This was the best B&B we've ever stayed in! Accomodation was first class. Made to feel very welcome with a pot of tea and cake on arrival whilst sitting by the fire. Very friendly couple who own the place who are very helpful and full of information. Set in wonderful surroundings and only a stones throw from the local pub.... More

The room was beautifully laid out with great furnishings, tea and coffee and even some bubble bath in the bathroom. There is a great big yorkshire breakfast to look... More

Crakehall Watermill House, a beautiful setting and very accessible to many places of interest. Alison & Lionel, a lovely couple, who made us very welcome. Very comfortable, immaculately clean, room with lovely en-suite, and very relaxing lounge for guests to use. The minute we arrived we felt relaxed and ready to enjoy our holiday. Enormous breakfasts - no need for... More

Alison and Lionel couldn't have been more hospitable....tea and homemade cake on arrival and Alison even gave us a lift to a nearby pub for dinner! The location is a real plus for this B and B as well. It's just 15 mins from the A1 and within easy reach of villages like Leyburn and Wensley. The rooms are spotless... More

Lionel and Alison, of Watermill House near Bedale, are the best possible hosts. Their home is welcoming, relaxed and totally unpretentious - perfect for a soothing holiday. My recent visit (my fourth) was, as expected, a delight. The rooms are comfortable and beautiful, with attention to little details; little vases of fresh flowers from the garden greeted us and Lionel,... More

Where do we start? This bed and breakfast is perfect. It is located in the village of Crakehall near Bedale. This is and ideal base to explore Yorkshire and the Lake District, or to just relax. The rooms are large and tastefully decorated. Our room had a large ensuite. There is a sitting room downstairs for the guests to use... More

Was treated to a surprise weekend away at the Crakehall Watermill b+b and was hugely impressed by the very warm welcome from Lionel and Alison. The b + b was very cosy, and the rooms faultless - spacious, clean and well maintained. The bathroom was also lovely - a powerful shower and a good sized bath. The breakfast was hearty... More

I have just spent a lovely couple of days staying in a B&B situated in Crakehall, a delightful village in the Yorkshire Dales. The B&B, Crakehall Watermill, is a wonderfully charming place, set in its own grounds, consisting of the house plus two holiday cottages, a caravan site and of course the watermill and stream. The B&B’s rooms are large... More
