Win a cosy stay in a historic Yorkshire inn

We’re offering you the chance to win a two-night stay at a cosy and historic inn in beautiful Yorkshire. Here’s how to enter…

Established in 1807, Lancashire-based brewer and hotelier Daniel Thwaites boasts a unique collection of award-winning pubs, inns and spa hotels across England. From Hampshire to the Lake District, the Yorkshire Dales and beyond, each property offers warm hospitality, deliciously crafted cuisine, and plenty of delights to discover, right on the doorstep.

One lucky reader and their guest will win a two-night stay at the historic Golden Lion, a 17th-century coaching inn nestled in the quaintvillage of Settle in picturesque Ribblesdale.

A cosy room at the Golden Lion

This award-winning inn boasts all the charm and character you’d expect from a Yorkshire Dales bolthole. From the roaring fires to the cosy bedrooms, The Golden Lion combines characterful architecture with 21st-century luxury, and provides the perfect base to explore everything that the area has to offer.

Our winners will be treated to a welcome drink on arrival, an indulgent breakfast each morning of their stay, and on one night they’ll enjoy a three-course dinner of seasonal, locally sourced dishes, packed full of flavour.

Steam train crossing the Ribblehead Viaduct, Yorkshire Dales.

Enjoy the finest Thwaites cask ales or decadent cocktails in one of the cosy dining areas and tables overlooking Settle’s picturesque market street.

Settle is a delight to explore, with artisan shops and cafés and more than 70 Grade II listed buildings. And of course, the rolling Dales are right on your doorstep. Nearby are the picture-perfect village of Malham, the spectacular Malham Cove – a huge limestone amphitheatre with views for miles around – and the landmark Ribblehead Viaduct.
