Explore Hotel

Spectacular views and warm Yorkshire hospitality.

With stunning panoramic views across the Calder Valley, the enchanting The New Hobbit Hotel, is the perfect base for exploring the rugged beauty of Yorkshire. Located in the market town of Sowerby Bridge, this traditional Yorkshire stone building has all the home comforts you'd expect from a 4-star country inn.
Our bar and grill restaurant is at the heart of everything we do, providing warm hospitality for families, walkers and sightseers from far and wide. The wood burning stove and oak-topped bar are always a welcome sight.
We have 30 sumptuous bedrooms complete with handcrafted solid ash furniture, wool throws, flat-screen TV and tea and coffee making facilities. And each has a table masterfully cut from the trunk of a tree!
We're ideally situated for seeing all that West Yorkshire has to offer, from the bustling towns of Halifax and Huddersfield to the windswept moors that surround Sowerby Bridge.

The New Hobbit Restaurant

Our restaurant is known for the exceptional quality of it's food. The farmhouse grill menu serves up a selection of mouth-watering dishes that are freshly prepared using locally sourced ingredients.
In winter you can get warm by our log fire as you tuck into a homemade pie or catch of the day, while in summer you can nibble on a Hobbit salad on the outdoor decking area overlooking the countryside.
We also do a hearty breakfast - just as well given that all that invigorating country air will no doubt fuel your appetite. Little ones are catered for with an imaginative childrens menu and, if you're here on a weekend, don't miss our Sunday Carvery with all the trimmings.

The New Hobbit Bar

Whether you're after a refreshing local beer, cheeky glass of red or a hot beverage, our bar is fully stocked with all your favourites. Sit back and relax on handmade Chesterfield sofas in our lounge or take your tipple outside on to the decking area to drink in the incredible view.
If you're feeling peckish but not quite hungry enough for one of our generously portioned meals, why not opt for a sharing board or Hobbit sandwich served with a cup of soup?

Hi Collibosher, Thank you for taking the time to provide us with feedback regarding your recent stay with us here at The New Hobbit hotel. We are sorry to hear your stay wasn't all what you was expecting as this is something we as a hotel don't want to discover when we are meeting guest requirements and making sure their overall stay is enjoyable. In regards to the heating within the room itself, if the overall climate was too cold for yourselves if mentioned to a member of staff or phoned down to our reception using the phone provided in the room we could have looked into this and increased the heat so that the temperature was much more satisfying. We are glad to hear you enjoyed the food within our restaurant, we hope to see you again in the near future. Kind Regards, Team Hobbit
