BW Crown Hotel Boroughbridge is one of Herriot Country’s gateway hotels. Located in the centre of the ancient and historic town of Boroughbridge, you’ll find the BW Crown Hotel on what was the Great North Road. A former 15th C coaching inn, the Crown Hotel is a surprisingly large hotel with many amenities and comforts that Alf Wight (James Herriot) probably appreciated at one time or another.
Arriving into Herriot Country at Boroughbridge (J48/A1(M) you have the choice of heading into Herriot Country East or West and using the hotel as your base. Head first for The World of James Herriot (of course!), which is just 15 minutes drive via the A168 to Thirsk.
The hotel offers 37 high-quality ensuite bedrooms, Stables Bar and the Crown Grill restaurant with menus to suit all occasions whether a light bite or a fulsome lunch or dinner. With lots of comfy lounges to relax in, have tea and coffee with cakes or full afternoon tea and you’ll soon feel at home.
If relaxation for you is a healthy workout or a swim, then the Crown Leisure Club is the place to head where you can take advantage of a fully equipped fitness suite where team members can advise about your exercise routine. If perhaps you are seeking a less rigorous relaxation regime, then simply strip off, put on your swimming costume and relax in the sauna, steam room and Jacuzzi before a refreshing swim in the main heated indoor pool.
