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.



Escape to the Yorkshire Dales for a fun but secluded break

Escape to the Yorkshire Dales for a fun but secluded break

Does the idea of a tranquil, award-winning bolt-hole tucked away in its own spacious grounds in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales appeal at the moment?
We have availability from now until well into the summer, and can provide the perfect break for you and your family and friends to escape from the current turmoil and uncertainty. At The Old Vicarage you can find time to relax and enjoy an exciting holiday in the most stunning location with amazing facilities. And best of all - no flights, no cancellations, no hassle and the place to yourselves, well away from others.
As well as providing spacious, luxury 5-star Gold accommodation that comfortably sleeps up to 10 people, The Old Vicarage offers breathtaking views and surroundings. You also have exclusive use of extensive and outstanding private leisure facilities that include a heated indoor swimming pool, Jacuzzi, sauna, steam room, tennis courts, and state-of-the-art gym with table tennis and table football. There's plenty of fun to be had!
The property is also encircled by miles and miles of flowering meadows, woodland and large expanses of remote moorland that is perfect for walking, cycling and exploring. We even have our own private stretch of river where you can enjoy family picnics, stone skimming, paddling, fossil hunting or just sitting reading a book listening to the birdsong.
Most importantly, there is space to breathe the fresh air and look out across vast, uninterrupted horizons. These are very troubled times but we can offer a bit of 'normal' by getting back to nature. Look out for wildlife, hear the calls of the wild birds and listen to the occasional conversation of grazing farm animals. It is quite simply the place to get away from it all but also somewhere that is very special and altogether different.
To find out more, check our current availability, or give us a call on 01748 884348 and we’d be happy to help you in person.
