Dating back to the seventeenth century, Ye Olde Bell Hotel & Spa is an independent retreat in the picturesque village of Barnby Moor, just over four miles from Retford.
With our regular service running from Hull to King's Cross via Retford, an afternoon or weekend of indulgence and relaxation is never too far away.
The privately-owned hotel boasts 59 charming rooms that have welcomed an array of famous guests throughout its rich history. A young Queen Victoria and her mother even stayed over during the 1800s. On top of this, the site has been a private home, a chapel, and a headquarters during the Second World War.
Each room, suite and lodge at Ye Olde Bell reflects this interesting heritage. Specially designed to keep in line with traditional elements of the location, the hotel is embellished with period furniture and luxurious fabrics. Meanwhile, guests can enjoy contemporary fixtures in bathrooms and bedrooms.
During summer 2017, Ye Olde Bell opened the doors to its new multimillion-pound spa. Kitted out with plenty of treatment rooms, relaxation areas and an indoor and outdoor vitality pool, as well as a stunning hair and beauty salon, the spa is a fantastic place to switch off and unwind.
Treatments from all around the world are offered at Ye Olde Bell. For example, the Turkish-inspired Rasul® mud cleansing is a truly revitalising experience for individuals and groups.
Meanwhile, you can choose from a wealth of treatments and unique therapies. Treat yourself or a loved one to massages, facials, wraps, exfoliation, manicures, pedicures and anti-aging treatments.
Afterwards, why not take advantage of one of the hotel's eateries? The Restaurant Bar 1650 has an AA Rosette Menu, whilst the St Leger Bistro-by-the-Bar serves up a plethora of classic and creative meals.
If you fancy exploring the local area, Ye Olde Bell is closely located to a diversity of activities and attractions.
