Good Hotel Guide Review
In the centre of a ‘fascinating’ town, Denise Carter’s B&B ‘offers good value and plenty of Yorkshire friendliness’. ‘Well-appointed’ bedrooms in the 300-year-old town house and converted stables are supplied with a hot drinks tray and glass bottles of filtered water; ‘the collection of books is a nice touch’. Guests may help themselves to local beers, spirits or soft drinks from the well-stocked honesty bar in the sitting room. In the evening, light bites (soup or an omelette) might be ‘rustled up’; the hostess can recommend nearby eateries for more substantial fare. Home-made sourdough bread, jams and compotes are part of the ‘excellent’ ‘slow-food’ breakfasts that ‘set you up for the day’. On-site parking is a bonus.
