Surrounded by the splendour of the Yorkshire Dales National Park and nestled in the heart of iconic Wensleydale the historic 18th century Blue Lion Inn encapsulates the finest elements of traditional rural England.

Paul and Helen Klein have run the Blue Lion Inn for over 20 years creating a blend of quintessential English coaching inn with modern comfort to relax and recharge. Whatever you require of the Blue Lion, be it real ale and food at the bar to candlelit fine dining and beautiful accommodation you can be sure that your stay will be homely, welcoming and full of friendly character.

After rumbling across the original cobbled driveway enter the Inn and relax in our homely surroundings. Warm up beside our roaring log fires in one of North Yorkshire’s most iconic pubs before collecting your cricket ball key to one of our exquisite bedrooms. If a shorter visit is more for you then unwind with a newspaper from the traditional hangers by the door with a sumptuous meal from the chalked up menu boards.
