History of the hotel

The Devonshire Arms was built in the 17th century and came under the ownership of the 4th Duke of Devonshire in 1753 as part of the Bolton Abbey Estate.
It was the 5th Duke, though, who cemented its place in history.  Realising the importance of visitors to the area, the Duke established miles of footpaths. 
During the 19th century, the Royal Family visited Bolton Abbey for grouse shoots. 
In response to the influx of new visitors, The Cavendish Pavilion was built by the riverside. 

Dogs Policy

Dogs are welcome in all rooms,  charged at £15 per dog per night. There are washing areas, spare bowls, leads and waste bags, as well as thoughtfully placed bins for you to keep our beautifully maintained grounds just as you found them. Dogs are welcome in the hotel lounges.  Please note that the Burlington Restaurant is not pet-friendly, however there are a limited number of dog friendly tables in the Brasserie Restaurant which must be reserved in advance.
