    Once upon a time

    Once upon a time

    there was a little hotel by a stream

    oover an ancient clapper bridge in the Yorkshire Dales village of Malham lies the magical Beck Hall Hotel, Deli & Bistro. Surrounded by rolling hills and the most magnificent limestone
    landscapes, our little hotel provides an enchanting escape from everyday life. After a day of exploring, unwind in one of our 18 whimsical en-suite rooms, while away a summer evening at Bistro by the Beck or spend a winter’s night by a roaring fire in the Snug.
    Beck Hall - Wayfarers Hostel
    Our story

    Built in 1705 as a yeoman’s cottage, Beck Hall became a “wayfarers’ hostel” in the 1930s. Over the years, this quaint, riverside cottage has grown into a little hotel that is now being lovingly restored by new owners Andy and Louise Macbeth. Beck Hall isn’t posh or perfect, but it’s a special place where people have made happy memories over the years, with many more to make.

    Deli & Bistro opening May 2015

    Bistro by the Beck

    Simple, seasonal & delicious stream-side dining

    The idea

    Farm-fresh local produce developed into simple but delicious dishes. Our deli and bistro menus are small but perfectly-formed and change with the seasons.

    The Deli

    Coming soon: Enjoy a relaxed lunch by the stream with a scrumptious selection of farmhouse cheeses, cold cuts, chutneys, salads and delicious home-baked bread and cakes.

    The Bistro

    Coming soon: Think candlelit evenings by the babbling beck with a glass of bubbles, a local beer or your favourite tipple, good food, good company and great value.

    The people

    We’re on the search for budding catering and hospitality stars to become part of the young and dynamic team behind Beck Hall’s new deli and bistro.

    Andy and Louise
    Owners & hosts

    Yorkshire-lad Andy and Lancashire-lass Louise stumbled upon Beck Hall in spring 2014 and fell in love with it. Shortly after, they uprooted from their London home, leaving behind careers in IT and journalism, and set to work on creating their fairytale hotel.

    Service superstar

    Meet Charlotte, a real-life service superstar. Nothing’s out of place when our Briggsy (a self-confessed perfectionist) is around. Born and bred in Malham, she’s worked at Beck Hall for more than seven years so you know who to ask for insider travel tips.

    Hotel hero

    If you’re not bowled over by local lad Tom’s brilliant, big breakfasts, we’ll give you your money back (we promise!). An all-round hotel hero, he’s admired for his hard work by all. He’ll be your knight in shining armour during your stay at Beck Hall.

    Chief sausage taster

    Resident woof Wookie’s life took a turn for the better when – in the space of a year – he was rescued from Battersea Dogs’ Home, whisked off to a new pad in walkies heaven and landed his perfect job sampling Beck Hall’s bangers. Only the butcher’s best will do.
