The Calendar Girls

& The Devonshire Arms

The Devonshire Arms is where it all started, following the sad untimely death of John Baker of Cracoe in 1998 from non-hodgkin's lymphoma.

Tricia Stewart a friend and neighbour of John's widow, Angela, met with other friends from the Rylstone Women's Institute at what was then the snug bar, it was here the decision was made to revamp an old idea of Tricia's and create a Women's institute calendar with a real difference from previous offerings.

All proceeds would go to the leukemia charity and they set themselves a tough target of raising £5000.00.

Several more meetings were held in the Devonshire Arms and finally the decision was made to produce the iconic and nor world famous calendar.

The beauty of it all was that everything was done with feeling by instinct (and no doubt a few gin and tonics) and to everyone's amazement it was a phenomenal success, so much so even H.M. the Queen's Mother requested their copies.

It was in what is now The Grill Room of The Devonshire Arms that the public launch of the calendar took place in April 1999 to a mass of people and the media. The rest, as they say, is history.

P.S. The £5000 target fund thought to be so tough, has now exceeded £4 million!

Just some of the many reasons to visit The Devonshire Arms at Cracoe:

Cycling & Walking

Close to the start of the 'Way of the Roses' cycle root and on the gateway to one of the most spectacular dales in Yorkshire, muddy boots are always welcome at The Devonshire Arms! We have the largest carpark in The Dales ideal for camper vans and cyclists alike. We also provide secure cycle storage should you need it.

Traditional Inn

We haven't succumbed to the 'modern winebar' aesthetics like so many other pubs and inns. We've maintained our traditional interior, with three open fireplaces and low timber beams. We believe it the perfect environment to warm the hands after exploring The Dales or relax with the best food and drink in the area.
