The Heart Of The,
Yorkshire Dales

The New Inn

Hidden away in the stunning conservation village of Clapham and nestled under the magnificent Yorkshire Three peaks of Pen-y-ghent, Ingleborough and Whernside, The New Inn is a Grade II listed 18th Century Coaching Inn located in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales National Park.

The Inn has recently completed extensive renovations and now boasts a relaxing interior that blends hints of yesteryear with the functionality of modern day comforts.

We have spared no expense in creating a casually elegant atmosphere in all 19 Bedrooms, Bars and our award winning Bistro.

The luxurious bedrooms boast crisp white linen, LED TVs with DVD functionality, Voyage designed headboards, Eco-friendly Baker & Stonehouse furniture with many designer touches from Coachhouse Interiors.

Our 48 seat award winning Bistro 1745 is the perfect place for the intimate dining experience with soft lighting, leather chairs and a unique menu boasting imaginative and sumptuous food prepared with the utmost thought and care by our incredible team. Alternatively the same space becomes the perfect place to host your private event or corporate meeting.

In winter, the Inn becomes the ultimate retreat from the cold with roaring fires and hot mulled wine or cider.

In summer relax with your family or friends in our gorgeous garden or perhaps enjoy nature with  seating next to the Clapham Village waterfall. The perfect place to enjoy a glass of one of our local craft beers, imported wines or a refreshing Pimms cocktail.

Whilst the Inn is open to non residents, we might recommend booking in advance

A Little Bit More About Us

The New Inn – journey back in time and imagine life in this untouched part of the beautiful Yorkshire Dales. Our village of Clapham-Cum-Newby is said to have originally been a Viking community lead by Thorfin of Ravensworth. As a Conservation village, many features of 21st century modern communities don’t exist. There are no street lights, overhead wires or modern architecture. Simple stone buildings are at the core of this village along with stunning bridges, an ancient church and babbling brook. The New Inn began life as a Coaching Inn around the year 1745, if these walls could talk, what a story they might tell!


The Benson family took over the New Inn late February 2013. Within 3 weeks renovation began on the first 7 rooms. As the works progressed layers of old works have been removed and the New Inn began the journey back to its former historical glory. Original oak beams and beautiful stone walls have been restored and now serve as a distinctive feature in this character filled boutique Inn. The renovation of all 20 rooms is now complete as is our Bars and Restaurant with more original features being uncovered during works. The renovation has been a huge task but we believe it has been worth the time and effort, and we hope you will agree and love it as much as we do!
