The Devonshire Arms :-
Based in the Yorkshire Dales, The Devonshire Arms is surrounded by some of the most beautiful countryside in England. Be it footpaths along the River Wharfe to the most spectacular ruins of the 12th century Bolton Priory. The view across the Yorkshire Dales from Simons' Seat or the ride on the traditional steam train from Bolton Abbey station. The comfort of the sofa that you sink into in front of the roaring fires of The Devonshire or the work out and swim in The Devonshire Health Spa, there is something for everyone


Wedding Trivia:
SOMETHING "OLD", "NEW", "BORROWED", AND "BLUE"
The tradition of carrying one or more items that are "old", "new", "borrowed" and "blue" also comes from English. There is an old English rhyme describing the practice which also mentions a sixpence in the brides shoe. Something old, signifying continuity, could be a piece of lace, jewelry, or a grandmother's handkerchief. Something new, signifying optimism in the future, could be an article of clothing or the wedding rings. Something borrowed, signifying future happiness, could be handkerchief from a happily married relative or friend. Something blue, signifying modesty, fidelity and love, comes from early Jewish history. In early Biblical times, blue not white symbolized purity. Both the bride and groom usually wore a band of blue material around the bottom of their wedding attire, hence the tradition of "something blue". Originally the sixpence was presented to the bride by her future husband as a token of his love. Today, very often, it is the bride's father who places a coin in the brides shoe prior to leaving home for the church.
