It was lovely, we took the dogs to the beach, had a walk around, came back, got washed and changed and went down into the bar for a meal... More

Stayed for two nights. The location is fabulous with lovely views over the North Yorkshire Moors. Room very comfortable and clean with a good selection of tea, coffee, biscuits etc. Both evening meals and breakfasts were of good quality with prompt service. A good selection of real ales and reasonably priced wine on offer. Would recommend.

great hotel, lovely rooms, and good service. Steak pie to die for. Good ales and fair selection of wines friendly staff Views across the moors is great and the night sky is clear. A bit hard to find as signage in the area is a little scant, Satnav tends to stop befroe you get there.

We moved on to Ainthorpe and followed the signs for The Fox and Hounds not knowing what to expect. Although the restaurant was very busy ,... More

This pub is a great base for walking and exploring the North York Moors National Park. The staff are very friendly and they provide an excellent pub menu. Rooms are comfortable, though the bathrooms are basic and due for refurbishment. Wonderful views and especially popular on weekends- so do book in advance. Resident chickens help provide fresh English breakfasts and... More

...was what we ten hot and weary walkers wanted coming down from Danby Rigg on a ten miles walk and this inn was a most welcome stop for those beers. What a lovely place with a lovely lady serving behind the bar - made our day!
