Good Hotel Guide Review
International joie de vivre is found in well-travelled Charlotte and David Reilly’s revamped former Victorian school and headmaster’s house. In a pretty Dales village on the River Ure, it has lofty, characterful bedrooms, perhaps with a bedhead fashioned from an antique Moroccan window; Caribbean seashells; a private terrace with a hot tub worthy of California, alongside contemporary earth tones and exposed timbers. All rooms have fabulous views, posh smellies, fluffy robes. Afternoon tea is worth the trip to the Master’s Room, while in the shamelessly romantic dining room Chef Dan Shotton’s seasonal, locally sourced fare includes duck, beetroot and chicory; halibut, butternut squash, smoked eel.
