Good Hotel Guide Review
A winning combination of ‘first-class hospitality’, ‘divine’ one-Michelin-star cooking and an ‘unbeatable’ location in the Yorkshire Dales draws visitors to Frances and Bill Atkins’s ‘friendly’ restaurant-with-rooms. ‘Things aren’t static here. Little tweaks are continually made to add to the comfort and charm of the place,’ say returnees in 2016. Sample ‘delicious complimentary nibbles’ by the log fire, while Bill Atkins (‘charm personified’) is on hand to recommend the specials of the day. Cooked by Frances Atkins, the ‘superb’ menu uses seasonal ingredients from the kitchen garden and surrounding moorland. ‘There is real cheffery here!’ Bedrooms have ‘everything you’d expect of a luxury hotel’, including magazines and ‘delicious’ biscuits. ‘Accessed via a maze of corridors and a short stretch of wrought-iron balcony, our courtyard room turned out to be a substantial suite, faultlessly decorated. Generous wardrobes separated the bedroom area from a cosy sitting room. On a stormy night, it was immensely pleasant to be in.’ ‘Not cheap, but worth every penny.’ (Francine and Ian Walsh)
