The family home of the Vavasours for some nine hundred years and first mentioned in the Domesday Book, work on the current Hazlewood Castle was begun in 1283 by William Vavasour, one of the most respected knights of Edward I.
Hazlewood's medieval grandeur is immediately apparent to guests as they approach its majestic grey stone walls. Inside, sympathetic renovation provides all the traditional comforts of an elegant private house while preserving its many unique and historic aspects. The same distinction is evident in the comfort, quality, and style of the 21 guest bedrooms and suites, each designed to provide a relaxing haven yet with the most up to date communications systems discreetly available for those who need to keep in touch with the world outside. Restaurant '1086' serves the fine cuisine of Chef Director John Benson-Smith and his brother Matthew in an agreeably informal atmosphere, with innovative bistro meals also available in the Prickly Pear Cafe. Hazlewood Castle also specialises in high quality conferences and banqueting, with superb facilities capable of accommodating up to 120 guests. Keen to communicate their belief that food is all about enjoyment, John and Matthew have established a highly successful cookery school to educate, entertain, and above all put the fun back into cooking.
Standing in 77 idyllic acres of parkland and landscaped grounds only twenty minutes from Leeds and York, a famous Yew Tree Walk, croquet lawn, and clay pigeon shooting are all available on site.
