The new owners of the historic North Yorkshire restaurant the Cleveland Tontine have announced they are to invest £1m to transform it into a top of the line boutique hotel.

Provenance Inns and Hotels Group acquired the Cleveland Tontine, between Northallerton and Stokesley, at the beginning of June and now have plans to add to its seven 5-star rated rooms by converting the former coachhouse on the site.

Director Michael Ibbotson said: “The condition of the coachhouse has deteriorated over time and we felt that it provided a great opportunity to achieve two goals: to restore it and to be able to offer more rooms for our guests at this unique location on the edge of the North York Moors.”

The Tontine is the ninth acquisition for the group, which also owns the West Park Hotel in Harrogate, the Carpenters Arms at Felixkirk and the Black Bull at Moulton.

Provenance Inns and Hotels offers 5-star rated bedrooms at five of its eight Yorkshire locations: The Carpenters Arms in Felixkirk near Thirsk, The Durham Ox in Crayke, The Oak Tree Inn in Helperby near Boroughbridge, the West Park Hotel in Harrogate and West Acre Lodge in Boltby.

The Group recently won Best Accommodation Operator of the Year at the Morning Advertiser’s Publican Awards to add to its list of prestigious national awards.

The Cleveland Tontine is at Staddlebridge, just off the A19, and is close to the National Trust-owned Mount Grace Priory and to the long distance Cleveland Way and Lyke Wake Walk.
