This spectacular cliff was a backdrop for Harry Potter & the Deathly Hallows.
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 its charming history, fairy-tale location and devoted staff make it a truly unique and friendly little hotel.
Open Wednesdays to Sundays. 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.
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 fairy-tale and super dog-friendly hotel.
When she’s not leading exercise classes at the gym, fitness pro Monika is putting Beck Hall’s team through its paces. Her stamina & hospitality knowhow have taken her from Hungary to Canada, the Canaries & to Yorkshire, where her secret love of Yorkshire puds has kept her for 7 years.
Meet Charlotte, a real-life service superstar. Nothing’s out of place when our Briggsy (a self-confessed perfectionist) is around. Born and bred here in Malhamdale, she’s worked at Beck Hall Hotel for more than seven years so you know who to ask for insider travel tips.
Behind every great bistro is a great manager, in our case that’s Lancashire gal Nicole. Having helped launch The Secret Garden with partner & head chef Louise, the dream team has seen it through to today’s success with superb seasonal menus & a relaxed service that runs like clockwork. Tick tock!
Also of the Red Rose County, culinary extraordinaire Louise developed her prowess under Michelin chef Nigel Haworth & honed her skills in top kitchens. Her passion is seen on every plate, along with a helping of her colourful personality, keeping her dishes real & truly one of a kind.
Resident woof Wookie’s life took a turn for the better when – in the space of just a year – he was rescued from London’s 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.
