Welcome to The Black Swan hotel, Ravenstonedale, owned and run by Louise Dinnes, the Dinnes family and their fantastic team for 16 years.
We are very lucky to be situated at the convergence of 3 stunning northern counties and the hotel itself is located in both The Yorkshire Dales National Park and also Cumbria. This allows for easy access to explore The Lake District, The Yorkshire dales and stunning dales of County Durham. Alternatively, being just 10 minutes from the M6 and the A66 we are also the perfect stop off point for those long journeys.
Relax in our idyllic riverside garden with resident red squirrels, have a bite to eat at our award winning restaurant or cosy bar, take a walk around the beautiful village with Gilbertite monastic ruins or, enjoy golf and tennis in the village courses. We look forward to welcoming you to the beautiful Eden Valley.
We have been recognised for our achievements over the years from well respected national publications / organisations including Sawdays, Good Hotel Guide, Good Pub Guide, Michelin, the AA, the National Press and many more.
