What really sold The Devonshire Fell to us originally was the unspoilt amazing views and the fact it's an exclusive venue that you can really make your own. What we didn't anticipate is the incredible service from Hannah, and the team who made the whole experience much more calm, bespoke and so

special, we also didn't anticipate the food served on the big day to be so top level (our guests still go on about that sticky toffee pud now!), the hotel itself and the great space to party in until late! What an amazing venue, don't hesitate - you won't regret booking it!

My wife and I held our wedding celebrations at the Devonshire Fell in October 2019. We opted for the 2 night Devonshire package. The ceremony was held at Bolton Abbey Priory.

The hotel and area has always been a special place to us both, and the setting of the Fell is exceptional! From the first

initial meeting with Hannah we knew this was the venue for us. Hannah was the right balance of friendly and professional throughout all the planning, and dealt with any issues promptly - without her I feel the whole process would have been much more stressful for us both.

Once the big weekend arrived the whole staff at the Devonshire Fell were amazing, from the moment we arrived (‘Relax, we do a lot of weddings, don’t worry about a thing’) right through to check out. Everything went perfectly, and we couldn’t have asked for a more special day - It really was the best day of our lives.

We can highly recommend the Devonshire Fell to host your wedding. It’s a great venue, which is exclusive to you and your guests making the day more intimate. The staff could not do enough to help us, our guests or the dogs. Everyone loved it!

Thank you all at the Devonshire Fell!

Myself and my husband had our wedding reception here on 6th September 2019. Hannah our wedding co-ordinator was fantastic meeting up with us on a regular basis and answering our questions and if she didn’t know the answer at the time she would email us it that day or the day after. Hannah was also

very organised and friendly which put us at ease immediately.

On the wedding day, the team were fantastic. So calm, professional and welcoming. We couldn’t have asked for a better place to have our reception and we had the best day of our lives thanks to the Devonshire Fell and Team. We are so glad we chose your hotel and would highly recommend to anyone wanting to have their wedding here or just wanting to stay, you will have the most amazing time and receive the most amazing service.

We had our wedding reception at The Fell in early September and it was absolutely perfect. The Fell was the first venue we looked at and instantly knew it was the right place for us - the beautiful scenic location coupled with a lovely chilled out atmosphere was exactly what we wanted so we reserved

a date straight away!

Our wedding planner Jessica was friendly and informative without being pushy and continued throughout our year of planning as being a great planner with nothing too much trouble for her.

On the day, Nickki was absolutely fantastic, very attentive and genuinely seemed happy to be working and part of our special day. The menu we chose was still as tasty as when we had picked it on our tasting day and our guests thoroughly enjoyed all 3 courses.

We woke up to gorgeous views from our suite and were greeted by staff for breakfast joined by our guests.

We’ve had lots of remarks from our guests how much they had enjoyed the wedding and were equally in love with The Fell and it’s atmosphere.

A massive thank you to all the staff involved in making our day so special and perfect

We had our wedding reception at the Devonshire Fell yesterday and I cannot put into words how incredible all the staff were. They all made us feel like a prince and princess from the Wednesday before our Saturday wedding day until 4pm on the Sunday when we finally accepted it was time to leave

(albeit we never wanted it to end).

Our every need was attended to, particularly by David and Jennifer. The planning in the months leading up was made so smooth by Hannah’s meticulous attention to detail and the function service charter which the venue tailors for your event.

Not to mention how every one of our guests ran out of superlatives to describe how amazing the chef, Rob’s food creations were throughout, from the night before BBQ, to Yorkshire breakfasts, afternoon tea and of course the wedding breakfast itself!

We chose the venue because it is so dog friendly. Our Labrador Chief went with us to every meeting and he was always treated like the VIPup he is. On the day he had free run of the venue and it’s beautiful grounds and he was in his element.

Finally, the breathtaking views! Just wow!

I would truly recommend to anyone who wants the fairytale wedding! Thank you!

After such a wonderful experience this weekend celebrating our daughter's wedding, I thought I must put 'pen to paper' to thank you!

Everything surpassed our expectations! The staff were so professional and very helpful! The food was fantastic, all breakfasts, BBQ, Afternoon Tea and Wedding

Breakfast. Never tasted sticky toffee pudding like it !!!!

