Our favourite rooms
Cosy and contemporary Room 21 is dripping with character, with the original beam running through the ceiling and a huge bathroom with a claw-foot bath. Room 17 is the largest studio double. Rooms 20–25 are more modern in style, the others are classic and countrified. Superstitiously enough, there’s no room 13.
The outdoor pool is set on a lovely garden terrace, with picnic tables and chairs dotted about. It's heated all year round so you can swim even when it snows. You can order from a poolside-dining menu in summertime.
No one’s seen dead in these parts without a pair of solid, sturdy wellies for tramping the moors.
The Feversham welcomes dogs, but not in the restaurant; and doggy damages must be paid for. There’s a two-night minimum stay and compulsory dinner at weekends.
Cots are provided free; folding z-beds for older kids are available for £19 a night. The hotel can recommend a local babysitter, and the restaurant has a children’s menu.
Babies and up – children of all ages welcomed.
The seven poolside suites are ideal for families. Each has a sitting area with a sofa-bed. 22 is on two floors, with a sofa-bed on the top floor and separate cloakroom. Cots are available free; there's a £19 charge for a Z-bed.
Ask at reception to borrow colouring books and toys for babies. The most popular attractions for children nearby are the large, outdoor adventure playground at Castle Howard, and the North Yorkshire Moors Railway.
There's a large heated outdoor pool, open throughout the year.
Children are allowed in the restaurant till 8pm. There's a kids' menu with family favourites like homemade soup, chicken nuggets, lemon sole goujons and chocolate pudding with fudge sauce (£5.50 for two courses, £7.50 for three). Staff are happy to heat up milk and baby food.
