Records show that there was a house on the site of Nidd Hall at least 100 years before Elizabethan times and its oldest rooms, the cellars, date from this period. Yet Nidd Hall is perhaps best remembered for its 20th century history and the rumoured first fateful meeting between Edward VIII and Mrs Wallis Simpson. Nidds Georgian serenity is fit for the most regal of encounters and its easy to imagine the lovers-to-be exploring this elegant Grade II listed stately home and its landscaped gardens.
Nidd Hall sits within 45 acres of Victorian and Edwardian parkland, sculpted lawns and stepped terraces, the perfect manicured foil to the nearby glories of the Yorkshire Dales. Within 20 minutes youll be entranced by the medieval masterpiece of Fountains Abbey, while York, Bolton Abbey and Harewood House are all easy to find. Elegant Nidd has a full fitness suite, with spa pool, indoor pool and sauna and steam rooms, a fantastic fishing lake (seasonal, rod licence required), croquet, tennis, boules and many other indoor and outdoor facilities.
You can also try our Declor health and beauty therapies (at an extra charge) perfect to de-stress yourself!
