The best B&b accommodation we have experienced, which started with a warm welcome by our host Colin. Both Colin and Sandra went out of their way over and above. A beautiful home, outstanding home cooked meals, bread, cake and fudge. The bench has been set with this one,

We were warmly greeted by Colin, who offered us complimentary tea and homemade cake, which we gratefully polished off as we sat in lovely leather chairs by the fire. There was homemade shortbread and other niceties in our immaculate, homely en-suite room, which was very tastefully furnished. Sandra told us that they redecorate every two years. It shows; the place... More

As soon as we arrived we were greeted with afternoon tea and all questions/business conducted in short order - very professional yet relaxed and friendly too. The old building (actually 3 old very narrow buildings combined) was fascinating yet the bedrooms were modern. The location is excellent for C2C walkers. I recommend the breakfast special with the Wensleydale cheese (similar... More

I stopped for one night in May 2015, on my way through on business. Really welcoming house, I got in a little later than I hoped but it was no problem. Really nice big room as clean as a whistle. Perfect location for a wander and to top it off a wonderful breakfast with local produce. Thanks very much! I'll... More

We found this gem after needing a place to stay at late notice. We contacted by phone and arrived 24 hrs later. Colin and Sandra have a gem of a guest house which they are very proud of and you will find a great place to stay.

We have just enjoyed another of our many visits to Willance house, which is more like a home than a house. Returning visits are always a good testimony, and we met another couple who had also been there many times. There is the welcoming tea with Colin's home-made lemon sponge, the lovely comfortable clean and warm rooms, the delicious breakfasts,... More

My husband and I stayed for one night to get a flavour of Richmond before moving there permanently. Mr and Mrs Willoughby have created a beautiful B&B in the centre of Richmond that is full of little thoughtful details that made our stay feel very special. They are also interested in their guests and provided us with very useful advice... More