In particular I must mention Hannah - such a talented helpful young lady who organised our every need, David - a polite, extremely willing young man, and last but not least Jennifer - what an asset she is to your business! Nothing was too much trouble and as my husband said she made everyone feel so special - it's quite obvious that she loves her job!

Once again, our grateful appreciation!

We had our wedding at the Devonshire Fell on 23rd March 2019.
Having been to a friends wedding reception at the Devonshire Fell 6 years ago we decided to have a look for our wedding. From our first meeting with Hannah and our first visit we knew it was the place for us, Hannah is professional,

organised and calming and the venue warm and welcoming.
Our day was made all the more special by the fantastic Devonshire Fell team who could not do enough to ensure that we and our family and friends had a day to remember. Everything ran seamlessly and the food was incredible, every one of our guests commented that it had been the most amazing day.
The whole team were amazing but special mention to Hannah, David & Nicole who all went over and above to ensure that we and our guests had everything we needed.
We would recommend the Devonshire Fell to anyone wanting an intimate wedding, with fabulous food and service in a beautiful setting with incredible views.

Just thank you, we were overjoyed last night on our wedding day. It was perfect from start to finish and we felt every wish for our dream day was met and exceeded. Thank you so much!

From our first meeting with Hannah we knew the Devonshire Fell was the perfect venue for our special day.

Everything from the hotel decor, location and superb staff made our day everything we expected and more. Hannah and the team made us feel relaxed all the way through the process and we can't thank all of the staff enough for their friendly and professional approach to the whole day. I physically cannot put into words how much of a perfect day we had and wouldn't hesitate to recommend the fell to anyone looking to tie the knot in a beautiful hotel with stunning views.

Hi Hannah.... how can we thank you enough for making our day one we both agree ranks as one of the best days of our lives. You guys were all absolutely amazing, nothing was too much trouble and you gave us a day far beyond our expectations.

Please pass on our gratitude to everyone there,

especially the lovely lady that was there throughout and served breakfast in the morning.... she knows who she is, I’m sure.

I would definitely recommend this venue. My husband and I had our wedding here on 23rd March 2018 and nothing was too much trouble for Hannah and the team. They were all excellent, very professional and went above and beyond to make our day one we will never forget. The food was superb and all our guests complimented the everything about the day. The hotel is very warm and friendly and the rooms really clean.

We would highly recommend this venue.

As soon as we walked in the door of the Devonshire Fell Hotel we knew it was the one ...
... for our boutique wedding – we liked that there were different spaces in the bar, conservatory, bistro, dining room and chairs by an open fire. The location and views are breathtakingly stunning, photos

Read More

don’t do it justice. The staff were fantastic from beginning to end, we felt very spoiled and indulged. Nothing was too much trouble. EVERYONE commented on how fantastic it was and worth the journey – it’s an hour from our house and wasn’t local for anyone.
The food was stunning and portions generous, the team worked their socks off getting it to the tables quickly and piping hot. The onion and white cider soup was incredible and the vegetarian toad in the hole divine. The carnivores were very well serviced too! There were a lot of thoughtful, experienced touches for example how the dining room was laid out for our wedding breakfast and how separate canapes and drinks were reserved for the bride and groom to make sure we didn’t miss out.
The staff deserve special mention as they were ¬all so professional, warm, considerate, thoughtful and genuinely interested – they worked so hard for our day.
Hannah as the wedding coordinator was patient, efficient, reliable, good natured, fun and supportive.
Deputy Manager Helen worked her socks off on our wedding day, she worked so hard and with good grace answering all queries and quietly running around.
Paul tended bar with efficient humour – the best hot chocolate ever must not be missed!
Anna really looked after us and also worked hard with dinner and bar service.
The lovely chap who served breakfast (sorry we didn’t get your name) and Manager Jen did everything she could to help us make decisions.
Truly, the best day of our lives and a lot of that was because of the Devonshire Fell and its lovely team.

Thank you so much for our beautiful wedding day Saturday!! I can't even tell you how much we love the fell and the people in it! Our first time at the fell was almost 2 years ago and we have visited at least 5 times since! It is so special to us, that when we got engaged there was no other option

Read More

but the fell for our venue.

