    Once upon a time

    there was a little hotel by a stream

    oover an ancient clapper bridge in the centre of the Yorkshire Dales village of Malham lies the magical Beck Hall Hotel, Bar & Restaurant. 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 21 whimsical en-suite rooms, while away a summer evening in our streamside restaurant & bar 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 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.
