History of The Coniston Hotel Country Estate & Spa

The history of our hotel

Luxury in the heart of Yorkshire.

Set within the grounds of a breathtaking 1400-acre estate, The Coniston Hotel Country Estate & Spa has been owned by the Bannister family for more than 50 years.

The hotel and estate began life as a farm shop selling produce grown on the estate. Over the years, the hotel has evolved, becoming one of North Yorkshire's most sought after destination hotels.

Today you'll find luxurious bedrooms and self-catering cottages, award-winning dining, a wide range of country pursuits, and state-of-the-art spa facilities. We're the perfect choice for a romantic escape with someone special, a getaway with the whole family, or a celebration, and we pride ourselves on offering a friendly service in truly unique location.

The Bannister family invite you to relax, unwind, and make yourself at home.
