Good Hotel Guide Review
There’s ‘plenty of Yorkshire friendliness’ at Denise Carter’s ‘good-value’ B&B, in the centre of a ‘fascinating town to explore’. ‘Well-appointed’ bedrooms (some spacious; one, a ‘tiny but perfectly adequate’ single room) in the 18th-century house are traditionally decorated; each has its own little library and a hospitality tray. Guests may help themselves to local beers, spirits or soft drinks in the well-stocked honesty bar. In the evening, light bites such as 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 a worthy part of ‘slow-food’ breakfasts that ‘set you up for the day’. A bonus: on-site parking.
