A country estate in North Yorkshire with an “impressive retreat complex” has been revealed as one of the UK’s cosiest places to stay at.

Broughton Sanctuary, near Skipton featured in the “25 cosiest places to stay in the UK” list by The Times.

The publisher said: “February is the most giving of months, providing the perfect excuse for some do-nothing indulgence as we wait for winter to end and spring to put in an appearance.

“Dry January, which feels as if it lasted at least three months, is finally done and dusted and hopefully you’ve chipped away at those Christmas credit card bills and so have the motivation and money to treat yourself to a cosy break and finally embrace the new year in style.”

What did The Times say about Broughton Sanctuary?

This popular wellness retreat has a claim to fame, as it was used as a filming location for the BBC TV series Gentleman Jack starring Suranne Jones.

The Times recommends this 3,000-acre estate outside Skipton for a “DIY wellness break” at one of its 19 holiday homes.

“Some are within the 16th-century Broughton Hall itself and its stables; others are in converted barns and farm buildings tucked into its woodland, moors and wildflower meadows,” it added.

“Interiors can be To the Manor Born traditional or open-plan modern; both cater to your health aspirations courtesy of the £70pp Wellbeing Bundle, which includes access to the estate’s impressive retreat complex with a 20m indoor pool, hydrotherapy, thermal suite, yoga classes and spa treatments.”
