Overview

The Bridge Hotel & Spa is in the hamlet of Walshford in North Yorkshire. The hotel is said to stand exactly halfway between London and Edinburgh, so it's not surprising that the 17th-century core began life as a coaching inn. Today, the property is five minutes' drive from the A1(M) and is "well-connected" (The AA) for day trips.

The hotel is less than 10 minutes' drive from the market town of Wetherby. It's home to Wetherby Racecourse, which hosts racedays from October to July, and Bramham Park -- a sprawling wooded estate with an 18th-century manor, and host to the Bramham International Horse Trials and the Leeds Festival.

You can drive 15 minutes to Knaresborough and see Mother Shipton's Cave or the ruined 14th-century castle, or venture 30 minutes by car to spend the day at Newby Hall, Fountains Abbey or Lightwater Valley theme park. The nightlife of Leeds, the spa town of Harrogate and historic York -- "the North's most compelling city", according to Rough Guides -- are also around 30 minutes' drive from the hotel. The North York Moors and Yorkshire Dales national parks take 40 minutes by car. 

The hotel boasts a spa with an outdoor hot tub, two saunas, an ice fountain and a steam room (access is £15 per person for three hours). The cosy bar is adorned with oak panelling dating back 250 years, and the restaurant serves classic British dishes. Wi-Fi is free.

The decor and furnishings are somewhat dated and the bathroom spacious but hard to heat. Shower hard to adjust and loo seat loose.

Proximity to the main link roads.

Dinner was great- service was lacking a little although one waitress was kind- her manager then harassed her over something tiny. Spa was nice but very unusual layout- spread out over five sections inside and out.
