Lovely place to visit. Run by a great gentlemen called Barry. Breakfast was lovely and rooms were clean and tidy. Central location to town where there are plenty of places to eat and drink. Nothing was too much trouble for Barry.

Barry, the owner, is an excellent host and a lovely man. He kept us entertained with his stories and his knowledge of the area, and was kind enough to recommend another excellent B&B in nearby Helmsley for our second night. The breakfast was really tasty, the room clean and comfortable and we especially liked the very 'unique' style of decor.....and... More

Barry, the owner's hospitality is second to none as is his vast knowledge of Yorkshire - near and far, which proved invaluable when planning our daily excursions. His home help, both Joannas, also added to our family's comfort and nothing was too much trouble for them, helping us with bits of laundry and cooking us absolutely delicious breakfasts. The house...

Wonderful Yorkshire hospitality in a charming house with a traditional English garden. Our host, Barry, is an enthusiastic advocate of the area. He is a great source of advice for local lore, places to see and places to eat. Our room was huge, the bathroom well appointed and the breakfasts were delicious and kept us going most of the day....
