Sportsmans Arms Hotel


The Sportsman's Arms Hotel and Restaurant nestles close to the river Nidd (on which it has fishing rights) at Wath in Nidderdale - a conservation village, and one of the most picturesque and unspoiled villages in a beautiful part of the Yorkshire Dales.

Reached by a pack horse bridge and set in its own gardens, this attractive 17th century mellow sandstone building attracts you like a magnet. Once inside, the cosy lounges, log fires, bar and charming, softly lit restaurant exude warmth and this and the welcome and hospitality of owners Jane and Ray Carter will remain with you throughout your stay.

The local reputation for the Sportman's Arms is that it is a first class restaurant with bedrooms. However this is not fair to the bedrooms which are comfortable and tastefully decorated, retaining many original features.

At the heart of the Sportsman's Arms, however, is the restaurant and the first class food and wine on offer. Working with the best fresh local game, fish and vegetables, this Yorkshire Dales Inn provides a veritable feast for its guests.

Open all year except Christmas Day.

Rooms: 12
