The room we had was in a separate building 20 yards up the road. We were told they had only started using the room earlier that week. The room was not very big but was very thought out and comfortable. The bathroom was very good with a huge range of Moulton Brown toiletries. Breakfast was excellent

I booked for my husbands birthday, both rooms and the tasting menu. Booking was efficient, asking about dislikes and providing options for the stay. The week before a follow up email with travel information to counter the shortfalls of the sat-nav. On arrival we were shown to our room, tastefully decorated with period furniture, a fantastic bathroom and Molton Brown... More

Excellent stay, the room was very spacious and well presented, the little touches go a long way to impress, fresh milk in the fridge, torch and umbrella to hand, and homemade cakes and cookies on the tea tray, our room Flassendale had a four poster bed and HUGE copper bath that my wife put to good use, beautiful peaceful location...

I stayed here with my wife in one of the four poster rooms. The room was beautiful with a half bottle of champagne chilled awaiting on arrival as part of our package. The weather on arrival was terrible but the outside terrace on Sunday morning was delightful in full blown sun. Real shame we had to check out by 10:30... More

Excellent food and service - as ever .... however they need to invest in a broader range of background music :-) one can only take so much of Paolu Nutini, Ed Sheeran, George Ezra and Moby on shuffle .... I expect a new playlist when we return in summer !

Its not often you come across a place that has it all. Tucked away in a little hamlet in pretty countryside is this gem of a place. On arrival we were shown to our lovely room, decorated with style, classic with a modern feel and a fabulous en suite. Lots of thoughtful extras too. Our warm welcome was just the... More

My husband and I stayed here with another couple for a short break. The Black Swan is fabulous, the staff highly attentive (but not in your face) very knowledgable and friendly. The rooms we were allocated were superb, immaculate and quirky, and everything provided that you could possibly need. We all had the 9 course taster menu .... We have... More

My husband and I took our friends to this quaint family run restaurant on 21 February 2015. We were all extremely impressed with the meal and service and think this worthy of at least 2 Michelin stars. We have dinned at a number of 2 & 3 Michelin starred establishments over the years and were delighted with the whole meal.... More

If it's something special you would prefer The Black Swan accommodation and Michelin Star restaurant will certainly please you !! The bungalow style accommodation houses comfortable period furnishings with all modern conveniences . And the surrounding countryside is an ideal setting for such a lovely gem.

We stayed at the Black Swan for one night whilst eating their tasting menu (reviewed separately). The room was large, bed comfy, bathroom large with free standing bath, separate large shower and underfloor heating. What we really appreciated were the thoughtful touches mentioned by other reviewers - the fresh milk in the fridge, with homemade biscuits and brownies. The pub... More
