This was a bit of a last minute booking for a stop over whilst walking in the dales. Set in a quaint little village the inn has a friendly pub atmosphere. Dinner on the evening was excellent with good sized positions and a wonderful dessert. The rooms were basic but very comfortable and a nice hot power shower that was... More

Great location with really helpful staff. The accommodation is basic but very clean and adequate without being glamorous Very helpful staff and a great pub atmosphere. The food is simple but enjoyable. Location is quiet and picturesque with lovely walks.

My husband took me for a weekend away with my sister and her partner for our birthdays. I was expecting a pub with a few rooms above which would be in a great location for the dales. It is so much more. The hotel has about 13 rooms and both of ours were lovely. Very comfy beds and great powerful... More

My wife and I stopped here for a rest as we rode part of "Stage 1" on our tandem. Despite it being before opening time we were allowed to wait around and had a very refreshing half-pint before continuing on our way. Thank you very much to the very friendly barmaid.

Just got back today from two lovely nights at the Wheatsheaf. We took the dog with us they charged £10.00 for the dog to stay. He was able to come and sit under the table at breakfast in the snug area, and dogs are allowed in the bar at night. He was allowed in the room, and the owner offered... More

We have just thoroughly enjoyed a 2 night stay at the Wheatsheaf in Carperby.The inn is reassuringly traditional with mod-cons for those who require them.If you want a 'get away from it all and relax' place to stay then book here. The welcome is warm and the whole ambience of the place is homely and comfortable.This does not mean the... More

Stayed one night last week as a family of 4. Modern, clean, comfortable room. Lovely pub, friendly staff, good atmosphere and quite possibly the best chicken curry I have ever eaten! Fantastic food! Would highly recommend for either a meal or overnight stay.

We stayed for two nights at the end of April. We wanted to stay in the heart of The Dales, and the location was absolutely perfect, so peaceful & tranquil, everything that we had hoped for. The hotel itself was great! It's homely and spotlessly clean. Staff were all very friendly & helpful. We ate ate the hotel both evenings... More

Stopped for lunch & joined by cyclists doing the nearby Tour de France Yorkshire stage(s). Five servings of really good fish & chips - generous portions, freshly & carefully cooked. Washed down with hand drawn beers. Sat outside on the front but interior was also inviting. Staff very friendly and helpful. Excellent visit to a proper Wensleydale Inn!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Wheatsheaf is a traditional, family run inn set in the beautiful countryside of the Yorkshire Dales National Park. Walker and dog friendly, the Wheatsheaf is on a spectacular walking route between the historic Bolton Castle (where Mary Queen of Scots was kept captive in 1568)and the world famous Aysgarth Falls. The Wheatsheaf was also where Alf White (more famously known as the vet and author James Herriot) and his wife had their honeymoon in 1941. Featuring real ales, log fires, and good food, the Wheatsheaf prides itself on its welcoming atmosphere. ... more   less
