeks which will enable us to plan for our safe re-opening. Our priority is your safety and that of our staff and we will do everything we can to make sure that Stone House is ready for your return.

Book with confidence

We have now contacted all guests to cancel bookings until the end of June.     

If you would like to make a provisional booking for July onward then please get in touch with us directly or via our online booking page. Should our opening date be pushed back then we can transfer your booking to later in the year or 2021 if you prefer. Deposits can be carried forward without exception.

Hopefully this will give you peace of mind to book with confidence.
Book Now.

Keeping busy

Despite the closure of the hotel we are not letting the grass grow under our feet. All our amazing staff are furloughed and staying home but we have no doubt they will be ready to spring into action once we get the green light!

Peter has been re-pointing existing paths and even making new ones. This seldom seen area at the back of the hotel is really for the benefit of the housekeeping staff! After years of asking (nagging) they can now reach the laundry room without getting their feet wet!
The lengths we go to!

We are also keeping the gardens in pristine condition ready for your return. With everything so quiet around the hotel the rabbits have decided to reclaim the lawn. Cutting the grass now involves side stepping the newly dug burrows that are appearing. Another reason why we need you back soon!

The Yorkshire Dales - Bottled!

You may already know that the hotel has a sister company based in Leyburn called Taplin & Mageean, and we produce ultra-premium craft gins. Indeed you could well have sampled some at the hotel if you have stayed here recently.
In recent months, it has been a busy time at the distillery, and we have built upon our award winning reputation by investing in a new website that really explains the story behind our gin, what makes us tick and the recipes we have created.  Why not take a look at to find out more. 
More recently as we have all reacted to the coronavirus pandemic, we switched some production capacity to make 80% alcohol hand sanitiser that we have been distributing free to local NHS frontline workers. It feels good to be doing our bit, and we were delighted to receive a personal letter from the Chancellor Rushi Sunak recognising our efforts.
We would love to provide you with some ultra-premium gin to help you enjoy summer evenings in your garden before you can enjoy a drink in ours! 

We are offering FREE DELIVERY on all gin orders during the lock down, and would love to ship a bit of the Yorkshire Dales in a bottle for you to savour and help you relax in the weeks to come. We will also include a free 200ml bottle of hand sanitiser with every gin purchase made until the end of June!

If you are preparing your business to re-open we can help you be covid secure. Please contact us for trade prices on our hand sanitiser or call (07875) 330316

We cannot wait to see you again. As soon as we have more information about when and how we can open our doors again - we will be back in touch but until then, please keep safe.

Good things come to those who wait..
