I took my girlfriend here for a night after proposing to her that afternoon on nearby Sutton Bank. The pub, with its fantastic rooms is absolutely brilliant. We rooms are spacious and spotless and the view over the landscape is breathtaking. The food in the restaurant is also brilliant. The best element of the carpenters arms is the fantastic staff,...

Great location in the Yorkshire countryside. Rooms are built onto the rear of an old inn around a magnificent herb garden. The contemporary finish of the rooms and beautifully appoints made this an outstanding location from which to explore York, Harrogate and the Moors. The deck for summer drinks, the great food and the attentive young staff made our stay... More

Service was first class - welcoming staff with a bottle of bubbly waiting for us upon arrival. This set the scene for a wonderful three nights in sensational rooms that were warm and welcoming. They had wonderful views across the valley with the local church at the back chiming on the hour. The perfumed herb garden out the front was... More

A well run, well decorated pub with rooms. This description doesn't do it justice, the rooms are modern, comfortably furnished with every modern amenity, I would suggest the rooms in the garden are the most comfortable. Great views from the deck next to the dining room. Well cooked food served by first class staff. This is the epitome of what... More

We returned to The Carpenter's Arms recently (a year after our first visit). We were delighted to find that it was still truly wonderful! The gardens had matured and the bathroom products had changed from L'Occitane (a shame) but everything else was of the same high standard. Our wonderful garden room was fabulous, with great views, peaceful and well laid-out... More

We came for 2 nights to celebrate our thirtieth wedding anniversary and wished we could have stayed for a week. We thought it... More

Just got back from a weekend here. Initially when we booked I was concerned about staying in a noisy pub, couldn't be further from the truth. No noise at all in the room. The room was spotless, bathroom was like new. The pub was lovely & food was excellent. Best steak I've had for a long time. Saving the best... More
