From cool camping to brilliant B&Bs

There are several very busy high quality bed and breakfast accommodations in Otley, and a 4* country hotel on the Chevin overlooking the town as well as a camp site for those who enjoy the great outdoors. See below for details.

However, there are four international brand hotels within a 10-minute drive of Otley: the Premier Inn and Travelodge at the nearby airport and the Mercure and Britannia Hotels on the A660 towards Leeds.

Chevin Country Park Hotel & Spa

Chevin Country Park Hotel and Spa is one of the most picturesque hotels in Yorkshire

Set above the market town of Otley, you will find unspoiled woodlands, secluded accommodation and glorious fishing lakes at the Chevin Country Park Hotel.  With 49 attractively decorated hotel rooms and log cabins, you will feel a million miles away from it all. However, you will also find bustling markets, fine restaurants, bars, galleries and shopping just minutes away.

Eating at the beautifully extended lakeside restaurant is a must for all visitors. To add further relaxation and enjoyment to your visit, why not try one of the many treatments available at the hotel’s own spa?
