Good Hotel Guide Review

At the foot of the Howgill fells in the far western Dales, Graham and Fiona Lappin’s B&B is surrounded by glorious scenery. Guests are welcomed with cakes and sandwiches on arrival; connoisseurs will appreciate the 12 different loose leaf teas. The restored 18th-century cattle barn now houses chic, spacious accommodation with original stone walls and oak beams; warm colours and block-print fabrics reflect the owners’ time spent in India and southeast Asia – as does the freshly made lassi at breakfast. Taken in the dining room or in the garden (at a time to suit), it also offers home-baked bread, seasonal juices, local specials, perhaps wild boar bacon, venison sausages. Weekday suppers, a monthly Indian supper club, Friday Feasts may be pre-booked.
