Ox Pasture Hall Hotel
Last weekend we had the absolute pleasure of being invited to stay at Ox Pasture Hall Hotel in Scarborough, North Yorkshire, to unwind in the countryside. I was super excited to visit, after seeing so many other bloggers documenting their stay here, but this also meant that I arrived with big expectations.
The hotel is nestled in the countryside and set in seventeen acres of its own land. Not only is it a gorgeous retreat for a weekend away, it also boasts its own award-winning restaurant that is recommended in the Michelin guide. We stayed for a lovely dinner and afternoon tea here, but I’ve saved the food for separate post because I got a little bit snap-happy (as per).
As you can see, the view from our suite was gorgeous. We had two big windows in the lounge area, which looked on to the hotel’s mini lake/big pond as well as the picturesque countryside hills.
Although the bedroom area had windows facing inwards, into the courtyard, this was still a lovely view to wake up to as there was a small fountain right in the middle.
The hotel is also dog-friendly, so for a small charge you can bring along your furry companion to enjoy the endless walks in the grounds and surrounding national park. If we’d have stayed for more than one night, we probably would have brought Dobs the chihuahua with us!
This was probably my favourite part of staying in the honeymoon suite. Matching his & hers sinks, a walk-in waterfall shower and a nice big bathtub. Although I sadly didn’t get the chance to have a soak in the bathtub, I can imagine it would’ve been a lovely experience with a few candles and a bottle of bubbly.
I only had one slight niggle with the bathroom. I love a steamy hot shower and after running it for ages it was still lukewarm at best and the water pressure wasn’t too great either. I have a suspicion that this might not be the case for all the suites though, and possibly due to the fact the water had a long way to travel to our faraway suite.
What I did appreciate in the bathroom though, was the miniature toiletries supplied. I forever forget to pack shower gel, so it’s always a bit of a lifesaver!
Breakfast in Bed
The luxury suite boasted a huge bedroom, with dressing table, flat screen LCD TV and that all important kingsize bed. Believe me, we were so thankful of that bed after filling ourselves to the point of bursting at dinner!
I’ve got to say though, one of the best things about treating yourself to a weekend away is having a delicious full English breakfast brought straight to your room in the morning. This certainly lived up to our expectations. Fresh quality meat and eggs cooked to our liking, it was the best start to our day. 100% should have come with beans though, right? *Cue heated debate*
The luxury suite we stayed in is available for around £350 per night for a weekend stay, but if you’re organised and plan in advance, you can book it for much cheaper and also get breakfast and dinner included in the price too!
All in all, we had an amazing stay at Ox Pasture Hall Hotel. Stay tuned for part two, which includes all the delicious food we devoured.
Our one night stay, including breakfast, dinner & afternoon tea, was complimentary of Ox Pasture Hall Hotel, but as always, all views & opinions are my own.
