Good Hotel Guide Review
Travellers between London and Sunderland have long stopped at this Georgian hostelry which skirts the North York moors. The former coaching inn (Provenance Inns) is much liked nowadays for its warm welcome, homely atmosphere and ‘delicious food’. The drama of the ‘wonderful, light-filled’ drawing room is as much about its ‘quirky’ features (plasterwork starfish, elephants, vines) as its bold styling. Equally dramatic are the well-appointed, eclectically designed bedrooms, some with a four-poster, a stand-alone bath. Candlelit dinners are cooked ‘with flair’; a generous breakfast is locally sourced. Quintessentially English afternoon teas are served in the garden or morning room. The Carpenters Arms, Felixkirk (see main entry), is a sister hotel.
