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

Thank you for your kind words and your glowing review. Very happy to hear you completed the Harriot Way and hope Joyce was able to enjoy the rest of the walk with you.

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

Thank you for posting such a great review. We really enjoyed your visit and your camaraderie & banter filled the house - it was great, as was hearing of your adventures each morning - was totally blown away by the distances you covered in a day.

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

We enjoyed 2 nights at Wensleydale House. Wayne is a great host and really looks after you. We had 2 fabulous breakfasts with more choice than you could ever ask for. We stayed in the Hardraw room which has a lovely comfortable bed and an ensuite with a corner bath. This was very welcoming after climbing Pen-Y-Ghent. The atmosphere is... 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.

My boyfriend and I wanted to combine a nice walk with a nice stay in a B&B. We chose Hawes as it is situated in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales, a pleasant little town and perfect for hikes. We chose the Wensleydale House cause of the good rewies and welcoming description on their homepage. It was even better than... More
