We booked two nights as a combined birthday/Christmas gift and are so glad we did. Astra and Ian were delightful hosts who instantly made us feel welcome, relaxed and totally looked after. We soon felt like we'd known them for years! We had the Field room with an extra fold out bed for our daughter. The room is huge with... More

This is a lovely B&B in a very peaceful countryside location but close to the A1 and very convenient for the lovely market town of Bedale. Ian and Astra were very welcoming and we had a lovely well furnished and spacious room with a four poster bed and large bathroom. The full English breakfast really set us up for the... More

I stayed here due to work commitments, but it was fantastic and I'd be very happy to return for leisure. The hosts, Ian and Astra, were very friendly and easy going. The welcome I received on such a dismal November evening was great - help with my bags and a nice glass of wine to unwind - perfect! Ian's breakfasts... More

Really nice people who made us feel very much at home. Good local knowledge means you're never short of a recommendation for somewhere to visit or dine. My breakfast included black pudding, fried bread and a perfectly fried egg - the holy trinity of an excellent weekend fry-up (bangers and bacon were great too) - making it a terrific start... More

October 2014 return visit after 10 years plus. Stayed three nights on the spur of the moment and glad we did. The room was on the ground floor and contained a wet room with roll-in shower in addition to the other amenities described by other reviewers. Many thanks to Ian and Astra for an excellent stay.

A lovely location. Peace and tranquility. Met by Ian on our arrival and shown to our room the Field room. Large and spacious with tea and coffee making facilities with the addition of bottled water and biscuits. A great host who also booked us into a local pub for our evening meal.

We were delighted to see this review and the word "tranquility" used as part of the description of this guest experience. Our location is easily accessible but well away from the nearest road it is a very peaceful spot and that is one of our most regularly received comments. It is great to hear that these guests had a good... More

A true Yorkshire welcome, only sorry we only booked for one night each way as it's a great location to explore the Dales. Great knowledge of local pubs and taxis which Ian booked for us both nights. Very spacious and comfortable accommodation set off with a hearty breakfast.
