Just back from a 2 night stay at The Old Vicarage, West Witton and have to say what a top B&B! Very well located for touring the Dales, absolutely spotless, lovely comfy bed and wonderfully friendly hosts. The breakfasts were generous (have to admit I left very little) and cooked beautifully. Lovely to be able to come and go as... More

Visited The Old Vicarage for a 2 night stay in July as we were in the area for a wedding. Guests were lovely and accommodating, room was clean, albeit on the small side, and bed was large and comfortable. We were able to come and go as we liked with front door key access, which was what we needed with... More

The Old Vicarage was centrally located to the castle sites we were visiting. We were a bit concerned about its location on the main street running through West Witton, needlessly as even on the street side of the building there was no traffic noise at night. We slept peacefully and awoke to views of the Yorkshire Dales. Breakfast started with... More

Lovely location, great views. We arrived early one day for a wedding in the local area and then were out all day so didn't get to enjoy the place as much as we'd have liked to. Fabulous breakfast (if a little early for post wedding!) - good quality and lots of choice. Very good for the price.

We were welcomed with tea and home made cake and a roaring fire. Bedroom comfortable with views across valley. Breakfast was good as well, with lots of choice. The owners were very friendly and offered lots of information on the area.

We cannot praise this place highly enough ! The owners are just lovely people, not forgetting their daughter of course who was equally lovely! They couldn't be any more helpful and welcomed us to their home and made us feel like old friends. The whole place is decorated to a high standard, our room ( 4 ) was fantastic. Lovely... More

We were visiting the Wensleydale Heifer with family and wanted to stay locally. The Old Vicarage exceeded expectations. We were shown to our four poster room, which was immaculate, then asked if we would like tea in the guest lounge. We were met with a slice of homemade victorian sandwich cake and a pot of tea, we sat on squishy... More
