I stayed at Crooklands this weekend with my teenage son in a twin room. I only discovered it by chance from reading the (then) one review on this website. I cannot recommend this lovely B&B highly enough. The room I had was spotlessly clean and very comfortable, furnished with lovely touches and with a great en suite. There is a varied tea tray in the room, TV with freeview, hairdryer, water bottle and loads of magazines. Also there's a lounge downstairs for the use of the guests and this is where you have your breakfast in the mornings. The owners are really lovely and obviously this is a labour of love for them - I was doing the three peaks challenge on the Sat morning with a 6.15am start and they were quite prepared to give me breakfast at this ungodly time if I had wanted it. The breakfast when I did have it on the second morning is amazing - homemade yoghurt, fruit, honey from the garden and a fabulous full English. Very reasonable rates too.
