Grounds at Chevin Hotel
Chevin considers itself lucky to be set in 44 acres of unspoilt, ancient woodlands. The word Chevin means a ‘ridge of high land’ and is the name given to the ridge overlooking Otley, which is largely covered in woodland. The hotel sits in the centre of this ancient and protected woodland, made up of silver birch, beech and oak, so the grounds provide a choice of walks with winning views across the Wharfe Valley. For loge locations please view a map here.
Walk on the wild side...
Chevin is home to lots of wildlife, with roe deer being spotted regularly here, as well as badgers, squirrels, water voles and many different bird species. Guests are invited to fish in the main lake which is stocked with plentiful roach and trout, plus several families of friendly ducks...who often venture over to the lodge patios seeking free food!
If you take a picture of wildlife in the hotel grounds, please feel free to share the picture on Facebook or Twitter using the hashtag #chevinwildlife, for everyone to enjoy.
Picnic lunches can be taken anywhere in the hotel grounds and the dotted picnic tables can also be booked for lunch or afternoon tea - just let the team know when and where you'd like to eat and we'll be happy to organise.
Chevin’s grounds include a full size tennis court where guests are welcome to play. Rackets and tennis balls can be borrowed from reception.
