The Bike & Boot’s hotel in the Hope Valley is set to open March 2022 to encourage adventure-seekers to have a weekend away by offering a modern leisure escape.

The new hotel will be the second of the Bike & Boot Brand and follows the opening of the 65 bed Scarborough site. The company has three further sites in various stages of planning, across the North of England, the Midlands, Wales and Scotland.

Simon Rhatigan and Simon Kershaw, Co-founders of Bike & Boot Inns, said: “We are thrilled with the location of the next Bike & Boot hotel; it’s another site that hugely complements the ethos of the brand.

The Bike & Boot’s hotel in the Hope Valley is set to open March 2022.

"With the strong demand for staycations and the success of our first hotel in Scarborough, we feel confident that our second site will be well received. We can’t wait to welcome guests.”

Interior Design consultants, Rachel McLane Limited, have been enlisted to design the property and help inject the all-important Bike & Boot personality. The company recently won Best Hotel Interior Design of the Year at the Northern Design Awards 2020, for their work on Bike & Boot, Scarborough.

This news comes just months after Bike & Boot opened its first hotel in Scarborough.

Despite launching in the middle of a pandemic, the hotel received an overwhelming amount of support from guests. In the height of summer, the hotel was at 95 percent occupancy, as people flocked to Scarborough to experience the dog-friendly retreat.
