About Us

The story so far...

It all began when on a beach in Sydney in 1998 an old school friend buried my wallet in the sand!

This peculiarity was further compounded by his promise that whatever money I had to buy a hotel he would match.

True to his word in October 2004 we bought the Kings Head Hotel, Richmond, North Yorkshire (in fact my wife Jo found it!) a hotel so full of character and characters
that we knew this was for us.

The group grew a little over the years, mainly thanks to the returning guests and we bought the beautifully restored Angel & Royal "the oldest Inn in England" the Queen Anne Dower House, Hazlewood Castle (a real castle) and Grants hotel, all grade I & ll listed buildings of great historic importance

Two other additions for you to enjoy are our Imagine Spa which epitomises elegance and luxury and Live for Today adventures.

We have since sold the Kings Head, restored Grants Hotel to its original stunning terraced houses, and more recently sold the Angel and Royal during the lockdown and the Dower House & Spa.

Our remaining Castle hotel, outdoor activity centre and spa continues to offer our famous friendly service in the heart of Yorkshire.

We all enjoy working in such style as there is something very rewarding both for the staff and guests alike
