Great B&B close to the centre of Richmond. Room good and clean. The B&B is popular with walkers and the hosts provide good storage for boots, sticks, etc. and shortbread in the room. As good as the welcome is, the truly outstanding feature of this B&B is the breakfast which includes the offer of kedgeree, and the option of vegetarian... More

Fabulous and extremely comfortable accommodation in a great location. Most welcoming hosts and a wonderful breakfast. Nothing was too much trouble. A beautifully presented bed and breakfast, would thoroughly recommend it.

Fantastic accommodation, lovely home made bread and cakes, and great choice of quality food for breakfast. I would heartily recommend Willance House, and hope to be able to return again soon. Nothing was too much trouble.

Booked at shortish notice, and then revised arrival time (late evening). No problem, and we were received with a warm welcome and offers of drinks by the owners. The room and facilities were all that we could have asked for. Top quality bedding, and a bed we could get lost in. Breakfast was superb, and it seemed there was nothing... More

Thank you for choosing to stay with us on your way back to Scotland after visiting your family. We have provided top of the range beds from a hotel supplier along with quality Egyptian cotton sheets so we are very pleased that you found these so comfortable and that you found breakfast to be 'supurb'. We do hope that you... More

Willance House is a lovely, understated b&b where everything has been thought of. We were breaking a journey between Scotland and Suffolk & arrived a bit frazzled, but by next morning we were thoroughly relaxed. Our bed was supremely comfortable, the street was quiet, the shower was a joy and every detail was catered for, including a jug of fresh... More

Visited this fabulous guest house for 2 nights in mid-August and could not have been more impressed. This lovely house on a lovely street in historic Richmond provides the very best in B&B accommodation and service.

Sandra and Colin have restored this historic house to modern accommodation standards while keeping true to the original structure and historical importance. This B&B is among the best on the Coast to Coast route and I'm grateful to British and Irish Walks of Cheltenham for booking this excellent spot for two nights. Where to begin? Fresh, locally sourced breakfasts that... More

Having returned from yet another excellent visit recently, it is just about impossible to add anything to the host of compliments I or others have given before. The hospitality is as warm as ever, the food is still consistently superb, the room just as comfortable as always. We met yet somebody else from a previous visit, who is a regular... More

Amazing, the highlight of the walk for me, accommodation wise at least. A warm welcome on arrival with home made fudge. Rooms well maintained and clean. Breakfast was fantastic, can't recall eating better bacon anywhere. Couldn't recommend highly enough.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review and for rating your stay as 'amazing'. We are so pleased to read your comments. We are very lucky that our local butcher opens extremely early so that we can purchase bacon fresh each day for breakfast. Thank you so much for your high recommendation of Willance House. More
