Good Hotel Guide Review
‘We had a delightful stay.’ Guests were impressed by Georgina and Michael Curnow’s well-located B&B within the North York Moors national park. It has views over the Esk valley. The handsome sitting room, with its warm, earthy tones, stone fireplace, antique scales and typewriter, has squashy sofas under huge windows overlooking the garden. Further serenity is offered in the nine bedrooms, each with a ‘comfortable’ bed, a hospitality tray with tea and coffee facilities, a bathroom with Scottish Fine Soaps toiletries. Some mix traditional and contemporary decor, including a dual-aspect double with fireplace and sofa, while beamed attic rooms (one compact), reached by steep stairs, offer far-reaching valley views and country style. Readers stayed in the two-bed May Barn with exposed brickwork, Farrow & Ball tones, a stand-alone, claw-footed bath (with views), a private entrance, patio and sitting room. Everything was ‘well thought through’ by the ‘excellent hosts’; it offered ‘a lot of space for the price’. Scrambled eggs, ‘particularly good’, starred in Michael’s locally sourced, if slightly short, breakfast menu. Bram Stoker’s stomping ground in Whitby is a ten-minute jaunt
