In its past, the hotel was once a guest house for geologists who wanted to study Ingleborough and the area’s limestone topography. The land that the hotel was originally built upon was used as ‘the trading paddock’, which over the years became known as ‘The Traddock’, giving the hotel its current name.

The Traddock has won several prestigious awards throughout the years, including Editors choice Award for Dog Friendly Hotel – The Good Hotel Guide 2016, along with two AA Rosettes for Culinary Excellence and the AA Breakfast Award.

Situated in the limestone Dales with stunning walks on the doorstep, The Traddock, after four visits, is my favourite small hotel. The newly finished suite is superb, coupled with excellent food and traditional comfort. Can’t wait for our next visit.

All in all wonderful relaxing stay. We shall visit again in the not too distant future when the weather is a little warmer so we can take advantage of the local countryside.

This is such a welcoming home from home. As soon as we arrived we were met by friendly staff. Our room was beautiful, so full of character and had great views. This is one of my favourite places to eat, the food is divine and the I’ve never experienced service like it. It’s almost as if the staff can read your mind and magically appear to fill your wine glass, remove plates or to check if everything is ok! The best hotel in Yorkshire!
