Welcome to The Yorke Arms, a stunning getaway situated in the heart of the breath-taking scenery of the Nidderdale Valley, an area of outstanding natural beauty in the North Yorkshire Dales. Nestled at the end of the Gouthwaite reservoir in the village of Ramsgill, the area draws visitors from around the world to its stunning moorlands and tapestry of meadows.

Our History

An 18th century coaching house is home to The Yorke Arms. The site was a monastic cheesery as far back as the eleventh century before becoming a coaching inn when the Yorke family disposed of their lands and properties. In 2017 The Yorke Arms was bought by The Bayford Group. In 2018, The Yorke Arms underwent a sensitive refurbishment programme working with some of the finest craftsmen and women in Yorkshire to create something extraordinary.