First of all can I just say thank goodness you all have a sense of humour! You must have thought we were crackers, but you joined in with our chilled personalities and nothing was too much trouble! Hannah's relaxed and meticulous planning meant that I hadn't to worry about a thing on the morning or throughout the day. She had everywhere where they needed to be at the right time even us! If I could have her plan my everyday life I would!

Helen, what an angel! There for me on the morning when our baby girl had me up from 3am, had me drinking coffee and eating and there to keep me calm when I was about to walk down the aisle and again to see her and Hannah's lovely faces to greet us afterwards with champagne was like seeing friends!

Paul for the smooth running and keeping the guests in line when they kept asking if their room was ready! Having a good laugh with us, it's all we wanted our day to be like, a good fun giggle and you all joined in for which I'm so grateful.

My walking down the aisle song was called Feels Like Home, it has a few meanings to us and the fell definitely feels like a home away from home. It's our special place and from the bottom of our hearts thank you all so very much for being a major part of our day!!

We will see you in summer without the children (no 3am starts this time)

Lots of Love

We got married at the Devonshire Fell in August and cannot express how fantastic this place is for a wedding venue! We were so lucky with the weather which meant guests were able to enjoy all the lovely outside space on offer! Throughout our planning the previous organiser left, however upon meeting

Hannah we were quickly reassured there was nothing to be worried about! Hannah was brilliant, so friendly and organised, always quick to respond to any queries, left nothing to concern. On the day everything went perfectly, the food was amazing, every member of staff so attentive. Special thanks to Jennifer who is a credit to the Fell ! She really was a superstar and very attentive the day ran effortlessly nothing was too much trouble and up until the next day when we left you were made to feel like special guests!

the team were so amazing and the venue was everything we could have ever hoped for. All of our guests said how beautiful everything was and we couldn't agree more. You really put our minds at ease that we'd made the right choice from the very first moment we met you at the open day. You were so clear and helpful every time we spoke and made the process so easy for us. Thanks again for everything! Yvonne & Ron x

There are not enough words to describe how amazing The Devonshire Fell made our wedding feel.

From beginning to end the entire team were fantastic.

The whole team were friendly, attentive and worked with ease around the crowds. Special mentions have to go to; Hannah (events manager) for

co-ordinating the entire day with a relaxed approach, a trait that was very welcomed, Helen (deputy manager) for being absolutely fantastic throughout our entire stay, especially in the morning when my bridal party were getting ready- she was always up for a giggle, and then Anita for making the most amazing hot toddies to help me rid my cold. I also have to say an enormous thank you to the chef!!

Gary and I took the decision to offer our guests the choice to pre-select their menu and it was worth every penny! The quality of the food was absolutely amazing and I know everyone loved the food.

To any future couple I cannot recommend The Devonshire Fell enough, partied up with Vanessa Wellock (florist) Kathryn Widdowson (photographer) and Rachel Neilson (make up) you really are in for a very special day where I can guarantee you’ll feel like a king and queen.

Hannah, Helen and team a huge thank you!

See you 18th Nov 2018 for our first anniversary.

We chose the Devonshire Fell for our wedding as it was the perfect venue for us. We wanted a small and intimate wedding so the Dalzell Room was perfect for the ceremony and the wedding breakfast. The hotel room was huge with plenty of room for family, photographer and hairdresser and provided us

with some lovely photos as well as a good nights sleep-the bathroom was gorgeous too. The food was lovely and the menu choice was extensive as well as reasonably priced. We enjoyed a huge breakfast before heading off on honeymoon. The hotel was perfect for our small wedding and we would definitely recommend it.

We had our wedding here this September after both my husband and parents fell in love with the venue a year or so before whilst venue-hunting. The Devonshire Fell provides the best wedding packages - which cover not only the food/dining related parts of a wedding, but even some centre pieces and

top table flowers (and accommodation for the couple the night of the wedding too!) Hannah was all we could ask for in terms of assistance, with brilliant communication. This meant our wedding planning was far from stressful at all. The day of the wedding was executed with perfection - everything was exactly how we expected, and better. Our family/guests had a wonderful time thanks to Hannah’s spot-on organisation. Thank you so much once again for putting together such a fabulous wedding. We would highly recommend this venue to anyone looking to organise a gorgeous wedding with minimal stress.

