Good Hotel Guide Review
At the foot of the Howgill fells in the far western Dales, the Lappins’ 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 rooms with original stone walls and oak beams; warm colours and block-print fabrics reflect the owners’ time spent in India and south-east 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. Indian dinners are served on Friday evenings and there is a monthly Indian supper club.
