Our party took over the whole house and Vanessa made everyone extremely welcome, she served a delightful dinner and an excellent English breakfast. To top it all great value. The mobile reception for Vodafone works and there is free Wifi.

We stayed for two nights in the kingsize room 7 -fantastic views and the most comfortable bed ever! Vanessa was the perfect host - she has great knowledge of the local area and provides a wonderful breakfast in a very relaxed atmosphere.

Venessa was really accomodating from the first telephone call, recommending the impressive Wensleydale Heifer and allocating us 3 lovely rooms for a... More

Stayed here for two nights with my wife and we both have nothing but praise for the location, rooms and welcome from owner Vanessa, who could not do enough to make our stay enjoyable. The location would be difficult to beat - a stunning large country house with extensive grounds and complete with rabbits and wild fowl - while the... More

It was huge and the sofa beds were as comfortable as the large bed in the room. The shower was powerful & very well equipped bathroom . The whole house... More

When I booked, the family room was already taken so Vanessa very kindly offered me a bedroom with an extra sofabed so we were able to stay with our two children. The room was big and airy and very...

When we arrived we were greeted by Vanessa & Scout (her beautiful dog). We were taken to our room and all I could say was, "wow". The room was beautifully decorated with lovely furniture including an oak bed, chairs and a table and also a settee. The bathroom was beautifully fitted with luxurious soaps, shower gels and Egyptian cotton towels.... More

we booked a room on the internet but were not expected apparently an email had been sent but not received. This meant we waited until about 5pm for our room, which is really not acceptable after a long journey. The B and B is in a lovely isolated location with country road assess excellent hospitality and advice given about where... More

Hello Dr Spincer, thank you for taking time to post your review. Given I emailed you, and showed you the email after you booked a room only available to guests with mobility difficulties, asking you to advise which room you wanted it is a little unfair not to mention that you failed to get back to me. I showed you... More
