We are opening from 12 April - new spring dates available

We are thrilled that, all being well, The Old Vicarage can open its doors again from 12 April.

A limited number of dates have also just been released including holidays starting 12 April and 30 April.This is a wonderful time of year in the Yorkshire Dales and these weeks present a great opportunity to celebrate the first release from lockdown with some much-deserved time away.

These previously booked dates have only become available because unfortunately some guests have been unable to meet the travel criteria*. Other dates may follow, so please keep an eye on the availability calendar and be prepared to move quickly as there is likely to be huge demand for UK holidays as the year unfolds. We are otherwise fully booked up until the end of 2021 with the exception of 3 December.

With the continuing uncertainty surrounding international travel, the staycation is proving the preferred holiday of choice. The Old Vicarage provides the perfect opportunity for family and friends to escape to the great outdoors and enjoy a unique holiday that will stay in the memory for years to come.

*Just to re-cap on the current guidelines, it is likely that from 12 April people will be able to stay in self-catering accommodation with other members of their household but this should be extended to two households after 17 May and then with no restrictions after 21 June.  


Please get in touch to book your holiday now

For further information about availability, please call 01748 884348 / 07704 455854 or email



Book with confidence

We understand that this is an ever-changing situation and the roadmap might change. Please be assured that any holidays that have to be cancelled due to Coronavirus regulations will happily be rolled over to another time to suit you or, if necessary, fully refunded. We want you to have complete peace of mind and confidence regarding your booking.


New recreation area is on the way

New recreation area is on the way

The Old Vicarage might be closed to guests at the moment but we are using the time constructively to further improve our extensive leisure facilities.

Our plans involve converting a section of the large outbuilding adjacent to the house into a new recreation area with a full-size pool table. There have been plans to do this for a while but it is hard to get a long enough gap when the property is empty, so that we are not disturbing the peace and quiet of people’s rural retreat with any work on site. This is one positive outcome of lockdown!

Originally the building was a shippon, used for hand-milking cows. In latter years, one of the three bays has been used for housing the barbeques, firewood and recycling but the other two bays have been closed off for general storage. Following a bit of a sort-out (of the things we keep ‘just in case’!), we are now able to free up one of these bays for the use of guests. The plan is to preserve the rustic nature of the building but capitalise on the wonderful open space for a self-contained activity area.

The new facilities will complement those already housed in the main leisure complex (situated a few minutes’ walk away across the fields) but they will have the added bonus of being within the grounds of the house itself. This is perfect if older children want to safely occupy themselves while the adults potter about, or alternatively if the grown ups want time to hive off or even take part in a mini-tournament!

We will keep you up-to-date with how this fun project develops and look forward to the big unveiling when we are able to welcome back our guests.
