Last-minute availability

This summer saw an unprecedented surge in bookings for The Old Vicarage as people rushed to find the perfect UK ‘staycation’. Within days of the easing of lockdown, all of our remaining 2020 weeks were filled with many holidaymakers booking well into next year.
Unfortunately, with the recent announcement of the ‘rule of six’, some of our guests have now had to cancel their upcoming holidays, resulting in some rare, last-minute availability including the October half term weeks.
If you’re still looking for a much-needed holiday this year or just want to take the opportunity to escape from it all and enjoy a unique, 5* self-catering break in the beautiful Yorkshire Dales with exclusive leisure facilities then we can help.
The new rules state that people should not go on holiday in England with people outside their household/bubble in a group larger than six. This does mean that a group can holiday together from as many as six different households – ideal for getting friends together.
The law also allows groups of more than six as long as they are from ONE household or support bubble.
If either of these circumstances apply then please get in touch and we can discuss available dates, some of which may not yet be showing on our availability calendar. Short breaks are also possible.

We are expecting these free dates to go very quickly so please call us now on 01748 884348 or 07704 455854 or email to secure a booking.

We're Good to Go!

We are delighted to be able to open the doors of The Old Vicarage again and look forward to helping our guests enjoy a summer of fun-filled holidays packed with happy memories. With miles of secluded picturesque countryside to explore, as well as plenty of exciting outdoor attractions to keep the whole family entertained, the Yorkshire Dales is the perfect place for a safe ‘staycation’.

It is vitally important that our guests feel 100% comfortable so please be reassured that we will be maintaining the highest levels of health and safety so that you can relax and enjoy your well-deserved break.

In recognition of this commitment, we have been awarded a ‘We’re Good to Go’ accreditation from VisitEngland – a UK-wide industry standard and consumer mark that has recently been launched to provide a ‘ring of confidence’ for visitors as the tourism sector reopens.

The ‘We’re Good to Go’ mark is exclusive to businesses that can demonstrate that they are adhering to the latest Government and public health guidance, have carried out a Covid-19 risk assessment and checked that they have all the required processes in place.

We have always followed a rigorous cleaning and hygiene routine at The Old Vicarage – with 5 star ratings from previous guest reviews as well as top marks in all of our independent VisitEngland assessments – and we will continue to go that extra mile. Our experienced cleaners have undergone a special Covid-19 training course. They will wear PPE when preparing the property for your arrival, and additional disinfectants and anti-viral sprays will be used as well as the regular cleaning products. You are more than welcome to view our completed cleaning and preparation checklists at the beginning of your stay. The leisure facilities will also be thoroughly cleaned between sessions.


Even though we love to welcome you personally – socially distanced of course! –a contactless arrival can also be arranged. If you prefer this option, then there are various sources of digital information to ensure your stay progresses smoothly.


All that remains is for you to have the most wonderful holiday experience in the knowledge that we have everything else covered!


We look forward to welcoming you to The Old Vicarage soon.