We had our wedding in Devonshire Fell in July and it was amazing.

The staff were really friendly and helpful and were happy to accommodate various non-standard requests we made.

The food was lovely and we had quite a few compliments on this (one of the best steaks I’ve had!). One of the

main reasons we chose the venue though was for the location – the views are stunning!

The hotel is also perfect for a private wedding – we had the flexibility to use the space in the way that suited us and there was a really friendly and intimate feel, without being short of space.

Hi Hannah,

We really enjoyed our day and thought you all created a lovely relaxed environment. The bar & restaurant manager during dinner and afterwards kept us well informed and checked with me if I was happy with everything and that it was as expected like that our tables were set as I

Read More

expected. Jennifer was also very accommodating ensuring we were ok and that we had a lovely evening and weren't rushed to bed!

Before the wedding you were very flexible and accommodating with what we wanted to do. Helping wherever you could, getting the rooms ready early, setting the tables out to meet our needs, making sure we had everything organised that we needed to, etc.

Everyone really had a good time and enjoyed the day and all the food very much.

You made sure we left with everything we came with and the leftovers (we were eating cheese for quite a while after!) and you were all very nice saying you had enjoyed looking after us. Tim feels like the day was a bit of a blur as we've had such a busy year and he's already talking about doing it all again. So expect a call at some point for maybe another wedding party just without the actual marriage this time.

Many thanks to you all.

Best wishes and we hope to come and stay with you again soon.

OMG where to start!

We recently had our wedding at DF and it is one of the best hotels I have been to. Not only because it has one of the most beautiful views I have seen, or because the food is stunning, or the hotel unique and a little quirky in parts but mostly because of the amazing team led

Read More

by Jen. From start to end Hannah and Helen did a great job helping us plan our wedding and the whole team over the two days were amazing. We wanted something very relaxed and took over the hotel for 2 days.

The hotel has 16 lovely bedrooms and lovely rooms for weddings and dinners. It has a fab conservatory you can sit in drinking whatever and drinking in the view. The food was delicious from when me and my bride arrived on Monday to our last big gorgeous breakfast on Saturday. This place is not only perfect for weddings but for any special occasion whether it is hiring it for a big get together for family or friends, or for a romantic time away.

The DEVONSHIRE Fell is classy but relaxed and you can use the spa facilities at DA as a resident, it's only a 10/15 mins drive away with pool, jacuzzi, steam etc. Burnsall is amazing and a heaven for walkers of all grades whether you walk a pootle along the river to Grassington or hike up into the fells. Visit the DF and Burnsall and you will fall in love. Oh and you can bring your furry babies as well.

Thank you to Jen and your amazing team. We will be back to visit you as soon as possible. You made our year!

Our wedding day was all we could have asked for and more, it was the perfect day from start to finish. We were so glad we picked the Devonshire Fell because of the personal touch from all of the staff we felt like we got to know you all from the day we booked our wedding, every time we visited we

were welcomed by friendly faces who remembered us and we felt like you were counting down to our wedding with us.

We also loved that on the day because we had the hotel exclusively for us and our guests it felt really intimate and just the right size for everyone to chat with each other while we mingled!

The food was gorgeous and everyone commented on how lovely it was.

We also couldn't have asked for a better setting for our wedding pictures in the garden and also being so close to go down to the bridge.

Everything went exactly to plan and I didn't need to worry about a thing! So thank you for that.

Dear Brogan

quietly and efficiently as you did. You made things go very smoothly and we all had the most fantastic enjoyable wedding and weekend at The Fell – it was beyond our expectations. You obviously take the greatest pride in your job and it shows – I have no hesitation in recommending you or the Fell!

Quite a few of our guests told us how much they were impressed with The Fell and the staff there and I know at least two couples who are planning to return as, indeed, we are. We will just leave enough time to continue to savour our special memories!

Could you please pass on our thanks to all the staff, who made this such a special weekend, but special thanks go to the marvellous Chefs for producing fantastic mouth watering food, the excellent professionalism with which it was delivered to our guests.

With very Best Wishes
