From the moment we met effervescent Lizzie we knew we were in for a treat! She's hilarious & made us feel right at home. Lovely little touches such as homemade cakes on arrival & little chocolates left on the bed were appreciated. The breakfast the next morning made by Lizzie & served by her equally funny husband Laurence was probably... More

Lizzie and Lawrence are the most welcoming and friendly hosts you will find. This, together with the little extra touches are what makes Pennycroft special - from the home baking (cake and biscuits available any time), the most wonderful breakfast with fresh fruit and the biggest and best full english I've seen to the open fire in the front room,...

I'm only just back from a visit to The Yorkshire Dales last night and I had to write this review before I forgot any of the details. Because, details, especially the little ones are the ones that make a stay special. And Pennycroft is extra special. To clear things up a little before I write this review, I have always,... More

My husband and I only spent one night at Pennycroft, but came away feeling almost like family friends! Lizzie and Lawrence are superb hosts and make their guests feel at home. The thoughtful little touches, including home made cake, chocolates and fresh fruit, show that they love what they do and want guests to feel welcome. We'll certainly be back.

We have been many times to Pennycroft and are NEVER disappointed with the friendliness and the hospitality of the owners Lizzie and Lawrence. The breakfasts and all of the fresh cakes and biscuits are plentiful , the B&B is in a wonderful location with fantastic views and some nice pubs across the road. The view from the breakfast table looking... More

The owners at Pennycroft could not do do enough to help us, coffee's and cakes on arrival, enjoyed relaxing in front of the log fire, pub is 30 seconds away, OUTSTANDING breakfast the next morning, all local produce. Fresh as a daisy. The one negative thing about my trip to Pennycroft was not booking in for two nights.

I happened upon this delightful B&B a few years ago whilst working an unusually quiet night shift as a paramedic. My intentions were to take my wife out for a romantic weekend away in the beautiful Yorkshire Dales. The weekend completely surpassed expectations! The village is beatiful and friendly and the scenery is amazing! But most of all, the greatest... More

We booked the Pennycroft for 2 night in March 2014. We loved it as soon as we arrived. The village had charm, character and was busy with hikers, farmers and dog walkers and looked lovely and quaint. When we got to Kettlewell we found the Pennycroft nice and easily. Liz was to hand to welcome us and made us some... More

Just returned from a two night break at Pennycroft and we only have praise for this gem of a place. The hospitality that Lizzie and Lawrence offer is second to none and they are genuine and lovely people. They went out of their way to make us welcome and the home made cake and biscuits add that extra special touch.... More
