As is always our visit here has been great. Wayne his usual charming self and he is some one that has got so much information available in his head his head must hurt. The breakfast good as per. Black pudding is not on the menu at breakfast and he also only mentions fresh orange. If you would like the former... More

We received a warm welcome from Wayne and were pleasantly surprised with our rooms. Everything was of the best quality including Wayne's attention of top quality everything, from bed and bedding to the fantastic en suite.

We really enjoyed our stay at Wensleydale house. Such a warm welcoem from Wayne. My husband has stayed a number of times before when visiting Hawes to buy sheep but this year I went as well. It was very clean, the rooms spacious, lovely bath with views over the dales, quality Sheridan bedding and towels. Lovely breakfast- I will now... More

Once again got a lovely welcome from Jan and Wayne. Had tea served in sitting room with biscuits and cake on arrival. Good night's sleep and a breakfast that could fill a contractor to last all day. Black pudding as usual and the sausage was really tasty. Wayne has plenty of caricature and Jan is the sensible one but they... More

This is the BEST B&B I have ever stayed in. We arrived with friends and were immediately made welcome with coffee and cake - scrummy! Our rooms were lovely, coffee/tea making with attention to detail. Wayne is a great host with a good sense of humour and his breakfasts are to die for with a wonderful bowl of fresh fruit... More

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
