We had dinner with friends and then stayed the night. Dinner was excellent. We both had a good night's sleep followed by a stunning breakfast which was cooked to order. We lingered over coffee way past the end of breakfast but no one rushed us out. IT was a very pleasant stay one which I am sure we will do... More

Really enjoyable Sunday lunch. Good size portion. Friendly staff. Nice atmosphere with a great mix of people. Can easily get three courses and a drink for under £20. Good choice and plenty of parking. There isn't much more to say. Tha

A friend and I stopped here for 2 nights after purchasing a deal. We were welcomed by the owner Nick who could'nt do enough for you. We stayed in the twin room which was clean and had everything we needed. Situated on the A65 is great to get to many places. Ingleton waterfalls trail is worth it if you love... More

We had never stayed here before and had booked in for a long, Birthday Weekend with our Boxer Dog Ted. We had room 6, which was lovely and warm, with underfloor heating in the en-suite and an electric fire as back up to the Central Heating - Bed very comfortable and the Shower powerful - what more could you want?...

We love the Yorkshire Dales and have stayed at a number of locations including Grassington. We were looking for a change and came upon the Craven Arms by chance. It had just been purchased by a local farmer and converted into the current accommodation. We were early visitors and have returned several times since. The location is ideal for exploring... More
