AN EXCEPTIONAL, EXCLUSIVE-USE RETREAT IN THE HEART OF THE YORKSHIRE DALES – THIS BEAUTIFUL GRADE II LISTED BUILDING IS THE HOME OF THE DUKE AND DUCHESS OF DEVONSHIRE AND THEIR FAMILY. STILL VERY MUCH LOVED AND USED BY THE FAMILY, THE HALL HAS RECENTLY BEEN MADE AVAILABLE FOR PRIVATE USE.
With 28,000 acres to call one’s own, this extraordinary private estate exudes a peaceful sense of place. With a dedicated team providing consummate concierge service, the country house retreat, dating in part from the 14th century, is a vision of vaulted halls, castellated towers, antiques, and ancestral art.
Within the stately surroundings, guests are invited to make themselves at home in the wood-paneled drawing rooms, enjoy a game of billiards at cocktail hour or throw a special dinner party in the impressive dining room (the estate family’s staff work with guests to create bespoke, locally influenced meals). Exclusive-use parties of up to 22 people have 12 bedrooms to use, 10 of which were recently refurbished by interior designer Rita Konig. Many rooms boast beautiful views across the manicured gardens to the 12th-century Bolton Priory Church and ruins.
By day, guests may hike across the moors or fly fish on the River Wharfe, visit the neighboring Chatsworth House, Ripley Castle, or Castle Howard before returning for dining and dancing by candlelight at the estate. Available to rent in its entirety only, a stay at The Hall at Bolton Abbey offers a uniquely private experience and an unforgettable escape for families, groups, and friends traveling together.
