Nestled in the heart of the captivating Yorkshire Dales, Beck Hall is set to make history as England's first entirely plant-based hotel, with the launch of their new menus on December 1st, 2023. As a travel agent based in Canada, I am thrilled to introduce you to this groundbreaking initiative, where compassionate living meets the epitome of comfort and luxury.

A Culinary Revelation

Beck Hall's menus have always been infused with a plant-based touch, but owners Louise and Andy Macbeth have chosen to take a bold step forward in embracing a fully plant-based approach to their catering. Their decision was born from a personal journey towards veganism and a desire to offer a superior dining experience that aligns with their values.

A Haven for Vegans and Food Enthusiasts

Starting December 1st, 2023, Beck Hall will stand as a sanctuary for those who appreciate the art of vegan cuisine. The talented chefs at Beck Hall will craft a menu that celebrates the diverse flavors that the plant kingdom has to offer, ensuring a culinary experience that tantalizes the taste buds.

More Than Just Food: A Holistic Vegan Experience

Beck Hall's commitment to compassion extends beyond the dining table. From vegan toiletries to in-room amenities, every aspect of the Beck Hall experience is designed with the mindful traveler in mind. Even the laundry detergents, conditioner, duvets, and pillows reflect their dedication to ethical living.

Upholding a Vision of Compassion

Louise and Andy's journey towards plant-based living was inspired by a moment of empathy for the animals. The realization that cows were calling out for their calves, who had been separated from them, struck a chord with the Macbeths. This experience ignited their commitment to a plant-based lifestyle, eventually leading them to transform Beck Hall into a haven for conscious travelers.

Continuing a Legacy of Excellence

Beck Hall, already an award-winning hotel, has received accolades such as Trip Advisor’s Travelers’ Choice 2023 and a Bronze Award from Green Tourism. The transition to a fully plant-based menu has garnered praise from fellow vegan businesses, underlining the positive impact that aligning ethics with business can have on both the environment and the community.
