Devonshire Arms | Bolton Abbey Wedding Photography

The Devonshire Arms, sounds like a pub!! But in reality The Devonshire Arms Hotel is a classic and elegant country estate hotel nestled in the beautiful Yorkshire Dales national park.

Originally built in the early 17th century, is now under the ownership of the Duke of Devonshire and forms part of the Bolton Abby estate. A popular retreat during the 19th century for the royal family, who would stay at Bolton Abby for grouse shoots and the Devonshire Arms, was often used for hospitality.

The coming of the railway in 1888 and the motor car in the early 20th century placed new demands on the hotel, so the Cavendish Pavilion was built by the riverside to provide refreshments and is now a popular place for country lovers of all ages.

In 1981 the hotel underwent a major refurbishment and additional bedrooms were added, under the supervision of Her Grace the Dowager Duchess of Devonshire. Her personal touch is still evident throughout. Much of the artwork has come from Chatsworth’s Devonshire Collection, one of the finest private art collections in Europe, making the ideal choice for an array of important private and public occasions and events.
