Good Hotel Guide Review
You may find it hard to leave this large stone villa with sweeping views south over Swaledale, spacious rooms, home-made cake, triumphant breakfasts and walks from the doorstep. Sheila and Robert Mitchell give a ‘fantastic welcome’ with tea and cake, and offer ‘excellent knowledge of the local area’. The large, light-filled rooms are ‘beautifully furnished’ with Arts and Crafts touches; there are sofas, books and a wood-burning stove in the lounge, and views over the pretty cottage garden and beyond from the conservatory. ‘Extremely comfortable bedrooms’, with exposed-stone walls, pine or brass bedsteads, pretty fabrics and plaid throws, share those ‘superb, far-reaching’ views. All have bathrobes, and baths as well as showers; edible treats, too. Delicious breakfasts are highly praised for their extensive choice, including pancakes, smoked haddock, local eggs, croissants from the village bakery, and Sheila’s award-winning marmalade. The Mitchells advise on dining options (some walkable), can provide picnics and packed lunches, and suggest walks. ‘They were truly a fount of information.’ (Caroline Kaye, Stella Mannion)
