Good Hotel Guide Review
Beyond the stone balustrade that encloses the terrace of this substantial Victorian house, the views over sheep-grazed pastures reach towards the Howgill fells and the North Pennines. Pass between imposing gate piers to approach this Grade II listed building; inside, the atmosphere is warm and homey. Pick a book from the ‘wide selection’ on the shelves, pour a drink from the honesty bar, curl up in one of the winged armchairs in the lounge. ‘On a wet and stormy winter evening, the wood-burning stove and efficient central heating kept us warm.’ The traditionally styled bedrooms come in various shapes and sizes, including a family room under the eaves; all are clean and comfortable, with far-reaching views. The Black Swan, Ravenstonedale (see entry), is a popular choice for dinner; transport can be arranged.. ‘Ample’ breakfasts have ‘good’ toast, Cumbrian produce, and, for the lucky, glimpses of red squirrels in the garden. Ask for guidance on local walks: the B&B is on the Coast to Coast and Dales High Way routes, with walks accessible directly from the door. More reports, please.
