Good Hotel Guide Review
On the outskirts of a rural village, in an area popular with walkers and cyclists for its vast open moors, this Swaledale B&B is run by ‘marvellous hosts’ Sheila and Robert Mitchell. Bedrooms with ‘superb’ countryside views are supplied with hot drinks and dressing gowns; all but a single room have a bath and shower. Tea and home-made cake are served in the conservatory; the lounge has an honesty bar, and a log fire in winter. ‘A great start to the day’, the ‘varied’ breakfast includes kippers and Yorkshire rarebit alongside home-baked bread and award-winning marmalades. Special diets can be catered for. The ‘thoughtful’ owners provide bicycle storage and a drying room; the packed lunches are ‘very good’, too.
