Good Hotel Guide Review
Karen and John Clarke’s Georgian country house stands on a rustic lane outside the town, with views over the ruins of Easby Abbey from its large garden. B&B accommodation is in spacious suites in a dedicated wing of the house. Each lavishly decorated room has a huge bed dressed with a velvet coverlet, throws and heaps of cushions; each, too, has a log-burner or open fire – even a champagne fridge, should the mood strike. The gardens are flanked by a short woodland walk, an orchard and a paddock – head out for a wander before returning to afternoon tea in the drawing room. Breakfast at a time to suit: there are home-made preserves with fruit from the kitchen garden; poached pears from the orchard; local bacon; eggs from resident hens. Stroll along the banks of the Swale into Richmond.
