Stayed here for one night on our tour of the Yorkshire Dales. A fabulous all round experience with a great room and surroundings, combined with a hearty breakfast and a lovely host couple in Richard and Trish. Very knowledgeable about the local area and offered good evening dining recommendations. We stayed in Swainstead knot and the whole experience was excellent.

Stay at the Littlebank B&B last month and word cannot describe the beauty of the countryside retreat, left the next day with our batteries fully charged and ready for the next day. Will be staying here again, and to top it all off, there's a beautiful local pub with some smashing real ales within a ten minute walk.

Littlebank is a really lovely, intimate place, Not far from the main road and yet feeling very remote. It is beautifully furnished, full of character, and the welcome is second to none. Home baked cakes in the room, sherry in the decanter and bottled water as well as tea/coffee etc all helped to make us feel very welcome. The ensuite... More

Absolutely wonderful place to stay. Richard and trish (Lord) are perfect hosts. I'm usually very critical but I can't fault this place. We spent 3 nights with them and enjoyed it very much. Like other people have said - the little things like cakes and sherry are so nice. I truly recommend this place. Thanks guys.

We have just returned from the best B&B we have ever stayed in. Peaceful off the beaten track setting with every luxury you could wish for and the most helpful and friendly hosts I have ever come across. We would love to return.

This B & B sits on its own in a lush garden with views over to the hills. The hosts are friendly and welcoming. Despite the relatively soft bed, we slept well and then enjoyed a top quality breakfast. The lovely walk over the fields to the nearest pub (which is excellent) added to the pleasure of our stay.

We were blessed with glorious weather and had a wonderful walking weekend, our first but certainly not our last in the Yorkshire Dales. Littlebank was a delight, charming hosts in Richard and Trish, gorgeous room with all the extras one could wish for and a view through an ancient restored window of fields and cows, all very idyllic. Breakfast in... More

I really don't know where to start with how highly I would recommend this gorgeous gem of a B&B. When we arrived on Saturday we were greeted with warm smiles from Rich and Trish. Their warmth only grew the longer we stayed. We found the little extras like the gorgeous cakes a real bonus and just made us feel right... More

We had a lovely break at Littlebank Country House in Settle. Trish and Richard pay real attention to detail and add lots of little extras to make your stay extra special. It all started with the welcome and assistance with bags. We've got a taste for sherry now - not a drink I would usually try but as there was... More
