What a lovely b&b. Even when we arrived we where made welcome with a lovely cup of coffee and beautiful cake and biscuits. The room was very nice and clean with ensuite and a nice big corner bath ideal when you've been out walking all day. Wayne was really nice and friendly giving us good advice and a great breakfast....

This is a wonderful b&b with very friendly hosts. Wayne is very chatty and made us chuckle a few times, so we were made to feel at home! He cooks a great breakfast too, and there was a very nice bowl of fresh fruit to start. In fact the attention to detail was excellent, including a nicely presented tea tray... More

This was the second stop on our Harriot Way Walk. We arrived after a wet, miserable walk from Aysgarth and were welcomed by Wayne who offered us a nice pot of tea with cake. Our room was immense and had a very comfortable bed. The view from our large window showed part of the route for the next days walk.... More

Excellent! Wayne gave us a great welcome and we had lots of laughs with him over the weekend. Great Aussie sense of humour. Four blokes with bikes were easily accommodated. The bikes were securely locked in the ample basement. Breakfast was simply wonderful, a really wide choice and as much tea and coffee as we could consume. Beds really comfortable,... More

Lovely comfortable bed. Got a warm welcome from Wayne and offered help for if and when we needed any. Stayed 2 nights and the breakfast was great. I asked if there was any black pudding but was unavailable that morning, I got 2 pieces the next. Worth asking for if you like it. We had the middle bedroom which was... More

Stayed here with friends while doing the Herriot Way. Wayne was very welcoming and chatty. We had tea, coffee and cakes in the lounge before being shown to our rooms which were spotlessly clean, good comfy beds, nice big shower with plenty of hot water. The fantastic view was just the icing on the cake. Absolutely delicious breakfast, enough choice... More

Perfect B&B stay in Hawes. Had a large front room with bath. Very nicely decorated and very comfortable. Wayne is a great host. He provided service above and beyond the call. I plan to start at Hawes when I return to do the northern half of the Pennine Way, and I definitely hope I can stay here again.

All our bedrooms are spacious with either twin, king or super king beds and crisp modern ensuite rooms.

The house is centrally heated and on cooler nights an open fire can be enjoyed in the lounge room.
