Set in a large Victorian Terrace this is a lovely B&B with three bedrooms. No effort is spared by Kim and Ann to make your stay memorable. Very friendly hosts with good advice on where to shop and eat. It is a big old house and I assume listed to some degree as all the original features are intact -... More

Having read all about Yorkshire hospitality, expectations were high (plus this was our first B&B in England). And Arnot House came through like a pro. The Kirkham room was extremely comfy and...

This was definitely the best B&B we stayed in over 4 weeks in the UK & Ireland! Kim & Ann were very friendly & helpful hostesses & made us feel very welcome. They let us use a parking permit so we could park free on their street. Their recommendation for dinner at The Hole in the Wall pub was a... More

We walked here from the train station, which was very doable, the hardest part was the stairs to our room, and it was also an easy walk into town. The host is very nice and helpful, especially with info on what there is to see & do. The room was good sized and the bathroom was very large, which was... More

Thank you for your comments and I am pleased that you enjoyed your recent stay at Arnot House - which is a Victorian house built in 1885.
