Good Hotel Guide Review
A galanthophile’s paradise awaits in the woodland walks and sculpture-strewn trails at this B&B in the Dales. ‘Lovingly’ restored and run in a ‘highly personal’ manner, Michael Pearson and Eric Culley’s is a manor house with history. Their ‘obvious enthusiasm’ and ‘eclectic’ taste are evident throughout, Guide inspectors say. Examine their vast collection of antiques and tribal and contemporary art – all of it ‘mingles with style’. Arriving visitors are welcomed with tea and scones in the lounge. Make your way, afterwards, to bedrooms with garden views (‘where the best entertainment is found’). ‘Our cosy room had a very comfortable, beautifully draped four-poster bed, a good-sized wardrobe, plenty of seating; the en suite had a roll-top bath and walk-in shower – nice hot water.’ Lazy mornings were made for the ‘relaxed’ breakfasts, served from 9 am. Help yourself to a buffet (fresh fruit, croissants, home-made jam); ‘more substantial fare’ includes locally dry-cured bacon and henhouse-fresh eggs. Ask for a picnic lunch and head to nearby Ingleborough Cave; the hosts have restaurant recommendations come evening (‘torches are provided for the walk into the village’).
