We have just returned from a 1 night stay in the Middleham room at the Wensleydale heifer and was very disappointed with the size of the room and the bed. After hearing so much about this fantastic hotel and how excellent the accommodation with the themed rooms were we couldn't believe it when the door was opened to this small,... More

We are fans of Travel Zoo, and chose this venue from one of their offers. As an offer (D,B&B), it was great value. From outside, it looks like an ordinary village pub (which presumably it once was), but inside has been totally transformed. Many rooms are themed, and we chose the whisky room - all done out in tartan, and... More

We recently stayed at the Wensleydale Heifer for our 10th wedding anniversary. To start, it is in a picturesque setting and near to some fantastic walking territory. From the minute we booked the stay to checking out we were impressed with the attention to detail and care we received. We were greeted by very friendly and personable staff. The woman... More

We have just spent two nights at The Wensleydale Heifer. It is perfect - from the handmade chocolates and cakes in the room to the fabulous food and service. We stayed in the champagne room which came with its own champagne fridge - it also has a gorgeous bathroom and is decorated in a lavish style. The restaurant service is... More

This is right up there with the best as both a place to stay and to eat. The atmosphere is friendly and relaxed and the service just right. The staff are helpful but not obtrusive and the standard of service is outstanding. The room we had was comfortable, well maintained and welcoming. The place has bags of character and is... More

We had a really super overnight stay, without exception all the staff are wonderful and nothing is too much trouble. A mistake had been made in our booking but it was quickly put right without any fuss or bother. The evening meal was delicious, only wish the Wensleydale Heifer was nearer home, we would definitely be regulars. Thank you all... More

We checked the website to see the menus. There was a fixed price/early bird menu offering good value but no details of the terms and conditions. We felt the prices of the A la carte was rather more than we wanted to pay and so stopped by the restaurant on a Tuesday morning to"have a look see". Outside was a... More

Thank you for your review but also a big BUT ..... You turned up for a 7 pm booking demanding the early bird menu that is printed outside the restaurant and very clearly states that it is only available from 6-6-pm, the fact that this seem to make the party very annoyed is not our fault that you misread what...

We booked a one night stay here over Christmas as something to look forward to and we were not disappointed! The whole stay was amazing from start to finish. We stayed in the champagne room - simply beautiful and the attention to detail beyond perfect. The food was out of this world and every member of staff we came into... More
