Good Hotel Guide Review
A unique, centuries-old working waterwheel helps generate business for Jane and Neil McNair’s ‘warm and welcoming’ guest house in the Yorkshire Dales national park. The late 18th-century corn mill has been sympathetically refurbished, showcasing its mighty stone walls, huge beams and original equipment. Ask the ‘friendly, relaxed’ hosts for a tour to see the restored mechanics in action, ‘it’s astonishing’. Quirky touches add personality, including colourful patchwork sofas and a life-size bulldog statue. Enormous Workshop bedroom has a wood-burning stove, freestanding copper bath and operating machinery; Kiln has historic earthenware drying tiles. All rooms have a king-size or emperor bed. The ‘delicious’ menus use local ‘home-made produce in abundance’; eggs from neighbours’ hens, fish from Whitby, meat from nearby farms. Typical dishes: spiced Dales lamb rump, sweet potato chips; Carricks smoked salmon, beetroot fritters, horseradish cream. Craft beers come from Yorkshire. ‘Generous dinner portions, and a comprehensive selection at breakfast, fuelled us to enjoy the magnificent walking straight from the door.’ (Christine and Philip Bright, and others)
