I am grateful for Kearton helping us to stay in Swaledale without feeling completely ripped off. Kearton is an unpretentious, efficiently run hotel - it is less than half the price of other hotels in Swaledale but still gives you an efficient, pleasant stay. If I had to mention a negative, it would merely be that the beds in our... More

Just returned from a Bank Holiday stay at hotel, this is our 3rd stay and pleased that with new owners Paul and Wendy that nothing noticeable has changed, even Elsie is still there. Everything was excellent and will be going back again.

Clean and comfortable and clearly well managed hotel. Certainly the best of the places we stayed in our 5 day trip. It was very clean and tidy, the staff were friendly and helpful and the food was excellent. Very good value. Surprisingly no biscuits with the coffee sachets provided! You can't have everything!

Booked 3 days before the visit and there was only one night available - shame, would have loved to have stayed longer. Room clean and comfy, food and service excellent. Will definitely go back and would recommend a visit.

Visited here to shelter from the rain on a long distance walk, and were warmly greeted despite muddy feet and dripping cagoules. Amazing hot chocolate & lovely cakes, at reasonable prices. Drinks came with free home-made ginger biscuits. Free Easter eggs for the children. My son (age 13) declared that it was the best restaurant he's ever been to!

This gorgeous hotel nestles discretely in the beautiful hamlet of Thwaite in Swaledale and is a true revelation: the front door opens into a small bar with a real fire and real ale and it just gets better; beautifully appointed warm and tasteful rooms, comfortable living rooms with roaring fires and a quality restaurant. The owners are very kind and... More
