A DALES hotel made famous as the location where Jeremy Clarkson threw a punch which ended his Top Gear career is set to feature in a new television series.

Hoteliers Steph and Dom Parker, who rose to fame on Gogglebox, have filmed a new series for Channel 4, The Great Hotel Escape, which features Simonstone Hall near Hawes in the Yorkshire Dales.

The 20-part documentary series follows the couple as they meet people who are planning to open, or who are already running, their own historic hotels in some of Britain’s most beautiful locations.

Each episode goes behind the scenes to meet the individuals who have risked everything to turn their dream of running a hotel into a reality.

It features Simonstone Hall near Hawes which hit the headlines in 2015 after a fracas involving Clarkson.

Jake Dinsdale, managing director of Simonstone Hall, took over the hotel at the age of 26 following its sale in early 2016.

He set about the task of transforming the handsome country house hotel into a successful destination venue and has since won several national awards including a listing on the industry ‘Power List’ and a champion in the Countryside Alliance Rural Enterprise awards.

He said he is delighted to feature in the new programme and Ms Parker said: "We’ve had tremendous fun filming the series and have met some exceptionally brave souls over the past 12-months, including Jake."
