Good Hotel Guide Review

In the heart of Wensleydale, Jane and Neil McNair welcome guests to their 18th-century watermill on the River Bain. ‘Beautifully restored, full of character and quirkiness’, it has everything you’d look for in a high-end hotel, with working mill apparatus to boot. The ‘amazing’, huge, dual-aspect, beamed Workshop room has a freestanding copper bath and walk-in deluge shower room, a log-burner, an emperor-size bed, a patchwork sofa – and the mill machinery. The Kiln Room has a king-size sleigh bed, a separate lounge area, a river view. ‘The fudge is a real treat – Temple Spa products, too.’ The hosts ‘clearly and rightly’ show great pride in what they have achieved, and a sense of fun is everywhere apparent. The lounge, warmed by a range fire, houses the grinding stones and spur wheel. Breakfast brings the full Yorkshire and its veggie counterpart, smoked salmon, blueberry pancakes, home-made bread and jams. ‘Jane and Neil’s attention to detail makes this guest house so special.’ (C and PB, and others)
